Jeff Bridges is back in the “Tron” world.

For a video message about the new Tron Lightcycle roller coaster ride at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Bridges once again became Kevin Flynn from the 1982 sci-fi classic film.

“I had a chance to journey into this brave new world, and I can tell you this: it was an unforgettable moment," he says in the video. "And now, Tron Lightcycle Run at Walt Disney World invites us all again to step inside the Grid. But, uh, don't worry, it's just like riding a lightcycle. Congratulations to the Disney cast members and the Imagineers for bringing this attraction to life. I can't wait to experience it myself. So, I guess that leaves us with just one question: Who's ready to race?”

The new ride arrives before a third movie in the “Tron” franchise that will star Jared Leto.

The ride footage shows patrons climbing on to light cycles that run on a track as lights flash around you, appearing as if you’re in “The Grid” from the world of “Tron.”

Bridges starred in the original movie from the ‘80s and the sequel, arriving in 2010, “Tron: Legacy.”

According to EW the new ride is in a soft opening phase and will open to the public on April 4.
