During the “Disney Heroes vs. Villains” digital pin experience on Dec. 4, 2021, several new Disney pin series were unveiled for next year.
Marking holidays in 2022 will be special pins featuring Muppets characters Sam Eagle for President’s Day and Kermit the Frog, who makes it easy to be green on St. Patrick’s Day. Mickey Mouse will appear on pins for both Earth Day and Mardi Gras, while Minnie Mouse will commemorate Doctor’s Day. Additional holiday pins will feature Cinderella and Prince Charming for Valentine’s Day, Stitch for Spring Break, and Dopey for Spring.
Mystery Sets for 2022 include the “Hercules 25th Anniversary Set,” which consists of 10 pins featuring scenes from the animated movie on stylized Grecian urns and the “Disney Beauty and the Beast: Windows of Love” set that depicts characters on nine colorful stained glass windows.
The “Disney Ultimate Princess Celebration Series” — part of the Disney Designer Collection — features portraits of Mulan by artist Danae Cendejas, Tiana by artist Launi King, and Aurora by artist Victoria Hamilton on rectangular hinge pins with clear acetate and marbleized fills.
Mulan will also be featured in the “Disney Beautiful Florals” monthly pin series, along with Belle and Pocahontas. The 3-D, fully-sculpted flower (a rose for Belle, a magnolia for Mulan, and a sunflower for Pocahontas) pivots to reveal the princess beneath.
Two additional monthly pin series are “Disney Our Transformation Story,” featuring a pin-on-pin design depicting Ursula, Maleficent, and the Evil Queen (each in their two forms), and pin-on-pin “Disney Attraction Posters” highlighting popular lands and attractions.
Star Wars pin collectors won’t want to miss the “Lucas: Trilogy Series” that includes one pin representing each of the Star Wars movie trilogies: The “Prequel Trilogy” — “The Phantom Menace” (1999), “Attack of the Clones” (2002), and “Revenge of the Sith” (2005); The “Original Trilogy” — “A New Hope” (1977), “The Empire Strikes Back” (1980), and “Return of the Jedi” (1983); and the “Sequel Trilogy” — “The Force Awakens” (2015), “The Last Jedi” (2017), and “The Rise of Skywalker” (2019).
