‘Tron: Legacy 2’ Announcement Imminent

Disney is close to moving forward with a Tron: Legacy sequel Disney's Tron: Legacy is about to pass the $300 million worldwide mark, which has the studio close to moving forward with an Untitled Tron Legacy Sequel announcement.

It is said that Disney is "incredibly close to having its sequel announced," although it isn't said when such an announcement will occur. We reported in November that Disney was planning an animated TV series entitled Tron: Uprising, which will debut on the Disney XD channel in 2012. It was also reported last month that the series will take place right after Clu takes over the grid. A separate 10-part Tron micro-series is also set to debut this fall on Disney XD.

No story details for this Untitled Tron Legacy Sequel have been revealed. It also isn't clear if director Joseph Kosinski will return to direct.

Tron: Legacy was released December 17th, 2010.

Tron 3 comes to theaters in 2016.

      @Monkey no offense but this film will probably blow sh*t if it's made in the next 5 years

          I love Tron Legacy! When I go see a movie, I want to be entertained; not always enlightened with thought and crying when the movie is over. It was a fun, cool thrill ride, and I felt like I got my moneys worth. My son has seen it three times, so far. I would love a sequel, I waited 28 years for this one. Also, don't think this movie did not make money. Its has not even been out a month yet and is still in the top five and think about all the toys, video games, and everything else that is Tron. The DVD-Blu-Ray will be out for Tron Legacy and TRON too. So they will make money on the TRON that was made 28 years ago. They make money from more than just ticket sales...think BIG PICTURE, and you will see. Lets be excited about another Tron movie...Its just FUN! Its an exciting time to be a movie lover. Thats my "glass half full" comment.

              Also the script wasn't that weak. what was weak was the character development in the film. They tried with Sam, and so forth, but overall, the execution wasn't on par. It was Kosinski's first film, so I give it a break. I liked the continuity with Flynn's 80's one liners. Very well done for a summer blockbuster like movie. Bring the pacing up, widen the films run time (possible, because without trying to copy Bridges face onto Clu anymore ,it saves money for better Grid animation) give the characters a real ultimatum ( I didn't quite feel it this time around) and they have a success. :)

              @geek, lol. If they did that, then they wouldn't have the awesome Daft Punk to score the film. :P

                A trilogy? Hmm, not bad. A stronger script would be nice. Oh, and bring back Tron. His cameo wasn't really enough to justify the title, and now that Kevin Flynn is gone, we need him. Other than that, I'm ready for it.

                  Yes! But I do agree with Tron 3 as the title. They can go in many different directions with this one. The subplots (that water thingy), did he survive? Bruce only having a cameo and more of a bigge part in this one, etc etc etc. I grew up with the first Tron CG breakthru, A young Jeff in this one, a more advance 3D maybe for the next one, endless...this deserves a franchise plus the Uprising animation....

                    Call it Tron evollution. I know the video game is called that but Tron Evolution sounds a lot better

                        Kids today can't appreciate the old one because it looks "cheesy." They don't understand that back in 1982, it was practically the pinnacle of CG tech.

                        I guess Tron 3 was too simple for a title. Oh well, I'm going to remain optimistic that the sequels will have something to them

                            "Legacy" was the sequel to "Tron," so this should be "Tron 3," not 'Legacy 2."

                                Simple mathematics proves it made no money. Studios get to keep about 60 percent of the domestic dollars and 40 percent of the overseas dollars. Which means it has made about 150 million dollars so far(that the studios gets to keep). The budget was 170 million and the advertising costs were 120 million. no where near profit.

                                    @e-j-macaranas I know Piranha has made no money and they gave it a sequel. But that doesn't make it right. And we all know the Weinstein Company(company who made Piranha 3D) has no idea what they are doing when it comes to money.

                                      @TheDude1 Piranha made little to no money! I want a sequel for this too.

                                        Another sequel to a movie that has made no profit. Yeah that makes sense.
