A new world for the upcoming game and an impressive number for the series.

During Disney's D23 Expo over the weekend, Square Enix offered up several pieces of Kingdom Hearts information for the fans.

First, they confirmed that the franchise on the whole has surpassed 21 million units sold, which isn't anything to sneeze at. Secondly, they unveiled a brand new world for Kingdom Hearts III : It's based on the recent animated Disney film, Big Hero 6. I haven't seen it but I imagine that if you want to appeal to a younger demographic, you can't just stick with classic movies from the '80s and '90s, right?

Thirdly and lastly, the developers announced that the villain in KHIII uses the powers of darkness to manipulate the Baymax body that was left behind in the portal. So, the old Baymax body becomes a dark, heartless Baymax, which I suppose is logical. Me, I just play these games for the wonderful, and often nostalgic, atmosphere.

That is awesome. I just hope BH6 isn't the only recent Disney flick to get a new world. I'd really like to see Tangled added as well.

Tangled was already confirmed so no need to worry 🙂

How was Tangled compared to Frozen? My kids are insane about Frozen right now… I have a 3 year old who has the movie memorized…

In my opinion, Tangled is better from story to characters to music. People lost their minds over "Let It Go," but I'd take "I Have A Dream" over that any day. Though I really enjoyed Kristen Bell as Anna, Olaf and his antics, and the relationship between Sven and Kristoff, Frozen just doesn't have the same staying power for me. Either way, do yourself a favor and check it out (with your kiddos, of course. It is currently my son's favorite movie next to The LEGO Movie).
