I'm confused about all this as well. I caught the Pixie Hollow Games yesterday, most of it anyway, but weren't they previously advertising this as a feature DVD release (under a different name, maybe). There was a lot of talk about there being 5 movies coming out now instead of 4, plus, that Pixie Hollow Games special seemed very edited to me (I could be wrong). I've been thinking all this time that they must have taken a chunk from the upcoming movie as a sort of preview for everybody yesterday. If not, I'm worried we will never see this one on video, because they never even gave us those "Pixie Previews", did they? Or are they on one of the movie releases and I just haven't seen them. I have but haven't watched all of them yet. Despite being more obsessed with Tink than anyone I've ever known, I just haven't had the chance. Or, I have to be in the right mood, ha. When I was obsessed with Hilary Duff, I bought ANY DVD she was in, but I never watched them. Too depressing to see your crush on TV having romance with OTHER dudes, ha. It's no different with Tink.

Why does Tinkerbell have a twin sister?


She doesn't. They just re-used Tinker Bell's design (with a few changes) for budget reasons. They do that a lot in animation.

Disney Live On wrote:
I have always thought Tink was referring to that fairy possibly being her sister (even though fairies are born with a baby laugh so don't know how relations would work in fairy world).


While I highly doubt she will be her sister, I guess fairy relations could work by corresponding to the real world relations. For example, if one fairy is created from a baby's first laugh and another one is created from another baby's first laugh who is a sibling to the first baby, I guess the two fairies created will also be siblings.

Yes, there was to be another one called Tinker Bell and the Race Through the Seasons but that was turned into a TV special called Pixie Hollow Games. While the setting was the same (Olympic Games-like event), the storyline was completely different:

Quote:
The fifth film in Disney's enormously popular fairy film franchise is Tinker Bell and the Race through the Seasons. Veteran Disney writer/producer/director Bobs Gannaway ("Stitch! The Movie," "House of Mouse") is set to direct. In this latest adventure, all the fairy talents compete in a challenging and traditional leap year race through the four seasons of Pixie Hollow. With Tinker Bell's help, Clank and Bobble enter the race and all the hopes of the Tinkers rest on their shoulders. But the pressures of competition and Bobble's desire to impress a beautiful lightning fairy threaten Clank and Bobble's longtime friendship. In the end, will Bobble place winning a race above losing a best friend?

As for future full-length Tinker Bell movies, there are currently no plans for more installments but everything could change if next year's The Secret of Wings sells really well on home video.

The official webpage for the Fairies 'TV series' has opened:

The Adventures of Disney Fairies


Why Kristen Chenoweth is not voicing Rosetta in Pixie Hollow Games:

Quote:
When Rosetta were first introduced in the Disney Fairies film series -- this character was originally voiced by Tony Award-winner Kristen Chenoweth. But since Kristen has been busy shooting her own project for Disney (i.e. "GCB," which will be bowing on ABC sometime at midseason), Megan stepped in for Kristen and then provided Rosetta's speaking voice for this TV special.

"I've actually done this a number of times over the past few years. Which is understandable, since I'm one of the actresses who joined the Broadway cast of 'Wicked' and then played the role of Glinda after Kristen left that show," Hilty continued. "So whenever Kristen has a scheduling conflict and then can't do something like one of her symphony performances, they typically reach out to me. And I'm always happy to fill in."

So given how much Megan clearly enjoyed working on "Pixie Hollow Games," would she be willing to voice Rosetta a second time if Disney were to call again?

"Well, that kind of depends on Kristen." Hilty concluded. "She's a very busy girl these days. But if Kristen's not available to voice Rosetta, I'd be happy to pull on my Disney Fairy wings again."

Anyone got a review of Pixie Hollow or knows where I can find a copy of it to watch?

Since I'm in Australia I wont see it here for a while I dont think. Need to know what people thought of it? Did it exceed expectation or was it a real let down?

I wonder if it was edited for Disney channel. Whether it was or not it will make its way to DVD. If Disney can make money off a 22 minute feature trust me they will. lol.

I'm in the same boat as you. I live overseas and haven't found yet a copy to watch the special online.

If anyone knows where to find it or has recorded it, please share!

Well, Disney will be releasing Prep & Landing on DVD (on November 22), which was another 22-minute long TV special.

Well, I will never get over that there wasn't a U.S. release of Soccermania. *sigh* And you can't even find it on YouTube (or even on utorrent, ha, except with messed up audio or foreign subtitles).

It's got subtitles, but at least they're not foreign. ;)

Ack, someone finally posted it?! Sweet! But, yeah, subtitles. That still sucks. Why can't someone just post it without those?! *sigh* Why can't people post things right.

I thought Pixie Hollow games was a legit movie not a 22 minute after-school special. This will still be released on DVD though, no? It was still pretty enjoyable

I saw 'Tinker Bell and the Pixie Hollow Games' today... It didn't feel timeless as the others did, but I still enjoyed it!

Me, too. Not that I really care, but I always enjoy the Tinker Bell movies when I see them for some reason. A little disappointing.

It seems she only filled in for Chenoweth for this movie. She probably won't voice Rosetta in the next movie.

