Disney has launched its 2020 Christmas Advert, telling a heartwarming story of a grandmother’s relationship with her granddaughter, while also highlighting the beauty of family traditions during the holiday season.
For most of us, Disney has played quite a crucial role in our childhoods. We saw Mulan fight with honour, we wept as Simba left Mufasa’s side, and felt empowered as Pocahontas championed peace.
While times change and people grow, beloved family traditions make lifelong memories that cross generations and hold us together, especially over the festive period.
Lola and her granddaughter share a love of Disney and Christmas crafting, but over time their yearly ritual of making star lanterns begins to fade away. Looking back into Lola’s past and seeing her grandmother’s much-loved Mickey Mouse inspires her granddaughter to create a festive surprise that lights up her Christmas morning and renews their special bond.
Disney once told us ‘a dream is a wish your heart makes,’ and for this year’s Christmas season, Disney has partnered up with Make-A-Wish. All people have to do is share a family festive memory on their socials, tagging #LoveFromDisney – after which, Disney will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish on your behalf.
