The Third Installment in the ‘Tron’ Franchise Is Finally Moving Forward

It’s been 13 years since Disney released the follow-up to the 1982 hit classic Tron. The sequel film did well at the box office (not a smash hit, I know) and was able to relaunch that franchise back into modern society. Tron: Legacy (2010) saw the son of Kevin Flynn figure out the whereabouts of his Father and venture back into the world of Tron through the Grid. The use of CGI and practical effects made this movie visually stunning. The music from the French music duo Daft Punk gave the film a futuristic and dystopian vibe that has still held up after all these years.

The third installment of the Tron franchise has been up in the air since being announced years ago but has had trouble launching off the ground due to rocky relationship issues with the Walt Disney Company. Director Joseph Kosinski, who recently directed Top Gun: Maverick (2022), was chosen to lead the next installment but ultimately left the movie. Disney then decided to relaunch the franchise and poised another director, Garth Davis (Lion), but those plans also fell through. After no updates past 2020, Disney has finally revealed much information, including a title, for the upcoming Tron: Legacy (2010) sequel.
