There has been very little information about the rumored sequel to Tron: Legacyuntil now.

Talking to Collider at the Tribeca Film Festival, Olivia Wilde revealed a key story detail and basically confirmed that the third film in the franchise will start production this fall. 

Wilde said that she has read a script for the movie already, and it spends some time with her character, Quorra, in the real world. From the interview: 

“I love this character of Quorra so much and I’ve built her with Joe Kosinski and we took her such a long way from what was written to what we made. I mean, I fought for her to be this kind of androgynous child and that’s so not what you typically see in these movies, so I’m so grateful that the producers let me play with her and make her this strange little being. And I’m really excited to see what happens to that character when put into the real world. I think it’s an interesting concept. I’m fascinated by all discussions of AI, and especially now today and now with virtual reality becoming something that’s like a personal device, I think it’s the time to tell this story.”


Just to be clear, Disney still hasn't announced that this movie is even happening at all, but it definitely sounds like it is.
