A bunch of Twitter insiders are reporting that a Kingdom Hearts series is in the works for Disney+.

Been tagged in Jeremy's post (which is true), so here’s what I know:

—Kingdom Hearts will be a Disney+ series, not a movie.
—It’s animated (CG)
—Disney VO actors are expected to reprise their roles (Jim Cummings, Bill Farmer, Tony Anselmo)

There is a Kingdom Hearts series in the works at Disney+. Disney originally wanted to make it but that didn't work out, so Square Enix was asked to create a pilot using Unreal Engine. This series is most likely not live-action, but CG animated. They're currently casting.

Well, I’m glad SE is the one making it and not Disney. I mean, they were so restrictive with KH3 that they would somehow find a way to retroactively screw up KH1. I miss when the Disney characters were more involved with the plot...

Tbh I was never a gamer, but this could certainly pique my interest!

What exactly was wrong with KH3? I personally loved it. :?

I enjoyed KH3, too, for what it was. It was definitely a beautiful game and I loved how massive the worlds were. I just miss when the Disney villains and other characters (the princesses of heart, Beast, Merlin, etc.) had involvement in the main plot of the game. Maleficent just kind of lurked in the background doing nothing of consequence. Mickey at least was a Keyblade Master. Probably the highlight Disney character moment was Donald casting Zettaflare. :!:

There are not too many original animated series projects for Disney+ (that is, compared to the live-action ones). If there’s one more, that’s nice. If it’s Kingdom Hearts related, it’s even better! :D

I really hope that all the rumors that say that Angelina Jolie will reprise her role as Maleficent and Will Smith as Genie, are true!!!

:up: :up:

I really hope that isn’t the case. I assumed this was just a TV series adaptation of the games. The games included the original films, not the remakes… Much as I like Jolie as Maleficent and Will Smith as Genie in the live-action remakes (I don’t consider Maleficent a remake exactly, but an alternate version of the story like Wicked is to TWoO), I really wouldn’t want this mixing between the original characters and the live-action offshoots….

I'm in the same boat here. To the extent possible, I hope they'll get the same voice cast as the games.. Part of the charm of the KH games is that they gather characters and universes of Disney Classics taken from different eras of Disney history (from Snow White/first Mickey's shorts, to Big Hero 6), and found a way to connect them within a Final Fantasy context (sort of.) Imo, this charm is guaranteed to be at least partly lost if we assimilate characters with the remakes made during the past 10 years. Hope they'll preverse the authenticity of the originals :up:

Yeah, the Disney-FF crossover aspect is definitely the reason the series was so wonderful to me when the first game released all those years ago. Of course, I almost wonder if Square Enix might excise the Final Fantasy characters from the story in this adaptation of the story, considering they've unfortunately pushed those characters out of the series post-KH2 and I have no idea why. :( The series isn't quite the same without them. I love both Disney and Final Fantasy, so...

No I couldn't stand to see those princesses lose their hearts again and why bother when the game story isn't finished. Excuss me while what while I try to keep whatever blood I have left from boiling away.
