All Disney Lorcana Sets (Available and Upcoming)

disney lorcana sets

When Disney Lorcana was first announced in 2022, it’s fair to say that it almost immediately caused quite a stir.

It launched in 2023, which ended up being one of the biggest and most exciting years ever for Trading Card Games (TCGs).

For many years, Magic: The Gathering (the world’s first Collectable Card Game or CCG, which is functionally the same thing as a TCG), Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh had dominated the attention of players and collectors; though countless more TCGs and CCGs have come and gone over the last several decades, few have ever dented the dominance of those three games.

Magic: The Gathering celebrated its thirtieth anniversary in 2023, with a slew of hugely exciting releases, including the incredible Lord of the Rings sets. Even Pokemon revisited its origins with the massively popular Scarlet & Violet: 151 set, and Yu-Gi-Oh’s 25th anniversary brought the highly sought after Quarter Century Secret Rare cards to its own game.

With all of this happening in the TCG space, it would be easy to think that there’d be no room for an entirely new game; publisher Ravensburger’s Disney Lorcana Trading Card Game completely blew that assumption out of the water, however.

With numerous sets already released and several more on the way, we take a look at what’s already here, as well as what’s next for Disney Lorcana!

Disney Lorcana Set Release Schedule

TCGs can have what feels like quite a relentless pace in terms of product releases, especially if you’re new to this type of game.

However, it’s seen as a necessity, both to keep the game and its mechanics evolving, as well as to ensure that more competitive players must adapt their decks and strategies as the game moves forward.

Note that each release date given is the date that the set was or will be released into dedicated game stores. The pattern for the full retail release of each set has, so far, been for launch to be two weeks after availability in game stores.

Here are all of the details for sets released so far, as well as what we know of upcoming sets.

Disney Lorcana: The First Chapter (August 18th, 2023)

Lorcana The First Chapter Starter Decks

With such intense excitement around the release of Disney Lorcana’s debut set, The First Chapter, stock of the entire product range was extremely difficult to find for weeks, in some cases months, after its launch in August 2023.

It’s not difficult to see why; not only was Lorcana a brilliantly designed TCG with easy to understand, addictive gameplay, but the beautiful cards, drawing on decades of Disney history, lent themselves beautifully to collecting too.

The First Chapter’s product range was fairly straightforward and has set the template for subsequent sets.

Firstly, there were three Starter Decks, each showcasing a different combination of two of the game’s Inks (more information can be found in our Lorcana Ink types guide). In addition to a pre-constructed deck, these also each contain a booster pack of random cards and tokens to help track Lore and damage to your characters.

These decks were Amber and Amethyst (featuring Moana and Mickey Mouse), Emerald and Ruby (Cruella De Vil and Aladdin) and, lastly, Sapphire and Steel (Aurora and Simba).

A Gift Set and the Illumineer’s Trove provided more exclusive cards and booster packs, along with special tokens and other accessories.

Premium, official accessories such as sleeves, deck boxes and play mats were also made available to accompany the release of The First Chapter.

Disney Lorcana: Rise of the Floodborn (November 17th, 2023)

Disney Lorcana Rise of the Floodborn Starter Decks

Despite a greater focus on Floodborn characters (check out our guide to the differences between Storyborn, Dreamborn and Floodborn in Disney Lorcana), the second set for Lorcana didn’t rock the boat or introduce anything too overwhelming.

In fact, the biggest change it brought, in comparison to the mechanics established in The First Chapter, was the introduction of a single keyword: Resist.

The product range on offer was largely the same too; however, instead of three decks covering all Ink colours, there were just two: the Amber and Sapphire deck (headed up by The Queen and Gaston) and the Amethyst and Steel deck (featuring Merlin and Tiana).

Instead of a specific Rise of the Floodborn Gift Set, however, this time there was a Disney 100 Gift Set, commemorating Disney’s centenary and featuring a selection of cards illustrated by Disney animators.

Disney Lorcana: Into the Inklands (February 23rd, 2024)

Disney Lorcana Into the Inklands Starter Decks

The first set of 2024, Into the Inklands felt like a much more interesting and unique set than Rise of the Floodborn.

It focused on expeditions and adventurers, bringing in characters from the likes of Duck Tales and Treasure Planet, as well as new Location cards that added an exciting new element to Lorcana.

Intriguingly, it also featured characters from 101 Dalmatians and even allowed players to build a deck comprised of 101 Dalmatian cards too!

