Secret of the Wings
Disney’s timeless animated movies have delighted children and their parents for generations. Masterpieces such as The Lion King, Finding Nemo or The Little Mermaid have gained a special place in children’s hearts and have made animated movies a much more significant part of the film industry.
Perfectly aware of that, Disney use and reuse their well-known characters, and now it has been the time of Tinker Bell, the fairy character of 1953 picture Peter Pan.
Tinker Bell steps out of the supporting roles to become the protagonist of her own adventures in Disney Fairies. After three previous pictures, the mischievous imp makes a comeback to the screens in the much anticipated Secret of The Wings.
The 3D movie opens with breath-taking imagery of Pixie Hollow, which makes you believe you are there among Tink’s friends building snowflake baskets for the winter fairies. As the precious moments of your 90-minute stay in Never Land pass by, you watch Tinker Bell develop her curiosity about the prohibited land of Winter Woods.
Tink investigates the phenomenon of the sparkling wings, but falls short in discovering the truth as the book pages on which the truth was revealed, have been eaten by a shy bookworm.
Disney’s Secret of The Wings enchants, entertains and educates. The film’s animation is startlingly beautiful and its voice cast exquisite with Mae Whitman (Family Guy) as Tinker Bell and Lucy Liu (Charlie’s Angels, Kill Bill) as Silvermist.
It is, however, a very predictable story and as such feels a little flat. It might be some great entertainment for 3- to 5-year-olds, but I would worry if the film is capable of attracting some older girls, let alone boys of any age.
Secret of the Wings is released nationwide on 14th December 2012.
