Netflix is morphing animated Italian franchise “Winx Club” into a live action adult series, where six girls — Bloom, Stella, Flora, Musa, Aisha and Tecna — will take the form of real teenagers as they learn to control their powers while attending a magic boarding school.
The new series is produced by Italian animation studio Rainbow “Winx Club WOW” will be exclusively available in all Netflix territories, including France and Germany. And it is not the streaming service’s first venture in the Winx universe. In 2016, Netflix exclusively released two seasons of “World of Winx,” a spin-off series where the girls worked as talent scouts on a reality television talent competition for children and teenagers; secretly trying to save them from being kidnapped by a Talent Thief.
Erik Barmack, VP of International Originals at Netflix, said: “Winx is a global phenomenon and through this exciting series we are thrilled to reinforce our relationship with Rainbow and to develop the next chapter of Winx. The famous fairies will grow up with their audience and will explore complex themes as real-life teenage super heroines in a live action show”.
