Director Joseph Kosinski Weighs in On Tron: Legacy Sequel

It’s been 10 years since Tron: Legacy and Disney still hasn’t produced a sequel. The film was a modest hit with $400 million worldwide, but the powers that be decided to pull the plug on the follow-up at the very last second — a move that hasn’t sat well with the film’s fans. There’s still hope, faithful Tron followers, as director Joesph Kosinski reignited sequel talk in a recent interview with ComicBook.com.

“There’s always been an interest since Legacy [for a sequel]. There’s always been talk and murmuring of doing another and continuing the story. I was in China a few years ago and saw them building the TRON ride in Shanghai, which, apparently, is pretty amazing, I would love to experience that at some point. I think it’s still a nice jewel in the crown of Disney IP and I think there are fans and people petitioning and pushing to continue it inside the halls of Disney. So I think it could happen. Like anything, it just needs the right confluence of … it’s all about timing and the right elements and everything’s got to come together for a movie to happen.”

Obviously, this isn’t a confirmation that anything lingers on the horizon. But, with Kosinski quietly putting together a resume — and guiding one of the year’s most anticipated films in Top Gun: Maverick — perhaps he can use some of his newfound leverage to convince the Mouse House to give us more CGI Jeff Bridges. Perhaps on Disney+?

“I think it’s possible and I think it’s worthy of it,” Kosinski continued. “I think there’s enough ideas in the franchise, and the fact that it is so unique and nothing else looks or sounds like it, that TRON story. There is, I think, a future for the franchise and I hope they keep making them.”

Tron: Legacy starred Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde and Jeff Bridges. The film served as a follow-up to Disney’s 1982 cult classic Tron, in which Kevin Flynn enters a computer game in order to stop an executive at his company from stealing his work. The long-delayed sequel, released some 28 years later, continued the events of the first film but shifted the focus to Flynn’s son Sam. The film is notable for its astonishing visual aesthetic, terrific musical score and unique action set pieces.
