The Disney Princess range is being rebranded as Disney in 2017, perhaps in an effort to offer greater appeal to boys as well as girls.

Three sets have been revealed today, including two Palace Pets sets, 41147 Anna's Snow Adventure and 41148 Elsa's Magical Ice Palace, an updated and significantly improved version of 41062 Elsa's Sparkling Ice Castle from 2015. You will find images of them all after the break...

@Huw You should combine the Disney and Disney Princess themes into a single theme. Otherwise, it's going to get quite annoying as time goes on to not see the commingled.

I find it interesting they did another Ice Castle, considering they just released #41062 last year. However, the new one looks to be a huge improvement.

Elsa's palace is a cash cow for Lego. This new, much stronger version will surely capitalize on the still huge interest in the Frozen movie. Elsa's Marshmallow monster looks weird though.

With LEGO's seemingly endless ability to keep churning out new moulds, why don't they create a unique hairpiece for Elsa reflecting her characteristic over-the-front-shoulder plait of hair? :P

I'm pleasantly surprised with the Elsa Castle Mk 2. There's some obvious quirks and the stupid use of lavender is annoying, but I think visually it looks rather full which is something that couldn't necessarily be said about version 1. The first set did feel a bit rushed--considering it was late to the Frozen cash in, and this feels like what would of been had Lego/everyone anticipated the movie's selling power earlier.

I'm happy this castle finally has doors (otherwise how else will Elsa keep my orcs out), and I suspect that it may use the same "open door magically" feature as seen in the Elves Ragana castle. I do wish it contained perhaps a new character (cough Hans) in addition to the brick-built Marshmallow, but either way I think I'll pick it up.

Anecdote(s) re: Elsa Castle 2/Marshmallow: I bought the original Ice Castle on sale and, after finishing it, thought I should have bought two to build a decently sized version of it.

The same time my daughter got it (as an Easter present last year), I got the Ideas Exo Suit, which promptly had to stand in for the snow golem. The dark gray did not quite fit, but that did not bother my daughter much (the Exo Suit's instability was a somewhat bigger issue).

The new ice palace set looks amazing! Mind you, I don't know if we REALLY needed a new one so soon, but it's a huge improvement over the original version. I agree with @Tim Lydy that it feels like what the original might have been with a longer development timetable. And it has Marshmallow!

I'm not a fan of Palace Pets. It feels to me like a really clumsy extension of the Disney Princess brand — if it focused on the characters' actual pets and animal companions from the movies, it might be a different story, but instead it replaces them with strangely-colored pets that feel like a transparent attempt to compete with Littlest Pet Shop. The Palace Pets sets also generally feel lackluster compared to other Friends, Elves, and Disney Princess sets. I'm sure there are kids who love them, though, and I suppose that's what matters most.

I Know this doesn't have anything to do with Disney sets but i saw that there were many 2017 sets for star wars. Are some of the them Winter (January) and some summer sets? If so which ones are which?

Fwiw, my four year old is crazy for the palace pets sets, eager whenever she gets $5 for one (at least they're not pricey!). She's definitely their target audience, and they're reaching her very well!

This could be a good castle for the collectable minifigure ice queen.

41147 Anna's Snow Adventure is the biggest waste of a set possible for this theme. :P I mean surly a Snow White set this size with a deer would sell just as well? :S

@MBJosh04 well, Disney own Star Wars now, so they are closely associated ;) but I know what you mean, they've nothing to do with the Disney (Princess) line

(...unless you consider my sister Princess (now General) Leia to be a Disney princess now...) (...I'll stop...)

Yet another Frozen ice castle, eh? Does anyone else think Lego's design team just needs a holiday for a bit?

The Ice Palace looks great. Love all the translucent blue pieces.

Loving this ice palace. I liked the ice castle this year, but it just was not interesting enough to justify getting it. But maybe next year I might be persuaded by this.

The lilac on the ice castle is an odd design choice. Surely it would be vastly improved if they were the same light aqua as the top of the castle.

Elsas Castle is Fantastic! But marshmallow is weak

My daughter is psyched about the new Snow Castle, but we're both frustrated by the fact that after several Frozen sets we still only have several different versions of Anna and Elsa. Where's Han's, Kristoff, the Trading Post guy (and his family in the sauna), Palace Guards, Palace Servants, Villagers, etc.? My daughter and I have found the lack of other characters to be dissapointing and odd in the full size dolls as well. Disney, you are a marketing mystery at times.
