Mickey’s Circus- Two New Platforms

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.
Update 9/10/12 This is just a total shot in the dark, but taking into account everything we heard and saw at Mickey’s Circus, I have an idea about this shadow platform. The Disney Design Group is sharing designs across product lines. We especially see this with the 2013 Poster Art line. I believe DDG artist Casey Jones has designed the following artwork for princesses including Ariel. This art has now appeared on at least pins and shirts. To me, the shape is uncannily similar. I’m tossing it out there that this is a preview of a new line of these “Stylized Princess Portraits.” This shadow figure being Ariel, with more to come with their own unique shape. Thoughts?
The rest of the Stylized Princess Portraits:

During the talk Disney revealed two new platforms. The one is the Minnie mouse platform which will be part of Cutesters. The second is more mysterious. What do you think?

I traced over it to show how it looks to me. Definitely looks like Ariel with a huge head.

I HOPE it’s Ariel. That would be awesome!!! I hope they don’t make us wait in suspense too long to find out more.

Also, if the mystery mold is Ariel, then it shouldn’t be for Park Starz as those are just characters exclusive to the Parks right? So if it is her, then it has to be some kind of new mold/series.

The minnie mouse is cool but I don’t like the idea of a princess mold, the whole point is for it to be designs on the shape of Mickey Mouse!

First off, love the possibility of seeing a Princess mold, though a part of me wants to see them on a Mickey canvas.

Secondly, while I’m not keen on the Cutesters En Vogue/Minnie mold, it should be interesting to see how it plays out – the anime inspired eyes seem to make a comeback.

It probably a Cartoon-ish Arial style mold.

Taking into account the individual stylized portraits, I can totally see Disney making different molds for each princess. Belle or Cinderella would not look nearly as good on the Ariel mold as they would on their own mold.
