  • Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure (fall 2009)
  • Tinker Bell: A Midsummer Storm (working title, summer 2010)
  • Tinker Bell: A Winter Story (working title, summer 2011)

The movie saw an exclusive theatrical release at the El Capitan Theatre between September 19 and October 2nd. It will also premiere on Disney Channel in November as part of "New in November."
