So why should anybody care about "YORI," a character from the original 1982 TRON movie now that there has been a brand new update? Why should we? First of all, you must ask yourself just who was this "YORI" and what was she in this old TRON movie. She is one of a trio of heroes who defeated the MCP, and of course "Tron's" main squeeze. The first question is, wasn't she more than that? Yes, as a matter of fact, she was.

As each character played a dual role in TRON, portraying a 'real world' person, and an 'electronic' person in the "Grid," the alter-egos or 'avatars' if you will must be understood within the context of the story. Alan Bradley, played by Bruce Boxleitner was a "User" of a program in the computer called "Tron." Kevin Flynn was a "User" of a program called "CLU," and of course Cindy Morgan played Lora Baines, who we must assume was the "User" of a program called "Yori."

Yori Lives has decided to compile a list of plausible reasons why Yori was not in TRON LEGACY. Some of reflect rather negatively on Disney and Jospeh Kosinski, while others leave them a way out. These are nothing but speculative simple possibilities which may or may not be the truth.

  • 1. The idiots didn't watch the first Tron movie, and they have no idea who Yori is.
  • 2. They forgot. While they were busy figuring out how much crap in the movie will be 3-D and how to do it, they almost forgot about Tron himself, Bruce Boxleitner as well.
  • 3. They decided that Yori would get in the way of the other female characters in TRON LEGACY, and in their uncreative ignorance assumed that having any female character in a film means that she must be a sex-symbol and they couldn't figure out how to work a third sex symbol into the script.

I've recently come across an article on tumblr concerning TRON 3 and while there's no concrete plans outside of possible ideals being thrown around for the script (which I hope they spend a good deal of time on) about Quorra and Dillinger Junior, let's just say for arguments sake that Yori and Lora would be included in these plans as well. (prays fervently that she is.)
  • What roles do you think either the original TRON heroines could play opposite Quorra and the rest of Legacy's surviving cast of heroes?
  • If Tron survived the fall into the sea of simulation, how do you think his and Yori's reunion would go down (assuming he gets ported back to the ENCOM server)?

Whatever Alan knows, it was not enough for him to put all the clues together and rescue Flynn.  Obviously he would have wanted to.  But movie evidence says that no one touched the Grid computer since Flynn last activated the laser. 

No matter what Flynn has or hasn’t told Alan, it seems very unlikely that Alan would miss the probability that Lora’s digitization laser was involved in a disappearance with no evidence.  He had to be aware of Flynn's interest in it. 

So the question is, how much does Alan know about the programs' world? 

Three possible scenarios to think about... )

For unspecified reasons, most likely concerning her skills as an engineer or the creation of the digitalization laser, Lora was offered and accepted a job opportunity in Washington in graphic novel/prequel TRON: Betrayal (2010).

Safe to say, regardless of which Washington her job is actually stationed (Washington state or the Washington D.C.), it's a long ways from Los Angles, California and her statement that she and Alan would "make it work" (their relationship) pretty much implied that she would be living there as well as working.
