It's been five years since Disney announced it's live action comedy Tink, and now they have finally cast an actress worthy of wriggling into Tinker Bell's iconic green dress.

Reese Witherspoon has been chosen to portray the gutsy fairy with attitude, and in my opinion, she is an excellent choice for the role. Not only does Witherspoon have the elven blond looks required for the beloved character, she has also earned her comedy stripes in roles such as in Legally Blonde.

Victoria Strouse, who wrote the script for Finding Dory, is penning the screenplay for the project, which does not have a director on board and is still in the early stages of development.

As of yet, there isn't much information on the adventures that Tink will be undertaking, but the project will be gleaning inspiration from Maleficent. According to insiders, Tink will tell us the untold backstory of Tinker Bell while playing with the timeline of the much loved Peter Pan story to give it a fresh twist.
