A GIRL cuddles a Mickey Mouse doll — and connects with her gran — in Disney’s 2020 Christmas advert.
The animation short marks the company’s 40-year partnership with charity Make-A-Wish.
It tells how the Mickey Mouse toy was gifted to gran Lola as a child by her father in 1940 and symbolises her relationship with her granddaughter.
The doll is available to buy online with money going to Make-A-Wish, which helps fulfil the wishes of critically ill children.
The singer-songwriter, originally from Kings Langley, Hertfordshire, described the advert as “the happy ending everybody wants to see” while families remain apart due to Covid-19.

Ivor Novello Rising Star nominee Griff told the PA news agency: “It’s the happy ending everybody wants to see.
“Right now at this time it feels very timely and people are going to watch it and crave to be together and want to be together. Definitely when I was watching it.
“It’s so important to give a message of hope and realise that we will all reconnect at some point. When I watched it I just loved it.”
