In Topic: Bad news for animation fans

25 April 2017 - 05:29 PM

Best things Disney does animation-wise is new stuff (not counting Pixar here, they do amazing sequels). I really hate Gigantic being pushed so far. The last new thing we had from them was Moana, and it's going to be a really long period of time (Christmas 2016 to 2020) without a new IP. :( I have to admit that they have done many new things recently too. Zootopia (2015), Big Hero 6 (2014), Frozen (2013) and Wreck-it-Ralph (2012). That's 5 new IPs in 5 years. Really disappointing not having another one for 2017/18 :(

In Topic: Which Star Wars-story should feature in Kingdom Hearts and why?

Except that Tetsuya Nomura never directed Smash Bros, that was Masahiro Sakurai, so that's not the best counter-argument.

and Nomura didn't direct TWEWY either lol. He made the characters and helped with the story as a creative director, but he didn't direct the game. Also, Cloud is in Smash, and Nomura helped with his design and made an artwork to commemorate this. Again, Sora just feels natural in Smash. Just like Marvel and Star Wars in any Kingdom Hearts title. The question that remains is: When?

Put too much Star Wars in Kingdom Hearts, you undermine the importance of the other Disney Worlds featured, if you don't utilise Star Wars well enough, people will be vocal about the representation and complain about how it played second fiddle. Star Wars is just too large for its own good to be relegated into a singular world for Kingdom Hearts III, and making any compromises for it would be more of a detriment than good.

TWEWY was primarily added for two reasons. Firstly, Dream Drop Distance was a Nintendo 3DS title, TWEWY was a Nintendo DS title. Both games were for a Nintendo system so the inclusion felt far more natural. Secondly, TWEWY is a title directed by Tetsuya Nomura, just like Kingdom Hearts. Because of this, it was easier for him to add said characters into the game than any other Square Enix characters.

Just to stress, I'm not against Star Wars being in Kingdom Hearts, I'm just against it being in Kingdom Hearts III. The Keyblade War should be the primary focus of that and the worlds that Sora, Donald and Goofy should be complimentary to that over-arching plot.

I never mentioned KH3... lol I actually don't care about Star Wars or Marvel being in KH3 or not(although they could be HUGE marketing points for the game). I just want them to crossover into the series. BTW, if the worlds are just complementary, wouldn't it just be filler, like most of them have already been throughout the series? And KH has always been loyal to the original movie plots, so I would like them to give it a go asap (they could add them to UX ;) )
As for TWEWY... With your reasoning, I could argue that Sora should be in Smash Bros, it feels natural, but... It's just that TWEWY characters fitted the plot, that's all. If they do the same with Star Wars, why wouldn't people like it?

In Topic: It's been confirmed that KHIII will not be released in this year i think

We are already in FY 2018. It started on April 1st. Obviously this game will release in FY 2018 or beyond, it cannot release before that xD i think it will release in late FY 2018, like March 2018.

Let's be real here, the lore of Tron isn't that widely known or cared about for that matter. The lore of Star Wars on the other hand is a whole different beast on its own with a dedicated following. You're comparing Apple's and Oranges here. Episode VII only happened in the first place because Disney acquired the rights to the Star Wars franchise, and George Lucas was not going to make another Star Wars movie any more.

The cartoons aren't really feature films, and adding The Force Awakens seems awkward. Every world featured starts with its origin movie, why would Star Wars be any different?

yes, Tron doesn't have as many fans as Star Wars but so what? TWEWY didn't have as many fans as Final Fantasy yet they included characters in DDD. Come on let's be honest here. The whole Kingdom Hearts series is a bunch of cool fan-fiction crossovers, a bit more into the mix wouldn't hurt anyone. It won't ve canon to the original movies in any case, and I think they have done a good job in making each movies' plot into the series' storyline. They should give it a try.
