Elizabeth Banks: Tinker Bell Role

July 16, 2010

In a new movie by Disney, we may get to see a perfect fit for Elizabeth Banks. Tinker Bell is the sweet fairy from Peter Pan, and in “Tink” it will be all about her sweet and playful sides! Read more below, including great photos and a video.

The romantic comedy will have the actress as a real life fairy, complete with dust and wings! Liz has been in a myriad of different roles from innocent to sultry, but I feel like if anyone has the pixie style, it is her! The premise behind this movie will be to “play with the mischievous nature of the Tinkerbell character.” Intriguing!

Elizabeth Banks’ Tinker Bell portrayal should be spot on, in my opinion. She has the cute fairy look, but also has her “edgier” side to play the playful side the producers are trying to play up. After all she was in ‘The 40 Year Old Virgin’ and ‘Zack and Miri Make a Porno.’ And she’s proven to be funny and entertaining, and I really enjoyed her recent 30 Rock appearance.

The producers seem to be a great group which includes Adam Shankman, McG and Jennifer Gibgot. Adam and Jennifer have a great history in film working on both ‘Hairspray’ and ‘17 Again.’ And good ole’ McG was the producer of ‘Supernatural.’

Though I am always wary of classic Disney remakes, I have to say with this leading lady and the intriguing aspect, I may have to check this one out. We still don’t know when production will begin or when the public will finally be able to view it.

What do you think about the production’s choice to star Elizabeth Banks as Tinker Bell? And what do you think of the spin this movie will take? Let me know your thoughts, after you check out these pictures and this video about her real life.

    Tinker Bell is hardly sweet. She’s quite mean-spirited often… and jealous. She tries to kill Wendy at least twice in the novel.

    Amongst all these shenanigans with Peter Pan lately, there are two books that are worth their salt…

    First, a FAITHFUL novel based on Barrie’s own idea for more: Click!

    Second, a GREAT “What If?” adventure for Wendy (but this one is not for kids!!): Click!
