On April 1, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment will release THE PIRATE FAIRY, a film that is not only a sequel to recent films in the Disney Fairies series – but also a prequel to a true Disney classic, 1953’s PETER PAN. I recently paid a visit to DisneyToon Studios (I was there as a guest, and yes, it was on Mickey’s dime) in Glendale, California to get an early look at the film (review forthcoming) and a look at all the tie-in products that are being released this year to further entertain kids and grownups alike that find themselves enthralled in the world of Disney Fairies. Me? I’m sort of like “the boy who wouldn’t grow up,” and I got to hang out in the “zen garden” of the same facility where cool stuff like PLANES was made, while eating lunch with some fellow bloggers and wearing a Tinker Bell watch.
There’s a wide array of items either in-stores now or on the way soon, with Disney Consumer Products working with various licensees to bring some of that magic to your favorite “mass retailers,” and the folks at Disney Store developing their own, exclusive line of merchandise straight from the world of THE PIRATE FAIRY. I came home from Disney with an assortment for my girls, so we’ll start with a hands-on look at those first, and then take a peek at some of the others. Since my oldest daughter has Disney Fairies Fathead wall graphics taking up one wall of her bedroom, it’s safe to say she’s a little excited…
THE PIRATE FAIRY – Disney Consumer Products Collection
From Amazon and Walmart, to Target and J.C. Penny’s, these are the items that you should be able to track down just about anywhere.
THE PIRATE FAIRY Deluxe Dolls (JAKKS Pacific) | Order from Target
The Pirate Fairy 9” Deluxe Fashion Dolls feature your favorite fairies dressed in dazzling pirate fashions. The collection includes Tink, Periwinkle, Rosetta and Zarina, a pixie dust fairy from The Pirate Fairy.
ROCK FATHER Notes: Now, I should probably point out that my daughter (pictured right with Zarina from this collection) is not wearing a Disney Fairy costume. No, but dressing like a Fairy – specifically a Fall Fairy – is commonplace here at Rock Father HQ. Doesn’t have to be a holiday or special occasion, just being Friday will suffice.
Our 9″ Zarina doll is beautiful, and was an immediate hit when I brought her home. She made fast-friends with many of the other dolls that live with us here in our semi-secret home base.
THE PIRATE FAIRY 4.5″ Dolls (JAKKS Pacific) Coming Soon
Tink and her friends are now more dazzling than ever! Each fairy is dressed in an outfit made from jewels from the treasure chest and features a signature, sparkling gem! The collection includes Tink, Periwinkle, Rosetta and Zarina.
ROCK FATHER Notes: Similar to some smaller dolls from the Disney Princess line that we already had, we now have the 4.5″ Zarina doll, and those rubbery outfits kinda weird me out – but the kids love ’em, so it’s cool. It’s sort of a SPOILER, but these dolls are in almost perfect scale to the Baby Crocky plush I’m going to cover further down the page. Look for a picture, and it will all make sense.
Tinker Bell and THE PIRATE FAIRY Read-Along Storybook and CD (Disney Press) | Order from Amazon
Pirates have been spotted off the shores of Neverland, and the powerful Blue Pixie Dust has gone missing! Tinker Bell and her fairy friends team up to bring the Blue Pixie Dust, and a spunky dust-keeper fairy named Zarina, home again. Follow along with this book and CD set, featuring thrilling sound effects, word-for-word narration, and original movie voices!
ROCK FATHER Notes: It’s the story of the movie – in a 15-minute, abridged version… and if your little ones are like mine, they’ll want to read it all over again by the time the final page arrives.
THE PIRATE FAIRY: WAKE UP, CROC! (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers) | Order from Amazon
Tinker Bell, Rosetta, Fawn and the other fairies make a new friend–a baby crocodile! Count to five as the baby croc meets the fairies in this adorable board book.
ROCK FATHER Notes: PERFECT for toddlers, this book is a big hit for Little Finley (20 months old as of this writing). This very short tale is taken from a key scene in THE PIRATE FAIRY movie, and kids will love it.

Available exclusively at Disney Store retail locations, and online at DisneyStore.com, these are the items you won’t find anywhere else!
THE PIRATE FAIRY Plush Collection | Order: Crocky (Zarina, Periwinkle, Tinker Bell in-stores now)
You’ll forever smile at this crocodile! Careful – our soft and silly Baby Croc plush, from The Pirate Fairy, is sure to lure you in with his big bright eyes and crooked grin!
ROCK FATHER Notes: Now, as I mentioned before, Crocky has a small, but key role in THE PIRATE FAIRY. His adorable stature brings to mind the baby dinosaur from the old Jim Henson series DINOSAURS (if you remember that one), and his big eyes are quick to warm the hearts of kids and grownups alike (believe me, I’ve seen both).
Zarina THE PIRATE FAIRY Costume and Accessories Collection | Order Dress | Order Accessories
She can imagine herself on swashbuckling high sea adventures as the star of Disney’s The Pirate Fairy in this Zarina Costume Collection for Girls. With the buccaneering costume and accessories, including wings, she’ll become the dust-keeper fairy.
ROCK FATHER Notes: I have a very strange feeling that I’m going to end up buying these.
THE PIRATE FAIRY Tee for Girls | Order now
She’ll set sail to tropical adventures wearing this sparkling Disney Fairies Tee featuring Tinker Bell’s newest friend and foil, Zarina, the Pirate Fairy.
Zarina Disney Fairies 10″ Doll | Order now
Avast there me hearties, it be the dust-keeper fairy Zarina in her swashbuckling outfit. The winged buccaneer stars in the Disney Fairies adventure The Pirate Fairy in which she steals Pixie Hollow’s all-important Blue Pixie Dust.
ROCK FATHER Notes: The Disney Store always has their own doll lines, which often compete with whoever has the mass retail line (usually JAKKS Pacific, Mattel, etc.). These are no exception, and the color scheme of this one (an inch taller than the version we have) seems truer to the movie. We don’t have this doll, but I’ve seen it in-person.

From the world of Peter Pan comes The Pirate Fairy, a swashbuckling new adventure about Zarina (voice of Christina Hendricks), a smart and ambitious dust-keeper fairy who’s captivated by Blue Pixie Dust and its endless possibilities. When Zarina’s wild ideas get her into trouble, she flees Pixie Hollow and joins forces with the scheming pirates of Skull Rock, who make her captain of their ship. Tinker Bell (voice of Mae Whitman) and her friends must embark on an epic adventure to find Zarina, and together they go sword-to-sword with the band of pirates led by a cabin boy named James (voice of Tom Hiddleston), who’ll soon be known as Captain Hook, himself. Enjoy the laughter, heart, magic and thrills of The Pirate Fairy.
Available for Pre-order now via Amazon (Blu-ray | DVD) or from DisneyStore.com, with a FREE set of four 10×14″ lithographs stamped with a gold foil seal.
