Square Enix has announced today at D23 that Big Hero 6 is coming to Kingdom Hearts III. The San Fransokyo setting in the movie will be featured in Tetsuya Nomura’s upcoming installment.
“Big Hero 6 is such a special film for me,” said film producer Ray Conli, “and we always made sure that each action sequence had a very special meaning. The themes in Kingdom Hearts and Big Hero 6 match very well. For instance there’s friendship, really important to both stories, and then of course light over darkness.”
Kingdom Hearts III will pick up where the film ended as Baymax joins Sora’s story, the series main protagonist. Kingdom Hearts III still doesn’t have a release date, but is expected to release in holiday 2017 for Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
