While everyone seems to have a consensus on a reimagination of KH1 as the setup for the story (which I'd love if done right as others mentioned, they could really make wonders with this by adding more references, editing some stuff in and out and making it more cohesive with later stuff), I think the best approach to this animation would be as a Chi duology animation?

The Gacha games were made to be an easy standalone to get in, after all. And they could easily make some fun stuff as the Book of Phopecy setup allows them to continuously use any worlds they want to use while being able to setup a cast of unique characters for the Player and other alliances, all the while selling merch of the different unions and marketing the very lucrative mobile games.

And for us consumers, it means we could finally have a proper adaptation of those games as Back Cover is really barebones (and it's more of a complementary piece rather than a tl;dr of the first game).
This would be fantastic but the rumours are based around them getting the Disney voice cast from the game back, including the voice actors for Donald and Goofy.

There could be a segment set in present time to introduce something that would feature Donald & Goofy, or maybe they could have Disney Town featured as a world; anything could work, really, since it'd be an adaptation of a game with a very loose story.

Still, I wouldn't be surprised if we see X/UX being adapted in a modern animation-esque way at some point since it allows for them to use the KH property while still writing a unique cast of characters, giving much more freedom for that sort of stuff. Kinda like the Star Wars animations, specially Rebels.

Wegothiscovered.com had an article where Ryan Potter was cast as a live action Sora. It's a clickbait rumor but i could see it working. Ryan Potter's the voice of Hiro from Big Hero 6. He also played Beast Boy in the Titans show and based on that performance I think he's a decent choice for Sora.

He's in his 20s right now so I'd probably get someone younger to play Sora. Unless you wanna set it when Sora is in his twenties. That's one way to tie into the games. If I was doing the Last Airbender or Legend of Korra I'd probably do that instead of redoing the show.

To be honest a live action Kingdom Hearts would be unwise but I am curious about it.

The best option for me would be to create a new protagonist and tell their story. The KH universe is pretty big and there were other things going on then Xehanort and his schemes. I'm thinking like Star Wars Rebels or Vigilantes the My Hero Academia spinoff.

Its an easier compromise to make and it harkens back to the series roots as a multi-fandom crossover fanfic with an oc lead. This line is meant to be cheeky than insulting.

It could jump the shark but it could be fun.

Will the story be the same? Or will Nomura fix it? And by fix it I mean will he make it easy to understand for many without them wrecking their brains when trying to understand the plot?

We don't really know what the D+ series is going to cover. We'll just have to wait and see what the KH staff come up with.

Do we currently even know for sure that the series is happening? It's been months since the rumour and since then there's been nothing on it.

I'm fairly reassured in its existence unlike when it first got leaked. Those news sleuths from places like DisInsider have very reliable sources inside of the entertainment industry. The only reason we likely haven't heard anything else is because it is too early for there to be new information beyond what was leaked.

I think "Once Upon A Time" is probably the closest we'd see to a live action Kingdom Hearts. The elevator pitch for the series would be "Once Upon a Time meets Star Wars".

It's still a bad idea but I can't stop thinking about it. I'd probably use someone new instead of Sora and the others. It feels like the path of least pain.

I was fine with him not being the lead of every game. So I'm fine with testing that in a live action format.

Granted you could still adapt the Xehanort saga in live action. I was just laying out options and its not my preference.

By Xehanort saga I meant KH1-KH3 and the games in between. I thought those games were called the Xehanort saga. I also heard them referred as the Dark Seeker saga.

I don't think keeping Sora as the protagonist was a good idea but thats a whole other discussion.

It is called The Dark seeker saga but sums up as “Old man thought Darkness can beat light but failed...to a bunch of kids” lol he will always be the hero, Sora is the Perfect hero and he relies on his friends who give him strength who without him would not have bodies, released from realms of darkness and sleep and there’s nothing you can do about it 😁
