I have some REALLY exciting news to share 😀
Disney originally announced they would be making a live-action film based on Tinker Bell called Tink back in 2010. Sadly, the project never made it to production, so it was put on hold…until NOW!!! 😀
On May 21, 2015, it was revealed that Academy Award-winning actress Reese Witherspoon has signed on to play Tinker Bell and will co-produce the film with Bruna Papandrea.
Victoria Strouse (the screenwriter of the upcoming Finding Nemo sequel Finding Dory) is already attached to write the script for Tink. A director has not been announced yet as the film is still in very early stages of development.
As far as the plot, nothing official has been released to the public, but online rumors suggest that Tink will play with the idea and the timeline of Disney’s Peter Pan, and will be developed like Maleficent‘s theme of “the story you don’t know” by offering a new perspective of Tinker Bell. I’m hoping this film will FINALLY answer our question about how Tinker Bell met Peter Pan!
This film could be HUGE for us, because if it gets wildly popular, Disney might consider bringing our Pixie Hollow online game back but with some updates that tie in with the new film. I imagine it being like our beloved old game but with more areas of Never Land to explore and quests with Peter Pan. How cool would that be?!?!?!?! 😀
So, how excited are you for this?!? Leave me a comment below 🙂
