Disney is going to celebrate some of your beloved movies all of next year with themed stuffed animals, mugs, journals, and more.
Starting in January, the Disney Store will launch the Disney Wisdom Collection, which will celebrate the “timeless wisdom” in a dozen of the company’s beloved movies. Each month will highlight an inspirational quote from an iconic Disney movie moment.
INSIDER can exclusively reveal the first three themes will center around “Dumbo,” “Mulan,” and “The Jungle Book” in January, February, and March, respectively.
This isn’t the first time Disney has released a year-long collection. For Mickey’s 90th birthday, Disney Store celebrated the mouse all of 2018 by revealing a new collection of Mickey-themed items from mugs to matching plushes each month.
Here’s a closer look at what you can expect from the Disney Wisdom Collection in the first quarter of the new year.
The first theme is “Dumbo,” ahead of the March 29 release of the live-action movie starring the little elephant who can fly.
The collection, out January 19, comes with a plush Dumbo stuffed animal ($US26.95), collector’s mug, journal, and pins that are centered around a quote from Dumbo’s friend, Timothy Q. Mouse where he says, “Thevery things that held you down are going to lift you up, and up, and up.”
Each iconic Disney quote will be written on the stuffed plush released.
Disney tells INSIDER inspiration for the quotes came from guest responses to the first release in the Mickey Mouse Memories collection where a Walt Disney quote appeared on the mouse’s foot reading, “I only hope that we never lose site of one thing – that it was all started by a Mouse.” According to Disney, guests liked seeing the quote incorporated on the plush.
Disney’s stackable mug has Timothy’s quote front and center. Dumbo and Timothy are translucent on the other side. The mug will be available for $US18.95.
A journal will also have the “Dumbo” quote on its cover. The inside pages will feature Timothy and Dumbo in opposite corners in the spread. It will be available for $US16.95.
Three limited-edition pins will feature Dumbo, Timothy, and the quote on its own. The three will be sold together for $US16.95.
February’s collection will revolve around 1998 animated movie, “Mulan,” and the quote, “The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.”
The Emperor of China says this line to General Li near the movie’s end to describe Mulan. The quote is alluded to at the movie’s start when Mulan’s father places a flower in her hair.
Mulan’s dragon friend and spiritual guardian Mushu will be available for purchase.
Expect to see the entire “Mulan” collection revealed January 19. It will go on sale Saturday, February 16, 2019.
March: “The Jungle Book”
Look for Baloo from Disney’s 1967 animated musical this month. “The Jungle Book” theme will center around the loveable bear’s iconic “Bare Necessities” song. “Forget about your worries and your strife” will appear written on Baloo’s stomach.
Baloo and the rest of the “Jungle Book” collection will be released Saturday, March 16.
Future collections will be introduced into the Disney Wisdom Collection the third Saturday of every month. On that same day, the following month’s theme will be revealed. The final collection of the year will be released on Saturday, December 7, 2019.
