Disney World’s Tomorrowland Speedway Is Getting Replaced With An Awesome New Attraction

In Disney World news, a new attraction is coming! Disney World will receive its own Lightcycle Power Run attraction, which will replace the Tomorrowland Speedway.

The Tomorrowland Speedway, originally known as the Grand Prix Raceway, has been part of Disney World since the park opened in 1971, but after months of rumors, it’s been confirmed by WDW News Today that it will soon be leaving the park to be replaced by the Lightcycle Power Run. Disney is set to make the official announcement this Saturday, July 15, at its D23 convention. Disney World visitors can continue to enjoy the Tomorrowland Speedway for the rest of 2017, but construction on the Tron attraction will likely begin in 2018. As for opening date, that is quite unknown at the moment.

After the film Tron: Legacy‘s release, the movie was set for a third Tron movie, and was greenlit in March 2015. Two months later, however, Disney decided to cancel the project, and  in February 2017, director Joseph Kosinski described it as being in “cryogenic freeze.” However, shortly after Kosinski made that comment, it was reported that Disney was exploring making a Tron reboot, which would star Jared Leto as a character named Ares, who was originally from the Tron: Ascension script.
