It’s time to get a bit more insight into the backstory of Lorcana with a website update!
Edit: The Story page is now officially up with the English version as well!
A new page titled “Story” has been added to the Disney Lorcana website!
Once upon a time
there was a vast nebula of stars containing beloved stories. Enchanted by the lore they contained, a powerful Curator built a magic forge to observe the stars and record each tale. They called this place the Great Illuminary. The Curator used magic inks to illuminate the characters in each story, bringing them to life with a magic called Lorcana. Thus, they became the first illumineer.
A SWIRL OF COLORFUL STARLIGHT APPEARS,
growing brighter and brighter until it is all you can see. When the burst of light subsides, you find yourself in a wondrous new place. Welcome to the Great Illuminary, the center of a magical realm called Lorcana.
The Illuminary summoned you here because of your powerful imagination. You follow a pulsing line of light through curving hallways and numerous rooms to emerge into a vast atrium. A mechanism there towers over an open book. Sparkling down from above is a stream of colorful story stars, each containing fragments of Disney stories.
These glimmers shared the lore and tales of their worlds. For centuries, the Curator chronicled the contents of the story stars, archiving the records within the Illuminary’s walls. Brimming with the power of these stories, the Great Illuminary took on a life of its own.

Long ago, the Curator vanished and their magic began to fade. The last remnants of that magic call out from the Illuminary, looking for brave and imaginative individuals to continue the Curator’s work.
Nearby, a unique tool catches your eye. It’s an inkcaster, and when you pick it up, it feels both exciting and familiar. Instinctively, you hold it high above the open book. Magical ink pulsing with energy flows through the mechanism and combines with the light from a story star on a page of the lorebook in front of you, creating an image of a Disney character. With the power of your inkcaster, the image rises off the page. This is a glimmer, a new version of the character that only exists in this world. As an Illumineer, you can create glimmers of characters and items to add to the lore of Lorcana—a treasure that must be preserved and protected at all costs.
Soon, other Illumineers across the globe will be called to the aid of Lorcana. You’ll summon glimmers to quest with you as you search for missing lore in a race against time. Only together can you protect this wondrous realm from threats.
