The first “TRON” was released in 1982, followed by “TRON: Legacy” in 2010. News first circulated in 2017 that Jared Leto would star in a “TRON” reboot. It has since been described as a sequel instead of a reboot, with development moving forward in 2020.

TRON Lightcycle / Run, a copy of TRON Lightcycle Power Run in Shanghai Disneyland, will open at Magic Kingdom on April 4, 2023.

Jared Leto will also appear in the new “Haunted Mansion” film.
