Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast is a more adventure-focused installment in the Tink series. It focuses mainly on animal fairy Fawn and features Gruff, a big furry monster who's lovable but also can be quite scary. There are some intense chase scenes, a band of Scout Fairies who use high-action warfare to tame and repel predators, some fierce storms and lightning, and trippy graphics when Gruff transforms into a monster. Plus, Tink and Fawn are injured and appear unconscious and hurt. There's also a fair bit of emotional intensity in this film, particularly when friends must separate. Overall it's a testament to curiosity, heart, independence, the power of teamwork, and unlikely friendships, but very young kids may be frightened in a few instances or have questions about loss.
