Disney's Tron 3 in initial stage of development

MUMBAI:Despite average collections made by Tron:Legacy last year in December, Disney, which controls the franchise, has decided to proceed with the third installment of the series.

Tron: Legacy‘s last year‘s box office collection did not live up to the expectation of Disney. The film that made $400mn had audience wondering whether they would get to see more of the series. But the studio has decided to keep it going and has already hired David DiGilio, who earlier wrote the script for Disney‘s Eight Below in 2006. DiGilio is known for the creation of Television series ‘Traveler‘. 

Although Tron:Legacy faced a lot of criticism for the story and script, writers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis were probables to write the script for Tron 3, but they are currently busy working on ABC fairytale series. Due to which, DiGilio will be taking over the project. Although what is still unclear is whether director Joseph Kosinski will call the shots again.

Even though the marketing costs last year went over the board, it is believed that the R&D costs will be smaller for Tron 3. Also, executives at Disney are hoping that the animated series coming to Disney XD called ‘Tron: Uprising‘ does well.

Although the process is still in the scripting stage, the ultimate decision of whether the third part will be made or not will depend on the success of ‘Tron: Uprising‘ because it is very important for Disney to know whether the brand still connects with the fan base or not.
