Disney’sreleased to Blu-ray & DVD combo pack on November 6, just in time to ready homes around the globe for Santa’s Christmas arrival.
The TOTALLY TINSEL Collection contains TWO 23-minute holiday adventures—“Prep & Landing” and “Prep & Landing: Naughty vs. Nice”—and a slew of entertaining extras that will turn anyone on your naughty list into a jolly old elf, er person.
In “Prep & Landing,” the first of the series, a high-tech team of North Pole elves from the elite Prep & Landing unit sets out on Christmas Eve to prepare homes around the world for Santa’s landing. Wayne, an experienced elf is dejected because he was passed over for a promotion and has lost interest in doing his job well. When his attitude nearly “figgy puddings” a little boy’s Christmas, Wayne’s new, rookie partner Lanny reminds him that Christmas is not about selfish desires, but about giving and sharing and making holiday wishes come true. The pair must face unexpected challenges and overcome great obstacles to keep Santa on course and bring a memorable day to little Timmy and children all over the world.
The yuletide adventures of Lanny and Wayne continue in “Prep & Landing: Naughty vs. Nice.” The special ops pair has been called in for a dangerous mission—to retrieve an elf communicator from a child on the naughty list. Santa’s stealthiest little elves partner with a naughty list expert, one of the coal elves who happens to be Wayne’s “little” brother (or little bother, in Wayne’s opinion), and together they must race to stop Christmas from descending into chaos. It’s a comical adventure that warms the heart, brings families together, and shows us that there’s room for everyone on the nice list.
TOTALLY TINSEL is certainly a new holiday viewing tradition for our family. Both films are fun and entertaining and encourage good attitudes, compassion, and self-lessness at a time of year when people sometimes tend to get lost in “me-ness.” My kids really got a kick out of the bonus material, like the commercials, newsreels, and elf training video clips that resemble old filmstrips. The TOTALLY TINSEL Collection is definitely on our holiday must-watch list, and I recommend you add it to yours too!
