Want to know when the John Lewis Christmas Advert 2018 will be released? The official release date has not been revealed yet, but the 2017, 2016 and 2015 John Lewis Christmas Advert release dates provide a big clue. These were:
2017 – Moz the Monster, released on Friday November 10th 2017

My best guess for the John Lewis Christmas Advert 2018 Release Date? Friday 9th November 2018.
The big budget John Lewis Chistmas Advert has become something of an annual tradition in British popular culture. It’s certainly a big reminder that countdown to Christmas has begun.
So what’s the John Lewis Christmas Advert 2018 about, and what’s the song?
Official details are rather scarce and John Lewis has a rule never to comment on any aspect of their Christmas Advert in advance “simply because we want to keep the magic."
That said, according to the press reports I’ve read John Lewis has hired Sir Elton John for £5 million to provide the soundtrack for this year’s advert, and Elton's fee makes up half of the advert's whopping £10m budget.
The advert will be based around Elton John’s 1970 hit ‘Your Song’ and will feature clips from his life with actors playing the young Elton, and with Elton himself also appearing onscreen playing the piano.
From what I read:
"It’s a tear-jerker but also very sweet, and follows Elton from a child, through his teenage years, into how he is today. It is all very, very charming and the exciting crescendo at the end will be Elton playing his famous piano."
