[edit] Setting

In Barrie's 1902 novel The Little White Bird, in which he introduced the mythos of Peter Pan and the fairies, he wrote, "When the first baby laughed for the first time, his laugh broke into a million pieces, and they all went skipping about. That was the beginning of fairies."[1] The Disney Fairies are based on a similar idea: every time a newborn baby laughs for the first time, that laugh travels out into the world, and those that make their way to Never Land turn into a Never fairy.

The Home Tree in Pixie Hollow.

The fairies generally reside in the Home Tree, a towering tree located in the heart of Pixie Hollow in Never Land. Various groups of fairies work and live nearby as well. Most of the fairy characters are young and female, but older and male characters are also included. The males are sometimes referred to as "sparrow men", though the term "fairies" is used to refer to both female and male characters.

[edit] Characters

Each fairy has a specific talent that they perform and a distinct personality, intended for young girls to each relate to a fairy with a similar persona.[2]

  • Tinker Bell: (voiced by Mae Whitman in the films) Tinker Bell, also known as "Tink", is sassy, brave, and beautiful. Although she is initially resistant to becoming a "tinker" (the fairies who create and fix things, also in the books known as a "pots-and-pans" talent fairy), she embraces the identity when she comes to recognize the value of her talent. She is inexperienced, but a good problem solver. She can be easily impatient and annoyed, yet she is extremely loyal. According to her starring film, she has invented two things; the acorn crusher and the flower sprayer.
  • Silvermist: (voiced by Lucy Liu in the films) Silvermist is a water-talent fairy of East Asian appearance. She looks on the positive side of life and acts as an influence between Tinker Bell and Iridessa.
Disney Fairies from the novels.
  • Rosetta: (voiced by Kristin Chenoweth in the films) Rosetta is a garden-talent fairy who is red-haired and speaks with a southern accent. She loves beauty and good manners and is always giving good beauty tips to her friends and plants.
  • Fawn: (voiced by America Ferrera in the first film and Angela Bartys in the second[3] and third films) Fawn is a Latino animal-talent fairy and can therefore speak the languages of all creatures except butterflies, but in a clip she was seen helping a butterfly out of its cocoon, meaning that her inability to communicate with butterflies might be a mistake.
  • Iridessa: (voiced by Raven-Symone in the films) Iridessa is a light-talent fairy of African appearance. She could be described as a perfectionist. She is good friends with Tinker Bell but sometimes gets angry at her because she plays around. However, if Tinker Bell needs help, Iridessa will always come to her aid. She is usually very cheerful and practical.
  • Queen Clarion: (voiced by Anjelica Huston in the films) Queen Clarion is the Never Fairies' leader, wise and dignified. Her ultimate concern is the health and well-being of her subjects. Sometimes, she is called Queen Ree or just Ree. She might possess every fairy talent.
  • Minister of Spring: (voiced by Steve Valentine in the films) A fairy who is of high rank (equal to all the other Ministers and higher than everyone, except Mother Dove and Queen Clarion) who is the Minister of Spring. He is a perfectionist and worries a lot. He and the other Ministers report to and work with Queen Clarion.
  • Minister of Summer: (voiced by Kathy Najimy in the films) A fairy of high rank who is the Minister of Summer. She is very cheerful and jolly.
  • Minister of Autumn: (voiced by Richard Portnow in the first film and John DiMaggio in the second film) A fairy of high rank who is the Minister of Autumn. Unlike the Minister of Spring, he is quite patient, calm, and is very kind. For the Autumn Revelry, he selects Tinker Bell, representing the Tinker talents, to make the Autumn Scepter.
  • Minister of Winter: (voiced by Gail Borges in the films) A fairy of high rank who is the Minister of Winter. She's very practical and detail-oriented.
  • Fairy Mary: (voiced by Jane Horrocks in the films) Fairy Mary is a tinker-talent fairy and is pictured as a tiny winged, plump fairy with chestnut curls. She is in charge of all fairy activities (essentially serving as Queen Clarion's Chief Operations Officer). She is also the head Tinker-talent.
  • Bobble: (voiced by Rob Paulsen in the films) He likes for other fairies to call him Phineas T. Kettletree, Esquire, and he is a tinker-talent sparrow man. He wears large goggles with water droplets for lenses, making his eyes look large.
  • Clank: (voiced by Jeff Bennett in the films) Another tinker-talent sparrow man, and Bobble's best friend. He is large and not very bright, which is depicted frequently in the movie.
  • Terence: (voiced by Jesse McCartney in the films) Terence is a dust-talent sparrow man, who hands out pixie dust to other fairies each day so they may do their magic, and is calm and kind. He has a strong crush on Tinker Bell, which she is unaware of.
  • Fairy Gary: (voiced by Jeff Bennett in the films) The boss of all Dust-talent fairies, who, is although very serious when it comes to fairy dust, loves to joke around. He always reminds everyone that they are allowed exactly one cup of fairy dust per day, no more, and no less. He is sort of husky, and talks that way, too.
  • Bolt: (voiced by Roger Craig Smith in the films) A dust-talent sparrow man, who, along with Stone, likes to tease Terence about how much he helps Tinker Bell with her inventions.
  • Stone: (voiced by Roger Craig Smith in the films) A dust-talent sparrow man, who, along with Bolt, likes to tease Terence about how much he helps Tinker Bell with her inventions.

