Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue

Disney’s third ‘Tinker Bell’ animation ticks all the fairy-friendly boxes without stretching itself too hard. Blonde, shapely and good at fixing things, she’s like a DIY Barbie (with wings). Here, Tinker is part of a ‘Mean Girls’-style bratpack who spend summercamp in Ye Olde England, near a cottage inhabited by fairy-loving Lizzy and the father she calls ‘Father’. A lot. A cute fairy-girl friendship follows, with vicarious fun for little girls who like dressing up in pink tutus. There’s a particularly enjoyable flying sequence that has a dreamlike air reminiscent of Tinker’s origins. Animation-wise, the humans look like dolls, which makes them hard to relate to. And the plot’s wrapped up far too simply – the ‘rescue’ of the title is missable. Still, the central character has enough pluck and personality to sell a gazillion Tinker trinkets.

An absolute delight for anyone who still think they are kids at heart. Tinker Bell and her fellow fairies behave like highschools kids and the humans - one 9 Y.O. girl who loves nature and fairy stories and one sceptical adult (as per usual) the fairies - delighfull plus delightful names leke Iridessa etc. A beautiful gentle movie worth watching many times
