Do you care that Tron himself says a third movie is only a matter of time?

A sequel to TRON: LEGACY has been rumored off and on since before the months before the movie even came out, and today brings further fuel for the fire with the following comment from actor Bruce Boxleitner (Alan Bradley/Tron):

“It’s not an if, it’s a when.  I think Alan Bradley is a very important character, as well as Tron certainly. With one you get the other, I’m very excited about [Tron 3's] prospects.”

I'm sure Disney would like to take its time developing a follow-up, and they've illustrated as much by attempting to muzzle Boxleitner in the past for speaking about sequels before they were ready for a proper announcement.  But Boxleitner has expressed his belief that "speaking out of line may also be helping the film’s chances," and it was his initial reveal that a TRON: LEGACY sequel was in the works that reportedly led Disney's Head of Production to quip “I guess we’ll have to make this now."  2014 is the rumored release year should a sequel actually come to pass, and last we heard (albeit back in March) was that the script was still being written.  

But what do you think the whole thing? Would you still be up for more TRON four years after the last sequel (and thirty two years after the original movie)?

The original is a classic bit of eighties cinema - the plot, the effects - unmistakably of that decade and really enjoyable for it. The recent sequel was good stuff, and made decent use of 3D technology too. I'd definitely give another sequel a chance, and as a fan of Babylon 5 I'm not one to complain about Bruce Boxleitner showing up more often either. Assume they're not waiting the best part of 30 years to make the next film, then?

Yes I'd be interested in another one! It would be interesting to see clue get into the real world.

Ugh...

I fell asleep to the first Tron movie when I was 10; so it doesn't hold that much nostalgia to me than others. I rewatched it as an adult and felt insulted by it. And somehow by the grace of Buddha I was made to watch Tron: Legacy, which felt bloated and unnecessary as its predecessor. Now I feel the same towards the (eventual) sequel. Here's hoping I don't have to stomach that nonsense again....

Yes I care, WTH do you think people don't want a sequel?

Who comes up with these titles and pitches for stories on here of late? Some of these articles really come off as blather from people who do not grasp the demographic of the people reading this stuff on Joblo.Tron: Legacy was pretty well received, a person should know that before putting this type of hit-bait online.

TRON....THE LEAD CHARACTER. Make him the lead character since his name is the title of the movie, not Jeff Bridges character. Tron is a bad ass....let him take the movie.

HELL YES!

Tron Legacy was a great start and you know what, I'll say it, it blew the original away. It wasn't a fantastic movie or anything but it had so many top notch elements to it that it made up for it's faults and I can't wait to see another one, especially with the ending of the last one. Bring back Daft Punk!!!!

I really liked Legacy. I thought the visuals and the music were absolutely phenomenal. Sure the action scenes could have been more exciting but with the beauty on the screen I really didn't care all that much. The grand scheme also could have been more logical and menacing but for what it was, it was still pretty good and I thought it was one of the most underrated movies of 2010;
Now I just hope they'll bring back Cillian Murphy in a bigger role for the third movie.

I think they should model the TRON fanchise after the Hobbit/Lord of the Rings franchise.

The should treat the original 80s film, like the Hobbit, as an introductory childrens tale.

Treat TR2N, since it was mostly expositiony, as Fellosship of the Ring which was also mostly expositiony.

With that in mind, they could easily make two more TRON films.

I care

The TRON movies are cheesy fun, and the second one was a visual treat.
