The newest character in the world of Disney Fairies and Pirates is Bonito, the sensitive pirate, voiced by actor/singer/composer Carlos Ponce.
Serving as rigger alongside James and Zarina in the film, the huge Spaniard can throw a harpoon a hundred yards. But Bonito is quite passionate about sewing, not only the ship’s sails, but also applying dainty double-stitched seams to his fairy captain’s tiny outfits.

Singer/Songwriter Natasha Bedingfield provides the singing voice for the newest Disney Fairy – Zarina, “The Pirate Fairy.”
Disneytoon Studios’ new adventure “The Pirate Fairy” features Zarina, a smart and ambitious dust-keeper fairy whose wild ideas get her into trouble. And according to filmmakers, a fairy with such an outgoing personality called for a very special musical accompaniment. “We are lucky enough to have award-winning Natasha Bedingfield serve as the inner voice of Zarina through her songs,” says Peggy Holmes, director of “The Pirate Fairy.”
“Zarina is a little offbeat and contemporary and these songs showcase her personality so well. We used one of Natasha’s songs, ‘Weightless,’ as a temp track and fell in love with it—so much so, we decided to use it in the final film. We felt Natasha’s voice so perfectly spoke to Zarina’s character, we asked her to also perform our original song ‘Who I Am,’ which was written for ‘The Pirate Fairy.’”
Says Bedingfield, “Being part of ‘The Pirate Fairy’ was fantastic, I like pirates and I really love fairies, so I could think of nothing better than working on a song for the movie that brings these things together. It really has everything I love in it.”
