For all you Tinker Bell fans, Disney just released the latest video in the “Disney Fairies” movie series, Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure. Just in time for the first snow school closure day here in Colorado.
Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure takes place in Autumn, as the fairies are on the mainland hanging the colors of the leaves, tending to pumpkin patches, and helping geese fly south for the winter. The rare Blue Moon will rise, and when its light passes through the magical Fall Scepter that Tinker Bell has been summoned to create, Pixie Hollow’s supply of pixie dust will be restored. But when Tinker Bell accidentally puts all of Pixie Hollow in jeopardy, she must venture out across the sea on a secret quest to set things right.
My kids’ school district is actually open today, thank goodness. They actually viewed my preview copy last weekend. My son, Nathan, who is nine watched it for a little while, then went to go play on the computer. Lucie, who is six, sat on the couch and watched it for a bit, too. Then she went to go play with her doll house and let the movie play in the background.Uh oh, I thought, she’s getting too old for these type of cute, girly movies. (Note to self: stop letting her watch all those scary Harry Potter DVDs.)
No, actually she was paying close attention. When I asked her how she liked Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure, Lucie gave me a complete rundown of the plot. She said liked it except for when Tink broke the blue ball on the scepter. She told me how it got fixed, and how she liked that part best of all.
The full-length CG animated film comes in a Blu-ray Combo Pack (Blu-ray + DVD) and standard def DVD. If you can safely make it out of the house today, I’m sure you’ll find it at your local grocery, discount or video rental store.
