We were very lucky indeed to have been invited up to the Mayfair Hotel in London this weekend for a private screening of TinkerBell and the Secret of the Wings, now having two hard core fairy fans in the house I knew it was going to be a hit, what surprised both me and Other Half was how much we enjoyed watching this latest Disney film in 3D too.
This film is so apt for my girls as TinkerBell discovers she has a twin sister, they were both born from the same laugh
When the first baby laughed for the first time, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies. And now when every new baby is born its first laugh becomes a fairy. So there ought to be one fairy for every boy or girl. – J M Barrie
I’m not going to give away the story other than say it is excellent and I really recommend you go and see it over the Christmas holidays, it’s in cinemas all over the country from 14th December.
A quick peek at the Disney online store shows merchandise is already available including soft dolls and a collection of little fairies dressed up in the winter outfits, I’m sure there will be plenty more to follow too. Including PeriWinkle herself.
TinkerBell and the Secret of the wings
Our fabulous day started at 1pm where we had photos with TinkerBell, made pine cones for the Christmas tree, had nails painted with cupcakes and Hello Kitty, hair pieces added and generally lots of fun and laughter, the film was excellent and I shall definitely be buying it on DVD when it comes out later next year.
