Tinkerbell will soon be coming back to big screens in two live-action films that have recently been announced. The character, first introduced in J.M. Barrie’s 1904 play, Peter Pan, and the 1911 novelization, Peter and Wendy, has long been associated with Disney. However, they are not the only ones with plans to tackle this character in the coming months and years.
20th Century Fox announced back in November that they had in the works an untitled comedy-adventure with the fairy as the main character. Melissa McCarthy (Spy) was already cast as the titular character and Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum) was set to direct.
Last week, Disney announced they are also developing a live action movie about the iconic fairy. Their movie, titled Tink, will star Reese Witherspoon (Hot Pursuit) in the lead role.
Both women are set to produce their respective films. No word yet on script details or release schedules. We’ll have to wait and see who makes it to theaters first and which movie will come out on top. It’s like that whole Mirror Mirror versus Snow White and the Huntsman situation all over again.
Do you think Tinker Bell deserves even a single live action film, let alone two? Who do you think will make the better Tink? Is there someone you think would be better than both these ladies in these roles? Let us know in the comments below.
