Tron: Legacy is not a good narrative. It’s a great music video thanks to Daft Punk’s stellar score and Joseph Kosinski’s distinct visual style, but it’s a charmless bore that squanders some great ideas. I was honestly surprised that Tron 3 was still underway.
According to THR, Tron 3 has been put in the recycle bin. I will admit some disappointment at this news simply because I had hoped Tron 3 would fix a lot of its predecessor’s problems, like actually featuring the titular character as more than a stupid tease.I also had hoped the third film would embrace the original’s weirdness more than the sleek safety of Tron: Legacy did.
Oh well. Disney still has the two biggest nerd IPs of all time under their wing. I weep not for them.
