Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue review

Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue (U, 76 mins)
Director: Bradley Raymond
★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆

Somewhat surprisingly hitting cinemas rather than the usual direct to video route for Disney spinoffs, this animated adventure for Peter Pan’s tempestuous and resourceful fairy friend sees Tink and her pals spending summer at fairy camp where they must stay hidden from humans, with the fun beginning when she’s found by a little girl with the standard inattentive daddy issues. With its rather plastic looking CGI and bland songs, this is shiny and colourful stuff but hardly magical. Quite why there are modern speaking fairies with American accents in Edwardian England isn’t broached, and there’s no notion of Peter other than the very briefest visual allusions, but while it doesn’t take any chances or offer much for anyone else, under eights will find little to complain about.
