Rainbow’s currently working on a fourth, full-length Winx Club film, according to an article in Yahoo! Italia Notizie. It’s not clear what kind it’ll be. It could be another with CGI, but it could also be the live-action movie Mr. Straffi’s wanted for years. Last time he talked about it, it was in the screenplay phase.
Many blogs and fan sites are saying this will be the last movie, but I think that’s a mistranslation. Here’s the line they’re pointing to:
Netflix trasmetterà anche la library della Winx oltre ad aver commissionato una nuova serie d’animazione di 13+13 puntate, e distribuirà negli altri paesi anche l’ultimo film delle Winx (e’ già previsto un quarto lungometraggio in sviluppo).
The “l’ultimo film delle Winx” part is about the third movie, Mystery of the Abyss. Netflix currently streams it in the U.S. and several other countries. In this case, l’ultimo film means “the latest film” or “the last completed film.” The news about the fourth movie follows in parenthesis, which suggests it’s separate from that part. So the article doesn’t say the fourth movie will be the last — just that it’s “in development” (in sviluppo).
How do you feel about a new Winx Club movie coming?
