So since Disney Channel is airing a TinkerBell movie marathon all this week, I started thinking about what Disney Toon is going to do after the TinkerBell franchise ends. It’s already been announced that the next film, TinkerBell & The NeverBeast, will be the final film due to low sales, and I really hope they don’t just concentrate all their efforts on what I’m sure will be the never-ending Planes franchise.
and then I got an idea.
What if, once TinkerBell is done, they adapt the WaterFire saga into direct to DVD films? Early reviewers are saying it’s basically just underwater Sailor Moon or Winx Club,
which I always thought Disney pretty much ripped off to make the Disney Fairies brand, so it would be a perfect franchise. I doubt a series about mermaids is going to do well enough to warrant a big budget live action film franchise, but it could make an awesome series of animated films, especially one that fills the hole left by TinkerBell.
