With its 2010 Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program, Disney had an instant classic in Prep & Landing. Good news is Disney released this CG Lasseter short to DVD along with bonuses Operation Secret Santa and Tiny’s Big Adventure November 22, 2011. It is a family favorite well worth watching again and again. It has everything – a fresh script, thoughtful moments, chuckles, and a hint of adult slapstick.
About the feature:
It’s Christmas Eve for the elves who prep and land for Santa’s big night. After 227 years on the job, Wayne (Dave Foley) is peeved his old partner not him was promoted to Director of Naughty List Intelligence and his attitude shows it. Then new partner Lanny (Derek Richardson) doing everything alone and big snow storm jeopardize Christmas. Wayne feels guilty when he hears Timmy and sets things right. Timmy has a merry Christmas and Wayne gets a new job as Director of Nice List Intelligence, which he refuses. He likes working with Lanny.
