We’re so excited! Disney just announced a MAJOR casting in one of their most beloved franchises. Reese will play Tinker Bell in a new Peter Pan-inspired movie, and we think that the pixyish blond is perfect for the part!
We don’t think there’s anything Reese Witherspoon, 39, can’t do, and now, the Legally Blond star will be taking on one of her best roles yet. It was just announced that the Academy Award winning actress will star as Tinker Bell, one of Disney’s most iconic characters, in a new version of Peter Pan, titled Tink. Elle Woods with wings? We love it!
Reese Witherspoon Is Tinker Bell — Starring In Disney Live-Action Movie ‘Tink’
The project is just getting underway now, but we like what we’re hearing so far.
“The actress is attached to star in and produce Tink, a live-action take on the classic Peter Pan character Tinker Bell,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Apparently, the movie will re-tell the classic story from the point-of-view of the mischievous little fairy.
The publication goes on to report that, “It is also being developed in the vein of Maleficent, Disney’s 2014 hit that starred Angelina Jolie as the evil witch from Sleeping Beauty. Like Maleficent, this Tinker Bell tale is conceived as ‘the story you don’t know,’ and will offer a new perspective on the character.”
We could only love this more if Maleficent made a cameo in Reese’s new film.
Could they be any cuter?! Reese and her daughter Ava recently posed for a selfie together, and the two cute blondes could not look more alike. With those blonde locks and stunning blue eyes, they look more like twins than mother and daughter.
