    Tinkerbell Movie straight to DVD?

    Hi all!! Does anyone know why the Tinkerbell Movie is coming straight to DVD and not to theatres? I would have loved to have been able to take my daughter to see this on the "Big-Screen", and then would have also bought the DVD later!

    Just wondering!

    Thanks so much!

    Simple answer is money. Disney will make a ton of money on Tinkerbell without a movie theater version. Also, while I don't know the length of the DVD I would guess there is not than much material about Tink's childhood to make a full-length movie.

    There will be three more Tinker Bell movies released over the next few years. I beleive the producer said the last one would be released in 2010, but doesn't work out to 1 a year, so I must not have remembered the year correctly.

    I'm sure that they were, I was just wondering why! Glad to see that there will more than one. My daughter screamed when she saw the commercial for the first time, this could be her new favorite movie.
