Wishes really do come true. No, we’re not talking about election day (although …). Tinkerbell, the whimsical, naughty fairy of “Peter Pan” fame, is starring in her own animated adventure and we must confess, we’re absolutely smitten. So is every kid, tween and teen we know. It’s not Shakespeare, but it’s a sweet story, captivatingly told. The voice talent is considerable – Kristin Chenoweth, Raven-Symone, America Ferrera and Lucy Liu. And we’re hearing raves from the small fry on Pixie Hollow, Disney’s fairy-themed site. So, here’s the movie trailer. Want to know more about the plot? Follow the jump.
Seems Tink isn’t the only fairy out there. She’s one of a legion of magical creatures at Pixie Hollow (now an online destination as well) who make the seasons change. They change the colors of leaves, help butterflies emerge from their cocoons and coax blossoms into full bloom. But the irrepressible Tink doesn’t think her tinkering talents are nearly as cool as those of her brethren. Er, sistern. Her efforts to change bring about disaster, of course, and eventually she figures out that she’s magically special just the way she is. Aw, we could have told her that.
