Ms. Olivia spoke her thoughts, "I was very surprised like everybody else in the audience that watched the completed footage for the first time." Olivia plays Quorra the girl warrior and to the question, "Was the role preparation difficult?" she answered "I imaged Jeanne d'Arc who had both characteristics of innocent girl and the warrior. It was a role worth acting. The film depicts neo-futuristic and cool perspective of the world, and we think that Tokyo is a very place for unveiling TRON: LEGACY 3D Special Presentation.

When Garrett who plays the role of Sam was asked with the question, "Was the physical exercise to remodel your body for the fierce action scene in the film difficult?" Garrett answered, "I had plenty of training at the facility where trainers were all like ninja and I trained body flexibilities and did exercises to gain stamina." He also gave his impression on Japan as, "We just arrived last night but I thought Tokyo is a beautiful city and walking on the Green Carpet is a valuable experience."
