Trivia: Just after Tron pulls Flynn up onto the solar sailor, there is a shot of the landscape below. A hidden Mickey Mouse head can be seen in a nod to the Mouse House. (01:12:24)

Trivia: Shortly after the lightcycles escape from the arena, we cut to Sark who is staring in anger at a blue map. On the right hand side of the map is Pac Man, complete with animation and sounds from the old arcade game.

Trivia: Peter O'Toole was originally offered the part of Dillinger/Sark. He was very interested in the role, but backed out when he discovered that it would involve mostly acting against a black screen, with all the sets and backgrounds to be added digitally later on.

Trivia: Apparently the real reason Jeff Bridges wears a toga-like garment over his circuit suit in this film is because he produced too much of a bulge in the crotch region while wearing said suit and had to be made to look more child-friendly.

Trivia: As Alan comes into his cubicle, on the wall is a banner reading "GORT, KLAATU BARADA NIKTO", a nod to "The Day the Earth Stood Still".
