Disney is working on several new projects for the (in select regions) recently launched service Disney+, and it seems like one of them could potentially be a TV series based on Kingdom Hearts. There have been several sources for this, and one of them is Emre Kaya from Cinema Spot, who writes on Twitter:
"There is a #KingdomHearts series in the works at Disney+.
Disney originally wanted to make it but that didn't work out, so Square Enix was asked to create a pilot using Unreal Engine.
This series is most likely not live-action, but CG animated. They're currently casting."
Skyler Shuler from The Disney Insider also claims this is true, and tweets:
"Been tagged in Jeremys post (which is true), so here's what I know:
-Kingdom Hearts will be a Disney+ series, not a movie.
-It's animated (CG)
-Disney VO actors are expected to reprise their roles (Jim Cummings, Bill Farmer, Tony Anselmo)
All I know."
The last major release in the series was Kingdom Hearts III from last year, which was received exceptionally well from both gamers and media. The series is known for having a very intricate story, that we absolutely could see as a good fit for a TV series.
