Poor Tinker Bell – the mean old animators at Disney have given her a personality lobotomy. That, or Diazepam. In ‘Peter Pan’ JM Barrie wrote her as a sneaky, misbehaving little madam. Disney have turned her into a sugar-and-spice goody-goody with a serious Beyoncé butt – honestly, she looks like a lap dancer. The fourth film in the Tinker Bell series, ‘Secret of the Wings’ finds Tink tiptoeing through tulips into the frost fairies’ Winter Woods, where she finds her long-lost sister.There are some sweet moments: a lovely scene as the animals hop over from the Autumn Woods to hibernate in the Winter Woods. But its bland, girly niceness will leave you feeling like you’ve just scoffed all the advent calendar chocs before breakfast on December 1. The silver lining for parents? It’s a snappy 75 minutes.
