Now Playing: Kingdom Hearts III - 90 Years of Mickey Mouse Official San Diego Comic-Con Trailer

What would a Final Fantasy and Disney crossover be without the main mouse himself? In a new Kingdom Hearts III trailer revealed at SDCC 2018, we got to see all the wonderful contributions Mickey Mouse has made to the story in celebration of his 90th anniversary.

For Kingdom Hearts, Mickey plays a key role as king and travels to other worlds to defeat the darkness. But his royalty and leadership aren't exactly where his actual story begins in the series.

Mickey's debut was in the short Plane Crazy as part of the short film Steamboat Willie in 1928. He was created as a replacement for Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, a character created by Charles Mintz and owned by Universal. A deal went sour with Mintz and Disney lost many of his artists in the process, but Disney then made sure to own the rights to every character created from that point forward.

Mickey's start in the Kingdom Hearts series plays off his appearance in Steamboat Willie--Mickey began as a ship's hand to Pete in the Timeless River, and then went on to become a student under Yen Sid. He eventually becomes the chosen keyblade master under the Realm of Darkness, but chooses to follow the light.

King Mickey's role is also key in the story with Master Xehanort. He was the first to discover the threat of the heartless and create the Gummi Ship to travel between worlds. Since the beginning of the series in 2002, Mickey has been seen and played a major role in every single Kingdom Hearts title.
