Actually I kinda think I'd prefer that. Something to show off the series to old fans or people who didn't play the games but know the overall plot. Harder for them to fuck it up.
Would've loved a cinematic episode where Sora Donald and Goofy first meet in Traverse Town with an epic guard armor fight.

Disney+ announced a lot of new licensed and produced projects for their Asian-Pacific region. For Japan specifically, they've announced new anime series in the forms of Black★★Rock Shooter: DAWN FALL, Summer Time Rendering, Yojohan Time Machine Blues, and... an anime adaptation of Disney's Twisted Wonderland.

Do you think this makes Kingdom Hearts getting a Disney+ series more likely now?
Nice to see Disney jump on the anime train. And yeah I wouldn't be surprised if this leads to an eventual KH anime series. We could get an announcement as soon as next year's 20th anniversary

Honestly surprised about Tatami and Black Rock Shooter, I figured Crunchyroll, Funimation or HIDIVE would’ve gotten those. Though it does beg the question of whether or not it’ll get released in the West on the service or not.

I could see Twisted Wonderland being on there as a way to promote the mobile game in the West(in the event Disney decided to bring it over), but wasn’t expecting the first two.

real talk I've been so amazingly angry that I couldn't play Twisted Wonderland so having either the game or the subbed anime come here would make me a very happy nerd.

Maybe a bit.

But, regardless, I honestly feel that the chances of there being a series are pretty high with it being the 20th anniversary soon and Disney wanting as much content as possible for Disney+.

Though I feel it would also really depend on, if Nomura is game for there being a series. I feel they dont want to step on his toes right now.

Among the casual fans, the crossover element tends to be more appealing than the original lore/characters.

So doing a series where a Disney character teams up with a FF character would be dope.

PS. I have a pitch for Leon/Mickey prequel to KH1. This is just a way to make it canon.

I'm also cool with it being an anthology like Star Wars Visions.

tbh, I feel like promoting KH to a Disney fan feels like scam with how shafted Disney stuff are and with how Disney world plot are more often rehash o the movie, only pixar worlds have tweaks bc pixar is rebel like that. I want to be honest that KH is those kind of crackpot plot kind of fiction, not "lying" it's "just" crossover.

Considering Disney, as a corporation, had done series like House of Mouse, Once Upon a Time, and in more recent years had Phineas and Ferb crossover specials with both Marvel and Star Wars, it’s more surprising that they didn’t make a series already.

And in fairness to at least the first KH game, the worlds weren’t complete movie rehashes, Olympus had its story take place after the movie much like the Pixar worlds, Wonderland ended on a cliffhanger regarding Alice until a later world revealed her fate, and Aladdin found out about the existence of other worlds and entrusted Sora with finding Jasmine with Genie’s help.

That said, I can agree that the crossover angle wouldn’t be enough. To really sell a KH show, there’d need to be more of a focus on th original stuff first before getting into the inevitable crossover aspect. Maybe a 3-episode pilot in the vein of Netflix Voltron could work: setup the characters, the world and then set the story going from there.
