TRON 3 is Happening! Thoughts on the Latest News.

What fans can expect from TRON 3 is a different story direction than what’s implied from the last film, and that’s okay given the time that’s elapsed since that release.

Tron Legacy IMAX PosterWhatever the reasons were for delaying the making of Tron 3, I’m simply glad it’s happening! News has been dropping fast and furious concerning what’s been changed since Joseph Kosinski’s original plans back in 2015.

Although we’re not getting the continuation with what he fashioned after Tron Legacy, the concept is still there. According to JustJared.com, the film is due to begin shooting in Vancouver come August, and on Variety.com, Jodie Turner-Smith is the latest star announced to appear in this film. She will be joining Jared Leto, Evan Peters and Greta Lee.

Joachim Rønning (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales) is the director this time round. He’s a very competant director to handle this property after having more than a few films made for Disney under his belt. And the talents tapped to pen this instalment add Jesse Wigutow and Jack Thorne to the mix. Series creator Steven Lisberger is no doubt the lead of this writing team.

Star Trek Prodigy Axed. But Season Two Will Beam On Board Somewhere!

Thankfully, fans can get some kind of continuation and closure as the news dropped as post-production has finished for Star Trek Prodigy.

Star Trek Prodigy Streaming on Nickelodeon and Paramount+

Sadly, there won’t be any more Star Trek Prodigy after season two, according to Variety. That also includes removal of the series, which can draw the ire of those faithful. Fortunately, the good news is that it’s nearly done post-production, and is allowed to be broadcast.

In the original article, Joe Otterman wrote, “According to an individual with knowledge of the removals, the decision was data-driven, though Paramount did not share any specific data that highlighted why these shows are being cancelled and removed. It is the latest example, however, of streamers removing content from their platforms. Warner Bros. Discovery led the charge on such removals at Max under the leadership of David Zaslav, while other platforms like Disney+ and Hulu have recently followed suit.”

While Lower Decks remain, even that series my be living on borrowed time.

Fans can blame the new board of directors for taking away what I feel is the best animated entry for the Star Trek franchise. In what’s expected for season two is an answer to what happened to Captain Chakotay and to see Gwyn on a solo outing. A civil war is brewing in her home world, and she wants to stop it. I believe by mid-season’s end of that arc, she’ll reunite with her friends.

Prodigy is creatively a lot more imaginative. Here, non humanoid alien species are everywhere! Because they’re rarely featured on television save for Orville, I’ve often ignored some shows and avidly followed others because of how diverse the gene pool is in a galactic level. In Prodigy, the there’s a lot more variety being presented and I love it.

Also, the misfit formula worked. It’s less like Farscape or Red Dwarf. With Starfleet looking over the crew’s shoulder, so to speak, they have to eventually learn how to conform. Whether showrunners and creators Kevin & Dan Hageman have plans for an eventual finale, all fans can do is hope when Star Trek Prodigy finds a new home and gets a proper finale it deserves.
