A sequel was to have started production in late 2015, with Garrett Hedlund returning to play Sam Flynn, Olivia Wilde returning to play Quorra, and Joseph Kosinski back in the director's chair. However, it was back-burnered the week after fellow Disney Sci-Fi film ''Film/{{Tomorrowland}}'' opened with a lukewarm response. On March 8, 2017, the possibility of reviving the sequel - possibly as a SoftReboot - was announced.

-->'''digitalcrypt''': ''As someone who has worked in IT and software for two decades, it is one of my favorite moments in any movie, anywhere. Little collections of ones and zeros think they can go off and misbehave how they want and have their fun...and along comes a human: "I think that's enough chaos for today." :-) (Too bad the job isn't always THAT easy. But the end result is the same, even if it takes a lot more time and work sometimes.) ;-)''

** Electronically altered voices, for some characters more than others -- Sam's initial contacts on the Grid had lots of flanging, while Quorra's and most of the program main cast was barely noticeable. Noticeable or not, every program's voice was processed to some degree.

** ''TRON 3'' was given the go-ahead before ''Legacy'' had even opened; due to the IronicEcho, the front-runner for the next movie's name seems to be ''TRON: Destiny''. As of this moment (Spring 2015), production has started with the temporary use of ''[=TR3N=]'' as the name - neatly calling back to Legacy's original title scheme, though a proper title is in the works- however the rumor mill now points to it being called ''TRON: Ascension''.

* SequelNonEntity: Cindy Morgan's characters, Lora and Yori, are nowhere to be seen. It has been claimed that the actress wasn't even called about the project, which is odd as Morgan - playing Lora - was involved in the viral marketing for the movie, appearing with Bruce Boxleitner at a faux press conference. ExpandedUniverse material gives an explanation for Lora's absence, but the fate of her Program is ''completely'' unknown (though, as it's established that The Grid is A. a new construct from the one in the original film from which only Tron was imported, and B. Clu has been running the show for cycle, any number of reasons are possible for Yori's absence).

%% Incidentally, Daft Punk were DJ programs at the End of Line Club, not MP3 programs. MP3s don't (yet) exist on the Grid.

%% Other than that, enjoy. Or something. Maybe play a nice game of Space Paranoids.
