Think KH would bomb as a Disney+ show given the nature of the series. It'd just get dumbed down and over-explained for kids, and the edgy Final Fantasy stuff would never make it in.
If you're talking about critical reception then I'll just take a "wait and see" approach. A streaming show is new territory for Square Enix. Who knows, maybe we may get a Square Enix + Walt Disney Animation Studios collaboration for Kingdom Hearts. From a commercial standpoint, an idea like this is just too nostalgic not be a commercial success given Kingdom Hearts' popularity.

Disney doesn't even know what to do with him anymore.
There are rumours that Oswald the Lucky Rabbit is getting his own Disney+ show. Maybe Disney wants to give him a modern look so he isn't stuck as the retro Disney character, and from there, Oswald and his cast and be cross-promoted to other Disney properties.

In our own way, we all do. Deep down, in the depths of the heart.

Our hearts are all connected by One Artery: Nomura. And we shall all to his Kingdom, come.


Just a loooooot deeper down in my heart tho. My right ventricle is positively cavernous; he's down there somewhere.

Honestly I doubt this new series has any bearing on the possibility of the rumored KH show. Its not like Kingdom Hearts was the first Disney crossover

They also denied Treasure Planet in DDD so...I mean I already dislike them. God I wish we got Oswald.
Really? I would've loved both, but I didn't realize TP was denied by Disney. I assumed it was a world SE considered that they ultimately decided not to go with yet (sort of like how The Jungle Book was briefly considered for BbS). That sucks if true. It means Disney only wants popular properties to be advertised--so the likelihood movies like TP, TBC, etc. end up in KH are nil. But wait, Disney were fine with them using Hunchback for the same game they denied TP's use for? It doesn't make any sense...

Reading through the past few pages of discussion, it made me think about it and I actually question how well a TV series would do after the initial hype of people who don't know what KH is checking out the first episodes. A lot of KH's appeal is being able to wander and move around through locales and environments from movies you like. That wouldn't really apply with a TV series. If you want to see PotC, for example, you could just turn on PotC instead of watching another show that depicts the same things? I would say that some of the appeal would be seeing SDG interacting with the Disney cast, but we know that Disney is fodder these days, with very little connection between the original characters and the Disney content. And the Disney characters from different films rarely intersect with one another either--so people who'd like that kind of cross-sampling wouldn't find it in KH unlike, say, the Wrecked Princess franchise that's come out of that scene in Ralph Breaks the Internet. The only appeal I can think this show would have with non-KH fans would be seeing the hand-drawn characters of classic Disney films in 3D, or if viewers simply really fall in love with Sora or one of the other original characters.

Part of me wonders if a TV series might open a can of worms in regards to replacing voice actors, too... That's one of the things I most fear happening to KH and a TV series would be starting over at the beginning when Sora was at his youngest. (IF it's a re-telling of KH1, I should say.)

Part of me kinda hopes we get 2 voices for Sora: one could be a vocal match for KH1!Sora and the other would of course be HJO. That’d help with the disconnect that happens in the games. Because going straight from KH1 to Re:Chain of Memories and hearing KH2!Sora’s voice out of KH1!Sora still feels odd.

I agree, hearing KH2 HJO with the old model in Re:CoM was a little freaky at first. That would be the best way it could happen if they only get a new (young) voice for flashbacks or any re-tellings of the first game, and HJO remains as Sora in the present.

I could not agree more. HJO is a good guy but he isn't a precocious kid anymore however I think it has something to do with the voice direction of the games.

Actually, your assumption is probably the one that's correct. It's believed that Treasure Planet was considered at some point based on the datamined pirate ship model, but neither SE nor Disney have ever mentioned that film in relation to KH, outside of KH1 when Nomura said they decided against using it due to too many vehicles.
