Produced by Jared Leto, Justin Springer, and Emma Ludbrook. The film is supported by Walt Disney Pictures and Paradox Studios, with distribution handled by Walt Disney Animation Studios.
Justin Springer, attending Walt Disney World’s All the Disney Thrills event, expressed that he believes “the right time” has come for Tron 3, after discussing the project with Comicbook.com. Springer said, “Yeah, I’m a producer on whatever the upcoming film becomes, and hopefully we’ll get to make it one day soon, but we’re still in development on it. And there’s not much that I can say about that just because we want to get everything in order and we want to make sure we have a movie that feels like it meets the ambition of the things that have come before it. So I would love to do it. And I think now the ideas that we’ve explored in Tron and where you would imagine those ideas evolving are more relevant than they’ve ever been. So it feels like the right time. And there’s a giant ride here now, and there’s one in Shanghai, but we have to get it right. We have to get the story right, and we have to get the team right. And so there’s still stuff to do before we have much to say about the movie.”
