Hey there everyone, how's it going!?

Boy, has it been a while since I made a topic here! But well, considering that we've all played Kingdom Hearts III by now and now that we have a slew of new things to dissect and analyze upon, I wanted to make this topic to discuss about what's in store next for the future of the series! 

After the Epilogue and Secret Movie of the game, and throughout the course of the game as well, it was evident that "The Lost Masters" would be something that would channel into the next saga, since Union X is basically setting up what comes next! Now, my question here is, now that Xehanort is done for, I wonder what's in store for Luxu and the Master Of Masters and the rest of the Foretellers? And what of Ava's fate? Is she the mystery girl that Lea and Isa are trying to save? Or is she simply the only Foreteller that wasn't able to come back? And what is the ambition of the Master Of Masters? Does he seek Kingdom Hearts for ultimate power? Or is he simply doing all of this out of a sheer sense of fun? There's no telling because of the way he acts! What is clear is that these characters will be very important in the next saga, so I'm intrigued to see where the series will go from here!

What do you all think? What would you think would be the next step in the series?

To start off, I think that the next Kingdom Hearts game has the potential to be one of the best, if not, the best Kingdom Hearts game yet.  Since it will be the start of a new saga, it will not be held down by everything that came before it.  It can start over.  That's why Kingdom Hearts 1 is my favorite Kingdom Hearts game.  It wasn't held back by previously established lore and years of setup, so it could do whatever it wanted, and what it did was amazing.  The gameplay doesn't hold up as well as later games, but that's because it was still finding itself gameplay wise.  But now, with the improved gameplay of the Kingdom Hearts series plus being able to start over with a fresh, new story, the next Kingdom Hearts game could be the best game yet and could become my new favorite, which I didn't think would ever be possible.

I think that we will see Kairi start to become the heroine everyone wanted her to be in Kingdom Hearts III.  While a lot of people thought that Kairi wasn't handled well in Kingdom Hearts III, it seems to me that Nomura wanted her to still be a newbie in that game, since she only just learned how to use the Keyblade and all (as explained in Jiminy's Journal), which is why he handled her the way that he did.  She still wasn't handled perfectly, but I thought that she was handled well enough to fit the role Nomura wanted her to fill.  Plus, it's not like Kairi did nothing.  She not only kept Sora from dying, allowing Sora to save the rest of the guardians of light, but also helped the guardians of light fight several armies of darkness and a second Keyblade War as her first mission ever as a Keyblade wielder (even if the game didn't show much of what she was doing).  However, now we can see Kairi actually be the person she wanted to be in Kingdom Hearts III, someone who could protect Sora.  If Riku is in another world, he had to have gotten there somehow.  My guess is that he went looking for Sora, and, since Kairi is no longer a person who would sit around and wait for Riku to rescue Sora, I'm sure she is going to be searching for him too.  Does that mean that she is also in another world like Sora and Riku are, or is she going to have to save both of them?  However, no matter what happens, I'm sure we will get to see Kairi become a talented Keyblade wielder, which I can't wait to see.

It's possible that Ava is the mystery girl, but I think it's unlikely.  We know thanks to the Secret Reports that Xigbar/Luxu was the one who set the mystery girl free, but in the Epilogue, he looked around at the Foretellers and said, "I guess Ava didn't make it after all."  It sounded as though he expected her to appear with the other Foretellers, and since he saw who the mystery girl was, I think it is more likely she is Skuld.  On the other hand, we don't quite know what Luxu meant by, "I guess Ava didn't make it after all."  Maybe she was the mystery girl and it was at the moment that she was set free that Luxu told her what was to come, but she ended up not showing up when he told her to.  I think that is less likely, but I still think it could be a possibility.  If that mystery girl is Skuld like I think she is, then I have no idea what happened to Ava, but, thanks to interviews, it does sound like she will return to the Foretellers' ranks, so she must be out there somewhere.  The question is: where?

