Screen-worn costumes from Tron: Legacy on display...

In 2010's Tron: Legacy, we returned to the game grid cyberworld of the 1982 movie when the son of famous video-game developer 'Kevin Flynn' (Jeff Bridges) is drawn to his father's old arcade and is pulled into the same digital world, discovering his dad has been trapped in the game for twenty years. Together father and son (played by Garrett Hedlund) must work together to escape his corrupted creation and the deadly programs that lurk there.

These dueling movie costumes were snapped at Disney's D23 Expo in Anaheim, California on August 23, 2019, part of the Walt Disney Archives Heroes & Villains: The Art of the Disney Costume exhibit.

Michael Wilkinson and Christine Bieselin Clark were Costume Designers on the sci-fi sequel.

Trying to create a synthetic world they used nothing organic and even though Jeff Bridges character is supposed to have a Zen-like quality, his clothing appears to be an organic, rough linen look, but it is polyester.

Meanwhile the 'Black Guard' light-suit is all made of a hexagonal mesh, which was a printed fabric made from 3D files. This suit would go on the hard form, then it would go inside the silicon matrix mold and foam was injected into the negative space. The wiring harness was embedded into the mold to produce the torso, then the suit is painted.

Each mannequin also sport an 'Identity or Light Disc' prop, fundamental equipment for the programs in the Tron game grid.

Fans of the movie can also enjoy these other Tron: Legacy movie costumes and props (including another Flynn costume), whilst fans of the original movie can check out these Tron film costumes.
