The Winx back to the cinema at Christmas 2010
New animated film for the Winx Club was born from the imagination of Iginio Straffi
The fashion-Winx fairies are increasingly unstoppable: after the movie Winx-The Secret of the Lost Kingdom, and simultaneously with the broadcast on Rai Due TV episodes of the fourth season, the Rainbow Srl announces the debut film of a new film dedicated to Bloom and her friends, planned for Christmas 2010.
The audience to which this new product is targeted animation will be broader than before, more mature: the project, directed by series creator Iginio Straffi, is in fact working screenwriter Michael Wilson, one of the architects of the success of The Age glacial.
There are currently no advances on the title and the plot of the film, the main questions are related to the environment of the film, as the fourth television season, for the first time the wing Winx undertaken to test his powers on Earth and not in dimension magic into the form of school Alpheus.
The father of Winx also announced two film projects: the sequel to the first feature film, The Secret of the Lost Kingdom, will arrive in theaters by September 2010, while the most ambitious animated comedy written by Michael Wilson will see the light in Christmas 2010.
Bandai is working together with Rainbow S.p.A. to bring us a bunch of toys based on the animated series PopPixie. This will include dolls, plush figures, playsets, and more â all set to be ready for the fall of 2010. These toys are based on characters from the Winx Universe, continuing the success of that toon.
Rainbow is giving Lockette, Chatta, Tune, and the gang their own series called Pop Pixie (not to be confused with the manga Pixie Pop). There will be fifty-two, 13- to 15-minute episodes, so it seems itâll be a mini-series rather than a fully-developed show like Winx Club. The premiere date is still unclearâone source I read said it would be in spring 2010, another said fall, and yet another said the first twenty-five episodes would air in the spring then the other twenty-seven in the fall. Weâll find out as it gets closer.
Bandai Europe will produce the seriesâ toy line, set to be released next year in the fall.
You may be thinking now, âWhy are the pixies getting their own show?â An article for License! Global magazine quoted Iginio Straffi as saying:
As soon as the pixies appeared on screens they instantly became popular with children, achieving excellent results both in terms of viewer numbers and product sales. For this reason, I decided to bring these cute mini fairies to life and give them their own show and a licensing program tailor-made around the brand.
So, the short answer: kids love the pixies. No surpriseâthe anime chibi look always works. Will their own bonded pixies become the Winxâs greatest rivals? Regardless, it looks like Disneyâs Fairies will have more competition. Get out of the ring, Tinkerbell! spring 2010
