Details inside:


Shahidi is set to play Tinkerbell in Disney’s live-action Peter Pan redo. She will join Jude Law, who is set to play Captain Hook, and Alexander Molony and Ever Anderson, who will play Peter and Wendy.

David Lowery, who directed Pete’s Dragon for the studio, is on board to helm Peter Pan & Wendy, based on Disney’s 1953 animated movie and co-wrote the script with Toby Halbrooks.

At writing, Disney has not unveiled a tentative release date for the project.

    Watch they drag her the way they did Halle. I am here for all the black girls getting these white roles. Our kids need to see us in these type of roles. Representation is important.

    • Fancy BISH September 25, 2020

      They only get the role because they p*** and moan about things they don’t get the roles on talent, but its a win for you. All it shows is cry like a baby and you can win, great role model.

      • Fancy BISH September 26, 2020

        @Fake BISH, your obsession with black people is real! Go find Hollywood level talent in those trailer parks you dwell 🤣 💯

      Let me ask u, Do u prefer a dumb blonde to play mulan?????? Same thing in this case. This is tinker bell not Taco Bell, so stick with the original. Honey boo boo is the perfect cast for tinker bell💅🏿💅🏿💅🏿

      • Fancy BISH September 25, 2020

        Tinker Bell is not an ugly black woman like Yara Shahidi, she always had a Marilyn Monroe look to her.

    Don’t come for her because fairies are not real just like Mermaids so they can be whatever race.

    • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(Money me daddy!!) September 25, 2020

      Ewwww she’s a hot mess 🤮 Ursula suits her better 😂🤣😂🤣

  3. eric September 25, 2020

    I won’t say what I’m thinking until I see the entire cast.

  4. tyty September 25, 2020

    Peter Pan has been done to death, Hollywood is so unoriginal everything is a reboot. Disney live actions are s*** apart from maleficent. But I’m sure the whites are already on twitter seething over a fairy 🙄

    • Shayla Queen 👑 September 26, 2020

      Really? Most whites these days are the most hippy, leftist liberals. It’s them screaming for diversity and equality more than any other race. Just go to any college campus 😂

      • Shayla Queen 👑 September 26, 2020

        *diversity and equality for other races

  5. #TheTruth September 25, 2020

    I think there are 2 ways to look at it.

    As far as I’m concerned, I don’t care what ethnicity is the actress portraying the role.

    But I think studios are going for the easy way by picking black actresses for characters that were introduced as white – even tho I don’t think an anime should be a frozen representation of who a character is – versus actually creating new characters for black, latinos, asians etc. Which I think would be more of a statement from studios.

    I think Disney/Pixar, eventually along the way, has tried to represent different countries/cultures etc. with many movies (Pocahontas, Mulan, Princess & the frog, Coco, Moana…).
    The live action versions, besides Mulan, are all about the early successes that were not really worried about representing everyone. So I guess this is why they think they have to bring some mixity.

    But I think it’s much more gratifying to create new characters instead of flipping cards. Don’t pick a black guy to portray Superman or James Bond, create a new hero and make him latino, African descent, whatever, but have the audacity to create new characters than won’t be thought out as caucasians.

    I wish black people would stop stealing our obviously white characters. The outrage if it was the other way around…

    • Ace Blanks September 25, 2020

      You are an idiot!!!! Period point blank! Y’all have ALL the roles to begin with!!!! You probably the typical racist that doesn’t want us to EVER have anything!!!!

    • Meme September 25, 2020

      If black people were awarded roles at the magnitude that whites, all of these “white” roles wouldn’t be considered white. The thing is, black has been so under represented in Disney movies, so much to the point y’all think mermaids and fairies can only be white. It’s fictional for F sakes.

      • Fancy BISH September 25, 2020

        @Meme the She male in Disney animated movie Ariel was a white girl with red hair, In the Peter Pan movie Tinker Bell is white with blonde hair and they are based on these charters, not just any mermaid or fairie so NO a darkie shouldn’t be allowed to play them charters.
        It’s just like a white actress playing Storm or a white man playing Black Panther, it doesn’t make sense.

      • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(Money me daddy!!) September 25, 2020

        Fancy Fake…take that ridiculous essay you just wrote and shove it up ur racist ass. 💋💋💋💁🏼‍♀️💁🏼‍♀️🖕🏻🖕🏻

      • tyty September 26, 2020

        Well @ fancy your irrelevant racist comments don’t mean s*** now do they cause Hollywood is giving all the ”darkies” these roles and will continue to do so you ain’t heard Hawkman is now being played by a black man in the new upcoming DC blockbuster. Stay mad and seethe neandermonkey. Hollywood are only catering to the demographics that matter and will soon take up a large chunk of the population Latinos and darkies. Now Seethe and get with the program.

