Prep & Landing is an adorable holiday story about a high-tech team of elves who ensure homes around the world are properly prepared for their visit from Santa. After working for a tireless 227 years, an elf named Wayne (voiced by Dave Foley) is upset when he doesn’t receive an expected promotion. Instead he is partnered with an idealistic rookie elf named Lanny (voiced by Derek Richardson) to execute a special Christmas Eve mission. While on their mission, Wayne and Lanny encounter unexpected challenges that push them to their limits and ultimately threaten Christmas for children around the world. But in the end, these two elves work together to guide Santa through a raging snowstorm in order to save Christmas.
Prep & Landing first debuted in 2009 as ABC TV’s first animated television special produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and features a huge cast of voice talents including David DeLuise, Nathan Greno, and Derek Richardson. It was an instant hit among viewers and was also the highest kids rating for any primetime telecast on TV in 2009!

We first watched Prep & Landing when it first debuted in 2009. It was an instant hit with my family and one that we have added to our must see Christmas movies. I was very excited to see that they were finally releasing this Christmas tale onto DVD so that my kids and I can watch it anytime we like. It’s a very cute film and the bonus shorts are great! We had actually already seen Operation Secret Santa (featuring the voice of Betty White) but Tiny’s Big Adventure was a first for our family and was a great addition to this DVD.
