Thoughts on Three Disney Fairies Movies
I really love Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue. Summer camp on the mainland. Tink and all her friends are in for quite an adventure. Tinker Bell knows that she's supposed to stay far away from humans, from the human house. But she's so very curious. One thing she is super curious about is a horseless carriage. She sees Lizzy and her father arrive at the cottage, and, she can't resist wanting to explore just a bit. When Vidia's wings get wet, and the two have to walk back to camp, Tinker Bell's impulsiveness displays itself once again. She finds a fairy house! An oh-so-cute fairy house (made of an oatmeal carton!). She, of course, has to go inside. The door gets stuck--not out of maliciousness, but mechanical problems. Vidia witnesses her friend getting captured by a human girl, a girl named Lizzy. Vidia follows from a distance as Lizzy takes her to her house and attempts to show her "real fairy" to her oh-so-distracted scientific father. Vidia returns to camp to tell everyone that Tink has been captured and put in a cage! A rescue won't be easy since it's raining, but Tink's friends won't let her down...
I love, love, love this one for many reasons. I love seeing Tinker Bell and Lizzy together. I love when they make a book together. Love all the kid art, and how these two find a way to understand each other and communicate. I love how Tinker Bell wants to "fix" the relationship between father and daughter. Even if that puts her own life at risk since she's given at least one or two opportunities to leave.
Love this one. I do. The song the Great Divide is just wonderful!!! I just love this one from start to finish!!!
Tinker Bell and her friends will need to save the day, but Zarina won't make it easy for them! Hint: She switches their talents! If you haven't seen this one yet, you should!!! I love seeing the crocodile!!!
And, did I mention it stars Tom Hiddleston as James, a young Captain Hook?! There is so much to love about this movie! I adore "Who I Am," I do. But, I love, love, love The Frigate That Flies!!!
