    I thought I'd start a thread where we can discuss our best guesses/predictions of what the future releases of the WDI Heroines set will hold. You know. So we can brace ourselves for the misery.

    If Merlin is right (and he often is) and the releases are going in chronological order by movie release date, then they are chugging through the early movies. That would leave lots of room for more recent heroines. So here is my theory/hope for what's coming (based on the rumor of only 35 pins):

    February: Eilonwy, Jessica Rabbit, Penny (Oliver), Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Sally
    March: Pocahontas, Jessie, Esmeralda, Meg, Mulan, Jane, Kida
    April: Boo, Lilo, Giselle, Penny (Bolt), Tiana, Rapunzel, Vanellope
    May: Merida, Anna, Elsa, Joy, Honey Lemon, Gogo Tomago, Moana

    Other possibilities (especially if there are more than 35 pins) include:
    Olivia, Bianca, Nala, Nani, Capt. Amelia, Elastigirl, EVE, Sgt. Calhoun, Judy Hopps, Ellie, Grand Councilwoman, Violet

    Who else has a theory?

    ETA: HAH! And I already had to edit as I changed my mind. Did I mention I should be working?

    I'll come back with a more articulated post, but I think that there are at least two that are missing which stand out to me: Lilo and Moana

    Here's a "checklist" of how I would bet my money. Note that this list excludes characters from the cars universe for obvious reasons, and also excludes the Fab 5 characters.

    1) Here are our official Disney Princesses (most likely to be in the series):

    Mulan
    Snow White - Confirmed
    Tiana
    Cinderella - Confirmed
    Belle - Confirmed

    Merida
    Rapunzel
    Ariel - Confirmed
    Aurora - Confirmed
    Jasmine - Confirmed

    Pocahontas

    2) And here are some more "unofficial" princesses according to the internet (highly likely to be in the series):

    Alice - Confirmed
    Tinker Bell - Confirmed

    Esmeralda
    Megara
    Jane Porter
    Empress Kida
    Giselle
    President Vanellope von Schweetz
    Princess Anna
    Queen Elsa
    Princess Elena
    Moana

    3) Here's a list of other female characters that have prominent roles in a Disney film (likely to be in the series):

    Blue Fairy
    Maid Marian - Confirmed
    Wendy - Confirmed

    Jessica Rabbit
    Lilo
    Eilonwy - Confirmed
    Nala
    Judy Hopps
    Jessie
    Boo
    Joy
    Lady
    Shanti
    Duchess
    Elastigirl
    Penny (from Bolt)
    Penny (from the Rescuers) - Confirmed
    Jenny Foxworth (from Oliver and Company) - Confirmed

    Miss Bianca
    Perdita
    Captain Amelia
    Sally - Confirmed


    4) Here's a list of female characters that, although have prominent roles, either didn't have the starring role or have a series that isn't as popular as the others (unlikely to be in the series):

    Nani
    Angel
    Sofia the First
    Roxanne
    Violet Parr
    Eve
    Riley Anderson
    Franny Robinson
    Fairy Godmother
    Queen Elinor
    Kala
    Charlotte La Bouff
    Tiger Lily
    Grand Councilwoman
    Chica
    Ellie (UP)

    Moana's gotta be there too. Hopefully! They could also really surprise us by including Charlotte and/or Elena.

    I have Lilo, but I can't believe I forgot Moana! And Giselle! And I feel like those were two I was reminding people about before. :p

    No Hope about it. I see zero chance of Moana not being included in a Heroines series. (I hope I don't live to regret this post. :D)

    I'd love (and hate!) to see Ellie included, but I kinda doubt that would happen.

    I think there's a good chance we'll see Sally (NBC), though. And it's possible, though slim, that Rei (Star Wars) might show up.

    I admit I'm on the fence about EVE. I can just so clearly picture a design of her holding the boot with the plant. If I took her out, I would probably replace her with Judy or Boo.

    I'd love to see some Star Wars heroines, but given that they've passed over Mary Poppins, I think live-action appearances are less likely.

