Tom Hiddleston in Disney's 'The Pirate Fairy': Watch him sing as a young Captain Hook -- VIDEO

Before the hook, James was just a two-handed cabin boy on a pirate ship in Neverland when he met a fairy named Zarina. And now he wants to sing about it!

Tom Hiddleston (Loki in Marvel’s Thor and The Avengers) voices the young, future Captain in The Pirate Fairy, Disney’s upcoming straight-to-Blu-ray film out April 1. And now you can get your first listen of Loki’s impressive pipes.

The Pirate Fairy follows Tinkerbell (Mae Whitman) as she leads her fellow Pixie Hollow fairies to get back their stolen pixie dust taken by Zarina (Christina Hendricks). As many Disney movies have taught us before, pirates and fairies don’t really mix well and as expected, trouble ensues! Watch the musical sneak peek below: READ FULL STORY

First clip from 'The Pirate Fairy': Christina Hendricks is mixing something magical -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

What if Joan Holloway Harris morphed into a spunky brunette fairy? Well, she’d sound something like Never Land resident Zarina — a winged dust-keeper voiced by Mad Men star Christina Hendricks.

Zarina is the star of Disney’s upcoming straight-to-Blu-ray film The Pirate Fairy, which follows the titular sprite’s adventures after she decides to ditch Pixie Hollow for a pirate ship — and gets to know a two-handed cabin boy named James who will one day be known as Captain Hook. Also: He’s voiced by Tom Hiddleston. It’s like the Internet wrote this movie.

Catch your first glimpse at Zarina in action by watching this exclusive clip, in which Z shows Tinker Bell (Arrested Development‘s Mae Whitman) her mad dust-mixing skills. Bet she’d also make a killer fairy martini if pressed.


Mae Whitman talks Tinker Bell, 'Parenthood' romance possibilities, and chances of Bland Ann being back for 'Arrested Development'


There are millions of adults who recognize Mae Whitman from her roles on TV (Parenthood, Arrested Development) or in movies (The Perks of Being a Wallflower). But there are also millions of young fans who know her voice, adore her, and may have no any idea what she looks like thanks to her popular alter ego Tinker Bell of the Disney movie franchise. With the fifth movie Tinker Bell and the Secret of the Wings out next week (10/23), we caught up with the busy fairy… er, Whitman.

“I love playing Tinker Bell. She’s great. So smart and independent and funny,” says Whitman. “I’m so happy and excited that I get to play someone like her. She’s a great role model.”
