The Pirate Fairy Blu-ray+DVD: Review

By Sarah

Disney’s The Pirate Fairy finally releases on Blu-Ray+DVD today, aka April 1st! We have been waiting for it for so long, and it’s finally here! 😀

The Pirate Fairy is the fifth film from DisneyToon Studios’ Tinker Bell film series, based on the character ‘Tinker Bell’ from J.M Barrie’s Peter Pan. (I suggest that you check out the book too, it will be totally worth it!)

The film is about the mind-boggling new adventure of Zarina (voice of Christina Hendricks), an ambitious, inquisitive and intelligent dust-keeper fairy, who is enchanted by the magic of Blue Pixie Dust, and its endless possibilities. Zarina is determined to find out what the dust is capable of doing, despite being prohibited to do so by Fairy Gary. Zarina secretly experiments with some Blue Pixie Dust which causes chaos and confusion in Pixie Hollow. When Zarina’s crazy ideas get her into trouble, she is perturbed and runs away from Pixie Hollow and joins the pirates of Skull Rock, and ends up becoming the captain of their ship.

A year later, the whole Pixie Hollow celebrates the Four Season Winter Games, comprising of performances from fairies of all seasons. As the Winter Fairies are entertaining, Tinker Bell (voice of Mae Whitman) and her friends catch Zarina flying around Pixie Hollow. Zarina uses some magical pixie dust to summon quite a few poppies which then cause everyone to fall asleep, before taking the blue pixie dust, which is the source of pixie dust and in turn, the fairies’ ability to fly. After Zarina’s departure, Tinker Bell and her friends realize that Zarina has taken all the blue Pixie Dust away with her.For some reason, Tink and her pixie pals are not affected, and follow Zarina to the coast.Tinker Bell and her friends must embark on a marvellous adventure to search for their friend Zarina, and together they have a sword fight with the band of pirates led by a cabin-boy called James (voice of Tom Hiddleston), who would soon be known as Captain Hook himself.

The Bottom Line

We all love the world of Pixie Hollow and Disney Fairies, so even though it took a whole lot of four years for a new installment in this series to finally appear, I was still excited to see what kinds of adventures Tinker Bell and her fairy friends would get up to, and The Pirate Fairy has more than enough great songs and adventure to ensure that everyone has a good time watching it. The all-star voice cast featuring Tom Hiddleston, Raven Symone and Christina Hendricks only adds to the film’s charm, and the younger versions of characters like Captain Hook are delightful and charming to look at.

Although I wouldn’t call it a classic (It wasn’t Peter Pan after all, just one of those Neverland sequels), it’s sure take you through a ride of pure enjoyment, and that alone should save it a spot in your DVD/Blu-Ray collection. It would be safe to say that the movie has a gripping story, and is a treat for the audience.
