Visually stunning
As you'd expect with a Disney movie, this really delivers on beautiful, crisp visuals. The focus on the seasons made for some wonderful scenes with winter and spring landscapes.

The plot is straightforward and moves along at a good pace, making it very watchable for its target audience, young children. There's not much here for adults but that's OK!

An obvious criticism is that this movies plays very much on the "girls as pretty princesses" stereotype. The male characters are the one's in charge of technology and knowledge, which is too stereotypical and a bit of a disappointment.

On the other hand, it's good to see female characters in lead "action" roles. Tinkerbell and Periwinkle aren't exactly deep or complex characters but they are still engaging and make it a magical film for young children.

Charming fun for young 'uns
It does annoy me when films are judged under a complete misunderstanding of for whom they are intended. I can only imagine that the relatively low rating for this film on this site is due in most part due to viewers seeing this and forgetting it's aimed at 3 to 7 year old girls. I bet most of the voters aren't 3 to 7 year old girls.

I can only endorse the comments of the other posters so far who have all enjoyed it and whose children have enjoyed it. I took my 5 year old today and she loved it. We had only seen the previous Tinkerbells on DVD so I was a tad surprised to see this turn up in the cinema (but not in 3D - glory be!) but I thought it was a decent enough effort which pushed all the right buttons, in the right order, and didn't outstay its welcome. They say that when you notice the backgrounds in a film the plot has lost you, but in this case I don't think that's true; I found the contrasting depictions of the winter/summer fairy lands quite spectacular, adding to the film. Not to mention the animals' furs and feathers...! Good work.

Obviously as an Englishman and childhood fan of Peter Pan I baulk somewhat at the Disney version of Tinkerbell, but as a father of 5 year old Fairy-obsessive, it is what it is. And it does what it sets out to do - quite well, I think.

Mild spoiler: My daughter got upset when the sisters were told they could never see each other again; nevertheless there is no antagonism, peril or violence to put off younger children.

DVD is certainly its natural home, but of its type (and I don't mean anything bad by that) this is pretty good and I think young children would enjoy it very much. Some grown-ups might, too.

Charming with beautiful visuals
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

A good story and great animation
I normally go to adult movies. But once in a while, with my little daughter, we decide to go to the theaters to discover the magic of animation. I do frequently criticize movies that do not have strong stories. And animated movies are part of those. But the four movies of Tinker Bell are outstanding. Not only because of the animation or the creativity involved in every situation, but specially because the story is normally so strong, and the characters are so well defined, that a sense of emotion comes from me and my family at the end of the movie, and when any movie touches you in some way, it has achieved its goal. Totally recommended for families and people who wants to discover something new in a classic story.

Tink gets a winter surprise
I bought the Blu-Ray of "The Secret of the Wings" after having seen badly ripped tidbits of it. The tiny bits that I saw (in a rather crappy quality) made me wonder about the rest of the movie, and I decided to just buy the movie.

Now, I have to admit that Disney's fairies are kind of a guilty pleasure for this grown-up geek. I know they are, basically, meant for kids, however, there are enough little jokes and visual gags that go over the heads of little ones, to entertain grown-ups too.

Aside from the gags and little in-jokes, the high quality blu-ray visuals are absolutely stunning, even in 2d. The color palette is gorgeous, atmospheric and translates very well to a smaller screen. The animation is very good. Some mo capping seems to have been used, but not consistently. Frankly that's a bit of a shame. Kids won't notice, but this art-school drop-out noticed that the upper-torso movements, the little twitches that every human has, were captured in sheer perfection, and show the craft of the Disney animators. However, walking animations, and animal animations were not very convincing and pulled me a bit out of the "immersion" The snow-owls were adequate, but the lynx was absolutely not.. Nit-picking, I know.

And while I am at it, the "songs" were an uninspired atrocity, belted-out by some talentless, soulless...person.. Brrrr. The rest of the music was good, with nice little touches of classical pieces. Listen f.i. careful to the theme played when Tinkerbell and her sister, Periwinkle "dance" around each other for the first time.

