Sequels to beloved Disney franchises Tron, Pirates of the Caribbean and National Treasure are getting closer and closer.
At Disney’s Asia Pacific demo event, Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture President Sean Bailey hinted that the next installments are close. Very close.
On Zoom, Bailey told an audience of reporters when asked about the sequels to the three projects: “I love these games and we would love to introduce them. We are hard at work on all the titles you mentioned and some more.
“Quality must come first, and as a band we start with the quality of the script. We have to have a script in hand that we’re incredibly passionate about, and then we want to find a director that we’re really passionate about.
“We’re getting closer and I think we’ll be hearing more about some of them very, very soon.”
Sequel rumors and speculation have been circulating for ages, but the fact that Bailey chose to name these three titles solidifies the events around them.
At first glance, it seems that Bailey was simply answering a question put to him, and that his answer was somewhat evasive. But it should be noted that Bailey was answering a pre-arranged question written by the Disney team and posed to him by hosts hired by Disney to host the event.
It was not a question from a journalist in the audience. Choice to call Throne, national treasure as well as Pirates of the Caribbean was deliberate and made by Disney, and House of Mouse wouldn’t focus on projects he didn’t want to promote.
Which gives Bailey’s answer a little more weight than the usual “watch that space”.
Third Throne film – after the 1982 original and Tron: Legacy in 2010 – perhaps the most anticipated of the three. Plans for a sequel were in the works even before release. Tron: Legacywith Garrett Hedlund and director Joseph Kosinski originally attached.
Kosinski then said in 2017 that while the sequel was not killed off, it was in “cryofreeze”. Since then, Jared Leto has been attached and back in March said it was coming.
Pirates of the Caribbean the franchise that released its latest installment The dead don’t talk 2017 has been on hiatus for a few years, but last month there were rumors of a controversial role for Johnny Depp, who was set to return for a sixth film.
A leaked call sheet from the test shoot allegedly included Depp’s name, according to the British press, while an insider claimed filming was supposed to start in February.
Depp’s star has been seriously dimmed after years of controversy, partly related to allegations of domestic violence by ex-wife Amber Heard.
It was also revealed during the libel trial that Depp was unprofessional on set during filming. The dead don’t talk forced his manager to fly out of the US to Australia where it was being filmed to keep him informed.
Even if Depp is rebuilding his image after a jury in a libel case against Heard found in his favor, he still has reputation problems due to dr*gs, alcohol and his work ethic, making him a liability to major studios. especially family ones. like Disney.
Hurd filed an appeal this week to either have his conviction overturned or a new trial based on the evidence that was excluded.
case about national treasure the sequel isn’t as loaded with controversy. The first two films were box office hits, and tentative plans for a third film took years to develop. Updates in 2013, 2016, and 2018 put the project on “closure”, waiting for a script that would satisfy Disney.
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer said in 2020 that there will be a third film, as well as a Disney+ spin-off series. At least one of these promises will surely come true.
National Treasure: Edge of History — which does not feature Nicolas Cage — will be streaming on December 14th.
In August, Bruckheimer said that the script for the third film had been sent to Cage.
The writer visited Singapore as a guest of Disney.
