English release dates! (Approximates)

While surfing Wikipedia and various other Winx sites, I was able to figure out the most probable release dates for Winx Club Season 4. Then my predictions became more certain as I found a site (sorry, I forgot what it is :P) that said the release dates would be around then.

Here they are:

The RAI English version of Season 4 will probably release around August/September 2010. This is because they will need to record the voices, then add them to the video, and do all the various voice/video editing. They will also need to record the english transformation songs and themes.

Also, with Season 1, 2 and 3, the RAI english version released about 6 months to one year after the Italian release so it'll probably be the same for Season 4.

The 4Kids Season 4 will probably release later (like around November/December 2010) because they don't have to just do what RAI does, they cut some scenes and change the storyline around a little bit to make it more appropriate for kids (and we all know the amount of romantic drama in Season 4 ;)) They'll also probably cut the Believix, Sophiex and Lovix transformations like they did with Enchantix and replace the music with an instrumental.


PS: In Dubai, the Secret of the Lost Kingdom is releasing next week in cinemas! I don't know whether this is worldwide...

  1. August or September? Oh man. I wanted it to come out sooner. Ah well, at least that sounds better than the 4kids dub:)

  2. 4kids is better because in rai english it doesn't match the characters and the voices is horrible. rai voices:
    Bloom- squeaky voice
    Stella- 40 yrs old voice
    Flora - not sweet like
    musa- lame
    layla- musa's voice
    valtor- monster voice
    the trix- goody goody
    pixies- plain voice
    faragonda - granny voice
    griffin- faragonda voice

    it's true but 4kids voices is so much beter and the episodes. watching rai eng looks like it's been made 20yrs ago

  4. haha :P
    Well, actually I prefer the RAI english voices...I guess it just depends on what you start watching first :P

  5. (to Anonymous)It's true that 4Kids has better voices, but it's also true that 4Kids destroys everything and I HATE 4Kids! They suck so much!

  6. Ah-greed WinxClubRobert...except I love the RAI voices

  7. Aww, I love them! :D I guess everyone has different opinions though :)

  8. It's too bad it will take 11 months for the 4kids version.:(

    ReplyDelete
  9. I'll admit I like the 4kids voices better than Rai English too, but that's it. I don't like the 4kids edits too much. Sure, they make some things a bit sweeter (like scene with Layla and Musa in episode 15 of season 2) and a bit more understandable at times, but really, 4kids screws up a lot of things.

    ReplyDelete
  10. But I got used to the Rai English voices, so I guess they're no big deal.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Woah, wait, 4kids? There IS no 4kids season 4. No one from 4Kids has even shown any interest in dubbing the show, especially considering that there would be some MAJOR plot holes without a 4Kids movie. So, no, scratch out the whole November/December thing because there's no way that they'll even be able to dub the season (and if they do, they've got some work cut out for them)

    ReplyDelete
  12. BTW to all you guys saying that RAI sucks or 4Kids sucks, it's OK to show your opinion, but could you please do it in a more... what's the word... sophisticated way?

    Actually, that's not necessarily true. When I first saw Winx I watched the 4Kids version, and I watched that for a pretty long time (because I thought that was all there was) but when I found RAI English, I started watching that and after a while I decided that I like RAI better. So maybe it's kind of the one you watch the most (I've watched 2 seasons in RAI plus the movie and 1 in 4Kids although I've seen that season twice)

  14. OK, last comment, I promise :P

    I totally ADORE Chatta's RAI English voice!

  15. @harmayna

    haha

    ReplyDelete
  16. WHOA! I was like, OMG so many comments :P
    ok, um...yeah u r right...but I think they may dub it.
    Next week on Thursday, the Secret of the Lost Kingdom is coming out here! But I think it's RAI english

  17. Don't trust Wikipedia so much. It can be an anonymous IP user's imaginations, not official ones.

    ReplyDelete
  18. (to Stars_and_Fire)I do like the Rai English voices too.
    (to Anonymous 4)Don't forget the scene with Elle/L and Mitzi from episode 16 of season 2, it's also better in 4Kids.
    (to Harmayna)What do you mean by sophisticated way?

