Alyson Stoner's casting as Kairi is fine. Not ideal, but she's an acceptable soundalike and I can understand why SE got tired of Hayden turning them down even if they were mostly offering bit parts.
I think Alyson is really good as Kairi, honestly. She has a higher pitched voice than Hayden, but it fits.

I agree. She did a great job in Melody of Memory. The voice sounds more mature, which is what we want from the character.

Hold my beer, I have a good one:
Just saw Puss in Boots 2 and I think it's time KH goes with Dreamworks and drop Disney for good. I felt the Disney magic for the first time in years, by watching a stupid Shrek spinoff!!!

We don't even know the village around the islands. It might be time we learn about it.
Destiny Islands feels like a weaker hub compared to Twilight Town, Land of Departure and Daybreak Town.

Defining it more is overdue but better late than never.
If it's 1.5 hours, it can focus on all three of them. I don't think the 4-6-year-old stories matter so much that they'd have split it into multiple movies.

It would work as a flashback for Kairi. She always felt like an afterthought but never grew out of it. So it's a way to flesh her more.

It's useful in a KH1 remake because her role in that game is too limited to expand on. It's not the only option as you could give her adventures in Sora's subconscious or she becomes a playable character after her return.

I don't mind giving Sora and Riku material before KH1. I rather do it closer to the game like exploring their middle school years as their childhood is more explored.

Not sure if this is unpopular, but I think Zexion should have been the major villain of R/R. I like the idea that both leading figures of the two opposing factions of Castle Oblivion were taken out by the respective heroes. Also, the final fight to take place in the Entrance Hall of the first floor, as it would feel fitting. Defeating the last obstacle standing between the player and the exit of the castle (and end of the game)

Yeah but Ansem still needed to be dealt with in Riku's story. I wish it were that way too but Ansem is Riku's rival in CoM.

True, though I think it would be poetic if Ansem was dealt with in Destiny Islands room. That Riku defeats Ansem in the place where Riku had first chosen to open his heart to darkness.

Hot take: I’m doing a Level 1 run on KH3’s critical mode and I suppose that’s how a souls like game feels like?

I mean, I get killed by nearly everybody.

On a normal run, I have always liked how many heartless and nobodies spawned during battles but on a Lv 1 run it’s really complicated to handle such a massive amount of enemies. I was killed many times by enemies I couldn’t see on the camera.

Paopu fruits should be heart shaped.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End is the worst movie to be adapted for Kingdom Hearts.
Let me counter with my own hot take: how good or bad a movie is doesn't matter. KH3 barely even bothered with AWE's plot. It was basically an excuse for Sora to do AC: Black Flag stuff for a few hours before smacking Davey Jones around. And yeah, the movie was a bit of a mess (they were still writing the script as they filming it. It shows!)

I think Phantom Menace should've been the first SW to adapt with its variety of locations (Naboo alone is 1 of the diverse planets in that galaxy), and Maul better fits KH's faster paced gameplay.

Cars 2 would work the best as the Cars world because it had actually combat in it. And that is an utter dogshit pile of a film!

On the flipside of this equation is I just can't see Encanto working. The world is too small, at least by KH3 standards, even with the big individual rooms of the house. Bruno's "room" is the only one that works at such a scale. The village isn't all the big either. And conflict is just a private family squabble, something that Sora has bo business sticking his nose in.

Counter argument: It could take place after the film and have conflicts Sora would be better suited for (like heartless showing up). Every family member would be a unique and amazing party member to fight with, the character interactions would be so fun, and the majority of madrigals didn't have their rooms shown, meaning the house could be much bigger and more fun than the movie shown. The village could have sides of it that were a mystery, there could be so many secrets that could make it a bigger and more exciting place. And we all know Yoko will do an incredible job with the music. In conclusion, I think Encanto would be a great world to include in Kingdom Hearts.
