It’s been a long time coming, and even now, we’re still a solid seven months away from Kingdom Hearts III, which will mark the first mainline entry in the long-running action-RPG franchise since 2005’s Kingdom Hearts II. Sure, there were countless spin-offs in the time since then — both good and bad — but this one promises to be a real current-gen evolution of the games we’ve grown to live in the 15-plus years since its inception.

Of course, with this being a Kingdom Hearts game, at least half of the appeal is being able to explore the worlds of our favorite Disney films. In the trailers so far, we’ve seen glimpses of Toy Story, Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph, Pirates of the Caribbean, and more. However, there is one other world that we’ll be catching a glimpse of soon, as teased by the game’s director Tetsuya Nomura.

In an interview in Dengeki PlayStation (which was translated and recapped by KH Insider), Nomura states that he thinks they will be able to show footage from the long-awaited Big Hero 6 world “next time.” Sadly, we have no way of knowing when “next time” will be. Call it a hunch, but I think it’s highly likely that it’ll be BEFORE the game’s January release next year — but that’s just speculation (and good God, I hope you can read the sarcasm).

Big Hero 6 was an animated film that hit theaters back in 2014. It received an Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film in 2015, and went on to spawn a comic series and an animated TV series, which currently airs on Disney Channel. Given the fans behind this one, including it feels like a given.
