Sometimes petitions work, and sometimes they don’t. But when a multi-billion dollar company like Disney makes the hard and fast decision to cancel a movie like Tron 3, will fans’ voices matter? That’s the hope behind a new petition on change.org, which has fans asking Disney to reconsider their plans for not continuing the franchise into the future.

It was widely reported this past Friday that Disney had pulled the plug on Tron 3, though a fall start date appeared to be planned with Tron: Legacy stars Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde set to return. There was even talk that Suicide Squad star Jared Leto would be joining the sequel, but he was never approached. Disney had never officially green lit the sequel. But news of its cancelation brought fans together swiftly, with over 12,000 signatures and counting, crying out for the movie to be revived. Tron super fan Lucas Lowman launched the Tron 3 petition, stating:

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.
