Tron was all about the computers and I'm not comfortable with what happened in Tron Legacy... especially towards the ending.
That ending opened up a can of worms that needs to be contained FAST in order for Tron 3 to work effectively. Thank the Users they have a new writing team without the LOST boys.
I'm... not even sure how they'll reconcile that ending for a new film, without doing what seems a lot of retconning. Which they already seem to be working on. They blow up a couple characters... what fancy resurrection scene would we have to have to bring them back? (plus as many others have said before-- it would kind of ruin the emotional impact of the end of the movie, wouldn't it?) As much as I'd like to see what happened in my Afterward
fic-bit, that too kills the emotional impact AND it makes the whole thing anticlimactic-- he was trapped in there all that time for no reason?
Then you have the hero you technically didn't kill but probably should because there isn't movie time enough to deal with the emotional fallout of everything he went through, and to ignore it and have him pop up and be all okay would be so shallow it's not even funny. Plus you're gonna have to de-age his actor big-time unless you're going to come up with a good reason for him to keep the helmet.
Then you have the character whose specialness still needs to be established (and in a non-hokey way), who has spent the equivalent of thousands of years in a place where she never ages or gets sick and the worst thing one individual can do to another is smash them to smithereens and half the crime we know doesn't exist, and then you throw her in a world where her body's about to start falling apart and people contract diseases that turn them into walking wastelands and drug cartels feed people into wood chippers and people beat the crap out of their SOs and kids and animals and there are dictators that make Clu look like your cookie-baking auntie, and expect her NOT to go absolutely nuts? (Think The Fifth Element
only far, far worse.)
I dunno. Y'all are well aware that I think that the further Disney takes this franchise, the stranger it gets and the further away from the first film, so... I don't think they left much space at the end of T:L
for a plausible sequel, and now they're going to try it... But how many times can I really beat that dead horse? You've all heard me say it so many times you can probably quote me in your sleep, so, yeah.
