 After a 28-year gap between the first two Tron movies, fans eagerly anticipated news of a third installment. However, Tron: Ares faced setbacks, including Disney initially canceling plans for the sequel in 2015. The project was later revived, with Garth Davis initially attached as the director before being replaced by Joachim Rønning. Deadline highlighted that Tron: Ares emerged from development limbo, and production is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2023.

Considering the post-production process and the film’s scale, it is likely that Tron: Ares will wrap up post-production by the end of 2024. Although Disney has yet to confirm an official release date, sources suggest that December 19, 2025, is the expected release date for the film, aligning with the previous release pattern of Tron: Legacy.

Variety states that the cast of Tron: Ares features exciting additions, including Jared Leto and Evan Peters. Jared Leto, known for his diverse roles, takes on the titular lead role of Ares in the film.

Joining Leto in the cast is Evan Peters, who has gained recognition for his roles in both film and television.
