Netflix to Produce Winx Club Live Action Adaptation


According to a recent announcement, streaming service Netflix is getting ready to produce a live action adaptation of Rainbow Group’s popular animated franchise, Winx Club. The adaptation will allow fans of the Italian animated series to finally see the six fashionista fairies rendered onscreen as flesh and blood characters. The premise largely remains the same: the fairies are trying to hone their powers while trying to co-exist with each other at a magic boarding school.

Erik Barmack, VP of International Originals at Netflix, said: “Winx is a global phenomenon and through this exciting series we are thrilled to reinforce our relationship with Rainbow and to develop the next chapter of Winx. The famous fairies will grow up with their audience and will explore complex themes as real-life teenage superheroines in a live-action show.”

“We are very pleased that our successful collaboration with Netflix continues with ever more ambitious projects,” said Rainbow Founder and CEO Iginio Straffi. “Netflix’s young adult series have touched a chord with audiences around the world and we are looking forward to seeing the Winx fairies in this new exciting live action adaptation.”
