Quantcast

After a television movie and plenty of teasers over the past few months, THE LION GUARD made its official debut on Disney Junior last week, and along with the launch comes a whole new line of merchandise centered around the adventures of Kion, the second-born cub of Simba and Nala, and his diverse group of friends as they unite to protect the Pride Lands. While we don't have any of it here just yet, we did spot some new items at Disney Store today during a visit to the Fashion Outlets of Chicago - and Little Finley found her curiosity piqued. Take a look at some of what Disney Consumer Products is currently rolling out at retail...

With the release of Disney•Pixar's THE GOOD DINOSAUR into theaters last month, a milestone was celebrated - 20 years of Disney•Pixar animated feature films. It was November of 1995 when audiences first stepped inside of Andy's room to begin a decades-long series of adventures with Buzz Lightyear, Woody, Rex and an ever-expanding crew of toys - some familiar, some not. With TOY STORY as fresh as ever for new generations of audiences (fueled by cool shorts like the recent TOY STORY THAT TIME FORGOT), Disney Consumer Products has partnered with Mattel for a new collection of 20th Anniversary Toys - one of which (Andy's Room Buddies 7-Pack Figure Gift Set) arrived here at Rock Father HQ in a surprise box - packed alongside THE GOOD DINOSAUR Galloping Butch Figure by TOMY... Pixar's past and present in figure form.

The Force Awakens... in the Produce Section

The Power of The Force is everywhere. In fact, The Force Awakens in surprising places everyday, the latest of which is the produce section of your local retailer. Disney Consumer Products (DCP) just dropped the curtain on healthy STAR WARS branded fruit and veggie offerings to celebrate the addition of Lucasfilm to The Walt Disney Company’s Healthy Living Commitment. Just in time for the December release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, families can enjoy Star Wars-themed bagged apples by Sage, citrus fruit by Dayka Hackett, carrots by Kern Ridge and grapes with Yoda-themed packaging by Four Star, which all meet nutritional guidelines put in place by The Walt Disney Company.

I won't apologize for it, but if you're not a STAR WARS fan, you may feel overwhelmed by the amount of coverage coming at you from a galaxy far, far away. As we head toward #ForceFriday, (there's a good chance you've seen my daily Force Friday Countdown posts) the SW news keeps coming in faster, and in bigger numbers. Just-into Rock Father HQ is word from Disney Consumer Products that there will be a "Global Unboxing Event" that will be presented "New Year's Eve style" and will feature some of the most popular YouTubers in the World. Get ready, because THE FORCE AWAKENS Globally next week. Here's a preview...

Visitors to next month's D23 Expo in Anaheim had best bring a few extra bucks, and an extra suitcase. The folks at Disney Store are rolling out some new products that are being previewed at the show - and offered for sale for the first time ever! There's new offerings from the Disney Fairytale Designer Collection, TOY STORY 20th Anniversary, Tsum Tsum, ABC's ONCE UPON A TIME, and yes, my favorite - STAR WARS. Check out a sneak-preview below!

Toys are about to enter a whole new realm, and according to Disney Consumer Products (DCP), that new "evolution of play" will be PLAYMATION - "where digital gets physical and imagination becomes real." This new system of toys and wearables will be launching this Fall, using smart technology to "inspire kids to run around and use their imaginations, as they become the hero or heroine of stories from across The Walt Disney Company." Playmation will launch with MARVEL's AVENGERS, with STAR WARS to follow in 2016, and sets based Walt Disney Animation Studios' FROZEN slated for 2017. If that plan says anything, it's that Disney and Hasbro are expecting this to be BIG.
