Am I the only one who can't stand this? Stella sounds a little like Mitzy from the 4kids/FoXBoX version. And did anyone else notice that in the 3rd clip, the names Stella picks for the group are completely different from the 4kids/FoxBoX version? I don't like Musa's voice either or Flora's. But I do like Techna's and Mike and Vanessa's. I sort of like Bloom's.~Kairi~
I am so psyched for Monday's premiere! I love Musa's voice, it fits her great, with the attitude. I didn't hear much of Tecna's, but I like it, almost as much as her 4Kids voice. I wonder if Aisha will have a light voice like RAI or deeper like 4Kids.
@ Kairi: The 4Kids version isn't the original one, you know. So it's not a good comparison. In the Italian version (original), she said "Stella 5," "Wonder Girls", and...something else I didn't hear. =) In the Cinelume/RAI English dub, it was "Stella 5", "Super 5," or "Airy Fairies."
I love everything about these except Stella's voice, which I'm sure I'll get used to. I'm noticing that they're keeping most of the Rai dialog (thank god they removed that "pulling my leg" comment by Bloom.), which is awesome!Also, season 4 music. Love.
I really love the new Nick's version! It's because of the bumpy music, the bright graphics, and the new voices that I'm starting to get used to, makes the show even more lively!
AWESOME JOB PHOBE AS ALWAYS. I wonder what the theme song will be?
I can't stand the fact that they kept the "What does Winx mean?" rational the same. I thought that that moment would have been a great moment to explain it. (For reference, they did explain what it means in the comic.)
I don't really like change much, so this thing with all the new voices is really rubbing me the wrong way, and what are they going to do about the ogre part where he rips bloom's jeans to sniff her out? Not she's wearing the season 2 outfit with a skirt. I guess I just miss the old graphics :(
Stella's voice honestly made me wince the first time I heard it. It's not a bad voice, and I'm not dissing Amy Gross, it's just a bit high-pitched for my taste.The animation style is killing me for some reason. It looks...amazing, but it's so different than what I'm used to from Winx. I guess it'll take me some time to adjust to both the new animation and the voices.Not half bad, one day to go, we'll see what happens.
They sound so stiff, in the other versions they sound like great actors. Not so much on the Nivk version. Anyways, 1 day left! Can't wait to see the Red Fountain boys ! I think that they changed the outfits because they were unappropriate for the young age group.
still can't decide my feelings for it. musa's voice is too nasily (spelling?) so I guess the actor is still used to voicing tracy XD
Got my opinions listed (as usual):-Animation is awesome but it doesn't mean I don't like the old style-Bloom's voice is better than I thought-Stella's and Musa's voice got more annoying through more clips so I hope the actresses go a little less overboard -I wish they kept a little more of the original dialogue-I think the characters act more natural (how any real person would act if any of this did happen)-Bloom and Flora look prettier somehow but the rest look... worse than the original (Musa I feel should have darker eyes but other than that I don't know what's wrong with them)-I'm glad they kept the dark blue brown-eyed Kiko and not that creepy season 4 light blue yellow-eyed Kiko that literally DID freak me out a bitAs for Layla, (should get used to calling her Aisha) I think Keke Palmer would make a great voice for Layla if she were to toughen her voice a bit to sound more sporty-ish. And as for Roxy, she should have a more childish and innocent voice and if they're using Nick and Disney stars, I think that either Miranda Cosgrove (if she kept her voice high and cheerful) or even Bridget Mendler (I think just her normal voice would fit Roxy).
@SashaAnd how are these outfits more appropriate (they're the Season 2 and 3 outfits, by the way)?
@ Sasha if they were inappropriate they would have just taken it off since 4kids dubbed it and the whole showing belly button is just the style in Italy.
hey!! winx is today!! i love everything so far! the voices, the animation, the songs. i think that we shouldn't be complaining. i mean haven't we all been waiting for this? for winx club to appear on tv! i think that we should all be thankful that this magical show is coming to nick. i know that everyone's saying that they don't like stella's voice, but i think it's fine. everytime Stella says, "Let's go!" it reminds me of the old energetic, happy Stella. Honestly, i think that Amy Gross is going to do a good job.
everything is good except Stella's voice and Musa's :P Stella's septor looks like a play toy, the original was better because it was simple and fit for a princess. They should seriously stop naming their powers, it pisses me off that they sound like pokemon trainers shouting out attack names. :P
lawl truuue. I don't know, but maybe for the next season they'll have different clothes.
