What is the John Lewis & Partners Christmas advert 2019 about?

This year’s Christmas advert is all about #ExcitableEdgar. Excitable Edgar is really cute dragon, accompanied by a young girl called Ava. As they’re walking into town, Edgar melts a snowman with his dragon fire. Then he sets fire to the outdoor ice rink, melting it away. Then he sets alight the village’s all new Christmas tree. It’s not long before Edgar is public enemy number one.

He goes into hiding and Ava waits outside his house until he comes out again. Then she buys him a present and he finally emerges. Ava takes him for Christmas dinner with all the villagers, who are obviously very scared he’s going to burn the place down. But Edgar uses his dragon fire skills to light the Christmas pudding. It’s 10/10 for cuteness.
