I'm a fast-flying fairy; a true rare talent. And this just a small part of what I do.

Vidia is one of the main characters of the Disney Fairies franchise, making her animated debut as the main antagonist of Disney's 2008 film Tinker Bell. She is a sarcastic fast-flying fairy who was once Tinker Bell's rival. After a series of adventures together, however, the two became close friends.



Vidia is sly, moody, vindictive, and selfish but has a good heart when all is said and done. She tends to use sugary phrases, such as "darling" and "dear" condescendingly to other fairies. She is said to be the fastest fairy in Pixie Hollow, but her title gets to her head, as she is determined to keep her title and go to great lengths to achieve this. Not only does she feel she is the best in speed, but the best fairy overall and berates anyone who thinks otherwise. She is incredibly strong-willed and outspoken, much like Tinker Bell, which can also indicate why the two fairies clash many times.

Despite her negative traits, Vidia ultimately has a good heart, most notably seen in Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue where she follows after Tinker Bell to ensure she stays out of trouble and traps her in a fairy-sized house made by a human girl in an attempt to teach Tink a good lesson on how dangerous human things can be. When the human girl ends up taking Tink to her home, Vidia puts all of her differences and animosity with the tinker aside to rescue her, feeling responsible. Upon this adventure, Vidia reforms completely and is shown to be much friendlier with Tink and her friends.

Even so, she still maintains her anti-hero persona as seen in The Pixie Hollow Games where she is looking forward to Rosetta embarrassing herself during the competitions, knowing the garden fairy's fear of dirt and mud (which is much unlike the other garden fairies, who only do not want to enter because they never even came close to winning). She still holds her low opinion of tinkers when she, Tinker Bell, and Silvermist switch talents, with her becoming a tinker, much to her horror (though she soon grows to accept and warm up to it).

Physical appearance[]

Vidia is a small, slender, and hand-sized fairy. She has fair skin with pointy ears, lavender eyelids, gray eyes, and pink lips, long purplish-black hair tied to a high ponytail with a dark purple band, and clear wings on her back. She wears a dark purple vest with pink feathers, both dark purple pants, and ballet flats.

In contrast to her fellow fairy companions, such as Tinker Bell, Rosetta, Iridessa, Silvermist, and Fawn, who all are designed with rounder and softer facial features and wear bright-colored clothing, Vidia is designed with a less rounded and more angular and refined facial features and wears darker-colored clothing, perhaps to reflect her "mean girl" persona and her original role as the main antagonist in the first Tinker Bell film.


Tinker Bell[]

When a new fairy arrives in Pixie Hollow, Vidia and the other fairies are present to witness what talent she shall become. The fairy, eventually named Tinker Bell, becomes a tinker fairy. Vidia scoffs at the tinker-talents, calling them the most useless talent in all of Pixie Hollow. Later on, Tinker Bell attempts to befriend Vidia, but Vidia immediately dislikes her because of her unusually strong talent. During their first meeting, Vidia also learns that Tinker Bell believes she is going to the mainland, though no one informed her that it is only nature-talent fairies that travel to the mainland. In an attempt to witness the fairy embarrass herself, Vidia advises Tink to prove her worth of going to the mainland, prompting Tinker Bell to create an array of inventions to showcase during Queen Clarion's review.

Later on at the review, Vidia witnesses as Tinker Bell's inventions prove to be less than impressive. Vidia watches happily as Queen Clarion informs Tink that tinkers do not go to the mainland as it is only a job for the nature-talents, leaving the tinker downhearted. Because tinkers cannot go to the mainland, Tinker Bell decides to change her talent, which hasn't been done before. During a lesson on how to be an animal fairy, Tinker Bell accidentally attracts the attention of a hawk. Tink hides in Vidia's private hiding spot in a tree hollow. Vidia falls into the hawk's vision and is nearly killed; though the other fairies save her by throwing fruits at the creature, Vidia is also hit. After the hawk retreats, Vidia lifts herself up but is covered with fruit, proving to be quite embarrassing.

Tink tries to help, but Vidia denies and tells the tinker off. After Tinker Bell fails to learn the other talents, she goes to Vidia for help as a last resort. Vidia craftily tells the tinker that capturing the vicious sprinting thistles would prove her worth. However, once she sees Tinker Bell making progress, she lets the captured thistles loose and, while attempting to recapture them, Tink destroys all the preparations for spring. However, Tink decides to redeem herself by making good use of her talent and concocting various innovations to help restore all the preparations thrice as fast.

