Tron 3 was announced a while ago and many fans had been anticipating another sequel in the franchise, but Disney recently revealed that it would not be going forward with the project.
However, as they have been known to do in the past, fans of the franchise have gotten together to show their support in the form of signing a petition. Word got out on Friday that the studio would not be going through with the sequel after it had continued to delay the decision.
While Disney took a while to reveal its plans with the film, once the news of its cancellation was brought to fans, they wasted no time in starting a petition that they hope will make a difference in Disney’s decision to make the film.
I've never been a fan of online petitions but for Tron 3 I'm truly compelled. Let us will this film back to life! https://t.co/fypKMJhM53

Tron 3 was clearly a fan-favorite film and canceling the upcoming film did not go over well with many of them. More than 10,000 fans have already signed the petition, which asks Disney to revive the film.
The petition can be found at change.org and was started by a fan named Lucas Lowman located in New York City. He set a goal for 15,000 signatures and he is well on his way already with the numbers continuing to grow.

His official statement in the petition when urging fans to sign reads “Tron: Legacy grossed over 400 million dollars and helped more fully realize the world created in the original Tron. It’s a shame that Disney has elected not to move forward with a third Tron film as the universe is ripe to be explored. Sign this petition so that we may show Disney that The Grid is too great to never be shown again and to prove that Flynn lives.”
If Tron 3 simply has the studio on the fence, then there is a good chance that voicing your opinion in the form of a petition could work and it just might work for the fans. However, if the reason is about not wanting to spend the money perhaps due to the recent disappointment of Tomorrowland, then the fans may be out of luck.
