Netflix have announced their plans to create a live-action version of “Winx Club” aimed at young adults. “Winx CLub” began life as an animated series from Italy back in 2004 and then in 2016 Netflix released 2 seasons of “World of Winx” – a spinoff based on the original series. The six fairies will turn into real teenagers while they try to hone their powers at boarding school.
“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”.
