Pass the tissues, please!

Disney has released its 2021 Christmas advert and it is simply magical.

This year’s story follows Nicole, the granddaughter from last year’s ad, who is now all grown up with a family to make Christmas traditions with. We follow her and her two adorable children, Max and Ella, as their new stepdad Mike moves into their family home.

The ad sees the family create new Christmas traditions and follow old ones.

The family bonds by reading stories from Max’s magical storybook.

There’s no doubt you’ll have tears in your eyes after watching it.

“The book celebrates how the power of storytelling can deepen family bonds,” Disney shared.

The ad shows “the magic that reading together creates as stories from Disney and Pixar lift off from the pages”.

Gregory Porter sings Love Runs Deeper in the touching advert.

The song was created especially for the Christmas ad.

The ad supports children’s charity Make-A-Wish.

Disney will give support worth more than $2m to Make-A-Wish, and their affiliates around the world.

Disney’s Tasia Filippatos said, “Reading together can be a truly magical experience and our advert celebrates this age-old tradition and the wonder and imagination it inspires.

“We hope the story will resonate with anyone who has seen the magic ‘lift off the pages’ of a book through the eyes of a child.”

Viewers praised Disney for including a blended family in their Christmas ad.

“Coming from a newly blended family, this really made my heart feel warm and fuzzy! Thank you so much for the representation,” one viewer said.

Another added, “Who is cutting onions.”
