The hope of a return to normal also passes through the newsstands. In advance, as it should be, compared to the arrival in cinemas, here is the sticker album of the new Disney film! From the authors of Oceania the premises are very good for it to become one of the most interesting of the new classics, after the splendid Luca set in Italy.
Beware of spoilers! The main problem with early release is to find out the story before going to see the film at the cinema. In fact, the album tells the adventures of Mirabel, our protagonist, from the Liguria Region of the previous cartoon, this time we move to Colombia.
Perhaps the setting of the album is precisely so as not to tell too much about the film, if not through the images of the stickers. The various pages of the album are in fact an explosion of stickers, the captions become less and less as the pages are turned, but they are still functional for a pleasant reading of the story.
Of course, the many shaped stickers made our eyes shine, some really funny and multiple, Mirabel’s “casita” even contains 9 in one page! In reality, the stickers on the album are not very many, 168 plus those for the central poster, but the graphic layout suggests that there are so many to stick to.
As is now customary we also have the set of cards, 50. Too many, although well made. Not an absolute novelty but very nice the solution for the last 16 (C35-C50) that are to be colored. An idea that goes very well with the setting of both the film and the very colorful album itself.
While waiting to see the film at the cinema, we refrained from reading the progress of the album page by page and consequently our review cannot be too specific. Interesting album, we hope it can take advantage of a different and more carefree period, unlike the previous Luca who should have had better luck.
