D23 Expo: Tom Hiddleston Is Young Captain Hook In Disneytoon Studios’ ‘The Pirate Fairy’

Tom Hiddleston fans, get ready for seeing – or rather hearing – The Avengers star like never before… as the voice of a young Captain James Hook. The announcement was made during the mega animation presentation today at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA.

The talented actor will provide the voice of James, a cabin boy, who eventually ends up being Captain Hook in the new Disneytoon Studios’ Disney Fairies animated film The Pirate Fairy. Mad Men star Christina Hendricks will voice Zarina, a fairy who leaves Pixie Hollow and heads off to Never Land, befriending pirates like James along the way.

Hiddleston drew among the loudest and most passionate applause – especially from fangirls – at the entire three-hour event, which was filled with many other major announcements. He said he has loved Disney from a very young age, considering Baloo from The Jungle Book a “spiritual godfather.” When Hiddleston mentioned he used to sing the classic “Bare Necessities” tune, the crowd encouraged him to belt out the ditty.

Though this Tinker Bell-themed movie presents nothing new to the direct-to-video blueprint, I must admit that this “flitterrific” film offers pleasant amusement. Let’s fly right into this review.
