Square Enix and Disney Interactive has revealed at this year’s D23 Expo in Anaheim that Kingdom Hearts III will include Big Hero 6.
Academy Award-winning producer Roy Conli delighted fans with the announcement that Big Hero 6 characters will be an integral part of Kingdom Hearts III. In a video message for D23 attendees, Conli draws parallels between core elements of the animated film and the overarching Kingdom Hearts story, remarking: “Big Hero 6 is such a special film for me – and we always made sure that each action sequence had a very special meaning. The themes in Kingdom Hearts and Big Hero 6 match very well. For instance there’s friendship, really important to both stories, and then of course light over darkness.”
Kingdom Hearts III is currently in development for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
