    Synopsis


    Tinker Bell
    Before joining Peter Pan and the Lost Boys, Tinker Bell and her fairy brethren were busy creating their own special magic in Pixie Hollow, where they go about the business of bringing rainbows to the sky, color to the flowers, and adding their fairy signature to other miracles of nature. Each fairy is gifted with a unique magical talent to contribute, but Tinker Bell (voiced by Mae Whitman) can't help but feel her talent ("tinkering") isn't as good as those of her fairy companions, and tries her best to change it. It takes a disaster and a lot of help from her friends to realize the magic of being true to oneself. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi

      Surprisingly well-done and enjoyable

      The CGI-animated Disney Fairies property film Tinker Bell, on the surface, seems to be the kind of film that would be obviously be terrible. However, it is a surprisingly well-done and enjoyable film. Even as a property that exists solely to promote toys to children, the filmmakers still put significant effort into the character design, world design, music, and animation. First off, the animation is fluid and well-done. It’s not quite up to Pixar standard, but it comes close for DisneyToon Studios. The next noticeable good thing about this movie is its music. It does a great job of setting the wondrous tone of the world and the narrative. “To the Fairies They Draw Near” by Loreena McKennitt has that sound that invokes child-like awe and a beautiful melody of fantasy. Another thing this film does quite well is world-building. The source material, both the Disney film and the original J.M. Barrie tale, provide little background on the world of fairies, but this film expands the fairy lore with a complete world. Although, the downside is that although it’s established that Pixie Hollow is connected with Never Land, it never clarified where it is exactly. But the fairies have distinct jobs connected with nature (many of which funnily resemble the Bending arts of Avatar lore), and worlds within their own environ. The characters are enjoyable. However, this Tinker Bell is NOT the Tinker Bell of Peter Pan, at least, not yet. Her character works for this franchise quite well, but it is not in harmony with the source material. This Tinker Bell is kind, if not impatient, helpful, understanding, sweet, and friendly. Her negative traits, like her vanity and jealously, oddly enough, seem to have passed onto another character named Vidia, voiced by Pamela Adlon. Speaking of which, the voice acting in this film is well-cast and well-performed. Mae Whitman gives a kindness but still strong voice to Tink. Kristin Chenoweth, Raven-Symoné, Lucy Liu, and America Ferrera all do well as Tink’s fairy friends Rosetta, Iridessa, Silvermist, and Fawn, who each represent the different job classes of the fairies. Even Jesse McCartney shows he has acting range as Terrance. Anjelica Huston has regal presence as Clarion, the Fairy Queen, and voice acting veterans Rob Paulsen and Jeff Bennett are tolerable if not grating as fellow Tinker fairies Clank and Bobble. The plot is a tad on the predictable side, but it works for children. As usual with Disney DVDs, the DVD extras are great, expanding the world and are colorful and interactive. Selena Gomez’s music video is visually uninspiring, but that’s a DVD music video for you. Overall, this was a good start to open this franchise with. It established the tone, world, and characters well, and left open the possibility to expand the world further with more characters and seasons. For an opening effort, a strong start. B+

      We are Disney passholders and were lucky enough to be invited to watch the movie this afternoon in it's entirety at Disney World! Let me just say it was wonderful!! Both myself and my almost 4 year old daughter were mesmerized by the graphics, the color and the story. It is very well done and I hope everyone has the opportunity to see it on the big screen like we did today because it is just beautiful. FYI, there are 3 more movies to follow this one, hopefully on the big screen. The message of the movie is also great for kids, that we can't all be good at everything but that's ok! Tink is such a cute character as are the other fairies, I sometimes forgot they weren't real! LOVED THIS MOVIE!!!

      Magical!

      My 3 year old daughter and I have been waiting for this movie to come out, and we love it! It's great entertainment for kids & adults. The colors, graphics and animation are simply amazing on Blu-ray. Themes of nature, seasons and colors run throughout the film. I love that Tink is true to her character from Peter Pan and is just a little bit snotty at times, but overall she has a good heart and comes through at the end. The ending was totally predictable but a great tie-in to Peter Pan. Can't wait for the next one!! Totally enchanting!

      No need to be skeptical about this Disney film because it went straight to DVD. It is top quality. The animation drawing & color are beautiful examples of the craft and the lighting effects are outstanding, all to be appreciated on big screen TVs. The story line conveys a worthwhile message about living within your limits. A film for the whole family, first & best in a very successful series.

      A Tinker

      This movie involves the creation of Tinkerbell, how she came to be, and the world she is born into. It's her trying to find her place in the world, her doubting the roll she was put into, and trying to battle out of it. Of course how it turns out is completely predictable, but it was a pretty entertaining story although there were some story elements that seemed a little out of place. Otherwise, the kids will love it, and the adults will feel just meh.

      The first time I saw this movie with my 4-year-old daughter, I had hoped that fairies would be the new princesses in her life. That half way happened, but she never let go of the princesses. This movie is really cute and fun. They did an excellent job of bringing a classic Disney character back on the screen. I highly recommend this for anyone who has daughters.

      The case says region-free (A&B&C) but the disc is A only. I bought it as a gift for my niece in China but had to return it. Movie is pretty good. I thought the animation was a little old but the little girls in our family all loved it--the first story of Tink,

      Very Cute

      I got to see the world premier at the Heartland Film Festival over the weekend. It is a very cute film dealing with Tinkerbell's creation, her name, her ambitions. Good old-fashioned style Disney film. Wonderful animation, nice soundtrack. There is a nice tie in to Peter Pan at the end. A definite buy for the Disney Animation fan.
