So multiple sources are reporting that Disney has greenlit a script for a Tron: Legacy Sequel. This would be the 2nd or 3rd film in the series, depending on if you count the first film (and I think you should). Although I’m sure they are no where near deciding on a name for the film, I humbly submit TRON: Next. It could feature the gang getting lost in Steve Jobs attic. :)
Okay. Maybe not.
TRON: Legacy cost $320M to produce and market, yet the film and only grossed $398M world wide. So it wasn’t exactly a huge money maker for the mouse in theaters. However, the toy sales have been outstanding and DVD sales are expected to be good (even though Tangled is currently outselling TRON). So let’s say Disney is following the Cars model on this. Produce a sequel with the goal of selling more cool toys. Are you down with that?
