Re: Aqua Reveals Her Face In New Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Trailer Coming December
Just got up and watched the trailer, and everything is absolutely fantastic!
I don't really care about the Dream Drop Distance sections--or Dream Drop Distance itself anymore (so I won't waste time talking about it here)--but 0.2 and Back Cover have me so psyched!
Everything looks absolutely gorgeous
. And the combat looks like a lot of fun and even a challenge. I'm very curious what's going on in the Realm of Darkness. And was that Traverse Town we saw after Castle of Dreams?!?!?!?!?
Anyway, 0.2 is already making me feel more sorry for Aqua than I ever did before, so kudos to them for that. I just felt like if BbS had done things like Everglow did in this video here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MRr_porQN_g)
--where memories of Terra and Ven start playing in Aqua's head after their falling out, but in a sad tone and almost as something she's fighting against--I would've appreciated her struggles more.
But this really seems to be capturing her feelings marvelously! I wonder if Terra really is there somehow (a manifestation of him, perhaps), or if it's just her memories of him. Probably the latter, but even that could be exciting!
This is the Realm of Darkness and not the Sleeping Realm, so perhaps her recollection of him can be twisted into a false representation of what happened that hurts her. Something along the lines of, "Despite you saying you had the same dream here, you rubbed it in my face that you'd accomplished yours later! You created the wedge between us, so everything that happened to us is your fault!"
Also, Willa Holland's Aqua has improved so much. So
Back Cover. Oh my gosh, Back Cover!
So first off, Unicornius is seeming a lot more important now. He also seems a lot older than he appeared to me in Chi/Unchained Key, but I guess that's to be expected.
But there are some very interesting things happening here! Kind of wish they hadn't spoiled the dandelion plan of Ava's, but SE always spoil their games in trailers, so...
But this whole thing just made me so happy! Ephemera, look at your beautiful face! Look at all of your beautiful faces (mostly behind your masks. Haha).
I'm really loving the voices of some of these people, and am really curious about who some of these actors are (and the fact that they're different from our main cast, does that mean the Rebirth theory isn't true, then?).
Totally shipping Ava and Ephemera even more
now, by that one scene between them
And by the guy in the Organization cloak's mannerisms and voice, I feel like he's the sixth apprentice and Sora! Or, Sora's opposite I should say, as I think that's where Chi is going at this point.
And it's interesting that Ursus is the one saying that they need to stop listening to what the Master said, because I'd think that would be Leopardus--who thinks the darkness needs to be protected--as Urus cares more about power than anything else.
Actually, come to think of it, that scene in the trailer almost makes me think of something that could've happened between Terra and Aqua in BbS if things had escalated.
And can I get an amen for the NPCs that Ava was talking to at the ending there, for how great they all looked. I know that scene happened in Chi, but this movie seemed to be working even harder with it and I'm impressed by what I'm seeing there
I'm so ecstatic. So very
ecstatic. Back Cover is shaping up to be a great movie, and I can't wait to see the whole thing unfold!
And here's hoping this trailer has FINALLY convinced a lot of people--even some KH diehards!--that KH Chi IS SO VERY IMPORTANT and that they need to give it a chance in some way.
What a wonderful thing to wake up to. What a wonderful thing this was!
Edit: Forget my stupid question about Traverse Town. After rewatching the trailer, I realized that, of course, isn't the case. Haha.
Also, the shadow of that one person on Ava's dress at the end! So much beautiful detail is being created with the Unreal 4 engine in these sections. So much detail!