    ReplyDelete
  19. whoiam: Wikipedia did not have the Season 4 airing dates, those were calculated by me and then confirmed by another site! Wikipedia had the season 1, 2 and 3 airing dates which allowed me to calculate

    ReplyDelete
  20. I doubt 4kids will pick up season four, simply because they have shown no interest in it at all, or the movie for that matter, and the second season three dvd's release date keeps getting pushed back. I imagine that RAI have dubbed quite a few of the episodes now, since they have the believix song in english and the opening, and a list of the names for the new season.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Yes true. Well Anonymous, next week 'The Secret of the lost kingdom' is coming out in Dubai, (where I live) in cinemas! I'll see if its in RAI english or 4Kids

    ReplyDelete
  22. I at first loved 4Kids, but then when surfing the web I saw that they were a dub! I had watched all the seasons and they were wrong.
    :( But look on the bright side-I know most of the things I need to know about the Rai English. You know the changes. Still, I can't believe 4Kids would do that changing stuff!
    >:(

  23. @WinxClubRobert

    What I meant was like, instead of saying this:

    "OMG Tecna's 4kids voice sucks her British accent sounds so stupid"

    you could say something like this:

    "I don't really like Tecna's 4kids voice. I don't think her accent suits her character"

    See what I mean?

  24. No fighting please!...Though I didn't think u were :P

    ReplyDelete
  25. (to Stars_and_Fire)I was not fighting. Actually, I like both English versions.

  26. Like I said, I didn't think you were

  27. HY ARE ALL OF YOU SAYING THE 4KIDS SUCK 4KIDS DESTROYED EVERYTHING. YOU SHOULD BE SORRY. YOU SHOULD BE THANKFUL THAT 4KIDS AIRED WINX CLUB ON TV OR OTHERWISE WE WOULD HEARD OF WINX CLUB.
    WELL I LIKE 4KIDS BECAUSE I LIKE THEIR VERSION AND THEIR THEMESONG. ME AND MY FOSTER SISTERS ALWAYS DANCE TO IT.
    I AM NOT A RAI- HATER BUT THE ACTORS ARE OLD AND THEY SHOULD DO A VOICE THAT ACTUALLY SOUNDS LIKE THE WINX ARE TEENAGERS .
    MAYBE ALL YOU TEENAGERS LIKE IT BUT YOUNGER CHILDREN MAY NOT LIKE IT AND PREFER THE 4KIDS DUB.
    SO IT'S NO PROBLEM BOTH VERSIONS ARE GREAT. MOST CARTOONS ARE EITHER ITALIAN,JAPANESEOR FRENCH. BUT I ALSO LIKE THE ITALIAN VERSION.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I MEANT TO SAY WE WOULDN'T HEARD OF WINX CLUB
    OR THEIR EXISTENCE

  29. @Anonymous: Please, calm down! We all understand that everyone has different views! And it's only the people in North America that watch that! Practially everyone else watchs RAI!

  30. Australians also got the 4Kids dub, as did South Africa for the first season. The UK (only Britain? I know Whales doesn't) airs the 4Kids version.

    Odds are 4Kids would have said they had acquired the rights to S4 if they had them. Guess we have to wait for them to announce their fall line-up.

    ReplyDelete
  31. @gamercatgirL: Ok! I actually thought the UK aired the RAI version. NZ got the RAI version and so did India and Pakistan

    ReplyDelete
  32. India got an Indian dub, although they might have used the English Magic Winx and theme song music. They have their own Enchantix song.

    The UK is confusing. The RAI English dub is sometimes called the "UK dub", even though they don't air it and it isn't dubbed there, it's dubbed in Quebec. Whales airs their own version (in Welsh)

  33. (to Anonymous 7)One, I live in Romania, not in USA or UK. Two, the Romanian version of Winx Club is based on the original Italian one, not on the 4Kids one. Three, I rarely watch the 4Kids version. Four, we have Internet, so we don't need to watch the 4Kids version to know Winx Club.
    (to gamercatgirl)I heard the Enchantix in Hindi, and it's OK. Sadly, it's the only song from the Hindi dub that we can find.
    Sorry for talking too much.

    ReplyDelete
  34. @gamercatgirl: Uh actually, I SAW the RAI english dub in India...and they enchantix song was actually the same

    ReplyDelete
  35. I think they air both versions but in different areas. Trust me, there is a Hindi dub that uses the Hindi Enchantix dub.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I usually don't trust wikapedia but it said the 4 kids version would air September 25, 2010

  40. Actually, I don't hate the 4Kids dub, I hate only 4Kids.

  41. what? august or november? i cant wait that long!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I usually watch the Rai-English dub. I used to watch 4kids but it taking so long and I don't want to wait so long, so I thought I would watch Rai English dubs. Well, it's my opinion.

  44. I'm glad the Rai English is to come out, though I just wish it was sooner. Saying that, I doubt I would view it via the usual YouTube method, which is terrible, but have to wait until it comes to DVD.

    Luckily I have seasons 1&2 on DVD with the Rai English dub track from MHE, so I have been able to throw my 4Kids DVDs onto the bonfire (4Kids must never darken the skys again with their tripe version of this great series), it's just a pity the 3rd season DVDs don't have the Rai English dub on them... asides from one 10 disc selection from another distributor which is EXTREMELY hard to get a hold of.

    Anyways, great news of the dub!
