Disney Helps Grant Wishes Across The World
Have you seen the animated short?
From Our Family To Yours
Our friends at Disney have launched a magical festive campaign sequel, 'From Our Family To Yours', in support of Make-A-Wish. It includes the launch of a new brand advert "The Stepdad", an animated tale about the power of family togetherness and storytelling.
Following the success of last year’s campaign, “The Stepdad” introduces a now grown-up Nicole, and her two children Max and Ella, as step-dad Mike moves into their family home.
At the heart of the story is a very special storybook – a precious item belonging to son Max from his birth father. The book deepens the family bonds as magical stories lift off from the pages igniting their shared imagination and wonder. You can watch the video here.
Spot the hidden Easter Eggs
Throughout the advert, eagle-eyed viewers will also be able to spot a number of hidden Disney and Make-A-Wish ‘Easter Eggs’.
The Easter Eggs include two artworks created by wish children; 13-year-old Dylan whose picture of a cheetah can be seen on the family’s fridge, and a rainbow from eight-year-old Bethany which can be spotted on a shelf in the children’s bedroom.
Dylan’s wish to be an animator was fulfilled by Flux Animation Studios, the producers behind this year’s Disney advert. With 15 operations to-date, Dylan discovered that drawing was one passion he could do no matter where he was, even in a hospital waiting room. The granting of this wish has solidified his dream further to pursue a career as an animator or graphic artist.