When Vidia witnesses this, she attempts to destroy everyone's sudden hope in the tinker by reminding them that she was the cause of the disaster. Vidia and Tink then get into a heated argument, during which Tink asked Vidia if she has helped anyone but herself, unknowingly got Vidia to yell that she should have told her to capture the hawk instead of the thistles, thus revealing her true self. Queen Clarion punishes the fast-flying fairy by forcing her to gather all the sprinting thistles that Tink unintentionally unleashed upon Pixie Hollow and return them to Needle Point Meadow. Vidia points out that such a task can take forever, only to Queen Clarion tell her that if she doesn't want that to happen, then she should get started. After this, Vidia was never an antagonist again.

Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure[]

Vidia plays a minor role and has no dialogue in the second film. She only makes two cameos and does not appear throughout the rest of the film otherwise. Her first cameo is during the opening song. Her second cameo is at the end of the film, where she hides the fact that she is proud that Tinker Bell came through.

Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue[]

During the summertime, Vidia and many other fairies and sparrow men have journeyed to the mainland to attend Fairy Camp. On the first day of camp, in an attempt to keep Tinker Bell away from humans, Vidia reveals the presence of humans near the camp, urging Tink to go out and discover. When she does, Vidia follows after her to make sure she does not get into mischief. When Vidia finally convinces Tinker Bell to head back to camp with her, the two stumble upon a small fairy-sized house created by humans. Vidia immediately finds it dangerous, while Tinker Bell heads in to explore. Despite Vidia's constant warnings to exit, Tinker Bell refuses to leave, as she is too busy looking around. To teach Tink a lesson, Vidia uses her wind ability to slam the door shut. Unfortunately, the human girl (Elizabeth Griffiths), who created the house to meet a real fairy, begins to approach Vidia and Tinker Bell, with the latter still inside the house.

Vidia desperately attempts to open the door, but the door is jammed. Vidia then hides in the nearby grass as the human girl takes Tinker Bell back to her home upon discovering her inside the playhouse. Vidia rushes back to camp and rallies Rosetta, Iridessa, Fawn, Silvermist, Clank, and Bobble to rescue Tink. Because of the rain, however, the fairies cannot simply fly to Tink's rescue, but Clank and Bobble come up with the idea of building a boat. Once the boat is completed, the fairies make way for the human house. As the adventure progresses, Vidia begins to feel more and more guilty about Tinker Bell's capture, eventually confessing to the others that she slammed the door, causing Tinker Bell to get trapped in the makeshift house. Rosetta, Iridessa, Silvermist, and Fawn comfort Vidia about the situation and inform her that it could have been worse without her presence.

With Vidia's guilt now abolished, the fairies move on, with Clank and Bobble finding the house. They sneak inside but are suddenly attacked by the humans' cat, Mr. Twitches. While Rosetta, Fawn, Silvermist, Iridessa, Clank, and Bobble take care of the cat, Vidia heads to Lizzy's room. When Vidia finally reaches the room, Lizzy is in the process of introducing her father, Dr. Griffiths, to Tinker Bell. Vidia silently witnesses this and notices Dr. Griffiths emptying a jar, preparing to capture Tinker Bell. Vidia pushes Tink aside and ends up captured instead. Dr. Griffiths quickly makes his way to London to reveal Vidia to a group of scientists. With the rain still going strong outside, Tinker Bell and the others bestow pixie dust upon Lizzy so that she may fly them to her father.

Once they reach him, Lizzy helps her father notice the dangers of his actions, causing Dr. Griffiths to release Vidia, as he meant no harm to the fairies. As a reward, Tink, Vidia, and the others sprinkle pixie dust on Dr. Griffiths, so he may fly through the London skies alongside his daughter. Later on, Vidia and the others are seen having a picnic with Lizzy and her father. Meanwhile, Vidia and Tink have officially formed a friendship, letting go of their past rivalry.

Pixie Preview[]

Vidia appears in a handful of these comedic short films based on the Tinker Bell films.

In "Just One of The Girls", she serves as the main protagonist. Vidia acts cordially with her friends, making a cool breeze for Rosetta, complimenting Silvermist, and volunteering to carry an umbrella when Tinker Bell invites her to go to the Palm Tree Cove with them. Vidia then wakes up, sure it was a nightmare, but when the girls arrive and she receives the same invitation, she accepts. Vidia remarks that Rosetta should be the one to carry the umbrella.

In "If The Hue Fits", she constantly provokes and makes fun of Tinker Bell over her failure to create fall colors for the leaves, causing Tink's cheeks to flush to red with anger.

In "There's No Place Like Gnome", Vidia warns Tink about how the garden gnome the latter discovered, like other human objects, are dangerous, which she is proven right when Tink's gnome accidentally causes Cheese to land on Vidia.

In "Banner Day", she frequently interrupts Tink's attempts at hanging up the banner for the Pixie Hollow Games by fast-flying every where the banner is hung at while training for the games, much to the latter's annoyance.

