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."

Bruce Boxleitner, who plays the title character Tron, gives a general update on where the follow-up to Tron Legacy stands:

"The last movie didn't end. It actually started the next movie and then went to black. It's in the works. Anything could happen, but all I can say is, it's in its formative stages. [Director Joseph] Kosinski, who is slated for it, he's shooting another movie now, and then they'll get around to doing that. I think somewhere around 2014, maybe. I'm talking way out of school here, but they can't shoot me because I'm Tron." [I Am Rogue]

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.

Bruce (TRON/Alan) & Cindy (Lora/Yori) will be at Megacon in Orlando, Florida on March 25th - 27th. You'd think with the Blu-Ray DVD coming out Disney would have a contest or give out DVD's there or something! (source)

Cindy will also be at Wondercon in San Francisco, April 1st - 3rd (source)  [SOURCE]
