Disney Secret of the Wings Review and Giveaway


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.

So fun. What I love about the fairies, is that they are all unique, but they use their talents to help each other...and isn't that what sisterhood is all about?

I have five girls who would LOVE the movie.

Oh man. What does sisterhood mean to me? It's hard to even describe. Your sister is someone who knows what your life is like because you shared the same wacko mom. She knows the pain of trying to find jeans that look good on those huge Polster hips. She passes on make-up tips because you both have the same coloring and she knows her lipsticks will look good on you too. You can gripe about your spouse to her and she can gripe about hers to you and you both know you'll never repeat a word or let it affect your views of her spouse. A sister is someone who knows you better than anyone else in the world and accepts you for exactly who you are. Even knowing my sister was the meanest person in the world to me growing up and made every moment of our relationship miserable until she went off to college doesn't diminsh my joy in having her as my best friend now. Wild, huh? But that's what a sister is.

Sisterhood has shaped who I am as a person and a mother. It was just my sister and I and I learned so much from her. She is an amazing person. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway :)

Sisterhood can mean a lot of different things to everyone. To me it means friendship! My sisters and I fought but also played together constantly when we were little, but now my sister is my best friend. She is the one I call and talk to almost every day. Even if we have nothing to talk about we can still be on the phone for over an hour:) I don't know what I would do with out her!

Sisterhood? Hmmmm... I don't have a sister, but I have 2 daughters who are only 15 months apart. They are the best of friends and the worst of enemies! But they are always there for each other through the good, the bad and the ugly. Love is unconditional betweeen them, and I just love that!

Renonda said...

I think sisterhood means friendship. Always having someone you can count on. My girls are best friends and very close.

Brittany said...

Sisterhood is letting those you care about and who care about you see you at your very worst and love you all the same.

Katie said...

My girls are dying to see this! I don't know what I would do without my sisters, or knowing that my two girls have each other. Sisterhood is...essential!

Anonymous said...

I am so excited to hear that Tinkerbell has a sister (and a twin at that)!!!

I have twin girls who LOVE Tinkerbell and we are counting down the days until it's release.

My girls are 5-years-old TODAY!

Sisterhood is growing up with your best friend.

Heather said...

Sisterhood means being there for your sister always, no exceptions. It means being a sound board or a shoulder to cry on, and celebrating with her through the wonderful things as well!

I grew up with two younger sisters no brothers so sisterhood was special. I love watching my two daughters have a strong bond of sisterhood together. It is so beautiful! Sisterhood means being there for each other and having that special bond with one another.

I only have a brother (always wished I had a sister too), but him and I have a special bond. We are very close and can trust each other with anything.

Sisterhood means always being here for our sister to celebrate the good things and help with the not so great stuff and giggle together during either.

Sisterhood means always having someone who has your back, holds your secrets and loves you unconditionally. I love my sister to death and would do anything for her. I am my sister's keeper.

Sisterhood to me is loving a sister as you grow up and respecting her when you're older. I have a great sister and we were so close doing everything together. But she moved away and I am having major medical problems, so it's been hard to get back up with her. Hearing all the stories makes me realize that I need to call her as soon as I finish this.
Thanks for the Giveaway.

Sisterhood...well I never had a sister, just one brother. But now as a Mom I have 4 daughters and one son and my 4 daughters will get the chance to have sisters. A sister to me means a friend for life, through good and bad a sister will always be there. I am so happy that my daughters will have this that I missed out on.

Kerry said...

I don’t have sisters of my own, but I do have twin daughters and I have seen unconditional love in them! That is what sisterhood means to me.
