  1. I knew someone would comment on this. I know that, technically, Big Ben is the name of the bell inside the tower, but most everyone refers to the whole tower as Big Ben, even though its official name, as only of 2012, is indeed Elizabeth Tower.
  2. There have been various rumours floating around the internet recently about Disney making a Kingdom Hearts film or TV series which will apparently be a live-action/CGI crossover. Whilst I'm still sceptical about this as it's not the first time there have been such rumours and I also don't like the idea of seeing Sora being played by a real person (how will they deal with his huge feet?!) it does get me wondering what a live-action Kingdom Hearts project might look like. An easy way to start would be by looking at the real-world locations that feature in Kingdom Hearts as these could become filming locations. Here's a few below: Port Royal, Jamaica (photo from Wikipedia) Featured in KH2 and KH3 as part of The Caribbean world. Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France (photo from Britannica.com) Featured in KHDDD as part of La Cite Des Cloches Big Ben in London, England (photo from Britannica.com) Featured in KH1 as part of the Neverland world. Shibuya Crossing in Shibuya, Japan (photo from JapanTravel.com) Featured in KH3 as part of Quadratum. The name "Shibuya" hasn't been used to refer to Quadratum within the game but the location is pretty much an exact replica, down to the 109 building that Sora fights Yozora on. Shibuya has been mentioned, however, in KHDDD as the home of Neku and his friends. Additionally there are locations in Kingdom Hearts which resemble real-world places such as the following: St James Street in London, England (photo from Wikipedia) or any Victorian-era street in London really. Resembles Scala Ad Caelum in KH Missing-Link and the end of Kingdom Hearts Union Cross. Dubrovnik, Croatia (photo from Wikimapia). Resembles Scala Ad Caelum in KH Dark Road and KH3, mainly due to the use of cable cars, pale buildings and closeness to the sea. This may be a bit of a stretch though. There's lots of other examples I could mention but I think this article is long enough! Whether a KH film/TV series happens or not you can always visit these places in cosplay for a photoshoot! Sorry, I was having a lot of issues submitting this article and have ended up submitting it three times! Hopefully the admins will remove the duplicates.
  3. So whilst I did enjoy Wish and there were some great songs in it, like many people I also felt that it didn't quite live up to Disney's previous classics. However I think there's potential for it to be a great addition to a future Kingdom Hearts game due to its themes and unique animation style. The climax of the film is especially perfect for Kingdom Hearts as I've demonstrated in the image below. Plus Magnifico could spawn an intimidating Heartless which would make for a great boss battle! What do you think?
  4. I think Sora is most likely to be the one we play as in the tutorial, but Kairi could also work story-wise as we know she's starting to train under Master Aqua so the game could begin with her first training session where Aqua goes through the basics with her to see what Kairi knows.
  5. The problem with having a Union Cross manga is that it would either have to be all drawn in first person perspective or a design would have to be chosen for the player character which would probably be the boy that appears in the Union Cross opening and Young Xehanort's dreams. Either way the player character in the manga won't be able to perfectly reflect the character that most Union Cross players created, given variables like their appearance, Union and gender. The Union Cross novel already tried to do it by avoiding gendered pronouns as much as possible but it didn't quite succeed.
  6. Good question about the old mansion. Would be interesting if it turned out to be where the Master of Masters once lived or something.
  7. As much as I love Cinderella III, I'm not sure how it'd work in KH seeing as Lady Tremaine and her daughters seemingly all died back in BBS, unless someone else reverses time and changes their fate. Leroy could be a cameo character like Sparky but I wouldn't want a whole world based on that film when they haven't even given Lilo and Stitch a proper world yet. I'd quite like to see Bambi 2 become a KH world. It would be different to anything they've done so far in that Sora, Donald and Goofy would have to become woodland creatures and I think Bambi 2 would work better than Bambi 1 as it just focuses on when he's young and learning how to be brave, smart and strong to please his father. Sora and Co. can help him learn those things whilst ridding the forest of woodland-themed heartless.
  8. Sorry if someone's already posted this but does anyone know where I can safely download the KH4 trailer from? I want to use it in a video.
  9. I remember marketing for it. I believe there was some kind of McDonalds collaboration where you could win tickets to see it. Could be wrong though, it was 20 years ago. And I live in the U.K. so perhaps it was advertised more over here since it's partly set in London.
  10. The Tinkerbell movies are more like a spin-off franchise than direct-to-video sequels, but I did enjoy them. I like the fact that Terence sounds just like Roxas (as they share the same actor).
  11. Oh I forgot about Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginnings. Tarzan 2 (NOT Tarzan and Jane but the prequel story) was good too. And Lilo and Stitch: Stitch has a Glitch. I think Cinderella 3 is still my favourite though. That staircase scene with the Prince and the King is hilarious!
