Disney Lorcana confirmed today that the new immersive card game will be sold in the parks as well as on shopDisney. According to the release, the cards will be available beginning September 1, 2023, on shopDisney, the first officially confirmed online retailer for the game.
Disney Lorcana Trading Card Game
Disney Lorcana: The First Chapter will be available in hobby or specialist stores before seeing a full launch and online retail availability. Set 1 will be purchasable for card-collecting enthusiasts beginning on August 18 in specialty stores, while a full mass-market retail launch is expected on September 1. This includes availability on shopDisney.
The competitive collectible trading card game is being created by Ravensburger. Disney and Ravensburger have a history of partnership in creating games for Disney fans; they are also the creators of the fan-favorite Villainous game series.

Several cards are showcased within “The First Chapter” in this teaser trailer, including iterations for Elsa, Captain Hook, Robin Hood, Stitch, Cruella De Vil and Maleficent. Each of the cards showcase colorful illustrations and abilities that coincide with major attributes of the featured character. Many of the cards also feature quotes from the respective films.
Additional card overviews can be viewed in the Disney Lorcana Twitter feed, as shared above. Here, fan-favorite Cheshire Cat lounges on a tree branch.
Goofy has also made an appearance in Disney Lorcana’s promotional marketing. He is dressed for flying, much like the lore surrounding his attractions in Disneyland and at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World.
Fans of villain Lady Tremaine will be able to collect a card featuring Cinderella’s antagonist, as well.
Tigger’s card was also featured on the Disney Lorcana Twitter feed. Disney Lorcana has neither confirmed nor denied the appearance of other characters in the “Winnie the Pooh” franchise as of yet.
Like many other popular trading card games, the cards each showcase a variety of classifications and skills that can be used in synergy with one another to gain a tactical advantage over an opponent during the game.
