Film Friday #3 Tinker Bell (Children's, U, 10/10)

2008,Rated U (Suitable for all)
Personal Copy 

Summary from Amazon (I don't benefit by mentioning them) 

The world’s most beloved fairy is back for a brand new adventure in Disney's Tinker Bell. Given a voice for the first time on screen, the tiny star of Disney's classic Peter Pan, Tinker Bell (Mae Whitman)--longs to work beautiful magic like her friends, but as the fairies bring Autumn to the world there are more important matters at hand. Join Tink and her friends as they embark on a quest to save Pixie Hollow in a family adventure that’s sprinkled with pixie dust.

Nayuleska's thoughts 

I adore fairies, and Tinker Bell (two words, rather than one) is a very famous fairy. In an ideal world her trademark green dress would be a little longer and looser, but it is cute. I love the way she goes red when she gets mad. The way that fairies are created is inventive - I thoroughly enjoyed the ritual when Tinker Bell saw which magic she would have because you get all the other fairies who have funky outfits. 

This tale is all about being proud of who you are and what you can do, rather than wanting to look at the greener looking grass. This is important because often you may not think you're special or do anything amazing, but in reality you are, which is exactly what Tinker Bell learns in this 10/10 film. My favourite scenes are when Tink is trying of her friends' magic - she tries so hard to be good at the tasks and fails spectacularly.
