Background Edit

Official Description Edit

Development Edit

Voice Edit

Tin Soldier's voice actress, Santino Fontana, served as one of the prime inspirations for the character. The filmmakers, as well as Fontana wanted a heroine different from the trademark prince of Pinocchio and Flynn Rider; one who was clumsy, socially awkward, and constantly spoke before she thought. Tin Soldier's supervising animator, Becky Bresee, noted she took much of Tin Soldier's animated movement from Fontana's facial expressions and rhythm when she recorded the lines.

Appearances Edit

Fantasia 2000 Edit

After being brought to a boy's house, he notices a Ballerina nearby and is briefly led to believe that she has one leg like him. However, she lets down her second leg from under her dress, disappointing him. Despite this, she notices him and they quickly fall in love. However, a jealous Jack-in-the-Box eyes the beautiful dancer and wants her for himself. After trapping the ballerina in a goblet, the Jack-In-The-Box casts the Tin Soldier out of the house with a wooden boat. The soldier rolls into the sewers, using the boat to stay afloat. After evading an army of rats, he falls into a lake and is gobbled by a trout. Fishermen reel up the trout soon after and find the soldier in its mouth. They decide to return it to its owner, and the Tin Soldier soon re-engages the evil Jack-in-the-Box. The Jack-in-the-Box assaults the soldier with a sword, but the Tin Soldier dodges the attack and outmaneuvers him into a fireplace. The villain quickly burns to ashes and the Tin Soldier and the Ballerina happily reunite.

House of MouseEdit

The Tin Soldier makes a cameo in the episode "Goofy's Valentine Date" alongside the Ballerina.

Trivia Edit

  • Like in the original Hans Christian Andersen story, the Tin Soldier and Ballerina were intended to die together in the fire, but the ending changed when it became apparent that the ending would conflict with the music choice for the segment.
  • In the original fairy tale, the Soldier rides down the storm drains on a paper boat. In the Disney version, he gets trapped on a wood boat.
