Oh you should have seen Princess Emma dancing around today! She was no longer a princess in a long dress. No today she was the greatest fairy of all time, TINK! Yes, we were so thrilled to watch Disney's Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue. It was prancing, leaping and the sprinkling of magic fairy dust all around the room. The paintbrush became her fairy wand and Emma's hair had to be put up in a bun on the top of our head. I was quite admonished for not knowing how to make fairy wings for Emma. But Granny M came to the rescue with a 'tailor made' green dress (over sized top and scarf for a belt) so that Emma would look the part.
If you have not had the pleasure of seeing a movie through the eyes of a child then go out and borrow a kid soon. Disney has always had the knack for letting us all become a child in front of the screen. Weather we are fighting pirates, dancing at a ball or singing in the jungle. Instantly our faces relax and our bodies start to bounce around. Of course, Emma was even more so with today's show.
Now for the show itself. Years before meeting Wendy and the Lost Boys, Tinker Bell met Lizzy, a little girl with a steadfast belief in the power of pixie dust and the magic land of fairies. During the fairies’ summer visit to the flowering meadows of England, two very different worlds unite for the first time and Tink develops a special bond with a curious child in need of a friend. As her fellow fairies launch a daring rescue, Tinker Bell takes a huge risk, putting her own safety and the future of all fairy kind in jeopardy. Now there is a whole cast to the fairies that live with Tink. My favorite it Vidia. But I always like the sneaky ones. Emma also loves Iridessa and Rosetta. Silvermist is especially beautiful. And Fawn gentle as ever. The boys Bobbie, Clank and Terenc help round up the crew.
We had to include how to make a Wind Wheel too. Emma has made three today and they are now out in the flower beds. She is convinced that there they will help the fairies make the flowers grow. Thankfully we had painted newspaper here from Emma's latest art projects. That we cut into the squares to make the pinwheels from. Thus it is frugal and her own personal touch. The sticks were just gathered from the yard. That took a whole 15 minutes to find just the right ones.
See for yourself how the movie will pull you in fast. I am sure that it would be so much fun to watch with your lil ones too. Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue debuted September 21st on Blu-ray Combo Pack (includes Blu-ray and bonus DVD of the film and movie download) and DVD.
