I did receive a free trip to LA and DVD to facilitate this review but all faith, trust, and Pixie Dust are my own
Talking with Disney Animators and the producers of Tinkerbell and the Legend of the Neverbeast really gave me a great insight into this new Disney animated feature. Yesterday it came out on DVD, and I loved it even more the second time that I watched it because I could see all the love and passion that went into the animation, music, and voices of Tinkerbell and her fairy friends.
Tinkerbell and the Legend of the Neverbeast is a story about Fawn, the animal fairy, and her love for creatures big and small. From time to time, this love gets her in trouble with the other fairies as she brings in creatures that might actually cause a bit of chaos in Pixie Hollow. (Like a baby hawk that was oh too cute to leave alone) Let’s just say Fawn really knows how to bring a little excitement to the fairy realm.
The next installment in the Fairy series is such a fun film because it’s told from a different perspective. Fawn, voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin, is fun, bubbly and a little bit adventurous. Her curiosity is her best trait but often leads her to get in a wee bit of trouble. That is certainly true when she discovers the giant fluffy beast that she affectionately names Gruff, aka the Neverbeast. In her eyes, he’s just another creature to love, but to Nyx and the Scout fairies he’s something that could bring danger to the whole community.
Tinkerbell and the Legend of the Neverbeast isn’t just another Disney movie. It’s an amazing movie that has a whole lot of heart and soul in it. I am not the kind of mom that enjoys watching kids’ movies, but this movie is one of my favorites. It has great lessons for kids, heck, it has great lessons for adults too. The animation in it is absolutely stunning. The setting of Pixie Hollow is animated in such a way that it is really breath taking.
The music in the film is also really unique. You hear a lot of fun sounds that you wouldn’t really hear in a Disney movie. It was really neat to hear Bleu talk about how he found the sounds for the fairies and the storm that threatens Pixie Hollow. Make sure to check out my interview about the music in Tinkerbell and the Legend of the Neverbeast. Then watch the movie again to see if you can find those sounds.
This quirky mama gives Tinkerbell and the Legend of the Neverbeast two enthusiastic thumbs up for it’s spunk, inspiration, and fun nature. Any movie that can keep my attention and be a kid’s movie at the same time is definitely worth a family movie night.
