Well, good day, Peter Pan fans! If you're like most, you love a suspenseful work of fiction. The Tinker Bell movies may be suspenseful, but none of them contain as much action as Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast! Sadly, it is also the last of the Fairies films. DisneyToon Studios will concentrate on other franchises now, and that is reasonable. The Fairies franchise has existed for 10 years - remember, there's an extensive book series. But a bridge has been left out. Can you guess what it is?
Peter Pan still does not meet Tinker Bell in Legend of the NeverBeast. Aarrrgh! He is the primary reason I watch the Fairies films! The audience needs to see how he met his best friend! According to the books, Peter met Tink while he was try…Read more >
Once upon a time, there were two sisters. One of them possessed a marvelous talent: the power to magically make ice and snow. Since she had this talent, she provided hours of snowy fun to herself and her sister. But it was not meant to last. The sisters proved vulnerable to each other's climate of habit and were subsequently forced to be separated. They felt sad and scared.
One day, a terrible winter storm accidentally broke loose and ravaged the sisters' home kingdom. During the storm, the cold sister was hiding, and the warm sister had to find her in order to thaw the land. But as she did, she suffered an unrecoverable icy injury! Both sisters eventually met in the center of their homeland and stopped the storm from further raging by perf…Read more >
What if immigrants from Japan came to rebuild San Francisco after it was wrecked by the 1906 earthquake, and rebuilt it with the technology and architecture of Tokyo? That was the beginning of San Fransokyo, the setting of Big Hero 6.
I come from the Fog City, so I was flattered to see this alternate future version of my favorite city. Of course, that's not what really happened, but we certainly have been influenced by the Japanese. Actually, after the 1906 earthquake, many Japanese immigrants moved to an unharmed district called the Western Addition. It became known as Nihonmachi, or Japantown, because they brought a very Japanese character there, and is the largest of only three Japantowns in the United States today!
Another notable Japane…Read more >
Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast, the seventh Tinker Bell film, will be released on March 3, 2015. And it may also be the last Fairies film. From what I hear, this one will be darker and edgier than all the previous films. That's exciting, but in order to end on a high note, this franchise has to completely bridge the gap between Tinker Bell and Peter Pan. If we don't see him, I have a creative solution up my sleeve, which I will not reveal at the moment.
Anyway, I wanted to share a short film that I simply could not believe, called "Tink'n About Animals". In it, Fawn teaches Tinker Bell, Rosetta, Iridessa, Silvermist and Vidia about the names of different animal groups.
For those of you who do not know me, I wish there were more …

This blog post is a sequel to a previous post and a rant on Disney's Fairies.
Ahoy! I just saw The Pirate Fairy, the latest installment in the Tinker Bell film saga. I paid attention to the news about it since August 2013. In my opinion, this is the best Fairies film so far. It starts to bridge the gap between Tinker Bell's home world of Pixie Hollow and Peter Pan's world. We get to see Captain Hook and Tick-Tock the Crocodile in their first appearances. And if you are a Loki Laufeyson fan, you should see it because Tom Hiddleston voices Captain Hook. He even sings!
He sings. There is something significant about "The Frigate That Flies." It is only the second song in the Fairies series that is sung by characters onscreen, the other one being …
