Tinker Bell and The Great Fairy Rescue Blu-Ray
This third “Tinker Bell” made for video film is an improvement over the others but is still geared towards a very limited audience. That audience being 4-9 year old girls. While made for the “whole family”, there is not much appeal for boys or older family members in this Disney blu-ray disc set. Tink and company go to England in the summer and Tink becomes captured by a little girl, who needs a friend. The other fairies thus mount a rescue to save Tink. However, Tink is a ooperative hostage and befriends the little girl, and the experience enriches both their lives.
Technically, this blu-ray disc set is much better looking than the past Tinker Bell releases, with far more detail and colorful scenes as computer graphics improve. It is on par with some of the Pixar titles for picture quality. Sound is the usual DTS-MA surround, with plenty of punch.
Extras include a truck load of previews (natch), and an entire second blu-ray disc with extras that include :
An exclusive look at “Tangled”, which is an action feature that may wake up the boys in the audience, 14 minutes of deleted scenes (hmm-I think the did a bunch of rewriting on this one), some fairly easy games for the young ones, a feature on building some of the sets, a music video, and a lot of scenes extras (black and white composite animation, storyboards and full color scenes). This set also comes with a standard dvd of the movie.
While Disney animators continue to improve the “Tinker Bell” series, I really wish they would aim for a larger audience. This set shows how far the series has come technically. Disney’s magical mascot and goodwill ambassador deserves a little more effort in writing to bring in a bigger audience.
