The Fairy King of Ar


At their grandmother’s enchanted old property, Kyle and Evie Preston discover that the woods are filled with fairies. Despite their magical qualities, the local townspeople and the grounds’ disgruntled caretaker (Malcolm McDowell) are not fans of the creatures. But when Kyle and Evie’s father, Rob (Corbin Bernsen), falls fatally ill, the family goes to great lengths to save the fairies in a mission that might just heal Rob for good!

Dove Review

This enchanting story is a delight for both kids and adults. It is about a child’s belief in fairies. What appears to be goblins turn into fairies after they do a good deed and heal a man.

The townspeople rescue a young boy after he is trapped in the mine. Everyone pitches in despite the legend of the fairies or, as they called them, “demons”, being trapped in the mine. The themes include lending a helping hand and setting aside differences for a common cause.

There are a few scary images of the goblins and we recommend our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for ages twelve plus due to one strong utterance of language. This isn’t a good one for very young children. Parental discretion is advised and be sure to check our content listing below. This one just might make you believe in fairies!
