    It’s a shame The Legend Of Korra had to follow Avatar The Last Airbender. It’s a great show but no one will ever see that because they consider ATLA to be without flaws and are always comparing both shows.

    I'm guessing Andy's neighbor hood was 10% of the Toy Box at the premiere event, and all the other areas were 20%. I know I'm late, but I've been wanting to get this off my chest.


Series director, Tetsuya Nomura, releases new artwork to celebrate Kingdom Hearts' 15th anniversary

Tetsuya Nomura, the director of the Kingdom Hearts series, has released a new official artwork to celebrate the series' 15th anniversary. This can be seen below.

Interesting notes and observations:


kingdom hearts Hd 1 5 remix 6


Kingdom Hearts Original Soundtrack Cover


Comparing with previous images with Sora sitting on a throne, for the first time he is sitting with a different attire than from his original Kingdom Hearts one (this time it’s his Kingdom Hearts III outfit). His right leg is crossed over his left, just like in the Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX one. The crown is also rather different than in the previous instances, reminiscing an actual king’s.

Now let's check the hidden details from the artwork. You can notice all the blurry effects added to the image and the intentional placement of the anniversary date and number to hide what looks to be 3 paintings and another element:

· In the first painting (upper left corner), you see a mysterious figure smiling mischievously. Does this look familiar to you?

upper left


· Next, in the upper right corner, we have the most difficult painting to decipher.

Upper right

Zootopia


· Then, in the third painting, we have this:

bottom right


It has the clearest element from all three paintings: a musical note. Maybe just a tiny Easter Egg for the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra - World Tour - that we have been experiencing as a 15th Anniversary celebration?

· Finally, we can see Sora is holding an animal on his lap, one that resembles a canid. As an interesting note, next year is the Year of the Dog in the Chinese calendar.

Bolt


Feel free to leave your speculation and other observations about what all this could mean in the comment section below!

That painting in the bottom right has the musical note, yeah, but is that a North American Robin beneath it? A Mary Poppins world, perhaps?

Similarly, there's something super-blurred out in the bottom left, behind the '1' in '15.' It just looks like a dark smudge, so it's nearly impossible to make out, but maybe that's the point… Maybe this dark smear had to be blurred to oblivion so we wouldn't recognize it as… Darth Vaderrrrr!……'s helmet.

Gosoxtim from KHInsider has noticed a Fox on Sora's lap!!!

You know what? I just thought about this: what if the fox in Sora's lap is somehow related to Ava/the Vulpeus union in X?

Better yet, what if that Fox is Ava? I had a theory that the Forteller's are Dream Eaters. And what can Dream Eaters (and Ava) do? shape shift.
