One of the things I always look forward to most in a Kingdom Hearts game are the worlds we'll be able to explore. With Kingdom Hearts 3 a year away, I am more hyped than ever. Throughout the series we've been able to explore some of our favorite Disney Movies, but that doesn't mean a few haven't been left out of the fun. With Big Hero 6 and Tangled worlds already announced, I am itching to see what the next world announced will be, and I have my list of 8 worlds I want to see most in Kingdom Hearts 3 right here.
Atlantis: The Lost Empire- Atlantis
Starting a pattern of forgotten early 2000s movies, Atlantis: The Lost Empire brings a lot to the table. Atlantis: The Lost Empire is about Milo, who leads a team of explorers to Atlantis, a lost city with a rich history--that not even Atlanteans can decipher, of course in classic Disney fashion, Milo can. But the reason why it would blend so well is because you have an easy antagonist, Rourke, and with the beautiful scenery we saw in the movie, the world could easily become a fan favorite!
Lilo & Stitch- Hawaii
Now, we did already see a Lilo & Stitch themed world in Birth By Sleep, but we have yet to see Sora and pals go to the main setting of the film, or even meet Lilo for that matter. Because the film was already featured to an extent, both in Kingdom Hearts 2 with Stitch as a summon, and Birth By Sleep with the Deep Space world, but it's time we got to interact with the rest of the main cast in Kingdom Hearts, and Kingdom Hearts 3 is the best place to do it.
Before half of you start singing Let it Go and the other half close the article, just know world would blend perfectly with Kingdom Hearts 3. It has a great story about love and friendship that just works with Kingdom Hearts, and who wouldn't want to battle snowball as a boss? The heartless could be easily incorporated, and If we don't learn blizzard, or any of the stronger versions of the spell, in this world I will be very upset.
Toy Story- Sunnyside
While I may be skipping over both Toy Story and Toy Story 2, I find that the world of Sunnyside and Lotso just blend too perfectly with Kingdom Hearts to pass up. Heartless could enter the story incredibly well, and maybe we could get a summon in the form of Buzz Lightyear and/or Woody. Please?
Princess And The Frog- New Orleans
The film that kicked off the Disney Revival, and one of my personal favorites. Dr. Facilier totally deserves to be a big bad in the series, and we NEED to see Sora, Donald, and Goofy battle their way through the Bayou. The darkness is already clear in the movie, and the inclusion of heartless would feel very natural in the story. Also perhaps there could be a Louis summon? Maybe? Please?
Monsters Inc.- Monstropolis
Another Pixar film, Monsters Inc, is perhaps one of my favorite Pixar movies, and with so many bright characters and such a fun setting, Monstropolis makes for a great addition to Kingdom Hearts 3. Imagine the monsters' reaction to Sora, or even better, Monster Sora! Sora could team up with Mike and Sully to defeat Randal and the heartless, who could just be seen as ordinary monsters in Monstropolis. With the heartless being treated similar to the way they were in Halloweentown in the first Kingdom Hearts, we could see the inhabitants of the world take a friendlier approach to the heartless at first, without knowing what they really are.
The Emperor's New Groove- Kingdom Of The Sun
Taking the original name of the film for the name of the world here, but actually though, imagine traveling along with Llama Kuzco and Pacha, then fighting Yzma, oh boy and imagine how it would look! This is one of my favorite Disney movies of all time, and finally getting to see it represented in Kingdom Hearts 3 would be a dream come true!
Treasure Planet- Pretty Much The Entire Movie
Okay, I can't think of a better example of an underrated movie. This movie is so great on so many levels that I can't even imagine, but why would it be so great for Kingdom Hearts 3? Not only could heartless blend seamlessly into this world, but so would Sora, Donald and Goofy. This is one of the two worlds I've been asking for for basically ever, and hopefully this next installment is what finally includes this forgotten film.
Well there you have it, my list of 8 new worlds I want to see featured in Kingdom Hearts 3! Did I miss any you really want? Are there any here you don't want to see? Let me know in the comments!
