Tron: Legacy Director Believes There’s Still a Chance for Tron 3
Ten years after the official release of Tron: Legacy, the level of interest in a sequel to the Disney sci-fi movie is rising. Or at least, that’s what Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski believes. In a recent interview with Comicbook, Kosinski stated that sooner or later the right elements for a sequel will come together since the franchise has plenty of ideas.
“There’s always been an interest since Legacy [for a sequel],” Kosinski said. “There’s always been talk and murmuring of doing another and continuing the story. I was in China a few years ago and saw them building the Legacy ride in Shanghai, which, apparently, is pretty amazing, I would love to experience that at some point. I think it’s still a nice jewel in the crown of Disney IP and I think there are fans and people petitioning and pushing to continue it inside the halls of Disney. So I think it could happen.”
Per Kosinski, the Tron franchise has always been ahead of its time, and he expects the third movie to have the same ambition as its predecessors.
“That’s a fundamental requirement of a Tron movie, is it needs to be ambitious on a filmmaking level and hopefully on a narrative level, and the ideas behind it,” he added. “Steven Lisberger’s ideas for the first movie were so ahead of their time. I think it’s imperative that that be a part of any Tron movie. 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.”
Indeed, they’re hard enough to make that a third one seems unlikely at the moment. But with Star Wars movies on hiatus for now, maybe Disney could use another active sci-fi property.
