Brittany Murphy to Give "Tinker Bell" Her Voice

by | June 21, 2006 | Comments

Now that they’ve made direct-to-video sequels from allllll their classic features, the Disney gang will finally give a voice to a character who’s remained mute for over 50 years — but at least they got a solid gal for the gig: Brittany Murphy will be providing the pipes in "Tinker Bell," Disney’s new animated feature that should hit theaters in Fall of 2007.

From our good pals at ComingSoon.net: "Disney opened Licensing International 2006 in New York by revealing Brittany Murphy as the voice of the sassy and spunky fairy for the 2007 release of "Tinker Bell." In the tradition of its many animated classics, Disney will bring to life an enchanting tale of Pixie Hollow and Tink’s new fairy friends voiced by some of Hollywood’s most talented actors.

"I’ve had the good fortune of playing many interesting characters, but none as magical as Tinker Bell," said Murphy. "To give Tinker Bell a voice for the first time in history is such an honor."

"Tinker Bell" will be the first time audiences hear Tinker Bell speak, as the movie brings to life the amazing world of Disney Fairies in all-new CG-animation. The movie, to release globally in Fall 2007 by DisneyToon Studios and Walt Disney Home Entertainment, will be supported with a strong marketing campaign and a broad consumer products line at major retailers around the world."

Although best known for her live-action assets in movies like "Clueless," "Girl, Interrupted," "8 Mile," and "Sin City," Ms. Murphy is certainly no stranger to the animated world. She’s done extensive voice work in titles like "Good Boy!," TV’s "King of the Hill" and the upcoming "Happy Feet." Plus she’s really cute.

P.S. I always thought "Tinker Bell" was one word. Didn’t you?