    I think they were in the villains series! So they're fair game. It's a tossup between Violet and Mrs Parr though. (My bet being on Mrs Parr)

    My guess is that they won't be doing characters that are 100% live action, so no Star Wars, Marvel, etc. and probably not Mary Poppins.

    Here are my theories for releases (put into chronological order by release date). This is mainly a wishlist of who I would like to see mixed with who I'm pretty positive will be included (all official princesses, most unofficial ones, characters they put out tons of pins of, etc.):

    - edited to cut six groups down to five -

    January (already released) : Snow White, Cinderella, Alice, Tink, Wendy, Briar Rose, Maid Marian

    February: Eilonwy, Olivia, Jessica Rabbit, Ariel (mermaid form), Belle (probably blue dress, since most of the other princesses are in their "peasant" outfits), Jasmine, Sally (NBC)
    March: Nala, Pocahontas, Esmeralda (white/purple outfit), Megara, Mulan (yellow/green outfit), Jane, Jessie
    April: Kida, Lilo, EVE, Tiana, Mrs. Incredible, Rapunzel, Merida
    May: Vanellope, Anna, Elsa, Go Go Tamago, Joy, Judy Hopps, Moana


    Possible characters that may replace some of the above:
    Minnie Mouse (black and white to match the Pete villain profile?)
    Daisy Duck
    Snow White (washrags)
    Cinderella (blue gown)
    Aurora (blue and/or pink gown)
    Dutchess and/or Marie (more likely Marie, since she is a very popular character for pins)
    Penny (Rescuers)
    Bianca
    Jenny
    Ariel (human form)
    Belle (winter outfit, yellow gown)
    Mulan (matchmaker outfit, armored/Ping, pink outfit from end of movie)
    Violet
    Ellie
    Giselle
    Penny (Bolt)
    Sgt. Calhoun
    Honey Lemon
    Sadness


    Characters that are unlikely:
    Flora, Fauna, and Merrywether - was debating putting them since they're more "sidekick" characters, but they included Anastasia and Drizella in the villains set, so...)
    Kanga
    Widow Tweed
    Vixy
    Georgette
    Rita
    Esmeralda (red dress) - put in unlikely since I don't think they'll do two pins of her
    Princess Atta
    Princess Dot
    Pilo
    Suri
    Neera
    Boo
    Celia
    Chachi
    Captain Amelia
    Dory
    Tanana
    Maggie
    Mrs. Calloway
    Grace
    Abbagail Mallard
    Sally (Cars)
    Lizzy (or any of the other numerous female Robinson family members)
    Colette
    Aunt Cass
    Disgust


    Characters missed if going in chronological order:
    Blue Fairy
    Mrs. Jumbo
    Faline
    Katrina
    Tiger Lily (though there are already two Pan characters so she would already be unlikely)
    Lady
    Darling
    Peg
    Perdita
    Anita
    Shanti
    Madame Bonfamille

    I will say this... the prices being asked for the full set have been steadily falling.

    To really throw a wrench into hopes and dreams (ha) ... has anyone else seen/heard that several people are reporting that there will only be FIVE sets of seven pins? I've seen this tidbit a few times since yesterday, but IDK where people got this information from (ie, direct from a CM who actually knows or speculation on the part of the unwashed masses). If so, you've only got 35 slots to play with, not even 40 as with the villains.

    That said, I have no real guesses because there are too many Disney movies whose characters I can't name, and y'all have this situation under control. But I do think, 35 or 40 pins total, there will be no repeats. It just doesn't make any sense for this type of series (even though, yes, Snow should have been in rags, like the other girls). And I also am wondering (just wondering) if they will avoid characters that already appeared in the Cats and Dogs frames series. I'm just not picturing them putting Marie or Nala into a Heroines profile. I will probably be wrong, ha ha, and would love to be wrong for the cat people! (Or is omission actually being *nicer* to the poor cat people? Ha.) But it's just a gut instinct that this series will feature The Usual (humanoid) Suspects, plus the Less Usual (humanoid) Suspects (Esmeralda, Meg, Jane, Kida), and leave very little room for much else. I think we all expect Heros next, but after that ...? Will they move on to another style of pin, or will they roll out other variants of this profile theme? Stay tuned!!!

