In KH3 Sora barely survives the prophecy that "light will expire", but he is able to cling on to life thanks to Kairi believing he could. He ends up in the final world, and uses his power to rewrite the events of the past so that the guardians are not immediately defeated by Terra-Xehanort. In interviews and what not, the creators have described this event as a singularity.

Once again after defying the fate set for Kairi by returning her to the RoL, Sora fades away and ends up in the final world.

If there is a crossover at all it will probably take the form of a datascape or a dreamworld.

My best theory atm is that FF worlds with respect to KH are all video games like Verum Rex, which in KH terms would make them datascapes similar to the Tron world.

I think this is why Yozora was introduced, to show us how these FF characters came to arrive in KH and how it might become possible for us to visit these worlds.

KH so far has focused mainly on travel to Disney worlds, and my hope is that the next saga will expand the KH universe to include travel to FF worlds as well.

What I'm not sure they'll actually do though is make the FF worlds in KH connect canonically to the actual FF universes of their respective games.

The best comparison I can think of is how FFXIV handles locations and references to other FF titles. For example in FFXIV you have characters that appear such as Kefka, Exdeath, Ramza, and locations such as Ivalice, or Doma, but the similarities end with name and appearance only. They all have their own in universe lore that is separate from the lore of the FF games that they come from.

There are some special cases, however, during certain special events where characters are supposed to have visited FFXIV's universe from their respective canonical FF universes. These include characters like Lightning, Noctis, and Shantotto, who all were explained to have arrived in FFXIV due to canonical reasons and then returned to their own worlds after the event. FFXIV's universe itself is actually referred to as a dreamworld with respect to these characters.

So while it is possible they could choose to go either way, I think its more likely that they would choose to make non canonical FF worlds for KH and not have the two universes lore collide directly with each other.

That being said, I'd love to see FFVII(R) references or characters return in future KH games. Like I'd love to have an adult Zack wandering in Yozora's vicinity or a slightly-older BBS Zack in TWEWY.

And KH Aerith could help Yozora reunite with the Nameless Star somehow.

I'm just hoping Cloud gets his KH1 powers and design back. Him having the one devil wing was so cool back in the day.
