Flynn Lives is an ARG to promote TRON: Legacy. The fictitious Flynn Lives Organization runs the website that contains several news articles that explain what happened plotwise between TRON and TRON: Legacy. The website contains a secret section as well that provides voice clips of Kevin Flynn referencing his achievements in the TRON system, as well as the TRON: Legacy VFX Concept Test Trailer in HD.

"The Next Day"
The full chronology of the Flynn Lives movement has been revealed in a special feature on the Blu-ray of TRON: Legacy, named TRON: The Next Day. It is revealed that Roy Kleinberg, the user of Ram from the original film, has founded the movement, secretly funded by Alan Bradley (known on the Flynn Lives forums as ISOlated Thinker), and shows what has happened at ENCOM after Flynn's disappearance. The short film also features some scenes filmed as part of the real-world ARG, mainly the ENCOM Press Conference at WonderCon 2010. At the end of the video, Alan confronts Roy, deciding to shut down the movement and offering Roy a place at ENCOM. This scene is said by many fans to set up, and link to, what potentially will be the third TRON film.
