Tinker Bell

I have a very special little treat for all of our readers who are big Disney fans. For the first time in history, one of Disney’s most beloved characters will find her voice. Tinker Bell, long known as Peter Pan’s helpful, yet silent partner, will be seen for the first time in her own film, this time with a speaking part. Walt Disney has hooked us up with a first look at the film, which includes two video clips. First up is the film’s official trailer, which can be seen below:

Next up is a special clip that includes an introduction by John Lasseter, Chief Creative Officer of Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios:

The voice of Tinker Bell is played by Mae Whitman (Independence Day, One Fine Day) with a supporting cast that includes America Ferrera (Ugly Betty), Raven-Symone (College Road Trip), Lucy Liu, Jesse McCartney and Anjelica Huston.

As a fan of Disney movies, I will admit that this new Tinker Bell film is intriguing, but it is interesting to note the differences that can be seen between how Tinker Bell was animated back in the day with this new CG animated version. Sure, it looks clean, but it is quite a bit different in my mind. I’m not sure if it will have the same effect for other fans but for me, the film loses something in the transition to CG.

Despite what I think, Tinker Bell will still hit shelves on DVD and Blu-ray October 28, 2008. For more, check out Kevin Carr’s report from the Disney Animation Studios, where he talked to John Lasseter and got an exclusive preview of the film.

And yes, I did just say that I was sort of excited about the Tinker Bell movie. Any other hetero-dudes ready to join me in that sentiment, or are you all too chicken to admit that you dig fairies?
