Last week we posted the cover art for both Tron and TRON: Legacy on DVD/Blu-ray. However, while we had the cover art, we didn’t have the release date, and Disney hadn’t yet announced what extras would be included. That all changed today.
That’s because Disney has just announced Tron and TRON: Legacy will street on April 5. The original Tron will be a 2-Disc DVD and/or Blu-ray, while TRON: Legacy will have a 1-Disc DVD and 3 different versions hitting Blu-ray. You’ll be able to choose from a 2-Disc, 4-Disc or a 5-Disc version. For what’s included on each edition hit the jump:
Rather than have me repeat what Disney sent me, here’s the press release. As you’ll see, lot’s of cool stuff will be on these Blu-rays. In addition, I think the extra scenes that add to the storyline of TRON: Legacy are called “The Next Day: Flynn Lives Revealed.” But that’s just a guess. Either way, I’m buying either the 4 or 5-Disc Blu-ray. For pictures of the limited edition packaging, click here.
