Next week, the live action Beauty and the Beast hits movie theaters. To coincide with that, the team at Disney Magic Kingdoms are releasing a pretty lengthy update, which includes permanent content as well as a new classic-animated Beauty and the Beast event. Here is a rundown from today’s livestream.
~ MERLIN is being added as a playable character, and he will have spells which will let you collect instantly from all buildings, boost your happiness to max, and shield your happiness from lowering. This is not timed exclusive.
~ CHIP & DALE will be added to the game in the Mickey & Friends Storyline. This is not timed exclusive.
~ One additional parcel of land will be opened up, with more *hopefully* soon.
~ Tuxedo Mickey Costume being released after start of BatB Event. This is not a timed exclusive.
Beauty and the Beast Limited Time Event:
~ Characters include: Beast, Cogsworth, Lumiere, Belle, Gaston, Mrs. Potts (Premium) and Chip (Premium)
~ Costumes include: Beast’s Suit, Belle’s Gown
~ Buildings include Belle’s House, Beast’s Castle, Gaston’s Tavern, Be Our Guest Restaurant
~ New Concession: Creperie… New Decor: Hare Shrub, Fantasy Well
– Vine Cages, similar to Snowgies but easier to do
– Plate and Silverware: New Breakable, like the Fantasia Brooms
– BatB Parade Float, Giant cake with Belle and Beast dancing
– Looks like the storyline is that Gaston is crashing the ball and you have to stop him.
I believe the event is supposed to start around the same time at the movie’s premiere next week, but they could not confirm. Also no confirmation on length, but it will be longer than the 7 days you see in the stills as the “test run”.
