5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Movie for the Whole Family, October 14, 2012
About halfway through this movie I looked over my 8 year old daughter, and almost 12 year old son, to my husband and said, "I can't believe I'm getting goosebumps from a Tinker Bell movie."

Yes. Goosebumps.

My daughter and I have watched all the Tinker Bell movies in the franchise, and have even watched the specials on the Disney channel. I have to say that we've loved all the movies, but I think Secret of the Wings is now my favorite.

I won't bore you with the synopsis, as you can read it above, but I will tell you about what we liked,

-New characters!! Not only do we get to see all the favorites, we get lots of brand new characters as well, including Periwinkle (of course), Dewey (the Keeper), Lord Milori (voiced by Timothy Dalton! Yes!), and a host of new friends from the Winter Woods.

-No bad guys. I realized when I was watching this that there are no bad guys in a Tinker Bell movie! There are bad things that happen (and an occasional stray cat), but there is really no one bad guy. I love that! I love that it teaches my daughter that bad things can happen but if you work together, and think outside the box (like Tink), you can solve almost any problem.

-Personal sacrifice. As one of the other reviewers here remarked, there is a moment of personal sacrifice made by Tinker Bell that truly makes the film. It shows that while her main focus is getting to know Periwinkle, she cares more about all of the fairies, and the great pixie dust tree, than her own wishes.

-Great music. I'm still singing..."and the great divide...doesn't seem so wide..." although I do miss the Celtic music from the previous movies.

-The story! How can I put this last? The story is FANTASTIC. Simple enough that children can understand it, and complex enough that adults will enjoy it (note: my husband and I were going "Ooooh - I know what's gonna happen" as there is quite a bit of foreshadowing, but it didn't ruin the movie at all!"

All in all, the entire family has marked this as one of the best Tinker Bell movies yet! Even the animation is getting better (the bobcat looks so real!).

Thanks, Disney, for making an amazing franchise - so...when's the next movie?!

I love your review, and YES, they are making a new Tinker Bell movie. Unfortunately I don't know when it will be coming out. :-)

I was going to write a review but then I read this one and considered the job done. Fantastic review, no spoilers and for those reading comments I will say one thing- watch this movie. It isn't too childish and it is remarkably animated with catchy songs and heartfelt moments. I rented it via amazon instant video and it was simple and played perfectly. I am so happy to have another outlet for affordable instant streaming.

Casual Surveyor - you are, as always, entitled to your opinion, but personally I believe if children learned to be MORE selfless, rather than selfish, there would be much more good done in the world. The Tinkerbell franchise may make money (it's Disney - Disney always makes money) but every one of the movies passes along a good message and is heartfelt - it's rare to find such wonderful family entertainment that isn't boring, silly, or religious! (again, nothing against religion)
