As seen in the theatrical trailer, Sam's childhood bedroom features an original 1980s Macintosh computer, toys from the original TRON (1982), and a poster for The Black Hole (1979) (another film from the same era as TRON, and a similar Disney foray into science fiction with cutting-edge [at the time] special effects, including computer animation [see trivia for The Black Hole]). Director Joseph Kosinski's next project is a remake of The Black Hole for Disney. The film also ties into the history of the "TRON" films because originally, for the first film, Disney wanted proof that Steven Lisberger could not only direct, but proof that the back-lighting effects to have the live action characters glow worked. Disney lent Lisberger and his company props and costumes from "The Black Hole" (which had recently wrapped) to use for their test film.
