REPORT: Tron 3 May Be Rezzurrected at Disney
As soon as you see the word 'Tron', chances are that the now-iconic Derezzed starts playing in your head. TRON: Legacy was a magical thing for fans of the cult classic and new fans alike, from the visuals to the soundtrack to Jeff Bridges' monologue about the Grid. So when Disney announced that Tron 3 was in the works back in March of last year, fans were ecstatic...followed by deeply depressed when it was quickly announced that the project was cancelled. Soon after, a petition sprung up on Change.org to revive the sequel (garnering over 13,000 signatures) and stars from the previous movies said that the series was not completely dead. It was enough to give fans a glimmer of hope.

Now, a rumor has sprung up that Tron 3 is making some rumblings. Fans noticed that the official Tron Facebook page has posted a little teaser image of the old Flynn's shop with a titillating message:




And then a lightcycle 'mysteriously' appeared in James Gunn's conference room on the Disney lot:

We may be reading too closely into this, but when a lightcycle "mysteriously" shows up in a director's room, there's a chance that it may mean something. Taken together, these two pieces of info may be clues that somewhere, deep within the giant dream factory that is Disney, people are talking about reviving Tron 3. We'll be keeping an eye out for more developments, but until then, we'll be listening to the TRON: Legacy soundtrack on loop, sadly painting glow-in-the-dark lines on a bike helmet.
