In this follow-up to the fourth film Secret of the Wings (a.k.a.

Most of the comedy stems from this close group of fairies friends having their powers switched among each other.
Filmmakers draw from past installments in this film series, especially when including the blue fairy dust and its properties. The conflicts are memorable, but mild, which won’t traumatize very young viewers. The writers create a great sense of exploration and problem solving that engages viewers.
