After the release of “Tron: Legacy” in 2010, there was a lot of talk of a sequel to complete the groundbreaking trilogy that began in 1982. Many people (including the stars of the film) assumed he was on his way to making it happen. House of the Mouse as the cast has been confirmed, filming was supposed to be scheduled, and director Joseph Kosinski has spoken more and more about the project. Things got worse in 2015, however, as the game seemed over for Sam Flynn, Quorra, and the other programs and users of The Grid. Even Tron himself, Bruce Boxleitner, has given up hope that Disney will eventually return to cult tech success. However, the man responsible for it all (at least in the movie) seems to believe there is still a chance that a third movie will return after being derezzed.
While speaking with Entertainment Weekly to promote their upcoming film “Only The Brave”, which reunited him with Kosinski, actor Kevin Flynn and legend Jeff Bridges took a moment to respond to the rumor surrounding the third film ” Tron “. While he gave no indication if he was actually back or completely shut down forever, Bridges did share a brilliant idea that would be a perfect fit for the film franchise that pioneered CGI and the combination of live action and animation.
âYeah, yeah, I heard those rumors too. Hope this will happen. I think Joe has the script and everything, you know. Yeah, I don’t know if I’m supposed to talk about it or not. I do not know. It should be the first VR movie, you know? Wouldn’t it be coolâ¦ to see Tron in this world?
By the noise of things, Bridges doesn’t know anything concrete about ‘Tron 3’. As far as we know, this could never happen. But if that was the case, Disney would be doing the characters and the story a huge disservice if they didn’t at least consider this idea. The original “Tron” was revolutionary when it came to filmmaking technology, so it would only make sense for any new chapter to use the newest and coolest tools available. I’m not sure what exactly these tools are for if they even exist, but could you imagine walking into The Grid with the Flynns and Quorra using a VR headset and looking around 360 degrees to see the action? . We might even ride a light bike with our heroes as they try to save the digital world and beyond. I mean, I don’t know how a feature film would work exactly like that in terms of filming or selling tickets or anything like that, but it’s still really cool to think of it.
How would you feel if the sequel to âTron: Legacyâ somehow used VR technology? What are the epic scenes in the franchise that would be made immensely cooler? And do you even want another ‘Tron’ movie? (Spoilers: you totally should.) Speculate in the comments below.
