Abstract:The 100-year trajectory of the mischievous Tinker Bell, from J.M Barrie’s 1904 play Peter Pan to the present-day Disney Fairies franchise, is a metanarrative of adaptation and remediation through which media and “childhood” can be seen to interrelate as mutually constitutive forces. With a focus on contemporary children’s media and narrative, this paper examines multiple incarnations of a media franchise at 50-year intervals. Our close-reading yields insights into the reflexive relationship between social constructions of childhood, the evolution of narrative in children’s literature, and the development of media for child audiences since the Edwardian era.
