The Disney100 1970s Decades Collection will be released on shopDisney on July 17 at 8:00 a.m. PT, and in Disney Parks the same day. We previously got a first look at the new Muppets-inspired Loungefly mini backpack featuring Electric Mayhem, but now know the collection will also include “The Aristocats,” “The Rescuers,” “Robin Hood,” and “Pete’s Dragon.”
A preview image shows an ear headband inspired by “The Aristocats.” The sequin ears feature some of the music-playing cats from the film. Instead of a bow, Duchess and Thomas O’Malley are dancing between the ears.
Also set to be part of the collection are a set of “The Rescuers” plush of Miss Bianca, Bernard, and Evinrude; limited edition “Robin Hood” MagicBand+; and limited release “Pete’s Dragon” Elliott pin set.
