Reminder: Contest


This is a reminder that the character contest is still on going. If you want to participate, here's the guidelines:

"What to do:
  • Invent a Winx Club fan character! It can be a fairy, witch, specialist, etc.
  • Come up with a name for him or her.
  • Design what he or she looks like and make a picture of him or her.
  • Include a bio if you want. Make him or her anything you want! Just be creative! [By the way, just don't make a novel! This might as well be a fanfic contest if it is.]
  • Send your character (picture included) to WinxFairies.Site@gmail.com
  • [Deadline:]Only the first 20 will be accepted!"

If you're still confuse about how to do this, you can look at the entries already submitted or here are some unrelated pieces to give you an idea: example 1, example 2 and example 3.

If you have any questions or concerns, please type it in the comments section.

Ground Rules

I posted this more than a year ago. I cannot believe that I have to post this again. I am immeasurably disappointed.
"I am depressed to write this but there has been ongoing hostility in the comments. I am going to note some ground rules along with the ones that Stella/Phoebe has written on the sidebar. Everyone should have read these already but no one seems to be getting the point.

Rules:

1) You do not have to use your real name when commenting, but it is absolutely forbidden to use the name of another human;whether it be your best friend, sister, or a total stranger. If you find a case of impostures, please contact me.

2) Language used in the comments must be appropriate for all ages. All comments including words and/or phrases that may be offensive in any way will immediately be removed and all other content disregarded.

3) Comments, though helpful ways of expressing opinions, will not be used as a means to communicate with me. To contact me, use my email address: WinxFairies.Site@gmail.com

4) Comments are not to be used as a way to talk to your friends. Please respect other viewers and instead use other instant messaging methods.

Furthermore:

1) Comments must stay on topic. [If you want to talk about your cat that has absolutely nothing with the Winx Club, go to the forum.]

2) You cannot speak for others. I do not care if you are that person's friend in real life--you cannot and must not speak for them. No exceptions on any of the blogs. This is a repeat of Rule 1) from above. I cannot make this any clearer.

3) Everyone has the right to an opinion. It's called freedom of speech. [You are also entitled to the freedom of silence.]

4) Not everyone will share the same opinion.

5) Be open to diversity of opinions and criticism. If you can't take it, you're welcome to leave. Just press the back button (Backspace) or close the window (Alt+F4).

6) No one is right or wrong unless proven with substantiated evidence.

7) Comments must not encourage hostility. Do not go asking for a war over the internet. It is useless and a waste of your time as well as a waste of ours and other people's time. [Especially for Phoebe. Do you wish to make her life difficult? If not, don't do it.]

If you are incapable of adhering to the these guidelines on any of the blogs and if even one comment steps out of line, you are welcome to leave this blog and never comment on it again. No exceptions.

Lastly, the Winx Club is a fictional universe. There is no point in getting riled up over non-existent characters."

More Movie Pictures

From Winx Fashion:
(Stella's dress is surprisingly plain compared to Layla's.)

(Why is Layla's hair straight and flat in the last picture? Shouldn't it be wavy and big?)

Movie Site Update and Animation Preview

The movie below is not a movie preview but an animation preview to show the quality. It kind of sounds like they are describing an IMAX theatre. Thanks to Harriet who noticed that the Winx Club are speaking in English.



Notice the title "Land of Magic" below.






The official site for the movie as been updated.

Pictures by Ivan Kuzin of Winx-Fashion.


Translation of synopsis:

"Alfea celebrates the beginning of a new school year when the party is interrupted by the Trix. The Winx Club, minus Bloom, are tasked with fixing the confusion caused by the Trix who have ruined the party and stolen a powerful and mysterious object. [Uh, the Codex, the Agador Box, Alfea's spells and books? This is getting ridiculous. They seriously need to hire some goblins from Gringotts or something.] Meanwhile, Bloom is on Domino, experiencing the best moments of her new life as a princess. She has finally found her parents and Sky has asked to marry her.

But not everything that glitters is gold, the three Ancestral Witches in fact have come back to haunt Stella, Layla, Tecna, Musa, Flora and Bloom. [Where's Roxy?] Moreover, Erendor, Sky's father, forbids his son to marry the princess of Domino. A dark secret lies in the kingdom of Eraklyon and now that Sky is the ruler of the kingdom, he knows it. [Oh, this sounds juicy.]

Meanwhile, with the help of Trix, the Ancestresses are able to find the Tree of Life that holds the positive and negative balance of magic. With a powerful spell, they break this balance and suck the all hte positive energy in Magix, Bloom and her friends find themselves powerless and forced to confront again the Witches.

Will our heroes find a way to restore balance in the magical dimension? And what is the secret that keeps Sky and Bloom apart? Will their love survive this new obstacle?

Between magic and comedy, the Winx Club return to fly."




(Bloom looks cross-eyed. Ugh. Bloom looks like a child compared to Sky, who looks like a real adult. I feel sorry for Kiko.)

The horse's name is...


The horse's name is Peg (short for Pegasus?), according to this. Here's the second page.

Peg is a gift from Miriam and Oritel to Bloom.

So how many pets is that for Bloom? Kiko the possibly magical and/or pixie pet rabbit, Ronron the pixie pet cat from the first movie, Belle the fairy pet sheep from season four and now, Peg the white horse.

(For anyone who reads the comics will notice the irony in the last statement. White horse--White Horse Cafe. No?)

4kids Release Dates from Wikipedia

Thanks to Red Fountain Senior for the tip-off! :D

Here's a screenshot from the List of Winx Club Episodes page on Wikipedia. I know that Wikipedia can't alway be trusted, but according to this info, we won't have to wait very much longer for the 4kids version of season 4!

