When Netflix announced Fate: The Winx Saga has been renewed for season 2 I was ecstatic. I really enjoyed the series. It falls into that The Vampire Diaries, Riverdale, Nancy Drew, tween adaptation that I really enjoy.
However, the series wasn’t perfect and has received a lot of backlash over the creation of Terra, the new Earth Fairy. In the original series, Terra was Flora, a Latine character that seemed to be whitewashed into a plus-sized white girl. While I’m all for the inclusion of different body types, they could have found a plus-sized Latine girl and kept her name the same.
After the initial backlash, Creator Brian Young said in an interview that Terra is Flora’s cousin. Personally, I was skeptical of this announcement. It felt more like a PR cover. However, with the new Fate: The Winx Saga season 2 First Look they seem to be making good on that promise.
CHECK THE FATE: THE WINX SAGA SEASON 2 FIRST LOOK TRAILER BELOW
As you can see in the Fate: The Winx Saga season 2 trailer, Terra is on the phone, chilling in the woods, gathering mushrooms when she hears a terrifying noise. That noise turns out to be Flora!
We also see Terra use her magic, which looks stunning, and Flora calms her by adding hers. Some other noticeable difference is the coloring. Season 1 was very dark and drab. The world of Winx is bright and colorful. As well as the clothes. Terra is wearing lots of colors. I’ll hold back full judgment until I see the rest of the gang.
There’s no official release date for Fate: The Winx Saga just yet, but we do know it will be streaming on Netflix this fall! Will you be watching? I know I will! Stick around to THS for our review!
