Garrett Hedlund Says Tron 3 May Still Happen After All
Fans of the Tron franchise have been through an emotional rollercoaster recently, as it was first announced that Tron 3 was finally happening, with stars Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde returning from Tron: Legacy. But then it was promptly cancelled, and by all appearances, it looked like the franchise was dead for the foreseeable future. But according to Hedlund, there's still a chance that another sequel could come to fruition, as he hasn't been completely released from his commitment just yet.

Opening quote
"I haven't been told it's totally dead," Hedlund told Comicbook.com. "Ever since we did Legacy, we knew that to have another story follow it up, it had to be concrete and exciting. Disney needed to have the right story to go forward. I think it was going to introduce some things that were as exciting as Legacy was and then some, though."

The Pan star went on to say that he'd be willing to do a sequel at any time, even if it's 30 years in the future:

Opening quote
"Who knows, maybe it'll be like Legacy was to the first Tron, it'll be 30 years, and I'll have my young Flynn CGI face, who knows? But they could do it anytime from now, and I would of course jump back in. Something like that could be quite fun, though!"
Closing quote


We have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, the Tron mythology is generally interesting, and lends itself to amazing visuals, as was seen in the beautiful Tron: Legacy. But on the other hand, the plot and dialogue in the most recent Tron film were idiotic, so we're not sure the franchise has legs at this very moment. Hopefully, if Tron 3 does happen, they'll work a little harder at worldbuilding and character development.
