(SPOT.ph) We are now several months into the Pinoy Christmas season and Disney just dropped a heartwarming surprise: a short advert with a Filipino storyline! The animation was released on the Disney UK Facebook page on November 9 in support of the Make-A-Wish foundation. Prepare the tissues before you check it out below:
The short begins in the year 1940, where you could spot old-school vehicles and houses, as well as plenty of Christmas lanterns illuminating the streets. We see a young girl receiving a Mickey Mouse stuffed toy from a loved one. Flash forward to 2005 to a row of houses in what must be the U.K., and the little girl is now a grandmother! She shares her beloved stuffed toy with her granddaughter, as well as her parol-making skills, and we watch as the two grow older together—along with the much loved Mickey Mouse.
Disney closes the sweet advert with a simple "From our family to yours." Before you start tearing up at the amount of parols you're seeing, note that the commercial was made for charity! The touching track was sung by rising UK artist Griff and is entitled "Love Is A Compass," according to Digital Spy. All proceeds from the charity track made from downloads before December 31 will go to the Make-A-Wish foundation.
