To mark the holiday season, Disney released its 2022 Christmas advert named ‘The Gift’ which shares a powerful story of togetherness denoting a key message on the importance of family during a time of big changes.
The project is the final and third installment of Disney's ‘From Our Family To Yours’ series.
The heartwarming story connects the three ads and is about Nicole and her family who are preparing for a new addition to the family. However, not everyone is ready for change, at least not her daughter, little Ella.
According to Disney:
In the ad, we can see Max, Ella’s brother, giving her a Mickey Mouse toy to comfort her at night when she feels lonely. Then, when the baby arrives, Ella passes the toy on to her sibling as a gift to welcome them into the family.
The song played in the advertisement is the emotional soundtrack “A Little More” performed by Jessica Darrow which as Disney announces was “penned exclusively for the advert by LA-based songwriters PARKWILD, Sofia Quinn and Rose Tan.”
