Square Enix released a new trailer for Kingdom Hearts 3 today at the D23 Expo in Japan, showing off a new Monsters Inc.-inspired world and new gameplay. The publisher also offered a preview of brand-new Kingdom Hearts 3 music from singer Hikaru Utada.

Kingdom Hearts 3’s journey to the world of Monsters Inc. means a fresh, furry look for our heroes, Sora, Donald and Goofy. There’s also more footage of Sora teaming up with the Toy Story crew, as well as appearances from Rapunzel and Flynn Rider from Tangled and Ariel from The Little Mermaid, who shows up as a summon. Kingdom Hearts regulars like Riku, Vanitas and Marluxia also pop up.

In addition to new Kingdom Hearts 3 footage, Square Enix also released a video featuring the game’s theme song, “Don’t Think Twice” by Hikaru Utada. You can listen to Utada’s new tune below.

Kingdom Hearts 3 is scheduled to arrive on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One sometime in 2018.
