Full disclosure here: I’ve never seen a Pixie Hollow movie before.
I think I vaguely remember seeing part of one at some point when I was visiting my much younger cousin but all I remember was that there were fairies and I thought it was dumb. Oh, but readers, I clearly did not give those movies enough of a chance because if they are anything likeThe Pirate Fairythey are probably all kinds of adorable and amazing.
I knew I wanted to see The Pirate Fairyever since they announced that Tom Hiddleston was going to be playing a young Captain Hook at D23 last year. I just wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about it. I think I expected to be rolling my eyes the entire time but nothing could be further from the truth. Once I started getting into it I worried that maybe I wouldn’t quite understand everything that was going on because it seems like the Pixie Hollow movies are pretty well connected to one another. But even though I had no idea that Tinker Bell has a sister (or why her wings flared up when she was near) and I don’t have any basis for know who any of these other obviously reoccurring characters were that didn’t distract from the movie very much.
