Eleven years later, the Winx are still flying! Can you believe it?
It’s been a rough year for some fans, especially in the U.S. Dolls are disappearing, the show’s been off for months. Yeesh!
But I’m really excited about next year. Here’s some of what’s to come.
1. “Winx Club Musical Show” continues
2. Season six ends in the U.S.?
Disclaimer: don’t repeat what I’m about to say. It’s not proven. It’s just a hunch.
I’m starting to think Rainbow, not Nick, is holding up the last ten episodes. Maybe they’re waiting for their contract to expire so they can air them somewhere else — like, say, Netflix.
Again, don’t quote me on this. I have zero proof.
3. Season seven premieres worldwide on Nick
I can prove this: Nick will air season seven worldwide starting next year. (Not sure if that includes the U.S.) By the way, to debunk a rumor I’ve read: they’re not co-producing season seven. Thank goodness, because…well, you know.
In case you haven’t seen it, here’s the official plot:
…the fairies discover the real importance of the rare Fairy Animals, which they must save from Kalshara, an evil shape-shifter and her clumsy brother, Brafilius. The theme of endangered animals recurs throughout the series as the Winx establish an Animal Rescue Park on Earth, where they look after vulnerable animals such as pandas and tigers. The girls also undertake missions in the Magic Dimension and Earth to raise public awareness about the animal cause. This builds to their final mission – to discover the ultimate power of the Fairy Animals, which can give control over all the animals of the Magic Universe.
4. New merchandise hits stores in the U.S. and India
Thanks to Studio Fun, the U.S. will get new Winx books new spring. Earthbound, the new U.S. licensing agent for Winx, will add kids’ clothes and more for fans’ shopping lists. India got a new agent, too: Viacom18. (Yep, that Viacom.) Their goal: make Winx “the most popular fashion brand in India for young girls.” Check out their showcase here!
5. Rainbow works on Winx Club: WOW
Move over, PopPixie! There’s a new spinoff coming! In Winx Club WOW: World of Winx, the girls will look for kids who are gifted in art, science, sports, and music. Season one will debut on Netflix early 2016.
I hope you’re as excited about 2015 as I am! What are you looking forward to the most?
