Journey into the secret world of Pixie Hollow and hear Tinker Bell speak for the very first time as the astonishing story of Disney's most famous story fairy is finally revealed in the all-new motion picture Tinker Bell.

Have you ever wondered how nature get its glow- who give it light and color as the seasons come and go? Enter a land of adventure and mystery as Tinker Bell and her four fairy friends turn winter into spring and with the power of faith, trust and a little bit of pixie dust, learn the importance of being true to yourself.


What is it with young girls nowadays? First, they go head over heels, imagining that they are princesses, dancing with their Prince Charming in a pretty gown at the ball. Now, their imagination goes one notch further – they picture themselves as fairies, fluttering about bushes and flowers, sprinkling pixie dust in their pretty outfits. If this isn’t the case, then Disney wouldn’t have launched the Disney Fairies franchise in 2005 (after the successful and money making Disney Princess line up in 2000), and this straight to video animated movie produced by DisneyToon Studios wouldn’t be flying off shelves like, well, pixie dust.

The digital 3D movie invites viewers (preferably young girls below the age of 12) to enter Pixie Hollow, a magical world where enchanting creatures of nature bring about the change of seasons. The Tinker Bell we know from Peter Pan has her origins here, and she thinks that her fairy talent isn’t as special or important as the other friends’. So begins a 78 minute adventure where she goes through a self discovery adventure which tells her that as long as she believes in herself, anything magical is possible.

From a male reviewer’s point of view, the Disney fairies are better animated than those he shared a magical time with at Winx Club. But then again, this is Hollywood, and every fairy’s talent of changing the colours of leaves, shifting a sun ray to melt snow, waking the animals from their hibernation and sprinkling water to allow plants to nurture and grow is perfectly animated with the advancing technology. It probably depends on which camp the viewer (preferably a girl below the age of 12) belongs to.

What’s a Disney adventure without friends? Here, Tinker Bell’s fairy friends (Silvermist, Fawn, Iridessa, and Rosetta, if you really must know) are voiced by familiar actresses like Lucy “Cashmere Mafia” Liu, America “Ugly Betty” Ferrera and Raven “Cheetah Girl” Symone – which means that the producers are determined to make this a big hit to spin off other merchandise products like magazines, pencil cases, water bottles that will entice parents to fork out money for their beloved kids (preferably young girls below the age of 12).

The story isn’t that bad, and Mae Whitman (Nights in Rodanthe) does give a nice spunk to Tinker Bell’s voice. And we especially love the part at the movie’s last scene where it connects itself to Peter Pan’s female companion Wendy Darling. So it’s really alright to let go of your cynical self and believe in the magic here.

Oh, we can’t wait for the next straight to video “Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure” to premiere on home entertainment already. We bet viewers (preferably young girls below the age of 12) are waiting in bated breath too.


This Code 3 Platinum Edition is loaded with heaps of extras (two discs worth of them!) celebrates the 50th anniversary of the movie and every self proclaimed Disney fan would want to include it in his DVD collection.

This Code 3 disc contains a few decent features. The “Magical Guide to Pixie Hollow” is an interesting feature where Tinker Bell takes you to the different sections of Pixie Hollow to tour every magical corner. Whitman gives a very engaging narration that made us believe that we were actually visiting the fairy hideout. The four minute “Ever Wonder” is a visually capturing clip where we see kids going about their everyday activities while the computer generated fairies fly about and bring beauty to things we take for granted. The “Fly To Your Heart” Music Video performed by Disney star Selena Gomez is a three minute song inspired by the Disney Fairies series. “Creating Pixie Hollow” is a 10 minute making of feature which has the animators talking about where the inspiration of the movie came from – hear how they take hikes and get down on their feet to see the world through a fairy’s eyes. There are 11 minutes of six “Deleted Scenes” with optional commentary included on the disc as well. - see how the fairy queen’s pixie dust magically turn the fairies into fully certified fairies and how Tinker Bell’s friends emphasize that she is as important  as every one of them. “Sneak Peeks” include other upcoming Disney home entertainmen releases like Space Buddies and Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure, as well as the 2010 theatrical release The Princess and The Frog.   


The magical sights and sounds are wonderfully captured on the disc’s flawless visual transfer, and there are English, Thai, Mandarin, Cantonese and Korean language tracks to choose from.
