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. Disney voiceover artists Jim Cummings, Bill Farmer (Goofy), Tony Anselmo (Donald) might reprise their roles. However, it is still uncertain that whether the series will follow the story of the video games or a new concept will be sketched out. 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.
There is a #KingdomHearts series in the works at Disney+.
Disney originally wanted to make it but that didn't work out, so Square Enix was asked to create a pilot using Unreal Engine.
