** The "reboot" idea has met with heavy skepticism on Website/{{Tumblr}'s Tron fandom, both due to Koskinski's involvement [[note]] His original ideas were to center the third film on the "real" world, deal with an invasion of hostile AI trying to wipe out humans, and be DarkerAndEdgier than ''Legacy,'' which was already plenty dark and paranoid about technology like his film Film/Oblivion2013. Elements of the fanbase, particularly those who liked Lisberger's vision of AI being no better or worse than humans, were not impressed. [[/note]] and the potential casting of Jared Leto.

** Flynn's Jedi-like robes, demeanor, and decision to self-exile while his corrupt apprentice lays waste to everything in range and his allies are left to struggle alone. [[Film/TheForceAwakens Luke Skywalker was apparently taking notes.]] Alan and Lora apparently turned out a little better than Han and Leia, though.

Added DiffLines:

* InternetBackdraft: The third film's cancellation was met with ''huge'' backlash from fans and the media, citing it as a major DisproportionateRetribution against the failure of ''Tomorrowland'' and causing the latter franchise to have a large hatedom in retaliation. Pensions for it to be put back into development reached over 30,000 signatures in a week, and every post from the official Facebook page is often flooded with posts from angry fans asking for a third film.
**''TRON [=RUN/R=]'' was also met with backlash, both because ItsShortSoItSucks and because it is developed by Sanzaru Games, which is already quite controversial for ''VideoGame/SlyCooperThievesInTime'', which has a DownerEnding {{Cliffhanger}} that they are not resolving. This united fans of both franchises to call out on the lack of sequels.

** JerkAssWoobie: CLU, ''dear god'' CLU. Yes, he became a dictator of the Grid, yes [[spoiler: wiped out the [=ISOs=]]], and yes [[spoiler: he reconfigured Tron's programming to become Rizler]], but when you ''really'' think about it, the guy ''was following the programming Kevin instilled in him''. Since Kevin instilled the idea of [[spoiler: "creating the perfect system"]], Clu simply thought he was following that idea. Obviously that doesn't ''excuse'' his actions, but when you get down to it, he was just doing what he was programmed to do. [[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey Makes you think Clu is more of HAL 9000]]...

to:

%%* EvenBetterSequel* EvenBetterSequel: ''Tron'' is considered an impressive film despite the cheesy visuals, which could be forgiven considering the [[UsefulNotes/TheEighties year]] it was made. ''Tron: Legacy''? Better visuals, DarkerAndEdgier storyline, and '''''Music/DaftPunk''''' for music? Well you got yourself an ''impressive'' sequel.



%%* IronWoobie: Quorra.
* JustHereforGodzilla: The soundtrack and cameo appearance of Music/DaftPunk brought music fans who otherwise wouldn't have seen it.

* CriticalDissonance: While the film wasn't savaged by critics, it was generally viewed as being SoOkayItsAverage by said critics. Audiences, however, had a [[SoCoolItsAwesome different reaction]], particularly [[Blog/ToplessRobot Rob Bricken]].

** In ''WesternAnimation/TronUprising'', [[spoiler:[[BigGood Tron]]]] says [[spoiler:he'd]] rather die than be the puppet of a tyrant. At the time, it was awesome, if terrifying given [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge the context]]. Come Legacy, and [[spoiler:he]] has become [[spoiler:[[TheDragon Rinzler]].]]

Come Legacy, and [[spoiler:he]] has become [[spoiler:[[TheDragon Rinzler]].]]]] It goes back even farther, to the first film; [[spoiler: Remember Sark's taunt "You should have joined me! We'd have made a great team!" - yeah, Rinzler serves the same position for Clu that Sark did for Master Control]].
** The ''entire first film'' can fall into this; just watch it after you've seen Legacy, realizing the PowerTrio will fall apart with Alan left to soldier on alone (in ''either'' timeline), that the cheerful smartass of a protagonist will end up a broken ruin in the Outlands with his proverbial tail tucked between his legs, the DorkKnight title character will become so twisted by the point ''WesternAnimation/TronUprising'' that he can barely spit out that he considers his apprentice a friend [[spoiler: to say nothing of his fate as "Rinzler"]], and that the survival odds on [[SequelNonEntity Yori]] are ''very'' dim.

*** Not only that. Later in the movie, Quorra and the Black Guards use identical tools as swords and staffs. He was right!
