What would you do if you met a fairy? Witness the historic moment when Tinker Bell first meets a human being ... and it's not who you think. Years before meeting Wendy and the Lost Boys, Tinker Bell met Lizzy, a little girl with a steadfast belief in the power of pixie dust and the magic land of fairies. During the fairies' summer visit to the flowering meadows of England, two very different worlds unite for the first time and Tink develops a special bond with a curious child in need of a friend. As her fellow fairies launch a daring rescue, Tinker Bell takes a huge risk, putting her own safety and the future of all fairykind in jeopardy. Experience Disney's astonishing all-new movie about the true power of faith and friendship. Bursting with excitement and imagination, TINKER BELL AND THE GREAT FAIRY RESCUE is magical entertainment for the whole family. You might even learn to fly.
Friendship and faith are two key components of happiness, and Tinker Bell is almost bursting with excitement at the thought of sharing a glorious summer on the mainland with her fellow fairies. As soon as she and the other fairies touch down on the mainland, Tinker Bell takes her friend Vidia and heads out to search for human treasures and things in need of fixing. What she finds is a young girl named Lizzy whose father is too busy to really listen to her, who absolutely believes in fairies with all her heart, and who desperately needs a friend. Lizzy creates a fairy haven that Tinker Bell simply can't resist, and, thanks in part to a prank by Vidia, Tinker Bell ends up getting captured by Lizzy. What begins as imprisonment against Tinker Bell's will soon blossoms into a friendship and a fix-it project for Tinker Bell that's unlike any she's ever attempted. Meanwhile, Vidia and the other fairies embark upon an elaborate and extremely dangerous plan to save Tinker Bell. The question is, can Tinker Bell improve Lizzy's life without jeopardizing the entire fairy world? Unlike the two previous Tinker Bell films, this film takes place almost exclusively in the human world--kind of a return to the original Peter Pan concept. What remains the same are the striking clarity and saturated colors of the film, Tinker Bell's unbridled enthusiasm and optimism, and her innate sense of how to make things better. Lauren Mote voices Lizzy, Michael Sheen voices her father Dr. Griffiths, and both join the talented cast that once again includes Mae Whitman, Kristin Chenoweth, Jesse McCartney, Raven-Symoné, and Pamela Adlon. Bonus features include deleted scenes, the "How to Believe" music video featuring Bridgit Mendler, a fairy trivia game, and footage of a fairy house design contest at Epcot Center.

With regard to this film, I believe it is the third in a series that features Tinker Bell in title and story line. It is also a prequel to her first encounter with Wendy and the Lost Boys in Peter Pan. In fact, this is her first encounter with human beings. Adults will recognize several basic themes that Disney has used in animated films at least since Snow White: a youth (puppet, step sister, elephant, princess, etc.) is either separated from family or feels neglected, if not disliked; imminent danger and the need for protection or rescue; the power of faith; and the true meaning and importance of friendship. All are basic to this film and developed with a light but sure touch.
Others have already praised the production values (i.e. quality of image, clarity of sound, and verisimilitude to human experience) and, frankly, I now take them for granted now when watching animated feature films produced by Disney, its Pixar group, or Dreamworks. With regard to the celebrity voices, they include Michael Sheen (Dr. Griffiths), Mae Whitman (Tinker Bell), Kristin Chenoweth (Rosetta), and Lucy Liu (Silvermist) but for me, they may as well be any other actors so long as the voices are appropriate to the given characters. The aforementioned four are.Read more ›
In this installment of Tinkerbell's adventures, she and the other fairies are in the British countryside at Fairy Camp (in the early 1900s, by the look of things) preparing the land for summer. Tinkerbell's never-ending fascination with gadgets leads to an unexpected encounter with a lonely little girl called Lizzy, who, along with her lepidopterology-obsessed (and presumably widowed) father, has come to stay in a nearby cottage for the summer. What follows are typical Disney shenanigans as the other Pixie Hollow fairies mount a rescue for Tinkerbell...who may not actually be the one who needs rescuing.
Very enjoyable family fare; you're never too old for "faith, trust, and Pixie dust." Look for the 4th Pixie Hollow DVD, Tinkerbell and the Mysterious Winter Woods, to hit stores in 2011.
Tinker Bell & the Great Fairy Rescue is the third installment of the Tinker Bell franchise, following Tinker Bell (2008), Tinker Bell & The Lost Treasure (2009). Unlike those direct-to-video crappy sequels in the 90s (Bambi II, Mulan II, etc), this direct-to-video transfer (MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.78:1 encode) is simply stunning. Colours are bright and vibrant with amazing details. One of my favourite details is how delicate the translucent fairy wings appear. Each wing is see-thru, but you are able to pick out the very fine details of tiny swoops and swirls that decorate the wings. Another amazing detail is that you can see each and every tiny molecule of pixie dust as it floats through the sky. Here though each speck is visible, shining, and bright. (4.5/5)
The DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio accompanying this release is a great complement to the stunning visuals. Like the visuals, the audio presentation relies on its attention to detail to get the job done. Directionality is spot on with sounds happening all around the listening environment as characters perform actions off screen. Surrounds come alive during the rainstorm as raindrops permeate the soundfield. Panning effects are smooth and inviting as fairies zoom across the screen with a tiny tinkling sound following them, or as an old-time car rumbles along a dirt road that stretches across the screen. Dialogue is perfectly clear. The soundfield remains fairly immersive throughout. (4/5)
Tinker Bell and the Fairy Rescue has stunning visuals with fantastic sound that captures the life and times of Tinker Bell and her friends. This third installment keeps the same fun spirit that the first two had.Read more ›
