Disney Exec Gives Update on 'Tron 3' - Will It Happen?!

Fans have been hoping to see another movie in the Tron franchise for years and a Disney music executive is giving an update on the status of a third film.

Tron: Legacy was released in 2010 and the third movie was greenlit by Disney in 2015, though the project was scrapped months later.

There were rumors years later that Jared Leto was going to star in a reboot of the franchise, but that didn’t pan out.

Disney music executive Mitchell Leib said on the Light the Fuse podcast that he thinks a third movie might happen at Disney+.

“Now with Disney+, I think there’s opportunities to be creating content that we otherwise wouldn’t have been able to create, you know because we’re in the movie business,” he said (via Digital Spy). “Disney+ I think is going to afford us the opportunity to expand and get much more diversified in the kind of content we can create.”

Daft Punk did the music for Tron: Legacy and Leib had a meeting with the group’s manager to talk about the film.

“We’ve got a great script, I mean a really phenomenal script that we’re very excited about,” he said. “Whereas the timing wasn’t right to have done it years ago, I think we feel like the timing is right now, and I feel like we’ve learned a lot of lessons from that last movie.”

“The right and first thing to do is to try and bring Daft Punk and would they want to,” he said. “And the answer is they’re always open to anything and everything, but you gotta take it as it comes and see what the circumstances are. We don’t even know who would be directing it, I mean we’re hopeful Joe Kosinski would come back and do another one.”

Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, and Jeff Bridges starred in Tron: Legacy. The movie grossed $400 million worldwide.