    Yep, I've seen the 35 number bandied about as well, but like you, I have yet to see a source. It is notable that they only released 7 pins instead of 8.

    After Heroes, I could see a Sidekicks series.

    My 35 list would look like this:

    February: Eilonwy, Jessica Rabbit, Penny (Oliver), Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Sally
    March: Pocahontas, Jessie, Esmeralda, Meg, Mulan, Jane, Kida
    April: Boo, Lilo, Giselle, Penny (Bolt), Tiana, Rapunzel, Vanellope
    May: Merida, Anna, Elsa, Joy, Honey Lemon, Gogo Tomago, Moana

    And now that I look at it, that list seems much more realistic than my original guesses.

    I haven't heard any official word about the total size of the set. I was working off the assumption that, since this was also a profiles series, it would mirror the villains profile releases (5 sets of equal numbers). There could well be 39 pins (maybe there were supposed to be 5 sets of 8 but Eilonwy had a manufacturing error with her lenticular bauble so they took her off), or there could be more than 5 sets of 7, etc. I think we'll know more one the next set is released (if it has 7, 9, etc.). I'm also curious to see if the pins continue to feature handheld objects (Wendy doesn't have one but Eilonwy does) or if this group was just object-heavy.

    - edited because I just realized I made six lists instead of five, hahaha. off to edit my first post! -

    As for future series, I can definitely see sidekicks after heroes. (This would be amazing, as my favorite characters are typically sidekicks.) Maybe a combination of sidekicks and pets?

    I hope they have a Moana one! Gosh why are the moana songs so catchy!! I agree with the sidekicks one. I hope they release an animal series of these profiles!! Or another WDI cat series!

    On the number, if they stick with 7 per release, 5 releases does seem more likely than 6 IMO.

    Definitely agree on sidekicks as a likely set if they keep going.

    As far as my gut feeling goes, I wanna say Judy Hopps should be a given. I feel like the only reason why they didn't do a Zootopia villain pin is that neither of this movie's two baddies is too popular.
    And even if they don't, we'll still have this gorgeous fantasy pin by outta_our_minds, so I'm not too concerned about it:

    [​IMG]

    I'm betting Tamatoa - who glows in the dark btw - got the "Heroes" back card just because he's the only villain they made (and come to think of it, why didn't Disney do him? Hard to hope for Moana now, without a Moana villain).

    Also notice the idea that the heroes would be literally facing their baddies. Which I love so much and wish Disney went in that direction too! At least they still can make the princes/heroes face the princesses/heroines...

    Here are links to some more of this person's fantasy pins inspired by the WDI release, because honestly, they're amazing: Rapunzel with hair glowing in the dark, Nick Wilde and Robin Hood, Maui, sorcerer Mickey, Hercules and Bing Bong. I can't wait to compare some of these to the official ones we're gonna get.

    Anyway, if we're talking wishes and guesses about the poses, then for Tiana, they will probably go with her in the blue dress holding Naveen as a frog. But I'd really love it if they chose the white Almost There dress, with her holding the "Tiana's place" postcard. Or her in the yellow outfit with maybe a baignet, to match the other "peasant" princesses. And of course I'd so want a Charlotte too, but that's pretty impossible.

    For Pocahontas, I'm betting on her holding the compass. Or posing in the colorful wind. Maybe doing the farewell gesture from the ending... Btw, how amazing it would be if the heroes would indeed face the heroines and both her and John would be waving at each other?! A perfect set.

    For Rapunzel, I was gonna say her with a paint brush, but someone said a lantern and yup, they're totally going to use a lantern.

    Also for Anna, I want them to base the pin on the scene with her and the ducklings (goslings?) so badly! That would be an instant grail:
