Tinker Bell will speak for the first time in 2007 courtesy of the voice talents of Brittany Murphy, Hollywood actress.


Greetings,
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.”
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.
Cheers,
Stephanie

  1. Hi there,
    I remember seeing that film – a good cinematic adventure!
    The reference to Brittany Murphy being the first actress to give Tinker Bell a voice was with regard to the animated (cartoon) Tinker Bell who has yet to speak.
    Julia Roberts was a physical representation of Tinker Bell, so I suppose that’s why the honours go to Ms. Murphy!
    Thanks for bringing up Hook. Robin Williams was great in that movie 🙂
    Take care,
    Stephanie

  2. Hi all,
    An update has just come from the Disney people as of June 3, 2008. They have replaced Brittany Murphy with a voice actress named Mae Whitman. Apparently when John Lasseter came on board with the company, the date of the project was changed and they needed to replace Brittany.
