TRON: LEGACY Director Joseph Kosinski Still Believes A Third TRON Movie Could Happen

After reports that plans for a TRON TV series on Disney+ were scrapped by the studio, TRON: Legacy filmmaker Joseph Kosinski remains optimistic about a sequel to his movie eventually becoming a reality!

In 2010, TRON: Legacy grossed $400 million on a $170 million budget, a box office haul which should have guaranteed a sequel. Production was even slated to begin in 2015, but Disney would pull the plug after Tomorrowland bombed and the studio got cold feet about pushing ahead with another ambitious sci-fi tentpole. 

When ComicBook.com caught up with TRON: Legacy director John Kosinski, the filmmaker made it clear that he remains invested in making a sequel of some sort happen one day. 

"There's always been an interest since Legacy [for a sequel]. There's always been talk and murmuring of doing another and continuing the story," he explained. "Like anything, it just needs the right confluence of...it's all about timing and the right elements and everything's got to come together for a movie to happen." 

Noting that TRON remains a big part of the Disney brand thanks to the TRON Lightcycle Power Run which currently resides in Shanghai Disneyland and will debut in Orlando's Disney World next year, Kosinski pointed out that, "I don't ever see TRON being something where you pump one out every two years. You just can't. They're too hard to make."

"It's got to be a passion project and it's got to really be reaching for something different and innovative and ambitious," he concluded, "because that's in the DNA of it."

A TRON reboot was considered by Disney, as was a Disney+ TV show, but neither came to fruition.
