In Disney Junior’s brand-new spot debuting Monday, April 13, Mickey Mouse and favorite characters from Doc McStuffins; Vampirina; Elena of Avalor; Mira, Royal Detective; and more come together to deliver an inspiring message for the youngest of fans: We’re all in this together! While kids may need to stay at home during this difficult time, Mickey and friends encourage them to look for ways to help each other; to call friends and family who they miss; and to talk with a grown-up about how they might be feeling.
The spot is part of Disney Channel’s “We’re All in This Together” initiative—#WAITT—which features messages that demonstrate for viewers of all ages that, even if they’re away from people they love, they’re not alone right now. The spot begins airing on Monday, but we’re bringing you an early look now:
“In the spirit of spreading some joy and comfort among our preschool audience and their parents during this difficult time, we at Disney Junior created this spot to remind families that they are not alone, and that we’re all in this together,” said Joe D’Ambrosia, senior vice president, Original Programming and general manager, Disney Junior. “We hope familiar faces like Mickey Mouse, Doc McStuffins, and our newest royal detective, Mira, will bring a sense of ease and perhaps spark a smile.”
