Season 5 Preview Clip (Update)

Uploaded by BelieveInWinx


I'm hoping that some of that is just placeholder art and will be improved upon release. I am not as excited as I thought I would be but I'm willing to give Rainbow the benefit of the doubt. So how do you feel about the new season being in CGI?

EDIT: (Oct 10) Much to everyone's relief, it has been confirmed in various places (such as Una di noi) that season 5 will be made in its traditional 2D cel-shaded form, and not 3D as shown in the preview clip above. Phew!

  1. I'm just going to say- when your 16-year-old brother comes in as you watch this and comments on it looking wrong, you KNOW you have a problem.

    That said, I love their new civilian outfits, especially Stella's, and I adore how the beginning of the trailer was Bloom talking to us via a "recording." I think both were very cute.

    I have a feeling they're going to pull a season 4 and feed us way too many plots again.

  2. I really like the new civilian outfits, but I am not to happy about the CGI part and the wings on the transformation is sort of freaky

  3. Well as Molly Q. said its gonna be season 5 as it is on start,not on ending ^^' So im happy. I feel like this trailer is just an tryout to see how do we Winx Fans reacts on it! So when they see that No one actually likes even IDEA of this CGI Animation,they are gonna re-make it(if they even started). I mean the premiere is like next year,so they have like plenty of time. (:

  4. Jovan, can you please be clearer about "Molly Q. said its gonna be season 5 as it is on start,not on ending"?

  5. I don't like CGI. For me Animation is more Magical. CGI just makes me feel like the want more boys interested in it. I will watch it either way, but the CGI Bloom didn't even look right in the face. Like you, I hope they work on this more.

  6. On Molly Quinn's Facebook page, she told fans "The latter part of the clip, I think, is pieced from other stuff. Until we go into the water that is how it looks on our screens. I like it all, even the merchandising they show bits of. We get to see the dolls soon. So cute." and afterward summed up, "It is my understanding that Season 5 will be like the first of the clip."

    So, it looks as if this may be for a third movie? Or perhaps just for the clip? I'm not totally sure, as she wasn't totally clear - but I'm beyond relieved that they (hopefully) will stick with the 2D style. <3

    Besides the animation style, I love the outfits. I so want Stella's dress. *_*

  7. Few! I was terrified the show would be CGI D: That would stink! The animation looks beautiful. The CGI XD not so much. I know it's probably a rough CGI but still. It kinda freaked me out D:

  8. is this season 5! i perfer the rai one and would like to see it's trailer

  9. Not watching season 5 if its in CGI, nnot watching the movies if they're in cartoon form. The shows should stay catoon form, movies CGi.
    Just my opinion. I liked it in the beginner till it fell apart when they showed Oritel and Marium in cartoon form.

  10. I never liked the CGI in the movies, and as a graphic design student, that is saying a lot. It doesn't have the same magic feeling that the 2d has. So the idea that they might make episodes in CGI is upsetting. And anyway, why would such a popular and successful need a make over? The original animation made them plenty of money.

  11. I'm VERY disappointed. First, there's no Roxy. I'd love to know how they're gonna explain that after hinting at her being a Winx. (She needs to study to get as strong as the others, perhaps?) Second, that awful CGI in the last part had better not be real. As The Muse and I were watching this, she kept saying, "Is that from a game?"

    ReplyDelete
  12. Please, god, don't let that CGI be for real. I mean, if Rainbow would put as much effort into story lines, dialouge, and filling plot holes, as they did comming up with cheap effects and marketing winx paraphnalia, NONE OF US WOULD HAVE ANYTHING TO COMPLAIN ABOUT!! I mean, I lived for the first season. The second and third ones were pretty good to, with the fourth being passable. Winx club always had so much more potential than this.

