While Tron 3 may or may not be happening, there's another sequel that Tron himself might be invited to appear in.
In an interview with Coming Soon, Wreck-It Ralph director Rich Moore said that he would love to have Tron (originally played by Bruce Boxleitner) show up in a followup to his massively successful and well-liked animated videogame movie.
In fact, Moore revealed that Tron was initially set to make a cameo in Wreck-It Ralph itself. "I can't specifically remember why that didn't happen," Moore said, adding, "Of course, with a sequel, I'm hoping that we can find a way to see Tron himself in that movie."
Along with Tron, Moore said he'd like to see Nintendo icon Mario in Wreck-It Ralph 2 as well. And while a second chapter in Moore's videogame adventures has yet to be officially announced, the first movie's $375 million haul at the worldwide box office and its nomination for an Oscar for Best Animated Feature all but make another trip to the arcade a lock.
Tron himself might have plenty of time on his hands to make a cameo: Although there is reportedly a script written for Tron 3, with both director Joseph Kosinski and star Garrett Hedlund attached, the project doesn't seem to be moving forward very quickly at this point.
