Melissa and director Shawn Levy developed a brand new take on the classic children's lit character, said to be a comedic adventure.
We're not sure exactly what that means, but we're guessing this falls more into the spoof category than Disney canon. We're guessing some purists won't like that — but we'd say to them not to knock it before they try it.
Still, Melissa as Tinker Bell? Could be some strong chances of hilarity ensuing!
No wonder she's lost so much weight! Now the question is, how is she going to shed all that height? LOLz!

Melissa McCarthy, you are looking fabulous — and we don't just mean fashionably!
According to an insider close to the star, the Identity Thief actress has reportedly shed 45 pounds!
That's pretty AH-Mazing progress and a hefty amount of weight loss for someone who's said before they weren't looking to lose any lbs at all!

An insider revealed to Star magazine that Melissa has been working on a healthier diet. They said:
Pretty cool to be invited to Adam Levine's Halloween party, no?!
Melissa McCarthy recalled the day she got (pity) invited to her old Maroon 5 neighbor's epic costume bash on Jimmy Kimmel last night — and the story was pure brazilliance!

Not only was the Tammy star delighted to attend, but she donned a pretty hysterical getup in hopes that it'd be a hit…
Little did Melissa know, most ladies would show up almost naked and leave her "Aunt Bernice" costume in the dust!
Ch-ch-check out the HIGHlarious storytelling in the clip (below)!
Strangely, there have been some mixed responses to the idea of an all-new Ghostbusters team made up completely of women.
We don't think there's any point in just remaking the perfect original movie, but a new take with a new group of gals busting heads in a spiritual sense? Genius!
And we're not the only ones who think so! O.G. G.B. Bill Murray may be hesitant to return to the franchise himself, but he's totally down with the lady Ghostbusters! He said:
"I'm fine with it. I would go to that movie, and they'd probably have better outfits, too."
But Bill isn't going to pass the protoplasmic torch to just anyone! He has some FANTASTIC choices to succeed the classics! His first pick? Same as ours! Melissa McCarthy! Bill says:
Wow, we're so happy to see Melissa McCarthy and Steve Carell lending their comedic talents to such a great cause!
On Wednesday, Melissa and Steve were spotted filming a commercial for the amazing charity, Stand Up To Cancer.

If time truly is a flat circle, then we won't mind reliving this night over and over again!!
Tonight's Emmys were SOOOOO stacked that we didn't really know what to expect — except maybe Jim Parsons winnning.
The guy has more Emmys than the man who makes them and keeps the "rejects" as he's making them, like someone who works at Dairy Queen and loves free ice cream.
We mean, can you believe that Gwen Stefani didn't spend hours practicing how to say Colbert Report??
Even if you saw it once, you gotta see the whole emotionally draining (in the good way!) night IN GIFs (below)!
Seth Meyers is doing a fine job hosting the 2014 Emmys.
He isn't just telling jokes, he's answering questions from the crowd. And not softballs either!
Jon Hamm, Melissa McCarthy, Andre Braugher, and more have some super serious and not at all ridiculous inquiries for their host.
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see all the HIGHlarious gotcha questions!
