Last year’s emotional Disney Christmas ad captured the love between a grandmother and granddaughter, summing up so many of our 2020 emotions, and the 2021 version is no different!

Shining the spotlight on another family dynamic – the stepdad – this year’s Disney Christmas ad is incredibly poignant with a soundtrack from the amazing Gregory Porter.

Family Dynamics in the Disney Christmas Ad

In the three-minute short, we once again meet Nicole, the granddaughter from last year’s ad. This time she is grown up with her own children, Max and Ella, and the young family is learning to adjust to life once stepdad Mike and his cheeky dog move in.

Negotiating the emotions, family dynamics and new role of a step parent is no easy task, particularly with the traditions and memories brought about by Christmas.

As always, Disney brings an air of magic to proceedings, with our favourite Disney characters seen jumping off the storybook pages. But the real tug on the heartstrings comes from Love Runs Deeper, the soundtrack from Gregory Porter which will raise funds for the Make a Wish foundation.

Disney says: “At the heart of the story is a very special storybook – a precious item belonging to Max from his birth father.”

“The book celebrates the power of storytelling and how it can deepen family bonds; as the family are shown delighting in the magic of Disney storytelling, beautiful animation springs off the pages, igniting the true spirit of Christmas.”

“Follow their emotional journey as we see them combine existing festive traditions with wonderful new ones.”
