Format: Paperback
First off: this is a self-published book and has black-and-white pictures only but don't let that put you off. This has to be THE most comprehensive account of the making of the film, through Lisberger and his initial concepts, through Disney becoming interested, through pre-production, post and release, and the internal politics of Disney at the time. It has input from practically EVERYONE: actors, technicians, producers, studio execs. It's fascinating. A treasure trove of detail. Get it.

Originally brought this book, as a present, from reviews. Unfortunately it's not as I hoped as its more text than graphic illustration. I was expecting more graphic images.

Useful, though a bit dry in the early sections. A lot of ground covered well though. Would recommend for FX enthusiasts.

The Making of TRON 10 Mar. 2012
By R. W. Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Bill Kallay - Finally gives us 30 year TRON fans a taste of what it was like to be part of making this ground breaking movie. He interviewed as many people as possible giving us in depth stories and trips down memory lane. The photo's are nostalgic and really take you back. I was 16 years old when I saw TRON in theatres and first owned it on RCA Selectivision disc which I still own. I moved on to VHS then DVD and finally Blu Ray. In 30 years TRON remains my favorite movie of all time. I have probably watched it well over 500 times and watched the special feature The Making of Tron over 100. This book is a great addition to my small yet passionate TRON collection. I think Bill Kallay and super TRON fan David Arnspiger should do a book called TRON the collectible and memorabilia achive. Just a thought fROM a 30 year TRON fan. Thanks for the book Bill ... END OF LINE
The movie that changed the filmmaking world forever. 11 Aug. 2014
By eyebyx - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A fascinating tale of the making of a truly groundbreaking film. This book covers Walt Disney Studios' big gamble in 1982 on an untried technology and a unique group of cutting edge filmmakers. With insightful interviews and a detailed look at the very beginnings of the new world of digital imagery, it is a true story much greater than fiction.
Excellent ! 7 Jun. 2013
