Trivia

Budget overruns led to the removal of Sharon Morrill, the then-head of DisneyToons direct-to-DVD division. By that stage, the film had undergone nearly two dozen script rewrites and a dozen directors. Pixar executives John Lasseter and Ed Catmull assumed control of Walt Disney Feature Animation after Disney purchased Pixar in 2006 and stepped in to help salvage the project even though DisneyToons didn't fall under their purview. Lasseter is reported to have said that the film was "virtually unwatchable" and that it would hurt the Disney brand if released in its present format. Morrill was moved to "special projects" and the whole debacle raised serious questions within the company of having a direct-to-DVD division. See more »

Goofs

When Fairy Mary uses the abacus, she does so in entirely the wrong way, as she holds it with the wires running vertically, rather than horizontally. Despite this, the counters never seem to fall down. In addition, sometimes the abacus correctly has two sections but sometimes it only has one. See more »

Quotes

Tinker Bell: Thanks Terence.
Terence: You know my name?
Tinker Bell: Well, sure. Why wouldn't I?
Terence: Well, I don't know. I'm just the dust keeper guy. I'm not exactly seen as the most important fairy in Pixie Hallow.
Tinker Bell: Terence... what are you talking about? You're probably the most important one there is. Without you, no one would have any magic! Why, your talent makes you who you are. You should be proud of it! I mean...
Terence: I am.

A Nice Idea That Became a So-So Movie
3 April 2009 | by (Niagara Region, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

As is always the case with Disney movies, the animation in "Tinker Bell" is absolutely top notch - drawn with an obviously delicate touch, realistic and very, very beautiful. I also have to also give credit to whoever thought up the idea of making the movie. Tinker Bell is a Disney character everyone knows, but about whom we know virtually nothing, so the idea of filling in the little fairy's past was a good one, as was the thought of giving us a glimpse of how fairy life is organized. Personally, though, I thought the story was a bit too advanced for little ones. I also didn't think that - aside from Tinker Bell herself - any of the characters in this movie were particularly memorable, and I was extremely disappointed with the music. Disney can usually be counted on for finding memorable songs to go along with their movies, but the music here was, again, not something that I thought young kids would relate well too, and certainly I won't be singing any of the Gaelic-inspired tunes that were used here. Essentially, it was a nice idea that could probably have been better presented. 5/10
