Walt Disney Studios and DisneyToon Studios have announced that actor/singer/composer Carlos Ponce will assume the role of sensitive pirate Bonito in The Pirate Fairy). Serving as rigger alongside James and Zarina in the film, the huge Spaniard can throw a harpoon a hundred yards. But Bonito is quite passionate about sewing, not only the ship’s sails, but also applying dainty double-stitched seams to his fairy captain’s tiny outfits.
From the world of Peter Pan comes The Pirate Fairy, a swashbuckling new adventure about Zarina (voice of Christina Hendricks), a smart and ambitious dust-keeper fairy who’s captivated by blue pixie dust and its endless possibilities. When Zarina’s wild ideas get her into trouble, she flees Pixie Hollow and joins forces with the scheming pirates of Skull Rock, who make her captain of their ship. Tinker Bell (voice of Mae Whitman) and her friends must embark on an epic adventure to find Zarina, and together they go sword-to-sword with the band of pirates led by a cabin boy named James (voice of Tom Hiddleston), who’ll soon be known as Captain Hook himself. With laughter, heart, magic and thrills, The Pirate Fairy also stars the vocal talents of Lucy Liu, Raven-Symone, Megan Hilty and Anjelica Huston.
Disney’s The Pirate Fairy will be available to own on Blu-ray on April 1, 2014 and is currently available for pre-order).
