Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure Parent Guide
Parent Movie Review
Tinker Bell may have been introduced as a sidekick in Disney’s Peter Pan, but the little green fairy is well on her way to being a star in her own right. Telling the story of her life before she met the boy who never wanted to grow up, this direct-to-home-video animation is the second in a potential series, and the sequel to the 2008 movie Tinker Bell.
In The Lost Treasure, Tinker Bell (voice of Mae Whitman) is busily engineering clever inventions to make life easier and more efficient in her home of Pixie Hollow, when Queen Clarion (Anjelica Huston) summons her. A little nervous at first (because she has a tendency to be clumsy when gracefulness is required and a bit cavalier about rules), she is surprised to learn she has been chosen for a special assignment.
Each year, a new scepter is made to hold a precious moonstone, which plays a valuable part in the Fairies’ autumn celebration and restoring the Kingdom’s much needed source of power: pixie dust. This time, the very important honor and responsibility of making it has been bestowed upon her.
Anxious to do a wonderful job, Tinker Bell wastes no time setting about the task. Her chum Terrance (voice of Jesse McCartney) is very excited for her, and offers his help. But as the stress of the delicate operation increases and the time to finish the project decreases, the relationship between the two pals becomes strained to the breaking point. When a misunderstanding results in a tragic incident, Tinker Bell’s temper snaps!
Now, because she has alienated her best allies, she is left to her own devices to remedy the situation. Having heard about a legendary lost treasure that can grant a wish to whomever locates it, the little fairy sets out to find this magical solution to her problem.
Her quest will bring new challenges and dangers (which may cause some mild alarm for very young viewers). However, the adventure also introduces her to new friends and alternative ways of looking at the circumstances that have led to her lonely and desperate journey.
And it is here where the true treasure is found. Sharing lessons about friendship, forgiveness, personal accountability and the power that can come from working together rather than alone, this beautifully crafted Disney tale is a gem for the whole family.Starring Mae Whitman, Jesse McCartney, Anjelica Huston.
