Variety has just reported that Disney has announced the release date for “Tron Legacy” as Dec. 17, 2010. This is a very ballsy move on Disney’s part as that weekend is already chock full of big flicks including “Green Hornet”, “Smurfs”, and “Yogi Bear.”

Disney teased fanboys with clips from “Tron Legacy” at Comic-Con this summer. The f/x heavy pic is considered both a reboot and a sort of sequel. Mouse House slotted several other films, including Andy Fickman’s “You Again,” which opens Sept. 24, 2010.
