I didn’t see the first direct-to-video entry in the digital animated series, Tinker Bell (2008), but I did give Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure a spin on Blu-ray. It’s well-produced but ultimately very light kidvid fluff.

Luckily for any parent who gets stuck watching this with the young ones, the story is actually well told and the voice cast is strong. It’s blue harvest moon time in Pixie Hollow, home of Tinker Bell and friends. Only light captured from the blue moon can restore the Pixie Dust tree (the source of the pixies’ magic). Tink manages to foul up the proceedings, so she and her male pixie friend Terrence are on a mission to right the wrong.
The voice cast includes Mae Whitman, Jesse McCartney, Lucy Liu, Raven-Symoné, and Anjelica Huston provide voices. The digital animation looks spectacular on Blu-ray. The DTS-HD MA 5.1 mix is less notable but features well-balanced audio. There’s even a few worthwhile featurettes included as extra features, including “outtakes” and a Demi Lovato music video.
