The Pirate Fairy Blu-ray + DVD Review
Release Date: April 1, 2014
From the world of “Peter Pan” comes “The Pirate Fairy,” a swashbuckling new adventure about Zarina (voice of Christina Hendricks), a smart and ambitious dust-keeper fairy who’s captivated by Blue Pixie Dust and its endless possibilities. When Zarina’s wild ideas get her into trouble, she flees Pixie Hollow and joins forces with the scheming pirates of Skull Rock, who make her captain of their ship. Tinker Bell (voice of Mae Whitman) and her friends must embark on an epic adventure to find Zarina, and together they go sword-to-sword with the band of pirates led by a cabin boy named James (voice of Tom Hiddleston), who’ll soon be known as Captain Hook himself. With laughter, heart, magic and thrills, “The Pirate Fairy” sets sail April 1, 2014.
The Pirate Fairy is the fifth movie in the Disney Fairies collection and it does not disappoint! We meet Zarina, the keeper of the Pixie Dust, who eventually becomes a Pirate Fairy. Zarina begins to experiment with the Pixie Dust to create a Blue Pixie dust. Unfortunately, her experiments don’t go as planned and she ends up getting into trouble and must leave Pixie Hollow. She comes back and uses the Pixie dust magic to launch an attack on her old home. Tinker Bell and her friends were out of the arena when it happened and weren’t affected by what happened. They were shocked to see it was their old friend, Zarina and an adventure ensues as they go after to get the Pixie Dust.
Tinker Bell and the other pixies learn where Zarina has made her new home: as the captain of a Pirate Ship! They also have to deal with another side effect of Zarina’s homegrown pixie dust: they find themselves with another fairy’s talent instead of their own. That made it more difficult to finish their mission.
We also meet the cabin boy, James, who will eventually be known as Captain Hook. This takes place before he loses hand and we even meet the baby croc who will eventually be the demise of his hand. The baby croc was so cute back then!
My nine year old daughter loved the movie! John even sat down to watch it with us and said he enjoyed it too. If you’re a fan of the either the Disney Fairies, Peter Pan or both, I think you’ll enjoy watching The Pirate Fairy.
