With heaps of props from both movies in the series already in the Toy Box, it's about time Disney Infinity 2.0 added a couple characters from Tron, and even if they're from Tron: Legacy.
Call me an old man who's behind the times, but I will always prefer original Flynn, Tron and Sark to the sulking son and sultry warrior woman from the latest attempt at resurrecting the 1982 Disney classic. Alas, it's Sam Flynn and Quorra making their debut this evening in the iOS version of Disney Infinity 2.0, with a March arrival slated for its PC counterpart.
Unlock previous figures in the Disney Infinity series, Sam and Quorra are not going to be physical toys, and the characters are not slated for release on consoles. They're purely digital, which makes a certain sense.
"The iOS version of Disney Infinity has always attracted our largest audience, so we wanted to do something special to celebrate its launch. I can't think of a more appropriate digital exclusive than Sam Flynn and Quorra from Tron," said John Vignocchi, vice president of production for Disney Infinity via official announcement.
Vignocchi is a massive fan of Tron, which is part of the reason you're hearing about these two new characters here first. A couple years back during an interview regarding the original Disney Infinity, I bemoaned the lack of Tron characters using my best impression of the Master Control Program from the original movie.
Which leads us to this. I am so sorry.
At least I'll finally have a pair of characters licensed to drive lightcycles. That's what's really important here.
