Disney’s The Pirate Fairy may not be in theaters until April 1st, but guests staying at Disney’s Aulani Resort and Spa in Ko Olina, Hawaii were able to enjoy a pre-release screening of the newest swashbuckling fairy adventure on Saturday evening.
Hosted by Mae Whitman (voice of Tinker Bell) and producer Jenni Magee Cook, The Pirate Fairy was a huge hit with vacationers, especially those who are fans of both “Peter Pan” and the “Tinker Bell” movies!
Official Synopsis: From the world of “Peter Pan” comes “The Pirate Fairy,” a swashbuckling new adventure about Zarina (voice of Christina Hendricks), a smart and ambitious dust-keeper fairy who’s captivated by Blue Pixie Dust and its endless possibilities. When Zarina’s wild ideas get her into trouble, she flees Pixie Hollow and joins forces with the scheming pirates of Skull Rock, who make her captain of their ship. Tinker Bell (voice of Mae Whitman) and her friends must embark on an epic adventure to find Zarina, and together they go sword-to-sword with the band of pirates led by a cabin boy named James (voice of Tom Hiddleston), who’ll soon be known as Captain Hook himself.
To celebrate “The Pirate Fairy” setting sail on April 1st, here are three reasons why your family should join in on the animated adventure:
Fairies and Pirates!
There’s a few very catchy songs in ‘The Pirate Fairy’ including my favorite, The Frigate That Flies. According to director Peggy Holmes, having songs added into this film was a natural progression, given that swashbuckling songs are typical of pirate films.
The film’s main cast all joins in on the singing and dancing, with James (voiced by Tom Hiddleston) showing off his vocal abilities in a variety of songs, including in the special feature above.
Not much needs to be said besides that Croc himself is a reason to watch this film. Made while in a drawing room with John Lasseter, Croc was designed to be ‘toddler-like’ and ‘lovable’ and boy is he ever! Hatching before the fairies, Croc becomes the adorable baby of the film, who provides hugs when needed and overall provides a fan favorite to root for.
