Yes, A third film is confirmed to release sometime in the near future but no release date is confirmed till now.

If we could believe that the shooting began in early 2022 then the third part is expected to release in 2023 considering the post production period will take some time. However, these good news don’t please our ears because we have heard the fake news so many times. However, the above poster was real like Disney’s Zombies 3 trailer that was released in Oct 2021.

In 2013, Kosinski said that a TRON sequel is in progress and Justin Springer will be the producer. In 2014 Bruce Boxleitner revealed that the third part of the filming will began this year. Some other channels shared the shooting will took place in Vancouver, Canada in October 2015 under the title Tron: Ascension. However, the movie was reportedly cancelled on 30 May 2015, THR reported. The decision was taken amid failure of Tomorrowland(2015 film) but in Sep 2015, Hedlund shared the news the film isn’t dead totally and can happen in future.

In 2017, Joseph Kosinski announced in a Q&A session that the Tron: Ascension hasn’t cancelled but it was in a cryogenic freeze. Then, we was finally able to heard the words of Disney which states that the network was looking forward to continue the franchise. Jared Leto was assigned to play the character of Ares and in Sep 2020, we saw Jared was getting ripped for Tron 3 production.

This Instagram post and Disney words are the true proof that Tron 3 timeline is well planned but it doesn’t necessarily mean that the shooting will begin soon. But we can definitely expect to see another film until someone come out of nowhere announcing that the franchise is ended. A fun fact: 9 July 2022 is the 40th anniversary of Tron’s first movie that came out in 1982.
