My opinion right after watching the film

My opinion right after watching the film is that I am liking how they are sticking to Tinkerbell’s character, while not making her as hateable. It is interesting that it focused on her relationship with Terrance rather than the other Disney Fairies, though there is a predictability factor to this one as well.

Production

There is no new information on the production of this film.

Story

The film starts with Pixie Hollow preparing for the season of Fall, as most of the fairies are in the mainland, while Terrance (Jesse McCartney) and Tinkerbell (Mae Whitman) are in Pixie Hollow. It is instantly clear that the film will be more about their relationship, as his Dust fairy workers tease him about Tinkerbell. They work together to help with an invention called the Pixie Express, which fails, and she gets annoyed.

Queen Clarion (Anjelica Houston), Fairy Mary (Jane Horrocks), and the leader of Fall Redleaf (John DiMaggio) call her over to tell her about the mystical moonstone, which is presented every 8 years to collect blue pixie dust to strengthen the normal pixie dust tree.

She returns to Terrance to tell him the good news, and since he knows so much about it (since it does involve and affects the Dust fairies), it is only common sense that her best friend will help her with making the staff for the moonstone. They get along at first and are thrilled, but he thinks she is getting a bit clumsy, and she is slowly growing more and more annoyed with his constant paranoia and supervision. We all know where this goes. It comes to a point where she argues about him bringing back something that is not helpful, and she knocks it over, which of course breaks the staff and moonstone. Tinkerbell kicks him out for screwing up, and we start to see her b****y side a lot more. Aren’t you all proud that I am trying to avoid profanity?

The only female friend of Tinkerbells that has any sort of relevance in this film is Silvermist (Lucy Liu), who is more than accustomed to Tinkerbell’s temper, tells him to give her time for her to come to her senses before they speak again. She decides to go to theater night after Bobble (Rob Paulsen) and Clank (Jeff Bennet) come to visit her, and ask about the scepter and moonstone.

Tinkerbell and Lost Treasure
Being the big theater fan she is, Fairy Mary is there, and asks Tinkerbell about the moonstone, only to get worried. As Tinkerbell gets bored with the story, Fawn (Angela Bartys) blocks her exit by sitting beside her. She onyl pays attention after Mary tells her the story about pirates kidnapping a fairy, and making her give access to them about one more wish on a far away land. Tinkerbell then comes up with a plan to leave for a few days (since she has like 3 more days before the moonstone ceremony).

Tinkerbell asks everyone for more pixie dust, from the Dust sector, to Iridessa (Raven Symone), Rosetta (Kristen Chenoweth), and Silvermist, but they all say no, since they are still in the process of bringing Fall to the mainland. Silvermist tells her to go to Terrance in hope that they make up, but the see you next tuesday Tinkerbell asks him for more dust without apologizing, and when he asks her why, she gets mad, claiming that a real friend would not ask why. Hell yes they do Tinkerbell, especially if it is against the rules, and you were dead ass wrong anyways.

Forced to stick with the dust she already has, she makes a cotton balloon to sprinkle pixie dust to go to the far off island that I do not care to remember identifying. A firefly named Blaze (Eliza Pollack Zebert) eats up all of her food, but after trying to kick him out, he flashes to the map, and she uses him to realize that they went the wrong way. After things done get screwed up with the balloon, and ends up stranded, she ends up dreaming about Terrance. A bunch of random things happen, and Tinkerbell is out of her luck. A bunch of bugs Blaze spoke to helped them to get to where she needs to go.

Terrance decides to check up out of her, and sees that it was not just the staff that was broken, but the moonstone as well. He also sees drafts of where she was going, and what she took, which of course points him to go find her.

Tinkerbell ends up finding the mirror, but as she starts to repeat her mistake with Terrance onto Blaze, she tells him she wishes he would shut up for a minute, which the mirror grants. Realizing that she blew it, she cries, having no hope in any of this, and feels bad for everything she did, since it is her fault. She sees Terrance in the mirror, and thinks that she is delusional until he touches her shoulder. They make up, he ends up finding her balloon, and he tells her he stole some dust to find her. They end up finding a solution to the moonstone, and they barely make it to the ceremony on time. Once they see that they used metals and strings to hold up the broken pieces with the reflective diamond in the middle, everyone is horrified. Turns out, the moon hits them nicely, and they produced more dust than they have in centuries. The ceremony proceeds as usual, and the ceremony proceeds as usual, with the narrator reminding us that friendship is the most important treasure there is.

Like the first film, this film is utterly predictable, but there is a lot of charm that makes it tolerable and stand out. The characterization of TInkerbell is stronger, and closer to Peter Pan. Terrance is a bit generic, but everyone is very friendly, and he has good character. Their friendship holds a lot of weight, and if you cannot get into their friendship, it will be hard to like this film, since this cast is not as versatile as the last film.

Characters

The characters are definitely not as good in this film as they were in the first film, and I am going to keep it real. A lot of it is because only two characters received screentime for the most part, and the stellar side cast was missing.

Tinkerbell
Tinkerbell was definitely more unlikable and intolerable in this film, and I found her to be closer to her original incarnation. She did learn her lesson in the end, but she is a trip and a piece of work.
Terrence
We saw him and Tinkerbell interact briefly in the first film, but he is the deuteragonist in the film. He is kind of a satellite character in the fact that he is nothing but the nice friend for Tinkerbell, who has a slight crush on her. He is not a bad character, but he is kind of an extension. I felt bad for him, so I guess that is good.
Blaze
He is comic relief that did not irritate me.
Silvermist
She was barely in the film, but was in it a lot more than her comrades. Silvermist was the moral code to connect Terrence and Tinkerbell together, but that is it.
Fairy Mary
Fairy Mary had a decent part in the first film, but I put here here, since there is not as many characters in this one. I like her stern, blunt, but motherly behavior in regards to Tinkerbell.
Queen Clarion
Queen Clarion is very angelic, and warming. She could easily be very strict, but she sees all of the fairies as her children, who needs to be tended to.

Animation

I like how the setting accommodated and captured the atmosphere of Autumn, but otherwise, the animation is still as nice and sophisticated as it was in the first film.

Music

The music is the exact same. I forgot that this was the time where Disney would have their live action actors/actresses to cover songs all throughout the company as a cheap marketing ploy.

Reception at Release

When the film was released on October 27th, 2009, it made about 8 million in theaters I believe, and made about $50 million.

Reception Today

People do not really talk about this film, other than it is a sequel to Tinkerbell. I have not heard any complaints about it, so that is good I guess.

Final Score

Story: 6.5/10

Characters: 6/10

Animation: 7.5/10

Music: 7/10

27/40 = 68%

  1. This is my least favorite Tinker Bell film although I do like it. It just moves away from the team and I like all the faeries and Tink’s a bit of a grump. Still a nice little movie for little girls I think and some decent animation in the forest

    1. This is becoming my least favourite film of the franchise as well, though I have not watched the last two films yet. It seems like in the films, they either focus on only the team or Terrence; never both.
