Video: How Does the Disc Look?
Secret of the Wings may not be perfect on this 3D 1.78:1 1080p transfer, but for the vast majority of its 70+ minute playtime, it's pretty darned impressive. Color accuracy is especially vivid and well-balanced, and detail accuracy is absolutely razor-sharp, with CGI textures coming across with stupefyingly life-like immediacy. Black levels are sturdy from start to finish, as well, and aliasing and banding only rear their ugly heads every once in a while. Depth has a cool presence in terms of the 3D aspects of this transfer, as well - it's not a wall-to-wall encompassing presentation, but the added dimension definitely opens up the world of the story here noticably.
Audio: How Does the Disc Sound?
Compared to its bigger-than-life visual conceit, Secret of the Wings comes to Blu-ray with a surprisingly unadventurous DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio sound mix that may be wholly appropriate as a track, but doesn't do nearly as much as it should to draw viewers into its mystical world. Dialogue is - unsurprisingly - audible throughout, and effects and atmospherics play their parts well, but surrounds never kick in with the frequency they have potential to, which feels like a missed opportunity. But again, this is due to simplicity on the part of the movie's sound designers, not any misstep in terms of this lossless mix.
French and Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1 sound mixes are included, as are English SDH, French, and Spanish subtitles.
