I am very lucky to have two little girls that are very close sisters. We receive so many compliments about how wonderful and caring they are with each other (good thing these people don’t see them at home fighting over clothing, jewelry television shows and anything else they can think of). But one thing these two did agree on was that they just couldn’t wait to see the new Disney movie “Tinker Bell and the Secret of the Fairy Wings.”
A recap . . . I will try to avoid too many spoilers
Tinker Bell and her friends are preparing for the winter and as usual Tinker Bell wants to know what it like in the Winter Woods, especially since Lord Milori has declared that no one can enter unless you are a winter fairy, and so our adventure begins.
Arriving in the winter woods after creating her very own winter wear and hitching a ride with the snow owls, Tink sneaks around until she discovers Periwinkle. Periwinkle and Tinker Bell are sisters, born of the same baby’s laugh. Their wings give them away as they are a perfect match that light up magically and sparkle when joined together.
Enjoy this sneak peak . . .
Tinker Bell and her friends try to create the perfect winter day so that Periwinkle can visit them, but it is a day gone from bad to worse as their contraption can’t keep Periwinkle cold enough. Rushing her back to the winter woods, Lord Milori greets them with less than a warm welcome and their ice “cream” wagon takes a trip down the river where it becomes stuck.
Now the Pixie Dust tree is in danger as are all the fairies, and their world is covered in ice and snow. Rules were made to be broken and the winter fairies find a way to help their friends in their time of need.
What did we like about Secret of the Wings?
The girls loved that Tinker Bell had a sister – just like them! We also really enjoyed some brand new characters as well as some familiar favorites (Rosetta is just so cute – well “bust my bonnet!”) They also laughed out loud at Rosetta falling for a Winter Woods fairy and him falling pretty hard for her too. Queen Clarion may even find a way to her own “happily ever after.” The girls laughed so much as they enjoyed both the trouble that Tinker Bell gets into as she uses lost things to tinker as well loved the adventures of the two sisters in the winter woods, especially since much like Tinker Bell they rarely encounter snow, cold, ice or frost.
Some technical details
There are some easily recognized and remembered voice talents such as Timothy Dalton, Lucy Hale, Angelica Huston, Jesse McCartney, Mae Whitman, Lucy Liu, Raven Symone and Debbie Ryan.
The artwork was brilliant, especially providing some extra sparkle to the snow and the wings.
We of course enjoyed the story of the sisters and their budding friendship. It was really “cool” (no pun intended) how they also managed to still include their friends at play and work even though they had each other. Some nice morals to the story in the movie if you feel so inclined to look for them and I admit it was fun to see my girls walk out holding hands and saying they were BSF’s – best sisters forever.
We saw the movie during a special screening in the theater- but I can tell you that my next Amazon purchase includes the DVD of “Secret of the Wings.” It is definitely a movie they (and yes even mom) will watch over and over again.
