Tetsuya Nomura Would Like To Add Star Wars To Kingdom Hearts III


Kingdom Hearts III director Tetsuya Nomura would like to add Star Wars characters to Kingdom Hearts III, he recently shared in an interview with French Final Fantasy fansite Finaland at Japan Expo.


This is under consideration because, as you may have heard, earlier this year, Disney bought Lucasfilm, the company founded by Star Wars creator George Lucas.


Nomura replied to the question after the interviewer pointed out that Square Enix’s Yoshinori Kitase is a fan of the Star Wars franchise. Said Nomura, “We’re not going to decide it whether Kitase-san likes Star Wars or not but we’ve been talking about Star Wars itself since it became Disney’s content recently.”


“When I heard the news I was like “Wow! Wow!” Yeah, obviously it’s gonna be great if we could add it, but like I said, there are a lot of restrictions and rules by Disney so we don’t know what’s gonna happen, but yeah, we’ll see.”
