“I received complimentary admission to an Advance Screening to facilitate my review of this movie, but all opinions are my own”
DIVA was super excited to go see The Pirate Fairy this weekend. This straight to DVD movie is one she has been looking forward to for a year now. And of course Disney made the day more magical by inviting the kids to come watch on the big screen dressed as their favorite fairy. And believe it or not, my daughter loves Rosetta. Being the DIVA I guess that shouldn’t be a surprise.
ABOUT THE PIRATE FAIRY
The Pirate Fairy is the fifth film in the DisneyToon Studios’ Tinker Bell film series. They are based on the Tinker Bell character from J. M. Barrie’s Peter and Wendy. The film features the voices of Mae Whitman, reprising her role of Tinker Bell, Christina Hendricks as a new dust-keeper fairy named Zarina, and Tom Hiddleston as a much younger James Hook.
Growing up I was not a huge Tinker Bell fan. It wasn’t until my twenties that I appreciated her complexity. And once the Tinker Bell film series started, both my daughter and myself were hooked. I love the casting and the whole idea of learning how Tinker Bell came to be.
WHO’S THE NEW GIRL?
In this latest installment we find a misunderstood dust-keeper fairy named Zarina. She is much like our beloved Tinker Bell but her talent is not viewed positively received.
Zarina leaves Pixie Hollow and returns only to steal Pixie Hollow’s all-important Blue Pixie Dust. Her plan didn’t completely go perfect and Tinker Bell and her friends follow her to get the Blue Pixie Dust back. They find Zarina and discover she has not only joined forces with the pirates of Skull Rock, but is their Captain. When Tink and the others try to confront Zarina, she switches their talents and escapes. Now Tinker Bell and the others have to race against time to retrieve the Blue Pixie Dust and return home to save Pixie Hollow. Once again Tinker Bell and the gang prove that with Faith, Trust & Pixie Dust-and the power of friendship-they can do anything.
RECOGNIZE SOMEONE ELSE?
Through this film we also get to see the beginnings of the Captain Hook we have come to know in Peter Pan as well as Hook’s foe- Tick Tock Croc. The soundtrack will feature an original song titled “Who I Am,” performed by Natasha Bedingfield.
