Disney’s three-minute animated short film tells a grandmother and her granddaughter’s heartwarming story and the family traditions that connect them through the years. The short film also pays homage to Filipino Christmas traditions and characters set in a fictionalized Philippines on Christmas eve.

The moving story shows the touching tale of a special bond between a Filipino child and her grandmother, Lola, with the well-known friend Mickey Mouse – a popular toy that her father gave Lola as a small child. The opening scene shows streets in the 1940s decorated with Parol lanterns when Lola received her father’s gift.

“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,” said Disney.

“From our family to yours, watch this all-new Disney festive story. Because you never forget your favourite traditions,” Disney added.

As part of Disney’s festive retail campaign “From Our Family To Yours,” the ad marks the 40-year partnership with the children’s charity Make-A-Wish. Disney fans in participating countries will be able to purchase the vintage Mickey Mouse toy featured in the film advertisement benefitting the charity organization.

In the short animation film, we can hear the original song written by the songwriting/production team PARKWILD, “Love Is A Compass,” played by Griff, British artist, and Ivor Novello Rising Star nominee, which will be released as a charity single. Griff, who was thrilled to be involved in the campaign, said the track’s lyrics and storytelling in the commercials were “powerful and important.”
