Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue
An Adventure With a Touch of Magic...
During a summer stay on the mainland, TinkerBell is accidentally discovered while investigating a little girl's fairy house. As the other fairies, led by the brash Vidia, launch a daring rescue in the middle of a fierce storm, Tink develops a special bond with the lonely, little girl. Determined to mend the girl's relationship with her distant father, Tink turns away her rescuers in order to help her new human friend risking her own safety and the future of fairykind.
When John Lasseter became chief creative officer of the Disney Animation Department he immediately scrapped the direct-to-DVD sequels of the studios much loved films because he felt it cheapened the brand. Yet, despite this decision, he agreed to make these quite hideous Tinker Bell spin-off films which do just as much damage in cheapening the Disney image.
In her latest soporific solo outing, Tinker Bell befriends a human girl whilst her fairy friends set out to save her. As with the previous films in the series it looks ugly with horrible voice acting and a sickly sweet tone. Fine, the film is aimed at five year old girls so the tone is perhaps excusable but the non-story isn’t. There is no sense of drama or adventure, the jokes are poor and it is significantly worse than most of the studio’s DTV sequels. Disappointingly, Disney are churning out yet another film in the series later this year. Joy.
Undeniably cute. This is a much softer and kinder Tinker Bell then from the original Peter Pan. I was surprised at how good the animation was. It's a really good movie for younger girls. It's about a sad little girl with a somewhat distant relationship with her father. She believes in fairies but her father tells her she must stop believing in such nonsense. Tinker Bell gets herself into trouble and her fairy friends are off to her rescue. Of course, Tinker Bell would get into some trouble with a little girl who believes in fairies & her father who does not. Hijinks ensue.
This was a sequel made to air on television but Disney released it in theaters almost last minute to see if they could score an animation nod for the oscars that year. It dd not get the nomination.
My love for Disney's Tinkerbell made me watch this movie and since the first 2 movies were okay I thought It'd be fun to watch. Well I thought wrong. The Great Fairy Rescue was much more targeted to younger folk, let's say toddlers. And if that wasn't enough to make it a very, VERY long hour wasted: the girl's fake British accent is annoying as **** (pardon my language).
So if you want to see a fun brainless movie, don't pick this one. It'll be perfect for your 3y old daughter/sister, though.
There's nothing wrong with this film, but some of the novelty of the previous Tinker Bell movies has run dry for me. Perhaps I need some Pixie Dust myself, but this film felt like it was playing with a rather thin script.
Makes me smile.
This was actually pretty nice. A simple plot but nice characterization all round.
This film means that I get to snuggle up on the sofa for 1.5 hrs with my kids which means I'm all for it. I don't have to pay attention do I?
None of the Tinker Bell franchise makes much sense to me, she's supposed to not talk. But My daughter loves it and if you're looking for films for your kids you could do worse and you won't necessarily have to scratch your eyes and block your ears if this is on in the background.
These Tinkerbell movies are better than you'd expect. Great production values and solid vocal performances. The first one is better than the second, but this third one is the most re-watchable. I should know - I have watched them all with my 3 year old quite a few times.
This particular viewing will be unforgettable, as my little girl sat on my lap with her head nestled into my shoulder the entire running time. She hugged me tighter during the sad parts, and giggled with me at the humorous ones. We simply enjoyed watching it together. The kind of movie-watching experience I would think the folks at Disney wish we had with all their movies.
And one I wish for all of you.
Oh yeah I watched this, the fat cat in it is amazing, but I have a thing for fat animals so ... I imagine this being something I would've enjoyed as a kid, it reminded me of that Fairytale: A True Story film ... y'know, the one that turned out to be not so truthful?
Anyway, the fat cat aside, it was pretty awful to watch, generally because Tinker Bell isn't supposed to be there, she lives in Neverland, duh? Why are they allowed to release these awful films, what went wrong at Disney?
