As the ubiquitous ads enthusiastically state, the “world’s most famous fairy” returns to DVD and Blu-raythis week with Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure. Following last year’s debut movie, this is the second installment of a planned multi-part series starring Peter Pan’s beloved right-hand pixie, Tinker Bell.
Tink’s latest adventure finds her setting off on her own to save Pixie Hollow in a story seemingly geared to increase her appeal to the boys in the audience. In addition to spending most of the movie in boyish garb reminiscent of her future friend Peter’s, her four ethnically-diverse girlfriend fairies are relegated to mere cameos, while guy pal (and future boyfriend?) Terence gets a stronger role this go round.
The fall-themed plot is set in motion when Tinker Bell (voiced again by Mae Whitman) is selected to create a scepter for the upcoming autumn festival. And not just any scepter, this one will bare a rare moonstone that will “recharge” the Pixie Dust Tree, insuring that all the pixies in Pixie Hollow will have plenty of the magical substance for seasons to come.
A great honor for the novice “tinker fairy“, Tink gets right to work, enlisting the help of her favorite “duster fairy” Terence (Jesse McCartney). But a misunderstanding between the two friends leads to the destruction of the precious orb, and there’s only a few days left to the big fall event ...
