Printable Activity Sheets: Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast

 

The all-new Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast will be available on Blu-ray, Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere March 3rd! Ginnifer Goodwin (who you may know from “Once Upon a Time”) voices the character Fawn in this new Disney movie. “Fawn is a character who loves all animals unconditionally,” said director Steve Loter. “She will help any animal that needs her, but sometimes Fawn thinks too impulsively, when she should be thinking with her head, as well as her heart.”

Neverbeast Goodwin Fawn Announcement

Loter says there’s a lot of Goodwin in the character. “Fawn was inspired by my daughter and her unconditional love of animals,” he said. “But Ginnifer had a very strong hand in crafting the character. Her sense of fun and her wondrous view of the world gave Fawn direction. You can hear the smile in Ginnifer’s voice—this is a character that loves life and lives it to its fullest.”

Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast

The heartwarming story explores the ancient myth of a mysterious creature whose distant roar sparks the curiosity of Tinker Bell’s friend Fawn, an animal fairy who’s not afraid to break the rules to rescue the NeverBeast before time runs out. The film, releasing in-home March 3, 2015, also features the voices of Mae Whitman (Tinker Bell), Megan Hilty (Rosetta), Lucy Liu (Silvermist), Raven Symone (Iradessa), Angelica Huston (QueenClarion) and is directed by Steve Loter (“Kim Possible”) and produced by Makul Wigert (“Secret of the Wings”).
