Premiering its first footage at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Prep and Landing is Disney’s first computer-animated television special. Based on a idea from Chris Williams (Bolt), it tells the story of two elves, Wayne (Dave Foley) and Lanny (Derek Richardson) who work for the elite North Pole Christmas Eve Command Center. Under the watchful eye of the Command Center Coordinator, Magee (Sarah Chalke), they are advance scouts who prepare homes for Santa’s visits.
Prep and Landing will air December 1 on ABC. Hit the jump to check out the trailer along with my brief thoughts on it.
After The Santa Clause 3, I became a little skeptical about Disney’s ability to pull off a good Christmas story. However, with plenty of fun technology, a little high-octane action and, of course, the Spirit of Christmas, this trailer looks great and I am looking forward to watching Prep and Landing next week.
