After sharing a first look at the Disney Fairytale Designer Collection set of lithographs celebrating several of the most popular couples in Disney lore, we are pleased to share a first look at a couple of the doll pairings from the upcoming Disney Store collection.
Here we have pictured Jasmine with Aladdin (as Prince Ali) along with Snow White and her Prince. Other anticipated couples include Ariel with Prince Eric, Rapunzel with Flynn Rider and Belle with Beast.
We anticipate more information on the collection towards the end of the month. At the Disney D23 Expo in August, the dolls and the related collection will be spotlighted by Disney Store at the Disney Consumer Products pavilion.
Making the rounds on the interwebs this weekend, and even hinted at by Disney Store designer Steve Thompson, is our first look at the fabled upcoming Disney Fairytale Designer Collection featuring several Disney Princesses alongside their romantic counterparts.

Walt Disney Animation Studios has just provided us with two hi-res stills from its upcoming animated short, Tangled Ever After, which will premiere before Beauty and the Beast 3D when it opens in theaters beginning tomorrow, January 13.
Tangled Ever After picks up where Tangled left off. The Kingdom is in a festive mood as everyone gathers for the royal wedding of Rapunzel and Flynn. However, when Pascal and Maximus, as flower chameleon and ring bearer, respectively, lose the gold bands, a frenzied search and recovery mission gets underway. As the desperate duo tries to find the rings before anyone discovers that they’re missing, they leave behind a trail of comical chaos that includes flying lanterns, a flock of doves, a wine barrel barricade and a very sticky finale. Will Maximus and Pascal save the day and make it to the church in time? And will they ever get Flynn’s nose right?
