Joseph Kosinski reiterated that Disney’s acquisition of Marvel and “Star Wars” was the reason for the cancellation of the “TRON: Legacy” sequel. “The film was close to production at the time, and I started storytelling for the film, and I was really excited at the time.” But then the project took a turn for the worse.
