I love this cover. I wonder how many volumes there will be to the KH3 manga. I'm guessing at least one of the installments will have an Arendelle cover?

He has been known to skip some worlds (or rearrange their placement within the story), not that Arendelle will get the axe.
- KHI: Deep Jungle, Halloween Town
- CoM: every world but Traverse Town and Agrabah
- Days: Halloween Town
- KHII: 100 Acre Wood, Atlantica, Port Royal, Pride Lands, Halloween Town / Christmas Town

Concerning KHIII, it will be especially interesting if Amano writes in The Caribbean. Will we get a flashback of events that would fit in Manga!KHII's plot, or will we see Manga!SDG forming a new relationship with Jack? Amano could circumvent this and skip the world again.

But I do wonder what is going to deviate and what will be condensed. From a narrative standpoint, he has a nightmarish task ahead of him. There's still so much to cover that's not just KHIII, and then he has the actual structure of KHIII's plot to sort out. He's touched on 0.2 a fair amount (and by proxy tidbits of BBS), I just hope it's not too choppy of a read with all the back-and-forth.

This could potentially be the longest manga project just due to the sheer amount of ground to cover.

I wonder if it’s a coincidence that both of the worlds missing from kh1 are also the ones with more complex legalities (hope this word applies cause i can’t think of another one) involved.

KH2’s list is even more surprising but i guess none of those had really much significance storywise to begin with, although a chapter filled with images of sora and the gang dancing could’ve been fun to see

I already have this marked to get along with the final KH3 novel next year. So many KH book goodies. Need to make some space on my bookshelves for them.

The only world I could see them skipping would be Port Royal. I think everything else is bound to happen. Frozen probably is mandatory no matter what. The Disney chapters usually aren't that long so it probably won't be too much lengthier then the KH2 manga. It's the KH original stuff that will need coverage since BBS and DDD don't have mangas. But I'm not worried. They can make some humorous moments out of it all. Can't wait to collect them all!

@Rydgea: Thanks for letting me know. I have KH1 / CoM, but I still need to get the last volume of the KH2 manga and 2 of the Days manga. I suppose it makes sense why they'd skip several KH2 worlds; that game was bloated. I hope they don't skip Arendelle... :/ The PIXAR characters are going to look so bad hand-drawn, especially Sully and Mike. I'd rather they cut one of them and BH6. Port Royal could go, too, although this might be the last chance to include that world in the manga perhaps? And naturally 100 Acre Wood wasn't substantial enough to include.

To be honest, they'd have to cut plot points or change them in order to cut most of KHIII worlds. All of them have some connection to the overall plot and an Organization member. Port Royal and 100 Acre Woods are the only ones I can see getting the axe (and possibly Tangled since Frozen is a retread).

What makes you think Tangled would get the axe? It's not Frozen level, but it's certainly a popular enough Disney property to use. Port Royal to me is the only one they might skip, because whether it was the manga or novels, Amano has yet to draw the Caribbean. I'll be surprised if it's included. I imagine it would look something similar to how Tron looked in the KH2 manga.

I was just about to post this. I'm mad because I had it preordered and it looks like it was removed from my Amazon order list. I was looking forward to getting this almost along side MoM. Oh well, I guess I can get the light novels in the meantime.
