I love how for this cover picture they used nearly all KH3 pics EXCEPT for a random Mulan and Genie in Pre KH3 graphics. Kinda stick out like sore thumbs no?

I wonder what the deal with marketing mulan related to KH is anyway what with her placement here and in Talisman.
Maybe they are marketing to the Chinese audiences...like movies, maybe? Either way Mulan is cool.

This is so cool, this brings back many memories of how in every scholastic Bookfair they have various handbook Encylopedia usually from Disney, to Star Wars, to Pokemon you name it and I'm so looking forward on getting this book.

Interesting to see Mulan and Genie being the only Pre-KH3 images and characters on the front cover.

The perks of having a sister still in primary school: I still get to go to scholastic book fairs. Even better is she always wants me to take her to school on those days because she knows my parents won't buy her anything xD

As for that whole, appealing to kids thing, that's what KH marketing has always been based on, nothing wrong with that. But in truth, I would prefer it if a long awaited game meant to be a conclusion to multiple arcs wasn't the kid oriented one, save it for the side game.

Fam, if y'all got schools that still accept donations for books, please be sure to purchase this book for your school's library. This is how we indoctrinate the children while they are young.
Idk if this works for all schools but the primary school I volunteer in get a checklist of the book fair items and reserve 1-2 copies of popular books for themselves (their libraries I mean). But of course, donations are brilliant too. Speaking from experience, there's a lot of books schools simply can't get their hands on that are pretty great for kids needing to build up reading ability, mostly because they only had short print runs, things like old goosebumps books or Robert sewell.

I was going to make a comment on being triggered on Olaf being on the cover in general and there are several better Disney/Pixar characters to use, but then I remembered all the snowman minigame memes that came from it and can safely say...Olaf has earned his spot on the cover.

Olaf is a goddamn g. After Frozen 2, Olaf can do anything and I will praise it. I will rebuild Olaf a hundred times if I have to. He can stand right next to Sora on the cover of any book, even.

And Maleficent gets the tiniest little corner.

Xemnas being covered up by the Keyblade also amuses me.

The more I look at the cover, the more it bothers me.
Let that stand as a representation of their roles in the KH franchise. Maleficent and Xemnas were naught more than microcosms of the plot. Clearly, Olaf being in full display can mean only one thing. The frozen world WILL return, and it will be even worse than in KH 3. I'm calling it now, if you agree like this comment.
