I am SOOOO excited for this!! Tinker Bell is one of my favorite Disney characters because she's so sassy and of course, a Fairy! I even have a Fairy tattoo!

So news broke the other day that Yara Shahidi who you know from the TV show "Black-ish" has been tapped to play Tinkerbell in the Disney Live-ActionPeter Pan & Wendy.

This is the latest live-action adaptation.

The cast also features Jude Law as Captain Hook, Alexander Molony as Peter Pan and Ever Anderson as Wendy.