      • Fancy BISH September 26, 2020

        @Fake BISH aka Clarkson Whitaker, get your dumpster fire ass off this blog 😂

      • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(Money me daddy!!) September 26, 2020

        I agree with u trashy ashy bish for the first time. U go gurl! 💅🏿💅🏿💅🏿 Go kick some -a-s-s. 👵🏿👵🏿👵🏿

      • Fancy BISH September 26, 2020

        @Marilyn, I have more “privilege” than most white people in America, so you can say WHATEVER, FACTS 🤳🏽😂 I was talking to my mother about that…I’m one of the reasons white people are scared lmao…the dream they set out for themselves is my life! 💯 So it amuses me for the likes of you to call me anything but blessed…but keep on feeling like you can hide behind that screen name and type delusions! I think it’s only 7 black families that live in my neighborhood hunnie…not trying to ruin your day, so I’ll leave it at that 😂 Now, back to the FLAVOR lol

      • Fancy BISH September 26, 2020

        Ashy BISH still lives at home with Mommy LOL

      • Fancy BISH September 26, 2020

        @marilyn monh-O-E if you think that is an essay then you clearly need an education, you just keep on showing how stupid you really are Ashy BISH.

      • Fancy BISH September 26, 2020

        An@ ty g ay there was always a black and white Hawkman he would be reincarnated in a new body so I don’t care about that, people will get bored of black actors and it would fade out just look at the Emmys nobody watched it so soon they would stop catering to the ugly darkies.

      • Fancy BISH September 27, 2020

        @Fake BISH, you so obsessed with me and every word I say 🤣 Your momma don’t like you enough to want to talk to you I guess 🙄 💯 Stay struggling trying to make ends meet 😂 You’re always talking about McDonald’s WiFi, you ain’t fooling nobody…pinch those pennies gworl! And fyi, families with money are usually around each other and in contact, so you kinda revealed your struggle 😂 You got cut off like a light switch!🤳🏽

  7. 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(Money me daddy!!) September 25, 2020

    Oh ho no no no hunny! This is a Peter Pan movie not princess jasmine or frog princess…it’s hard to imagine they changed tinker bell To a Taco Bell 🔔 🤮🤮🤮🤮

    • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(Money me daddy!!) September 25, 2020

      STFU you illiterate w****. You don’t know shït 🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻💁🏼‍♀️💁🏼‍♀️💁🏼‍♀️🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻

  8. 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(Money me daddy!!) September 25, 2020

    TGJ has been infiltrated by racists, this is sad.

    • Fancy BISH September 26, 2020

      Clarkson Whitaker 😂 Clarkson can’t take reality so IT hides itself on a black blog typing nonsense and delusions wearing bin flip-flops and a MAGA hat 💯

  9. Shayla Queen 👑 September 26, 2020

    This is actually a nice way to add some diversity to the cast. You have Milla Jovovich’s daughter playing Wendy, why not have a black girl play Tinkerbell? As others have said, a fairy can be any race.

    I do think Disney should step their game up and give us a new black lead character in an original story through.

  10. Fancy BISH September 26, 2020

    See, here’s the THING…white people aren’t the only people that exist in this world 🌍 😂 It’s not just about black and white either…it’s about more people being able to see themselves or something more like themselves in these movies THEY’VE supported ALL THEIR LIVES and helped MAKE them a SUCCESS despite not seeing a damn ONE person of COLOR or any representation in MAIN roles on the SCREEN 💯 So to all the naysayers…go POP in one of the COUNTLESS MOVIES that Hollywood has already made that are white as the snow! How many can you watch? Put it this way…you’ll never run out of movies to choose from 🤣

    • Shayla Queen 👑 September 26, 2020

      Children ESPECIALLY need to see themselves represented from an early age to feel comfortable in their skin. It’s simple logic 💯 So I agree with you. Maybe Hell has frozen over, Fancy BISH? 😂

      • Fancy BISH September 26, 2020

        lol ✅ 💯

  11. Shayla Queen 👑 September 26, 2020

    These are classic fairy tales that we all know, love and learn from an early age so to add more diversity to these particular movies can only be a good thing. If not even just to see people of all races mixing together in a positive way. It can only bring more unity and help to bridge the gap of division that so many seem to want these days.

    • Shayla Queen 👑 September 26, 2020

      *for children to see

    vary good

  13. Slick September 27, 2020

    I don’t care a rats ass about thinker bell so it’s coo. However I would appreciate if Hollywood would hire some new talent and create some NEW characters instead changing the color or race of an existing character that’s already been established as white. Example…I would hate to see Superman or batman cast by a person of color. Create a new bad ass character on the same par.
