When its theatrical run was over Tron: Legacy finished with close to $400 million worldwide (more than J.J Abrams’ Star Trek, which has a sequel on the way), however whether we see another Tron film will probably depend on the DVD/Blu-ray sales.
Disney hired writers to begin work on a sequel script last April, and it would be a shame to see those plans tossed aside (but only if they learn from their Legacy mistakes, the next film would need a better story, ideally). In a recent interview director Joseph Kosinski was asked about whether we’ll see another film, and he said the story is currently being worked on.
There have been rumors there will be a ‘Tron 3.’ Would you like to come back for a second go at it or are you ready to move on?
Kosinski: I think that we are working on the story now. If we can come up with the right story and a good reason to return, than absolutely. I’d love to go back. But, it probably won’t be the next thing I do.
The next thing he does is likely to be Oblivion, which is currently looking for studio backing following Disney’s decision to drop the sci-fi project.
Today Tron: Legacy is released on DVD and various Blu-ray combinations, and you can purchase it from Amazon via the links below:
