Tinker Bell and her fairy friends are back once again to sprinkle half terms with pixie dust with the all new movie.
Out in cinemas from the 14th February 2014
At the weekend we were thrilled to attend a preview screening of Tinkerbell and The Pirate Fairy. We have seen all of the other films in the series, and it definitely followed on perfectly from them. Hinting at story lines and including characters from the other stories, it felt familiar, exciting and I’ve got to admit made me and the family giggle lots.
Tinker Bell and The Pirate Fairy has a really interesting story line, as it acts as a prequel to Peter Pan, explaining things like the tick tock of the alarm clock in the crocodile. It starts of though in Pixie Hollow with the dust-keeper fairy named Zarina stealing Pixie Hollow’s most prized possession blue pixie dust. She then joins forces with the motley crew of pirates, in her attempt to make their Pirate ship fly, so they can rampage the world doing what pirates do best. Once Tinkerbell, and her fairy friends realise this has happened, they go in pursuit of Zarina to try and return it to its home.
I’m going to leave the story there though, as I don’t want to spoil it, but I must mention when Zarina uses her special dust to mix up the fairies talents, as that is a really funny scene.
It is directed by Peggy Holmes and produced by Jennifer Magee-Cook, the film features vocal performances from a stellar cast including Christina Hendricks as the voice of Zarina, Tom Hiddleston as cabin boy James. Mae Whitman returns to reprise her role as Tinker Bell, whilst Lucy Lui lends her voice to Silvermist, Raven Symone as Iridessa and Megan Hilty as Rosetta.
You won’t be disappointed with this film, its perfect for half term I think. Beautifully illustrated, and the story is a good pace to keep little ones interested, but not confusingly so. It’s not scary at all, so suitable for all ages. When I asked my youngest Miss A (4) which bit she liked best, she couldn’t decide, as she loved all of it.
Here is a taster of the film:
