    Official Shipping Discussion | ships ahoy | sharing is caring: fan creations (fic, art, etc.)

    No? How the hell did you come up with that interpretation? Square Enix has shown no reluctance in portraying Sora and Kairi as the lead couple of Kingdom Hearts. It's been that way since KH1, but ReMind was especially clear on this topic. That doesn't mean it's the best ship, or that you...

    Official Shipping Discussion | ships ahoy | sharing is caring: fan creations (fic, art, etc.)

    RikuNami is the ONLY ship that Nomura has gone out of his way to say "Whoops, that's not how we intended that scene to be interpreted," and you think that that was just a way to keep the bait out for SoRiku fans? In spite of the fact that they're not exactly cagey about SoKai? RokuNami was...

    Did you like the direction that the developers took Kingdom Hearts?

    It kind of feels like this is a strategy of "leave characters deliberately underdeveloped so that we can tie their backstories to later plot developments" backfiring. There was a game where every member of Organization XIII was playable, surely this is where they'll get development, right...

    News ► A Kingdom Hearts Disney Plus CGI series is rumored to be in the works

    I know what you meant here, but this made me think of a show literally produced in the KH universe. Like the characters sold the rights to their life stories, resulting in a docuseries called Keyblades and Courage: The Kingdom Hearts Story. Now airing on Twilight Town TV.

    Did you like the direction that the developers took Kingdom Hearts?

    Ideally I wish they could have kept the melancholic fairy tale atmosphere, but it's easy fantasize about might-have-beens. I think my least favorite part of the direction the series has taken is how it seems to shift on a whim. Say what you will about KHUX and the Keyblade War, but they're...

    News ► A Kingdom Hearts Disney Plus CGI series is rumored to be in the works

    Clearly the best solution is to turn Kingdom Hearts into a stage musical: Musicals can have longer runtimes than theatrical films Many of the worlds visited are already based on musical movies People understand the limits of stage props, so the lack of anime designs will be easier to forgive...

    News ► A Kingdom Hearts Disney Plus CGI series is rumored to be in the works

    If what you're trying to say is that the original material is what should be focused on Destiny Islands through Traverse Town is still a pretty poor choice. Because the only Ansem that sequence contains is the potato sack one. Sure, you could move finding his reports forward into the story...

    News ► A Kingdom Hearts Disney Plus CGI series is rumored to be in the works

    Have you heard of the Netflix show Jupiter's Legacy? It's an adaptation of a comic book. Or rather, it's an adaptation of the first three issues of a comic book. Netflix wanted it to be their big mature superhero show, but at the time it was being produced it only had ten issues in the main...

    News ► A Kingdom Hearts Disney Plus CGI series is rumored to be in the works

    Destiny Islands though Traverse Town has, at most, two episodes worth of content. Even assuming that this is only a 75 minute movie you'd have to pad it out to high heaven to make it into a full film. In fact, if we go by this cutscene compilation Sora, Donald, and Goofy enter Wonderland at...

    News ► A Kingdom Hearts Disney Plus CGI series is rumored to be in the works

    My suggestion of having four Disney worlds was an attempt to find a compromise between "this is supposed to be a long journey where they visit numerous worlds" and "this is a movie adaptation that will at most have a runtime of two hours and some change, there's no room for a long journey."...

    News ► A Kingdom Hearts Disney Plus CGI series is rumored to be in the works

    So. Um. Back to talking about the movie. I guess it would be possible to strip down and summarize KH1 to the point that there are only a few Disney worlds: Wonderland, Agrabah, Neverland, and arguably Monstro (depending on how much of Riku's arc is preserved.) This list is a bit...

    News ► A Kingdom Hearts Disney Plus CGI series is rumored to be in the works

    I certainly hope this rumor is wrong, but the more I think about it the more it makes (bad) sense from some points of view. First of all, some executives will avoid animation whenever possible. For an example look at the Dragon's Lair movie Netflix is supposed to be working on. It's a video...

    News ► A Kingdom Hearts Disney Plus CGI series is rumored to be in the works

    Weren't there some rumors that this would be live action back when this was supposed to be a series? I don't think they gained much traction because the concept of live action Kingdom Hearts just doesn't fit. And yet... The only reason I could see for going with live action over animated...

    News ► A Kingdom Hearts Disney Plus CGI series is rumored to be in the works

    To be fair, movies aren't exactly Nomura's forte. He's fantastic when directing games, but movies are an entirely different medium. That's why his name is associated with so many classic games, but Advent Children and Back Cover are um... well... Disney has many of the top creative minds on...

    News ► A Kingdom Hearts Disney Plus CGI series is rumored to be in the works

    The idea of having a theatrical movie feels like a double-edged sword to me. On one hand, if it's a movie in theaters there's no way that it's just a limited thing that Disney won't pay much attention to. They were terrified of crossovers for so long, there's no way they would allow the first...

    General Kingdom Hearts Manga Discussion

    Maybe we shouldn't be treating the manga as something that has a "verse." At this point it's clear that the KH3 manga isn't an adaptation that's supposed to stand on its own from the source material, instead it exists as promotional material for the game. Hence why it skipped over important...

    General Kingdom Hearts Manga Discussion

    This feels kind of like an imitation of someone renting a game or borrowing one from a library. At first you're just playing the game and taking the time to enjoy it, then suddenly the due date is coming up and there's no option to renew, so you're rushing through the final levels and skipping...

    The Unpopular Opinions Thread

    Nobodies DO age. This is an example of why WoG is not the same thing as canon. We have one interview saying that Nobodies don't age against things like Ienzo having completely different models when losing his heart and after regaining it and Namine having different models for CoM and KH2. KH...
