Disney Fairies is a Disney franchise launched in 2005. The line began with the publication of the book Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg, a novel written by Gail Carson Levine, the author of Ella Enchanted and illustrated by David Christiana. A chapter book series has also been released with four computer-generated direct-to-DVD films in development, the first one titled Tinker Bell. Additionally, there are toys, clothing, and accessories within this licensing of the franchise.
The franchise centers on Tinker Bell, the expressive pixie from Peter Pan and its sequel, Return to Never Land. In both prior Disney films, Tinker Bell communicated through pantomime and ringing bells, often translated by Peter. Tinker Bell marks the first time Disney's version of Tinker Bell has a voice actress, Mae Whitman. The film was released to both DVD and Blu-ray on October 28, 2008. Ms. Whitman replaced the since-deceased Brittany Murphy, who had scheduling conflicts with Disney Animation chairman John Lasseter.
Along with Tinker Bell, Disney Fairies also features a score of original characters created specifically for the line. The Disney Fairies film series has a somewhat different cast of characters than the book series. Both series take place in Pixie Hollow, the secret world of the Neverland fairies.
Characters from the Books
Prilla is an acrobatic, fun-loving Mainland visiting fairy (also known as clapping talent). She's the only one of her kind, which makes her special. At first, she didn't know what her talent was, in fact, she didn't have a talent at all. Prilla soon found out what her talent was in Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg where Prilla, Vidia, and Rani, must save Mother Dove because her egg was destroyed by a horrible storm.
A water fairy. Rani plays a major role in Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg, along with Prilla and Vidia. To save Mother Dove, the other fairies, and Neverland, Rani sacrifices her wings permanently, becoming the only fairy who cannot fly, but also the only fairy that can swim.
Bess is an art-talent fairy, who just loves to paint, she's in charge in doing a painting of Mother Dove, every time The Molt comes. She tends to spatter paint on her clothes and not even know it!! She's very sensitive to criticism and is very kind, like most of the other fairies. Bess appears in the book, A Masterpiece for Bess when she paints a portrait of Tink, and everyone thinks it's amazing but then suddenly everyone wants a portrait of themselves, and Bess can't keep up with all the requests.

- Main article: Rosetta
Rosetta is a garden fairy, who of course, like the other garden fairies, loves to take care of plants and flowers. Rosetta is very fancy and loves to try on pretty dresses and shoes. Although Never fairies don't age, out of Tink's friends, she's the first to arrive.
Rosetta appears in the Disney Fairy chapter book, Rosetta's Daring Day, where Rosetta promises Fawn that if she goes to Queen Clarion's fancy party, and does everything she says, such as wears dresses and being polite, she'll do everything Fawn says to do the next day...but Fawn, well, she's a real tomboy and loves to play rough games, and isn't very fancy like Rosetta...
- Main article: Iridessa
Iridessa, one of the most talented light fairies, is a detail-oriented perfectionist. She’s passionate about her work, but can also be a worrywart, even when she tries to see the bright side of things, but often smells disaster.
It can take some convincing to get her to go along with a risky or dangerous plan (a stubbornness that Tink certainly has too). In the end, though, she will always do anything to help a friend.
Voiced by Raven-Symoné
- Main article: Fawn
Fawn is an animal-talent fairy. Fawn is a rascally tomboy full of mirth and mischief. She's always ready to play, and the more rough-and-tumble the game, the better. Fawn is a born prankster—she likes to play tricks on Iridessa and Tink. Tink loves her mischievous nature. Fawn also doesn't like to judge things by appearances.
She speaks many different animal languages, but the burp-like toad-speak is her favorite. She is fluent in most all animal languages and is considered one of the best of her talent.
- Main article: Vidia
Vidia is a fast-flying-talent fairy. She has long black hair, fair skin, gray eyes, pouty lips, arched eyebrows and is a bit tall for a fairy. She prides herself on being the fastest fairy there is, and scoffs at the notion that anyone else–especially a fairy like Tinker Bell–is anywhere near her level.
Vidia tends to be secretive, keeping extra pixie dust locked in a box hidden under her bed and racing dragonflies when the other fairies aren't looking. She is self-centered and believes not all fairies are created equal. She is sassy and bold. She reforms in the 3rd film and becomes Tinker Bell's friend and the other fairies' friend.
Voiced by Pamela Adlon
- Main article: Periwinkle
Periwinkle is a frost talent Winter fairy and Tinker Bell's fraternal twin sister. She and Tink were born from the same fairy laugh but Periwinkle drifted into the Winter Woods, while Tink ended up being born at the Pixie Dust Tree.

