I love Christmas movies, and this Christmas movie is totally tinsel. Santa’s elves are on the scene just in time to get you ready for the big guy’s arrival in Disney’s Prep and Landing now available on DVD. First premiering in 2009 during ABC Family’s 25 Days of Christmas, I have been in love with this cartoon for two years, and I was THRILLED to learn that it was finally coming out on DVD this year. (Now I can stop stalking ABC Family to find out when it will air to DVR it!)
Prep and Landing quickly became a Christmas favorite in our house (like from the moment we first saw it!). The Christmasy combo of hilarious characters, a smart plot line and witty inside Christmas jokes make for a great Christmas cartoon. Even my bah-humbug father is a fan of Prep and Landing (having been forced to sit and watch it with his granddaughter last Christmas). I could watch Prep and Landing over and over. Oh wait, I do!
Prep and 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, and elf named Wayne is upset when he doesn’t receive an expected promotion. Instead he is partnered with an idealistic rookie elf named Lanny to execute a special Christmas 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. But in the end, these two elves work together to guide Santa through a raging snowstorm in order to save Christmas.
The only problem with Prep and Landing is that the 22-minute running time will leave you wanting more! (The good news is that the length is perfect for little ones.) A short sequel (referred to as a stocking stuffer short), Operation: Secret Santa, aired last last Christmas and is also included on the DVD (it is about 5 minutes). I am THRILLED that a new 22-minute sequel, Prep & Landing: Naughty vs. Nice, is set to air December 5, 2011 on ABC. I.Can.Not.Wait.
