Could Marvel, Pixar & LucasFilm worlds be in Kingdom Hearts 3?

Kingdom Hearts III

It seems as if, in recent years, the focus on gaming news has shifted to two new(ish) branches of the industry: app gaming, and real money gambling online.

With no major new gaming consoles coming out in the past few years, online gaming saw most of the growth in the industry. This is why each popular new gaming app generates so much enthusiasm, or why legal gambling at sites such as Betfair online brings in millions of gamers! But, while app gaming and real money gambling are by no means slowing down, console gaming is speeding up again, and that’s good news for gamers.

Naturally, the official announcements of Xbox One and PS4 signaled a new era of console gaming – one that will bring not only breathtaking consoles, but also hundreds of exciting new games. Among these games, of course, will be Kingdom Hearts 3.

Perhaps the most exciting thing to speculate in terms of the worlds that might appear, is the larger arsenal that Disney has acquired, and how that might factor into the scenes and characters we see in Sora’s next adventure.

Most notably, Disney now owns Marvel Entertainment, Pixar, and Lucasfilm, which would seem to put an incredible number of fantasy characters in play. Just for fun, here’s a look at some characters we could see from each new acquisition.

Marvel Entertainment

Marvel is probably the hottest of the three acquisitions in the news, simply because of the recent onslaught of Marvel superhero films. Indeed, it seems as if characters like Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, and many others are now in play!


Each Pixar film brings us some absolutely lovable new characters, and in some ways they would seem to fit best in a Kingdom Hearts game. Who wouldn’t love to stumble across Buzz Lightyear or Woody from Toy Story, or anyone from Monsters, Inc. or The Incredibles!?


Naturally, the Lucasfilm characters on everybody’s mind are the Star Wars saga characters, and it would certainly be exciting to see them make appearances. But don’t forget about other Lucasfilm franchises like Indiana Jones and The Land Before Time!

Of course, it may well be that we don’t see any of these characters in the next Kingdom Hearts game. But among all of the gaming details concerning plot, graphics, etc., perhaps the most exciting possibility is that Disney’s latest acquisitions of major companies full of characters will play into the game to create an even more dynamic environment.
