The long await John Lewis Christmas advert for 2019 has finally been revealed and it features everything from a unique friendship, festive cheer and an excitable dragon who is bound to steal hearts this year.

The high-end department store have enlisted the help of band rock-pop Bastille for its first ever joint Christmas advert with partner Waitrose, and the trio tell a beautiful story of friendship between a young girl and an adorable dragon named Edgar.

Set in a fairytale land, the heartwarming advert depicts the story of a little girl called Ava and a friendship she develops with an enchanting dragon, named Edgar, who simply loves Christmas.

The fun, heartwarming and beautifully created ad follows the pair as Edgar keeps inadvertently burning festive decorations and activities by breathing fire.

After destroying more and more Christmas activities, Edgar shut himself away, until Ava shows the perfect way just how much she cares about him and how his fire-breathing habits can help Christmas.
