Goofs

When Periwinkle is re-visiting the past, high up in the air on the snow-flake pedestal, Lord Milori comes and joins her to tell her a tragic story of the past. It is later revealed that he cannot fly anymore, so he couldn't visit her there without aid. No such aid is visible. See more »

Tinkering Tales
18 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Innocent and endearing Tinker Bell (Mae Whitman) returns with another tale from the magical realms of faeries. Summer fairies and winter fairies don't mix, as nature has planned each of their roles with forethought. The wings of one will freeze in the cold, while the others whittle away in the heat. Thus both lands are separated with fairies in both quarters bringing harmony across the divide. Nonetheless Tinker Bell was never one to avoid adventure and enchanted by the snowy bliss of winter decides to cross to the forbidden other side, where see encounters her white-haired twin Perriwinkle (Lucy Hale). These events counter the rules of both faerie clans, placing them in conflict with Lord Milori (Timothy Dalton) of the Winter Faeries and Queen Clarion (Anjelica Huston) of the Summer Faeries.

Full of sparkle and some charming characters, Tinker Bell's adventures in Never Never Land are just what they must be: an engrossing experience of wonder for youthful eyes, devoid of unnecessary brutality or subtextual messages for adults (well... not entirely... but almost). Thus a movie focused directly towards its target audience, but with enough sweet allure to at least keep parents in focus. Nonetheless Disney fails to avoid worrying trends to 'barbiefy' the faeries into slender voluptuous dolls. Never a Disney classic, but solidly entertaining with some dazzling Indian made animation (apparently a stark improvement on previous Tinker Bell movies) and enchanting enough to satisfy youth, while not dissuading adults.