The story on its own was a nice adventure bit, with some really funny characters that were brought to joyful life by an excellent combo of very talented voice-actors (and some big names at that..) and the Disney animators that, as already stated, absolutely know their craft.

All in all movies like this show that CGI doesn't have to be lifeless shiny stuff, and prove that in the hands of people that know what they are doing, can be just as charming (and tugging at your heart-strings) as drawn animation.

On a side-note: What struck me, was an underlying message that girls can do technical stuff too. Tinkerbell designs, and builds a snow-maker with the help of the other girls. The boys just deliver the parts. Tinkerbell..well.. She "tinkers" and is still, undoubtedly a girl. That's an on-going theme in the Disney-fairy movies and shorts. I think it is a really good, empowering thing for girls to be told:"yes, you can/may build technical gizmo's. It's not just a boy-thing, or a weird geek-thing".

Kids will love it......
This movie is not as good as other tinker bell movies. But still i love this movie. Specially the climax,where it shows the original bonding of two sisters. The kiss shared between queen and lord milori was a nice shot. The whole new side of the fairy land. All new peoples. All new fun and all new works, makes this movie very special.

Children in my home are big fan of tinker bell.

Animation is really good. I conclude a message from the movie is ,love cannot be kept apart,whether it is the love of sisters. Tinker bell has a sister Periwinkle....wow...

I have seen the tinker bell series and i love the first part very much.

This movie deserves a watch and 9 stars.

Disappointing addition to a previously very good series
This is the fourth in the feature-length direct-to-DVD Tinkerbell series.

The previous three videos were entertaining and fairly original.

This most recent addition is uninspired, unoriginal, and overly simplistic. It lacks the relative depth and richness of its predecessors, and the soundtrack is little more than a lightweight disfigurement of those in the previous videos.

A child certainly might like this movie, but it is nevertheless inferior in virtually every way.

If you haven't seen the previous three movies, I'd recommend getting one or all of those.

If you have seen the previous three movies, I think you'll find that this one adds nothing of value to the experience.

A perfect children's movie
Tinkerbell and the Secret of the Wings is ultimately and obviously a children's movie (For young girls in particular). From the dialog to the characters, the music and the colors, it is a movie all children would enjoy.

Although there have been many previous Tinkerbell movies, this one concentrates on Tinkerbell and her background. As Tinkerbell becomes fascinated with the forbidden Winter Forest and the Winter Fairies, she embarks on a journey of self discovery and adventure as we delve into her past and explore where she came from.

Like all Disney movies, this movie has big, bold colors, realistic textures, and of course, 3D. We see swooping shots of caricatured forests, glistening glaciers, and picturesque little animals. And once you get over the obviously cheesy dialog, it's actually not a bad film. I wouldn't see it on my own, but if you're looking for something to see with your 7 year old daughter/niece, it's the perfect choice. There's something there for both genders, and it has the feel-good factor of a classic Disney animation.

Although this is not as good as other Disney's movies, such as Up and How to Train Your Dragon, it's a nice, 'pretty' movie. Overlook the wincing humor, and enjoy this film with kids, who will no doubt find the wit hilarious. Try to make it a family day, overpriced popcorn and drinks included.

An adult that liked this movie
I saw this on TV so I missed out on the sound and feel of a Theater viewing. And I think that that is a sad thing. The graphics are great on the small screen so they must be amazing on the big.

The story was very good, though (for grown-ups) a bit predictable. Basically Tinker Bell (a warm weather fairy) wants to cross the border to the winter realm, which is against the rules. Similarly a Winter Fairy wants to see the warm realm. When these two get together the typical Tinker Bell problems ensue requiring fairies from both realms to come together to fix.

For the adults this is escapist entertainment with a mild political overtone. For the kids this is great entertainment with friendship, action, some adventure and just a touch of learning why we have rules.

My only negative comment is the song that played in the background throughout the movie. It is something about dividing or a divide. I don't usually comment on an individual's talent if I cannot do a better job, but whoever was singing that song needs to quit. The voice was like fingernails on a chalkboard and extremely distracting.

I would have given this movie a full 10 stars had it not been for the constant playing of that song.

She's "tinkering" around again!!!
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.
