When Tron: Legacy finally hits screens at the end of the year, you’ll have more than just director Joe Kosinski and screenwriters Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz to thank; it turns out, the finished version has received an emotional upgrade from the fine folks at Pixar.
Entertainment Weekly has revealed that, in March, Disney screened a rough cut of the movie to Pixar employees including John Lasseter, Ed Catmull, The Incredibles and Ratatouille writer and director Brad Bird and Toy Story 3 screenwriter Michael Arndt amongst others, which led to Bird and Arndt writing new scenes for last month’s reshoots in order to strengthen the story’s emotional and character beats.
This isn’t the first time outside hands have helped on the movie; Empire Magazine has previously confirmed that David Fincher has also seen an early cut and offered advice. This can only make the final product better, right…? I shouldn’t be worried about the movie needing so much outside help in the first place, right…?
