Two of my favorite things have come together in this review: my sister and Disney. Really. Life doesn’t get much better than that. A few weeks ago, Disney sent me a special sneak peak at their new fairy movie, “Secret of the Wings.” It is a super, super cute movie. Even Gracie, who never watches television, sat through it. †
The story is about these two fairy sisters: Periwinkle is a Winter Fairy and Tinker Bell is a Summer Fairy. In the movie, they can’t cross over into each other’s seasons because their wings can’t handle the changes in weather. But they eventually learn that as sisters, they can help each other so they can be together.
For more information about “Secret of the Wings,” be sure to check out the Disney website or the movie trailer. Even Bean loved the movie. Coincidentally, he is studying seasons in his class at school, so he really liked that there were seasons in this movie that he could recognize. He liked seeing the winter land with the snow and pointing out the flowers in the spring.
†My favorite part is when they explain how fairies get sisters. We all know that when the first baby laughed for the very first time, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and they all went skipping about. So, fairies are made from babies’ laughs. But sister fairies are two fairies made from the same laugh. Isn’t that the sweetest thing ever?
As a sister myself, I think this applies to more than just fairies. Sometimes, I think my sister and I were born from the same parents … wait a minute … never mind. Old news. But I do think that my sister and I share laughter these days.
From time to time, one of us will call the other when we are really missing my dad. And without fail, the other sister will cry alongside the other, but somehow in the middle of even the deepest sadness, we can make each other laugh. It must be something in our shared genes. Like fairy sisters, we share the same laughter.
It’s the wonder that comes with being a sister, whether you are born sisters or not. It’s the magic that comes with fairy dust and enchanted pumpkins. Having a sister is a fairy tale all its own.
Leave me a comment telling me what sisterhood means to you, and you will be entered for a chance to win your own copy of “Secret of the Wings.”
