What the heck is going on with the “Tron: Legacy” sequel?


Tron fans have been dying to know of the franchise’s future following Disney’s silence since discussing a possible future for the franchise at various events. Tron: Legacy performed fairly well in theaters — well enough to justify pushing forwar on Tron 3.

Tron: Legacy’s original screenplay writers seem confident enough that Tron 3 will be greenlit at some point, taking to the Wondercon stage to discuss Tron 3’s screenplay and key plot points.

Both of Tron: Legacy’s screenplay writers — Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis –will not be returning to pen the sequel due to the success of Once Upon a Time, however assure fans that the script is being written:

Adam Horowitz: We are working on a sequel. Eddie and I aren’t writing the sequel — because of [our show Once Upon a Time]we’ve moved to be co-producers on it. But there’s a script being written right now.

Edward Kitsis: Dave DiGilio, writer/producer of the show “Traveler” that was on ABC, is writing it. Joe [Kosinski] is right now shooting Oblivion but we’ve had a lot of meetings and conversations and we’ve seen the first draft of the Tron sequel, sometimes movies don’t happen as quickly as you want… Our hope is to get something going sooner [rather than later].

The writer duo also teased fans looking to learn more about the supposed death of the Tron universe’s creator:

Horowitz: I would say the definition of life and death in the digital realm…

Kitsis: Will be explored in the sequel!

And equally important, the question Quorra fans have been dying to ask:

How big of a part does Quorra have in the sequel?

Horrowitz: Mmm. *Darts away to the next roundtable*

Time will tell if Disney truly does plan to push ahead with the franchise… and we’d say it’s a safe bet that they will. Did you think Tron: Legacy was strong enough to warrant a third installment, and if so, do you plan on hitting theaters to see the film during its release?
