I have no clue though given they do its a shame that has not happened for the Winx especially Aisha who seems a complete redesign


While I don't want to make the 'It's just lazy' complaint since a redesign of this scale always takes work, the fact they didn't go whole hog with the rest of the cast just feels... half-hearted.
And no, giving Griselda a slightly different haircut doesn't count.

(Though now I kind of want to see a Valtor redesign in the new style. And the fallout that it would bring.)

Okay, had some time to really sit down and take in the 4 minute teaser. A lot to unpack now that the redesign is fully animated and on display.

So there is definitely some controversy on the new character designs. I was in the "no thanks" camp for a while, but even though I still love the older unique Winx character style, I'm willing to give this new season a chance. At this point it is what it is, and I'm either going to try it or leave it. And thankfully, after watching the teaser, the designs are growing on me more. The animation is well done.

I did notice that the girls and the Specialists have round "young" eyes, and the teachers have the "almond" older eyes. I did hear that this may an attempt to mimic the design of some animes. Probably in an attempt to globalize their franchise better. But overall, they all have a similar new design. (Especially Griselda, who seems to have had a face lift and then some... She's so, uh, pretty now, lol.)

However, I think like you mentioned P-girl, Valtor has a very different face design. Very "Season 3" still. I mean, I'm glad he has strong features and all, but the eyes are very different as well. They don't fit the new design mold. But eh, oh well. I guess I'm just happy he's back. I never liked his ending much. I thought he deserved a more dramatic ending (other than turning into a big beast).

Some things I'm interested in:

~Who is the mysterious space captain? That looks like a fun plot.

~Apparently Musa is not at all happy to see Riven again? I thought they had left on amicable terms. I did not think she would be upset. =/

~I know we don't know how Valtor survived, but I would like to see if we learn more about his role in the magic realm. I'd love to hear more background regarding him and the Company of Light. It's been so long and I'm not sure I'm remembering correctly... but wasn't he involved in a battle against them? (That, and the Ancestral Witches.)

~I love the space theme. The Cosmix transformation alone is renewing my interest in the franchise. I think it is well done.

~At least the Lumens are not Selkies. Hopefully no bonding! xD

~It's nice to see a little more exposition of one of the known planets. In this case, Solaria.

~Is it my imagination, or are they softening Aisha/Layla's character a bit? In WoW she was uh...temperamental, to put it lightly. I'm not complaining though. I personally like to see her softened. At least when it comes to being upset. She can still have passion, but I'd rather not see her irritated at her friends so often.

Okay, it's 1am in the morning. That's all my brain can do at the moment. I'm sure I'm missing quite a bit. But overall, I'm very interested in seeing what this next season has in store.

Interesting does not give too much away, it does seem weird to bring Knut back after so long and spending so much time at Alfea. I hope he has a real purpose to the season, though I cannot see it.

From Magix, we finally have a date and time for the (Italian) premiere of S8: 15 April, 20.25... and from Sirenix-Winx, we have several new little glimpses, including the opening title sequence (there's even a little bit in it that recalls the very first opening (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) )

Sirenix-Winx reports some REALLY big news: In addition to the opening, we now also have the closing credits, but even more importantly, RAI has uploaded the first three episodes of the new season to their VOD website (without the typical region-locking (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif) )

It's bizarre, but I haven't heard anything about an English release, or any other language release for that matter. Not even an estimated date. Not sure why Rainbow is so quiet about this right now.

I have found a reliable source who is subbing episodes in English if that helps? I will link the site below. So far episodes 1-5 have been subbed. The person is also on Instagram. I'm very grateful for their subbing! If you can, give them some nice feedback. (Normally I would wait for the dub, but there are way too many spoilers on the internet right now. If I don't watch it now, nothing will be a surprise when the dub comes out...)

So there was a soft release of the Winx Club Season 8 English episides (along with other language translations)? I have been out of the loop since I have no source to update the releases. But I checked Dailymotion, and there are two accounts with the first half of Season 8 dubbed in English, along with Episode 17 randomly.

https://www.dailymotion.com/WinxClubSeason8

https://www.dailymotion.com/worldofwinx

Looks like they came out about a month ago, so I wonder if the second half of the English dub will be released by November or so.

It would be nice to have the subbed episodes in the mean time, but I cannot find anyone subbing at this time.

Russia was the second country (after Italy) to get the first half of S8 (right now, they're also being put up on the official Russian Winx YouTube), and then Turkey aired it with bilingual audio option, thus giving us English audio of the 13 episodes (IMG:style_emoticons/default/icon_smile.gif)

Thanks for the info! ☺ Ahh, then yay for Turkey! I'm so glad they receive the English audio and some kind soul put them online!

Though that really makes me wonder what the thought process is for Straffi. Honestly, he has a huge division of Europe who can speak English, he has the English audio ready, yet he purposely does not make earlier plans to release it for those in Europe. 😑 He needs to seriously overhaul his marketing direction.

Here's hoping someone subs the second half of Season 8 until then. I'm trying not to watch until I know what they are saying.

Hopefully it will be soon, the problem is a lot of people take holidays around now so it can be harder for people to have time to do it

That's a good point. 🤔 Hopefully that is the case. 🍀
