The latest in Disney’s Tinker Bell computer-animated movies is a sprightly affair, made in eye-popping iridescent colours, full of stardust and with enough narrative verve to keep the mawkishness at bay.

Tinker Bell herself plays second fiddle here to her animal-loving friend Fawn (Ginnifer Goodwin), who befriends ancient monster the NeverBeast after removing a pin from his paw.

Back in Pixie Hollow, the rest of the fairies are convinced that the beast threatens them with death and destruction, but Fawn knows better. Pixar eminence John Lasseter was the executive producer on a film lively enough to hold the attention of even the most easily distracted kids.
