The only information provided is that you'll have to complete the game and view its ending, as well as "fulfilled certain criteria during play".

In confirmation, Kingdom Hearts 3 director Tetsuya Nomura stated that the post-launch epilogue will contain "the biggest spoilers" for the game.

Here are Square Enix's plans for the Kingdom Hearts 3 rollout, broken down by day. It also said players will be able to enjoy all of the main game, including the standard ending, without the need for an internet connection. Update 1.01 will feature several data fixes, the Memory Archive videos, and a new epilogue that players can only see after finishing the game. "The entire development team is pouring their love for the franchise into KINGDOM HEARTS III and is striving to create a game that all players will enjoy".

The epilogue will be viewable to anyone who has finished Kingdom Hearts 3, while the secret video requires finishing the game along with various criteria that will scale by difficulty level. This is a recap of all the events in the Kingdom Hearts story up to the beginning of Kingdom Hearts 3. Odd when you consider that an epilogue is meant to bring closure to a game's ending.

However, that is the Kingdom Hearts 3 Epilogue and not the actual ending of the game.

January 31: The "secret movie" for Kingdom Hearts 3 will be released.

Square Enix says both these videos will "enhance our enjoyment of Kingdom Hearts".

In a series of tweets, Square Enix noted that a few different free game updates will come on and around launch day.
