TRON 3: Joseph Kosinski Says Sequel Is Still Possible

Jeff Bridges Tron Legacy

Joseph Kosinski Offers Hope And Story Details For TRON 3

TRON: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski states that there is still a chance that Disney will make TRON 3 at some point.

With the last film released five years ago, it would appear that the studio has lost interest in continuing the story further. In fact, the last thing Disney had to say about a sequel was that it was putting it on ice after Tomorrowland, its last live-action science fiction film, bombed and made the company reconsider the viability of the subgenre.

However, if remarks made by the film’s director at special screening of it are anything to go by, there is a possibility that we may someday see another TRON installment. Calling the planned project “TRON: Ascension“, Kosinski explained that the script was “80% completed” and that Disney’s financial situation, thanks in no small part to its acquisition of Marvel and Star Wars, has changed dramatically since Legacy’s release, meaning the studio may be more amenable to a third TRON movie.

Per Superherohype:

“I guess I can say that ‘TRON 3’ is in cryogenic freeze,” explained Kosinski. “So, it’s there. It’s not dead. It’s alive, but it’s sitting there, waiting for the right time to move forward. I mean, you have to remember that when we made ‘TRON: Legacy,’ Disney did not own Marvel. Disney did not own Lucasfilm…they own everything now.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
