Iconic fairy will appear in a Disney Junior special on Sept. 29
The Disney Junior series "Jake and the Never Land Pirates" is getting its own special, and it's bringing a special guest for the occasion.
"Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Never Land Rescue" will premiere Sept. 29 on Disney Channel and Disney Junior (at 6 and 7 p.m., respectively), marking the first appearance of Tinker Bell in Disney Junior's "Jake and the Never Land Pirates" series.
And Tinker Bell won't be the only special appearance of the evening; following the show, Disney Junior and Disney Channel will air the animated short "Mama Hook Knows Best."
Featuring Sharon Osbourne as the voice of Captain Hook's exuberant mother, the short film will feature Mama Hook offering her son advice on being a good pirate.
The special itself will find young pirate Jake on his most heroic adventure ever, as he attempts to save Never Land from extinction. The iconic Tink will also make her first "Never Land Pirates" appearance in the special, as she guides Jake on his quest.
"In 'Jake and the Never Land Pirates: Never Land Rescue,' the magic of Never Land begins to disappear just as the ancient Forever Tree seems to be fading away," as Disney describes the special. "After a mysterious figure known as 'The Guardian' arrives to explain that only the pirate who truly believes in himself can save Never Land from vanishing completely, Jake must break off from the rest of his crew and go alone on a mission to save the Forever Tree, the source of magic throughout all of Never Land."
