Tron fans are super bummed right now as word came down that Disney will not be making the third installment of the cult sci-fi series. It had been rumored that things were moving forward with the movie, it seemed as if things were moving ahead with “Tron:Legacy” director Joseph Kosinski returning and stars Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund reprising their roles.
Disney began developing a sequel to “Tron:Legacy” after the movie, made for $170 million, grossed $400 million worldwide. “Legacy” was the sequel to the 1982 sci-fi film that took place inside a computer world known as the grid and starred Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner. The film drew a big cult following and became a notable influence on filmmakers and pop culture.
The main issue seems to be that Disney has a lot of money tied up in live-action films with The Jungle Book,” “Alice: Through the Looking Glass” and “Beauty and the Beast.” All being released within the next couple years.
