Disney Channel Announces “Pixie Hollow Games” Animated Special

Production is underway on Pixie Hollow Games, an all-new, animated special to premiere this fall on Disney Channel. The special, which is part of the hugely successful Disney Fairies franchise, features a talented voice cast of Disney Channel stars including Brenda Song (The Suite Life on Deck), Jason Dolley (Good Luck Charlie), Tiffany Thornton (So Random!) and Zendaya (Shake It Up) as the new fairies and sparrow man who join Tinker Bell and her fairy friends to participate in the legendary Pixie Hollow Games. Megan Hilty (NBC’s upcoming musical series Smash) also stars as Rosetta.

The special is executive-produced by Academy Award winner John Lasseter (Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story and Cars franchises) and directed by Bradley Raymond (Tinker Bell).

During Disney’s D23 fan expo in Anaheim this week, Tinker Bell, joined by Disney Channel stars Brenda Song, Jason Dolley and Tiffany Thornton, will make a special appearance at the Walt Disney Studios Animation Pavilion on FRIDAY, AUGUST 19 at 4:00 p.m. On SATURDAY, AUGUST 20 from 1:30 — 2:30 p.m., “Pixie Hollow Games” producer Helen Kalafatic and director Bradley Raymond will be meeting fans and talking about the new animated special on the expo floor in front of the Disney Fairies booth.

In Pixie Hollow Games, all of the fairies and sparrow men in Pixie Hollow gather for the legendary three-day Olympic-style competition event, which culminates with one fairy guild being named champion of the Games. Determined not to let the garden fairies’ unfortunate history of not performing well at the Games get to her, newcomer Chloe (voiced by Brenda Song) works to convince all of the other garden fairies, which includes her teammate Rosetta (voiced by Megan Hilty) and the pragmatic Fern (voiced by Zendaya), that they must work together and dig down deep to break their well-known losing streak. Along the way, the reigning champion storm fairies, including Rumble (voiced by Jason Dolley) and Glimmer (voiced by Tiffany Thornton), continue to intimidate and outperform their competitors, but with Chloe’s spirited determination, they are forced to work harder than ever before.

The virtual world of Pixie Hollow will host and celebrate the Games with the “How Will You Train?” art contest. The contest, which runs from August 16 — September 6, invites Disney Fairies fans to draw and share how they will train for the Pixie Hollow Games, with the grand prize winner receiving the ultimate viewing party kit. The kit includes everything needed to enjoy the Pixie Hollow Games premiere on Disney Channel, including a TV, Blu-ray/DVD player, a Tinker Bell DVD collection, party supplies, and more. To enter the “How Will You Train?” art contest, fans can submit their art either by U.S. Mail or by Internet via http://pixiehollow.go.com/contests_home.html.
