Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue – a DVD Review

Beguiling and charming, sweet and fun; TinkerBell and the Great Fairy Rescue shakes off the recent film animation trends to appeal to a wide range of audiences through multi layered languaging and gags – instead focusing on being a great childrens film; one strictly made for kids.

Even the most sensitive young child would find it difficult to find any fear factors hiding within this gorgeously presented movie. Colours are vibrant, detail is sharp and the story so playful, it is certain to be a film which will be played over and over.

The story is set years before Tinker Bell meets Peter Pan, Wendy and the Lost Boys. Fairy friends visit the Victorian meadow lands where Tinker Bell meets Lizzy, a little girl whose belief in the power magic and  fairies is ridiculed by many.  Although her friends believe Tinker Bell has been captured and puts into place a daring rescue, Tink develops a special bond with  Lizzy, seeing that she and her father are in need of some magic of their own.

As you’d expect from Disney, it’s a charming tale playing on the childhood hope of meeting magical creatures at the bottom of the garden; where both parties push the boundaries of their fears to discover new strengths.

An absolutely stunning production, devoid of high profile names, this totally inoffensive movie is one of the most delightful films I have seen specifically made for children for years. This is a must see for fairy believers of all ages.

The DVD is available in Australia from the 4th of Sept.  Check out your local variety stores for availability.
