Movie Info

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 with the band of pirates led by a cabin boy named James (voice of Tom Hiddleston), who'll soon be known as Captain Hook, himself. Enjoy the laughter, heart, magic and thrills of The Pirate Fairy.

  • While Disney's cheaply made Tinkerbell films have none of the cultural cachet of more lavish animated features, they're getting slyer and more interesting on their own terms.

  • So much better than one would expect for a fifth installment in a franchise, this tribute to female friendship and girl power is a kick.

  • True flights of fancy - as when the fairies make an imaginary man walk and dance by manipulating an overcoat, tricorn hat and buckled boots - are far too rare.

  • Because Hiddleston is a genius and the scriptwriters obviously adore him, the ocean-bound scenes are less nightmarishly tedious than non-fans of the genre might expect.

  • The girl-power swashbuckling that follows might be cheering if it went beyond 60 minutes, or could offer anything more than smoothly indifferent animation and a new Natasha Bedingfield song.

  • There are some gorgeous Disney touches, rabble-rousing songs on the pirate ship and the usual 'best friends for ever' message.

    The latest 3D computer-animated fantasy directed by Peggy Holmes didn't manage to provoke any interest in the first 40 minutes, and after that everything was a struggle! I have to say that my wife and my son liked it, and they watched all of the previous four films in the DisneyToon Studios' Tinker Bell series. Based on the character Tinker Bell from J. M. Barrie's Peter and Wendy, the film features the voices of Mae Whitman, reprising her role of Tinker Bell, Christina Hendricks as a new dust-keeper fairy named Zarina, and Tom Hiddleston as a much younger James Hook. [img]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/f/fa/The_Pirate_Fairy_poster.jpg/220px-The_Pirate_Fairy_poster.jpg[/img] It started as a typical fairy story in which Zarina (Christina Hendricks), a pixie-dust talent fairy, is entranced by the magic of Blue Pixie Dust and is determined to find out what it is capable of, despite having been told not to by Fairy Gary. After intentionally experimenting with some blue pixie dust and causing chaos in Pixie Hollow, Zarina is prohibited from working with pixie dust again. Saddened and hurt by this, Zarina leaves Pixie Hollow but a year later, comes back secrety. Pixie Hollow celebrates the Four Season Games, this year featuring the winter fairies. As the winter fairies perform their act, Tinker Bell (Mae Whitman), Silvermist (Lucy Liu), Iridessa (Raven-Symoné), Rosetta (Megan Hilty), Fawn (Angela Bartys), and Vidia (Pamela Adlon) spot Zarina flying into Pixie Hollow and take cover. Zarina uses some pixie dust to summon several poppies which then cause everyone to fall asleep, before taking the blue pixie dust, which Iridessa notes as being the source of pixie dust and in turn, the fairies' ability to fly. Tink and her friends hid on time and were not affected, and followed Zarina to the coast. They were surprised to find a ship and it was revealed that Zarina is in fact the captain of the ship's crew, including the cabin boy, James Hook (Tom Hiddleston). The film was originally titled Quest for the Queen, and was scheduled for Autumnl 2013, before another DisneyToon Studios film, Planes, took its place, delaying the film to Spring 2014. Disney announced in January 2014 that former Project Runway winner and fashion designer Christian Siriano would be in charge of creating the ensemble costumes for the fairies, specifically Zarina. Siriano stated that "I loved the challenge of this project. I haven't designed for an animated character before, and I'm excited to take my skills into Zarina's world. She's a unique and new character and I wanted to help make her memorable and iconic. Disney characters are everlasting and I'm so happy as a young designer to help create a bit of Disney history." I am not sure about everlasting here... I want to forget them as quickly as possible!

    An actual progress on the storyline of Neverland as we know it from Peter Pan. I liked it better than the previous 4 movies, it had union and friendship and pirates, finally.
