Disney racing ahead with 'Tron Legacy' sequel

Posted on

Eight months before Tron Legacy even blasts into theaters, Disney is already preparing its sequel. According to The Hollywood Reporter‘s Heat Vision Blog, Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, the Lost writers who contributed to the upcoming Tron reboot, are beginning to work on its followup — and potentially a third film. That’s chutzpah. Especially if you consider that this December’s film is no sure thing. The trailer looks relatively cool, but more so to those who were Atari-playing kids when the Jeff Bridges-starring original came out in 1982. Does Tron even register with younger viewers who Disney will need to drive ticket sales? What if Legacy turns out to be Speed Racer at the box-office?
