The French electro-duo best known all around the world, as we all know, have released the OST for the new upcoming Disney’s masterpiece, “Tron: Legacy”, sequel of ‘80s “Tron”, and directed by Joseph Kosinski starring Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, Michael Sheen and Bruce Boxleitner.
But there’s a huge music inspiration behind the collaboration between Kosinski and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo &  Thomas Bangalter, and behind the story of some Tron’s characters too, like the glam-rock Kaster, by Michael Sheen.

We met (Daft Punk) early on about three years ago, before there was any script, before there was the visual effects test”, the director said.
It was one of the first meetings of the project. I quickly realized that the guys and I had a good creative vibe. We wanted to create a classic film score that sounded like nothing else. We started on the music very early and built the soundtrack as we were writing the script and storyboarding and pre-visualizing the movie.
Continuing, the director explained that the soundtrack was played during the making of the film. “I was very lucky to have tracks play on set while we were shooting. The film was edited when the music had been composed — there’s a connection between the music and the visuals in this film.

Elsewhere, Michael Sheen has revealed that he based his character on glam rock icons. “My whole life has been inspired by (T. Rex lead singer) Marc Bolan and David Bowie. We talked about the character (and agreed…) that he should be larger than life when he appears. He brings a completely different (element) to the movie” he said.
He’s very chameleon-like. He has many facets and personalities, and you don’t where you stand with him. I like the idea of someone who’s reinvented himself over and over again. So all those things inevitably led me to Ziggy Stardust.
