From the world of “Peter Pan” comes “The Pirate Fairy,” a swashbuckling new adventure about Zarina (voice of Christina Hendricks), a smart and ambitious dust-keeper fairy who’s captivated by Blue Pixie Dust and its endless possibilities. When Zarina’s wild ideas get her into trouble, she flees Pixie Hollow and joins forces with the scheming pirates of Skull Rock, who make her captain of their ship. Tinker Bell (voice of Mae Whitman) and her friends must embark on an epic adventure to find Zarina, and together they go sword-to-sword with the band of pirates led by a cabin boy named James (voice of Tom Hiddleston), who’ll soon be known as Captain Hook himself. With laughter, heart, magic and thrills, “The Pirate Fairy” sets sail April 1, 2014.
My daughter has been asking to see this movie for weeks. Every time a commercial would come on she would stop whatever she was doing and watch in awe. So when the long awaited day came that she got to watch it she was over the moon excited! So we all settled in for a family movie night....
This was a fantastic family film. My husband and I were as interested in the story as my daughter was. We were all thoroughly entertained! I have been a fan of the Tinkerbell movies for awhile. I think they are fun and I love the friendships that these fairies have formed, all while being very different. But this movie is definitely my favorite. I think it's because it really links in with Peter Pan, one of my all time favorite Disney movies.
I love how you are introduced to a young Captain Hook. His character is quite sneaky and greedy... but he really had me fooled at first! Throughout the movie there are little bits of Neverland that make you smile - Skull Rock, the 2nd star to the right, and the most adorable baby crocodile! And if you always wondered why he tick-tocked... this is your chance to find out! And there is a very special appearance at the end of the movie. I won't tell you who it is... you just have to see it!
So as I sit here writing this review... my daughter is asking me to put the movie in again and play fairies with her. I am off to Neverland! And be sure to check out these awesome activities to add to the magic. We will be doing these later this afternoon to keep the fun going.
