To add a little bit of the Disney magic to the TTRPG world, Disney is releasing its own trading card game, Disney Lorcana, with the assistance of Ravensburger this fall. Players in Disney Lorcana will find themselves working as illumineers for the mystical world of Lorcana, which will gradually reveal its story.
Disney characters are brought into a book as “glimmers”—special versions of the characters that only exist in that world—by the magic of magical ink to assist in the hunt for lost lore and safeguard the realm of Lorcana.
In order to establish the rules and story for the mythical setting and magic-filled inks, Disney Lorcana: The First Chapter will be the trading card game’s initial release. Then, four sets will be produced annually, increasing the number of cards in the collection and deepening the narrative that surrounds them. To know everything about Disney Lorcans, keep reading!!
Disney Lorcana First Chapter Release Date
This fall, the first chapter of the enchanting Disney Lorcana Lorebook will be completed when Set 1, Disney Lorcana: The First Chapter, debuts on August 18 in specialty hobby stores. The game will be made accessible for mass-market purchase on September 1st.
Take a look at the tweet by The Bearded Dragon below which states that Disney Lorcano First Chapter will release on August 18, 2023.

The US, Canada, UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg will all sell Disney Lorcana. Now, let us walk through the starter decks of Disney Lorcana.
Disney Lorcana: The First Chapter Starter Decks
Disney does not print special cards for cons or other events in an effort to get around the Pokémon TCG’s main difficulty with exclusive cards. There are three starter decks in Disney Lorcana: The First Chapter, each of which has two ink colors. The cost of each is $16.99 USD, $21.99 CAD, or £17.99 GBP.
- Disney Lorcana: The First Chapter Amber & Amethyst Starter Deck
- Disney Lorcana: The First Chapter Sapphire & Steel Starter Deck
- Disney Lorcana: The First Chapter Emerald & Ruby Starter Deck
The various magical ink variations will each offer a different magical strategy, much like how MTG handles its color formulas for powers. There haven’t been many particular cards presented, making it difficult for fans to deduce what each color will concentrate its abilities on.
