Magic and mayhem ensue in this vibrant, engaging special that features the return of all of fans' Pixie Hollow favorites. Tinker Bell (Mae Whitman), Fairy Mary (Jane Horrocks), and Queen Clarion (Anjelica Huston) are here, and a few new faces are in the mix as well. Kids will be swept away by Pixie Hollow Games' beautiful and imaginative presentation of this magical world, complete with tag-team leapfrog races (on real frogs, that is) and a team of butterflies who populate the scoreboard for the games.

This expertly crafted story is rich in positive themes like being a good sport, working as a team, persevering, and embracing change. Rosetta learns to see past the limits she put on herself and tap into an inner strength she didn't know she had, which might inspire kids (with a little help from their parents) to challenge themselves to something new. The Disney Fairies are a hugely successful franchise that markets everything from video games to kids' clothing, so there is a commercial tie-in to be considered here, but aside from that, there's a lot of merit to this sweet tale.
