Storyline

Sora's world is shattered when a violent storm hits his home, and is seperated from his two closest friends. The storm scatters the three to unknown worlds. At the same time, there is turmoil in the Disney Castle. King Mickey is missing, and Court Wizard Donald and Captain Goofy are out to find him. On their travels they meet Sora, on his own search for his lost friends. The three are told of ominous creatures called Heartless, being without hearts derived from an unknown dimension and are the ones responsible for the devastating storm. The Disney villians, enticed by the power of darkness, manipulate the Darkness to help them gather the princesses of heart, who are needed to open a mysterious final door. Upon discovering the link between the Heartless, the storm, and the disappearance of King Mickey, Sora, Donald, and Goofy join forces and help familiar Disney heroes to save their worlds from the Heartless.

Did You Know?

Trivia

The English version of the game's theme song, "Simple and Clean", uses a different melody for the chorus than the Japanese version. However, the original melody can still be heard in the U.S. version during the instrumental played over the credits sequence. See more »

Goofs

In Hollow Bastion, right after you defeat the Maleficent Dragon and before you fight Riku/Ansem, during the movie scene where Sora sees Kairi on the ground in front of the keyhole in the hall containing the Princesses of Heart, Sora lifts Kairi and shakes her up and down to wake her up. The pendant on Kairi's necklace stays suspended in the air when he shakes her until the shot changes. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Sora: [narrating] I've been having these weird thoughts lately... like is any of this for real or not?
See more »

Crazy Credits

A special bonus movie can be seen after the whole credits, but it can be only accessed if you seal all keyholes, get all 99 dalmatians, and complete the Hades Cup. See more »

Alternate Versions

Some scenes in the game will be different if you complete levels in different sequences.
  • If you defeat Maleficent before defeating Cerberus in the Olympus Coliseum, she will not appear in the cut-scene with Hades.
  • If you complete Hollow Bastion before Monstro, Riku will not help you in the battle against Parasite Cage or have as much dialogue with Sora.
  • If Deep Jungle is completed before Wonderland's keyhole is sealed, Snow White will appear in the scene with the villains (instead of Alice).

Embrace the Magic
16 January 2010 | by The_Fifth_EchoSee all my reviews

Kingdom Hearts, I'm saying this straight out, it is one of the best video games ever created. Video Games don't get much better than this, it is absolutely magical. The kind of magic you got from Disney 50 years ago with movies like Bambi or Snow White. The imagery is way ahead for its time. (2002) If you don't like this game, I have no clue what to say to you expect good luck ever liking a video game.

This movie is enchanting to the point you want the characters to be real. I mean it is quite an addicting game. It soothes your mind and takes all the problems you have on the real world. I give this movie a 10/10. I would rate it way higher if I could.
