Fate: The Winx Saga Review



This is Netlflix’s new Fate: The Winx Saga series now available to watch. The cover shows the main five fairies together and what seems like a forest behind them.

Fate: The Winx Saga is a new Netflix series released on January 22, 2021. I watched the whole series and was very intrigued with it because it is a series based on the original Winx Club. After watching and reviewing it, I would say it is not one of my favorite shows, and I wouldn’t recommend people to watch it if they are wanting it to be similar to the original Winx Club.

Fate: The Winx Club Saga is a series about a group of teens who all have different powers and are attending a fairy boarding school called Alfea where they must learn to master their powers but are still navigating love, rivalries, and the monsters that threaten them. Throughout the series, viewers learn a lot about each character and are introduced to the main characters, which include Bloom, Musa, Stella, Aisha, Terra, Sky, Riven, and Beatrix. Each character plays a big role but is mostly centered around Bloom, a Dragon flame fairy who was adopted by humans and is American unlike the rest of the characters. This series is a Netflix original but is based on the Nickelodeon animated series Winx Club.

I watched the whole series, and after watching it, I would not watch it again or watch the next season if one comes out. I feel this way because personally I felt that throughout the season it lacked a lot of action and it was very uneventful until the very last few episodes, which I did not like. I also didn’t like that the whole series revolved around Bloom and that only her problems were valid throughout the whole season. I felt bad for Aisha and Terra because they were just pushed around, and even though they cared for Bloom, she didn’t care much for any of them. Overall I wish that the series would talk a little more about each of the fairies’ lives and not just Bloom, and I wish that they would have kept all the same characters and not changed them in this series.

Throughout the season, Bloom always states the fact that she is adopted and doesn’t care about how it affects and puts the whole school in danger. The whole series mostly seems like Musa, Stella, Terra, and Aisha are really close and get along way better than when Bloom is around them. Based on this reason I would not watch this series again.

One show I would compare with Fate: The Winx Saga would be the original Winx Club. I loved the diversity that the characters had in the original Winx Club and to see this new series remove many of the diverse characters was very sad to me. For example, they got rid of Tecna and Flora, and they changed Musa’s race/ethnicity. Another negative comparison between the two is that the original Winx Club had more action and the new Fate: The Winx Saga does not. The only good thing is I liked how they made it live action instead of animated because it shows what the characters would be like in real life, but I still wish the directors made better choices on the actors and fixed the characters to fit the original Winx Club. If I were to choose between Fate: The Winx Saga and Winx Club, I would choose the original Winx Club.

Overall, I didn’t enjoy Fate: The Winx Saga very much and would not watch upcoming seasons. I would not recommend people to watch it if they want it to be similar to the original Winx Club. I think everyone has different likings, but if viewers are looking for a series with a lot of action, this is not the series for them.
