The movie "Tron: Legacy" is set to hit theaters December 17, and Disney's first foray into the world of comic books as owner of Marvel will come after that. A prequel to the movie, "Tron: The Betrayal" is a two-part graphic novel slated to start up where the movie left off.
Execs feel fans won't be disappointed with the new, Disney-owned offering. Tron and Kevin Flynn are said to be reunited, and Tron is to assist Kevin with maintaining order of both the Grid and Encom.
In a quote from Marvel's Senior Vice President of Development, Marvel Publishing is "excited" about Disney's first comic book with them; the VP also goes on to say that "Tron: The Betrayal" promises to be "an action-packed thrill-ride that will not disappoint."
