Disney Fairies is 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, Disney Fairies carries on Disney's rich heritage of children's storytelling across numerous lines of businesses including film, publishing, lifestyle, 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(TM) 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.
