So Lizzy loves fairies?
Yeah. She even built a fairy house. That's how I met her.
Periwinkle and Tinker Bell


Elizabeth "Lizzy" Griffiths is the deuteragonist of Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue. She is a little girl who has a love of fairies, which leads her to befriend Tinker Bell.

Background[]

Personality[]

Lizzy is a dreamy little girl with a strong belief in fairies. She is aware that is fairies who change the seasons, and make nature possible. Other than fairies, she enjoys spending time with her father, but he is usually too busy to spend quality time with Lizzy, much to her disappointment.

Appearances[]

Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue[]

Lizzy and her father Dr. Griffiths arrive at their summer cottage home. Her father is currently in the middle of constant research, so he may send it to the London scientists. Because of this, Lizzy is rather lonely, but her dreams about fairies keep her happy. One day, she decides to build a fairy house so she may meet an actual fairy. Tinker Bell and Vidia find the house, and Tinker Bell goes inside. Vidia uses her power of wind to lock the door, in an attempt to teach Tinker Bell a lesson on how human things are dangerous. Before Tinker Bell can escape however, Lizzy arrives and takes her to her home. Vidia then alerts Tinker Bell's friends, and a rescue mission is on.

Meanwhile, Lizzy and Tinker Bell have grown a bond. Tinker Bell decided to teach Lizzy everything there is to know about fairies, from how they're born to how they change the seasons. Lizzy takes all the information and inserts it in a research book given to her by her father. When Lizzy feels that it's time to show him however, he openly discards the book calling her notes on fairies pure nonsense. Angered by Dr. Griffith's rants, Tinker Bell reveals herself and tells him off (though he and Lizzy only hears her jingle when she speaks). Fascinated by the sight, Dr. Griffith tries to capture Tinker Bell, but captures Vidia instead, who pushes Tink out the way.

Dr. Griffiths plans on taking Vidia to the scientists of London, but, unbeknown to Dr. Griffiths, this will put the entire fairy species in danger. Tinker Bell and her friends reunite, and sets out to rescue Vidia. Lizzy stops her father before he can show Vidia to his fellow scientists. Dr. Griffiths realizes his mistake and allows Lizzy to set Vidia free. Now that all is well, Tinker Bell and her friends have a tea picnic with the Griffiths family, and Lizzy and her father spend quality time, for the first time in a while.

Pixie Preview[]

Lizzy only appears in the short "Shooting Stars" where she stargazes with her father.

Trivia[]

  • She bares a few similarities to Wendy Darling from Peter Pan.
    • Both Lizzy and Wendy have misunderstanding fathers that mean well, and a strong belief of things said to exist only in the imagination.
    • Both are also kind and dreamy and have also made friends with Tinker Bell.
    • Both are British brunette girls as well.
  • While not appearing in the film, Lizzy is briefly mentioned by Tinker Bell to her sister Periwinkle in Secret of the Wings.
  • Her last name, Griffiths, might be inspired by the Cottingley Fairies photographer Frances Griffiths. They both supposedly have seen fairies, but it is not explained whether or not Frances has seen one.
    • Lizzy is also 9 years old, just like Frances when the first Cottingley Fairy photo was taken.
    • At the tea party, the fairies put a flower wreath on Lizzie's head. On the first Cottingley Fairy photo, Frances also wears one.
  • In the original trailer, Elizabeth was presented in a more antagonistic way, in that she traps Tinker Bell in a jar, as well as being the one who wants to sell her to a museum, a trait that would later be given to her father. This change was probably made because from the beginning there was the concept that Lizzy was a little girl, so it seemed that this dark behavior was too cruel, that's why it was decided that instead of being a villain, Lizzy was more pleasant and that her interactions with Tink were absolutely peaceful.
  • There is no mention of Lizzy's mother throughout the film, but she is most likely deceased.
  • The human-fairy interaction between Tinkerbell and Lizzy was the first seen in the film series, the second being between Zarina and James Hook.
    • Curiously, one is the antithesis of the other, because while the relationship between Elizabeth and Tink is quite peaceful and based on mutual affection, due to the kind but lonely personality of the little girl and the genuine affection that Tinkerbell came to feel for her; On the other hand, Zarina and Hook's relationship, although it initially seemed peaceful, was actually a facade, since Hook was ambitious and required Zarina's knowledge to get Pixie Dust, although this is not revealed until Hook betrays her.
