I have no idea. it makes NO sense. AT. ALL.  I honestly never expected them to leave characters out. Flora and Techna have been in the series from the very beginning.

 

 

A mess I tell you, I was so excited 😔

 

 

 

Still will watch bc of Riven.

This movie is already damned. Sad, Flora is my favourite and I hoped to see a little bit of her romance with Helia :(. If her name is really going to be changed to Terra then it is just stupid and unnecessary. Honestly, Flora is such a lovely name and is rather known internationally than Terra.

And they really should have begun with season 1, nobody demands that they should include everything, but why do I have the feeling that the quality will be like the one of the newer seasons (I mean everything after season 3 or maybe season 4. I stopped watching it after this, because it didn't had the original charm anymore and I doubt the movie will be better)

I thought it was a movie, because most of the time it is. Maybe it will be a show, I just assumed it is one. If it is a show I seriously hope there will be no filler episodes and the story line shouldn't be dragged out like it is often the case

Found some new info on the series and the supposed upcoming plot lines. so it seems this winx club version is going to be aimed at a MUCH older audience, not sure if itll be kid friendly at all, which imo can either be a good or a bad thing. and I´m not sure which one it´ll be for me, I´m technically not a fan of exessive swearing/drinking/obnoxious make out/seks scenes in series, but we will see. I mean I´m not saying theyre going to snort cocaïne and bang all the guys while the camera zooms in on it but wow, it just seems so different. Very adult ish, and def not suitable for 5 to 12 year olds. overall I will be watching atleast one episode when I can. cause I´m not going ot lie and say I´m not curious at all hehe.

below contains spoilers in case anyone wants to refrain from reading possible upcoming plots

 

Information about the characters from the series "Fate: the Winx Club Saga":

  • Stella and Sky were together

  • Sky and Riven are best friends

  • Riven moron

  • Riven and Beatrix in a relationship

  • Riven thinks Sky is not much better than himself.

  • There will be a scene where Stella will come to Skye's room at night

  • Stella complains that everyone hates her and considers her a monster

  • Skye's father died a long time ago.

Thank you @Kiko :)

So basically we get an americanized version of Winx...

Spoiler, because I will rant about things I don't like about it

1. Why the hell did Stella and Sky have had a thing??? It is such a cheap thing in teenager shows and honestly it will be so akward to watch.

2. Why would Flora spread rumors? She is shy and would rather be too afraid of being hated by Stella, so why is she the one to spread them? Musa or Aisha/Layla (or Bloom) would have been better considering they don't really care what people think about them and say what they want and they could have arguments with Stella, while Flora would try to calm everyone down and they all would somehow also be mad at her for not wanting to say what she thinks. Through such a situation a character development could be happening for Flora (and the others)

3. They shouldn't have cut the Trix into one person. It seems rediculous to have probably 6 girls against one

4. If they make a show they should have never cut characters, especially the girls. Some could have been shown, even if it is just for a few minutes, but cutting them literally makes it unnecessary to adapt Winx into a live adaption show. They should have rather made a new original show instead. Why is it even called Winx, if half of them won't transform and Kiko etc. won't exist?

5. I am not against Winx targeting a mature fan base, but seeing these informations it seems like they will focus too much on relationship dramas (which I hate) and not on those things, which made Winx charming like for example their friendship and struggles with each others personalities and the adventures

6. I hope they will have at least a normal specialist there. Having two idiots, who are horny af, makes boys seen really bad there (especially if they prey on the freshmans) and is a rather bad message, because why should they all want the same guys, who don't even really care about them, when they can be single? It will probably won't be as bad, but I want a guy like Helia or Timmy there, who are actually nice to their crush without having "used" other ones before and having relationship dramas like a fiancée 

7. It is also cheap if Riven will break up his friendship with Sky up, because he is jealous. Why can't they have a best friend (Brandon) and a friend (turned enemy like Riven in the first season)? It's more interesting that way and they could make Riven try to turn Brandon against Sky etc.

8. The cast is not that great, but I think it could have been way worse. Some of them fit and some don't fit at all

I guess that's enough for now xD

Oh my god i had a whole ass winx club instagram page (bc for some reason 12y/o me went through another winx phase? Idk i think i tried to return a few times after it since i wanted to get into editing but that was one big flop. The worst thing is that i can remember it perfectly and cry now when i read the captions since my english used to be so bad. I would attach a picture of the account but i think that counts as self promo so i will skip that)

 

In general in just sad that they wasted so much potential. I was a big fan of bloom amd wamted to watch her relationship with sky more - not gonna lie, not a big fan of the other girls. Im kinda interested in how the american version will work out.

