Update December 1, 2014

Disney announces Mel B voices the character of ‘Fury’, a feisty Scout Fairy in their brand new movie “Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Neverbeast” – released in theaters in the UK on December 12, and on DVD in the US, March 2015.  [Note: in the US version of “Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Neverbeast,” Fury will be voiced by Danai Gurira.]

Update November 25, 2014

Singer/songwriter/musician KT Tunstall heads to Pixie Hollow to help bring animal fairy Fawn’s story to life in “Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast.”  Tunstall performs three new songs in the film, including “Float,” “Strange Sight” and “1000 Years.”

“KT is a celebrated songwriter and musician,” says director Steve Loter.  “She reminds me of Fawn in a way with her big heart and this amazing voice that has a little bit of edge and a tremendous amount of appeal.”

The all-new Tinker Bell film is about the relationship that develops between Fawn, a compassionate animal fairy who thinks with her heart, and Gruff, a massive beast with glowing green eyes who seems to be on a mission.  “It’s a real action-adventure movie,” says Tunstall.  “The characters are so cool.  I was over the moon to take part.  Disney Animation has such an incredible heritage of work, spanning decades, and it’s really special to be part of that.”

Tunstall had fun channeling the film’s heroine. “‘Float’ is Fawn’s opening theme,” she says.  “It’s fantastic how she spends her days looking after all the animals around Pixie Hollow.  The song says, ‘I’ll just float.’  She doesn’t have to have a reason, she just really loves having a pair of wings, so she’s going out for a fly, getting into trouble and mischief.”

The artist also helped introduce the NeverBeast.  “‘Strange Sight’ is heard when Fawn discovers this beast living in the woods near Pixie Hollow,” says Tunstall.  “He’s a huge, scary-looking guy, but she isn’t afraid.  She wants to help him and make friends with him, but can’t work out what he is or what he’s doing with the rocks he’s collecting.”

The third song in Tunstall’s lineup, which she sings with singer/songwriter Bleu, is an emotional song that can be heard during the film’s end credits.

Tunstall has recorded five studio albums and received multiple Brit Award nominations including a win for female solo artist and a 2007 Grammy nomination for the song “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree.”  Her hit “Suddenly I See” was featured in the motion picture “The Devil Wears Prada,” which led her to her interest in composing for film including “The Kid,” “Winter’s Tale” and a collaboration with A.R. Rahman on the song “We Could Be Kings” for Disney’s “Million Dollar Arm.”

TINKER BELL AND THE LEGEND OF THE NEVERBEAST

Nyx is a Scout Fairy charged with protecting the luscious land of Pixie Hollow and all of the fairies who reside there.  A true professional who takes her job very seriously—maybe a little too seriously—allowing facts and logic to guide her every move.  Driven to succeed, Nyx is often willing to let compassion take a back seat.  The Scout Fairies are a group of fearless fairies who protect the residents of Pixie Hollow.  They are agile and athletic with a keen ability to spot trouble before it gets out of control.

This heartwarming story explores the ancient myth of a mysterious creature whose distant roar sparks the curiosity of Tinker Bell’s friend Fawn, an animal fairy who’s not afraid to break the rules to rescue the NeverBeast before time runs out.

From Walt Disney Home Entertainment’s Press Release

Disneytoon Studios returns to Pixie Hollow with the heartwarming adventure TINKER BELL AND THE LEGEND OF THE NEVERBEAST.  The new story explores an ancient myth of a fabled creature whose distant roar sparks the curiosity of Tinker Bell’s good friend Fawn, an animal fairy who’s not afraid to break the rules to help an animal in need.  But this animal—massive and strange with glowing green eyes—is not really welcome in Pixie Hollow, and the scout fairies are determined to capture the mysterious beast before it destroys their home.  Fawn, who sees a tender heart beneath his gruff exterior, must convince Tink and the girls to risk everything to rescue the NeverBeast before time runs out.  Directed by Steve Loter (“Kim Possible”) and produced by Makul Wigert (“Secret of the Wings”), TINKER BELL AND THE LEGEND OF THE NEVERBEAST roars to life in March 3, 2015.

TINKERBELL AND THE LEGEND OF THE NEVERBEAST

Joining the cast of Tinker Bell regulars including: Mae Whitman (Tinker Bell), Megan Hilty (Rosetta), Lucy Liu (Silvermist), Raven Symoné (Iridessa), and Anjelica Huston (Queen Clarion) is Ginnifer Goodwin (“Once Upon a Time”) voicing the character Fawn.

“Fawn is a character who loves all animals unconditionally,” said director Steve Loter.  “She will help any animal that needs her, but sometimes Fawn thinks too impulsively, when she should be thinking with her head, as well as her heart.”

Loter says there’s a lot of Goodwin in the character.  “Fawn was inspired by my daughter and her unconditional love of animals,” he said.  “But Ginnifer had a very strong hand in crafting the character.  Her sense of fun and her wondrous view of the world gave Fawn direction.  You can hear the smile in Ginnifer’s voice—this is a character that loves life and lives it to its fullest.”

Hidden in a dark lair on the fringes of the fairies’ beloved home, Gruff is discovered by curious and empathetic animal fairy Fawn, who sees something special in his glowing green eyes.  His penchant for stacking rocks mystifies Fawn and her friends—but Gruff’s true purpose is the real surprise.
