Way back in 2011 after the success of Tron: Legacy (2010), Disney announced at D23 that Tron 3 was set to release in 2013. Check out the article we wrote about it way back when. Since then, 2013 has come and gone and Tron 3 never got off the ground.
Sorry Tron fans, your director is heading to the Twilight Zone. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Joseph Kosinski, the director Tron: Legacy and the Tom Cruise sci-fi adventure Oblivion, is deep into negotiations to take over the helm for the classic series that originally aired on CBS from 1959 to 1964.
Disney’s D23 expo never really interests me unless they’re talking about another Pirates of the Caribbean, which even now doesn’t matter to me anymore. Tron however is a different matter together. I loved Tron: Legacy even not having watched the original since I was little. It was visually stunning and had a pretty interesting story. Plus, when do you get to see a movie where Jeff Bridges is both the hero and the villain?
If you were a fan of the recent Tron: Legacy movie, then there is no doubt that this is the graphic novel for you. Betrayal not only explains what occurred in the first Tron movie, but covers the time span between that movie and the inevitable betrayal of Flynn by his codified likeness utility Clu.
I didn’t remember much about the original Tron movie. I remembered Jeff Bridges being in it. I remembered people wearing cool looking light up suits of red and blue, and riding motorcycles and what not. But I just really never understood it as a kid, or rather I didn’t try to.
