About 7 months ago, Disney announced that they'd be hosting a Kingdom Hearts event for Japan's 2015 D23 Expo. The date it'll arrive on will be November 3rd, but we know nothing about what to expect. Naturally, fans around the world are finding it pretty difficult to cope with this Square-Enix-induced draught, but the promise of more Kingdom Hearts news is keeping us going.

If we take a look at previous reveals, we may have an inkling of what to expect from this Kingdom Hearts event. Yes, Kingdom Hearts 3 may not even appear at all on November 3rd, but let's not entertain that notion. Instead, let's look at what Disney could be unveiling for fans of this beloved series!

Kingdom Hearts 3 News At D23 - Can We Expect A Release Date?

Square Enix are enjoying incrementally releasing information of the recent Disney movies that will feature in Kingdom Hearts 3 - we've seen it happen with Tangled, and most recently, Big Hero 6. If the release date of Kingdom Hearts 3 really is set for 2017, then this way of releasing information can basically continue for another year! It would be really horrible for us, but it could still work. But which modern Disney movie would you like to see?

Here are the most likely candidates to be announced at D23:

  • Frozen - though this would likely be one of the last, if not the last announcement that Disney would make for Kingdom Hearts 3 though
  • Wreck-It Ralph - This kind of has to happen! I mean come one, it's about Video Games
  • The Princess and The Frog - This film certainly doesn't have the following that the two above do, but it's still a recent Disney classic that could get its own world in Kingdom Hearts 3!
  • Pixar Movies - Pixar has yet to be confirmed for Kingdom Hearts, and we can't help but imagine how beautiful the trailer for its announcement would be. From Up to Toy Story, it would be incredible!

In terms of a new trailer, I don't think we're likely to see anything even remotely like the E3 reveal we enjoyed a few months ago. It's most likely going to be a new world or a new Disney property announcement. But who knows? Perhaps we'll all be pleasantly surprised. Regardless, this wait sucks.

To celebrate D23 Expo 2015 Japan, a Kingdom Hearts fan event will be held on November 3 at Cinema Ikspiari, Tokyo Disney Resort. For more information, head on over to Disney's website!
