What would you do if you met a fairy? Witness the historic moment when Tinker Bell first meets a human being ... and it's not who you think. Years before meeting Wendy and the Lost Boys, Tinker Bell met Lizzy, a little girl with a steadfast belief in the power of pixie dust and the magic land of fairies. During the fairies' summer visit to the flowering meadows of England, two very different worlds unite for the first time and Tink develops a special bond with a curious child in need of a friend. As her fellow fairies launch a daring rescue, Tinker Bell takes a huge risk, putting her own safety and the future of all fairykind in jeopardy. Experience Disney's astonishing all-new movie about the true power of faith and friendship. Bursting with excitement and imagination, TINKER BELL AND THE GREAT FAIRY RESCUE is magical entertainment for the whole family. You might even learn to fly.
Friendship and faith are two key components of happiness, and Tinker Bell is almost bursting with excitement at the thought of sharing a glorious summer on the mainland with her fellow fairies. As soon as she and the other fairies touch down on the mainland, Tinker Bell takes her friend Vidia and heads out to search for human treasures and things in need of fixing. What she finds is a young girl named Lizzy whose father is too busy to really listen to her, who absolutely believes in fairies with all her heart, and who desperately needs a friend. Lizzy creates a fairy haven that Tinker Bell simply can't resist, and, thanks in part to a prank by Vidia, Tinker Bell ends up getting captured by Lizzy. What begins as imprisonment against Tinker Bell's will soon blossoms into a friendship and a fix-it project for Tinker Bell that's unlike any she's ever attempted. Meanwhile, Vidia and the other fairies embark upon an elaborate and extremely dangerous plan to save Tinker Bell. The question is, can Tinker Bell improve Lizzy's life without jeopardizing the entire fairy world? Unlike the two previous Tinker Bell films, this film takes place almost exclusively in the human world--kind of a return to the original Peter Pan concept. What remains the same are the striking clarity and saturated colors of the film, Tinker Bell's unbridled enthusiasm and optimism, and her innate sense of how to make things better. Lauren Mote voices Lizzy, Michael Sheen voices her father Dr. Griffiths, and both join the talented cast that once again includes Mae Whitman, Kristin Chenoweth, Jesse McCartney, Raven-Symoné, and Pamela Adlon. Bonus features include deleted scenes, the "How to Believe" music video featuring Bridgit Mendler, a fairy trivia game, and footage of a fairy house design contest at Epcot Center.
