Secret of the Wings - Film Review
The girls and I were invited to a preview of "Secret of the Wings", coming out on DVD and BluRay on October 23rd. Miss E. loves Tinkerbell - I tried to keep it a surprise but she immediately asked if it was "Secret of the Wings" when I told her I was taking her to a movie. She badgered me until I caved and admitted that yes, this WAS the movie we were going to see.
The film was very cute - it opened with the normal fairy characters. ( If you want to learn more about the fairies - click here). The premise of Secret of the Wings is that there are two lands in which Fairies exist - one where it is warm and is occupied by Spring Fairies and one where it is cold and is occupied by Winter Fairies. The Spring Fairies cannot visit Winter Fairies and vice versa - each fairy must remain in his or her own side. Tinkerbell questions the rule but is reminded that it is for their safety.
When it is time, the Spring Fairies help the animals cross the river to move from Spring / Summer to Winter. The animals immediately adapt to the change in temperature whereas the fairies cannot. While helping the animals cross, Tinkerbell feels funny and realizes that her wings light up and sparkle. This sets her on a quest to find out why - a quest that leads her into forbidden territory
This is a cute movie for little girls - a little predictable but it is very cute. We loved the introduction of the new characters, especially Periwinkle, who has a very special connection to Tink. There was one library scene that I thought tended to stereotype but other than that I found the movie to be enjoyable, family oriented and amusing. I would purchase this for my DD.
With the holidays coming up, this would make a great gift for the Tinkerbell Fan in your life. For a fun Secret of the Wings snowball fight game that you could play with your favorite little girl click visit Disney.com and for a sneak peek at the movie, feel free to view the clip below:
