They are calling Tron: Legacy a huge success in the first sentence means they are looking past a general dollar amount and more on how Legacy affected pop culture(in 2011 everyone was attempting a Tron-look).
Also, the fact that production on Uprising started before the release of Legacy means Disney really believes in this franchise most likely due to the lasting appeal and fan base. They have the literal makings of something that could be their "Star Wars", in a sense.
I have really good feelings for the future of Tron and I'm glad I get to see it come about.
You're right, TRON definately influenced pop-culture in a huge way.. Heck, people are still trying to pull off the TRON look today... Have you seen the concepts for the new "Modern" Test Track? It's undeniably The Grid!
