Tron 3 is Set to Start Filming for Disney After the Holidays

Tron: Ares is scheduled to kick off production in Vancouver, BC, immediately after the holiday season. The upcoming film is set to star Jared Leto in the lead role, though specific details about his character remain undisclosed. Director Joachim Rønning has assembled a cast that includes Evan Peters, Greta Lee, Jodie Turner-Smith, and Cameron Monaghan.

Monaghan, known for his motion capture work in the Star Wars: Jedi video game series may be taking on a “virtual” character within the film’s digital realm. The participation of Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, and Olivia Wilde in reprising their roles from earlier installments of the series remains a mystery. The news of the movie’s production commencement is a positive development, especially considering Rønning’s earlier revelation in August, where he disclosed the departure of over 150 employees from the project.

“Today was supposed to be our first day of principal photography on TRON: ARES (a movie subsequently about AI and what it means, and takes, to be human). Instead, we are shut down with over a hundred and fifty people laid off. It’s indefinite, which makes it exponentially harder for everyone.”

Released in 1982, “Tron” is a groundbreaking science fiction film directed by Steven Lisberger. The story revolves around Kevin Flynn (played by Jeff Bridges), a computer programmer who is transported into the digital world inside a computer. Inside this digital realm, programs resemble their creators, and Flynn finds himself in a struggle against the oppressive Master Control Program.

With the help of Tron (Bruce Boxleitner), a security program, and Yori (Cindy Morgan), Flynn navigates through the digital landscape to stop the Master Control Program’s reign. “Tron” was a pioneer in its use of computer-generated imagery (CGI) and showcased a unique visual style that left a lasting impact on the science fiction genre.

It received a long-awaited sequel to the original film, directed by Joseph Kosinski. Tron Legacy 2010 returned to the grid in search of Kevin Flynn who became trapped in his creation by his digital counterpart CLU. Flynn’s son Sam leads a solo mission to find his father and discovers a cyber universe that has exponentially evolved since his father’s last visit, encountering new challenges. The film explores themes of artificial intelligence, identity, and the consequences of unchecked power.

Both films were met with mixed critical reviews, but have become a cult-fan favorite over the past three decades. Despite mixed critical reception, “Tron: Legacy” performed well at the box office, grossing over $400 million worldwide. The film’s success paved the way for Tron Ares and other potential spinoffs.
