Fans of the classic Peter Pan movie will love Disney’s new animated movie, The Pirate Fairy because it answers so many questions about Neverland. Our family was invited to a special screening to see it in the movie theatre but you can purchase it on Blu-Ray and DVD beginning today.
Of all the fairy movies I have seen, the Pirate Fairy is by far my favorite.
We return to Neverland and see the fairies of Pixie Hollow busy about their day and discover the secret power of Blue Pixie Dust. Tinker Bell, Periwinkle, Rosetta, Fawn, Silvermist, Iridessa, and Vidia are familiar friends who introduce us to Zarina, the newest fairy.
Zarina begins to question why there are not more colors of Pixie Dust besides yellow. When warned there are only two colors and she must leave them alone, she decides to take it upon herself to experiment with pixie dust and the results change everything for the fairies.
The fairies race to save Pixie Hollow but are confronted by a pirate who manages to switch their talents. Working with a new talent proves to be a challenge for the fairies as they have to forget who they used to be and embrace their new identities. Along the way, they meet Crocky and a band of pirates.
Crocky is the most adorable crocodile ever.
The Pirates of Skull Rock welcome aboard the Pirate Fairy to help them with their next adventure. As a Marvel fan it was fun to hear Loki’s voice in this movie, as Tom Hiddleston plays James, a cabin boy. He even sings in the movie too.
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. With laughter, heart, magic and thrills, “The Pirate Fairy” sets sail April 1, 2014.
Although The Pirate Fairy answers so many questions about events that occur before we see Peter Pan, even more questions were raised by my boys. While the movie is seemingly focused on girls and fairies, the story line and adventure is just as appealing for boys and we cannot wait to add this movie to our collection. Hopefully Disney answers those questions and continues the adventure in Pixie Hollow and Neverland.
