Disney released an animated holiday short film recently which is part of a marketing campaign called, From Our Family To Yours, and it was described as a “Disney festive story” that was made because “you never forget your favorite traditions.”
The short film tells the touching story “the themes of traditions, family togetherness and nostalgia, and introduces two new characters – a grandmother, Lola, and her granddaughter – alongside familiar friend Mickey Mouse who features as a much-loved toy, gifted to Lola as a young child by her father in 1940. With each passing year, Mickey comes to symbolize Lola’s childhood and a present-day connection to her granddaughter, ultimately inspiring a festive surprise on Christmas morning.”
You’re gonna need a tissue for this film for sure because it hits all the sentiments. The ad marks the 40-year partnership with the children’s charity, Make-A-Wish, and will run across TV and Digital, plus Disney’s own channels.
You can also buy the limited-edition vintage Mickey Mouse soft toy featured in the advertisement from The Disney Store and ShopDisney.co.uk, benefiting Make-A-Wish organizations.
The short also features a song by UK artist and Ivor Novello Rising Star nominee, Griff (19), who performs Love Is A Compass written by songwriting/production team, Parkwild. “The charity track will also be available for sale and download from 9 November. For every download before 31 December 2020, 100% of the proceeds from the retail price will be donated to Make-A-Wish.”
Disney wants you to go to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter to share their own festive memories using #LoveFromDisney. For each special memory shared, Disney will give $1USD to Make-A-Wish (up to $100,000).
