Disney on Thursday unveiled the first still from Tron: Ares, the third film in the Tron sci-fi franchise, which went into production in Vancouver in January. Check out the pic below.

Starring Jared Leto, the film 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. It’s directed by Joachim Rønning, who helmed both Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Maleficent: Mistress of Evil for Disney following his breakout with 2012’s Kon-Tiki, with Greta Lee, Evan Peters, Hasan Minhaj, Jodie Turner-Smith, Arturo Castro, Cameron Monaghan, and Gillian Anderson rounding out the cast.

Jesse Wigutow and Jack Thorne wrote the script, with Sean Bailey, Jeffrey Silver, Justin Springer, Leto, Emma Ludbrook and Steven Lisberger producing alongside executive producer Russell Allen. The film is slated for release in 2025.

The Tron franchise launched with the seiminal 1982 title of the same name starring Jeff Bridges as video game creator Kevin Flynn, which was lauded for its visual effects and developed a cult classic following after a tough go in its theatrical run. Following that up was the 2010 sequel Tron: Legacy introducing Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde to the cast, which netted a little over $400M upon its debut during the holiday season.

In a statement accompanying the release of the first look Tron still, Rønning said, “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.”
