Tinker Bell And The Great Fairy Rescue!REVIEWS | Nirasha Jaganath | October 2, 2010 at 7:12 pm
My idea of Tinker Bell is pretty antiquated – I mean to me Tinker Bell was that little fairy with Peter Pan. Sure I was inundated with images in the Disney stores with the new look and movies but I just chalked that down to commercialism in products. When I got the invitation to preview the new Tinker Bell movie I agreed since I knew for an hour or so of not having to run after my girls while I chomped on movie popcorn sounded heavenly. I expected soppy – girly, but got a story even I was interested.
Tinker Bell is clearly loved yet looked at as being a tad mischievous by her peers at pixie hollow. Call me dreamy but I loved that whole concept of the fairies coloring the bees, butterflies and flowers. The Pixie Hollow story runs parallel with that of a little girl who has spent her life reading and indulging in all things fairies. Constantly trying to get the attention of her dad, a workaholic entomologist (one who studies bugs) she spends time often on her own.
Thus she builds a tiny fairy house, which thanks to her escapades, Tinker Bell gets stuck in. After getting over her shock at being chased by the cat, she gets put into a bird cage. It takes a while for Tinkerbell to warm up to the little girl and realize that she loves fairies and has no plans to harms her. In the meantime the rest of the folks at Pixie Hollow are preparing to rescue Tinker Bell all amidst an awful storm. While vying for her father’s attention and trying to convince him of the existence of fairies, Tinker Bell tries to save the little girl’s face by showing herself to the dad, which works against her. He then captures her to and is en-route to show the “specimen” to the the rest of the team.
Next follows a race to save Tinker Bell with the help of the rest of her friends and her new, now flying with the help of some pixie dust, human friend too. A tale of warmth and belief and one certainly to add to your collection.
Disclosure: We were invited to a special screening of the DVD.