Last note: am i the only one who lived on the winx club magazines? Those who came out once a month?  I had so many of them and was sad whenever i couldnt buy them since they weren't really cheap

IKR!! its so out of character for Flora, she was Always one who wanted to keep the peace in the group. she was timid, shy, caring. She cared for Mirtha for who knows how long after she was turned into a plant.

and Stella was just a fun ditzy girl who sometimes spoke before she thought. AND she was actually the one who liked to gossip the most out of all of them. turning her into some insecure girl that needs man approval...AGAIN...so out of character.

also yes the guys. I hope they do not reduce them to some stupid seks obsessed cave man. I have a low key feeling its going to be a sky/bloom/stella love triangle...please...god...no.

Ill miss Brandon a lot. he is a great guy, anyone remember that s2 episode, where stella turns into a super weird frog looking creature, and brandon pretends he cant see it and at the end he says even when she looks like that he still loves her? Love that episode. Stella belongs with Brandon. Not.With. Freaking. Sky.

so I guess Stella and Bloom arent bffs either huh?

they shoudve just called it shoobiedobeedoobdoob club and have no winx Association to the show. I honestly never saw it coming that they would just throw away characters so important and mess up the entire show dynamics...even WEIRDER how the creator of winx just agrees with it all.

I loved them so much (my sister threw them away, before my phase was over ^^'). I had so many of them :')

 

The insecure one at the beginning was Bloom (+Flora), so why do they make th most confident one the insecure one? While I didn't liked Stella that much at the beginning (she grew in me) she showed that she wasn't only self-centred through the show and helped her friends, while she still had flaws and that she isn't only a "princess". They could have made these rumors about Flora or Bloom and they could have grown more confident as the show goes on through their friends (or they could maybe even do it with Helia, considering he didn't even wanted friends before and is even more the odd one than Flora and it would be interesting to see a guy being bullied and breaking out of it, while still not giving up on his personality, hobbies and being probably seen as a rather "feminine" guy, who isn't weak).

I honestly could imagine Stella being bullied and called a monster, but rather through an accident/stupid or mean comments about someone, which she didn't really mean and she later apoligises to them. But she wouldn't be the insecure type and a rather loud (almost agressive) type, who fights back.

I hope Bloom doesn't turn out to be a Mary Sue. And it will surely be a love triangle (which I hate lol), where Stella and Bloom will fight for Sky and somehow later Bloom pities Stella bc of the rumors and will be her BFF...

Just what is the point in filming Winx, when they don't transform, don't have enemies, don't have their original personalities, are fighting over stupid guys and probably include like 5 percent of magic in it?

About the creator agreeing: I guess money speaks louder than quality #the50978SeasonsOfWinx

PS: Please someone tell me that I am not the only one, who finds that Bloom being a Harry Potter fan is cringey (as well as otother things ^^')

Me!! VERY cringy. I have also read that the girls wont be fairies but witches instead, hence probably why there is no existence of cloud tower or the trix.

Aside of Bloom and the boys I don't like the rest of the cast, so I will put who I think would have been a better choice: 

Musa - Jieqiong (Always imagined her Chinese rather than Japanese as most people do tbh) 

5edd1f593152e36b3e493e554330d8fe.jpg

Flora - María Pedraza 

img_lbaquero_20181106-104006_imagenes_md

Stella - Lily Rose Depp 

Lily+Rose+Depp+Chanel+Outside+Arrivals+P

Aisha - Vanessa Morgan (Since she's rather light skinner compared to her father) 

Vanessa-vanessa-morgan-41240801-1080-129

Brandon - K.J. Apa (Since they seem to be using only actors from other netflix shows) 

Kj-Apa-Natural-Hair-Color.jpg

Tecna - Tiera Skovbye

Timmy - Thomas Brodie-sangster

I agree, I Always saw Musa as Chinese rather than Japanese and I´m not sure why, it was Always just a feeling.

she has been drawn wearing contradicting traditional costumes but that is probably more a case of lack of knowledge on the creators side.but her mothers name matlin wa-nin and Ho-Boe. I think that chinese winx world ancestry seems the most likely

and I love your Layla btw omg she wouldve been perfect! 

I Always assumed Helia to be asian as well so you´re not the only one, but since there no clear indication of his race so if hed get casted in the live actiion it either be a white guy with long black hair or asian guy with long black hair I think.
