Disney Drops Its 2021 Christmas Advert - And It's Magical

Disney has just released its Christmas 2021 advert - and it's so magical.

The tear-jerking ad, titled 'The Stepdad', is a sequel to last year's festive advert, which told the adorable story of Lola and her granddaughter, Nicole.

This time, Nicole is older, with children of her own - Max and Ella. The animated tale tells the story of how they adjust to new stepdad Mike moving into the family home.

At the heart of the tale is a special Disney storybook, which was given to Max by his birth dad.

Disney explain: "The book celebrates how the power of storytelling can deepen family bonds, and the magic that reading together creates as stories from Disney and Pixar lift off from the pages igniting the family’s shared imagination and wonder." 

Viewers will watch as the four navigate their new family life, enjoying existing festive traditions and making new ones, too.

Alongside the heartwarming ad, double Grammy Award winner Gregory Porter provides the soundtrack - 'Love Runs Deeper' which was created for the ad.

The advert premieres on Wednesday and supports Disney's long-standing partner, Make-A-Wish, helping the charity to create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.

'Love Runs Deeper' is available for download from 3rd November, and for every download before 31st November 2021, all proceeds will be donated to Make-A-Wish International.

Speaking about the track, Gregory said: “The lyrics of the track are so powerful, and underline that behind everything there is love.

"When I read the first line of ‘Love Runs Deeper’, 'When you open the door, I will be standing there', I was truly moved by its emotion and storytelling. I knew I needed to be involved with this campaign and support Make-A-Wish.”

Meanwhile, Tasia Filippatos, SVP Disney EMEA said of the ad: “We’re delighted to once again support long term charity partner Make-A-Wish through our Holiday campaign. 

"Reading together can be a truly magical experience and our advert celebrates this age-old tradition and the wonder and imagination it inspires. We hope the story will resonate with anyone who has seen the magic ‘lift off the pages’ of a book through the eyes of a child.” 

Fans will also be able to purchase a Skating Minnie Mouse soft toy and journal inspired by the ad, available from shopDisney.
