* AluminumChristmasTrees: The laser lab, the computer facility, and the ridiculously large security door were not sets and props, but an actual location, Lawrence Livermore Labs. Unfortunately, all of it has long since been replaced.[[labelnote:*]]The hardware that replaced it can be seen as the USS ''Enterprise'''s warp core in ''StarTrekIntoDarkness''.[[/labelnote]]

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 TRON 2.0]]'' (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.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The Grid-Bugs appear once, briefly at the start of the Sea of Simulation sequence, and never again. Yori says that if the Grid-Bugs catch them, they're finished. Common speculation is that they were included only for Midway to use them as [[AscendedExtra an antagonist]] in the [[VideoGame/{{TRON}} arcade game]].
