LEGO fan site Brickshow.com has just released some juicy info that LEGO and Disney fans would like to watch out. 2023 marks 100 years of Disney since the media giant was founded by brothers Walt Disney and Roy O. Disney in 1923. And for this year, it seems that LEGO is jumping on the festivities bandwagon with a highly rumored new collectible minifigure series said to launch in May of this year.
According to reports compiled by the Brickshow team, we can expect a total of 18 Disney characters – both old and new – to be given the iconic LEGO minifigure treatment. Given the wealth of films that Disney produced during the past century, it is certainly a challenge to boil down the final selections to 18. Here are the Disney characters that are rumored to become official LEGO minifigs.
Oswald the Lucky Rabbit (from classic Disney shorts)
Pinocchio with a fish bowl (from Pinocchio, 1940)
Jiminy Cricket with Umbrella (from Pinocchio, 1940)

As it is but a rumor, I strongly advise that you take this with a pinch of salt. It’s surely great to see these Disney characters take center stage as far as LEGO is concerned. We’ll have to wait and see if this rumor turns out to be true. In the meantime be sure, to keep tabs on our blog site for more updates as we celebrate 100 Years of Disney.
