For months my girls have been looking forward to the release of the new Disney Tinker Bell movie, Secret of the Wings. It will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on October 23, right in the middle of their two birthdays, so they were planning on it to arrive at our house in the form of a birthday present. They were extra excited when, in September, it came in the mail for us to preview.
As we have come to expect from Tinker Bell, her curiosity leads to an adventure, some fun inventions, and eventually trouble. Tinker Bell discovers that she has a twin sister, a fairy born from the same laugh, but through her attempts to spend time with the winter fairy they accidentally put the pixie dust tree at risk of freezing. This time, she doesn't just have her friends to depend on. She has her sister. Together, the fairies, including the seven new characters in this film, work together to save the tree and all of Pixie Hollow.
Disney took their dive into this story of sisterhood seriously and did their research. During the production they enlisted the help of a noted twin-study expert. They listened to incredible stories of long-lost twins reuniting and viewed footage of twins meeting for the first time. This information was used when they developed how Tinker Bell and Periwinkle reacted to each other, both physically and emotionally, when they were reunited. Even the main song from the film, 'The Great Divide', is sung by real life sisters Sierra, Lauryn and China McClain.
It was fun to watch Tinker Bell and Periwinkle get to know each other and discover the bonds that sisters share. My girls loved all of the fun things the two fairies had in common and I loved the way Periwinkle always came to help Tinker Bell without hesitation. Although my girls are young and may not recognize it, these are the same things I enjoy about watching them together too. I love watching them share interests, play and laugh together, and especially help each other. It is a bond that I am happy to know they will have for the rest of their lives.
