Disney Fairies franchise. She is a light talent fairy with an African appearance and is often the first to voice discomfort about Tinker Bell not wanting to accept her job as a tinker.
She is voiced by Raven-Symoné.
In an early interview with Raven-Symoné for the original Tinker Bell film, she noted that the role of Iridessa was given to her when she was eighteen. She also noted that when she first approached the character, she gave the character a very high-pitched stereotypical fairy voice. The filmmakers suggested that she simply use her natural voice, which gave the light fairy a more realistic outlook. She has the mop of hair since the talent fairy.
Iridessa, one of the most talented light fairies, is a detail-oriented perfectionist. She’s passionate about her work, but can also be a worrywart, even when she tries to see the bright side of things, but often smells disaster. It can take some convincing to get her to go along with a risky or dangerous plan (a stubbornness that Tink certainly has too). In the end she will do anything to help a friend.
