Learn How Santa’s Visits Run Smoothly with Disney’s Prep & Landing on DVD November 22, 2011
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!
I wasn’t sure what to expect when we popped this video in, but I was hooked immediately. The storyline is adorable… a team of elves that prep the houses before Santa’s visit (checking for creatures a stirring, making sure the tree has clearance for gifts etc) and helping Santa land his sleigh without any catastrophes. The actual Prep & Landing portion of the DVD is a great length for young children. There are bonus features for those of us with longer attention spans that would like to see more of the cute little guys. I’ve added this to our holiday stack of DVDs and I’m sure we will view it several times before Christmas. It’s a keeper!
