Both on 3/15 apparently.Is that Land March 1-15 then Nemo 15-30? Does that mean the new neighborhood will be on April 1?
When Moana released in 2020, it was the one that stayed around the longest of that wave. Living Seas was gone hours before Moana was.If they are truly limiting it to 16 prints for the serigraph series then it seems like we'll see 1 per month for the 1st two of the quarter with 2 on the final month of the quarter. Maybe the first two are for ones with higher anticipated demand while the last two have lower anticipated demand and they are thinking Cyclops can handle the workload of both posters?
We know from 2020 they can handle at least @ 1200 each monthly drop. We also know the team is willing to attempt to change the plan mid run due to the qty changes last year.
It'll be interesting to see the numbering on each of them when they finally ship. What will also be interesting will be the less popular prints will have lower run numbers possibly making them harder to find in the future for any completists that missed the drop.
I've got one additional theory on the release schedule I'll save for another post...
I think Soarin' will do much better then Moana because the attraction is iconic and it also exists. The Land will probably do just as well and possibly better. Nemo...uuuhh...eh.
I'd want to say the the concern on doing everything for a date limited run is the fact it's unpredictable and not many are made prior to the order page going up (note the 5 to 6 week shipment time for Moana and Soarin'). Example, Moana sells 150 so it seems like they can increase the posters per month. Then Soarin' itself sells 600+. Then you have The Land selling 800+ with the addition of Nemo selling 200+. All with more inks and more QA during the printing process.
They can do it but they also only have so much time.
