Say “Aloha” to a new Disney collection for 2021! In 2020, Disney gave their fans the amazing (and elusive) Minnie Mouse: Main Attraction collection. In 2021, things are about to get a bit more mischievous. Disney has announced the Stitch Crashes Disney collection. Each month will feature Stitch crashing favorite classic Disney films, causing chaos as only Stitch can! Disney previewed the collection on shopDisney, giving the Disney fan ‘Ohana a taste of what’s to come for this wild collection.
Stitch Crashes Disney Collection
Disney posted this awesome preview video. This collection is inspired by the original 2002 film trailers for Lilo and Stitch, which you can see portions of in this video!
According to Disney:
In 2002, Stitch crashed fans’ favorite Walt Disney Animation Studio film scenes, and now in 2021, they can join shopDisney, Disney store and Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort and Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort as he crashes an all-new collectible series, all year-long! Releasing globally on the third Saturday of each month, Stitch Crashes Disney is the latest introduction of a monthly collection that features plush and pins, inspired by the original Lilo and Stitch film trailers from 2002. All year long, the mischievous character will be crashing classic Disney Animated films and fans are invited to join him in the fun to collect all 12 styles!
This collection will be available on shopDisney first, followed by a release in Disney Stores globally and U.S. Disney Parks. The January collection gives fans an idea of how Disney will roll out these collectibles each month. Right now, it appears each monthly release will include a plush, pin, and MagicBand options.
Stitch Crashes Disney Collection – January
In the first month of this collection, Stitch channels his inner beast as he crashes the Disney classic, Beauty and the Beast – just in time for the film’s 30th anniversary. This collection includes a plush, pin, and MagicBand, indicating the items we will likely see in each month’s release. The MagicBand will only be available on shopDisney, unlike the plush and pin, which will be available when the collection releases in Disney Stores and theme parks each month.
This January release is mischievously adorable! The plush is patterned with the Beauty and the Beast stained glass rose pattern. It looks like Stitch stole the rose from under Beast’s nose.
The pin is similar to the plush, with Stitch patterned in stained glass artwork and holding a rose in his mouth. There is even a pink rose pattern on the inside of Stitch’s ears!
There is not a close-up photo of the MagicBand – yet. But, we can see it in this photo of the whole collection! It has a purple base scattered with dark purple roses with Stitch biting Beast’s rose on the side.
