TRON’s Legacy for Rescued Dogs

Written by PETA | December 15, 2010

I’m one of the few folks who saw TRON in the theater during its original 1982 release. Of course, after it came out on video, the film acquired a fervent following. In fact, it has become so popular that it has now inspired a brand-new sequel, TRON: Legacy, which opens on Friday. As if I wasn’t already psyched enough to see it, I’ve learned that when the main character, Sam, is reunited with his dad after 20 years, Sam says that he has a dog to whom he is devoted and who “is a rescue.” It’s a smart way of showing that Sam’s a great guy. Kudos to the filmmakers for making the point that people who care about animals always adopt and never buy.

    well if you saw the entire movie you wouldnt be giving any kudos. in one scene they are dining and chatting cordially with a murdered baby pig served as main plate in the middle of the table.

    It should also be noted that actor Garrett Hedlund, who played the role of Sam, proudly grew up on a beef and turkey farm in Minnesota according to an interview on the Tonight Show.

    I saw the midnight showing, totally AWESOME. Anyone notice how Cora said she was a rescue too? Brilliant

  • Jackie says:

    I have noticed with my last trip to Disneyworld, how up to date they really are with the trends. I’m pretty sure most if not all their restaurants now offer vegan options too! 😀

    Good work,Disney for spreading the word about adopting from shelters.

    I didn’t see the first movie, but plan on seeing this one when I get the money. It’s nice to know that animal care is getting more recognition.
