Tinker Bell and her friends must band together when former Dust Keeper Zarina kidnaps the Blue Pixie Dust for a group of pirates that includes a young version of Captain James Hook.  If they don’t get the Blue Pixie Dust back, Pixie Hollow won’t be able to create Pixie Dust anymore. Along the way, they find their powers have been switched by Zarina and one of them befriends a baby version of Crocky (the infamous crocodile who swallowed a clock and wants to bite Captain Hook on the butt).    PIRATE FAIRY is another fun entry in the Pixie Hollow series as it explores the origins of Captain James Hook (voiced by Tom Hiddleston best known for his performance as Loki in the THOR movies and THE AVENGERS).   It is fun for all ages as it teaches that friendship will go all bounds to accept one who think they are an outsider.   It also opens the door for Pixie Dust alchemy with different colors of Pixie Dust that do different things.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES:

SECOND STAR TO THE RIGHT: THE LEGACY OF NEVER LAND- a promotional featurette on PIRATE FAIRY and how Never Land and the original Peter Pan tale inspired ideas for the PIRATE FAIRY when they decided to include a young version of the man who would become Captain Hook

CROC-U-MENTARY- a brief look at Crocky, and the real life crocodiles and alligators in this tongue-in-cheek featurette

THE MAKING OF THE FRIGATE THAT FLIES- behind-the-scenes with Tom Hiddelston at the recording of songs for PIRATE FAIRY.


Also included on the disc are two fun animated shorts (one involving  treasure chest), deleted scenes (in sketch form) with introductions from the director and producer of PIRATE FAIRY, Sing-Along Songs, and previews for other Disney releases including the next film in the Tinker Bell/ Pixie Hollow universe, LEGEND OF THE NEVERBEAST.

 

The combo pack also has PIRATE FAIRY in standard definition on DVD and a digital HD copy of Pirate Fairy for streaming and downloading for Smart Phones, Tablets, Computers, and TV.

 

FINAL ANALYSIS: THE PIRATE FAIRY is fun for all ages, another fun entry in the TINKER BELL series of animated films.
