Disney hosting “Tron” themed party for franchise’s 40th year anniversary
As they get ready to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Tron franchise, Disney will be delivering a one-of-a-kind dance party for those looking to dive back into the iconic cyber world.
In partnership with the San Diego House of Blues, Disney will host an event that caters to both diehard Tron fans and dance music fans. ‘D23 Derezzed – A TRON 40th Dance Party’ is scheduled to take place on Friday, July 22nd, and feature DJ sets from Tron: Legacy music supervisor Jason Bentley and electronic music star Qrion.
It’s no question that the Tron franchise has not just had an enormous cultural impact on the world of movies but also on music. It is one of the few successfully commercial films that features electronic music at its core and allowed artists such as Daft Punk to create a film score that ultimately earned a Grammy nomination for Best Score Soundtrack Album for Visual Media. Both the soundtrack from the original film in 1982 as well as Tron: Legacy in 2010 are regarded as cutting edge and still revered to this day.
Doors will open at 7 pm, with the event going from 7:30 pm to 11:30 pm. Attendees are encouraged to bring Identity Discs, Light Suits and Coded Circuitry Ensembles. Tickets are still on sale, but you will need to become a D23 member to purchase. General member tickets begin at $65, while Gold member tickets begin at $45.
Tickets for the ‘D23 Derezzed – A TRON 40th Dance Party’ can be purchased here.
