Kingdom of Corona

First Appearance: KINGDOM HEARTS III (2019)
 Tangled (2010)

Sora, Donald, and Goofy were enjoying a leisurely stroll through the forest when a man came running by with the Heartless hot on his heels. The man introduced himself as Flynn Rider and asked Sora, Donald, and Goofy to deal with the threat. But by the time the dust had settled, Flynn Rider was gone. Sora searched the environs, and discovered a hidden passage that led to a tower just like something out of a painting.

They reached the base of the tower just in time to see Flynn descending it alongside Rapunzel, a girl with long, looong hair. She had never been outside the tower before, and her one wish was to travel to the Kingdom and watch the people of Corona send up the lanterns. Concerned about all the Heartless, Sora volunteered to help Flynn escort her there safely.

Sora, Donald, Goofy, Flynn, and Rapunzel all made good progress, thanks in large part to Rapunzel’s bravery, but when they scaled a hill and found a flower patch pull of ferocious Nobodies, Sora urged his new friends to flee while, Donald, and Goofy pruned the threats back.

After the battle, the Organization’s Marluxia appeared with an unexpected demand: that Sora protect Rapunzel, the precious light of this world.

Someone else had been looking for Rapunzel, too: Mother Gothel, who lived with Rapunzel in the tower. Sora was starting to fear for Rapunzel’s safety, but perhaps he was worried about the wrong person. The royal guards’ most tenacious steed, Maximus, seemed to have a bone to pick with Mr. Flynn Rider.

Rapunzel’s gentle words convinced Maximus to be nice (or at least relatively nice) to Flynn until they all got to the Kingdom. It sure was a relief for them all to be back together again, where they could look after each other.

After a lively round of dancing in the bustling city square, the group parted ways. Rapunzel and Flynn rowed out onto the lake, while Sora and the others watched from the dock as the lanterns took flight.

Always there to ruin the moment, Marluxia and his Nobodies appeared and helped guide Rapunzel away from Flynn and back to Mother Gothel. Marluxia needed Rapunzel, one of the “New Seven Hearts,” to stay in the tower where she would be safe – and possibly useful to the Organization.

Sora grew furious at this revelation, but Marluxia used his powers to put him in a deep sleep before he could fight back.

A slobbery tongue-bath from Maximus woke Sora from his slumber, where Flynn, Donald, and Goofy were waiting. Flynn raced ahead to the tower to free Rapunzel while the rest dealt with a seemingly endless supply of Nobodies.

At the tower, Sora watched as a cape fell from the window and spawned a powerful Heartless. It was a tough fight, but the guardians of light prevailed.

Things nearly ended badly for Eugene – turns out that’s Flynn’s real name – but Rapunzel saved his life with the magic in her tears. She was the lost princess that they saw in the Kingdom’s mosaic, whom Mother Gothel had taken as a baby. It was also Mother Gothel who had brought Rapunzel the tiara in an attempt to drive her and Eugene apart.

Knowing Eugene and Rapunzel had found true love and would look after each other, Sora, Donald, and Goofy parted ways with them, stronger for their new friendships and ready to explore more worlds.
