Disney’s Prep & Landing DVD Review


This coming holiday, Disney invites audiences of all ages to make Prep & Landing (the all-new modern classic Christmas tale) part of their family’s “must own” holiday-viewing collection!  Prep & Landing is the perfect blend of Christmas spirit, humor and entertaining characters that will keep the entire family grinning from ear-to-ear. Complete with two new bonus shorts – “Tiny’s Big Adventure” and “Operation Secret Santa” (which features Betty White as the voice of Mrs. Clause)

PREP & LANDING is an adorable holiday story about a high-tech team of elves who ensure homes around the world are properly prepared for their visit from Santa. After working for a tireless 227 years, an elf named Wayne, voiced by Dave Foley (Disney●Pixar’s A Bug’s Life, Toy Story 2, Cars), is upset when he doesn’t receive an expected promotion. Instead he is partnered with an idealistic rookie elf named Lanny, voiced by Derek Richardson (TV’s “Men in Trees”), to execute a special Christmas Eve mission. While on their journey, Wayne and Lanny encounter unexpected challenges that push them to their limits and ultimately threaten Christmas for children around the world. Bonus features include entertaining Elf training videos shot in Santa’s workshop, “Operation Secret Santa” and much more!

My thoughts

When my eldest son was much younger we started gathering around the fire to watch Christmas specials together.  We don’t normally watch TV in the evening together, but we make a special effort this time of year.  My son who was around three years old at the time had never seen commercials before.  Whenever he previously watched TV it had been only by DVD’s.  He was fascinated.  He inadvertently started calling our Christmas specials, Christmas commercials.  Since that year we always call our TV Christmas shows, Christmas commercials.

I distinctly remember when we first saw a commercial for the new Christmas special “Prep & Landing”.  My husband, son and myself were immediately intrigued.  High-tech elves!  Awesome!  We have watched this show every year since.  It easily became one our favorite “Christmas commercials”.   Now we own the DVD, even better!  My boys already familiar with the story really love the extras.

Check out the new sequel to Prep & Landing called Prep & Landing: Naughty vs. Nice on December 5th on ABC!
