Kingdom Hearts fans now have two possible things to watch out for: a revival of a canned Kingdom Hearts TV show and a Jungle Book world for Kingdom Hearts 3.
Rumors have been emerging about the much-awaited 3rd installment in the Kingdom Hearts franchise - the Kingdom Hearts 3. The possible delay in the Kingdom Hearts release date due to several factors including the creation of new worlds; the conflicts between the game developers and Disney; reviving of a canned Kingdom Hearts TV show and a Jungle Book world for KH3.
Parent Herald wrote about the likelihood of a Kingdom Hearts TV show with an added Disney world in it. Filmmaker Kevin Munroe has disclosed with KH Insider some images of the screenplay he made in 2004 for the canned Kingdom Hearts TV show which apparently focuses on The Jungle Book world titled “Man’s Red Fire.” The script obviously shows that it is an adaptation of the Square Enix famous video game.
The Jungle Book, according to The Bitbag, was supposed to be included in the playstation portable title, "Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep" but was removed for the final game. However, it can still be accessed through cheat codes.
With the upcoming release of Disney’s live-action remake “Jungle Book” in April this year, will the worlds of Kingdom Hearts and The Jungle Book could finally unite in Kingdom Hearts 3? What an excellent way to build up excitement for both franchises don’t you think?
Although no confirmation yet for the rumors, all we know is that Kingdom Hearts 3 is surely happening. Let’s just keep our fingers crossed that a Kingdom Hearts TV show and/or a Jungle Book world for KH3 will be in the horizon!
