Review: Disney's Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue (DVD)

On September 21st, Disney Studios Home Entertainment released the Blu-ray/DVD combo of Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue, a highly anticipated release for Disney Fairies fans everywhere. This magical movie truly captivated all three of our children and really reinforced their ability to believe that fairies could actually exist right along with Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. I love that this movie does this because I want our children to continue to believe in magic for as long as possible.

Believing in the possibility that things may exist even though we have not seen them is a special gift that most children possess, but many adults do not. A darling little girl named Lizzy (voice by Lauren Mote) gives this gift to her father with the help of Tinker Bell (Mae Whitman) and all her fairy friends. What child has not imagined what it would be like to have the ability to fly?


Another underlying theme in this movie is the true meaning of friendship and the acceptance of ones' friends, faults and all. This is a lesson that Vidia (Pamela Adlon) learned the hard way. Luckily this adventure ends on a happy note and all the fairies are reunited safely. The adventure that gets them to that point is not one to be missed.

This DVD comes with an unusually long list of bonus features. My family's favorite was "Cat Attack" which showed a hilarious deleted scene about Lizzy's robust cat. We also very much enjoyed the "Fairy Field Guide Builder" game, which asks trivia questions about the movie that anyone who was paying attention during the movie could answer.

Currently, you can find Disney's Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue on Blu-ray/DVD or DVD alone at the Disney Store and other major retailers of Disney movies. The digital download is also now available.
