The 80's movie is what most people think started the Tron trend but its actually from ancient times, the 1600's to be exact. There are tales of people getting sucked up inside a computer and living in the computer world but of course back then, the computer was only an abacus. These scrolls were discovered in the 1970's by explorers in China. The story was far from interesting, in the 70's people simply considered it boring. It was only then did one of those explorers, Steven Lisberger, decide to make a movie. That movie was released in 1982 and very few people seem to know that its actually based on a true story.
