For the two decades, Kingdom Hearts has entertained fans with a range of stories across numerous gaming consoles. Started in 2002, the game has people hooked on to it. Now, considering its immense popularity, Disney is reportedly in talks to convert into an animated television show for Disney+. According to entertainment journalists, Disney is said to be developing a series and not a film. 

According to two International entertainment journalists' tweet, Kingdom Hearts will be fully CGI based and not live-action.

Also, there is no clarity whether the voice actors for the main characters of the game like Sora, Roxas, Aqua or Axel will be part of the show.
