SQUARE ENIX and Disney Interactive today announced that the beloved characters and world of Walt Disney Animation Studios? Academy Award-winning film Big Hero 6 will make their debut in the ever-expanding narrative of KINGDOM HEARTS III.

The much-anticipated addition to the KINGDOM HEARTS franchise will take Sora and a cast of Disney companions to the urban setting of San Fransokyo, home of lovable robot Baymax, continuing the events of the animated film.

At D23 Expo 2015, Academy Award-winning producer Roy Conli delighted fans with the announcement that Big Hero 6 characters will be an integral part of KINGDOM HEARTS III. In a video message for D23 attendees, Conli draws parallels between core elements of the animated film and the overarching KINGDOM HEARTS story, remarking: ?Big Hero 6 is such a special film for me – 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.?
