Disney is making Tink, a live-action movie focused on the Peter Pan character, Tinker Bell. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Reese Witherspoon is set to star in and produce the movie. She will produce the film alongside her Pacific Standard partner, Bruna Papandrea.
Finding Dory writer, Victoria Strouse, is writing the script for the project. This Tinker Bell tale is being described as similar to Maleficent in the sense that is will be the story you don’t know and offer a new perspective on the character.
Tinker Bell originated in J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan in a minor nonspeaking role. She later appeared in Disney’s 1953 animated classic and has since become a symbol for Disney. Since she first appeared in Barrie’s book, there have been many reincarnations of the character over the years. I’m interested in seeing what Disney has in store for us with this new take on Tinker Bell.
