New LEGO Disney Castle Coming!

The LEGO Group today revealed an all-new #43222 LEGO Disney Castle set, to celebrate 100 Years of Disney. The new 4,837-piece set is a celebration of the playful joy and creativity that the LEGO Group and Disney have inspired in families around the world over the past 24 years. Since the first LEGO Winnie the Pooh set was unveiled in 1999 to the hidden time capsule in the new LEGO Disney Castle, the two brands have helped fans share the wonder of Disney storytelling by inspiring children, and adults, to reimagine fan-favorite moments through LEGO play.

The new LEGO Disney Castle set is a homage to the iconic castle at the beginning of all Disney movies. The 4,837-piece features not only the castle building, but also references from 14 classic Disney films over the last 100 years, such as Steamboat Willie and Snow White (the first Disney Princess) to The Princess and the Frog, and Moana. The model measures 33cm/13″ long, 59cm/23″ wide, and 80cm/31” deep.

The set comes complete with eight minifigures, representing some of the Disney Princess characters and their male counterparts. Inside the castle are various rooms including a kitchen and dining room, a ballroom, and a bedroom. Each room has references to Disney films and characters, and there is even a secret turret for fans to discover a Disney time capsule with references to the 100-year history. Outside, the castle is decorated with fireworks.

Talking about her role as the Creative Design Lead for LEGO Disney, Benedikte Stamp said, “Over the last century, Disney has created some of the world’s greatest stories which are loved by generation after generation. Just like these stories, LEGO play transcends age, language, culture, and interests to inspire millions of children to build and create anything they can imagine. As a designer, it’s my role to bring together the magic of the two brands and give fans of all ages a chance to celebrate their love for Disney stories through building.”

The new #43222 LEGO Disney Castle set will be available globally for LEGO VIPs from the 1st of July, and for all from the 4th of July at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop for the recommended retail price of £344.99/€399.99/$399.99/8999.9 TRY/169990.0 HUF/3299.0 CNY/519.99 CAD/599.99 AUD. For more information, visit the LEGO Disney section of the Online LEGO Shop.

In addition, from the 1st to the 9th of July, anyone who purchases select LEGO Disney sets over £95/$/€100 at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop will also receive a LEGO Disney 100 Years Celebration set for free, featuring a podium, a movie screen, projector (which lights up), a desk and a Mickey Mouse minifigure (this set hasn’t been revealed yet).

The #71040 LEGO Disney Castle was released back in 2016 and it remained one of LEGO’s most popular sets, and it will be interesting to see how the two compare. What do you think?

    Nice colors! And I like the update on the turrets. Not a set I would buy, but I’m sure it will sell well.

    I’m stealing the fireworks design! Nice upgrade! The minifigs are really cool too!

    The turrets look so much better! I never liked those big wedge pieces on the last one. But it’s so big. I don’t know where I would put it. lol.

    Better than the first one in almost all ways! Very cool! I have the small one they released a couple of years ago. That’s probably all I can afford, but this is nice!
