Streaming service Disney+ has made legendary game director Hideo Kojima's new documentary film, Connecting Worlds, available to stream on the platform as of 23rd February 2024. Kojima first revealed the Official Trailer for the documentary film in June 2023 before the Walt Disney Company picked up the project in December 2023 as its exclusive distribution partner for a global release.

According to an official press release from Kojima Productions, the documentary film was featured at the Tribeca Film Festival around the same time the official trailer debuted. Connecting Worlds gives a spotlight into the awe-inspiring mind of the "visionary mind of Hideo Kojima" from the launch of Kojima Productions to the making of the 2019 open-world action-adventure Death Stranding.

This hour-long documentary film, which is directed by Glen Milner, follows Kojima's "creative process" that takes a look at "the power and potential of video games as an art form through the work of an influential talent." As mentioned before, this overlaps the period from his shocking departure from Konami to founding his production studio, Kojima Productions, and the development of Death Stranding.

Several notable contributions from "visionary artists" are featured in the documentary film, including Chvrches, George Miller, Grimes, Woodkid, and others. Additionally, Guillermo del Toro, Nicholas Winding Refn, and Norman Reedus, for whom Kojima had collaborated on Death Stranding, will also appear in Connecting Worlds, in which Reedus compared Kojima to Willy Wonka in the trailer.

According to del Toro in the trailer, "Video gaming is an art, but the only person in charge of the orchestra is the auteur," which speaks of Kojima's influences in the gaming industry as the "first auteur of video games." Speaking of gaming, Kojima revealed the official title for his upcoming game, Death Stranding 2: On the Beach, during the PlayStation State of Play, along with a new trailer, which will be released sometime in 2025 and a live-action adaptation of Death Stranding has been announced in a collaboration between Kojima Productions and independent studio, A24.
