Disney has been keeping busy...they keep coming up with such unique and new ideas. Secret of the Wings is just one of those. It incorporates two new things never seen before in previous Disney fairies movies as per Peggy Holmes, "winter and cute winter clothes!" If you've ever watched any of the previous films, you'll notice that winter has never really been used much. Well, that is about to change because Tinkerbell is going to find someone special that will create that connection with winter forever. That special someone is her sister, Periwinkle. They were "two fairies born of the same laugh".
What really amuses me is the amount of research and thought that goes into each and everyone of these films. Due to the winter setting, the director did not want the film associated with Christmas so they thought long and hard about the names they would give to the characters. The names spawned from the blues of the wintery scenes so for example, you'd have Periwinkle and McLory, which are both various shades of blue. You would be surprised the amount of research that goes on for these films. For example, they brought in a "twin specialist" to determine the behavior of twins that had been separated early on and then reunited later in life. They also had a snow specialist and even a hair specialist. The hair specialist came in to style and cut Periwinkle's hairstyle live in front of the animating team so that they would know exactly how to animate it. All these details go into creating a magical Disney movie that makes us believe. This was also the first Disney Fairies movie to have 3D produced at the same time of release.
