I received Tinkerbell and the Neverbeast in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
Disney’s iconic fairy, Tinkerbell, who first came to life in the classic “Peter Pan“, has a new full-length movie out on Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital HD. The sixth in the Steve Loter animated Tinkerbell series, Tinkerbell and the Neverbeast, is available everywhere.
Tinkerbell (voiced by Mae Whitman) is present, but spunky, rule-breaking, animal fairy FAWN (voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin) is the star fairy in this story about a huge creature known as the Neverbeast. It’s a movie about listening to your heart and that seldom can you judge a book (or beast) by its cover.
Set in Pixie Hollow, we meet Disney’s new fairies, the Scouts, who are athletic and lead by Nyx (voiced by Rosario Dawson). It doesn’t take long, before Fawn is in front of Queen Clarion (voiced by Anjelica Huston) for recklessly harboring an hawk that could pose a threat to all the fairies and Pixie Hollow.
Before long there’s a low, loud roar and Fawn’s curiosity leads her to the discovery of the Neverbeast–he’s huge, grey with black streaks, rows and rows of teeth and some seriously green eyes. When the pint-sized fairy meets the ginormous Neverbeast the storyline has a feel of The Lion and the Mouse. A thorn is stuck in the Neverbeast’s paw.
Helping those in need sometimes leads to a friendship, as is the case with FAWN and the Neverbeast, she names Gruff.
The storyline moves with Gurff using giant rocks to build something mysterious. It rolls along with a great soundtrack that keeps the action movie.
Throughout the feature the popular fairies of Pixie Hollow help Fawn with her larger than life friend, Gruff.
Nyx discovers an ancient legend about the Neverbeast and as Gruf starts transforming into a form far less friendly than his original introduction, we can’t help but wonder if the legend of the Neverbeast is true. Add to the legend lightning, green ominous clouds and horns and the climax of the movie had even me feeling Pixie Hollow was doomed.
Don’t worry, it’s not the stuff nightmares are made of Tinkerbell and the Neverbeast has a Rating: G.
I attended a screening of Tinkerbell and the Neverbeast at DisneyToon with some of my best blogger buddies!
Rachel Mouton of Acadianas Thrifty Mom even let down her guard and showed her popcorn eating skills!
Tinkerbell and the Neverbeast is The Lion and the Mouse meets The Never Ending Story. It’s a fun family movie. Miss M loves it. For me, I laughed out loud, I cried and sobbed and I cheered. It’s a little of all the best things and no one tells a story quite like Disney!
I recommend Tinkerbell and the Neverbeast.
