Magic Wand, GMA Christmas 2016 Finale of Magic ng Pasko

A cute young boy (who looks a little like Harry Potter) discovers a Magic Wand in his room. He puts a spell on his toys which multiplies in quantity. What he does with them would melt your heart.


In the finale of GMA Network's Christmas 2016 Station ID, Magic Wand tells the story of giving. This innovative 3D Animation presented by GMA is far different from past Holiday Station IDs.

The young magician happily turns his toys into gifts for other kids to enjoy. He shares them without any intention of getting something in return. Christmas is really the season of giving and spreading love.

It doesn't feature celebrities or TV personalities singing or dancing. It focuses on the core messages that this Holiday brings. It talks about family, being altruistic, happiness and love.

Easter Eggs
Part three of Magic ng Pasko is also full of easter eggs (an easter egg is a videogame phrase that pertains to a hidden surprise).

There are about a minimum of 4 easter eggs that would make you watch the video, over and over again in order to find them. If you're a true fan of GMA Network, it would be easy for you.

Try to look for these scenes in Magic Wand and guess who these characters represent.





The Christmas Village
A box of crayons, a phonograph and a wand --- what do these items all have in common? They bring magic to a little town that we all aspire to belong.

The family from Magic Crayons and the couple from Magic Phonograph also appears in this ultimate Maniwala sa Magic ng Pasko Station ID.

Together with the young wizard from Magic Wand, they all form a community. A Christmas Village full of good values and spirit that they are not afraid to share woth everyone.

Believe in the Magic of Christmas. Believe in the power of love that spreads throughout this season of hope, giving and joy.