  13. Ok so I totally don't like the CGI at all. I like the classic cel animation better. Bloom doesn't even look like herself. As for the outfits love the civilian. I am so envious of Stella's outfit. As for the new transformation...I hate it. The wings are weird not what I expected and same with the outfits. IDK how its gonna turn out but I hope they work on it and change it...I'll still watch them even if it stay CGI but I won't be happy about it. I don't like the nick animation anyway but the CGI is worse. What happened to the classic RAI Winx Club I knew and loved now I don't recognize it anymore...its so sad and angers me...I think if they cant do it right its time to just say goodbye...

  14. The trailer could have really gotten its best if that CGI 3D would be in CGI 2D. Bloom looks so horrible when she's shocked in those 3D clips. And the new transformation looks creepy too, and the enemy is creepy as well. The Fairy Hunters were great enough.

    Comparing the 2D part of the trailer, it was really awesome!
    The new clothes were fantastic!
    Bloom's new appearance is really perfect. Nothing bad to comment.
    Musa's new appearance really gives of a wealthy career of being a singer.
    Tecna's new appearance gives of a right looks of a photographer, though she needs a photographer's bag for that.
    Stella is pretty as usual, but changing the boots into a simpler and more elegant sandals would be better, matching the color of her dress.
    Flora's new appearance is pretty too! I like her hair-style too!
    Aisha's new appearance....I kinda want her hair to be tied up, so it would be a better look for her as an exercise expertise.
    And I wish Roxy was there in that scene, even if she stays in Alfea College ;n;

  15. When you cannot even recognize the characters you have dearly loved for four seasons, you know its bad. The original 2D felt much, much more magical than any of the newer stuff. Their civilian outfits seem quite cute though. Personally, I think Rainbow is just trying to make Winx more 'marketable' to the extent that its pretty much lost all its original flavor.

    I wonder if they'll be doing a RAI dub of Winx. Hopefully, since I don't care for the Nickelodeon Dub.

  16. I was pretty impressed when I saw the new civilian outfits for the characters, but when I realised that the season is coming out in CGI, let's just say that I wasn't very impressed. I mean, Bloom doesn't look like Bloom (and I thought the movies were bad enough) and the graphics just lack the magic touch. The front of the trailer was good though, I really liked the animation. I just wished that they could maintain the entire draw-out graphics thing or the whole dynamics would change entirely.

  18. The 100%, Absolute, Real... fake Bloom XDOctober 3, 2011 at 12:54 PM

    I'm in love with everything about the animation preview, especially the civilian outfits. Aisha's a little too much for my tastes but I still like it. But what the heck? If they use the CGI animation, I swear I will be #@%$$!@ off.

    ReplyDelete
  19. So, basically everyone agrees the CGI is horrible?? :D

  20. Its looks like Rainbow is using the CG animation that Mattel used to make the newest Barbie movie. (Barbie: Princess Charm School, if you want to look it up.)
    And where is Roxy?

    ReplyDelete
  21. CGI animation is just a nonono, them condensing the plot is not that bad, but changing the animation is going over board.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Finally, I am getting used to the new voices. I wasn't really excited about reason 5, but now that it's here, I can't wait! I love the new outfits, but I can't get a good look at the new transformation because of the CGI and how fast it's going. I really hope the new season isn't CGI, please, just keep it to the movies.

    ReplyDelete
  23. No CGI for me please. I didn't like the movies, this season might be a downer for me :(


    PLEASE, 2D animations for me!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I don't like it too much. There's no Roxy, but I love the outfits.

    ReplyDelete
  25. it said the CG episodes are already in production in the trailer. >:C I say we spread the word and rebel and not watch it and MAYBE theyll go back to cartton.

  26. This is awsome. XD All we need now is for the boys to become pirates and we've got a Pirates of the Carribean series in the making. XD (jk)
    This is just an idea I got from one of Riven's lines in Magical Adventure "...I've always loved playing pirates...Arrr...". Seems like he'll have the chance to do that this time.

