That’s actually kinda neat. Maybe working on that pilot is what let to him getting the role. Apparently, if Wikipedia is accurate, he also played some additional voices in The Jungle Book 2, where HJO played Mowgli and Mae Whitman was Shanti.

It’s most likely that Square and Disney were pulling from a similar talent pool at the time, but I think that’s a pretty neat unintentional connection

Oh, wow. I could sort of picture Vaan's VA playing Sora.
Same! When I first learned about it I realised that they both could kinda effortlessly pass for the other on certain line, particularly KH2 Sora and Vaan imo.

And that's all without even trying haha

Video games are hard to adapt because storytelling tends to be secondary or seperate. Even games with stories tend to feel disjointed or padded out. So you'd have to reassess what to keep/cut etc.

I'd say a new cast and story like the Mandalorian would be best. Most casual fans tend to find the Xehanort stuff off-putting so moving away from it would be advisable. You could reintroduce it later but try something new for the first impression.

You could do some fun pairings like Aqua with Webby or Ven with Oswald etc.

Yes, he was the ADR actor for HJO. In films, when you can't get an actor back for a reshoot or pickup, a soundalike will dub over for them. He was that for The Jungle Book

Makes sense. I remember Josh Keaton talking about that before on a Voltron after show podcast.
While his main role on the show was Black Lion pilot Shiro, he also did ADR for one of the shopkeepers in the Season 2 episode “Space Mall”.

And of course, a more known use of ADR is foreign language dubbing, be it animation or live action drama for audiences overseas or foreign shows getting brought to English speaking audiences to be dubbed.

On the off chance that this is still happening, my last hope for a reveal is this being a surprise announcement
at Jump Festa in tandem with any KH IV or Missing Link news if either of those titles show up there this year.

I guess anything could happen at this point if it is still in development.
