What New Character Universes Could Feature?
Think about it, the last Kingdom Hearts game came out in 2005 and even back then they didn't exploit every great series that Disney had created over the years. But now, they have an additional 10 years of franchises that they can pick from as they prepare for the Kingdom Hearts 3 release in either late 2015 or 2016 (more than likely the latter).
This has lead to sooo much speculation surrounding this game and it's potential evolution into new, unexplored lands. Disney have acquired a lot of rights over the years, most recently the Star Wars franchise is now under their command, and they have a lot of stuff on the way for us! But does that mean that we could see lightsabers in Kingdom Hearts 3? What new companions could Sora have?
Disney Franchises We Want to Make An Appearance!
After taking a look back, I can't believe the amount of franchises they managed to fit into the previous game. Here are just a few of them: The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Beauty and the Beast, Hercules, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Tarzan, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Lion King, Mulan, Winnie the Pooh, Peter Pan, The Nightmare Before Christmas and the list just goes on and on...
But alas, there are almost too many to pick from and unfortunately the one that so many fans wanted to see, has been confirmed as a no-show: Frozen. But with this aside, what kind of characters do you think we could see in this brave new world. Here are some of my suggestions!
The year after the release of Kingdom Hearts 2, Disney acquired Pixar Studios for a whopping $7.4 billion. While this may have a downside in the sense that Disney is forcing the studio to create sequels they don't seem to really care about (come on Pixar is about originality and creating NEW universes, not just rehashing ones that were perfect), on the plus side Pixar characters are almost certainly going to appear in Kingdom Hearts 3!
Just think about what that means in terms of characters!!! Wall-E and EVE, Woody and Buzz, Remy and Linguini, Mike and Sully, Flick and Hopper, Carl and Russell and Marlin and Dory! All of these characters have fascinating a beautiful worlds that I'm sure Square Enix could make so stunning on Xbox One and PS4! Pixar's worlds are almost a guarantee for this game right?? Any character you'd like to see from this world?

Marvel Cinematic Universe!
Can you imagine getting images like this IN-GAME!
It would be incredibly exciting to see the world of Captain America, Thor, Spider-man, X-Men, Hulk and maybe even Guardians of the Galaxy make an appearance! Perhaps they could combine some of the worlds, like if we go out into space we can meet Wall-E and EVE and then Thor too!
I don't think I'm getting ahead of myself with thoughts like this right? They could definitely include these guys with the massive engine they have at their disposal (Kingdom Hearts 3 is using Unreal Engine 4 now!).
Yep, Walt Disney owns The Muppets too and I would personally love to see some of these guys in Kingdom Hearts 3! Can you imagine getting their kind of banter in that game?! I wouldn't want to leave their world if they did it right. I'd just like to see Sam Eagle get frustrated and maybe be guided around the place by Statler and Waldorf! God, that'd be so great.
I think this would be too much for Star Wars fans to handle. If they actually had this included in the game then space would be the greatest place to go in the game! With Wall-E, Thor and Darth Vader all roaming around the game I think I'd seriously lose my mind.
Square Enix have a lot of pressure on them to get this game right and to include enough characters and varying locations to keep a huge fan-base happy! Like this game could break the world if all of these franchises were included in it!!
Are there any other worlds or characters you'd like to see?! Let me know in the comments!
