Epic Mickey’s Opening Part the Second

0

When we last left Epic Asshole Mickey, he had callously fucked up an entire world and immediately abandoned it to go back to bed. Months later, the Phantom Blot kidnapped him and sucked him through a portal or something, assumably to make him pay for his crimes. Disney’s released part II of Epic Mickey‘s opening cinematic, and while it doesn’t contain much of Mickey being an enormous dick, it does have more awkward attempted heart-stealing, and now I’m really thinking this is actually going to tie into Kingdom Hearts in some way. I mean, it just has to, right? There’s no way Disney doesn’t remember the plot of Kingdom Hearts, or would make a game with almost the exact same premise and not have the two franchises at least acknowledge each other, right? Right?
