Here we go!
The clip shows us the meeting between Terra and Flora and I love it! To be honest, it’s Terra, my favorite character from Fate: The Winx Saga so I was going to love the clip for sure, but that’s not the only reason why I like what I see. But let’s break it down.
Let’s remember that Terra and Flora are cousins and from what we see in the clip, the family affection is very real between them and I love that. I like that they are not going to pit Terra against Flora nor is it going to create any kind of rivalry between them. Frankly, that was the easiest thing to do and I was a little afraid that Fate: The Winx Saga would go that way. Don’t you love when shows surprise you?
I like that Terra has someone outside of the Winx to lean on and also that Flora has Terra to be the link between her and the Winx.
Also, Paulina Chávez is the perfect Flora. She looks quite physically like the character we met in the cartoons but, most importantly, she is Latina. Flora, in the animated version, was also Latina and you know that Fate: The Winx Saga made a mistake when it came to casting in season 1, whitewashing characters and almost completely eliminating the diversity the original gave us.
That was one of the biggest criticisms – and worst decisions – they made in Fate: The Winx Saga season 1 and I’m glad to see that they corrected it and, this time, they respected the diversity of the animated version. Representation matters.
Beyond that, it seems that the special effects are going to be more spectacular this season and I don’t know what Terra was doing in that forest but it’s clear that the Winx are going to unite to fight against Rosalind’s tyranny.
I have a question… who was Terra talking to? In my mind, she was talking to Riven because he’s an insider in Rosalind’s terror scheme and they’re working together to bring her down. A girl can dream…
As for the release date, we only got: “coming soon” and although it’s still too early to speculate, it’s clear in my mind that we will be enjoying Fate: The Winx Saga season 2 this year. In any case, at Fangirlish will be ready to tell you everything!
Fate: The Winx Saga season 1 is available to watch on Netflix and season 2 is coming soon.
