Disney helps make Kingdom Hearts. Disney owns Star Wars. Seems like a match made in carbonite heaven, right?
As soon as word came out that Disney had purchased LucasFilm—and consequently, the right to adventures in the world of Star Wars—people started wondering what that'd mean for Square Enix's popular action-RPG series, which is created in collaboration with Disney.
Tetsuya Nomura, the Square Enix superstar who created Kingdom Hearts, is wondering too. And he wants the crossover to happen in the recently-announced Kingdom Hearts III (which he's directing), according to an interview conducted last weekend at the Japan Expo with the French gaming site Finaland.
"We’ve been talking about Star Wars itself since it became Disney’s content recently," Nomura said. "When I [heard] the news I was like, 'Wow! Wow!' Yeah obviously it’s gonna be great if we could add it, but like I said there are a lot of restrictions and rules by Disney so we don’t know what’s gonna happen but yeah, we’ll see."
Man, I can so imagine Sora and crew fighting on like, the Death Star. Donald Duck would look so adorable in a Jedi outfit.
