During the Disney Parks, Experiences and Products panel at the D23 Expo, it was announced that a brand new series of six stop-motion shorts based on “Duffy & Friends” would be coming to Disney+ next year.
Mickey’s favourite teddy bear, Duffy, is a favourite of fans in all three Disney resorts in Asia. Duffy is the cute, loveable teddy bear handmade as a gift for Mickey by his sweetheart Minnie Mouse. Together, Duffy and Mickey travel the world sharing exciting adventures and making lifelong friends, including ShellieMay, Gelatoni, StellaLou and CookieAnn.
And during “The World of Duffy and Friends Revealed” panel at the D23 Expo, a new brand-new stop motion video called “Lunchbox Mystery,” premiered.
In this story, Duffy’s newest friend, LinaBell, uses her detective dexterity to save the day when Duffy’s lunchbox goes missing. What we all learn from this adventure is that clues to happiness abound, and two of the most critical ones are friends and your genuine care for others. As usual, their ultimate innocence and endless charm keep us smiling. Who doesn’t want friends who are loving, caring, and intelligent?
