"I went to see the movie this afternoon, yes.. here in Mexico is playing in teathers. It is a great, fantastic, incredible, wonderfull and beautiful movie. The movie was in Spanish and it was great, the music and the colors. What I like the most was the story, because it has a deep message, I mean it has to do with your own acceptance to society. Think has to prove and acept by herself what she was meant to be. She is like a mechanich or something like that, but she wants to be different until the moment that she figures it out what she really is. All the fairies are so beautyful, the colors and the 3-D animation. I am wondering why Disney studios did not give this project to Pixar Animation, because I can tell that the animation is a little poor compared with Wall-e, resolution and color are very good, Dubbing was incredible and the story remains me something naive and sweet. I strongly recomend this movie to little childrend, my wife love it, and I am actually cry because it has a lot of love. Oh... and my favorite character is "queso" or "cheese", a little mouse that helps tinker bell trying to capture weeds, and my favorite fairy is Vidia, because she is kind of evil but no so much, and she is prettier than tink. Queen Clayron is so pixie and understanding person, and tink's friends are so funy, specially the fat guy. I can't reveal the end, but I can say that Wendy is in the movie (yes... the Pete's friend). Finally, it seems that think has a friend that likes her a lot. I can't wait to compare this movie with the blu-ray version. My expections about this movie were so high and I can say that well done. Thank's Disney. I am so happy to see an incredible and pixie Movie."
Utterly gorgeous to look at and sure to delight all young ch

"I just watched TINKER BELL on Blu-ray and I was quite impressed. Time was that direct-to-DVD meant, well, bad. Low production values, second tier talent, and a disposable story. Lately, however, a number of studios have begun struggling with ways to develop a business model that allowed them to make profits on projects that bypassed theater releases. For instance, MGM has had some success with the Stargate movies, which have a solid but niche market, enough fans to buy DVDs with enthusiasm, but not enough general public support to justify a general release into theaters. Universal has reputedly been thinking of the possibility of doing the same with a SERENITY sequel, a film that merely broke even (after international sales) in the theaters, but has been a huge success on disc. My point is that it is no longer possible to dismiss anything that makes its debut on disc.
TINKER BELL is a great example of the greatly increased quality of direct-to-DVD productions. Visually, this is just a stunning movie. Story apart, there is never a moment when the film isn't utterly riveting. As an adult I found it great to look at from beginning to end. I think small children, especially young girls, will find it entrancing. The story isn't very complex or nuanced, but there are some nice messages of empowerment. If classic Disney frequently was mired in notions that the primary hope of women was for someday their prince to come, this one's theme is of a young fairy striving to be all that she can be. The emphasis is on what she can make of herself, not only the need for a romantic Other to make her life complete.
I mentioned the relative lack of talent in traditional direct-to-DVD releases. That is not the case here. Tinker Bell is voiced by Mae Whitman, who many will know as the delightfully forgetable Ann on ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT (viewers of the show will know what I meant by that). Some of the main fairies are voiced by such excellent performers as Kristin Chenoweth, America Ferrera, Angelica Huston, Lucy Liu, and Jane Horrocks.
Honestly, the movie is not going to blow most adults away. This is very definitely a kids film. As someone who raised a daughter as a single dad, however, I am confident that small children, especially young girls, are going to love this movie. And it is something that adults will be able to enjoy watching a first time and not find too unpleasant on the unaccountable repeated viewings that very young children love to engage in (there are still many animated movies that my daughter watched a few dozen times that I have nearly every scene memorized).
If you have a small child, this is a very good movie to consider picking up, especially if the child in question is a girl. It features very high production standards, is unbelievably beautiful to look at, and has a much better than average moral. And it is clearly intended to be the first of at least two films, since an insert inside the case advertises a new Tinker Bell film to be released in the fall of 2009."
Tinkerbell; She not just for kids anymore

"I saw Peter Pan as a boy when it first hit the theaters. Yes I know; I'm giving away my age. Back on topic, I thought Tinkerbell was the only good thing in that movie. That, and flying over a foggy London at midnight.
I was chronically late for scout meetings because I had to see the opening scene from Disney's Wonderful World of Color which featured the Tinkster making magical fireworks.
In this movie, I was once again charmed by the character.
Suspend your cynicism and let the movie take you to a simpler, sweeter place and time. The world will still be there when you get back."

"We really enjoyed the new Tinkerbell movie. It kept the attention of two of my grandchildren throughout the whole movie."
