Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue
Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue is an computer animated film based on the Disney Fairies franchise, produced by DisneyToon Studios. It is the sequel to the 2009 film, Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure and revolves around Tinker Bell. The film was produced using Digital 3D modeling. It was released on DVD and Blu-ray by Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment on September 21, 2010.
Years before meeting Wendy and the Lost Boys, Tinker Bell (Mae Whitman) meets nine-year-old Lizzy Griffiths (Lauren Mote), a little girl with a steadfast belief in the power of pixie dust and the magical land of fairies. During the fairies' summer visit to the flowering meadows of England, Tinker Bell ends up getting trapped in a small fairy house Lizzy had built so she could catch a fairy. Tinker Bell is brought to Lizzy's house, where the two form a special bond with each other. However, when Lizzy's scientifically-minded father discovers Tinker Bell's presence in his household, he attempts to deliver her to the museum for study. When Tinker Bell's rival Vidia (Pamela Adlon) is taken in her place, Tinker Bell and her fellow fairies (Raven-Symoné, Lucy Liu, Kristin Chenoweth and Angela Bartys) launch a daring rescue to save her. Tinker Bell takes a huge risk, putting her own safety and the future of all fairykind in jeopardy.

In the United Kingdom and Ireland the film was released in cinemas on August 13, 2010, following a premiere held at the Mayfair Hotel in London on August 8, attended by Lauren Mote."
