Share via emailSubmit to StumbleUponShare on TumblrSubmit to reddit

DisneyToon Studios is pleased to announce that Ginnifer Goodwin (“Once Upon a Time”) will voice the character Fawn in the new Disney Fairies adventure, “Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast”.

“Fawn is a character who loves all animals unconditionally,” said director Steve Loter. “She will help any animal that needs her, but sometimes Fawn thinks too impulsively, when she should be thinking with her head, as well as her heart.”

Loter says there’s a lot of Goodwin in the character. “Fawn was inspired by my daughter and her unconditional love of animals,” he said. “But Ginnifer had a very strong hand in crafting the character. Her sense of fun and her wondrous view of the world gave Fawn direction. You can hear the smile in Ginnifer’s voice—this is a character that loves life and lives it to its fullest.”

About ‘”Gruff”:
The heartwarming story explores the ancient myth of a mysterious creature whose distant roar sparks the curiosity of Tinker Bell’s friend Fawn, an animal fairy who’s not afraid to break the rules to rescue the NeverBeast before time runs out. The fairies meet Gruff who is a massive creature and the subject of an ancient Pixie Hollow myth. Hidden in a dark lair on the fringes of the fairies’ beloved home, Gruff is discovered by curious and empathetic animal fairy Fawn, who sees something special in his glowing green eyes. His penchant for stacking rocks mystifies Fawn and her friends—but Gruff’s true purpose is the real surprise.

The film, releasing in-home March 3, 2015, also features the voices of Mae Whitman (Tinker Bell), Megan Hilty (Rosetta), Lucy Liu (Silvermist), Raven Symone (Iridessa), Anjelica Huston (Queen Clarion) and is directed by Steve Loter (“Kim Possible”) and produced by Makul Wigert (“Secret of the Wings”).

Previously, Fawn had been voiced by America Ferrera and Angela Bartys.

Marcy Lefkovitz has been promoted to Vice President, Technology and Workflow Strategy for ABC Broadcast Operations and Engineering. The announcement was made today by Todd Donovan, Senior Vice President, Broadcast Operations and Engineering for the ABC Television Network, to whom she will report.

Ms. Lefkovitz, a 20-year-veteran of ABC News, was previously Director of News Production there, where she was responsible for new technologies, workflow development, and training. In this role, she helped ensure smooth transitions to the use of non-linear editing, shared storage and asset management, journalist field news gathering, digital archive, and control room automation. She was also deeply involved in the creation of the Miami facility used to launch ABC’s joint venture with Univision, Fusion.

“Our new Technology and Workflow Strategy group will reinvigorate BO&E’s effort to identify and acquire the most promising new technologies and integrate them strategically across the ABC Television Network,” said Mr. Donovan. “Marcy’s vast expertise as an editor and producer at ABC News make her the perfect choice to head this new unit.”

Ms. Lefkovitz began her journalism career at ABC in 1987 as a researcher in the Political Unit assigned to the 1988 Presidential election.

After the election, she spent six years, from 1989-1994, as an independent documentary producer for Bolthead Communications, Globalvision and OMI. During that time, she worked on several award-winning projects for A&E, including a 26-part series called “Heroes,” as well as “Biography: James Cagney.” Other projects include 10 one-hour shows, “A History of the 80s,” which was broadcast on The History Channel, a series for PBS on human rights issues, “Rights and Wrongs,” and a film for PBS shot in Czechoslovakia, “The Journey of Butterfly.”

Lefkovitz returned to ABC News in 1994 as an editor for “Turning Point” and “The Century.” In 1998 she joined the staff of World News Tonight, first as an editor from 1994-2002 and then as a producer. While at World News Tonight, she edited segments for award-winning shows, including Bob Brown’s “Millennium”coverage, Ronald Reagan’s funeral and the Gulf Wars. She was named director of news production in 2007.

Lefkovitz graduated from Brown University with honors in Semiotics and received her Master’s degree in Broadcast Journalism from NYU.
