Review - Tinkerbell and the Pirate Fairy 3D

At the weekend we were invited to attend a preview screening of Tinker Bell and the Pirate Fairy. Tinker Bell and the Pirate Fairy is the latest in a series of Tinker Bell films. I've not watched any of them all the way through, but I know that Harry has enjoyed watching them, and I've picked up bits and pieces here and there from when they've been on. The latest installment tells the story of Zarina the inquisitive dust-keeper fairy, who leaves Pixie Hollow in disgrace after her experiments with pixie dust go wrong. She returns a year later to steal the important blue pixie dust, having teamed up in the meantime with the pirates of Skull Rock, who want to make their own fairy dust so that they can plunder the world's treasures in a flying pirate ship.

It's a light-hearted and fun story, with plenty of entertaining adventures. The story takes place before the action depicted in Peter Pan, and this film contains a few hints towards the familiar Peter Pan story, featuring the voice of Tom Hiddleston as the young Captain Hook.

Not only was this Mia's first trip to the cinema, it was her first 3D film. At 2 1/2 she is probably still a bit too young for the cinema, although we managed to keep her fairly still in her seat with a packet of chocolate buttons! Animated films always seem to work well in 3D and this was no exception, the 3D effects definitely add to the experience.

If you are looking for a film to watch with the children over half-term then I'd definitely recommend Tinker Bell and the Pirate Fairy, and it's not just one for little girls either, as Harry (5) really enjoyed it too!
