Tinker Bell and the Pirate Fairy

Yo ho, yo ho, a fairies life for me! Shiver me wings, swab the dust, it's off to the screen we go:

Tinker Bell and the Pirate Fairy - Tinker Bell is not the only tinkerer within Pixie Hollow!

Tinker Bell is not the only tinkerer within Pixie Hollow, there's also her Dust-Keeper Fairy friend: Zarina. Whilst Tinker Bell tinkers with Lost Things, Zarina tinkers with Pixie Dust: she is fascinated by its colours, and wants to learn all she can about it! Even so, Zarina still has an important task to perform (just like the other Dust Keepers): she helps to gather Pixie Dust and distribute it amongst the fairies - which in turn, is what allows them to fly and (for example) is what allows Silvermist to control water. Zarina does not stop there though: she likes to experiment with Pixie Dust, which eventually causes an incident within Pixie Hollow, and she is forced to run away. There's a fair amount of comedy within this film - and I have several favourite scenes. The first, is when Tinker Bell, Silvermist, Fawn, Iridessa, Rosetta and Vidia have their powers swapped - as it takes them a while to figure out how to use their new powers: Tinker Bell ends up soaking everybody, when she touches a water fall (as she is now a Water Fairy). The second, is when Rosetta accidentally befriends a baby crocodile - as he's the cutest crocodile I've ever seen: Rosetta is seen by him as his Mum, and he follows her to the Pirate Ship, where he helps to protect Rosetta (by biting some Pirates), before he eventually develops a Tick-Tock Tick-Tock (sound). The third, is when the Pirates break into their sing song - as they (easily) have you tapping your feet: they dance around the decks, swing around the masts and soap ski on the deck! The dancing and singing Pirates actually caused me to forget that they are indeed Pirates, and I was shocked when they suddenly take control of the Pirate Ship (and capture the Pirate Fairy). My favourite (comedy) character is Rosetta: it makes me laugh when Fawn (accidentally) damages her hair! Overall: An enjoyable tale that bridges the gap between Tinker Bell and the Neverland/Peter Pan tales. I have been impressed by the films storyline (throughout), and have also been impressed by the films special effects, especially towards the end - when Zarina returns to Pixie Hollow, and helps Tinker Bell (plus friends) put on an amazing light show.

Tinker Bell and the Secret of the Wings

Curiosity, Chance and Snow, combine with Tinker Bell, to create a magical tale:

Tinker Bell and the Secret of the Wings - Curiosity, Chance and Snow :)

Although Tinker Bell is a Summer fairy, her adventurous nature gives rise to the idea of meeting a Winter fairy (and exploring the Winter Woods). As it is forbidden for Summer and Winter fairies to interact, Tinker Bell acts in secret: travelling to Winter, when the curiosity over her glowing wings becomes too great. I found the storyline to be totally engaging, and have been fully sold on the idea that fairies can have sisters. My three favourite scenes are: when Tinker Bell meets her Frost Fairy sister Periwinkle (as they both get to see how they were born from the same babies laugh), when Periwinkle shows Tinker Bell around the Winter Woods (as they both go figure skating and end-up in a heap of snow) and when Periwinkle is surrounded by butterfly's (as she is passionate about them - and wished that she could meet them). I like the transition from hard Winter to soft Winter, as the boundary between them melts away. This happens both in terms of characters (e.g. Winter fairy Spike has a similar personality to Summer fairy Vidia) and in terms of plot (e.g. both Summer and Winter fairies have to work together to save the Pixie Tree/Pixie Hollow). I also like the fact that Tinker Bells character has evolved: she is prepared to risk injury to herself, for the sake of others. Overall: An amazing tale that captures the magical fun of Winter, yet at the same time, shows the similarities between Summer and Winter (Silver Mist skies on water, whilst Frost Fairies ski on snow).