Like all water talents, she is very emotional. She is a passionate dreamer who is enthusiastic and impulsive. She is the most ardent of the water fairies.

  • Lyria: (Voiced by Grey DeLisle in the first film) A beautiful Greek story-teller fairy, Lyria is Pixie Hollow's equivalent of a troubadour.

At the opening of the 2005 Bologna International Children's Book Fair, the Walt Disney Company revealed its plan to introduce a children’s illustrated novel for girls 6–10 years of age.[1] Disney Fairies debuted September 2005, when Disney Publishing Worldwide unveiled the novel Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg, written by Newbery Honor-winning author Gail Carson Levine. The book's illustrations were inspired by the tradition and craft of early twentieth century European children's book illustration [2]. It was released in 45 countries and 32 languages with a US$1 million marketing and publicity campaign. It became a New York Times bestseller and has already sold over 1 million copies worldwide [3]

The story begins in Fairy Haven/Pixie Hollow, located in the heart of Never Land. Prilla, who is a brand-new fairy, born of a baby's laugh, arrives in Never Land and discovers that she has no talent for any of the fairy avocations. Tinker Bell takes Prilla to see Mother Dove, but before the wise bird can advise Prilla, Never Land is shaken by a terrible hurricane. Mother Dove is thrown off her nest, and her precious egg, which holds all the secrets of Neverland, is shattered. Immediately, all those who live in Never Land begin to age. The island's only hope is for some brave fairies to take the egg pieces to Kyto the dragon and ask him to restore it with his fiery breath.

The book was followed in 2007 by a sequel, entitled Fairy Haven and the Quest for the Wand. Another sequel, "Fairies and the Quest for Never Land", was released in 2010.

In the Year of a Million Dreams celebration, book stores released a form submitting a fairy character. The winner is said to be put in his/her own fairy's book.

In June 2006, Egmont Magazines launched a new monthly magazine for girls for 5–9 years old, produced by The Walt Disney Company Italia, S.p.A. and published in Italy a couple of months prior to the Egmont translations. The magazine, entitled Fairies, began with an initial print of 110,000 copies and a cover price of £1.99. The magazine's content is centered around Tinker Bell, and her fairy friends from the Pixie Hollow. Each issue features a collectable pull-out story, games, puzzles, posters and colouring pages. [4]. Fairies Magazine has been launched in Italy, Malaysia, Singapore, Poland, Russia, Spain, the Nordic countries, Portugal, Germany, and Benelux[5].

[edit] Merchandising

In addition to the Published work, The Walt Disney Company provides support for the Disney Fairies across all business units. The campaign includes The Disney Fairies Website, where visitors can explore and discover information about the Disney Fairies. The website allows users to learn about the fairies, create a fairy, visit the Pixie Hollow, and explore related merchandise.

Disney Consumer Products have also produced a line of dolls and role play assortments. The first Disney Fairies Products were a series of 10-inch dolls, which were a Disney store exclusive in January 2006 [6]. Since then, Playmates Toys Inc teamed up with Disney in October 2005 to design and produce a line of toys for the Disney Fairies, which will include 3.5" small dolls, 8" fashion dolls, playsets & activity sets with DVDs and collectible story cards. Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg was the inspiration for the line of toys. [7]. Disney Consumer Products launched a wide variety of Disney Fairies branded items, consisting of everything from apparel to stationery.[8]

[edit] Film series

A computer-animated feature film, Tinker Bell was developed by DisneyToon Studios, and released on DVD and Blu-ray by Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment on October 28, 2008.[5] They also announced four other direct-to-DVD sequels to follow this film, also digitally animated:

Each of the first four films is set around one of the four seasons (Tinker Bell around Spring, Lost Treasure around Autumn, Great Fairy Rescue around Summer, and Winter Story around Winter), with the fifth film (Race Through the Seasons) set around all four seasons.[5][7]

[edit] Theme park attractions

In October 2008, Disney Parks opened two "Pixie Hollow" locations, one at Disneyland near the Matterhorn in the area that held "Ariel's Grotto", and the other at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom in Mickey's Toontown Fair.[8] These attractions gives guests the opportunity to meet Tinker Bell and the other fairies from the film.
