FATE: The Winx Saga Deserves More Hype Than It Received!
Netflix did a pretty good job of capturing every group of people in their casting for the remake. This is something that's very important, especially in 2021! Certain changes that diversified the cast upset some fans because they felt like it added an unfamiliar layer to the dynamics between characters. The truth is that it did, but for a good purpose! We love seeing Aisha, one of the main characters, being portrayed as a dark-skinned Afrocentric black woman versus a barely brown racially ambiguous fairy like in the cartoon. We love seeing Terra, another main character, being plus-sized and having real conversations about the struggles that come with that. We love Dane being an implied LGBTQIA black male. These are all changes from the original that we approve, support and stand by. The broad range of backgrounds in the series makes it that much more appealing.
Whether you agree that the Netflix reprise of The Winx Club deserves more hype than it received or not, these are all things that need to be considered! Contrary to popular opinion, we look forward to Season 2 and anxiously await its release!
