Tinker Bell, critique by a literary snob

standard December 8, 2008 5 responses

The Tinker Bell I got to know back in English Lit class was a vindictive little jealous bitch who was always out to get Wendy. Of all the books I studied in all the classes I took for my Masters in Children’s literature, Peter Pan was one of my favorites. I loved the story, but more importantly I loved the characters, including bitchy little Tink.

Disney has a bit of a history of taking great literary works and turning them into simpering cartoons. (The Hunchback of Notre Dame or Beauty and the Beast anyone?) So I will admit that I cringed a bit when I saw that not only were they creating a movie based on Tinker Bell, but that they were essentially creating a whole world around her. I was worried that they would turn my feisty little competitive fairy into a sickly sweet magical sweetheart. I don’t think I would have handled that very well.

Had it just been all about me I would have gladly avoided anything to do with the disneyfied fairy. But it’s no longer just about me. Noooo, now it’s all about my darling children, and the 3-year-old, she loves her some Disney girlie stuff, namely princesses and fairies. So, when I saw that Tinker Bell was on TV the other night, even though I was sure I would hate it, I recorded the movie because I knew C would be thrilled. You know, despite the fact that I was pretty sure that we’d be watching it over and over and over and over again.

I was right about watching it a lot, I was wrong about hating it.

It pains me to say it, but Disney did a great job of building on a great literary work. Despite a cutesie little nod to the original story at the very end, Tinker Bell is actually a good movie. The characters are well developed, the story is good, and the message is one I can endorse and which I’m glad C is drinking in. After all, who can’t use the reminder that we’re all good at some things and we should work hard at perfecting those talents rather than being envious of everyone else’s?

Beyond a good (original) story, a well constructed world, and some interesting characters, the animation is amazing and the music is lovely. C is entranced by the movie and already knows it by heart and yet, I’m still considering putting it on our holiday wishlist. No joke. It’s that good. And that’s high praise coming from this literature snob.

  • I found the movie to be a refreshing departure from the other Disney movies. No dead mom. No rebelling against the father. No male hero to sweep in and save the day. Rather a nice message about accepting oneself and abilities. It was sweet and charming and I don’t mind my 4 year old watching it.

    Does your 3 yo watch any of the Miyazaki movies? I really like Kiki’s Delivery Service and Spirited Away.

  • Yes! I didn’t hate it either, to my surprise! It’s quite charming.

    Know what else I like? The new Peter Pan adventure that’s based on J.M. Barrie’s idea for more!

    BELIEVE!

  • This is my little girl’s favorite movie. It is in our mini-van DVD player so she watches it every day. She was Iridessa for halloween. I agree with Fog and Thistle…thank you Disney for letting everyone in this movie live for once!

  • I was actually pretty happy with the movie too. I bought the dvd about a week before it was suddenly on TV though. What was that about?

    I’m interested to see how the next one is.
