Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue is an computer animated film based on the Disney Fairies franchise, produced by DisneyToon Studios. It is the sequel to the 2009 film, Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure 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 Studios Home Entertainment on September 21, 2010.



Years before meeting Wendy and the Lost Boys, Tinker Bell (Mae Whitman) meets nine-year-old Lizzy Griffiths (Lauren Mote), a little girl with a steadfast belief in the power of pixie dust and the magical land of fairies. During the fairies' summer visit to the flowering meadows of England, Tinker Bell ends up getting trapped in a small fairy house Lizzy had built so she could catch a fairy. Tinker Bell is brought to Lizzy's house, where the two form a special bond with each other. However, when Lizzy's scientifically minded, widowed father discovers Tinker Bell's presence in his household, he attempts to deliver her to the museum for study. When Tinker Bell's rival Vidia (Pamela Adlon) is taken in her place, Tinker Bell and her fellow fairies (Raven-Symoné, Lucy Liu, Kristin Chenoweth and Angela Bartys) launch a daring rescue to save her. Tinker Bell takes a huge risk, putting her own safety and the future of all fairykind in jeopardy.


The voice actors are largely the same as in the previous films.[2][3]


The score to the film was composed by Joel McNeely, who scored the first two Tinker Bell films. Unlike the previous movies, no official soundtrack has been released.



The film was released in the United States on September 21, 2010 and is expected to be released in other territories as well. Like the previous two films, Great Fairy Rescue debuted on the Disney Channel in November 2010.

Sometime during 2010, Disney theatrically released the film in the Los Angeles area in order to make it eligible for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. Disney qualified the film in an unsuccessful effort to expand the category's final nominations from 3 to 5, as 5 films can only be nominated in a calendar year in which 16 or more animated films were submitted.[4]

In the United Kingdom and Ireland the film was released in cinemas on August 13, 2010, following a premiere held at the Mayfair Hotel in London on August 8, attended by Lauren Mote."[5]
