When dust-keeper fairy Zarina steals Pixie Hollow’s Blue Pixie Dust and joins forces with the pirates of Skull Rock, Tinkerbell and her fairy friends must return it to its rightful place. But in their pursuit, Tink’s world is turned upside down. She and her friends find that their talents have been switched and they have to race against time to retrieve the dust and save Pixie Hollow.
Our daughter is a huge Disney Fairies fan so this didn’t have to be very good to keep her interested. What was a relief to me was that this was a very worthy and enjoyable addition to the Tinkerbell franchise. What lifts this above your average kids’ film is when halfway through you realise this is actually a Captain Hook origin story. Tom Huddleston is clearly having fun in his pirate role and shows off his impressive singing voice too. Of course this is not Pixar but it is enjoyable throughout, shakes up your expectations and kept me and the kids thoroughly entertained.
