Disney Christmas Advert trilogy
Disney launches magical final instalment of ‘From Our Family To Yours’ Christmas advert trilogy in support of Make-A-Wish
Disney’s first-ever Christmas advert, ‘Lola’ was released in 2020. In this first installment, fans were introduced to Nicole and her grandmother, Lola, and watched how their bond deepened as festive traditions were passed down through the generations.
Last year’s sequel, ‘The Stepdad’, followed a grown-up Nicole and her children, Max and Ella, who welcomed stepdad, Mike, into their home. At the heart of the story was a unique storybook celebrating the magic that small moments like reading together create for families.
Both the 2020 and 2021 adverts reached over 184 million views worldwide combined.
This year, Disney Christmas Advert 2022, the family is preparing for another festive period and the touching arrival of a new baby!

“The Gift” is a powerful story of sibling relationships, experienced through the eyes of the youngest child Ella, as she adjusts to the changing family dynamic. At the story’s heart is a beloved glow-in-the-dark Mickey Mouse soft toy, which connects the past, present, and future. While the elder brother, Max, is first shown giving Ella the Mickey Mouse to comfort her at night, Ella then gifts the soft toy to her newborn sibling at their first meet, welcoming them to the family.
“The Gift” has been developed and produced by Disney’s Consumer Products, Gaming & Publishing creative team, led by Angela Affinita, Director of Brand Marketing and Creative, in partnership with Flux Animation Studios in New Zealand.

It was such a wonderful song to perform, and I can’t wait for everyone to see the heart-warming story which concludes this inspiring trilogy.”
