It could have been availability on Xbone, but I personally feel that millennials are on a nostalgia high so KH3 is basically the epitome of nostalgia to the people that only played KH1 and 2 (and/or fans of Disney/Pixar films). Also, I think the worlds selected fit a wide range of current kids/teenagers who are nostalgic to films like Tangled/Frozen/Pirates of the Caribbean (like if they saw Frozen when they were 10, they would be 16 now) and whose parents probably played KH1 and 2 and/or own a PS4/Xbone themselves, so it just really spread across a lot of demographics.I'm actually a little surprised KH3 has outsold KH1 considering KH2 never came close to that. The power of Frozen.
But, no, really, the likeliest reason is that it was available for two systems at first release, right?
I actually think that this is very interesting considering they were first planning to let KH3 start off with Aqua in the RoD. From a fan’s point of view, I think this would have been great for the experience.That's why KH3 starts off in Olympus rather than an original world and the overall lack of original worlds (this is all the speculation in my mind).
Disney will be in future titles don't worry about it, The new seven princesses (we've seen 4 we still don't know who the other 3 are) also Pete and Maleficent being in the epilogue clearly indicates that they will play a role in future games.That's only if KH4 includes Disney. The secret ending didn't really hint at that.
I really do have to congratulate KH3 for selling so well. If it's correct that it had sold over 7.3 million copies at the end of April then, if it keeps going at this rate, it could become Square Enix's best selling game, surpassing FFXV. Maybe the game can reach the 10 million milestone in the future.Battlefield V is right below it in the rankings for sales over the last 12 months. The latter game has sold 7.3 million as of a few months ago, so KH3 has sold at least that.
I believe Square's best selling game is still FFVII although that includes all re-releases and ports. It's about 11 million from what I remember and had about 9 million in its original release in 1997.I really do have to congratulate KH3 for selling so well.

And with KH4, it depends how much hype there will be with some of the chosen properties. Worlds based off The Incredibles, Frozen 2, Zootopia, etc will likely have fans of those films play the game.
