Tron 3 is coming (and Garrett Hedlund is confirmed to come back)

http://www.slashfilm.com/garrett-hed...ynn-in-tron-3/

Yeah, are we gonna break this now? Disney’s very excited. That’s about that. You know, yeah, I’m very excited, Disney’s very excited.
This is happy news (at least for me). Tron Legacy may had not had the best of plots, but the visuals were mesmerizing, and the musical score was nothing short of superb (IMO).

The news certainly confirms that the story will continue where we left off in Tron: Legacy, with the son of Flynn bringing a computer program out into the real world and the implications of that.
Call me intrigued.

Cool. No, it wasn't the best or most original movie, but it was beautiful to look at. At least once.

Re: Tron 3 is coming (and Garrett Hedlund is confirmed to come back)

I'm excited. I enjoyed "Tron Legacy" a lot despite some of it's problems, and the possibility of Daft Punk scoring the sequel is exciting as well. I hope they touch upon some of the plots that the viral videos suggested. This has been one of my most anticipated sequels.

I just hope there's more of Bruce Boxleitner in both his roles.

I never saw the original Tron, but Legacy did a good job of introducing me to the universe. It wasn't amazing, but it was decent enough to see. I'm not opposed to another, but I admit I will probably end up waiting for a rental.

I'm liking the TRON: Uprising cartoon better than Legacy, even though I dislike its character designs. The show's writing is smarter than the movie's, and Tron himself is actually a regular character (voiced by Boxleitner).

Agreed. Uprising is shorter, slicker and at times the writing is downright clever. Hoping they keep it going after the first year.

It would be nice if they got Tron to say his catch phrase: "Do it again and do it better!"

If they need comedy, they can always CGI Elijah Wood's face on some stunt man as a Beck cameo.

The next question is are they ever going to get around to a sequel to that other early 80's early era CGI film "The Last Starfighter". No doubt they'll just remake it.

Fantastic. I thought Tron Legacy was excellent. Take my money, please.

Amen. That's really my my only criticism of Tron: Legacy. Not nearly enough Bruce Boxleitner and barely any Tron.

Here's hoping Daft Punk returns. Their score is incredible.

I also hope they follow up the Dellinger Jr. set-up with Cillian Murphy.

Re: Tron 3 is coming (and Garrett Hedlund is confirmed to come back)

The viral videos that were released would certainly suggest that Bruce will be back, along with Ram since it was revealed that he was behind the Flynn Lives campaign, and father and son Dillinger were shown texting to each other regarding Sam's emergence. I'm hoping that the new writer will follow up on these things.

Re: Tron 3 is coming (and Garrett Hedlund is confirmed to come back)

The problem with lack of Tron in Tron Legacy basically boiled down to budget and time: only so much money and post production available to create one digitally de-aged character. Thus, the story of Flynn and Clu 2.0 had to take center stage. De-aged Boxleighter was seen only in grainy flashbacks, without the resolution required to show his face up close.

But in a recent interview, Bruce Boxleighter himself remarked that people should be patient; Tron Legacy was only one act of a larger story, and that the ultimate fate of Tron himself was going places in the arc the writers had planned out.

Now that the story of Flynn Sr. and Clu is wrapped up, Tron 3 would be wide open for the CG work required to place a restored Tron front and center as a starring character.
