As a film studio Disney have in recent times increasingly focused on their family friendly cash-cows but Tron: Legacy is something of an exception.
A live-action sequel to the 1982 film about a computer hacker trapped inside a virtual world, it sees Jeff Bridges reprise his role from the original film and Garrett Hedlund play his son.
Kosinski was keen to have Daft Punk compose the film score, saying:
“How could you not at least go to those guys?”
They recorded it with a 100-piece orchestra at AIR Lyndhurst Studios in London and it mixes electronic and orchestral elements.
A teaser trailer for the film featured the duo and showcased the track “Derezzed” from the soundtrack.
On the official Facebook page for the soundtrack, two samples have been posted of ‘Derezzed’ and ‘The Game Has Changed’.
Disney also released this six minute sample of the soundtrack on their site for the upcoming awards season:[audio:http://www.waltdisneystudiosawards.com/audio/tron-soundtrack.mp3]
