Exciting news today, as Pandora have quietly dropped a press release announcing the impending launch of the Pandora Disney range in Europe, the Middle East and Africa! This has been a long time coming, and fans across the globe have been clamouring for Pandora Disney pieces since the range was first announced for North America back in 2014.
The initial launch, scheduled for October, will have around 30 pieces, primarily the core Mickey & Minnie Mouse charms and the Disney princesses. These will be available from concept stores, official eStores and selected department stores – so it doesn’t sound like shop-in-shops or other online retailers will be selling them just yet. Additionally, great news for many fans of Disneyland Paris – they will now be stocking the Pandora Disney line and Pandora jewellery in general! This makes me so excited, as hopefully they should be stocking the Disney Parks exclusives as well.
The UK is not explicitly mentioned in the press release, but if you follow this link, it does say that the UK is considered to be part of EMEA region (Europe, Middle East, Africa), so I can’t see why we wouldn’t be getting the beads here. Fingers crossed, eh!
To give you some background, historically Chamilia have held the contract to sell Disney-themed jewellery in Europe, and this has meant that Pandora has had to wait for that contract to expire before they can launch their Disney jewellery line here. It looks like that has happened, so I expect that Chamilia will now discontinue their Disney line.
I can’t tell you how excited I would be if I could actually walk into a store here in the UK and see the Disney charms in person before buying them, so I am keeping fingers and toes crossed that this includes the UK as well! And Disneyland Paris stocking the Parks exclusives would be amazing, too.
Are you excited for this news? :D
