I was a big TRON fan, and I saw the original IN PERSON IN THE THEATER as a teenager. It actually influenced my life and career choices more than I ever imagined it would.
But I totally skipped the Tron 2.0 game. I didn't like the look, didn't like the initial reviews, and to this day, haven't yet played it or inquired about the story line. How wierd...
Thank god for the Flynn Lives ARG. It's hardly mentioned at all on this forum, but got me PLENTY excited about T:L. The SWAG from that ARG turned me into a bona fide Tron memorabilia collector and now I have quite a collection. Quite a collection, thanks to my wife supporting and encouraging me wayyy more than she should.
I loved the Tron Uprising series. I thought it was very well made, and very entertaining. I still maintain my "conspiracy theory" that the whole series was "bought and paid for" well before the movie came out, and although there may have been some "post movie work" done, I think the series was already nearly completely "in the can" by Dec 2010. All 18 episodes. After that, money available to spend on marketing (and post-production) after the movie came out dried up to nearly nothing. That's my conspiracy theory.
Today, here's where I think "the programs have gone"...
T:L didn't meet Disney expectations at 176m in revenue domestically. I truly believe that. The ramifications are "far and wide". Since it didn't meet expectations, I believe Disney put a hard halt on "Tron Spending". The Uprising series was never given a fair shake, marketed on Disney
by targeting at 10-12 year old boys. Incorrect channel, incorrect target audience, with a "schedule" that jumped around EXACTLY LIKE execs were looking for a place to air it to get the best possible audience without spending ANY MORE MONEY on marketing. Thus, Tron Uprising "failed" to produce a proven audience for continuing to invest in Tron 3 right away.
This is pretty easy to see when Alice in Wonderland came out BEFORE Tron Legacy, but since then, Disney has produced Snow White Huntsman, Oz AND Maleficent and already has a sequel to Snow White in the works. Totally disregarding the Disney owned Marvel movies juggernaut (and Pirates), Disney has publicly been pushing Star Wars 7 over anything. Tron 3's latest news has been what... a rewrite story from Joseph K that is nearly 3 years old now? Seriously? (I am purposely not including any of Bruce B's comments. His heart and head are in the PERFECT PLACE for anyone to continue working with Tron)
I think Steve L, Joseph K, Adam H, Edward K, Charlie B, and all the actors (especially the big Bruce B) would love to continue working on Tron media and especially Tron 3/ Tron Uprising Season 2. But they want (and need) to be paid, they aren't the ones that would be "paying". People like Sean B. and Jeffrey S. and the Disney "Execs" are in a position to "pay" to have Tron continue, but their priorities aren't Tron (yet...). And...
Here we are. "True believers" waiting on more Tron media to be produced. Series, Movies, Games, whatever... Fans can only do so much. Without Disney willing to put MONEY behind an effort, Tron isn't going anywhere.
And the programs (fans) remain in storage, waiting to be run/reactivated once again...where to buy abortion pills online order abortion pill buy abortion pills online
