Based on the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon's [[Disney/PeterPan take on]] ''PeterPan'''s famous fairy/pixie Tinker Bell. This series expands on her and the other fairies she lives with. The franchise was launched in late 2005 and includes two series of chapter books (including three (''Disney Fairies,'' set after the movie, and ''The Never Girls,'' set in the present day), junior novels (three done by [[Literature/EllaEnchanted Gail Carson Levine]]), seven movies released direct to DVD in the USA but in cinemas in other countries (''Tinker Bell'', ''Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure'', ''Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue'', ''Pixie Hollow Games'', ''Secret of the Wings'', ''The Pirate Fairy'', and ''Tinker Bell and the Legend of the [=NeverBeast=]''), a comic published in several countries, dolls, and other merchandise.



Disney wanted to develop this franchise since the early 2000's but it was stalled for other projects, and the first of the movies was already nearly-done. When management changed and John Lasseter became Chief Creative Officer, he screened it, claimed it was "virtually unwatchable", and ordered a complete overhaul. Disney Toon Studios, which made those sequels, ditched their hand-drawn equipment for CG and are now completely focused on this franchise, as well as the newer series called ''WesternAnimation/{{Planes}}'', a spin-off of Pixar's ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'' movies.

At the current, the series is in a bit of a hiatus due to sales figures not matching to Disney's expectations. As such further films have been cancelled for the time being with ''Legend of the Neverbeast'' being the last entry in the franchise.

(Fawn was likely supposed to be Latina, but has been recast twice with white actresses and redesigned, so it's hard to tell now.)

-->"She could have acknowledged then and there how much plucking hurt. She could have admitted she'd been cruel to pluck Mother Dove. She could have recognized that pain is pain, whether it's pain to others or pain to oneself. She could have sworn not to inflict pain on purpose ever again. But instead, she convinced herself that the hawk was the one who'd been cruel. She decided he'd made the pain worse than it really was."
: Vidia [[spoiler:nearly sells out her whole race because she falls in love with a genocidal ''dragon''. He seems to like her back, too!]]

*InferredHolocaust: The fairies being subjected to a hurricane, a flood, and an escaped dragon in the span of what seems to be several months or years could not have been helpful to society as a whole. Also, if you take into account the movies happen before a massive battle that caused the changes from the films to the books, and there are many characters present in the movies before the battle and not in the books afterwards, it's inferred that many of those characters died.

** Zarina, Periwinkle, Lord Milori, and the other Winter fairies also failed to appear or even receive a mention in a follow-up graphic novel that featured everyone else. It looks as if they have become victims of ChuckCunninghamSyndrome but at least they've gotten a lot of attention in FanFiction.

Added DiffLines:

** TheVoiceless trope in Disney Fairies mimicks the pre-adaptation depiction of fairy speak as a MythologyGag: when humans are involved (with Lizzy in ''Great Fair Rescue''), as fairies are consistently heard as jingles.
** Most of the films are heard from the fairy perspective, which abides the TranslationConvention of depicting the primary language of the fairies as dialogue in the viewer's language.

** I feel this is subverted ''at the end'' of the same movie: Tinkerbell and Lizzy make a field notebook about fairies and Lizzy's dad tells her it's good work. Fairies, to all humans in the feature, are accepted as fact. Science, capital S is wrong overall throughout much of the film, but still somewhat subverted by the end.

** Also, in ''Secret of the Wings'' [[spoiler:the Winter/Frost Fairies frost the Pixie Dust Tree just before the frost takes over the other seasons, saving the tree via stasis]].

** It's later established that if a 'warm' fairy's wings get frozen, they are impossible to repair... [[spoiler: except if you have someone with the same exact wings...]]



* CallForward: ''The Pirate Fairy'' has plenty of them including [[spoiler: James being a younger Captain Hook, the birth of the alligator that would later bite off his hand, James having to use a hook to keep himself afloat on his debris while out in the ocean and the ship that picks him up having a younger Smee aboard it, James being able to (somewhat, with some inability at points) understand Fairy.]]

** ''Tinkerbell'' has a cameo by [[PeterPan The Darling House.]]
** ''The Secret Of The Wings'' has a similarly subtle one to Peter Pan, when Tinkerbell and Periwinkle are comparing favourite things, one of them they mention explicitly is ''The second star to the right''.

* ChekhovsGun: In ''Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue'' [[spoiler:early in the movie, Tinker Bell examines the underside of the car belonging to Lizzy's father, and manages to figure out what makes it run. Later in the movie, after Lizzy's father has captured Vidia and intends to take her to the London museum, Tinker Bell uses this knowledge to stop the car, delaying him from reaching the museum long enough for Lizzy to catch up with him (with the help of the other fairies) and convince him to release Vidia.]]

** In ''The Secret Of The Wings'', Tinkerbell is warned about damaging her wings while they are frozen, and later, an odd flash occurs when her wings exactly overlay [[spoiler: Periwinkle's]]. [[spoiler: Later, they end up too brittle to repair damage to them due to the cold, and it's that self-same touching method that completely restores them.

** Tinkerbell's favourite star is ''The second one to the right''.


Added DiffLines:

** This is actually a plot point in ''The Secret Of The Wings'', in that [[spoiler: Periwinkle]] is Tink with wild, white hair and a different dress.
