Disney changes the Tinkerbell movie for a series after 10 years of development, end of the curse?

The company continues with its ‘spin-off’ about the boy’s friend who did not want to grow up.

Disney is developing a series titled Tink about Peter Pan’s famous partner, Tinkerbell. According Deadline, Gary Marsh has created a new company within Disney to develop series for its different channels (Hulu, FX, Freeform, ABC, Disney Jr …) and one of those projects is the ‘spin-off’. Nevertheless, it is not the first time they have tried to do something centered on her. Poor Tinkerbell bears a kind of curse that has prevented the film that has been in development for a decade from going forward.

How it collects ScreenRantDisney has wanted to make a live action movie of the character since 2010. At that time Elizabeth Banks was on board and ready to bring the little fairy to life. The years passed and Reese Witherspoon took over in 2015. Victoria Strouse was in charge of the script, which was going to focus on the stage when Tinker Bell and Peter Pan were friends, before meeting Wendy and the rest of her siblings.

However, since then no details have been known and now we see that the studio had other plans for this production. It maintains the title that was originally given to it –Tink, by its English name, Tinker Bell-, but it will be crafted in a completely different way. It is not known if it will continue to have live actors or if it will become animation.

Apparently, it has nothing to do with the movie Peter Pan & Wendy, directed by David Lowery and scheduled to premiere on Disney + in 2022. The film shows the protagonist confronting her parents because they want to send her to study at boarding school. In this way, he takes his brothers and goes to Neverland. With Peter Pan & Wendy, Disney seeks to redefine the mythical characters and introduce them to a new generation, something that could also be among their plans when developing the Tinkerbell series.

Above these lines do not miss the trailer of Cruella, a tape that you can enjoy at no extra cost with your Disney + subscription.
