To channel Parks and Recreation's Chris Traeger, let me say that the recent news about Kingdom Hearts 3 is LITERALLY, the greatest piece of news we've ever received. Big Hero 6 is actually going to feature in Kingdom Hearts 3 and that's all I've wanted from the beginning! Also, with Baymax on board, I'm sure that those who've adored Frozen and want to see it in this highly anticipated game will have their dream come true along with it.
But with so many new worlds and characters arriving on the release date of Kingdom Hearts 3, Square Enix are going to have to make a lot of room. Therefore, we're sure that there will plenty of previous Disney characters and worlds removed for the next installment. So we thought we'd compile a list of every character and world from previous games we don't want for Kingdom Hearts 3!
Kingdom Hearts 3 - The Disney Characters & Worlds That Need to Disappear!
There are countless frustrating sections peppered throughout the Kingdom Hearts series. Some of them were worth it, while others just felt like torture. Obviously this can be a pretty subjective topic, so we'd love to hear what characters and worlds you don't want in Kingdom Hearts 3 too!
Kingdom Hearts Characters
So far, there has been a pretty clear consensus that Pete is someone that hasn't had a lot of love in Kingdom Hearts. One of the original villains in Disney's history has been tied to some frustrating elements of Kingdom Hearts and I suppose I can't help but agree. Also, I've always had a pet peeve for Lock, Stock and Barrel from The Nightmare Before Christmas, too. Their frustration reached new heights in 358/2 Days and I hope they're nowhere near Kingdom Hearts 3.
Tron in Kingdom Hearts 2 was one particular character that I had no fondness for. Perhaps that's because I really didn't like the film either, but I hope that Disney don't force him into Kingdom Hearts 3. On a side note, what's with all of the Kairi haters? What's up with that?

Kingdom Hearts Worlds
Taking a look at the characters that I've listed above, even though I wasn't a fan of them, they all actually inhabited worlds I liked. Halloween Town was great, the Timeless River section was beautiful, and even The Pirates of The Caribbean was pretty good. However, Tron has been hit and miss.
Dream Drop Distance features one of the most irritating worlds in the series, The Grid. The version that Square Enix created for Kingdom Hearts 2 was far superior. This location was confusing and poorly structured. Let's hope there's nothing like this place in Kingdom Hearts 3!
Wonderland is one world that I've never enjoyed. It was used so many times throughout the series and I never found any of them to be particularly compelling. Let's hope that Alice and her friends are nowhere to be found in Kingdom Hearts 3. Additionally, the Atlantis section in Kingdom Hearts (and Kingdom Hearts 2) was so annoying. It removed so many of your abilities, it was difficult to control and it just wasn't worth the effort.
Lastly, I was actually really frustrated by Tarzan's world in Kingdom Hearts. Figuring out how the hell you had to navigate it was so frustrating, and if you fell down to the lower section, the amount of time it took to get back to where you wanted to be was unnecessary.
What Don't You Want to Return for Kingdom Hearts 3?
So there you have it! My list wouldn't remove too many characters from the series, but I think all of these characters and worlds have had enough exposure in Kingdom Hearts. It's time to celebrate some new places, with a mixture of some Disney characters who really haven't had enough love! Let us know where you stand in the comments below on what you don't want to see in Kingdom Hearts 3.
