Dixit, the Modern Classic, Meets the Disney Universe!
PARIS — February 1, 2023 — Today, innovative board game publisher Libellud announced its first collaboration with Disney, the world’s premier entertainment company, with the introduction of Dixit Disney. This new, standalone game in the Dixit universe, is based on the beloved themes and characters found in Disney and Pixar films.
Dixit Disney is a simple and lighthearted game of storytelling, interpretation, and guesswork. Players will be challenged and delighted as they reveal a series of cards featuring gorgeous Disney-themed images. Their connection: an enigmatic statement centered on one of the revealed cards. Find the correct image and score points. With 84 new cards based on iconic Disney & Pixar films, from Steamboat Willie to Turning Red, Dixit Disney will captivate players.
The game’s enchanting artwork, by Illustrator Natalie Dombois, took two years from conception to completion. Creating the 84 cards (each based on one of 84 Disney and Pixar films) relied on a meticulous process, comprised of multiple stages, and involving contributions from the entire Libellud team – over 500 written proposals! The finished images pay tribute to Disney’ iconic themes, while staying true to the layered concepts in the Dixit universe.
“We’re really excited about this collaboration,” says Libellud Head of Studio, Mathieu Aubert. “Dixit Disney brings together two beloved brands, who share values of creativity, inspiration and a commitment to quality. This partnership and the opportunity to create artwork from the Disney universe are a dream come true and we cannot wait to bring the game to fans across the globe.”
An engaging way to spend time connecting with family and friends, Dixit Disney will launch first in the U.S. at Barnes and Noble as part of their “First to Market” program in fall 2023 for an MSRP of $39.99 USD.
