Update 9/2/16: The new LEGO Cinderella Castle (set #71040) is now officially on sale at the LEGO Shop for $349.99 (not incl tax/shipping). It looks amazing. It should be noted that many of the early reviews are saying that this is an advanced build and not recommended for small children, which is to be expected, I guess, with 4,000 pieces!

Original post 4/19/2016: The LEGO collector world is abuzz these days with rumors that a new Disney set will be released later on this year and speculation about what it could be. The strongest rumors lately have been that it will be a replica of the Magic Kingdom’s Cinderella’s Castle along with new minifigure characters.
If it is a LEGO Cinderellas Castle, it will likely be a very large and expensive set. Of course, this all comes as the new LEGO Disney minifigures are about to be released.