This screenshot is from the 4kids page on Wikipieda. For episodes, it lists 104, which would include the season 4 episodes. It also says that the series will "continue in Summer 2010"! Could this be true? We'll have to wait and see!

Who IS This?

*Thanks gmaercatgirl and Kiku, his name is Karel and he's from the comics. Haha, maybe I should get around to reading those? xD

This is one of the avatar choices on Winx Club Online... but who IS it? You'd think that the creators of the website would have a Nabu avatar as the sixth Specialist avatar, but just like all the other official sites, Nabu isn't included. I wonder what's up with that?

Maybe this guy will be a new specialist in the show. Roxy doesn't have a boyfriend yet, could this guy be her love interest in Season 5?

"The Secret" Revealed and the Last Apperance of Saladin?

Warning: Spoilers below.

Marie from WinGx posted the infamous secret:

Erendor - Sky's father is a man tormented by guilt. He abandoned Oritel after promising him that he would protect the kingdom of Domino (Sparks). This betrayal took care that the Ancestral Witches could destroy the planet of Erendor's best friend, Oritel. Now Erendor lives in remorse. When Sky decides to marry Bloom, Elendor forbids Sky to keep on seeing Bloom and tells him the sad story. Sky's father hopes this will relieve him of his guilt. Elendor promises to protect Bloom and regain Oritel's friendship, respect and the love of everyone.


BloomXLove posted this on Winx Club Dreams (translated from Italian):

Fantastic news for you all on the second film. Finally, not so great.

Give and confirm to my correspondent at the Rainbow SPA

In the film "Magical Adventure," we're going to have to say goodbye to an important character in the series.

Indeed, the principal Saladin we have not seen season 4, ferrasti his last appearance in the second movie.

I do not know what is coming, but we will see more dice the end of this film.

Here and this news is 100% true!


Granted, neither of these are officially confirmed and are still classified as rumors.

Magic Adverture: Plot Summary

Thanks to Una di Noi for posting this! Also from Impero Dei Cartoni


Alfea celebrates the inauguration of the new school year when the party is interrupted by Icy, Darcy and Stormy, the perfidious Trix. The Winx, without Bloom, are forced to remedy the confusion created by the witches who, having ruined the party, steal a powerful and mysterious object. Meanwhile, Bloom is on Domino, experiencing the best moments of her new life as a princess. She finally found her parents, and Sky asks her to marry him. But not all that glitters is gold; the Three Ancestral Witches, in fact, come back to haunt Stella, Layla, Tecna, Musa, Flora and Bloom. Moreover, Erendor, Sky’s father, forbids his son to marry the princess of Domino. A dark secret lies in the realm of Eraklyon. Meanwhile, with the help of Trix, the Ancestresses are able to find the Tree of Life that holds the positive and negative balance of magic. With a powerful spell, they break this balance and suck all the good energy from Magix. Bloom and her friends find themselves powerless and forced to again confront the witches, the symbol of all evil. Will our heroes find a way to restore balance in the Magical Dimension? And what is the secret that separates Sky and Bloom? Will their love survive this new test? Between hilarious gags and moments of real magic, the Winx return to fly.


Well, this is good news! The Trix are FINALLY back! 

You'll notice that they mention that infamous "secret" again... I'm sure I'm not the only one dying to know what it is! 

Movie Preview Updates and Third Movie?


Winx Club Avventura Magica will be released October 29, 2010.

The ten-minute previews of the film can be seen at the Giffoni Film Festival (Rassegna del Cinema per i Ragazzi) from July 18 to 31 and at the Fiuggi Film Festival from July 24 to 31. The Giffoni Film Festival is the possibly the largest children's film festival in the Europe and maybe even the world. (This means that the Winx Club is getting major international acclaim.)

This article says:

"Il film esce nei cinema il 29 ottobre 2010, e già si annuncia la possibilità di un terzo film a creare una trilogia." (The film comes out October 29 2010, and already it is announced the possibility of a third film to create a trilogy.)
Isn't that a little premature? The second film has not even come out and the rumours about season five have been confirmed and a third film is on its way. The production team must be working over time for us.

And what do they mean by 'trilogy?' Does that mean that after the third movie, if it does come out, that the Winx Club will end? You cannot have more than three movies in a trilogy because that is the definition of a trilogy.

Still no news about Roxy though.

(Before you go crazy, the above picture is a screen shot from the end of the first movie.)

Rainbow Magic Land: In Construction!

These pictures were sent in to Michael's Winx Club from Michelle M, and are of Rainbow Magic Land, which is the theme park made by the creators of Winx Club! I didn't realize that they'd started construction already...

The theme park is going to be amazing when it's finished, and it will feature a HUGE model of Alfea school! Awesome, huh?


Official Wallpapers

I know the wallpapers for sale on the Winx Club Official Website are kinda huge rip-off at fifty coins for one wallpaper, so I went and got ripped off so you wouldn't have to ^.^ I bought all these yesterday in the highest quality. Feel free to take them for yourselves! (Clicking on them should make them full-sized)

Season 5 Transformation?

Credit goes to BuizelCream for finding these!  Images by analadygaga. Thanks to analadygaga for the HQ images!
There's been some buzz that images of the brand-new season 5 transformations were released! As much as I'd like to believe that, these images are fanart only. :(

You know, aside from the wings, they look like they could be the real thing. I like Stella's most, it almost looks like it could be real!
