Disney's classic first venture into the field of computer-generated animation. Whizz-kid computer programmer Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges) tries to hack into the ENCOM computer system, but his efforts are continually frustrated by the Master Control Program. One night he is actually transported into the system, where he again comes up against the oppressive totalitarian forces of the Master Control Program, and realises that his best chance of survival in this virtual world is to set out in search of the security program TRON.

- A video game designer trying to prove a big time executive stole his idea is sucked into a corporation's mainframe where programs are personified counterparts of their writers and "users" are subjects of religious faith. A well-crafted and scripted metaphor, TRON benefits from breakthrough computer animation.
- As Disney animated films anthropomorphized animals, giving them the characteristics of humans, "Tron" does the same for things electronic, making the insides of the circuitry of a computer into an entire world.
Laserdisc version is the Collector's Edition, from Disney's Archive Collection.
