Tinker Bell, sisterhood and overcoming obstacles

Princess love

There’s something magical about each of the Disney princesses. Most of us find the stories of Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan, Tiana and Rapunzel irresistible.

Without question, Disney has shown us time and again that they know how to pull us in with their princesses.

A simpler kind of love

But in Walt Disney Studio’s recent all-new, original full-length animated film, Secret of the Wings, we experience another kind of love. Unlike the stereotypical Disney princess story, Tinker Bell is a brave, strong-willed and curious protagonist who isn’t interested in romance. The focus of Secret of the Wings is on a simpler, sweeter type of love.

Tinker Bell, sisterhood and overcoming obstaclesMeet Periwinkle

In Secret of the Wings, Tinker Bell, along with her warm season fairy friends that we know and love — Fawn, Iridessa, Rosetta, Silvermist and Vidia — enter the Winter Woods, a mysterious and forbidden place. Instructed to remain in Pixie Hollow and never cross over to the Winter Woods because she and the other warm weather fairies wouldn’t survive the cold, Tinker Bell has difficulty resisting the pull and her curiosity wins out.

Once she crosses over to the Winter Woods, her wings begin to sparkle and in her quest to find out why, she uncovers a magical, life altering secret when she learns that she has a twin sister, Periwinkle, who lives in the Winter Woods.

Tinker Bell, sisterhood and overcoming obstaclesThe joy of sisterhood

While the previous movies in the Tinker Bell series beautifully capture the closeness between Tinker Bell and her friends, in Secret of the Wings, we see her experience the joy of the bond that only siblings can know.

The audience watches and cheers as Tinker Bell, Periwinkle and their friends work together to find a way to overcome the obstacles that keep them apart.

Secret of the Wings, with its humor, stunning graphics and themes of sisterhood, friendship and teamwork, is a perfect addition to your collection of Disney movies and is now available on Blu-ray 3D, DVD and digital format.
