After more than 50 years of silence, Disney's Tinker Bell is getting a voice.
Disney Consumer Products announced that it will reveal the new voice of Tinker Bell, provided by "one of Hollywood's hottest young talents," at the Licensing International 2006 show in New York City on June 20th. This announcement will coincide with the introduction of Tinker Bell, a direct-to-video release scheduled to debut in Spring 2007. The video promises to introduce young viewers to Tinker Bell's "secret, magical world" where they will hear her speak for the very first time. The CG-animated feature will be part of the Disney Fairies product line that will include dolls, play-sets and role-play items, many of which will be available for purchase this Fall. The first Disney Fairies book, Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg, was released last September and spent over 20 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.