However, I also love Megan Hilty, so I don't really mind :)

Bradley Raymond Interview: Director of 'Pixie Hollow Games'
http://jimhillmedia.com/editor_in_chief ... ecial.aspx

Quote:
How do you take something of size - like those feature-length 'Disney Fairies' home premieres that DisneyToon Studios has been producing since 2008 - and then cut it back to just 22 minutes-in-length without sacrificing quality? That was the challenge facing Bradley Raymond, the writer & director of "Pixie Hollow Games." Striking just the right balance with this first-ever 'Disney Fairies' TV special.

"I have to admit that I was kind of concerned about that. I didn't initially know how we were going to cram all of the story beats that we needed to get across in 'Pixie Hollow Games' into such a short running time," Raymond admitted. "But then John Lasseter had this great suggestion. Which was to go watch Dumbo." "Why Dumbo?," you ask. Because - as Bradley points out - that 1941 Walt Disney Animation Studios release is a model of storytelling economy. "Believe it or not, Dumbo is only 64 minutes long. But while you're watching that Disney animated feature, you're not thinking 'Wow, this movie is short.' All you can think about is how entertaining & effecting Dumbo's story is, how great all of these characters are," Raymond explained. "As John likes to say, Dumbo tells its story precisely, efficiently. There's zero flab on that storyline. Every scene moves the story forward. The audience only sees what it needs to see."

So with the Dumbo model in mind, Bradley took the story concept that Bobs Gannaway had cooked up and - working with screenwriter Jeff Howard - set out to create the first sports-based 'Disney Fairies' tale. "There were specific parts of the participating-in-sports experience that I wanted to replicate as part of the 'Pixie Hollow Games,' " Raymond continued. "I wanted viewers to experience what it sounded like to come out of that tunnel, onto that field and then suddenly find yourself in an arena, surrounded by thousands of cheering people. That was a huge technical challenge for our team, especially the audio component. But our producer Helen Kalafatic figured out a way to make that happen."

Helen was also very supportive of Bradley's central idea for "Pixie Hollow Games." Which is that this would be the first 'Disney Fairies' project not to star Tinker Bell. "What I wanted to do was build this TV special around Rosetta, who's the most girly-girl of the Disney Fairies," Raymond stated. "She's obviously the one who's had the least experience when it comes to sports. Which is why I thought that Rosetta would be the perfect character to introduce the Disney Channel audience to the world of athletic competition. That they could then join Rosetta on her journey as she went from being someone who was really outside of her comfort zone to becoming a real competitor."

Of course, one of the other reasons that Bradley zeroed in on Rosetta is that this garden-talent fairy has shown in previous "Disney Fairies" productions that she doesn't like getting her hands (or anything else on her body, for that matter) dirty. "We got a great reaction from 'Disney Fairies' fans to that moment in Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue where Rosetta revealed that she didn't like mud. Which is why I knew that we eventually had to circle back on that character quirk of hers," Raymond said. "So as we were mapping out athletic events for 'Pixie Hollow Games,' I insisted that we include some competitions which involved dirt & slime. So that we could first get some laughs out of Rosetta being upset because she's going to get dirty & sweaty by playing sports. And then - later on in this same story - we could then mine Rosetta's mud phobia for some real drama. Have this character realize that --- in order to become a real competitor - she's finally going to have to face her fears and then find a way to get past them."

The end result is a 22 minute-long TV special which is loaded with action, humor and heart. One that clearly connected with audiences when it debuted on the Disney Channel back on Saturday, November 20th. Given that the premiere of "Pixie Hollow Games" ranked as that week's No. 1 animated cable telecast. More to the point, this DisneyToon Studios production was No. 1 in its time period against all other kid programming with Kids 2-11 (6.57 rtg), Kids 6-11 (6.52 rtg), Tweens 9-14 (4.61 rtg), Women 18-49 (1.31 rtg) with 4.3 million total viewers.

Given all that hard work that went into "Pixie Hollow Games," you just know that Bradley Raymond has to be pleased with the reaction that this first-ever 'Disney Fairies' TV special received last month. But not for the reasons that you might think. "You have to understand that - in a weird sort of way - 'Pixie Hollow Games' is a very personal project for me. You see, it was my Mom who taught me to love sports. She was the one who used to pull me out of Hebrew school so that we could then go to Denver Broncos games," Raymond explained. "So to have a hand in creating a new TV special that will hopefully help get kids excited about the world of sports, of maybe doing something that's outside of their comfort zone like competing in athletics ... Well, I kind of feel like I'm just continuing what my mother did for me."

By the way, if you missed the initial airing of this "Disney Fairies" TV special just before Thanksgiving, "Pixie Hollow Games" will be popping up on the Disney Channel a number of times in the coming weeks. Sunday, December 4th at 3:30 p.m. for starters. With another airing on Wednesday, December 7th at 1 p.m. and an additional repeat that same week on Saturday, December 10th at 6:30 p.m. In fact, between now and New Year's Eve, "Pixie Hollow Games" will air on the Disney Channel a total of 10 times. So if you'd like to spend some time with Tinker Bell & friends over the coming holiday season (which will hopefully tide you over 'til the next feature-length 'Disney Fairies' home premiere, Secret of the Wings, debuts in 2012), be sure and consult your local listings to find out when this new Disney Channel special airs next in your area.
