In a special video for the Tron Lightcycle Run rollercoaster at Walt Disney World, Tron and Tron: Legacy star Jeff Bridges returned to the Grid.

Bridges appears in the video dressed similarly to how his character, Kevin Flynn, was dressed in Tron: Legacy. The acclaimed actor addresses viewers by describing the Grid — the digital primary setting of the Tron series –and expresses his excitement for the ride.

“The Grid — a digital frontier. I had a chance to journey into this brave new world, and I can tell you this: it was an unforgettable moment,” Bridges says (via EW.) “And now, Tron Lightcycle Run at Walt Disney World invites all of us to, once again, step inside the Grid. But don’t worry, it’s just like riding a lightcycle. Congratulations to the Disney cast members and the Imagineers for bringing this attraction to life. I can’t wait to experience it myself. So, I guess that leaves us with just one question: Who’s ready to race?”

The original Tron was released in 1982 and starred Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner. A sequel, Tron: Legacy, wouldn’t release until 2010. The franchise has since appeared in crossover series like Kingdom Hearts and Disney Infinity and has been the focus of a television show (Tron: Uprising) and numerous video games, including Tron: Identity. The next film, Tron: Ares, is currently in the works at Disney.
