I have just read the first three chapters and the children have been pretty much abducted by Peter Pan. It was a girl called Tinker Bell exquisitely gowned in a skeleton leaf , cut low and square, through which her figure could be seen to best advantage. She was slightly inclined to embonpoint. A fat fairy?
Kate Gilbert banished her belly so she could slip into floaty dresses and wings after fearing that her hefty frame would her from being cast as Peter Pan's fairy friend. A 22 stone woman was shamed into losing eight stone after fearing she was too fat to tread the boards in her dream panto role as Tinkerbell. Kate Gilbert, 34, banished her belly so she could slip into floaty dresses and wings after fearing that her hefty frame would her from being cast as Peter Pan's fairy friend. And now the impish am-dram star is set to amaze audiences after shrinking down to an impressive size Events manager Kate said: "I knew that it might be a struggle to convince directors that I was fitting to be cast as fairy when I was stomping around on the stage. For years Kate, from Solihull, Warks, had been consigned to roles for women many years her senior. Her extra pounds meant she couldn't pass for characters her own age and she ended up masquerading as the White Witch in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and the Red Queen in Alice and Wonderland.
I remember watching Peter Pan when I was a little kid, so I thought it would be a great Father and Son bonding moment to watch the Disney classic together. Little did I realize what I was about to expose my innocent little son to Now, I'm not a crazy wrap-my-kid-in-bubble-wrap-everything-has-to-be-organic parent by any means, but I have to say that Peter Pan way worse than I ever remembered it to be. First of all, Tinkerbell a slutty, self-absorbed, psychopathic killer. Then she proceeds to try and kill Wendy just because Peter Pan is giving her a little attention.
Recently, I was fortunate enough to get an inside peek at what has happened to the TinkerBell property. After looking at the already in-progress project, Lasseter shut it down. This had to have been quite a blow to the people working on the film. Instead of crushing the dream, Lasseter gave them a chance to not just start over, but to make it better. Lasseter wanted to beef up the story angle.
