July 15th is here and with that date comes the promise of a brand new Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer and the reveal of a brand new world. With a series known for dropping us in new and classic Disney movie worlds comes the question, where are we going next? Eleven years currently separate the second series entry from the third and during that time Disney has released an abundance of films that would be perfect for the third Kingdom Hearts game. Let’s explore 3 worlds that would hopefully make the final cut.
As decisive as this world choice may be, nothing fits better. With a story about freeing oneself from the oppression of society and redefining true love, Frozen would provide some interesting story opportunities that could play with Sora’s moral compass. Not only would it allow for some fun story telling but Arandale would look beautiful with the all the new technology under the hood. Snow in a Kingdom Hearts game will never be the same again.
This often forgotten classic could provide the perfect world to merge a large cast of both Disney and Final Fantasy characters. Coming off the release of the twelfth installment remaster, our favorite sky pirates Vaan, Balthier, and Fran would be right at home flying through the skies searching for treasure. With Sora’s new methods of traversal, jumping between mini planets for treasure could be all too fun.
In a world exclusively populated by animals, only our main hero Sora would have to transform to blend in. What a great comedic opportunity that would be. Just as the film’s protagonist had to deal with being taken seriously as a bunny, so must our main hero as he becomes an equally cute and unassuming animal.
As the Kingdom Hearts 3 D23 Livestream grows ever closer we can only imagine what worlds will make the final cut, but at least we’ll get a glimpse of one more.
