Tron: Legacy is a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world that’s unlike anything ever captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), the tech-savvy 27-year-old son of Kevin Flynn (Jeff Bridges), looks into his father’s disappearance and finds himself pulled into the same world of fierce programs and gladiatorial games where his father has been living for 25 years. Along with Kevin’s loyal confidant (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.

The Tron franchise has been back in the news recently as it appears that rumors of its demise might be greatly exaggerated. It now appears that the revitalization of the brand may result in new theme park attractions as well.

James Gunn Shoots Down Tron 3 Rumor, Jokingly Blasts Holes Through A Bunch Of Rumored Projects
Disney's Tron was something of a cult hit back in its day, which meant decades would pass before a sequel would ever come to be. However, that movie's audience failed to be big enough to keep the franchise alive. While there were originally plans for a third film, Disney eventually cancelled them, putting the franchise on the shelf once again.

How Tron 3 Fans Are Trying To Rescue Disney's Cancelled Sequel
When it was announced a few weeks back that Tron Legacy stars, Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund would be reprising their roles in an upcoming sequel to that 2010 franchise revival, it was rather surprising. Yet, for the film’s co-star, Wilde, the delays that mired this film may have proven fortuitous when it came to finding a good story. In a recent interview, the actress discusses what’s in store for her character, Quorra.

Tron 3 Will Explore What Happens When Olivia Wilde Enters The Real World
It was a surprising turn of events earlier this month when it was revealed that the Walt Disney Company is actively working towards making a Tron 3. And while the movie does not yet have a firm release date announced by the studio, it seems that the production may have a name. Are you ready for Tron: Ascension?
It's been quite a long time since we last heard anything about Tron 3, the last piece of news dating back to 2012, but the project may be further along than we have been led to believe. That's because new reports are circulating saying that the sci-fi sequel is looking to start production this fall.
If you are new to our Parental Guidance column, here's the idea behind it: I concocted a plan to make my 15 year old daughter, Allie, watch movies with me.

Parental Guidance Suggests You're In Trouble, Program!
I hope you have your nostalgia glasses on, or at least some form of eyewear that allows you to be completely comfortable with shoddy video quality. The above video, which has been kicking it on the Internet for some time, combines two things that we don’t often get to see together these days: one of the most respected newsmen on the planet and a film that shattered the mold for computer graphics in cinema.

Walter Cronkite Enters The Tron-Verse In This 1982 Clip
Work on a sequel to Tron: Legacy is underway. We’ve known it was coming for awhile, but today Disney announced that they’ve hired David DiGilio to work on the script.

Tron 3 Gets A Writer, Franchise Future May Depend On Your Kids
Last year, while everyone was talking about Tron: Legacy, nearly ever blog post you read on any site but this one dismissed the original, 1982 Tron as a box office flop. Repeat something long enough and perception becomes reality, even if it's just not.
Another video from the Blu-ray has leaked, and this one may offer clues to the nature of Tron 3’s villain.
The video shows a chat conversation between Edward Dillinger Jr. (played by Cillian Murphy in Tron: Legacy) and his father.
When Tron: Legacy ended it left a lot of things unsolved. Sam left the computer world with Quorra and rode off into the sunset, presumably to take over Encom and set things right. Beyond the movie, the whole “Flynn Lives” viral campaign built up around the movie never really got a resolution either.
