In a recent interview, director Rich Moore revealed that he had originally wanted a Tron cameo in Wreck-It Ralph.

At the D23 Expo last week, speculation ran rampant about what new films Disney would announce. Two years ago, D23 was where they officially announced Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and this year, we got the confirmation of two upcoming Pixar movies. One thing that wasn’t mentioned, at least by the Disney executives, was Tron 3, a sequel to Tron: Legacy. We know writer David DiGilio was hired to write a script but nothing is expected to be made official until the new TV show, Tron: Uprising, hits in 2012.
But while the executive were mum when it came to Tron 3, the man himself wasn’t. Bruce Boxleitner who played the title character in both movies, told a fan at the convention that the third film is “a done deal” and even dropped a release date: 2013. Don’t believe us?

Stock in Tron — elevated in value over the years thanks to the forgiving nature of nostalgia — took a dive after the release of Tron: Legacy. But Disney isn’t giving up on the property, and is moving full speed ahead with an animated series that explores the Grid, aka the digital world at the core of the two films. A good idea, as animation could turn out to be the ideal medium in which to explore the hidden corners of the Grid.

Last year, before Tron Legacy was released, Disney shot some footage that didn’t appear in the film, but will show up on the DVD release that hits in April. Some of that footage became Tron: The Next Day (Flynn Lives Revealed), which is on YouTube now. You can watch the ten-minute short after the break. Read More »
Part of the whole plan with Tron: Legacy was to launch a multi-platform new franchise which would span the movies, potential sequels, video games, animated television projects and maybe even a theme park attraction.
The animated series Tron: Uprising voice cast includes Elijah Wood, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Mandy Moore, Paul Reubens, Nate Corddry, Lance Henriksen and Tron himself Bruce Boxleitner. It is directed by Charlie Bean, Joseph Kosinski and Sean Bailey, and is written by Tron: Legacy writers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. The story is set between the original Tron and before Tron: Legacy.
The first trailer is included on the new Tron Legacy DVD/Blu-ray set. Watch it now embedded after the jump and please leave your thoughts in the comments below.
