Brittany Murphy is voice of Disney’s Tinker Bell

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The Walt Disney Co on Tuesday said
"Just Married" actress Brittany Murphy will provide the voice
for the fairy Tinker Bell in an upcoming animated film, the
first in the new Disney Fairies line.

Murphy, 28, provides the voice for the character Luanne
Platter on the animated TV show "King of the Hill." Her voice
will be the first ever to emanate from the mouth of Peter Pan's
feisty sidekick in a Disney animated film. The direct-to-video
film is due out in 2007.

Disney's Fairy franchise rolled out last fall and follows
on the success of the company's Princess line, which has
grossed $3 billion in fiscal 2005.
