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.

Costumes worn by Antonio Banderas and Gary Oldman in The Laundromat on display...

In director Stephen Soderbergh's tale of bribery, corruption and money-laundering for Netflix, Meryl Streep stars as the widowed 'Ellen Martin' investigating an insurance fraud which leads her to a pair of Panama City law partners, Antonio Banderas 'Ramón Fonseca' and Gary Oldman's 'Jürgen Mossack', who are exploiting the world's financial system for their and their clients own gain. The 2019 biographical comedy-drama is based on the Panama Papers scandal, where the details of hundreds of thousands of offshore entities of wealthy individuals and public officials, that were used for fraud, tax evasion and dodging international sanctions, were published in April 2016.

Screen-worn costumes from A Wrinkle in Time on display...

In Ava DuVernay's 2018 fantasy film adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's 1962 novel, A Wrinkle in Time, Storm Reid plays teenager 'Meg Murray' who travels across the universe with her younger brother and new school friend in order to rescue her missing scientist father from 'The It'. She is aided in her quest by three astral travelers, Mindy Kaling's 'Mrs. Who', Oprah Winfrey's 'Mrs. Which' and Reese Witherspoon's 'Mrs. Whatsit', who explain The It is the embodiment of all the evil, greed, anger, pride, selfishness and low self-esteem in the world, which also takes the form of Michael Peña's 'Red' or 'The Man with Red Eyes' on the planet Camazotz.
