We own several movies from the Disney Fairy franchise. Those are movies about Tinker Bell and her friends for those who have no idea what I’m talking about. As much I suggest them though, my son is never one to get on board.
Yesterday, Disney’s newest addition, The Pirate Fairy, launched via Blu Ray and Digital HD across the US.
Official Synopsis: 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 against the band of pirates led by a cabin boy named James (voice of Tom Hiddleston), who’ll soon be known as Captain Hook himself.
The pirate action is just enough to keep any boy intrigued and the fact that the main pirate is the future Captain Hook himself just about put my son over the edge. There’s also a few appearances by the Tick Tock Croc, which I thought was awesome.
From the mouth of my five year old: “It was super funny! I liked when the crocodile bited Capt. Hook. And it was funny when the pirate threw the clock into the Tic Toc Croc’s mouth. I think all my friends would like it.”
From the parent perspective, it’s not my favorite kid’s movie, but it’s cute and I won’t mind watching it on occasion. There’s some good life lessons, which is always a plus.
You can buy The Pirate Fairy on Amazon for $22.99 (which includes a digital copy) or at Target.
