‘Tron’ May Head Back To The Grid For Another Sequel

By  · Published on January 13th, 2011

For those that simply look at domestic box office numbers (and who really does that?), it might appear that Tron Legacy was a failure. Of course, it was a failure in the sense that it didn’t kick the door to the theaters around the country right off its hinges, but it was still a success considering that it pulled in $300 million-ish worldwide and probably sold double that in video games and plastic toys that young children can throw at each other while chanting, “De-rezzzz!”

Tron Legacy needs a sequel, and Disney might be in agreement with that statement if the rumors are to be believed.

The film itself almost seems secondary to the largest beast ‐ the toy creating machine ‐ but with another sequel, everyone involved has a chance to create something that works on the story level as well as for the soundtrack and flashy images. That would be something to look forward to. [Aint It Cool]
