Disney’s animated short, From Our Family To Yours debuted on Disney+ earlier this month and has already become a sensation. Racking up over three million views in Australia and New Zealand since launch, this heartwarming three-minute short film was created to lift people’s spirits ahead of the holidays and after the YEAR that 2020 has been.
From Our Family To Yours tells the story of a grandmother, her granddaughter and family tradition. Beginning in 1940 when Lola is given a plush Mickey by her father, through the years, she shares the toy and her traditions with her granddaughter.
With each passing year, Lola’s Mickey plush reminds her of her childhood and the short evolves into present day, showing the connection she has with her grandaughter, which ultimately goes onto inspire Lola’s granddaughter to throw a festive surprise for her on Christmas morning.
