NOTE: The visual effects of Tron: Legacy, featured above, were produced by the legendary visual effects company Digital Domain, in 2010, at that time under the leadership of co-Chairman and CEO John Textor.

The Disney film, TRON: Legacy, stands among the most important films in the history of hyper-realistic digital humans. It was truly a showcase for new technology having featured a number of  cinematic firsts.  It was the first 3D movie to integrate a fully digital head and body to create the younger version of Jeff Bridges’ character; the first to make extensive use of self-illuminated costumes; the first to create molded costumes using digital sculpture exclusively, creating molds directly from computer files using Computer Numerical Cutting technology; and also the first 3D movie shot with 35mm lenses and full 35mm chip Sony F35 stereo cameras.