In "How I Train: Vidia", she demonstrates how she trains for the Pixie Hollow Games.

In "Treasure Chest", she gets trapped in a treasure chest and frequently gets into various accidents inside, which Tink remains oblivious of.

Secret of the Wings[]

Vidia is first seen attending to her normal duties as a fast-flying fairy, creating a smooth breeze. Later on, Vidia and her friends rush to the doctor after Tinker Bell freezes her wings by purposefully crossing the border to the snow, frozen Winter Woods. The healing-talent fairy ensures that Tinker Bell would be fine, and the friends depart. When outside, Tinker Bell tells her friends that her wings glowed when she crossed over, though she is unsure why. Vidia and the others do not exactly believe her, so Tink crosses over again. When she does, she learns that when her wings glow, that means her fraternal twin sister, Periwinkle, is near. Tinker Bell and Periwinkle grow a strong and close sisterly bond over the day, and Tink wants Peri to see the rest of Pixie Hollow.

That night, Tinker Bell enlists the help of Vidia and the others to create a snow-making machine that will allow Peri to visit. However, Vidia is cynical when she hears Peri's tour will end with meeting Queen Clarion. Tink ensures that Queen Clarion will rethink the border law upon learning that she and Peri are sisters. Vidia agrees, and the machine is complete overnight, and Periwinkle is able to visit. When Vidia and the others meet Periwinkle, Vidia is surprised by the striking similarities she shares with Tinker Bell.

Nevertheless, she welcomes her and warns her that Tinker Bell may be a little tricky to get along with. The tour is short-lived, however, as the heat begins to fade Peri's wings. Tink and Vidia lift Peri back across the border, where they are confronted by Lord Milori, the ruler of the Winter Woods. Milori declares that it is too dangerous for Periwinkle and Tinker Bell to continue seeing each other.

Vidia tries to comfort Tink and take her home, but the tinker refuses to have it end like that. However, Queen Clarion agrees that it is too dangerous, so the two sisters part ways. Later on, the snow machine begins to freeze parts of Pixie Hollow. Vidia and the others destroy it, but the damage it's already done threw off the balance of the seasons. If the fairies do not think of something, the Pixie Dust Tree would be destroyed, and no fairy would fly again. Periwinkle and the frost fairies use their ability to preserve the Pixie Dust Tree, which proves successful. When Tink reveals that her efforts to bring the frost fairies to Pixie Hollow to save the tree had resulted in her breaking her wing, Vidia is shown as one of those who is genuinely sad over it. However, when Tink's special connection with her sister Perri caused her wing to be healed, Vidia is one of the first to show her joy in joining in the mid-air group hug, proving that she really does care about Tink. In the end, warm fairies are allowed to cross the border, Tink and Peri lovingly reunite as true sisters, and Vidia sparks quite a friendship with the frost fairy, Spike.

The Pixie Hollow Games[]

In the special, Vidia represents the fast-flying fairies with Zephyr as her teammate competing in the games with the animal, water, light, garden, storm, tinker, and other nature-talent fairies. She trains herself by flying faster than the speed of sound itself. When Rosetta reluctantly agrees to participate in the Pixie Hollow Games to represent the Garden Fairies alongside Chloe, Vidia is the only one whom is not sympathetic nor supportive of Rosetta, as she instead looks forward to it by saying "This is going to be good", hoping Rosetta will humiliate herself.

Vidia and Zephyr got second place in the finals, but they took a shortcut during the cart race, which led their cart to crash and lose it's wheels, resulting in them being eliminated.

The Pirate Fairy[]

Vidia appears in the fifth Tinker Bell film, where she and her friends go after Zarina, who has stolen the blue pixie dust from Pixie Hollow. Zarina switches her and the other fairies' talents, with Vidia, much to her horror, becoming a tinker fairy.

Throughout the film, she starts to think and build like a tinker. She builds a boat out of a hatched crocodile egg, a rod, and possibly the swords the fairies use to fight the pirates.

Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast[]

Vidia returns in the sixth Tinker Bell film alongside with her fellow fairies.

Printed media[]

Vidia goes on the quest to restore Mother Dove's egg with Prilla and Rani in Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg. She is selected by Mother Dove to go, though Queen Clarion officially appoints Rani as leader so Vidia will not take over. While Prilla distracts Captain Hook, Vidia helps Rani take his cigar holder and later plucks the feather from the golden hawk. But when Rani offers to trade her wings to gain a mermaid's comb, she cannot bring herself to do the job, leaving it up to Prilla instead. After all three objects are gathered, Vidia helps take them to Kyto.