  12. Cinderella 3 and Bambi 2 are high quality sequels that I've watched multiple times. Milo's Return was so bad I didn't even watch it to the end...
  13. There's so many moments to choose from but I'll go with a rather unusual one where I wasn't even playing the games at the time. Back when I first played KH1 (the original PS2 version) I used to get really annoyed with how Riku and everyone else on the Island thought he was better than Sora (and in turn myself since I was controlling Sora). Then with everything that happened during KH1 I disliked Riku even more as he tried to take everything away from Sora. But at the end of the game, of course, he helps Sora to close the door and says the famous words, "Take care of her," before trapping himself in the Realm of Darkness, which led me to be rather uncertain as to how I actually felt towards him afterwards because I'd spent the whole game being irked by him and then suddenly he does that. Fast forward a few years and KH2 has just come out in Japan. I found myself watching a KH Youtube music video which unexpectedly included part of the scene from the KH2 ending where Sora and Riku return to the Destiny Islands together. Usually I hate spoilers but I was so happy to see that Riku comes home safely together with Sora that I was literally bouncing up and down with a stupid grin on my face whilst the rest of my family thought I was really weird. It wasn't until that moment that I realised I did actually care about Riku after all and he's now my favourite character!
  14. I don't think the wizard at the beginning is their dad... Their dad seems too young even if elves are long-lived. More likely he's a great, great grandfather or something. It's Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card ^_^ Thanks!!
  15. So I finally watched Onward for the first time the other day and (as I do with any new Disney film these days) immediately started wondering how it might fit into Kingdom Hearts. Feel free to disagree with me but I'm not sure having an Onward world follow the events of the film is the best way to go because either Sora, Donald and Goofy will get in the way of Ian and Barley's brotherly bonding time or they'll end up spending most of the time chasing after Ian and Barley from behind, possibly taking Mrs Lightfoot's place by teaming up with The Manticore, which could end up feeling like a rehash of their time in Arendelle culminating in a battle with the cursed dragon that will be a lot like the Darkubes boss battle from San Fransokyo. Whilst the above ideas could still work if executed well, I think it would be a lot more interesting and original if an Onward world was set before the events of the film as a prequel story. Kind of like how the San Fransokyo world works as a sequel to Big Hero 6 offering closure on the original Baymax. Here's my idea: When Ian meets someone who knew his father, they tell Ian that his father was a bold and confident person, but his mother says that his father wasn't always like that, however doesn't exactly say how he changed. We also know that his father came into possession of a wizard's staff but we never find out how he got it or how he learned to use it. Was it just a family heirloom or did he find it? These mysteries provide the perfect opportunity for Sora, Donald and Goofy to become part of the story. What if the trio landed in Onward's world when Mr Lightfoot was a self-conscious teenager and end up going on an adventure with him where he not only learns to believe in himself thanks to Sora's encouragement but also learns magic from Donald? Not only will this allow Sora and co. to play a meaningful part in a Disney story, rather than being third-wheels or replacing other characters, but it will also allow us to get to know Mr Lightfoot more which would then give more weight to the story of Onward itself. With Disney being a lot more involved in Kingdom Hearts now than they used to be, and with the San Fransokyo, Toy Box and Monstropolis worlds already featuring original stories designed to work as canon to the films they are based on, I think this could be a real possibility. Let me know what you think!
  16. Name: Aqua Tribute - This Is Me (The Greatest Showman) Category: Music videos Date Added: 01/31/2022 Submitter: Hoshiko Hikari My first Aqua tribute video, long overdue! I hope I've done justice to this incredible character. Please see my Youtube channel (same username as here) for more "Kingdom Hearts meets The Greatest Showman" videos.

  18. Happy Holidays everyone! So this video is kind of a sequel to my Million Dreams video as there's so many good songs in The Greatest Showman that I couldn't do just one. This time the focus is on Roxas and Xion as I think this song suits them really well. I've been playing around with Chroma Keyer for this video (basically the green screen effect) which I've finally learned how to use, though I've tried not to overdo it. Hope you like it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2PF-_6UA28
  19. My mind was so busy thinking about it that the day after I finished the story I got on the wrong bus and travelled in the wrong direction for 15 minutes before I noticed...
  20. I also voted for The Black Cauldron because, let's face it, the Horned King would make a terrifyingly epic Boss. Though I can imagine the Cauldron itself being a Boss too, like the Spinning Wheel Heartless in Enchanted Dominion. The Great Mouse Detective is a close second though. The only potential problem with Black Cauldron is that it involves a boy discovering a powerful, magic sword. Sora would be like, "Yeah I've already got one of those."
  21. Probably the Lucky Emblems. I spent so much time looking around for them that I started seeing Lucky Emblems in the real world as well! Ended up cheating but I found about 70% on my own.
