Kingdom Hearts Creator Talks Disney’s Recent Acquisitions

Yesterday we asked ourselves, whether or not Star Wars could become part of the Kingdom Hearts franchise, but apparently we weren’t the only ones asking that question.

Tetsuya Nomura, the director of Kingdom Hearts III has explained his path of action (in an interview with IGN) when he hears that Disney have acquired the rights to another company.

“Whenever I hear of the news, I always say, ‘woah…they’ve done it again.’”

“The first thing I do when I find out this news is contact Disney and see if it’s something I can use [in Kingdom Hearts].”

The real tease is that they don’t always say no “Disney’s companies are all very different. Sometimes the answer is ‘absolutely no,’ and sometimes the answer is, ‘…hmm, we don’t know…’”

With Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar and Studio Ghibli, the list of potential worlds available for Kingdom Hearts III is about as diverse as they come, where would you visit on Sora’s next adventure?
