Two worlds. One magical secret.

Disney's fourth CG-animated Tinker Bell movie, following Tink (based on the character from J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan books) and her fairy friends who live in the wee land of Pixie Hollow. More

When her wings begin to glow, Tinker Bell breaks the rules and secretly journeys into the Winter Woods. There, she hopes to find The Keeper, the mysterious author of fairy lore who may know the secret of the wings. This leads her to a discovery: her long-lost sister Periwinkle. The voice cast includes Anjelica Huston as Queen Clarion, Mae Whitman as Tinker, and Timothy Dalton as Lord Milori. Hide

I don’t often connect with my inner five-year-old girl (though she freakin’ loved Katy Perry: Part of Me 3D), so I can’t claim to be an educated devotee to this modern Tinker Bell franchise. Disney knows how to cater to their young female demographic, and sure enough, it only takes five minutes before you’re introduced to the most adorable bunny rabbit you will ever see. More

Everything is played fairly low-key, from the scale of the story to the this-is-clearly-not-Pixar quality animation. But the film wisely compliments its limitations instead of trying to go beyond them: the adventure doesn’t finger-wag with tired life lessons or deep themes, the jokes are simple but avoid stupidity, the world is small but buzzes with a colourful vibrancy that would hold anyone’s attention.

The addition of the winter world opens the creative palette up for a number of vivid side characters, from Tinker Bell’s snowy doppelganger Periwinkle to the dominant Lord Milori voiced by Timothy Dalton (not kidding). There’s an easy likeability to the new fairy designs, though Tink’s group of fairy BFFs lack distinction in comparison. Still, I was grateful not to have seen Sassy Ghetto Fairy or Bieber Bell in the mix.

I applaud Secret of the Wings for being more than an average straight-to-video film, though it doesn’t quite justify a cinematic release. It’s an inoffensive light fantasy adventure that will serve your daughter well, just not anyone else. Hide
