Movie Review: Find out the secret of Tinker Bell’s wings in the latest Disney Fairies release

The fourth Tinker Bell movie is now available on DVD and in 3D on Blu-Ray, a first for the Disney Fairies franchise. Secret of the Wings is a cute, funny tale that could have easily been a hit in theaters, had it not been a home movie release.

Although viewers won’t find out the true secret of the wings until the end of the movie, I’ll give a minor spoiler warning right here. There’s another secret that even Tinker Bell didn’t know about that is a major part of the plot. So stop now if you want to be totally surprised.

Tinker Bell is not only a tinkerer, she also is very curious and that often gets her in trouble. That’s the case when she journeys into the Winter Fairy’s domain – a no-no in fairy world. She heads to this cold land to find The Keeper, the author of a book about fairy wings to find out why her wings were recently glowing. Tinker Bell not only finds The Keeper, she also finds something she didn’t know she had – a twin sister.

The rest of the movie has Tinker Bell and her new found sister, Periwinkle, exploring each other’s worlds and trying to find a way to unit them and stay together.

The voice acting is spot on, the visuals are great (get the 3D version if you have a 3D TV) and the music fits well. This movie isn’t just for little girls. Everyone in the family will enjoy it. (Adults may recognize The Keeper’s voice as a great imitation of Tim Conway’s Mr. Tudball on The Carol Burnett Show.)

“Secret of the Wings” voice cast includes Academy Award-Winner Anjelica Huston (TV’s ‘Smash’), Timothy Dalton (TV’s ‘Chuck’, The Living Daylights), Lucy Liu (TV’s ‘Southland’, Charlie’s Angels), Raven-Symoné (TV’s ‘That’s So Raven’), Megan Hilty (TV’s ‘Smash’), Pamela Adlon (TV’s ‘Californication’), Matt Lanter (TV’s ‘90210’), Debby Ryan (TV’s ‘Jesse’) and Mae Whitman (TV’s ‘Parenthood’), and Periwinkle, voiced by Lucy Hale (TV’s ‘Pretty Little Liars’). A DisneyToon Studios production, the film is directed by Peggy Holmes, co-directed by Bobs Gannaway, and produced by Michael Wigert. John Lasseter serves as executive producer.
