    Is Johnny Depp voicing himself?

      No need to get through Chain of Memories. The Playstation Kingdom Hearts is just so much better than the Game Boy Advance game. I was hoping the game would come out before my grandson's birthday on March 25th. I can see what I will be doing come Spring and Summer. I will be playing Kingdom Hearts 2 with my grandson. He helps me out on the hard moves. I read the book and keep us on track. It's a joint effort. We played the last game over and over again. I just loved the animation. The first time I played, I thought, "don't these heartless ever go away". As I played the game, I actually loved defeating all the different heartless and the bosses. I actually got good enough to play the game through from beginning to end by myself. Bring on the sequel. Hopefully it's better than the first.

        Wait... Chicken Little?!

        First I've heard about him being in the game... is this an addition to the US release?

          Well, the problem is, the GBA game is Kingdom Hearts 1.5. It's not supposed to be a smaller version of the original, but a story the leads us into 2.

          Though, I do know there will be some exposition showing what happened in Chain of Memories in the cinemas of KH2.

            Yeah, supposedly, if you didn't play the GBA game, you're gonna be clueless to the story, and the first several hours will just be a mess...

            ARGGHH, I hate those card games!

              Nope, he was in the Japanese version as well(in fact, the movie itself came out in Japan after KH2 was released). He's the first of the summons you get in the game, the others being Genie, Stitch and Peter Pan(with Tink)

                So can anyone who has played Chain of Memories fill us in on the basic plot? There is no way we will have played it by the time KH2 comes out and I frankly don't have the patience for it. Is there a synopsis online somewhere so we won't be so lost?

                    Oh snap.... 1up just hinted at an American release of the Kingdom Hearts movie. Of course, that could be a decade from now so don't get your hopes too high )

We've put together a handy chart of whose voices to look forward to hearing in the game. Take a good look at the list, as some of the voices you see here will also appear in a highly-anticipated Square Enix release coming soon...on DVD. Kingdom Hearts II is scheduled to ship on March 28, 2006.

                      Cant wait! I imagine the Euro release will be about the same time.
                      I'd have thought it the voice acting that causes the delay between the Japanese and English versions,
                      but it's done to such a high standard I don't mind!

                      So will Depp, Keira and Geoffrey Rush be on board?
                      Probably not, but I'd be willing to bet on great sound-a-likes.
                      Will Herc, Simba, Belle and any other Dis characters have original actors?
                      And will Dan Castenella return as Genie?
                      Can't wait! Can't wait!

                      :yea: :yea: :yea:

                        I do not think that i am going to worry about not having beaten Chain of Memories. I played it about 1/2 way through. It was about a 3 on a scale of 10, with the Original kingdom Hearts being a 10.

                        I can't believe that succes in Kingdom Hearts 2, will depend on sucess in Chain of Memories, or the original Kingdom Hearts, for that matter.

                        Beating the game was fun, but even if you never reach the end or do everything, the game is challenging, fun, interesting, and the animation is wonderful.

                        It's funny, because we happened upon the original, by chance at a local Toys R Us, while buying a Game Cube and an Animal Crossing game.

                          No, they're talking about Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children, not a KH movie.

                            No, in Japan, after KH came out, they got a CGI movie that expanded on the story. Americans never got it. However, it looks like we'll be getting that movie pretty soon.

                            Why would these actors be the voices in FF7: Advent Children? They aren't even related to the story except for a handful of characters.
