If you've ever seen Disney's 1953 animated classic Peter Pan, particularly when you were a child, Tinker Bell was a charming character that probably made a big impact on your young psyche. Fifty-five years later, Disney released a direct-to-DVD animated feature titled Tinker Bell which chronicles her life from the very beginning.
As someone who grew up on a steady diet of The Wonderful World of Disney, classic Disney animation was a regular staple of my viewing and while it took a wee bit of getting used to the 3D version of Tinker Bell, I quickly came to cherish her as much as the wonderful handcrafted 2D original. While the tools of the artist have changed from pen and ink to computers, the love they express in their work shows. This generation has taken up the torch passed along from Disney's Nine Old Men, the fabled core animators who created much of the classical Disney library. Ollie Johnston, the last of the Nine passed away on April 14, 2008.From official release/information:
Product Description: Born into the fantastic world of Pixie Hollow, Tinker Bell thinks her fairy talent as a tinker isn't as special or important as the other fairies talents. But when Tink tries to change who she is, she creates nothing but disaster! With encouragement from her friends Rosetta, Silvermist, Fawn, and Iridessa, Tink learns the key to solving her problems lies in her unique tinker abilities and discovers that when she's true to herself, magical things can happen.
