You may have binge-watched Winx Club as a child and you love Netflix’s Netflix take on Death: The Winx Saga. The new series has made some significant changes that have attracted fans’ attention. These are the main differences between The Winx Club & Fate: The Winx Saga.
Since the casting announcement, fans had noticed a stark difference between Terra and Flora. The claims that the original character was whitewashed after the announcements drew some criticism online. Inspired by Jennifer Lopez, Flora was depicted as a Latina in this series. Fans were furious at the portrayal of Flora as a Latina in the series, claiming that it was due to influence.
Trix v. Beatrix
In the original Winx Club animation, Trix was the main antagonist who led the trio of witches. The fairy-based films and series are often based on the trope of ‘fairies against witches’. In Winx Club Saga, however, Beatrix was ‘inspired’ to work against Headmistress Dowling in order to uncover the secrets of Alfea.
Anyone can be a Fairy or Specialist
Winx Club Saga writers twisted the character arc to support diversity and inclusion by adding all-encompassing roles. The original story had women as fairies, and men were specialists to separate the binary genders. Genders don’t matter in the new adaptation.
One of the most memorable moments of Winx Club is the amazing transformations of fairies, such as Flora, Stella, and Musa. Only Bloom can transform in the final episode, where you can see her gain wings. It was also criticized that the transformation sequence did not have the same ‘charm’ as the animation.
