It is a sequel to the 2008 film, Tinker Bell, and revolves around Tinker Bell, a fairy character created by J. M. Barrie in his play Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up, and featured in subsequent adaptations, especially in animated works by the Walt Disney Company. The film was produced using digital 3D modeling. It was released on DVD and Blu-ray by Walt Disney Home Video on October 27, 2009.[2]

Plot

The nature-talent fairies are bringing to the mainland the season of leaves, hibernation, chilly breezes, and pumpkins: autumn. Meanwhile, Tinker Bell and dust-talent fairies like Terence (Jesse McCartney) are staying in Pixie Hollow. Tinker Bell is trying to make a "Pixie Express". But it fails just as she is called to meet Queen Clarion (Angelica Houston), Fairy Mary (Jane Horrocks), and The Minister of Autumn (John DiMaggio).

They show her a magical moonstone and explain to her its powers. Every eight years, there is a blue harvest moon in Pixie Hollow. When the light of this moon passes through the moonstone, it creates blue pixie dust to rejuvenate the pixie dust tree. The Autumn Revelry is the associated event during which the fairies gather to collect the dust.

A new scepter is to be made to raise the moonstone, and Tinker Bell has been recommended. Although Tinker Bell has made mistakes in the past, Fairy Mary explains that tinker fairies learn from them, most of the time. Tinker Bell accepts the task, as well as help from Terence. But as the work on the scepter progresses, Tinker Bell begins to have trouble with Terence, who is trying too hard to be helpful. An accident occurs, causing the scepter and the stone to break. Tinker Bell sets out on in a balloon she's created to find a magic mirror, which, according to legend, granted two of three wishes before becoming lost. Tinker Bell intends to use the last wish to repair the moonstone.

Along the way, she meets Blaze, a brave firefly. Tinker Bell finally discovers the mirror, but she accidentally wastes the wish. She is found by Terence, who has been following her after discovering her plans and the fragments of the moonstone in her empty house.

Tinker Bell and Terence start back to Pixie Hollow. Along the way, Tinker Bell fixes the scepter using a white gem from the top of the mirror, the scepter pieces Terence has wisely brought, and the moonstone pieces, all set at just the right angle. She discovers the magic of friendship, humility, and love. Thanks to inspired teamwork with Terence, she is ready to give the scepter to Queen Clarion.

When she unveils the scepter, the assembled fairies are alarmed to see the fragments of the moonstone. However, the broken moonstone shards create an unexpected benefit: they increased the surface area through which the rays of the blue moon could pass, creating the most blue pixie dust ever seen in Pixie Hollow.

Cast

The voice actors are largely the same as in the previous film.[3] America Ferrera did not return to voice Fawn and was replaced by newcomer Angela Bartys.

Crew

  • Director - Klay Hall
  • Writer - Evan Spiliotopoulos[4]

Production

Because the film takes place in the cooler weather of autumn, costume design for Tinker Bell called for a more realistic outfit. Designers added a long-sleeve shirt, shawl, leggings and boots to her costume. Said director Klay Hall, "In the earlier films, she wears her iconic little green dress. However, it being fall and there being crispness in the air, in addition to this being an adventure movie, her dress just wouldn't work".[5]

Music

The score to the film was composed by Joel McNeely, who scored the first Tinker Bell film. He recorded the music with an 82-piece ensemble of the Hollywood Studio Symphony and Celtic violin soloist Máiréad Nesbitt at the Sony Scoring Stage.[6]

Soundtrack

The soundtrack was released on September 22, 2009, and contains songs from and inspired by the film. The soundtrack also contains "Fly to Your Heart" from the first film.[7] The lead single from the soundtrack is "Gift of a Friend" by Demi Lovato.

Disney Fairies: Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure is an adventure game for the Nintendo DS. Like the previous game, the player plays as Tinker Bell in a free-roaming Pixie Hollow, using the touch screen to maneuver the character, move to other maps and play various minigames. The player must, for example, touch an arrow on the screen to move to another map or characters to speak to them. The touch screen is used in the item repair minigames as well. For example, the player must trace the pattern of a groove to clear it or rub the item to clean stains. The DS microphone is used to create wind to loosen leaves and petals or blow dust from an item being repaired. The highest rank on 'Tinker bell' is Champion of the Craft.

Different gameplay mechanics can also be acquired in-game, which require specific use of the touch screen. These include:

  • the ability to glow by holding the stylus directly above Tinker Bell. This can be used to reveal hidden items.
  • drawing a circle on-screen to perform a somersault. Used to collect falling items.
  • drawing a triangular shape on-screen to awaken plants throughout the game.
  • petting or tickling insects. Used to collect lost insects and awaken sleeping insects. Can also be used on random insects that roam about the maps. Items will be awarded.

Also present in the game is a "Friendship Meter", which serves as an indicator to measure the player's relationship with other characters. It can be filled by presenting the respective character with their favorite item, accomplishing tasks or even simply speaking to them. The meter can also be depleted, however, by not speaking to the character for extended periods of time, giving an unwanted gift or missing a repair deadline.

Features:

  • Create unique dresses, outfits and accessories
  • Mini-games, such as catching dew drops, painting ladybugs and colleting threads from sleeping silkworms
  • Multiplayer modes
  • Pixie Hollow integration

Other media

A 32-page interactive digital children's book was released by Disney Digital Books in September 2009.[13]

Additional sequels

Three additional sequels titled Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue,[14][15] Tinker Bell and the Pixie Hollow Games and Tinker Bell and the Mysterious Winter Woods have been announced.
