Disney owns a lot of cool things today, but forty years ago, all they had was Tron. As the decades have gone on, and the company has swallowed IP after IP, it felt like the stylistic cyberpunk universe they originally created would be forgotten and buried by Star Wars and Marvel stuff. At least I personally never expected any movement on Tron 3, but I’m pleased to report it’s being considered.
Disney is starting to talk about Tron 3 again. You may recall we’ve been here before. Whispers of a third Tron have been around since the second movie was released, and thirteen years is a long time to be disappointed. But they think they can get it into production this time, to the point that they have a shooting date set for late summer.
