I’m sure you know by now, but the popular Nickelodeon cartoon Avatar: The Last Airbender is getting a live-action remake simply called The Last Airbender (thanks to James Cameron). The movie is directed by M. Night Shyamalan and is set to be released this summer. (If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, you must. It’s awesome. ^^)
If Avatar can cross into this dimension, why can’t Winx Club, which may even be more popular worldwide than it was? It is less likely to happen; Avatar had no previous theatrical releases, and Winx is coming up on two, so it seems Rainbow intends to ground those releases in the CGI format. However, another popular girls’ franchise, Bratz, started with CGI movies before a live-action one was released a couple years ago. And the Winx Club theater performances show that Rainbow isn’t opposed to live portrayals of their characters. Most cartoons don’t even go that far.
How would you feel about a live-action Winx Club movie? If you were in charge, who would you cast in each role?
(Yes, I know the picture is from Winx Power and not from a movie announcement or something. :))
