You may be familiar with the Disney Fairies, the little-sister franchise to the Princesses that has a number of animated movies and a variety of merchandise available. The newest release, Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast, will be out March 3, 2015. I found it interesting for two reasons: the voice talent involved, and that they’re introducing a gang of more adventurous fairies, expanding the concept.
The film features the Scout Fairies, a fearless group who protect Pixie Hollow. They are “agile and athletic with a keen ability to spot trouble before it gets out of control.” The movie focuses on Nyx, voiced by Rosario Dawson, “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 film also features the voices of Ginnifer Goodwin (Fawn), Mae Whitman (Tinker Bell), Megan Hilty (Rosetta), Lucy Liu (Silvermist), Raven Symone (Iradessa), and Angelica Huston (QueenClarion). That’s quite the cast. The plot involves the NeverBeast, a mythical creature which I’m sure the fairies come in contact with. Fawn is an animal fairy who wants to help it, while the scout fairies want to capture it to prevent it damaging Pixie Hollow. Here’s the trailer:
