Reese Witherspoon is Tinkerbell in new Disney movie

With Joe Wright’s Pan already on the way, there’s yet another Neverland-based movie on the horizon, with Disney setting the wheels in motion for Tinkerbell solo movie, Tink. What’s more, the studio has found itself a star, with THR reporting Reese Witherspoon will play the titular fairy.

According to the report, Witherspoon will also produce the film, which will “play with the idea and timeline of the well-known Peter Pan narrative”. Victoria Strouse, co-writer of forthcoming Pixar adventure Finding Dory, has signed on to pen the script.

A director has yet to be confirmed, but given Witherspoon’s stated mission to develop more female-led movie projects, we’d imagine it will be a female helmer in the hotseat. No release date has been set at this stage.
