Post by: Auron10124 on July 18, 2010, 08:42:20 AM
i would love to see a movie based off of kingdom hearts, my most loved video game in all the world! if they can make an amazing live action movie of prince of persia, then they can make kingdom hearts

While this would be pretty cool, I think the game is based too much off of pre-existing movies to gain its own movie.  If they took out the Disney element, so it would just be Sora on a journey to save the world from the Heartless and such, then it might be ok, but that kinda removes what was so great about the game.  Movies based off of games are always hard to envision until they're actually being made, but I'm gonna have to say that a movie version of Kingdom Hearts may be a bad idea.  Still a great game, though, one of the best I've ever played.

It might be cool.  They would pretty much have to remove most of the Disney characters and what not in order for it to work.

THEY SHOULD NEVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES MAKE A MOVIE BASED OFF A GAME OR A GAME BASED OFF A MOVIE!!!

I had to put that in all caps to express just how important this point is. It won't stop people from trying to make movies like this, but it ALWAYS flops.

Look as much as i agree usual game movies flop. But its only because the movie makers SUCK. We need actual gamers to make a movie. like get a movie director to get a bunch of passionate gamers to make the movie.

This does not seem like a good idea to me because when movies are made from games there are always expectations that are not met. If there were good people working on it the movie MAY be okay but it is doubtful.... Just leave game games

As said, most of the Disney elements would have to be removed for this to become a legalized movie. Only exception, I would see, is if Disney was given rights or otherwise was the producer of the movie, kinda like with the most recent Prince of Persia movie, but even then, would it be a good movie? I think not; Disney movies aren't bad, but they have a bad time of living up to all the expectations of fans. Not to mention, even if they decide to keep everything from the game, they'd still have to cut out parts to keep it under 90 minutes, which would just ruin everything.

I don't really know if passionate gamers would want to make a movie.  There are as few people as passionate about Zelda as I am, yet I would never make a movie about it.  Sure, the passionate gamers would be able to write a better script and probably cast better actors than the normal movie studios, but I don't think it would ever be quite right.  The best thing to do is to leave all good video games as the good video games they are.

I'm going to have to agree with everyone who says it would flop. Though if it were to happen I'd much rather it be animated than live-action. I could see Pixar makign a somewhat well animated movie out of it and it would probably be pretty easy to get Disney to agree to rights. It'd be pretty interesting if you ask me.

and thats the problem. There's not enough of a following to put tons of money into producing a good movie about a game so they will always have bad film-makers. Movies about games are simply made to make some money.

Dood, you do not insult the cuteness that is Leelee by accusing her of having the manparts!

Hmm, a kingdom hearts movie in Live action is just to iffy. Half the characters are form Disney, and are shaped in a way you couldn't use a live actor for, so you'd use CGI (Mickey for example, or Jack skeleton their body structure just can't be mimiced by an actor in makeup) and if your using heavy CGI anyway, why make it live action, the freedom you have when using only voice actors is alot greater. I think it could work as a cartoon/CGI thing..NOT as a live action movie.

As a somewhat stand-alone franchise when compared to the games, I have to say I enjoy the Resident Evil movies quite a bit. The third, Extinction, was a bit...bleh. Maybe because the environments weren't familiar in any way, but they are starting to mirror the games a little by bringing Tricell and various characters.

Basically, even though the movies only vaguely use characters, environments and overall story, I personally think they've done pretty well. Just got Afterlife to wait for, which I think is the last one.

Post by: andrewstodden on July 26, 2010, 06:50:43 AM
In my opion it would be to hard to make a movie based off of the Kingdom of Heats, since there tons of disney characters, Final Fantasy characters and Pirates of the Caribeean characters.  And they would have to rewrite basically all of the the disney movies. I would think it would to much hard work to make a movie like this.


Title: Re: Kingdom hearts movie?
Post by: Leelee720 on July 26, 2010, 08:34:18 AM
It is because of the Disney aspect, and the fact that these classic Disney movies would need to be rewritten, that a movie based on Kingdom Hearts should either have no Disney element at all or should not be made.  A lot of work would have to be done on a script, but it is possible to eliminate the Disney part of the story and still have a decent plot that makes sense.  So basically it could be about Sora, who lives on Destiny Islands and wonders what else is out there, who visits other, original worlds and saves them from the Heartless.  The writers could take out all of the Disney characters and worlds and the Final Fantasy characters. 

The downside to this, however, is that with Disney gone, Kingdom Hearts just isn't that cool.  The reason I bought the game was because I wanted to play in the various Disney worlds.  The movie could either have Disney rewrites in them and be kinda bad, or have a decent original story and no reason to see the movie. 

Yeah, overall, I still say bad idea.

Lol, you're funny, and thank you for defending me.

That really has nothing to do with anything.  Sure, Disney could have a hand in it, but a bunch of Disney movie rewrites?  Maybe I'm the only one, but I don't wanna watch that at all.

I grew out of Disney. And yes, I did watch movies when I was a kid and a lot of them weren't Disney films. I guess I'd rather watch a movie than a musical.

Now explain how it's wrong not to like Disney?

You have to at least watch Pirates of the Caribbean or Prince of Persia! They're both Walt Disney Pictures productions and no spontaneous synchronised-dancing/singing in sight.

And random trivia, Captain Jack Sparrow from PotC is in Kingdom Hearts II. So it's not just classic Disney characters featured.

Title: Re: Kingdom hearts movie?
Post by: Omgarrett on August 30, 2010, 09:16:04 AM
This could, in theory, work. The biggest problem really is that, so far the only videogame-based movie I've actually enjoyed watching so far was Prince of Persia, mostly because they just seemed to implement some ideas in a good way rather than going "WE MUST PUT AS MANY CHARACTERS IN AS POSSIBLE AND RIP SCENES FROM THE GAME! WHO CARES ABOUT ACTING! JUST FIND SOMEONE THAT KINDA HAS THE SAME HAIR, WE'LL MAKE A ROMANTIC COMEDY AND  IT WILL BE AWESOME!", followed by re-writing every single character's personality, behaviour and randomly changing someone into a hockey player *cough* King of Fighters *cough*.

In the end it really just depends on if it's written right, performed right, and not having Sora be played by Samuel L. Jackson or something like that. Although that does sound delightful.

To me its bad i dea to make live because think about it. If they make it live. Donald and Goofy gonna have to be best CG ever. Ive seen CG on Character and i was not impress at all. They will have to get a really good art director and a very good director period. All of these video game movies needs to stop. They are getting bad each year.

Kingdom Hearts just could not be a movie, it would suck and would turn me off from the games even though I really like them. But yes, if they got rid of the Disney element it would be nearly movie material. I liked the game, but the Disney worlds were my least favorite parts of the game, and that was most of the parts.

Also since a lot of the worlds follow disney storylines too I would love to see them  follow some f the Final Fantasy Storylines.

As I mentioned over in my new thread, I'd think this series would be better as an anime or animated show instead of a film. But, then again, that's just me.

I agree with the above poster. It is better animated than live. The actors would kill the series just as fast as the actors killed DBZ.

I wonder what direction the movie would go in if they did make one. What would the story line be? They've already explained everything through out the games. It could be like how they did the .hack//Trilogy movie and make it where it focuses on the relation ship between two characters (In this case Sora and Kairi?), or it could be like in Final Fantasy Advent Children where it kinda has a whats happened to them afterwords kind of thing and they have one last battle then end the series there. Who knows?
