Disneytoon Studios has a new addition to the cast of “The Pirate Fairy” as the multi-talented Carlos Ponce (actor, singer, composer) has been added to fill the shoes of Bonito, a very large but sensitive pirate. As you can imagine by the image seen above, Bonito is very strong and can throw a harpoon over a hundred yards. His strength serves him well as a rigger alongside James and Zarina in the film. Bonito has another side and is quite passionate about sewing, not only the ship’s sails, but also applying dainty double-stitched seams to his fairy captain’s tiny outfits.
“The Pirate Fairy” is a new adventure about an ambitious, but misunderstood dust-keeper fairy who joins forces with a band of pirates and will be available on April 1, 2014.
