Why Disney Gave Up On Tron

If you're new, Subscribe! → http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Looper It took decades, but fans of the 1982 cult hit Tron finally got a sequel with Tron: Legacy in 2010. Not long after, Disney announced a third movie, code named Tron: Ascension, was in the works. Then...nothing, and the studio reportedly pulled the plug in 2015. At this point, it seems Disney might be waiting another three decades before considering its next Tron movie. Here’s a look at why there won't be another light cycle trip around the Grid anytime soon...

When I first saw the motion to Tron Uprising, it was a bit off putting at first, it had this weird digitized motion, but fights were so fluid and awesome, and the freaking music was cool. The story wasn't revolutionary but still very enjoyable. When it comes to Disney shows I wish got another season, I'd actually put this above Gravity falls, and just below Kim Possible.

Tomorrowland doesn't prove shit, that film sucked. Honestly though, the lore of Tron is so amazing, that it pisses me off how it's just been left out. And Tron Evolution was great to me also.

It's such a shame, we can get a bunch of recycled super hero movies and crappy Star Wars film. Just not a unique vision in the world of Tron.

Sorry but you got your facts wrong about Tron Uprising. It canceled because Adam Horowitz was upset that the main viewing audience was people in there 40's like myself. What'd they expect, the original came out in 82...Anyway it had nothing to do with fan drop off.

Disney executive's can't see past their wallets. They put out watered down BS without a good story line with lots of action, dumb downed comedy, and pushing Political Crap on our children. Problem is the sheep cheer for more and more.

I really wish Disney could care more about amazing franchises like this. I feel like if they'd improved on the plot in Legacy it would have KILLED in the box office, obviously warranting a sequel. But so many were disappointed despite the stunning visual effects and soundtrack, which was the big carrier for the movie. But of course they insist on makind bad sequels, remakes, and even sequels to the remakes. It's ridiculous, hardly any good quality stuff has come from disney in the past serveral years, and in turn good movies like this and pottential sequels suffer. Disney needs to get their priorities straight and start producing good content again, and I'm not just speaking for this series. Disney in general just sucks these days.

I tried to buy Tron Uprising on DVD or Bluray but it's not been released. I never saw any Tron Legacy toys in stores and the merchandise available was very thin on the ground here in the UK. It's as if Disney went out of their way to make the series flop. The same marketing and promotional team ruined the chances of John Carter by removing the word Mars from the title and did Tomorrowland in by cluelessly promoting it as being all about Clooney.

I was upset that the 2nd. or maybe third chapter of (Tron) that was titled (TRON: Legacy) was not a big hit at the box-offices. Now I myself & to add my parents, and also my two sisters we all thought it was a great movie to see.
Brian Daleske (1 month ago)
WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THE FACT THAT DISNEY HAS GIVEN UP On The (TRON) Franchise: Now just because the (Disney)company has given up on making anymore (Tron) features; That doesn’t mean that it is impossible for some other entertainment company is not allowed to have a go at trying. An so I strongly feel that some other entertainment company should buy the rights to the (TRON) industry of featured entertaining creations; Be it a cartoon show series, a live-action show series, or better yet movies of it.

I want to create a 3rd person open world tron game set after Tron Legacy and Evolution. You'll be able to customize your program with different helmets, cloaks, suits, the light patterns on the suit, your program's face, and much more. You'll be able to aim and throw your disc, the longer you aim the stronger, faster and more tracking the disc will have. You'll be able to dodge by flipping around, block, and parry, as well as be able to use different weapons such as lighter or heavy disc, light staffs, light swords, and end game weapons like being able to use 2 disc. Multiplayer will have disc wars which will have light cycles, light jets, light tanks, and light runners all with different variations for balance. There will also be duel tournament mode similar to the movie Tron Legacy. I have much more in a game document. I am a huge Tron fan and would like them to bring it back as well as expand the lore more and add more stuff.

It's like Disney can't make a sci-fi movie worth a damn despite how much the company likes to go on about how they're innovators of future technology. Go figure.
Ignis King (1 month ago)
I'm a little scared to admit that full on scifi movies/tv shows are a dying breed that will eventually cease to exist. There'll be plenty of shows and movies that dip their feet in a bit, but nothing that dives right in. I'm not talking about like the stuff that has all that science jargon that gives most people a head ache, a few who nod their head, and the one that fully understands. I mean just a full on scifi atmosphere that strains the ties into the expected/normal that's a fresh experience. Fantasy movies work, but most aren't full on fantasy where its a new world unlike our own.

This makes me sad. I love Tron: Legacy. It is by far one of my favorite movies. I think Disney should take a risk and do it. They ended legacy on a cliff hanger and told us to hang on. They basically are now telling us that they cut the rope and we are on our own.

As one of the few people who played the transfer game, he was downplaying when he said it was sad that it never launched. That game brought so much nostalgia and happiness to me. It actively changed my view on the grid.

It’s not “this type of movie” that’s the problem. It’s the story they chose to tell with it. The writing was sub-par if not having its highlight moments; so in my opinion there just wasn’t any heart or “fun”. Tron was too serious and too dark. This would have been well with some jokes but the tone and beat of it was heightened by the fact that there was absolutely no character growth and no empathy to our hero; who we cared nothing about because he was a recluse. Having his dad back would fix that? How?! No proof in the pudding. And Tomorrowland. Can’t say— didn’t bother to watch it. Lol.

Tomorrow Land failed because of a bad story; not because of uninteresting content IMO. The plot was very rushed. Also a number of features and locations were introduced promising a more in-depth exploration, but ended up being completely neglected. I really liked where they were going with it but the movie just felt very empty or incomplete when I left the theater.

Tron is the ultimate definition of an underrated franchise. The movies and spin-offs are entertaining, its games are great, and you rarely EVER hear anyone talk about it. Legacy was the best thing to ever happen to the franchise and was Disney's hit-or-miss chance to bring it back to life, and they didn't even swing. They're better off just selling the rights.

The plot of the third installment sounds awful. Another Chickified Disney franchise, and "in the real world"? Well why even make Tron minus the Tron computer world?

Tron is one of my favorite movies. The whole “people didn’t seem to like this type of movie” seems like complete bull if you ask me. If Disney didn’t bury Tron in the ground I’m sure PLENTY of people would have loved Tron 3. Heck it may have blown Tron legacy out of the water. Really sad that Disney killed off such a great series.

Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Beauty and the Beast ? ..... Disney buried T R O N for these?!! >:( A studio which doesn't understand what made TRON a cult classic should definitely sell its rights. (But they won't - what if a third film or total reboot by another studio proves them wrong)
Mario37519 (3 months ago)
Buying Star Wars meant Disney no longer needed Tron. Now that Disney and Lucasfilm mistreated Star Wars to the point of no return, I do not want Disney to ruin Tron with the same conformist mindset. They used to be different. For God's sake, remember when their traditional animation studio was a thing? Me neither because Treasure Planet was left to rot!
auroraflash (3 months ago)
Tomorrowland cannot be compared with Tron. The original Tron posters were magic and the second movie brought a nice visual look closer to the posters but gladly different from the original look. Tron Uprising was a little too childish and looked like Batman of the Future... a real life thing would have been better than introducing a third look to the Tron universe by using animations.
Dragon Z (3 months ago)
People tragically aren't all that interested in actual intelligent nerdy science fiction. This is the same reason Futurama kept getting canceled. Star Wars is mostly drama, something people can understand and follow. You have to be a real geek to be able to follow Tron. Which breaks my heart, these movies were like... Perfection for me.
