“Tinkerbell and the Great Fairy Rescue”

Yes, I am actually taking the time to review a Disney DVD sequel…and you wanna know why? Because this is the first shitty Disney sequel we’ve seen that is actually, you know, not shitty. Seriously, the “Toy Story” movies aside, most of them are downright unwatchable — yeah, I’m talking to you “Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch has a Glitch”! — so, we picked up “Tinkerbell and the Great Fairy Rescue” at the library with much hesitation. In fact, if I had been able to pry the DVD from Greta’s sweaty little hands when we left, I might have just ditched it outright. But, wow, am I glad she held on tightly, because this movie kinda rocked.

Beautiful animation (Mrs. Stay-at-home-Yeti wanted to live in that gorgeous little fairy house!), stellar voice work (Michael Sheen? Kristen Chenoweth? Lucy Lui? Who knew?!) and a very sweet little story that made me tear up all four times that we watched it in three days. Yep, it’s that good!

Surprisingly, the extras on this one are pretty first-rate too, especially the deleted scenes. I don’t wanna give anything away by telling you what my favorite was, but, make sure and watch the scene with the Dad as a young boy…totally magical! Really, it is terribly sweet and gives the story whole other layers of meaning…

Also, in watching the extras realized I know the director, Bradley Raymond. Small world, huh? Great job, Brad! Greta and I loved your movie, even it did make me cry like a little girl…
