The glory of [Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens](tag:711158) has been unleashed upon the world and it was quite a wondrous early Christmas present. But now that we know of all its characters and events, fans are beginning to hypothesize about where [Star Wars: Episode VIII](tag:711868) will take us with these new lovable characters.

But aside from the continuation of the Star Wars franchise, there's another area that we could see Star Wars 7 in - the realm of Video Games. The Kingdom Hearts franchise will finally get its third installment either in 2016 or early 2017, and seeing as Disney owns so many different IPs, we're all wondering whether the likes of Marvel and Star Wars could appear in-game.

Could We See Star Wars 7 On The Release Date Of Kingdom Hearts 3?

When this discussion has been brought up in the past, fans seemed to be fairly divided on the notion of including Star Wars in the Kingdom Hearts games. These titles were born out of the artists' appreciation for the animation style of Walt Disney's classics and the anime masterpieces from Japan. All of this is wrapped up in a JRPG framework that has captivated fans around the world.

Therefore, when it comes to franchise's like Star Wars, fans don't feel like this intellectual property belongs in the Kingdom Hearts universe. Well, not all of them. But there is a fairly vocal community who share this view.

Square Enix have made live-action work in the Kingdom Hearts games before - we've seen it with Pirates of the Caribbean! Therefore, I don't doubt whether they could do justice to Star Wars at all, that's nothing that I'm particularly concerned with. In fact, after having seen Star Wars Episode 7, I'm inclined to think that characters like Rey and Finn would be perfect for the Kingdom Hearts universe!

Kingdom Hearts 3 has the potential to give us so many worlds and characters from a seemingly endless list of films. We all have our preferences in terms of characters and worlds that should appear in-game, and while Star Wars 7 might not be a priority for some, can you see this movie working on the release date of Kingdom Hearts 3?

From Kylo Ren to Rey, I'd love to see all of these new characters appear on a Star Wars world and have Goofy, Donald and Sora interact with them. Seeing as Disney has confirmed very recent movies from their oeuvre, like Big Hero 6, I can't see any reason why Star Wars 7 wouldn't be considered. Let us know where you stand on this idea in the comments below!
