‘Tron: Legacy’ dance party set for Disney California Adventure this fall
An open call by Disney Auditions looking for hip-hop dancers with martial arts experience, said rehearsals would begin in early September for the new “Tron” nighttime event in the Hollywood Pictures Backlot and the Sun Plaza entrance hub.
The nightly party, with the working title ElecTRONica, would run through the Christmas 2010 release of the much-anticipated movie, reported MiceAge columnist Al Lutz.
ElecTRONica replaces the surprise hit Glow Fest, a booze-fueled dance party scheduled to run through Aug. 22 at DCA. A Disney-fied version of a psychedelic rave, Glow Fest was designed to keep visitors entertained this summer while they waited for the Anaheim theme park’s popular new World of Color nighttime water show to begin.
As part of the ElecTRONica event, the former “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” soundstage may be converted into a neon-illuminated Flynn’s Arcade modeled on the video arcade in “Tron: Legacy” while the former Hollywood & Dine food court could receive an End of the Line Club makeover based on the futuristic nightclub in the film, according to Screamscape.
If the “Tron” franchise reboot turns into a sequel-inducing blockbuster, Flynn’s Arcade could take up permanent residence in the video arcade next to Space Mountain in Disneyland, according to Blue Sky Disney. Similarly, Walt Disney Imagineers have been quietly storyboarding a still embryonic “Tron: Legacy” E-Ticket ride envisioned for 2015 or beyond in Tomorrowland, Blue Sky Disney reported.
