    From a business perspective it's a very stupid move. I am sure the chinese are not all to happy about this either considering one of their headliners for shanghai is based on the attraction.

    Well all-in-all this decision makes sense. Personally I thought the second movie was extremely boring (they kinda threw everything they had going for the film in the first 45 minutes of a two+ hour movie). Also, lets not forget Tron Legecy came out in 2010 (before Disney acquired both Marvel and Star Wars). During that time all they could rely on for live-action movies were PotC, Tron, and a hand full of uninspired films such as Old Dogs. Now with Marvel phase 37 and Star Wars: the never-ending saga....who needs Tron?

    Yes but.. some of us are still interested in movies that aren't Marvel or Star Wars.

    If this has indeed been halted, then that is disappointing.
    If they never end up making the picture...that will be a shame.
    A LOT of fans were excited for the upcoming 'part 3'.

    I'm a big Tron fan.
    Loved the first film.
    Really loved the second, particularly the visuals.
    Really really bummed if there will be no further adventures on The Grid.
    It is bad enough Disney killed off the animated series......but to pull the plug on 'Tron 3'...?
    Dang it!

    I heard talk that the reason it was cancelled was because of 'Tomorrowland's' perceived 'poor box office performance'...but that may well be just fan talk.
    I really hope that is not the case, as that would indeed be a real shame.

    I enjoyed, but didn't get 'drooly' over both of the Tron films. This news is too bad though. The first film was groundbreaking for sure and the second was visually amazing. I would have seen a third and the story could have went on...I do agree with the idea that pre-acquisition of other IP's that this wouldn't have happened.
    If somehow the Marvel uni starts collapsing, I could see this coming back. No idea remains dead forever and the company may revisit this. You never know.

    Tomorrowland was the nail in the coffin.

    And it should not have been !

    Disney is making a mistake here.

    Some of us actually like films that are unique and 'different'.
    Enough with the super-hero heavy flicks. It's getting old.
    Obviously not with the standard movie-going public, but at some point i hope Disney reconsiders re-rezzing further 'Tron' adventures....in SOME form at least.

    Yep, Tomorrowland didn't do Sci-Fi at Disney any favors.

    Remember, there was a long wait for a sequel after the first one ;)

    Reads half of thread till he realizes it's two years old. :facepalm:

    Is Tron 3 going to cross into the Chevrolet design mainframes? They must hunt down the rouge VW diesel program that is trying to spread his sabotage to other manufacturers.

    I try not to read movie plots and spoilers.
