The first few installments on the Stitch Crashes Disney have faced mixed reviews. However, next month’s design is amazing! Check out the latest pictures here.
Last year, Disney featured an adorable Minnie Main Street Merchandise monthly series. These sets were based on Disney attractions. They were super popular, especially the Fireworks Finale set shown below!
Then, at the start of 2021, Disney announced a brand new Stitch monthly series. They are inspired by the original Lilo & Stitch film trailers from 2002 featuring Stitch crashing classic Disney film scenes with each release celebrating a treasured Disney film. Check out the previously released sets and a sneak peek for the next installment.
Beauty and the Beast
This year, January kicked off the collection with Stitch crashing Beauty and the Beast‘s classic 1991 movie. Project 626 received a makeover featuring stained glass and the famous red rose from the West Wing.
The all-over silk fabric here fit with the Beauty and the Beast theming, and the rose is so cute. Admittedly though, this set is not entirely what I was expecting.
Lady and the Tramp
Next, in February, shopDisney released The Lady and the Tramp set. The Lady and the Tramp is a beloved classic Disney story about a Park Avenue Cocker Spaniel, and a vagabond pup from the other side of the tracks. Of course, they have their first kiss while eating a bowl of spaghetti!
If you’re like me and love this move, check out our recent review of Tony’s Town Square here. The Lady and the Tramp theming is so charming! If you’re a fan of the Live Action Lady and the Tramp film, check out their playdate at Disney Land.
As for this month’s design, I suppose Stitch supposedly crashes through while Lady and the Tramp are enjoying their favorite dish of spaghetti? While I appreciate the fact there are contrasting fabric designs, the spaghetti on top of Stitch’s head leaves me guessing here. I love the Hidden Mickey on Stitch’s right foot though!
The Lion King
This month on March 19 (that’s today!), shopDisney released the latest Stitch Crashes Disney plush and Magic Band based on Disney’s 1994 musical, The Lion King.
This set features the warm colors of an African safari. The contrasting fabrics balance the tribal and jungle vibe of the movie perfectly. One question haunts this design though, what’s up with the grubs on Stitch’s head?
Another unique feature for this month’s set is the “preordering” of the jumbo pins. Also, if you’re collecting each one of this unique Stitch pins, be sure to grab the 3-ring binder to hold them all. It evens come with an exclusive starter pin!
The Little Mermaid
Unlike shopDisney UK, the United States shopDisney doesn’t run on a fixed schedule. Since The Lion King set was released in March, hopefully we’ll see The Little Mermaid release in April. Keep a watch here as we’ll announce the date as soon as it’s released.
I love the oversized 3-dimensional pins in this collection. They are larger in person than I expected. Unfortunately, shopDisney.com hasn’t released a preview of the Limited Release Magic Band. It will contain the pattern shown above. This set depicts the under the sea world from The Little Mermaid.
While we know there will be 12 sets released in this collection, we don’t know all of the movies that will be featured yet. So far, Disney has released that set 5 is based on Pinocchio. Also, set 6 is based on one of my classic films, Aladdin.
