VIDEO: Disney Releases Touching Holiday Animated Short and Mickey Mouse Plush
Disney releases heart touching 3-minute Holiday Animated Short titled “From Our Family to Yours”. The short was created as a continued celebration of the 40-year anniversary between Disney and Make-A-Wish. Along with this brand-new animated short is a lovable Mickey Mouse plush – which unlocks yet another donation to Make-A-Wish.
This animated short highlights festive traditions and shared experiences that connect generations and make lifelong memories. It features two new lovable characters, Lola and her granddaughter, alongside a familiar friend – Mickey Mouse.
“Christmas is a time for giving and giving back, and we’re delighted to debut this festive ad campaign supporting our long-term charity partner Make-A-Wish,” said Tasia Filippatos, SVP, Disney EMEA. “Our goal was to tell a universal story that inspires through the themes of family, love and special holiday traditions.”
Check out this touching animated short and be sure to have tissues at the ready:
Love the soundtrack as much as I do? It’s the new “Love Is A Compass” single performed by Griff, a 19-year-old British singer-songwriter whose powerful vocals support the moving animation. Griff has recently been nominated for a prestigious Ivor Novello award for Rising Star. You can listen to the heart-warming single on all digital provider services – wherever you stream music!
Want your own adorable Mickey Mouse plush seen in the animated short? It’s available now online at shopDisney.com and across the pond at Disney stores in Europe and online at shopDisney.co.uk. The best part? For every Mickey Mouse Vintage Holiday Plush sold through Jan. 31, 2021, shopDisney will donate 25% of the purchase price to Make-A-Wish to help grant wishes.
The short was produced by New Zealand-based animation studio Flux, marking the 40th anniversary of Disney’s partnership with the non-profit Make-A-Wish Foundation, which raises funds to help fulfill the wishes of children – between the ages of 2 1/2 and 18 years old – with a critical illness. In conjunction with the From Our Family release, the foundation will be selling the vintage-inspired Mickey Mouse plush toys depicted in the short. Disney will follow suit with $1 donations to the foundation every time the hashtag #LoveFromDisney is shared on social media alongside a festive holiday memory.
The Wishes Come True Blue color collection and Mickey Mouse vintage holiday plush are just part of our anniversary celebration. Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for a first look at another drop coming in Dec. and visit Wish.org/Disney to learn more!
