Tron: Legacy was profitable for Disney, profitable enough to justify making tron 3, but just barely. On a budget of $175 million, Tron: Legacy Pulled in over $400 million. Not record-setting but not bad either.

Jared Leto says he’s still working on Tron 3
In March 2022 after a long wait screen rent managed to get an update on tron 3 From Jared Leto when the actor was doing press for Morbius. Sadly, Leto didn’t provide a lot of concrete information other than to say that the project hasn’t been forgotten.
They told screen rent“I’m a big Tron fan, and we’re working hard on Tron with our incredible partners at Disney. Just an amazing group of creative people. We’re getting closer. We’re getting closer and closer, more who knows? something could happen [coming] As soon as possible.”
But that was back in March. Since that time, neither Leto nor Disney have offered updates of any kind regarding the potential tron 3, The closest we have to any kind of confirmation tron 3 IMDB page, which still has tron 3 As is happening. In fact, Jared Leto is still attached to the project.
Jared Leto Tron 3. will play in

In Tron: Legacy, we had Garrett Hedlund playing Sam Flynn while Olivia Wilde was on board as Quora. But fans didn’t have to wait long to find out who Leto would play as it was also announced that he would be having a new character, Ares.
You must remember that Ares was actually mentioned Tron: Legacy As one of the resistance leaders. With that part of Leto, it appears that the film may be focusing on his character. Here’s what Leto had to say about his casting tron 3,
“I am struck by such gratitude for the opportunity to bring this film to life, especially as both the original video game and the film affected me so deeply as a young child. I am very excited and proud to be a part of the new chapter. I am very excited and proud to confirm that yes – I will star in Tron. We will work as hard as possible to create something that I hope you enjoy. Everyone will love it. We have some very special ideas for all of you.”
Beyond Leto, no other casting decisions have been made.

Disney’s Music and Soundtrack President Michelle Leib had this to say about bringing back Daft Punk on the Light the Fuse podcast tron 3,
We’re in the big film business, and we don’t make small films unless it’s a big movie idea. We’re basically just after a billion-dollar box office hit… Daft Punk has a television and film development company, and they’re all kinds of things, the businesses they’re in. So, I had lunch with Paul Hahn so that we can move on to an early conversation that we’re looking at Tron 3, now that we’re considering making a sequel to Tron. And we have a good script, I mean a really phenomenal script that we are very excited about. While the timing wasn’t right to do it years ago, I think the timing is right now, and I think we learned a lot from that last film.
Obviously, the soundtrack of tron 3 Important to Disney. Leeb continues, “The right and first thing to do is to try and bring on Daft Punk, and do they want to. And the answer is that they’re always open to anything and everything, but as It comes you have to take it and see what the circumstances are.”

The film was remarkable on several levels, particularly technical. Rumor had it back then that a second tron Was going to be made but it took almost 20 years for the rumor to come true. and now here we are talking tron 3,

Jeff Bridges returns in his role as Kevin Flynn and Clue, a more advanced version of Flynn’s original computer-hacking program, is more powerful and deadly. Bruce Boxleitner also returned as Alan Bradley and Tron.
The sequel rode on Olivia Wilde (Cowboys and Aliens, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone) as Quorra, an iso algorithm that can fight, and Michael Sheen (prodigal son, dolittle) as a flamboyant supermodel program that runs a club on top of the system’s tallest tower called the End of Line Club.
