So, Kingdom Hearts 3 is supposed to be coming out probably around 2016 or 2017, and we're going to get some new footage on Sunday and new footage in November.
What are your thoughts? What new worlds do you want to see? What worlds do you want to see return? What worlds do you NOT want to see or return from the previous games?
I'm personally hoping for a world based on Atlantis: The Lost Empire or Treasure Planet (Which are some of the better Disney movies, IMO). I really hope they do some unexpected ones, like how Tron wasn't expected in Kingdom Hearts 2, or how Nightmare Before Christmas wasn't expected in Kingdom Hearts 1. So if we get something like Robin Hood, Great Mouse Detective, Black Cauldron (Which I feel is really likely) or The Rescuers, I'd be happy with that. As for other ones, I really want Jungle Book (Because apparently, there was supposed to be a Jungle Book world in Birth By Sleep, but it got cut out for some unknown reason.) and Princess and The Frog (For the sole reason of having Doctor Facilier around. Seriously, the dude is my favorite Disney Villain and it'd be a shame not to have him around)
I really, REALLY do not want Atlantica back, Everything in Atlantica was pretty much HELL for me in the first two games. Marvel stuff and Star Wars stuff, I feel is best left for Kingdom Hearts 4, if there is going to be one. Maybe some kind of DLC, because from what I heard, this game is bringing some closure to the ongoing plotline of the games. So, it's kind of too late to insert a universe as big and complicated as Marvel or Star Wars into Kingdom Hearts. It's just a worry that it might overshadow the rest of what's going on. Also, I have the feeling they're not bringing back Halloweentown. I love Nightmare Before Christmas, but I don't think there was a whole lot that they could've done with it.
As for stuff I know we're getting back, in the E3 footage, the level that gets the most focus is Mount Olympus from Hercules, so we're getting Hercules back (I honestly don't mind - The Colosseum in both games was amazingly fun in my opinion). Gilbert Gottfried confirmed that he was done recording voice work for Kingdom Hearts 3, which probably means we're getting Agrabah back (I really hope it's not the city again - If they do something with Aladdin 3 or something with the animated series, I'll be happy).
As for stuff I personally want back: I really want the Pride Lands back, if only because I really want them to do something with Lion King 2 (Which is one of the exceptions to the shitty direct-to-video sequel rule, along with the Aladdin sequels). I really want them to do something with Lilo and Stitch again, if only because I really love Lilo and Stitch. I want another Beauty and The Beast world, mostly because I really want Gaston in Kingdom Hearts to make up for how he ended up not appearing in the Beauty and The Beast world in Kingdom Hearts 2. I honestly wouldn't mind seeing Neverland or Land Of The Dragons (Mulan's world) back, because both were really fun worlds in their respective games.
...Holy shit, I typed a LOT. I guess I have a lot of thoughts on this. Anyway, let me know what your guys' thoughts are.
