Prep & Landing - "Operation Secret Santa"

Postby Charles » Mon Dec 20, 2010 8:18 pm

I was looking for something contemporary to add to this Christmas topic I'm building up...


I thought of Disney's Prep and Landing, and after I saw this short film, I decided it was simply too good not to feature on the AN Forums in a topic of its own.

Uploaded to YouTube by the ABC Network as recently as December 7, it's as beautiful in every way as it is charming. Made all the better as I saw the name of a former student of mine from the Academy listed on the credits for Visual Development.

Enjoy 7 glorious minutes of this remarkable cartoon.
