With TRON: Legacy on the horizon, people are starting to put together their own sweet tributes to the franchise. These people—in this case Kiel Figgins—put together a short but very sweet disc battle. Stuff like this provides a double-edged light-disc. On the one hand, videos such as these crank up anticipation for the upcoming movie. On the other hand, people may wonder why TRON: Legacy doesn’t have as much imagination as these kinds of videos, but judging from the trailer, I don’t think that’s going to be too much a problem.
In any event, this is a pretty sweet animation and I look forward to seeing what other TRON fans put together in the months ahead. Hit the jump to check it out. TRON: Legacy opens on December 17th.

For those just tuning in, here’s the official synopsis for TRON: Legacy:
TRON: LEGACY is a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world that’s unlike anything ever captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn (GARRETT HEDLUND), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (JEFF BRIDGES), looks into his father’s disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 25 years. Along with Kevin’s loyal confidant (OLIVIA WILDE), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.
Directed by Joseph Kosinski, TRON LEGACY also stars Bruce Boxleitner, James Frain, Beau Garrett, and Michael Sheen.
