Another fairy JJJ just can’t get enough of is Iridessa, the light fairy.
Voiced by Raven Symone, 26, Iridessa plays an important part in the new Secret of the Wings as one of Tink’s amazing friends.
“I think with every Tinker Bell movie there’s a message about empowerment, that if you pick the right friends, and you have your family by your side, you can go as far as you want to, as long as you trust each other,” Raven shared in a recent Q&A. “Whatever Tinker Bell pulls her friends into, she knows that they have her back. So definitely, the message is about empowerment and friendship.”
Raven added about why so many young girls identify with Iridessa, “I think that depends on who they are…If you don’t connect with Iridessa you’ll connect with Rosetta or Fawn, because they all exude their own personal charisma. Iridessa is very straight to the point. She likes her I’s dotted and her T’s crossed. She’s a no nonsense type of girl. But at the same time she can let loose and have fun with the rest of the girls.”

Matt Lanter suits up for the premiere of Secret of the Wings held at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13 theater on Saturday afternoon (October 20) in New York City.
The 29-year-old actor, who voices Sled in the upcoming film, was joined by fiance Angela Stacy and co-star Raven Symone, who’s the voice of Iridessa.
In the new flick, Tinker Bell (Mae Whitman) and her fairy friends travel into the forbidden world of the mysterious Winter Woods, where curiosity and adventure lead Tink to an amazing discovery and reveal a magical secret that could change her world forever.
“I have plans for my personal life and I have plans for my career,” Raven tells the mag. “I just know that there’s more to life. I’m not curing cancer, those people are way more important than I—I’m just here to make you smile.”

Raven recently put the brakes on speculation that she was dating America’s Next Top Model contestant AzMarie Livingston.
“My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I’m datings to know. I’m not one for a public display of my life,” Raven tweeted. “However that is my right as a HUMAN BEing whether straight or gay. To tell or not to tell. As long as I’m not harming anyone.”
Raven Symone literally sparkles on stage in this new, exclusive clip from Sister Act!
The 26-year-old actress joins the superfluity of dazzling nuns on stage to sing “Spread The Love Around.”
“I don’t know?” Raven told BroadwayWorld about her Broadway dreams. “That sounds really crazy, but I say that in a question because I’ve always wanted to do a musical that I grew up with, like Mary Poppins or Funny Girl. Now I get to do it, but on a stage and not in front of a camera, so I get the same satisfaction.”
