Determined to master their enchanting powers, a group of teens navigate rivalry, romance and supernatural studies at Alfea, a magical boarding school.

  • The VFX were really good in the series, I'm hoping the costumes will be also be good in the next season. I literally had a physical reaction when I saw some of the outfits the characters wore. And not the good kind of physical reaction.

  • I’m not even watching this video. Just commenting: please put some more love in this series. The plot could improve so much more and make it truly Winx. Not a third grade series please. VFX can be really good when well done. Please make something memorable and with quality. It deserves that. And don’t mess with characters. Magic is supposed to be thrilling. Winx are supposed to be thrilling, not this quality you present us with...

  • Bruh... If they don't make a season 2 *QUICK* people will forget about this show since it only had like 6 eps and finished it in one night. Things that blow up *QUICKLY* die down just as fast which is why they need to release a season 2 which has more episodes so people don't loose interest.

  • Would've loved to see some more before and afters, especially of the shots where they use magic. Do they attach LED lights to their hard, paint them out then comp in the fx? Would have loved to see the original shot

  • A lot of people saying they love the show probably hadn't had their childhood series ruined. The visuals are great, as usual, but the dark plot sucks. Plus, lots of characters have been changed and/or missing.

    • @TheTails Speed innit winx club is so babyish now compared to season *1, 2, & 3.* I actually heard somewhere that the original Italian creator of *Winx Club* actually aimed for winx club to be enjoyed by everyone (teens & adults) included which is why a lot of people loved seasons 1 to 3....but when it got handed to *Nickelodeon* they changed to make it *ONLY* aimed for little children removing ANYTHING that may seem inappropriate including changing their outfits to have longer dressed that don't make their booty as obvious and even making the girls younger than their actual ages. It was so obvious it's painful...

    • @TheTails Speed Yeah, Ignio may have noticed, we'll never know but obviously they didn't give a damn about it and went to produce the dark and depressing fairy version of Riverdale and Vampire Diaries anyway. I'll just roll my eyes at you now and pretend you don't exist. You didn't even address the spying on the comments section too much coz its true, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. You always write paragraphs on everything except that, lmao

      TheTails SpeedTheTails Speed26 dögum síðan
    • @TheTails Speed The guy who directed Vampire Diaries directed Fate, not Ignio Straffi, so yeah, they should have just made it their own original series, and not have involved Winx in it if they wanted a dark, depressed story. Kinda hypocritical since you also use your precious time in answering back not just on my comment, but everybody here who said they didn't like Fate, lol. So yes, do get a life and stop spying on the comments section here, lmao.

  • Give Musa her music powers back and give us tecna and flora....this is just not acceptable at this point.... targeted for young adults this show had every aspect of a teen show like Riverdale

    Miki KhMiki Kh27 dögum síðan
    • @Miki Kh Bruh music can manipulate people's emotions. Musa doesn't have to cause sonic blasts in order to go up against someone. Also her mind powers is even more powerful than just music powers. She can distort reality, she can use sonic waves against enemies with her mind AND she can manipulate enemies if she's able to reach her full capabilities. Open your mind dude.

      Love PersonafiedLove Personafied26 dögum síðan
    • @Love Personafied lol what how can a mind fairy do that? can she make sonic blasts and music waves...Stella I agree makes sense because she controls light and she can use that

      Miki KhMiki Kh26 dögum síðan
    • Musa can easily get music powers from her mind powers, just like Stella's light powers can camoflauge her and render her invisible. The character even mentioned that she used to be a dancer. Don't rush things if it's not needed just yet.

  • The special effects and CGI of the series are actually very good (with Bloom's transformation as only exception). Worldbuilding (especially as regards the lack of technological differences between the Earth and the Otherworld) and the characterization with following strange or embarrassing lines of dialogue (manspleaning? Really???) not so much instead.

  • This is the most important post you will ever read. Every one of us has sinned against God. We’ve lied, we’ve stolen, we’ve sinned sexually, and we’ve taken His name in vain; which makes us liars, thieves, fornicators and blasphemers.. Yet this is only four of our many transgressions. The problem is, we can never ‘outweigh’ our sin with good deeds because God is perfect in Holiness, meaning his standard is beyond our reach. He is also perfect in Justice, meaning, he will bring EVERY sin to light. The punishment for our sin is death, and Hell; a place of Eternal Fire, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Fortunately God is also perfect in Love, so 2000 years ago, Jesus Christ left his throne in heaven and came to this earth. While here, he lived a perfectly righteous life, only to take the punishment that We deserved; Our sinless creator became Our sin, and endured a gruesome death on a cross for our sake. Right before he died, he said ‘it is finished’.. meaning, the debt for our sins has been paid in full. And on the third day, he defeated death and rose from the grave. So now, we can go free from the wrath of God’s judgement not by earning it, but rather, as a free gift of grace.. Except gifts can either be accepted or rejected. So this is what you must do in response; Humbly admit to God that you have sinned against him, and through gratitude in the sacrifice of his son, repent (turn away) from your old way of life. Then, confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord, your savior, and the ruler of your life from this moment forward (Romans 10:9) . Do these things, and you will be saved. If you do so sincerely, God will grant you a new heart which no longer finds comfort in sin. He will also grant you Eternal life in his presence; The greatest pleasure on earth doesn’t even come close to what God is preparing for believers in the afterlife . You’ve been informed; Now the choice is yours. What you do with this information will determine where you spend ETERNITY, meaning, this is the single most critical decision you will EVER make; And all of us here, whether believer or atheist, know deep down that every last word here is true . Jesus Christ awaits YOU this very moment. Don’t even think about sleeping tonight until you surrender your life to him, because your tomorrow isn’t guaranteed.. And as it is written (Hebrews 9 : 27); ‘It is appointed unto man ONCE to die, but after this, THE JUDGMENT’. All glory, honor and praise to Lord Jesus Christ.
