First Fate: The Winx Saga trailer takes us to magic school
The live-action adaptation hits Netflix January 2021.
It’s The Winx Club like you’ve never seen them before.
Based on the Italian cartoon series, Fate: The Winx Saga brings the animated fairies to life as a coming-of-age live action adventure. Set at magical boarding school Alfea, the Netflix series follows the students as they learn how to master their powers while navigating all of the trappings of high school like romance and competition. It is an institution teaching magic after all, so there will also be dangers and monsters to contend with.
Watch the new trailer below.
The footage introduces Bloom, played by Abigail Cowen, who is described as having “the potential to be one of the most powerful fairies the world has ever known.” Cowen is joined by Hannah Van Der Westhuysen, Eliot Salt, Elisha Applebaum, and Precious Mustapha.
The Winx Club centers on a group of fairies who have elemental powers. The original animated series ran for eight seasons beginning in 2004. There have been a couple of animated shows, including Netflix’s World of Winx, but the new show is the first live-action version.
Fate: The Winx Saga premieres January 22 on Netflix.
