First Look: ‘Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue’ Toy Collection from JAKKS Pacific

img_8756 As part of last week’s Disney Consumer Products holiday tour, we also got a first look at several toys from JAKKS Pacific in honor of the upcoming direct-to-video Disney Fairies movie Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue.

Standouts from the collection include a soft-bodied doll version of Lizzie, the human child in the film who encounters Tinker Bell and develops a relationship with her. Lizzie comes complete with a small plastic figure of Tink that fits in Lizzie’s pocket. Additionally, there will be a separate fairy house playset available which pays respects to the fairy house constructed by Lizzie from household products which initially draws Tinker Bell in.

New Stills and Fun Facts from Disney’s ‘Sorcerer’s Apprentice’

Walt Disney Studios recently sent us a couple of new stills from their upcoming release The Sorcerer’s Apprentice starring Nicolas Cage, Jay Baruchel, Alfred Molina, Toby Kebbell and Monica Belluci.

They also asked us to share a few behind-the-scene facts from the movie with you:

In the film, Maxim Horvath (Molina) conjures up a small pack of wolves that chase title character Dave (Baruchel) through a New York City subway station. Although the station is — at times — a rather incredible set, the wolves are very real and are named Bandit, Sierra, Samson and Takoda. They live at Howling Woods Farm, a wolf sanctuary in Jackson Township, NJ. Howling Woods even has a fascinating collection of dozens of behind-the-scene photos from The Sorcerer’s Apprentice as well as the four-legged stars’ appearance in the film’s calendar.
