Disney has decided not to make Tron

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.
