Fate: The Winx Saga – The After Party
In 2011 an animated children’s series ‘Winx’, co-produced by ‘Nickelodeon’ and ‘Rainbow SpA’ proved to be a popular show. The show’s creator ‘Iginio Straffi’ called for a live-action movie spin-off at the time and talks were in play with big producers but it wasn’t until 2018 when Netflix decided to get involved. The streaming giant wanted to move the theme into teen/young adult drama and the six-episode series landed on Netflix last week. The show sits very much in the teen category which has proved a successful move, just catching some of the original fan-base whilst also attracting a whole new one. This one-off ‘After Party’ features snippets and interviews with the cast in a behind-the-scenes look at the new show and is bound to be a hit for those who binged the show recently and are looking for more.
