Tron Easter Egg - Klatuu Narara Nikto

In the very beginning, the main character sits in his cubicle, shortly before he gets digitized into a games character. On the wall he has the text 'Klatuu narara nikto' which is a reference to the 'alien speak' in the black & white movie 'When the Earth Stood Still'.

1st. It is the office cubicle of Allen (who looks like Tron), not Flynn (who gets lasered into the computer world) 2nd. The sign on the cubicle wall says "GORT KLAATU BORADA NIKTO" (sp?).

Actually in Day The Earth Stood Still he says "Klatuu Barada Nikto" and the Star Wars creature people gave one name to each of the 3 creatures, they didn't change a thing

Actually, including the "GORT", the whole phrase is in an Easter egg for Fire Fox. If you have Fire Fox, type about:robots and it will have a message and the first thing is that whole phrase.

The line is used so often you can not be sure you know all appeareances. :-) It's also used in "Honey, I shrunk the Kids - the TV Show" where it was an "ancient gaelic magic spell" which freed an evil "Great Banshee" or so.

The poster in the background is of Gort the robot in "The day the Earth Stood Still". So yeah it is a reference of the movie...it's a poster for the movie.

It's also the name of a character in Return of the Jedi - one of the Skiff guards I think. He's just called Klatu Nikto though.

Actually, "Klaatu, Barada, Nikto" are all characters in Return of the Jedi. Three individual characters who all had action figures made after them. All three served as skiff guards at the "execution" of Luke and Han on Tatooine. And, yes, these were also the magic words that Ash forgot when he tried to obtain the Necronomicon in Army of Darkness.

Interesting... Whoever did the fx of the text blew the line... the "alien speak" from "The Day The Earth Stood Still" is actually "Klatuu borada nikto", but it sure does look like a TDTESS reference....

This is one of the most copied and referred-to lines of them all. Sometimes it seems it's almost impossible to find an SF movie or series that doesn't refer to the phrase in some way. It was probably a good idea at the time, but it's getting overused now.
