...Can Be Soothed By A Man's InspiriationEdit
Tron, boiling with rage, feeling extreme pain, and truly confused with having no idea what he was doing, prepared to kill Dyson: Dyson was just as terrifed as we all were! All hope seemed lost. Thoughts rushed though our heads: "What would happen next?!" "What could release Tron from the vengeful curse he was in?!" "What could turn Tron into a program again?!" A memory, that's what! But it's more than the memory that he saw that snapped him out of his vengeful state, it was all our memories:
In 1980 or 1981, a man by the name of John Lasseter coincidentally came across some video tapes from one of the then new computer-graphics conferences, who showed some of the very beginnings of computer animation, primarily floating spheres and such, which he experienced as a revelation. But it wasn't until shortly after, when he was invited by his friends Jerry Rees and Bill Kroyer, while working on Mickey's Christmas Carol, to come and see the first lightcycle sequences for an upcoming film entitled Tron, featuring (then) state-of-the-art computer generated imagery, that he really saw the huge potential of this new technology in animation. After a while, things would continue to grow until the point where they made the first computer animated feature, Toy Story. That's right! It was Tron who inspired that film, and all the heartwarming moments we saw in films like Up and Cars, would not exsist if it wasn't for Tron.
And it's not just Pixar films: films like Tangled, Bolt, Meet The Robinsons, Frozen, and especially Wreck-it Ralph (which came out on the same day as the one this episode aired) need Tron too! All the computer animated Disney films (except Chicken Little) need Tron! And believe it or not The Princess and The Frog needs him as well.
Remembering the promise he made to Walt Disney, Tron dropped the terrified Dyson on the ground, telling him he was only being left alive to deliver a message. However, I don't think Tron forgave Dyson, he'll NEVER forgive Dyson (I sure haven't!), but Beck was right all along: violence wasn't the answer, it never is. And that is why This two-part episode was made. To remind us that revenge is never the answer.
