Disney Retells Kingdom Hearts III Using Emoji

The benefit of using emojis is being able to condense complete sentences into easy-to-decipher symbols (assuming you’re not an out-of-touch old fogie like me). Can they work the same wonders for Kingdom Hearts’ complicated narrative? Disney puts that idea to the test by producing a short video titled "A Look at Kingdom Hearts III: As Told Through Emoji" that is exactly as it sounds. 


The 4-minute short shrinks the epic scope of the adventure down to the size of a phone screen. It cleverly translates key moments into bouncing heads, message bubbles, and commendable use of the calendar. As someone who’s played a fair amount of Kingdom Hearts III, the video does a solid job of getting general story points across and is entertaining to boot. 


Disney begins by summarizing the intro of the first game before delving into an abridged retelling of Kingdom Hearts III’s first half. This means some light spoilers lie ahead in terms of when Sora encounters the various Disney/Pixar worlds and why. If you haven’t played the game and want to be surprised on that front, you’ll probably want to avoid this video. Everyone else can check it out below. 



Kingdom Hearts III is available now on PS4 and Xbox One. What did you think of the video? Share your thoughts in the comments!
