― Were you guys involved in Kingdom Hearts 3? Did you give a lot of guidance?
Conli: I’m actually working a lot on that, yeah. I’ve been very impressed with that team. They are so focused on quality. One of the things that we really, definitely with the ‘Big Hero 6′ story, we really felt that it was great opportunity to recreate a new story, as opposed to fitting into the story that was there. It gave them an opportunity to be a little more open with their storytelling. We’ve been working on it and really talking about character and how character works within the structure. It’s been a delight, other than the fact that I’m identified as Lord Xehanort now.
― [Laughs] What?
Conli: There’s a villain, apparently, in Kingdom Hearts that has the same goatee that I sport, so I have been aligned with Lord Xehanort, which I’m somewhat proud of.
― Well you don’t seem villainous at all.
Conli: Watch out for those guys.
