She's "tinkering" around again!!!
14 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Secret Of The Wings continues the story of the Tinkerbell series, with voice overs provided by Lucy Lui and Timothy Dalton. The story concentrates strongly on Tinkerbell's curiosity of what is on the other side of Never Never Land, which is where the warm fairies are forbidden to go. Sure makes sense, because it's pretty frosty on the other side, it's a wonder why Tinkerbell even wants to go there. She steps on the other side just for a few seconds, and her wings begin to sparkle. She wants to know why, and her quest takes her on a journey to the other side, where she is forbidden to go. (Can't tell this fairy no, but you can sure try!). Answers are quickly answered, and she discovers much more then she imagined possible. The computer animation dazzles you with some great effects and powerful imagery, where the other three Tinkerbell movies failed. Although the story line suffers a bit, it's quite a trade off to see something of Tinkerbell that you've never seen before. Great family movie and fun for all.
