Tinker Bell first came to life in J. M. Barrie’s play Peter Pan. In the play, she was just a common fairy. In 1953, that all changed. Disney animated Tinker Bell and turned her into the green pixie dust spreading fairy we all know and love. Disney’s animators nailed her character and movements thanks to the real life Tinker Bell, Margaret Kerry.
Kerry was the live action model who animators used as a reference. Tinker Bell was a non-verbal character in Peter Pan, so Kerry’s movements were an integral part of the story. Kerry spent six months pantomiming Tinker Bell’s movements using giant props to help.
