Tinker Bell finds herself crossing into the Winter Woods. There she meets Periwinkle and together they find the magical powers that their wings obtain. They have to save the Pixie Tree from a dark winter, but something horrible happens to Tinker Bell, will the wing power fix it?
In the "Sneak Peak" on the previous Tinker Bell installment, this film is called "Tinker Bell and the Mysterious Winter Woods". See more »
When Periwinkle is re-visiting the past, high up in the air on the snow-flake pedestal, Lord Milori comes and joins her to tell her a tragic story of the past. It is later revealed that he cannot fly anymore, so he couldn't visit her there without aid. No such aid is visible. See more »
I did enjoy the previous Tinkerbell films, so I watched Tinkerbell and the Secret of the Wings knowing what to expect and hoping it would be as good as the others. And it was. From an adult standpoint, maybe the story is a touch too simplistic and some of the dialogue cheesy(and I have to admit I did find them so at times). This said, the story is also cute and charming with a well-intentioned message, and the main target audience I doubt are going to care too much about what the dialogue is like. Moving on to the many positives about Secret of the Wings, I'll start with the animation, which is really beautiful, full of colour and sparkle. I'd go as far to say that of the Tinkerbell movies, and all of them are well-animated in my opinion, Secret of the Wings is the loveliest from a visual standpoint. The soundtrack is sweet, breezy and unobtrusive, which suits the tone of the story very well. The characters are still likable and engaging, also ones that anybody in the right mindset will relate to. And that is instead of going around saying that it's for "little girls", an irritating stereotype that helps to give the Tinkerbell movies and others movies an undeservedly, I feel, bad rap. They are also very well voiced, Timothy Dalton and Anjelica Huston(the latter being one of my favourite actresses) both do great jobs and gives older audiences to the main target audience at least one reason to watch without prejudice. Overall, a charming and beautifully animated. 8/10 Bethany Cox
