Tinker Bell will speak for the first time in 2007 courtesy of the voice talents of Brittany Murphy, Hollywood actress.
Most of us know Tinker Bell as Peter Pan's fairy friend, jealous to a fault of Wendy in Disney's animated feature film, Peter Pan (1951). Even without a voice, she could sure get her point across!
Modern day audiences will soon know a new dimension of Tinker Bell in Disney's forthcoming computer generated animation in the fall of 2007.
When asked about landing the role, Brittany Murphy shared the following "I've had the good fortune of playing many interesting characters, but none as magical as Tinker Bell, To give Tinker Bell a voice for the first time in history is such an honor."
In related news, the original live-action reference model for Tinker Bell, Margaret Kerry, now aged 77, will be at the Oakland Museum of California on July 9th from 1-4 p.m. as a part of its BEHIND THE MAGIC - 50 YEARS OF DISNEYLAND exhibition.
