The Celebration of 40 Years of Disney and Make-A-Wish Continues with New Animated Short and Mickey Mouse Plush
From the Disney Parks Blog and written by: Anthony Armenia
Following the debut of the popular Wishes Come True Blue color collection, we continue to celebrate the 40-year anniversary of Disney and Make-A-Wish® with a lovable Mickey Mouse plush – which unlocks yet another donation to Make-A-Wish – along with a brand-new animated short!
The holidays are the perfect time for giving and of course, giving back. This holiday season, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products is launching a three-minute animated short entitled “From Our Family to Yours.” This animated short highlights festive traditions and shared experiences that connect generations and make lifelong memories. It features two new lovable characters, Lola and her granddaughter, alongside a familiar friend – Mickey Mouse.
Check out this touching animated short and be sure to have tissues at the ready:
Love the soundtrack as much as I do? It’s the new “Love Is A Compass” single performed by Griff, a 19-year-old British singer-songwriter whose powerful vocals support the moving animation. Griff has recently been nominated for a prestigious Ivor Novello award for Rising Star. You can listen to the heart-warming single on all digital provider services – wherever you stream music!
Want your own adorable Mickey Mouse plush seen in the animated short? It’s available now online at shopDisney.com and across the pond at Disney stores in Europe and online at shopDisney.co.uk. The best part? For every Mickey Mouse Vintage Holiday Plush sold through Jan. 31, 2021, shopDisney will donate 25% of the purchase price to Make-A-Wish to help grant wishes.
The Wishes Come True Blue color collection and Mickey Mouse vintage holiday plush are just part of our anniversary celebration. Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for a first look at another drop coming in Dec. and visit Wish.org/Disney to learn more!
