Tron 3 Is Still Happening with Jared Leto

Tron 3 Is Still Happening with Jared Leto
Will fans ever get to see Tron 3? Jared Leto sure thinks so, but it won't happen right away. In fact, we probably won't see this sci-fi sequel until at least 2020, as Disney already has their release calendar filled to the end of the decade with Marvel and Star Wars movies, but that doesn't mean the mouse house has given up on the Tron franchise yet.

The original Tron was released in 1982, and was meant to be one of Disney's many attempts at cashing in on Star Wars fever. The franchise wasn't resurrected again until Tron: Legacy in 2010, 28 years after the first movie. It wasn't the hit Disney was hoping for, and it happened before they got their hands on the Star Wars saga. But when that happened, Star Wars became Disney's main sci-fi focus.

That is shifting ever-so-slightly, with news of Tron 3 emerging many times over the past seven years.

And, as an increasing number of women come forward with stories of sexual assault and misconduct by Harvey Weinstein and other males in the industry, Rosenthal isn’t alone in her anger.

“I was surprised and not as surprised,” Elizabeth Olsen, who’s volunteered at the Rape Treatment Center, told Variety, “because I’m around women and children who’ve been sexually assaulted every week. I think we have a really insane epidemic, and it’s amazing to hear women who feel comfortable or safe enough to speak out.” She hopes it
