Elizabeth Banks to star as Tinker Bell in Tink
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I guess it was only a matter of time that Disney would make a live-action Tinker Bell movie. Over the past several years, they’ve turned the bit character from PETER PAN into an iconic figure. Elizabeth Banks will be playing the mischievous fairy in the adaptation, which is being produced by Adam Shankman and McG. No word of exactly what they’re going to do with her or whether or not Peter Pan will play a part.
I really don’t understand the fascination with Tinker Bell. But every time I’m at the Disney Marketplace in Orlando, I see dozens of girls wearing Tinker Bell shirts and the place is covered in Tinker Bell memorabilia. What bugs me about it is that Tinker Bell was not a good or nice character in the film. She was spoiled, manipulative, pouty and obnoxious. I’m just don’t understand why people like her so much.
