Cute and Beautifully Animated, But One Big Slip.
I liked this movie a lot, it was cute, beautiful, and sweet. However, I couldn't enjoy the movie as much as I would've because of a big slip in a plot line: In the first movie, a snowflake talent fairy greets Tinkerbell with a snowflake, if that were to have been her talent. The pixie dust tree is a "warm" meadow, however, but the snowflake fairy was fine there. Also, Clank and Bobble show Tinkerbell around, and going through the winter woods, they had no problem. What happened to the minister of winter? Because I don't remember a "Lord Miliori" anywhere in that picture. The movie was good, just doesn't follow the other movies.

If you've never seen a Tinkerbell film please don't be put off by thinking they are only for kids or for girls
Each of the Tinkerbell films is very different from all its siblings in many distinctive ways. The Secret of the Wings is no exception. The stories are always of the highest standard. This time the narrative is developed at a fairly gentle pace for almost half the film, allowing the viewer to acquire quite a thorough empathy for the bonding feelings between Tinkerbell and her newly discovered sister, Periwinkle. The second half of the film has plenty of excitement, action and suspense. Tinkerbell's inventiveness and powers of observation are brought to the fore in a race to save nothing less than the whole of Pixie Hollow. Interacting with the winter fairies introduces us to many new characters as well as showing us the icily beautiful wonderland that the winter fairies inhabit. The background music is also excellent and there are some lovely and well sung songs. This is the first Tinkerbell film I've seen on a cinema screen and I absolutely loved the experience. If you've never seen a Tinkerbell film please don't be put off by thinking they are only for kids or for girls. I'm a 68 year old male and I (and my son) love them! Can't wait to add Secret of the Wings to my Tinkerbell blue ray collection (but will hopefully see it again at the cinema before it ends its run).

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

Find Magic Agan in the World of Fairies
I loved this movie. I don't have kids, but I love so many movies for kids because many of them are safe for viewing and they hold a magic absent from adult movies. I didn't find this one to have those ever increasing double entendre jokes that are meant to entertain adults with their children. I also like that there wasn't a villain, unless you would consider the quickly approaching freeze line a villain.

I didn't find the dialogue cheesy like others have mentioned. I found the animation to be spectacular, the story simple and pleasing (who needs complicated stories anyway? We have enough of those in our own world.), and the characters vibrant. I did have two points of contention. First, the first Tinker Bell movie depicts winter fairies when Tinker Bell is born and then chooses her talent. One of them puts a snowflake in the talent circle. They seem to be fine and aren't in danger of their wings wilting. The minister of winter flies with other warm fairies outside of the winter woods and seems fine, too. As a reviewer elsewhere stated, how do they fly to the mainland to bring winter if they can't get warm? Second, there is a character who is a comic relief that seems like he was fashioned after pothead/stoner characters, which I don't like. At one point he is meditating yogi style to bring back the pixie dust. I would rather see a praying character, as they are rare, but as Disney doesn't eliminate them entirely from other movies, I'll hold my peace on this one.

Overall, though, I really liked this movie. I can overlook my points of contention because there is enough to redeem the film.

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.

Amazing beautiful and creative
This is the story of a fairy that wants to go on the snowy side of the land. Fairies that live on the cold side cannot go on the warmer side of the fairy land and fairies on the warmer side cannot go on the cold side for safety reasons.

One of the fairies - Tinkerbell wants to go to the colder side and speak with the Keeper who wrote a book about fairy wings. She makes a winter outfit for herself and sneaks into a basket carried by winter owls over to the snowy side of the land.

The colors of the land are created beautiful. The flower fields are animated and a layer of flowers in purple open up across the screen.

A rainbow is also animated that goes across the screen that goes into the fields. There is also a very colorful field of butterflies on grass,all beautifully animated.

Two male friends of Tinker are very creative and make a machine that produces snow for a fairy coming over from the cold side.

The scenery is beautiful, the story is funny, very sweet and joyful. It is a wonderful movie for people of any age to see. It is like being in a beautiful fantasy land with characters that are creative, kind and helpful.

"Secret of the Wings" takes Tinker Bell into the depths of the Winter world just in time for Christmas
Disney continues its "Fairies" franchise with the latest entry in the series, "Secret of the Wings." This marks the fourth movie and there doesn't look to be an end in sight with next year's addition already scheduled. Timing couldn't be better to release the newest sequel since it takes place in the land of Winter and would make the perfect gift for Christmas for any little girl.

A curious Tinker Bell ignores the rules of warm fairies and ventures into the forbidden world of winter. Her dangerous excursion leads her to uncover a mysterious secret and almost break a wing . A bizarre glow overcomes her wings during the quick visit, which drives Tinker Bell to return and delve deeper into the winter woods in search of the Keeper of all fairy knowledge.

"Secret of the Wings" looks fabulous. Its CG animation is clean and picture perfect. A greater amount of visual depth can be felt when watching the 3D version of the film. However, the 2D version is stunning as well. The color schemes are beautiful no matter if the screen is filled with striking whites or darker tones.

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.

Favorite Tinker Bell movie... Beautiful!
Our family enjoys the Tinker Bell series - I think they are the most beautifully animated movies ever - visually stunning! The plots typically do not grab me that much, but I'll watch them with my girls for the visual "eye candy" of the scenery and setting - the sparkles, the nature, the beautiful animation.

Secret of the Wings may have been the prettiest one yet!

The story held many surprises for us (we had not watched trailers or read about it, so we went in blind other than having watched the previous 3). The story was funny, warm, adventurous and my personal favorite in the collection. Meeting Tinker Bell's sister, Periwinkle, and watching them bond was fantastic. The Keeper was a very lovable "grandpa" sort of character that added to the show and we enjoyed the back story for Queen Clarion.

It is extremely unusual that we enjoy any sequel (x4) as much as the first, but this one surpassed the first by a mile!!! Beautiful!

To be clear - when I rate a child's movie, I am comparing it to other animated movies / rated G - not ALL movies of ALL time. Thus, my score may seem too high to some if they think I'm comparing it to Gone with the Wind, Casablanca, and the like. I am comparing it more to other animated features for children.
