Disney does fairy tales right, y'all!
According to reports, Reese Witherspoon will play Tinker Bell in a new live action film called Tink!
How cute is that?! The film is currently in development, and Tink is still a little ways from seeing the light of day. It doesn't have a director attached to it yet, and writer Victoria Strouse (who also wrote the script for the Finding Nemo sequel that we all can't wait to see!) is currently finishing up the screenplay.

But the really cool news is that Tink will reportedly be produced in the same vein as Disney's 2014 smash Maleficent with Angelina Jolie - a new perspective on the story and a twist on the characters of the classic Peter Pan franchise.
We'll keep you updated as development and then production move along, but Witherspoon getting attached to the project is a big deal and a great get for Disney!
What do you guys think? Was Witherspoon born to play Tinker Bell or what?!

We are so excited about a live action Tinker Bell movie! But this is some casting we didn't see coming!
Comedy genius Melissa McCarthy will be putting on the wings as the famous fairy!

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!

Such a beaut!
Rose McIver was seriously such an excellent casting choice for Once Upon a Time's Tink. She's got that cute sexy thing going on, which we all know means SASS-A-FRASS!
And we might be totally wrong with this, but we smell an old friends-with-benefits relationship with her and Hook! And then Pan's gonna find out, and it's gonna be some jhaaa-rammaaah up in here!
Ooo we're excited!!
Now if only they'd tell us who Ariel's gonna be! But Adam and Ed (the show heads) know the longer we wait, the more our excitement potion brews. They're totally Rumpin' us, LOLz!
Ah well! We're mighty satisfied with the Tink news. Clap, clap!
P.S. CLICK HERE and HERE to see our Comic-Con interviews with the cast! Season 3 premieres Sunday, September 29 at 8/7c on ABC!!!

Your claps have been heard loud and clear!!
Now that Once Upon A Time is following that second star to the right to Neverland, lucky OUAT fans are finally getting some details!
While we reported that the ABC show would be bringing in their very own Rufio to join the Lost Boys, it seems it's also adding the absolutely-necessary Tinker Bell! After all, where would Peter be if not for his little fairy?!
Fan favorite Tink will reportedly have a “significant role” in the upcoming season and is apparently even related to one of the show’s series regulars.
Hmmm, how far does the fairy line extend, we wonder?
Stay tuned for more details!

OH. EM. GEE.
Sooo unbelievably cuuute!!
Neil Patrick Harris tweeted this photo of him and his hubby David Burtka and their two children Gideon and Harper dressed up in their glorious Halloween costumes.
Nei dressed as Captain Hook, while David was Peter Pan, Harper as Tinker Bell, and Gideon as Smee!!!
Best family costume idea ever!!! It looks like everyone is having so much fun! Especially David and Harper. They have the same facial expression! Ha!
Too cute for words.

Paris has REALLY been getting into the Halloween spirit this year!
Yesterday, we caught a glimpse of Paris Hilton dressed as She-Ra, Princess of Power, and she was definitely looking the part!
Now, we're getting a look at Paris' second costume: Tinker Bell!
Very cute outfit, but she REALLY should have gotten someone to accompany her as Peter Pan! That would have been fantastic!
Hey, maybe Robin Williams is available for the gig! Wonder if those Hook tights still fit….

Wow! She usually sticks exclusively to film and the stage!
Keira Knightley has reportedly signed on to join the cast of the two-part TV movie Neverland, set to premiere on the SyFy channel!
The drama is reportedly a prequel to Peter Pan, and focuses how the iconic character and his friends traveled to the fantasy world with mentor Jimmy Hook. Knightley will be lending her vocal talents to the voice of Tinker Bell!
Inneresting! If she won't be physically playing the part, then we're curious to see how the character is interpreted in this version!
Sounds as though it might be worth a watch!