Zarina is an ambitious dust-keeper fairy who steals Pixie Hollow's blue pixie dust and teams up with a crew of pirates, becoming their new captain.

At the opening of the 2005 Bologna International Children's Book Fair, the Walt Disney Company revealed its plan to introduce a children's illustrated novel for girls 6–10 years of age. Disney Fairies debuted September 2005, when Disney Publishing Worldwide unveiled the novel Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg, written by Newbery Honor-winning author Gail Carson Levine. The book's illustrations were inspired by the tradition and craft of early twentieth-century European children's book illustration. It was released in 45 countries and 32 languages with a US$1 million marketing and publicity campaign. It became a New York Times bestseller and has already sold over 1 million copies worldwide.
The story begins in Fairy Haven/Pixie Hollow, located in the heart of Never Land. Prilla, who is a brand-new fairy, born of a baby's laugh, arrives in Never Land and discovers that she has no talent for any of the fairy avocations. Tinker Bell takes Prilla to see Mother Dove, but before the wise bird can advise Prilla, Never Land is shaken by a terrible hurricane. Mother Dove is thrown off her nest, and her precious egg, which holds all the secrets of Neverland, is shattered. Immediately, all those who live in Never Land begin to age. The island's only hope is for some brave fairies to take the egg pieces to Kyto the dragon and ask him to restore it with his fiery breath.
In the Year of a Million Dreams celebration, bookstores released a form submitting a fairy character. The winner is said to be put in his/her own fairy's book.
Random House has published a series of chapter books under the banner "Tales of Pixie Hollow".

Since then, Playmates Toys Inc teamed up with Disney in October 2005 to design and produce a line of toys for the Disney Fairies, which will include 3.5" small dolls, 8" fashion dolls, playsets & activity sets with DVDs and collectible story cards.

Theme park attractions
In October 2008, two Pixie Hollow locations opened at Disney Parks. One opened at Disneyland Park near the Matterhorn in the area where Ariel's Grotto was formerly located, and the other at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom in Mickey's Toontown Fair. Another version opened at Hong Kong Disneyland on January 21, 2011, as one of the festivities to celebrate the park's 5th anniversary. At these attractions, guests have the opportunity to meet and greet Tinker Bell and other fairies: Silvermist, Rosetta, Iredessa, Fawn, Terence, Vidia, and Periwinkle, as well as dine with them.
The Magic Kingdom location closed in February 2011 as part of the ongoing Fantasyland expansion. A larger Pixie Hollow area was included in the original plans for the expansion, but they have since been abandoned. On July 28, 2011, Tinkerbell and her fairy friends returned to the Magic Kingdom in "Tinker Bell's Magical Nook", located at the Adventureland Veranda. On May 20, 2014, the attraction closed, and Tinker Bell moved to the Town Square Theater where she can meet and greet guests without her fairy friends.
Pixie Hollow was an MMORPG created by The Walt Disney Company and released September 8, 2008. The basic version of the game was free to play online. The website was based partly on the Disney Fairies books written by Gail Carson Levine. Players with free accounts could create a female Fairy or male Sparrow Man avatar who each came with a small selection of furnishings to decorate a virtual room. Basic accounts could make friends with other players and have access to both 'speed' chat with pre-selected phrases and full chat where they were able to type their own messages. They could also play various "Talent Games", or fairy themed mini-games, found in the various meadows and forests of Pixie Hollow. While playing, the player could pick up leaves, seeds, and flowers which were the currency for buying items in the game. Players also played games and visited places to earn badges that they could see in their "leaf journal", which also served as a handbook and inventory. Players could purchase a monthly, semi-annual or annual membership allows access to additional features, such as the ability to make or buy additional clothes and furniture for the player's avatar and buy furniture to decorate a virtual room. In January 2012, "Pixie Diamonds" were introduced, an in-game currency that could be purchased with real-world money and used to buy or upgrade items without an active membership. Though the game was geared toward young girls, the game introduced a male character named Slate on April 22, 2010; he is referred to as a "Sparrow Man" rather than a male fairy. The game closed on September 19, 2013.
