Disney Could Green Light a New Tron Trilogy

March 2, 2010

Disney has been very tentative up to this point in its support of Tron Legacy. But ever since the Comic-Con audience of last summer loved the footage they were shown the studio has gotten behind the movie's director, Joe Kosinski. Is it possible there could be a new Tron trilogy in the works?

First Showing (via Blue Sky Disney) reports that there could, in fact, be a trilogy in the works, which is crazy when you consider the fact that it took Disney almost 30 years just to make a sequel to the first Tron:

On the theatrical front, this could be the beginning of a new trilogy. And I'm not talking about including the original Tron. If all goes according to plan you could see this as the first in a trilogy of films that start with the word Tron and end somewhere else… Legacy is only the beginning. There are preliminary plans to milk this into a franchise of Pirate proportions. And the buzz from it so far is very good.

But will Tron Legacy be worthy of a trilogy? Guess we'll find out this week.

What's more exciting, the prospect of a Tron trilogy or the prospect of an Avatar trilogy? Maybe we should wait for Tron Legacy's trailer before we start comparing it to Avatar. But then again, maybe not.
