Sam Flynn, the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn, looks into his father's disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 20 years. Along with Kevin's loyal confidant Quorra, father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous. Meanwhile, the malevolent program CLU, who dominates the digital world, plans to invade the real world and will stop at nothing to prevent their escape. Written by

When Sam turns on the power in Flynn's, a jukebox starts playing "Separate Ways" by Journey. The jukebox is a Seeburg First Edition Quadraphonic with a model number of SQS160. It could hold 80 45 RPM records and played 160 songs. The jukebox was first released in 1974 and they have become a collectors item with many sites dealing in jukeboxes. See more
At the beginning of the film, which takes place in 1989, Flynn is talking to his young son Sam. Flynn did not have a son in the original 1982 film and so Sam should not be more than 6 or 7 years old during this scene, however he is clearly much older (played by Owen Best who was 12/13 when he filmed his scenes).
