Long before meeting Peter Pan and his Lost Boys, the islands of Never Land were already the home of adventure. The lands of Pixie Hollow Tinkerbell and her fairy friends notice a bright green comet flash across the sky one night. According to deep legend, when the comet is seen, the dreaded NeverBeast will arrive in Pixie Hollow. All the fairies are terrified, and preparing to defend their home from the monster, when Fawn (Ginnifer Goodwin) stumbles across the beast accidentally. Realising that the NeverBeast is not nearly as bad as anyone thinks, Fawn must convince her friends that they shouldn't judge a book by it's cover before it's too late and they do something they'll regret.
Raven-Symoné explained to Oprah Winfrey how she managed to avoid becoming a clichéd child star. But could her comments be directed at her former roommate Lindsay Lohan?
Raven-Symoné has little sympathy for her fellow child stars who have gone off the rails. In a recent interview with Oprah Winfrey on Where Are They Now?, the 28-year-old actress discussed how she had managed to stay on track despite achieving stardom at a very early age.

Pixie Hollow fairy friends Tinker Bell, Vidia, Iridessa, Fawn, Silvermist and Rosetta are all blessed with a unique talent to manipulate certain areas of nature. During an ice show, they discover that estranged fairy Zarina is responsible for the poppy decorations which send all the guests to sleep allowing her to steal the Blue Pixie Dust for her pirate friends at Skull Rock. Tink and the others must get the Dust back as soon as possible as it is essential in their ability to fly, but when they manage to anger Zarina by approaching her, they find that all their talents have been swapped between them. Struggling to control their new found powers, they must continue their quest to retrieve the Pixie Dust for when the rest of Pixie Hollow awaken - but that all proves to be easier said than done as time is quickly running out.
Raven Symone may have revealed she is gay by commenting on more US states legalizing gay marriage. Her remark on Twitter in support of the proposed legislation has sparked speculation regarding the 27-year-old's sexual orientation.
Raven Symone may have tentatively revealed she is gay following news that more US states are legalizing gay marriage. The actress for the first time has indicated she is a lesbian by tweeting on Friday "I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you."

Following her tweet, her representatives said ""Raven is not getting married. She was just supporting the fact that she heard on NPR that more states legalized gay marriage today."
No wedding bells in Symone's future.
This week The Cosby Show star Raven-Symone once again managed to cause some uproar on Twitter with a status praising recent advances for equal rights in America. The tweet read: "I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you.”
Raven-Symone celebrated recent advances for equal rights.
It didn’t really clarify what Raven was talking about, but with the Supreme Court rejecting DOMA back in June and Minnesota becoming the latest state to legalize gay marriage this week, there is certainly plenty of good news for Raven to celebrate. Her own marriage plans, however, were not one of those things, as the star was quick to clarify.

The actress thanked Washington D.C. this week for "finally" giving her to chance to get married
Raven Symone was particularly happy this Friday (2 August) and seemed to have wedding bells on her mind when she tweeted; "I can finally get married! Yay government!" - a seemingly glaring nod towards the Supreme Court's June decision to overturn The Defense of Marriage Act. The actress didn't elaborate any further with her tweet, although she did re-tweet a couple of messages from her fans, ones that apparently praise the 27-year-old for coming out of the closet.
"Can I have your spot in the Cheetah Girls? Disney might not like you anymore," wrote one re-tweeted follower, with another replying to a fan who asked whether this was Raven's coming out message; "She been out, momma just didn't have time for bullshit. and I LIVVVEEE "@_BeatrixKiddoo: You better come out sis."
Was the tweet a tacit confirmation?
Has Raven-Symone come out of the closet? That seems to be the case, though as usual, the extremely private and social media savvy star didn’t give any statements outright. On August 2nd, she simply tweeted: "I can finally get married! Yay government! So proud of you." She seemed to be addressing the Supreme Court and their decision to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act, though that happened way back in June.
The actress has never actively denied her orientation.
Nevertheless, lesbian or not, the 27-year-old star of The Cosby Show and later That’s So Raven, has always had an admirable attitude about her personal life and her sexual orientation in particular. When rumors surfaced last year in May that Raven was gay and living together with her girlfriend, AzMarie Livingston, Symone handled them with surprising grace and confidence. "I'm living my PERSONAL life the way I'm happiest. I'm not one, in my 25 year career to disclose who I'm dating," she wrote on Twitter. "And I shall not start now."
