Keke Palmer to voice act on Winx Club

Thanks to Ella of Winx 4 Life for finding this information.

According to NickandMore.com, Keke Palmer ("Akeelah and the Bee", "True Jackson, VP") will be voicing the character of "Keisha" in Nickelodeon's dub of Winx Club. The article states:

In addition, she will record this year the voice of Keisha, one of the magical fairies in the Nickelodeon animated action and fantasy series “Winx Club,” a hugely popular franchise with young girls worldwide that will debut in 2012 with new episodes in the U.S. Set in the mystical dimension of Magix where three schools educate modern fairies, witches and supernatural warriors from around the universe, “Winx Club” first aired in Italy six years ago and became an international phenomenon.

A lot of theories have been put forward on who Keisha is, including that it's just a misspelling of Aisha, a new name for Layla, or a completely new character.

Palmer did voice work in the direct-to-DVD film "Tortoise vs. Hare".

  1. Nooo! I hate her.

    Also.. they're naming a Winx character KIESHA? I pray it isn't pronounced like Ke$ha, otherwise I'm going to have difficulty taking her seriously.

    1. Yes, you complete dunce, because there is actually a place in the world where the I in Keisha is ignored.

  2. New...Character...*eye twitch*
    I just can't see Keke voicing a kid cartoon. Something tells me Nickelodeon is going to MAJORLY screw up Winx (just like we all feared).

  4. I hope she's not a new character please no new character 7 is enough or what will Roxy be friends with Keisha and it means there are still 6 winx or Roxy will not return for season 5 (crossing fingers that she will return) and this time they will help Keisha like they did with Roxy. And they better not change her name thats her name worldwide expect Italy. Please I hope it not a new member or name changing.

  5. Keisha might not be a main character, just like Mirta.

  6. True. She could be a witch at Cloud Tower.

    I think that she'll be a new character in season 5, but not a new Winx or misspelled Layla. Maybe she'll be Roxy's friend who, like Mirta, is kind of an "honorary Winx."

    Oh, btw, I might post as LnA sometimes when I'm lazy.

  8. I really hope she won't be a new Winx! I mean, eight members is just way too much!
    *sighs*
    Nickelodeon, please don't kill Winx...

  9. In all honesty, Roxy isn't technically a Winx Club member. I could go on forever about this, but I won't. It could be just like one of those filler episodes/plot/arc things that series tend to do. Like Keisha could need their help or something. We'll probably find out more when we get more information.

  10. Another character?? Hopefully not another winx.. They already have enough 8 would be too much... And I hope nickelodeon doesn't mess winx up

    ReplyDelete
  11. ANOTHER character? Like a few ppl above me said, it's getting a bit MUCH for that. I know that there's only been one new MAJOR character, Roxy, but still... I also hope that her name's just another spelling of Aisha, because that would be really dumb. Already, Layla/Aisha has two names, but three?! NOT COOL!
    Anyway, guys, we don't really KNOW if Nick's gonna mess up Winx, so, I guess only time will tell. Anyone know when exactly Season 5 and the second movie are coming out in English? CAN'T WAIT!!!!! <3
    AAAAAAAAAAH just talking about it makes me so excited!!!! :D

  12. She could be a major character for season 5. Like Mirta was for season 1 (my favorite season) and then she just made minor appearances in the show. ~Kairi~

  15. I heard that Roxy will be in the 5 season and there would be a new transformation. But I also think that this Keisha person is a new name for Layla. We will just have to what.

  21. I think she might be like Queen Morgana in season 4, so only a main character for the season.

  22. Anyways please stop fighting.!

  23. Wow this story is EVERYWHERE. and honestly layla's name is fine as it is. and 7 is already too much there is NO need for 8

    ReplyDelete
  24. The last thing Winx Club needs is more characters to put on our fan sites. :P
    I say leave the winx: Bloom, Flora, Musa, Layla, Stella & Tecna.

    I don't care. Anyways you might want to stop writing negative comments becuase they will be deleted by one of the writers it rule number 5 and 6 of the rules of this blog.
    "5.Respect everyone. Hateful messages (even ones directed at fictional characters, like Roxy or Bloom) will be deleted.
    6.Winx-Fairies has the right to delete any comments that it deems inappropriate in the blogs."

  28. It's amazing how the smallest things can cause an uproar.

    Forgive me for jumping in, but guys, you don't have to respond to someone's rudeness/immaturity.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I agree. I think that they should keep the original winX-Bloom, Stella, Flora, Musa and Techna with exception of Layla.

  30. Its possible that Kesha is being introduced as a frnd to Roxy because MAYBE Roxy is not gonna be a part of the Winx club so like Duh! she needs a frnd right??? I mean Mirta had Lucy (thats her name right?) or maybe she could be a new Villian *muahahaha* or..... someone like................. hey wasnt Salladin gonna go? So MAYBE she will be the new teacher there. U know a reason for hte GIRLS to get jealous *hehe hehe hehe he*
    K I currently have a MILLION reasons goin on in my head so Ill just stop here for now :D

  31. Whoa... whoa! Nickelodean? Like on TV? I kinda doubt it'd be watched.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think "Keisha" was a mistake; they most likely meant that she would be the new voice of Layla (Aisha could easily be misheard as Keisha)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I hope that won't be another character because I feel that Roxy was too much like a knock-off Bloom and didn't really have her own unique personality or definition. I'm keeping with the idea that it was a mispronounciation/mishearing or typo that carried through.

    I also don't think that we should immediately critisize Nickelodeon. Let's wait until we actually hear the new voices and see their dub before we pass judgement.

    ReplyDelete
  34. To be honest,Keisha's name kinda sounds like...that she is a cousin of Layla/Aisha.

  35. I like keke and i think it will be a good season for winx club:)
