Back when I was still fairly new to the site, I used to do threads about world ideas that I personally thought would be a bad fit for Kingdom Hearts III and Kingdom Hearts in general. It was also around the time where I did this thing where I would basically abuse the font options and really dress up whatever I was saying, but I've grown out of that. But anyways, I was thinking about bringing that back (the threads, not the other thing) in order to comment on more recent ideas for worlds as well as some already confirmed for the game, but then I decided I should just clarify exactly what I believe and why I believe as it applies to new worlds in general just so that it's easier to understand my overall mentality when discussing this subject. So let me attempt to make this as simple as I can: the only real criteria I have for a new world is that it feels like a natural pick for the universe that is Kingdom Hearts. In turn, for that to happen, it has feel unnatural as well. Confused yet? I'll continue: A good idea for a world, in my opinion, is that is has to have a a fish-out-of-water scenario that correlates with the idea that Sora (or whoever the protagonist is really) is experiencing something that he would never experience on his home world, or any other world for that matter, and more importantly one that defies normal standards and presents the player with a sense of mysticism and fairy tale-esque spectacle, which can qualify for pretty much any world that's already been used in Kingdom Hearts because they all follow this standard. Every world is set in fantasy, and even if its based in the real world, it's counteracted with enough fantasy (such as a supernatural aid or by being set in a different time period with a unique culture) to make it work all the same. That's why I would be absolutely appalled if Zootopia or something similar to that would be used as a world because it misses the point entirely. There's no mysticism or spectacle in a property like that. Yeah, everybody's a talking animal but that idea in general isn't all that great on its own for one thing, and even then, it's still too close to real life. Anything too close to real life in general gets an automatic "NO" from me, but I'm sure I've made that obvious by this point. Now, I know what you're thinking: does that mean I'm against Big Hero 6 too? Well, no actually, I'm not. I do have my worries as it is still very close to real life and there could be ways of taking that too far in terms of how it's presented but as long as its done gracefully, I won't have a problem with it. Hopefully I've gotten the idea across because I really didn't want to write blocks of text when I can just try to make things easier to digest.
