Not to burst anyone's bubble but considering the fact that we have only seen two worlds so far and barely three cutscene snippets -- given Square's record, "final" dangerously sounds like the final bit before they return to a two year hiatus postponing any planned winter announcements until E3 2019...
But seriously, given the infuriatingly slow pace of Unchained / Union Cross, which they probably intend to finish before the release of KHIII, it will take until 2018 to even catch up with the Japanese version and there is no clear conclusion to the plot in any way...
So, if this is any indication, a late 2019 release sounds plausible if they update Chi to a more climactic conclusion in 2018. Maybe some updates for the PS4 collections and then full promotion in 2019 maybe a delay until 2020.
At this point, I am not very optimistic...
Nevertheless, the new trailer looks stunning. They put a lot of effort into the Disney characters, you can tell they are working with Disney Animation to perfect the looks. Sora looks incredible now too, I am glad they used 0.2 as a playground to perfect the models. If the new Chi medal renders are an indication, I am excited to see the final scenes. Ansem etc. need some more work, though...
It's clear that they don't care if we catch up to jp or not, 2.8 is proof of that.
Well now the whole Lea being a keyblade welder makes more since, Merlin has some hyperbolic time chamber. They said that he and the fairies would help him with their magic somehow but they never went into detail.
I've been sitting on this theory for a while now and I was going to wait until the international 1st-anniversary event to say something, but the recent trailer made me want to do it now. My theory is that the people in the sketch will be the new Union leaders to replace the Foretellers. The thought randomly came into my head when I was watching a UX stream, and I was like "How will Unions work with the Foretellers being 'dead'? " and then I remembered the sketch and that there were five people in it, and that's the exact number of Unions/foretellers there are. Given the recent trailer, I'm pretty sure this is the case because of the new title that it was given. As for who the other two might be.... I have an experimental theory that it might be Kairi and Lea, but that theory is very experimental like I said, so I'll wait before I share it, but it has something to do with present day Maleficent being in UX and KH3.

I heard Bleach and I had to say something
The Organisation 13 reminds me a lot of the Akatsuki from Naruto. Also the Sora, Kairi and Riku dynamic is similar to Team 7 from Naruto
Sora=Naruto, the happy go lucky kid who is loved by everyone
Riku=Sasuke. Both fall into darkness and are rivals of the MC
Kairi=Sakura since they are the only female of the group, but Sakura is way more useful than Kairi lol.
I feel a serious KH anime would work-like an adaptation of the KH manga, in the shounen genre of course. A cartoon like the one Seth was working on may not cut it for me personally unless it takes itself seriously.
Yeah, except Riku gets a clue a whole lot quicker than Sasuke does. I don't even watch Naruto and I still know this, lol. And to be fair, the plots didn't allow enough involvement from Kairi, so looks like KH3 will be the true test of that. X)"
Not really, kairi is way more helpful than Sakura. While kairi hasn't done a lot the quality of the things she's done are greater. Saving Sora, killing some heartless, reuniting Sora and Riku, Saving Sora and Riku from the realm of darkness.

It's MoM and Luxu, part of the lost page says that the one who bears the sigil is the traitor and guess who has the sigil:
MoM annnd Luxu.
(skip to 17:55)
(skip to 3:40)
There is also menacing music playing in the background of the second Case of Luxu. Luxu and the MoM knew that the world would burn and Luxu was given the role that would let him survive and they probably could have done something to stop it, but they didn't and they didn't tell the others any of this. MoM gave them roles they would ultimately end the world, which is traitorous, but I feel this is more so Luxu's fault, but I haven't figured out why yet. Nomura also said these two are similar but Luxu is the boring one.

How would that be any better?
The time travel "nonsense" isn't really that big a deal.
It would feel a lot more cohesive and less of it was on somebody's Lunch napkin. The book is a lot easier to understand and could be used as the plot point for the next saga because of the problems it caused and that much knowledge shouldn't be just left out there for anybody to find.
A post on the kingdom hearts subreddit was made detailing rumors of kh3 via the twitter of a spanish news writer.
Here is the post verbatim, credits to reddit user MaxialstarOA:
Hello guys, first of all, I want you to take this information with grain of salt because it might just be fake, but this dude has claimed very true things and he's a news writer in a Spanish website, so I think we should at least hear him:
Release date is targetted NOW to March 2018, it could be delayed if there are problems in development.
Development team is using assets always subject to change.
As Nomura stated, there're certain playable zones and the game should be fully playable in August.
They're working on redoing PS2 assets (possibly for returning worlds).
The zones already developt for KH3 look very, VERY beautiful.
When a new build is done and Nomura checks it, he wants it to be better in certain aspects. He wants the game to have very good quality standards.
KH3 is a very challenging development because of all the content they have to work: Levels, Animations, Models, ... and it's a very slow process.
Completely fake, March is too soon since Nomura said that there are worlds they haven't even touched yet and making the worlds for 3 takes time. The rest of these statements are general things anybody can guess or say. The amount of things we've seen doesn't even come close to the amount of things we were shown for 0.2 and that was a smaller game. Kh3 is a long time away from getting a release date, we would need to get a release date this March for it to release March 2017.
