The Los Angeles Times confirms a Jim Hill Media report published Monday, which speculated that Disney’s direct-to-video spinoff Tinker Bell may be experiencing some story problems. According to the Times, Pixar executives John Lasseter and Ed Catmull decided that the project’s script remains in need of “substantial work.” In addition, there is some concern that Tinker Bell lacks appeal for older girls. Thus, the film may not see a release until at least 2008. Thanks to “ShyViolet” at the Animated News & Views Forum for the heads up on this news.