As for what's in the box, we were told by Luxord that the box contains "hope".  But hope for whom?  What kind of hope?  We do know that whatever is in there was enough to shock Luxu in Back Cover though.

I don't know what the Master of Masters could possibly want.  To me, nothing can top what happened in Kingdom Hearts III: a second Keyblade War to forge the X-Blade, which is the only thing that can control Kingdom Hearts.  What could top that?  But if all of that was just to prepare for the Master of Masters' plan, what more could he possibly want?  I guess we will have to wait and see.

That is true! The next saga can be a fresh start for Nomura to play around with some insane concepts, which I'm sure he'll do! I'm excited to see how he'll further expand upon the gameplay and the story and everything! It's always wonderful to see how Nomura and his team execute their vision!

As for Kairi, I did feel as though she was lacking severe screentime, but she was doing her best to contribute to the battle at hand. Yes, she was used as a damsel in distress again, which is probably the main reason people are so mad about her, but honestly, Kairi is a character that is continuing to grow. We already have Sora and Riku as well developed characters, and now, we can have Kairi have her time to shine! Hopefully you're right and Nomura gives her some more development moving forward.

And well, regarding Ava, this is all still a mystery to me. Also something to keep in mind is that in the Final World, the mystery girl said something along the lines of: "He is not himself, if he noticed my absence, he would surely worry." So it may have been Strelitzia talking? Lauriam was not himself, and when Sora defeated him, he said that it was all coming back to him, his purpose for being. So maybe Strelitzia is another name we can throw in the hat? She could be important for the next saga as well!

It kills me that we never got to see what was in the Box. But since Luxord said hope, then it must be something benevolent? Or maybe Luxu was just lying to get Luxord off his back?

And honestly, the Master Of Masters is a tricky one to decipher. One never really knows what to expect of him. xD

I hope Kairi will have her own adventure in a future game. Mostly, I really hope she and Sora will reunite and finally be together.

Yessss, same here! That'd be awesome!

I too felt that Kairi was lacking severe screentime.  However, I think her lack of screentime is really part of a bigger issue that if you were a character whose name wasn't Sora, Donald, or Goofy, you got next to no screentime.

Kairi becoming a damsel again didn't bother me that much because it was made pretty clear from the beginning of the game that Sora was going to sacrifice himself to save Kairi.  I think that the main reason people are upset about Kairi is that we didn't get to see her do anything and she didn't even try to fight back when Xemnas kidnapped her.  I agree that these are issues, but I didn't think it ruined Kairi or anything like that.  I think that she did pretty well for herself, all things considered, especially since Yen Sid was basically like, "Now that you know the basics of how to use a Keyblade, go fight a war."

I actually think there are two mystery girls.  The star I think is Strelitzia, but I think she is a different person than Subject X.  I think that Subject X is Skuld.  I think that the star is Strelitzia for the reason you brought up.  I don't know who else she could have been talking about besides Lauriam.  However, since Strelitzia never became one of the Union Leaders, I think that rules her out as Subject X since Subject X was talking about how all she remembered was four friends and a key.  To me, "four friends and key" means she remembers the other four Union Leaders and that she could wield a Keyblade.  However, I could be wrong.

Yeah, and well, we still have a chance to see Kairi develop a lot more, and hopefully the next saga will give her some much deserved development! She's already greatly developed in some parts, but I hope she's more rounded out come Kingdom Hearts IV.

Huh, wow, that actually does make a lot of sense when I think about it! So that would mean that Strelitzia and Skuld are going to be important heading into the future, as Lauriam is still alive, or rather, he's been restored to his human form. And Lea and Isa are still in search of Subject X, which we can then assume to be Skuld. Hmm, this is most interesting!

I'm not sure where things will go from here, but I'm very excited to see more of the Master of Masters. He's such an enigmatic and charismatic villain. It will be interesting to see what his plans are.

Yes, I'm very happy and excited that the figure in the secret ending was indeed the Master Of Masters. Getting to see more of him in the next saga will definitely be a treat!
