Tron: Ares

Disney Shares First Look at ‘TRON: Ares’

Disney has released the first picture from its upcoming feature TRON: Ares. The photo shows Jared Leto’s character in an ominous-looking suit with red highlights surrounded by red light. The film is expected to arrive in theaters in 2025 and is currently shooting in Vancouver.

Jared Leto stars as Ares in TRON: Ares. He is a computer program that is sent from the digital realm into the real world on a dangerous mission to bring artificial intelligence to humans. Clearly, there is some level of conflict in this. Leto will be joined by actors Greta Lee, Evan Peters, Hasan Minhaj, Jodie Turner-Smith, Arturo Castro, Cameron Monaghan, and Gillian Anderson.

Here is the official description:

TRON: Ares follows a highly sophisticated Program, Ares, who is sent from the digital world into the real world on a dangerous mission, marking humankind’s first encounter with A.I. beings.

Tron: Ares was slowed down by the SAG/AFTRA strikes last year. It started filming in January 2024 and is being directed by Joachim Rønning, who also directed Maleficent: Mistress of Evil for Disney. “I’m excited to be part of the Tron franchise and bring this new film to fans around the world. Tron: Ares builds upon the legacy of cutting-edge design, technology and storytelling. Now more than ever, it feels like the right time to return to the Grid,” Rønning said in a statement.

The 2025 release of TRON: Ares continues a story that began in 1982 when the original Tron was released. Starring Jeff Bridges, it was about a video game programmer who entered a digital world he created. In 2010, Tron: Legacy followed his son, played by Garrett Hedlund, doing the same thing. Now, the tables will be turning and a character from the digital world will be entering the real world. It is expected that most of the film will take place in the real world instead of the digital.

Sean Bailey, Jeffrey Silver, Justin Springer, Jared Leto, Emma Ludbrook, and Steven Lisberger are all producers of this film. Russell Allen is an executive producer.
