A computer hacker is abducted into the digital world and forced to participate in gladiatorial games where his only chance of escape is with the help of a heroic security program.
The "User" played by Dan Shor is listed in the credits only as "Popcorn Co-Worker", but information revealed about the possible TRON: Legacy (2010) sequel reveals this character's actual name to be Roy Kleinberg.
Boy in Video Game Arcade:
All right, give me room. Here we go.
When the escapees first spot the water, Tron runs to it, then Flynn, then Ram. But when Flynn reaches it, Ram is already there.
Certain versions of the European/American re-release have the explanatory title cards establishing the viewer into the world of the Programs and Users.
The 20th Anniversary DVD edition includes a deleted love scene: Tron and Yori go to her apartment, where she pushes a button on the wall, the walls disappears and her uniform changes into a different costume. Tron ask her " How do we get into the I/O Tower". She replies "First, you have to go all the way down" as she moves her hand down Tron's body. Also included are a partially completed "morning after" scene (after Tron visits Yori's apartment, Tron tells her "It's time to go"; however all dialog tracks for this short scene are lost), and the "light cycles" scene with its music (music that also shows up in the "here goes nothing" scene, and which Wendy Carlos would later use as the basis of one movement of her "Moonscapes" suite), on the auxiliary DVD. Also included on the auxiliary DVD is a new 90-minute "making of" feature, with cast and crew interviews, and an alternate version of the end credits, with Wendy's close music playing in its entirety, instead of cutting to Journey after the organ solo.
