Natasha Bedingfield Shares Life Lessons from The Pirate Fairy + Full Song
Pixie dust, switched talents, furtive alchemy, skullduggery on the high seas — all that and more is part of a new Disney movie set in the world of Peter Pan.
Called The Pirate Fairy, the film will set sail on Blu-ray and DVD April 1, with global pop star Natasha Bedingfield lending her voice to the title track, “Who I Am,” along with a second song called “Weightless.”
The British-born Grammy-nominated chanteuse has recorded what is arguably the most memorable — and danceable — pop music ever (“Unwritten” is my totem), making the opportunity to sit down with her to talk fairies and singing and life lessons and her childhood love of Disney movies (she can sing the lyrics to every single Disney song) that much more exciting.
Getting on board with the film was easy for Bedingfield. She says: “… They approached me to sing and I of course said ‘yes.’ I think Disney has had a very high standard of music from the start. It’s real music with orchestras and popular singers.”
What’s more, Bedingfield identifies with fairies, mainly because of their feisty personalities and ethereal sense of style. “They’re mystical and a lovely idea,” she says. “And I love that Disney heroines are cheeky when facing a challenge. You can’t have an adventure without things going wrong. There has to be something to conquer, something to pull out the good in you. You have to have challenges or life would be a boring story.”
“We’re all discovering who we are,” she says of what she feels is the major life lesson from the movie. “Zarina’s born into a certain structure and way of doing things, and she just finds herself being quite different. She’s inquisitive, she’s very smart, she doesn’t really fit in, and I think a lot of people relate to that.”
“Then she goes on her journey and she makes mistakes and she hurts the people she loves, but she comes around, and through the grace of the people around her who are also learning through her experience, it shows that progression,” she says. “Through finding ourselves and loving ourselves and the people around us we can all grow.”
“One of the reasons I did the movie, aside from loving Disney, is because of my nieces. I wanted to be in something they would see and take them to the premiere. I’d love to do more movies in general,” she adds. “I love making movies and I think it would be fun to do a whole soundtrack. Or a character!”
Well, the rest is still unwritten.

INTERVIEW: Natasha Bedingfield urges girls to “love your body”
The Pirate Fairy focuses on a perky dust-keeper fairy named Zarina who likes to think for herself and ends up causing all kinds of trouble. Natasha Bedingfield sings Zarina’s inner thoughts and emotions. We asked Bedingfield to tell us about this dynamic character.
“Zarina is a fairy that’s grown up with other fairies but finds out that she’s different. She asks questions and doesn’t really fit into the mold of the way fairies are supposed to behave. The story is about her finding herself.”
The song she sings in the movie is called “Who I Am.” “It’s all about being free to find out who you are. I quite like doing this character, I feel like I relate to her. I never really felt like I fit into the mold,” she said.
We asked Bedingfield if she could share an instance where she felt awkward or out of place in her own life.
‘I felt like that growing up because I was homeschooled for a few years and that was a very odd thing to do in England, particularly. But it really works for me now in the pop industry because I write songs that appeal to people but they’re not typical. Sometimes, you don’t fit in with everyone else, but it ends up being to your benefit.”
The Pirate Fairy also features Tinker Bell and other characters from Peter Pan, only they’re much younger in this Peter Pan-origin story that explains how many of the characters, like Captain Hook, came to be.
“There’s little clues in it when you’re watching, [and] you’ll go, ‘Oh, wow, that’s how that happened.’ You meet the crocodile which ends up being the adult crocodile who chases Hook. In this movie he’s just a baby.”
As for growing up with Disney films, the singer said, “I really loved Dumbo. I didn’t have big ears, though I liked him anyway.”
But in terms of which Disney characters she most related to, she said, “It would have been all the princesses. Disney princesses are always a little bit rebellious, a little bit outside of the box, they often have tragedy in their life and they work out how to overcome it.”
Being part of a Disney movie means that a lot of little girls will be looking up to Bedingfield. We asked her if she had a message for these young ladies.
“It’s important to love your body. You are perfect because you are you. We’re given the body that we are born with, so you’ve got to learn to love it,” she said. Very good advice.
Natasha Bedingfield is currently working on a new album, set to release later this year.
