Despite its bold look and bolder ambitions, especially for Walt Disney Productions which was sinking further into irrelevance at that time, ''TRON'' was a commercial disappointment (it didn't lose money, but wasn't the hit they had intended it to be). The proven box-office poison that the Disney name was for anything but outright kiddie stuff at the time, led to the creation of Creator/TouchstonePictures two years later.

''TRON'' has spawned two ([[CanonDiscontinuity mutually exclusive]]) sequels, the 2003 video game ''VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh'' (in which Alan and Lora's son Jethro is transported into the cyber-world) and the continuity consisting of the film ''Film/TronLegacy'' and its tie-ins: (in order of publication) the graphic novel ''TRON: Betrayal'', the video game ''VideoGame/TronEvolution'', and the television series ''WesternAnimation/TronUprising''. In 2015, a new autorunner game called ''Tron: Run/r'' hit Steam Early Access.

* {{Underlighting}}: Used to make the computer world glow. The development team refers to it as backlit animation.

to:

* {{Underlighting}}: Used to make the computer world glow. glow, for the TronLines in the original film, since having lights on the costumes was impractical at the time; ironically, this method ended up being so impractical that it was never repeated for another feature film. The development team refers writers referred to it as backlit animation."backlit animation". [[Film/TronLegacy The sequel]] drops it in favor of having light strips on the suits.

* MuggedForDisguise: An unintentional version occurs when when Flynn attacks one of Sark's guards. When Flynn grabs the guard he absorbs the guard's PureEnergy, turning Flynn's TronLines red and letting him [[DressingAsTheEnemy disguise himself as one of Sark's programs]].

* DramaticPause: Ram gives a particularly good one when Flynn first meets him. You can practically ''see'' the invisible AirQuotes around "guest".

* ArtisticLicense: In computing, bits only have two states. The one in Tron seems to have an additional 'undefined' state.

Added DiffLines:

** Early on, Flynn casually tricks Alan into revealing that Alan and Lora, an unmarried couple, are living together. Pretty exotic for a Disney movie in 1982.