Mirroring the Rise of the Floodborn release, there’s only two Starter Decks for Into the Inklands: Amber and Emerald (Pongo and Peter Pan), plus Ruby and Sapphire (Moana and Scrooge McDuck).

An Illumineer’s Trove and an Into the Inklands-themed Gift Set were also available, in addition to the now standard playmats, deck boxes and card sleeves.

Disney Lorcana: Ursula’s Return (May 17th, 2024)

Lorcana Entangled Characters

Despite the fact that Into the Inklands brought an entirely new card type to Lorcana with Locations, it seems that Ravensburger are definitely not going to be resting on their laurels when it comes to new features in upcoming sets.

One of the biggest new developments in Lorcana, perhaps in any TCG for many years, is the introduction of the Illumineer’s Quest set, which brings solo and co-op play to the game.

Disney Lorcana Illumineer's Quest Box

As we’ve covered in our how to play solo and co-op in Disney Lorcana guide, the Illumineer’s Quest set will allow players to take on the set’s sea witch character, Ursula, either solo or co-operatively with up to three other players. Entangled Characters, under the control of Ursula, make their debut with the Deep Trouble set, and these feature on a deck with a different, lighter coloured card back.

A new keyword ability, ‘Sing Together‘, also allows players to collaborate in order to use powerful Songs and take down the Sea Witch.

Lorcana Ursula's Return Starter Deck

As with all other sets (The First Chapter aside), there are two Starter Decks in Ursula’s Return;  the Amber and Amethyst deck featuring Encanto characters Mirabel Madrigal and Bruno Madrigal, then the Sapphire and Steel deck with Anna and Hercules.

You can check out the full list of cards from Ursula’s Return here. Beyond the Illumineer’s Quest set and Starter Decks, the usual range of sleeves, play mats, deck boxes were also released, along with a Gift Set and Illumineer’s Trove, each featuring exclusive cards and other accessories, as well as booster packs from the Ursula’s Return set.

Disney Lorcana: Shimmering Skies (August 9th, 2024)

Shimmering Skies Starter Decks

We know that the fifth Disney Lorcana set will be named Shimmering Skies, and will heavily feature characters from Wreck-It Ralph.

We also know that the story continues after Ursula’s Return, with the outcome of players defeating the Sea Witch (using the Illumineer’s Quest set; if you don’t mind spoilers, check out our guide to what happens when you win, right here) setting the stage for a big party near the Great Illuminary.

Vanellope Cards Lorcana Shimmering Skies

Though it doesn’t seem as if ‘throwing a party’ is a major story, we suspect that the pattern of sets is following the ‘trilogy’ of the first three Lorcana releases. With Ursula’s Return kicking off a second trilogy with new mechanics and game modes, the follow up set (similar to Rise of the Floodborn following The First Chapter) doesn’t introduce anything too earth-shattering. Rise of the Floodborn introduced a single new keyword (Resist), so we’d speculate that we may see something of this nature appear in Shimmering Skies too.

We also are aware that a new ‘Gateway’ set will be released to accompany the 5th set; this will introduce a proper, tutorial-style experience for very new or much younger players, to help them learn and become involved in Disney Lorcana.

Disney Villainous Introduction to Evil: Lorcana Promo Box

Finally, Lorcana is crossing over, in a manner of speaking, with Ravensburger’s hugely popular Disney board game series, Villainous. Fans who purchase the Introduction to Evil set, which provides an easier way to play Disney Villainous for new players, will receive an exclusive Prince John promo card in the box.

Prince John Promo Card

You can see the promo card above; this will, apparently, only be included in the Introduction to Evil set. Note that, even though Introduction to Evil is already available to buy, you won’t receive the Prince John card unless it is specified on the front of the box with a Lorcana sticker!

Disney Lorcana: Set 6 (November 15th, 2024)

As of yet; no name or other details beyond the release date have yet been confirmed for Lorcana’s sixth set.

If we are to assume that the sixth set will mirror the third set’s release in some way, could we see a new card type added to the game, just as Location cards were added in Into the Inklands? 

If not, will we see more new keywords and mechanics arriving in the sixth set?

Given that the Illumineer’s Quest set concluded the initial story of Lorcana’s first sets, we’re not likely to see another of these until set 7, but Ravensburger have certainly surprised us before, so could we see another?

All of these questions will be answered in time, of course; we’ll be on hand to update this very article as soon as new details are released!
