Disney gives Tinkerbell a make-over

Sheesh — imagine going for more than 50 years without a new outfit! Well, Dora The Explorer and Strawberry Shortcake aren’t the only classic animated stars getting a facelift for the 21st century.

Disney’s Tinkerbell has undergone an extreme makeover for her new straight-to-DVD feature. The petite fairy is ditching the skimpy green frock she’s been rocking since 1953 in favor of something with a bit more fabric.

Peter Pan’s sidekick no longer, Tink will greet fall in jacket, leggings, and boots in her new adventure Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure, due on DVD and Blu-Ray Oct. 27.

I think it looks ok.
bellebass 15th-Oct-2009 02:32 am (UTC)
and here I thought the whole point of her was to be glamorous
sarah_n_c 15th-Oct-2009 04:41 am (UTC)
MTE. She WAS modeled after Marilyn Monroe...
floetcist 15th-Oct-2009 04:53 am (UTC)
Really? I didn't know that.
supermo2g 15th-Oct-2009 05:49 am (UTC)
actually she was modeled after Margaret Kerry, at least by animator Marc Davis.
xwildhopex 15th-Oct-2009 05:50 am (UTC)
She was actually modeled after a woman named Margaret Kerry (who is stille alive!), the Marilyn Monroe story is just a myth. =)
minalskare 15th-Oct-2009 06:40 am (UTC)
Not anymore. Now she's all creative and shit.
gypsy_eyes 15th-Oct-2009 03:19 am (UTC)
lol i was just thinking that. that statement alone made me feel 80 years old.
jamesiepoo 15th-Oct-2009 03:40 am (UTC)
lol i know.
hasn't that bitch been out for like 5 years tops?
floetcist 15th-Oct-2009 04:54 am (UTC)
Its been 9 years (the show debuted in 2000) but still...not remotely close enough to be compared to characters link Tinkerbell.
mirlos 15th-Oct-2009 02:32 am (UTC)
makes her look like a tomboy to me
cecilia_weasley 15th-Oct-2009 02:32 am (UTC)
I love the little outfit but it's not really "her".
ohhkathleen 15th-Oct-2009 03:40 am (UTC)
Right? And I like how they also made her thinner. Like the old one was fat.
cecilia_weasley 15th-Oct-2009 03:48 am (UTC)
Is she? I didn't see that. :(
chelzor 15th-Oct-2009 05:48 am (UTC)
I was thinking they made her look more boyish by thinning her curves.
psion_dynamo 15th-Oct-2009 06:34 am (UTC)
her wings seem smaller, too. I guess they don't need to be as big since she's anorexic now. XD
violetmist2003 15th-Oct-2009 08:48 pm (UTC)
lol just what i was thinking.
ironicmustache 15th-Oct-2009 02:40 am (UTC)
i didnt even realize it was her! i just skimmed and then went "...well, where's the picture of the new her? ... oh, that's not peter pan ..."

iluvutoosweetie 15th-Oct-2009 02:59 am (UTC)
yeah, it's like she went crazy and started dressing like him since she subconsciously knows she can never have him...
joaniemaloney 15th-Oct-2009 07:05 am (UTC)

koalafrog 15th-Oct-2009 02:54 pm (UTC)

ugh like she'd be in the fucking woods... I hate Kokiri Villiage
megalixer 15th-Oct-2009 03:24 am (UTC)
haha I'm home sick and am probably going to be again tomorrow, this makes me want to spend tomorrow playing zelda 'cause that's what I would always do when I was sick in elementary school
oceanhue 15th-Oct-2009 04:53 am (UTC)
My first thought. God, I fucking hated that faerie with her random "HAI!!" at the end of the game when she announces that you can roll by pushing A or some shit
silverfox1027 15th-Oct-2009 02:33 am (UTC)
I scrolled really fast and thought it was Link from Zelda.
m3ts_ftw 15th-Oct-2009 02:34 am (UTC)
yes! I was trying to figure out who she reminded me of.
savanchel 15th-Oct-2009 02:33 am (UTC)
She has an old lady face now, kinda.
spill_fiction 15th-Oct-2009 04:02 am (UTC)
Lauren Bacall FTW. I just finished reading her autobiography. Fierce lady.

malzazzle 15th-Oct-2009 02:33 am (UTC)
she looks like that guy from Zelda (idk, my siblings used to play that game but I never did).

I'm glad she's not dressed like a wanton trollop now, though.
lillie_poo_pod 15th-Oct-2009 02:33 am (UTC)
She looks like Peter Pan now.
