Disney’s holiday ad is a sweet tale about storytelling and family bonding

Haven’t you heard? Now that Halloween is over (sob), we’re officially in the “All I Want For Christmas Is You” season of the year. Here to herald the start of the holiday season is Disney’s festive advert, which explores the power of storytelling.

The Stepdad is a three-minute animated video about the magic of reading for a young family. The film is a sequel to last year’s Lola advert, which celebrated the traditions passed down from generation to generation.

This year’s advert features Nicole, who’s the granddaughter from last year’s advert. She’s now all grown up and a mum to Max and Ella and partner to Mike, the step-dad of her two kids. The story shows what happens when Mike moves into the family home and begins to bond with Max and Ella.

The tale revolves around a storybook given to Max by his birth dad, and how reading the book brings Mike, Max, and Ella closer.

Grammy winner Gregory Porter sings an original track “Love Runs Deeper”, which will be available to download from 3 Nov. 2021, with 100 percent of the proceeds to be donated to Make-A-Wish, Disney’s partner charity.
