Editorial Reviews

What would you do if you met a fairy? Witness the historic moment when Tinker Bell first meets a human being ... and it's not who you think. Years before meeting Wendy and the Lost Boys, Tinker Bell met Lizzy, a little girl with a steadfast belief in the power of pixie dust and the magic land of fairies. During the fairies' summer visit to the flowering meadows of England, two very different worlds unite for the first time and Tink develops a special bond with a curious child in need of a friend. As her fellow fairies launch a daring rescue, Tinker Bell takes a huge risk, putting her own safety and the future of all fairykind in jeopardy. Experience Disney's astonishing all-new movie about the true power of faith and friendship. Bursting with excitement and imagination, TINKER BELL AND THE GREAT FAIRY RESCUE is magical entertainment for the whole family. You might even learn to fly.

In the third Tinker Bell film ("Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue"), I found myself surprised yet again at the high quality and entertaining quality of this straight to video release. I also found myself puzzled (again) why this film didn't hit theaters first. Going by the preview trailers, the next installment, "Tinker Bell and The Mysterious Winter Woods," might be different, since it is advertised as an "all new movie event." But back to this movie...

The story is about Lizzy, a young girl whose father has little time for her. She is fascinated by fairies, whereas her father is caught up in facts and scientific research. Through a twist of fate, Lizzy meets Tinker Bell and they become fast friends. Tink sees that Lizzy's father is not giving her the love and attention that she needs, so she helps Lizzy put together a book of facts on fairies, thinking that it might appeal to her dad. Meanwhile, Tinker Bell's fairy friends go on a journey to rescue Tinker Bell from the human world, putting themselves in grave danger. Can Lizzy catch the attention of her dad? Will Tink's friends be able to "rescue" her without getting caught by Lizzy's dad and used for research?

The film is somewhat predictable, and the plot motivations are fairly standard. Yet...the high quality of animation, excellent character development, and quick pacing of the movie make it extremely enjoyable, especially for kids. With a smaller group of fairies in this movie, it is easier to get to know each one and they are all filled with plenty of personality. Lizzy is easy to like as well; her father on the other hand is very difficult to bond with. His personality transformation at the end of the film comes too quickly and is somewhat difficult to believe. This was the only fault I found with the storyline.

My fairy-loving 5 year old daughter and I have adored Disney's Tinkerbell series of movies, and TINKER BELL AND THE GREAT FAIRY RESCUE is no exception. This movie has all the charm and joy of its two predecessors, and once again, I have to wonder why these movies have been released straight to DVD. With some of the most gorgeous animation I have ever seen, top-notch voice talent, sincere and honest messages, and a healthy dose of famed Disney magic, TINKER BELL AND THE GREAT FAIRY RESCUE (along with TINKER BELL and TINKER BELL AND THE LOST TREASURE) would have made a mint in the theatres. These movies make you believe, and really, that is all any of us want.

Tinker Bell is back, and this time she and her friends are spending the summer on the human mainland. Tink is under strict orders to stay away from the humans. While fairies do a great many things for humans and the human world, rule number one is that humans do not know that fairies really exist. But the fairies never reckoned on a lonely little girl like Lizzy, before. You see, Lizzy LOVES fairies; she is one of the few humans who truly believes. Lizzy builds a fairy house, hoping upon hope to entice a fairy into being her friend (hmmm...sounds like someone else I know!). Well, guess who can't resist! Tink ends up befriending Lizzy and teaching her workaholic father lessons about trusting in his daughter and believing with his heart, instead of his head.

TINKER BELL AND THE GREAT FAIRY RESCUE is sweet, innocent, and stunning; a delightful tale told by outstanding talent. The brilliantly superb (I need more superlatives!

We bought this for our 2 year old daughter! She loves the other two Tinkerbell movies. She didn't know it was coming so once we got out to the mail box she was thrilled! We of course opened it and watched it right away. It was very cute the story was touching and it had plenty of action. I enjoyed how you really got to see the other faries personalities not just Tinkerbell. I got quite a few laughs out of it as did my husband. It really is a great movie and we're already looking forward to the other one coming out Fall 2012.

Tinkerbell and the Great Fairy Rescue is the third in the computer animated series and for our family the best yet. The quality of the animation, storytelling and music is far more than what direct-to-video tends to offer. Four generations of our family have all watched and loved the story. It entertains the children but never bores Mom and Dad. Great grandma may love it more than the kids, what more can you ask? It teaches the value of friendship, family and the need to never stop believing in the unbelievable.

My oldest (4 years old) found this movie when she got ahold of my Kindle and begged to be allowed to watch it - boy am I glad I said yes. She, her younger sister and I have all watched it several times and it still doesn't get old! Love having it on my Kindle Fire so that when we go on road trips or longer drives, the girls can watch it at their leisure. The movie is cute, the story is engaging and I loved that the little girl was so willing to stick to what she believed in!
