Wodu reported early 2009 that the Parisian duo Daft Punk was signed to write the original music score for Tron 2.0 (since retitled Tron Legacy), Walt Disney’s upcoming sequel to the groundbreaking 1982 animation cult hit which was scored by electronic music icon Wendy Carlos. And now, with great excitement, we bring you the first listen of this eagerly awaited soundtrack:
Update: Disney contacted us and asked that we remove the audio from this page, but you can still scroll down to view screen grabs.
Daft Punk’s members Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter have been involved in various films before, but Tron Legacy will be their first complete feature film score. The film, scheduled for a December 2011 release in Disney 3D, is helmed by Joseph Kosinski and will feature Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde and Beau Garrett. Tron Legacy will play as the “next chapter” after the first film, with Wilde starring as one of the heroes trying to help fighting the Master Control Program, the evil intelligence protocol that was the nemesis in the 1982 film.
