The kids and I have been awaiting the latest Tinkerbell movie for what seems like forever. The combination of fairies and pirates had my kids (and me) near giddily with anticipation. They were more than excited when a review copy landed on my doorstep just in time to watch it over a long weekend. And watch it we did – over and over again.
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. Enjoy the laughter, heart, magic and thrills of THE PIRATE FAIRY.
This movie has elements of fun, and adventure with quiet messaging about the importance of friendship, why it’s important to never give up, owning up to your mistakes and forgiveness. While movie watching for the kids is always more about the story than the messaging, it does open up conversations in an easy and fun way. Getting to see Hook and Tick-Tock before their Peter Pan days was an extra special treat. The Pirate Fairy is definitely FUN and a movie I am am sure will be played a few times on our long road trip as #NugGoesWest.
