Preview: KT Tunstall soundtracks TINKER BELL and THE LEGEND OF THE NEVERBEAST

Written by

On March 3, DisneyToon Studios will follow-up this year's THE PIRATE FAIRY with TINKER BELL and THE LEGEND OF THE NEVERBEAST, an all-new Disney Fairies adventure, and one that we'll no doubt be enjoying here at Rock Father HQ (fact: Addie's bedroom has one full wall decorated with Disney Fairies artwork). Today comes word that songstress KT Tunstall has provided three songs to the film's soundtrack: "Float," "Strange Sight" and "1000 Years." Check out a preview of the opening sequence featuring "Float" below, along with some words from those involved...

"KT is a celebrated songwriter and musician," says director Steve Loter. "She reminds me of Fawn in a way with her big heart and this amazing voice that has a little bit of edge and a tremendous amount of appeal."

51jV4VNvhrLThe all-new Tinker Bell film is about the relationship that develops between Fawn, a compassionate animal fairy who thinks with her heart, and Gruff, a massive beast with glowing green eyes who seems to be on a mission. "It's a real action-adventure movie," says Tunstall. "The characters are so cool. I was over the moon to take part. Disney Animation has such an incredible heritage of work, spanning decades, and it's really special to be part of that."

Tunstall had fun channeling the film's heroine. "'Float' is Fawn's opening theme," she says. "It's fantastic how she spends her days looking after all the animals around Pixie Hollow. The song says, 'I'll just float.' She doesn't have to have a reason, she just really loves having a pair of wings, so she's going out for a fly, getting into trouble and mischief."

The artist also helped introduce the NeverBeast. "'Strange Sight' is heard when Fawn discovers this beast living in the woods near Pixie Hollow," says Tunstall. "He's a huge, scary-looking guy, but she isn't afraid. She wants to help him and make friends with him, but can't work out what he is or what he's doing with the rocks he's collecting."

The third song in Tunstall's lineup, which she sings with singer/songwriter Bleu, is an emotional song that can be heard during the film's end credits.

About the Film: Disneytoon Studios returns to Pixie Hollow with the heartwarming adventure “Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast.” The new story explores an ancient myth of a fabled creature whose distant roar sparks the curiosity of Tinker Bell’s good friend Fawn (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin), an animal fairy who’s not afraid to break the rules to help an animal in need. But this animal—massive and strange with glowing green eyes—is not really welcome in Pixie Hollow, and the scout fairies are determined to capture the mysterious beast before it destroys their home. Fawn, who sees a tender heart beneath his gruff exterior, must convince Tink (voice of Mae Whitman) and the girls to risk everything to rescue the NeverBeast before time runs out. Directed by Steve Loter (“Kim Possible”) and produced by Michael Wigert (“Secret of the Wings”), “Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast” roars to life in March 3, 2015.
