All Disney Lorcana cards at D23 Expo, whether they are included in the D23 Expo Collector’s Set or the Mickey – Brave Little Tailor promo card, will be available in the first set, Disney Lorcana: The First Chapter being released in Fall 2023.

“Our current leadership values the importance of protecting intellectual property of both Upper Deck and its licensors,” Masherah added. “We encourage competition in the industry, but also strongly believe in playing by the rules to ensure the gaming community benefits from the different creative choices by each manufacturer.”
There is a history of trading card game titles at Upper Deck, such as the Marvel-based Legendary and Vs. System 2PCG.
Lorcana is due to hit shelves on August 18.
