2016 is finally over! Thank goodness! What a rough year! I’ve got some personal scars from it, but I won’t talk about that here.
Each December, I usually make a list of what to expect from the Winx franchise in the new year. I’m a bit behind, but it’s just New Year’s Day. It’s not too late for it.
The problem is I don’t have a lot of news this time. I’ve heard some unconfirmed things, but…they’re unconfirmed. I’ll just list a couple things I know are gonna happen. We’ll have to wait and see about anything else.
1. World of Winx premieres in Italy on RAI Gulp (January)
Since Netflix isn’t that popular in Winx Club‘s motherland, Rainbow’s airing the spinoff on RAI Gulp instead. It’ll premiere this month. Italy may be a couple months behind, but maybe being the only country that gets to watch the show on TV will make up for it.
2. World of Winx season two premieres on Netflix (Q2 — April, May, or June)
That’s according to the flier Michael got at the Licensing Expo last year. Let’s hope it doesn’t get delayed a dozen times like the first season did.
That’s all I know. Sorry, guys. Here are a couple things I’ve heard, but like I said, they’re not confirmed.
1. Tsumanga Studios releases new apps?
According to WinxClubRUS, Rainbow renewed their partnership with Tsumanga Studios — the makers of Winx Fairy School, Sirenix Power, etc. — through 2019. They’re apparently working on a World of Winx-inspired app. Since the whole series should be out by summer, the app will probably come out this year, too.
2. The fourth movie premieres?
I’m definitely not sure about this. I vaguely remember an article about it, but I couldn’t find it again. Maybe I’m right. Maybe I’m wrong. Don’t quote me on it.
We may be in for a lot of surprises this year — good surprises, I hope. Once again, Happy New Year! Here’s hoping for another magical year for Winx Club!
