Ever wonder how bunnies knew how to hop? Or monkeys learned how to Ook Ook? Well, the answer’s pretty obvious. They were taught.
See if you knew anything about anything, then you’d know that there are fairies in Pixie Hollow who do all sorts of wonderful things for this world. One of them, thanks to the animal-type fairies, is to work with all the baby animals, teaching them how to… well, be themselves.
That pretty much sums up Fawn, the main star of Disney’s newest Pixie Hollow adventure TinkerBell and the Legend of the Neverbeast (On sale now!). Fawn (voiced by Once Upon a Time’s Ginnifer Goodwin), is a sucker for any animal, no matter how big or scary they may be.
At times, that can prove dangerous (like when she brings a fairy-eating baby hawk right through Pixie Hollow). She just has a soft spot for all animals and can’t help but… well, help them out.
When an enormous and mysterious beast (called the Neverbeast) shows up in Pixie Hollow, strange things really start happening. Is he here to destroy the entire world? Or save it?
Neverbeast sports some truly beautiful animation, full of bright and vibrant colors. Things do get a bit dark when the Neverbeast’s around, but the spectacular light show at the end is just gorgeous.
The story definitely keeps you guessing as from the start, you really have no clue what the Neverbeast is and why it’s here. Why is it building these bizarre towers? What is it’s true purpose? What does he have to do with the magical green storm that only appears once every thousand years or so?
The questions are certainly answered by the end of the film and there’s enough mystery to keep you intrigued. Of course there’s loads of typical Pixie Hollow humor as well, especially when it comes to the bunny rabbits.
The only thing to keep in mind is that Gruff (that’s what Fawn names the Neverbeast) could come across as a bit scary. He’s huge, has giant teeth and the music that accompanies him is usually pretty loud and foreboding. If you have real young ones at home, you might want to watch this one by yourself first to make sure they’ll be okay. My boys are 9 and 11, so no worries there.
