The news of Netflix’s decision to reject the idea of a possible third season Destiny: The Winx Saga came understandably but decidedly suddenly, announced only by showrunner Brian Young in the post we reported yesterday. A heartfelt message, but according to the creator of the original franchise, Iginio Straffi, at least rushed. Which prompted him to write a post on Instagram explaining his stance and announcing his intention to personally produce two reboots of Winx Club: a new animated series and a feature film in live action.

The news came suddenly, abruptly, without regard to our involvement, but above all to your feelings.
we read in the post.
When fate has stopped, the Winx won’t: and I’m already working so that their magic keeps you dreaming. I have a lot of news for the future of our fairies, and I think I can already reveal some secrets.
Firstly, production of a CGI reboot series of Winx Club is about to begin, yes exactly, a real reboot, with which I promise to take you back to the real world of the Winx. Stay tuned.
The second news is about my secret dream: a high-budget Winx live action feature film, that’s what your fans really deserve!
I want to return to you all the love you have given to the Winx and I do my best to produce a high quality film where you can immerse yourself and rediscover the values that an iconic brand like Winx has always embodied.
Fate: The Winx Saga chronicled the training journey of six fairies who go to Alfea, a magical college of the Beyond the World, where they learn to master their powers and break free between love, rivalry and the monsters that threaten them. Created by Brian Young (The Vampire Diaries), the series is a live-action reinterpretation of the Italian cartoon Winx Club, drawn by Iginio Straffi.
