It Looks Like a Great Year Ahead for LEGO and Disney This 2021 and Beyond

Disney is on a roll when it officially revealed during its Walt Disney Co.’s Investor Day presentation, that it has more than 50 new upcoming content in the works in the upcoming years. From the Marvel Cinematic Universe to its very lucrative Star Wars franchise, plus home-grown live-action and animated films, there is plenty of exciting series and films that fans can expect. If there is one thing certain about this partnership between LEGO and Disney, is that LEGO never fails to come up with a set or two for every major title that Disney releases. And with the introduction of a handful of new Marvel and Star Wars series, together with new Disney titles, there is sure to be a LEGO set currently in the works related to these.

Just to be clear, there is no guarantee at this point if LEGO will eventually come up with a particular set for each of these films and series, but then again the potential is always there given LEGO’s track record of releasing tie-in sets. So with that out of the way, let’s take a quick look at these titles and the wealth of possibilities that a collaboration between LEGO and Disney may come out later on.

New LEGO Star Wars Trouble on Tatooine (75299) Announced for 2021

It looks like the hit Disney+ series will get another LEGO Star Wars set dedicated to its name. Following the latest episode of This Week in Star Wars over on YouTube, it was revealed that Mando has earned another LEGO set that captures his journey together with the mysterious Child. Check out the details of the LEGO Star Wars Trouble on Tatooine (75299) set as seen in this video.

This latest Mandalorian-inspired LSW set is the 5th under the belt of this fearless minifigure warrior. Coming in at 276 pieces, the LEGO Star Wars Trouble in Tatooine includes minifigure versions of the Mandalorian himself in his shiny, new Beskar armor, a The Child, and a Tusken Raider. The set also features a small desert encampment, a Speeder Bike, and a Tusken plane equipped with a spring-loaded harpoon. It is expected to retail for $29.99 when it arrives in January 2021.

LEGO Star Wars Trouble on Tatooine

For the price of 30 bucks, I have to say that this set is a nice deal in itself. Compared to the pricier LEGO Star Wars The Razor Crest (75292) and LEGO Star Wars The Child (75318), the Trouble in Tatooine (75299) set is a great way to get The Child minifigure without breaking the bank.

As of this posting, LEGO Shop@Home has not yet listed this latest LEGO Star Wars set, but as per the video announcement, we can expect more updates on Monday next week so hopefully, we can get to see further details about this set by then, along side other LEGO Star Wars 2021 sets that we believe are slated to be officially revealed anytime soon.

WATCH: LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street (21324) Designer Video

In case you missed it, LEGO has uploaded a designer video for its latest LEGO Ideas set, the LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street (21324). LEGO Designer Ollie Gregory, together with Sam Johnson, LEGO Creative Lead, and LEGO Graphic Designer Crystal Fontan gives us a tour in this official LEGO version of the iconic New York apartment building in 123 Sesame Street. Watch this.

This set gives tribute to the classic US children’s television show that started it all. It features a ton of references that adult fans of the show will surely catch. We have Big Bird’s Nest, Abby Cadabby’s Garden, Elmo’s Bedroom, Bert and Ernie’s Bedroom, Cookie Monster’s Monsterpiece Theater, and Mr. Hooper’s Store among many others. There’s also an easter egg reference hidden in Elmo’s room that shows a micro build replica of the LEGO Thatcher Perkins Locomotive (396) released in 1976.

Seldom does a new LEGO Ideas set get’s the green light in having new LEGO pieces, and the 123 Sesame Street (21324) is an exception. All five main minifigures in this set are made from new LEGO elements, such as the minifig heads for Big Bird, Bert, Ernie, Cookie Monster, and Elmo.

New printed elements also include the famous Sesame Street sign, a printed 1×2 brick with the 123 address of the building, a clear minifigure head for Dorothy’s goldfish bowl, a printed ball element for Oscar the Grouch, and a printed heart element for his pet Slimy. There’s also a total of 22 stickers in this set, among which includes a pretty neat homage to Ivan Guerrero, the LEGO fan designer behind this set. This particular sticker is found in Elmo’s room, featuring a letter written by Elmo to his friend Ivan.

Despite these limitations, there are still plenty of reasons to visit (following health safety protocols in your area, of course) your fave LEGO Store and to check out the freebies that they have in store for next month. Take a look at next month’s LEGO Store promotional calendar below. You may also download a PDF copy of this LEGO promotional calendar right here.

Speaking about the creative journey, Ivan Guerrero said: “As a long-time fan of the LEGO Group and Sesame Street, it has been a dream come true to be able to merge my two passions into a memorable set for fellow builders to enjoy. LEGO bricks and Sesame Street shaped both my childhood and adult years, and the opportunity to work with the LEGO Ideas team to bring this quintessential New York street to life has been thrilling.”

Federico Begher, VP of Global Marketing at The LEGO Group added: “We were instantly drawn to Ivan’s idea, as we had never created an official LEGO product with Sesame Street before. It was clear from the submission that Ivan is passionate about Sesame Street and he really brought it to life with a wide array of characters and bright, classic colors. For the first time in the history of LEGO Ideas, we also had the opportunity to create brand new minifigures for a set – bringing something new and exciting to our LEGO fans.

Knowing the impact Sesame Street has had on the world for decades, sharing similar values with generations past and present, this felt like an exciting way to blend novelty with nostalgia, and pay homage to the truly iconic 123 Sesame Street through LEGO Ideas.”
