Disney has announced at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival that it has greenlighted a brand new “Prep & Landing” holiday special, which is called “Prep & Landing: The Snowball Protocol”.

In this new instalment of the Emmy-winning holiday specials, the high-tech team of elves from the elite unit known as Prep and Landing is back! When their holiday missions go awry, Wayne thinks he is in BIG trouble with Santa, which opens a vault of merry mishaps from the past. It’s going to be hard to dig their way out of the snowbank this time in “Prep & Landing: The Snowball Protocol.”

This brand-new animated special is 22 minutes long and has been produced by Disney Television Animation.   The executive producers include Kevin Deters and Stevie Wermers-Skelton.  Colleen Evanson worked as the story editor/co-producer, and Melissa Kurtz produced the special.  It was also revealed that Hilary Helding wrote the special and that Shane Zalvin directed it.

Disney has announced that the special will debut on Disney+ next year, so it’s likely not to hit Disney+ until December 2025.  The previous “Prep & Landing” specials are also available to stream now on Disney+.

Roger’s Take:  I’ve loved the previous “Prep & Landing” shorts and Disney even have small event take place during the holidays every year at Hollywood Studios called “Jingle Bell, Jingle Bam”, which is themed around these characters, so it makes sense to lean in on this franchise for some holiday fun.

Are you excited about the return of “Prep & Landing”?  Let me know on social media!