    No just no. The specialists do not need to be pirates. They're 'Specialists'.

  28. Kiku, I don't know how to contact you but on was on Molly's imdb page for a project of mine for school and found this. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2057885/ I don't know if its an episode title or a premiere. :C

  29. I really don't like the look of the CGI and I think most will agree that the look of Bloom in the recent poster release has amazing artwork and looks FINE as just normal cartoon animation and if anything better than the previous seasons! I was really excited upon seeing it as the artwork was so amazing but to find out it is going to be in CGI is disappointing and I feel will ruin the show.

    ReplyDelete
  30. @Kiku okay, i thought it was but i wasn't sure but if you click on the episodes link on Molly's page it shows episode listing for season 4 and 5.

    Guys, they just said there's not gonna be 3D! Amen!(tia XD)

  32. Assuming this is very rough GGI and that the whole series won't be like tht. I can live with it. Winx becoming mermaids is kinda cheesy if you ask me, burt on the bright side Trix are back and these new outfits look GORGEOUS

    ReplyDelete
  33. The Production team commented:

    “Hello! Don’t worry, Winx remains in 2d! 2D is the soul of the series! We’re only using 3D to show for the first time a new world, the infinity ocean…where everything takes on another dimension…. :) But we can’t say more!”

    Done with the 3D complains :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. this is just upsetting.... i do not agree that the episodes should be in GGI i mean the movies where bad enough... but now the episodes :(

    the voices i dont mind i just wish it were the same old voicers instead of the new ones.

    the outfits look good and so do the transformations. the only thing i disagree with is the GGI, the winx being mermaids i guess u can say its pretty kool. hopefully they dont rush through season 5 like nick is doing with season 1 etc...

    ReplyDelete
  35. I sure am relieved to hear that it will return to the original 2D form. I would rather wait 3 years for the new season to come out in 2D, than wait 1 year for an out-of-shape 3D CGI animated WinX Club. Thanks for the update!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Love the new look for civilian looks for season 5 promo, but I don't like how they are talking about it being CGI. I think it should be reserved for the movies, for the show it just takes away the special quality of the winx.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Kiku, heres a preview clip of Aisha to the rescue for the shadow phoenix premiere. I think Keke Palmer does a semi decent job as Aisha. All I can see is Keke's face everytime Layla talks... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TP6dmdk5Ytw

    No, it did premiere yet on Nick. Nick has released previews and pictures for the premiere though.

  40. Is Nick remaking season 3 and 4? They really should. When the commercial for season 3 appeared, it had the original RAI voices (ugh....even Nickelodeon has better voices though I've gotten used to Stella's)

    Also, did they change Flora's voice in the Nick dub? It sounds more like her RAI voice in the last hour special (can't stand her voice).

    ReplyDelete
  41. No no NO! I want Rainbow productions. THAT is WAY too animation. Plzplz. dont do tht to me!

    ReplyDelete
  42. did anyone else notice blooms changed voice??? and its so cute when sky catches Bloom!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I really hate that animation but i think the rest of it is so cute! crossing my fingers for a good season!

    ReplyDelete
  44. why does it show the Winx at first in their first transformation. i dont get that part????

    ReplyDelete
  45. I don't suppose these are their casual outfits because everyone is wearing knee-length boots.

    ReplyDelete
  46. After I finished watching the video and read the first part of your opinion I was Like "omg how is that going to turn out?" but the I was relieved when i read the 2nd half

    ReplyDelete
  47. By the way, these casual outfits resemble other outfits. Bloom's is similar to her exercise outfit in Season 4, Flora's to her travel outfit in Season 4, Musa's to her concert Redfountain concert outfit in Season 2, Tecna's to her frutti outfit in Season 4 and Layla's to her outfit which doesn't actually appear in the show but I've seen it a lot; it consists of a one piece blue dress with green leopard print pockets and matching boots and belt. Stella's doesn't resemble any other outfit.
