Can the real world handle this much JRPG-ness?
If you are a fan of the Kingdom Hearts games, then you’ll have likely picked up the most recent edition of the series, which hit consoles everywhere in a major release last year. It was a release fans have been waiting a long time for, but in some recent exciting news, a new rumor is circulating and saying that fans may be getting a live-action television show based on the series!
The Internet and Twitter has been buzzing with this recent rumor that Disney+ is developing a new live-action Kingdom Hearts show for its platform. The TV series would feature Sora, Donald, and Goofy journeying through various Disney movie universes, according to the rumor.

For those unfamiliar with Kingdom Hearts, the classic role-playing video game follows Sora and his friends Donald Duck and Goofy as they embark on a “perilous adventure.” The game is set in various Disney and Pixar worlds and through the power of friendship, the three “unite with iconic Disney-Pixar characters old and new to overcome challenges” and defeat the darkness, according to the game’s official website.
At this time, the rumor is just a rumor and no solid details discussing a potential storyline or plot have emerged. Disney has not confirmed that the video game is being adapted into a TV show, but fans have expressed their strong desire for one for years, so there is the likelihood of Disney developing a series just for its streaming service in the future.
