DISNEY CHANNEL TO PREMIERE "PIXIE HOLLOW GAMES," A NEW DISNEY FAIRIES ANIMATED SPECIAL STARRING BRENDA SONG, JASON DOLLEY, TIFFANY THORNTON AND ZENDAYA

Special Appearance by Tinker Bell and Members of the Cast at Disney's D23 Expo

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.

Disney Fairies is a franchise built around one of Disney's most famous and beloved characters, Tinker Bell, her fairy friends (Fawn, Iridessa, Rosetta, Silvermist and Vidia), the power of pixie dust and the enchanted world of Pixie Hollow. Launched in 2005, the Disney Fairies franchise carries on Disney's rich heritage of children's storytelling across numerous lines of businesses including film, publishing, lifestyle merchandising (i.e., apparel, toys, electronics, home d�cor and stationery), games, internet, mobile-web and the parks, extending the fairy experiences into many girls' homes and touch points across the globe. To date, over 1,000 Disney Fairies and Tinker Bell books have been published in 57 countries and 33 languages (selling nearly 30 million copies); Over 7.5 million copies of Disney Fairies magazines have sold in 40 countries; and More than 20 territories across North America, Latin America, EMEA and Asia Pacific can now visit DisneyFairies.com to play games, download activities and/or take flight in the virtual world of Pixie Hollow (where there are 40.5 million Fairies created in Pixie Hollow). Furthermore, fans can meet and view the Disney Fairies at any of the Disney theme parks and Disney on Ice shows around the world. Following the great success of Walt Disney Pictures direct-to-video release of Tinker Bell on Blu-ray� and DVD in 2008, the company has since released two additional movies including Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure and Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue.

Disney Channel is a 24-hour kid-driven, family inclusive television network that taps into the world of kids and families through original series and movies. Currently available on basic cable in over 99 million U.S. homes and to millions of other viewers on Disney Channels around the world, Disney Channel is part of the Disney/ABC Television Group.