Well I'm glad that Stella isn't saying that mouthful of the sun and moon fairy because Stella's attacks are all just sun attacks because the moon is only reflecting sun light so the shining sun fairy fits her better so Nick is doing a little bit of science with Stella by calling her The Fairy of The Shining Sun, hopefully Stella doesn't get her tongue tied saying that when she introduces herself
OMG! It's horrible! Stella's voice is better if you hear a few, but when you hear more, you'll see, her voice just like Mitzi (but more sweet!). They think their just use the voice of the star like Keke? And about "Aisha", why their change her name? "Aisha" is offical name of Layla in the Italia version, but why the Wikia write "other version call her Layla?" (even they edit). And about the stupid Winx Wikia. I don't know what happend to Roxy13 but at first write it by Rai version, after that write it by Nick version. Why they don't write it by 4Kids version at first? I really don't like, I mean I hate Nick. At first I thought they'll do better than 4Kids but not. They're worse! And poor Knut, they draw him like a MONSTER!!! Nick do not learn any lessons about the fail of 4Kids. Whatever they do, I'll watch the Rai English!
The problem is, I don't think there will BE a Rai English for season 5 and on.
The winx premiere on Nick was just hard to watch. I was trying to keep myself from comparing Nick's version to the Rai or 4Kids versions. I also noticed they left out a few plot lines, most notably the time when Brandon and Prince Sky switched identities/names, and when Bloom first transformed. Oh! Also, the winx called their original transformation "charmix" but they didn't have their charmix accessories. The main thing that annoyed me to no end, was the voices. I don't really mind that to me the voices don't match their character ( well I mind but I'm trying to get passed it). My main problem was the actually voice acting quality. It sounded so half-hearted, and it made the dialogue sound corny. I felt like I was watching sailor moon almost. Just the way they said their attacks sounded like a 5 year old in the body of a 16 year old. (Also, a few of the errors that were originally found in the animation were resolved with the full viewing, just saying.)

I agree with HeavenlyQueen. It was bad to watch and in my mind rethinking how they are just taking out pieces of the episode plot. They just put together episodes 1,2,7 and 10 all together in an hour and cut a lot of stuff that adds to the story line. Plus the intro song was horrible even if they were using the 4th season song they made it even worse and their transformation song sucks too! Nick showed Winx Club Rai on their counterpart stations why not here? They messed up big time! The old school transformation is still cool! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7qm-5Xmgl0&feature=relatedRising Sun sounds better than not Shining Sun:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcmuZCbjEvY&feature=related
Yay, negativre comments! I´m not afraid to spill my opinion!First: I haven´t seen the full special. Estonian girl here.I don´t like Stella´s scepter or her voice.I like Bloom´s voice.I don´t like Tecna´s.I no longer hate the new animation, I´m starting ton like it, but personally, sometimes less is more. i´m thinking about colours. I mean did you see Stella´s eyeshadow??I understand why they changed Stella´s powers - good idea.I still don´t fully understand why they re-draw it. WHY ON EARTH they caled original transformation Charmix. Oh I liked the transformation itself actually.
Saw the special. They left out a lot. I still don't have an opinion on it. To me, there are goods and bads about the Nick version.
Parts I'm glad they took outThe ripping of bloom's clothesThe lies about Sky and Brandon and Bloom's impostureThe explanation of Bloom's impostureAnything that was impertinent to the plotlineMusa's voice sounds kinda like Rai's mitzi is something i don't like eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeewParts I likeThe Transforms are better Flora's winx sequence finally has wingsPalladium's voice sounds more like a boy
@Anonymous: Why don't you leave your real name? Scare? Oh... Whatever, because, you know, even have 4Kids, we still have Rai ver, and the Nick's subs/dubs (I don't know about it carefully!) was made from the subs/dubs made from Rai (by Cinelumé!)... So whatever if there is a stupid Nick, I don't think NO SEASON 5 ON RAI VERSION!
@The Oblivious Prattler Yes, I know which one is the original winx. But I grew up on the 4kids one so I call that one the original. As far as it goes for original in America.~Kairi~
@ uocmo_hong 12 do you not recall the press release that said RAI WILL BE WORKING WITH NICK! so guess what THIS IS THE RAI VERSION but it's been AMERICANIZED AND THE FIRST SEASONS HAVE BEEN RECAPPED. SEASON 5's RAI ENGLISH WILL BE DONE WITH THE HELP OF NICK ITSELF so GET OVER IT! RAI AND NICK ARE WORKING TOGETHER. ALSO DON'T INTIMIDATE THOSE WHO PREFER TO KEEP THEMSELVES NAMELESS
i love this show, i watched all the seasons but i kinda miss the 4kids version but i dont have anything against the RAI version its just as good
The only thing is, I think they shouldn't have changed how Bloom earned her MagicWinx/Charmix, whatever.
@Aisha n Amentia no saving kiko was a better time for her first transform, it was more serious then a ring and eggs.
I like it and all.....but it's just Musa's voice when she said " The what?" It made her sound nerdy. Sorry Musa. :/ I do like the rest of the voices though I like Musa's voice too but it is just that one part.
The theme song tune is off of S4. Just listen to it!! Listen to S4 then the Nickelodeon version.- Lizzie (Elizabeth) =)
Well the thing I'll have to get used to, like most Americans who watch winx is calling Layla, *ugh* Aisha,Layla flows better-brandonstella
stella's voice is just argh so annoying before it was perfect! and bloom's voice nah dont like it! musa sounds better though :P