When Queen Clarion's crown goes missing in Vidia and the Fairy Crown, Tinker Bell accuses her of taking it. All the other fairies believe it too, except Prilla. Queen Clarion sets her court date to be the next morning and Prilla and Vidia set out to clear her name. They investigated and questioned anyone who had handled the crown, eventually discovering that Nora had mistaken it for a replica crown party favor and put it with the other replicas. Together with Dupe, they try on all the crowns until Vidia finds the real one. Vidia makes all of the fairies she questioned stand as witnesses, clearing her name.

When Vidia does not go after the wand in Fairy Haven and the Quest for the Wand, Mother Dove locks her in Rani's room. She eventually breaks free and takes the wand and wishes to fly as fast as she wanted. But because there is no longer any challenge in flying as fast as she could, it is no longer enjoyable. Thus, her wish, as Mother Dove had predicted, "broke her heart." The wish is later reversed, and her speed is brought back to normal.

She falls in love with Kyto in Fairies and the Quest for Never Land. She appears to be on his side but is still loyal to the fairies. In the end, she helps Gwendolyn distract Kyto while the other fairies capture him.

She appears in Silvermist and the Ladybug Curse when she falls in the water, and Silvermist saves her, making her stuck at the fairy picnic. Later, she tries to upset Silvermist many times about the white ladybug curse. However, she does wake Silvermist up for the water ball tournament, showing a bit of kindness. Silvermist gets a bulls-eye when Vidia calls her a coward.

In Four Clues for Rani, she pairs up with Dulcie for the Fairy Treasure Hunt. She makes a bet with Rani that if she wins, Rani has to be her servant and vice versa. Rani and Ronan later hear her at Echo Cavern, screaming at Dulcie that she doesn't want another muffin. Vidia loses the bet, having been tricked by Peter Pan and the Lost Boys and seems less than happy about being Rani's servant.

In the books, Vidia has tattered wings due to overuse, but her wings are healthy in her movie and park appearances. She also has a more angular face in the books.

Disney Parks[]

Vidia appears alongside her Pixie pals at Disneyland's Pixie Hollow. She flew in on August 26, 2010 to promote the release of Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue.

A topiary of Vidia was also featured during the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival in the spring. She is now a rare character since the discontinuation of the Disney Fairies franchise.


The Disney Wiki has a collection of images and media related to Vidia.


  • Vidia's hairstyle is similar to Megara's hairstyle in Hercules, albeit in a darker color.
  • Before officially being cast as the voice of Vidia, Pamela Adlon provided scratch voice-over work for a few years for the character.
  • Vidia is one of the only three fairies made specifically for the Disney Fairies franchise to originate from the books to became a major character in the films, the other two being Terence and Queen Clarion.
  • According to Gail Carson Levine's official blog, when being proposed by Disney to write Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg, the name suggested to use for the character was actually "Invidia"; however, she did not like the name, thinking it was too depressing, so the name ended up being shortened to just "Vidia".
  • Vidia's low opinion of tinker fairies is likely meant to be an allegory for racial and ethnic discrimination, as well as segregation of people based on race during the 1930s-1960s.
  • Vidia actually cares for Tinker Bell's well-being, though she will rarely admit it.
  • Vidia is barefoot in the graphic novels.
  • Vidia is a little similar to Tinker Bell, and her original portrayal in the first Tinker Bell film is a dark reflection of Tinker Bell herself (particularly the latter's portrayal in the original Peter Pan film), all at the same time. While both Vidia and Tink start off as selfish, sassy and fiery-tempered during their debuts, they both reform and eventually become nicer as the franchise went on. Although, unlike Tink in the 1953 film, who reformed much faster within her debut film, Vidia on the other hand, is more extreme in her actions in her debut appearance, going so far as to actively cause harm and destruction towards the other fairies without a slew of remorse, and doesn't reform until after her first appearance. In fact, Vidia's original portrayal in the first Tinker Bell film is an example of what Tinker Bell would've become in the original Peter Pan film if she lets her jealousy towards Wendy Darling consume her.
    • Vidia also serves as a lesson to Tinker Bell in the first Tinker Bell film. Had Tink herself were so jealous over not being able to go to the mainland like the other nature-talent fairies and never accepts her job as a tinker, she would've ended up just like Vidia in the first film.
    • By the end of the first Tinker Bell film, when Vidia is forced to gather all the sprinting thistles which she made Tink unleashed upon Pixie Hollow and return them to Needle Point Meadows as punishment for her actions, she throws a tantrum the exact same way Tink did when Peter banished her for making the Lost Boys shoot Wendy down with catapults in the original Peter Pan film.
  • Vidia is the only fairy who did not go to the mainland in the first film, likely because she was punished by Queen Clarion for her cruel actions at the end of the first film.
  • Her name is also shown in a speech bubble by Tinker Bell in the mobile game Disney Magic Kingdoms, where she says that she almost went as fast as Vidia after the player unlocks her.
