Remember the good old days of 2010 when it seemed like we posted a story about TRON or TRON: Legacy every day? With the Blu-rays out now, it feels like a perfect time to go back those good old days, bask in the nostalgia, and talk about what’s next for the franchise, mainly TRON 3. Though TRON: Legacy‘s success was a point of contention, it ended up just about making back its reported $170 million budget in the United States and totaling about $400 million worldwide. Not a super crazy blockbuster, but not numbers Disney can ignore either. Rumors about a sequel began to spread.
Legacy director Joseph Kosinski has been out stomping for the Blu-ray and, in one interview, was pretty frank about where he thinks a sequel would start and what it would contain. He also confirmed that early story talks have begun. Read some of his quotes after the break. Read More »

Tron Legacy hit DVD and Blu-ray this week, and Disney had a few members of the cast and crew out at WonderCon last weekend to encourage people to take a dip in this leg of the Tron revenue stream. Through all the interviews that resulted, there is the looming question of another Tron sequel. No one answered the question definitively, though there were a lot of statements that started with “Well, if we make another one…”
Now Deadline reports that Disney has definitely started work on another Tron film, but that’s all anyone seems willing to say at the moment. Read More »
A couple months back there was word that the DVD for Tron Legacy might feature a bit of footage that expands the Tron storyline and perhaps teases a third film in the series. A couple weeks ago we saw Tron: The Next Day, which fills in some of the backstory between the two Tron films. And now there is another leaked short clip, only about forty seconds in length, that certainly seems to suggest a continuation of the story. Check it out below. Read More »
Yep, you read that right. For the last few weeks there has been a persistent rumor going around that the Tron Legacy DVD and Blu-ray release would feature a teaser for Tron 3. We haven’t run much because we couldn’t confirm it 100%, but someone else got some pretty detailed information that suggests the rumor was true. The info, which is obviously spoilerish if you don’t want to know anything at all, is after the break. Read More »
No matter what your thoughts are on TRON: Legacy, the fact of the matter is, it didn’t bomb. It surely wasn’t the runaway smash hit that Disney was hoping for, especially with its IMAX box office playing such an important role, but according to Box Office Mojo, the film will pull in $150 million domestically by the time you read this and has made just under that internationally. That’s roughly $300 million against a reported budget of $170 million and would put Disney, hypothetically, in the black way before the inevitable DVDs and Blu-rays hit the shelves later this year.
So, does that mean we’ll get to see a Tron Three? According to one source, yes. Read who and what they’re saying after the jump. Read More »
