GLOBAL HIT ANIMATED SERIES WINX CLUB COMES TO NICKELODEON, STARTING MONDAY, JUNE 27, AT 8 P.M.  Hour-Long Specials Feature Voice Talents of Nickelodeon’s Keke Palmer, Matt Shively, Elizabeth Gillies and Ariana Grande     Burbank, Calif. – June 9, 2011 – Nickelodeon brings even more magic to its air this summer with the hit international series, Winx Club, beginning Monday, June 27, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).  Launching first with four one-hour specials, followed later this year with a weekly series, Winx Club focuses on six best friends enrolled in fairy school as they face many adventures together with strength, smarts and teamwork.  Culled from the first two seasons of the Italian hit series from Rainbow S.p.A, the four specials include state-of-the-art visual effects and feature the voices of some of Nick’s biggest stars, including: Keke Palmer (True Jackson, VP) as Aisha; Elizabeth Gillies (Victorious) as Daphne; Ariana Grande (Victorious) as Diaspro; and Matt Shively (True Jackson, VP) as Skye; as well as Molly Quinn (Castle) as Bloom.  Cymphonique Miller (How to Rock) performs the show’s theme song, “Winx You’re Magic Now.”     The four specials will premiere monthly through the fall, followed by a weekly series of Winx Club seasons three and four, both featuring the new Nick voice talent.  Nickelodeon and Rainbow are currently in production on 52 additional episodes of original 2D/CG-animated seasons five and six, which are scheduled to bow in 2012.     “Winx Club is all about girl power,” said Brown Johnson, President, Animation, Nickelodeon and MTVN Kids and Family Group.  “It focuses on a group of super-fashionable fairies whose friendship and teamwork empower them to face any challenge thrown their way – from scary monsters to evil witches.”  Winx Club is an animated modern fantasy adventure series that follows six best friends — Bloom, Stella, Flora, Musa, Tecna and Aisha — enrolled in Alfea College, the finest fairy school in all the realms.  When trouble arises, the Winx transform into beautiful fairies who use their unique magical powers to fight villains and save the world from evil. Winx Club first debuted in Italy six years ago and quickly became a hit that has generated an international franchise of toys, books, clothing, and DVDs, as well as a CG-animated feature film.  Bloom (Quinn) is the most powerful fairy and leader of the Winx.  She has an inborn ability to sense danger, combined with a lively intelligence and a deep sense of loyalty.  As the fairy of the waves, Aisha (Palmer) is fearless, determined, energetic, and a sports enthusiast.  Skye (Shively) is the leader of the Specialists, a group of teenage boys from a neighboring school who befriend the Winx fairies and fight alongside them to battle evil.  The fairy sister of Bloom, Daphne (Gillies), sacrifices her life in order to keep Bloom safe and sometimes appears to her sister as an advisor.  And, Diaspro (Grande), a somewhat materialistic princess who can be difficult at times.  In support of the specials, beginning June 23, kids can visit Nick.com to play Winx Club: Enchantrix, a magic-themed animated game, where players can select and dress a Winx Club character to help guide them through environments and adventures all their own.  Petpet Park, Nickelodeon’s virtual life fantasy world inspired by the iconic virtual world pioneer,Neopets and its popular companion characters Petpets, is offering a special virtual item giveaway.  Players who visit Petpet Park from June 16-30 will receive a free Winx Club magical charm bracelet for their Petpets.  





Well Winx fans, we now have a few more actors to "welcome to the club", what do you think about the new actors and their roles? Looks like my theory is correct to a point :D

Wow, thats great news!

I know, Jade is my second favorite in Victorious. Personally, I like the idea of having her in the show, I think she will do very well. Even in Victorious she sometimes changes her voice and it is amazing. But I will admit, never did I think it would be Daphne. I really want to see this in action.

Matt...well I really haven't seen a lot of him so, I really don't know. But I am looking forward to this.

As for Cymphonique Miller doing the new theme, yay! I saw her in BTR's episode "Big Time Girl Group" where she sang and she is really good.

As far as I remember from True Jackson, Matt is nice sounding. Both of Sky's existing voices are meh.. his Rai is too high pitched, his 4kids is way too deep. (But I prefer the Rai one.)

Elizabeth, I'm not sure about. She plays such a dark character on Victorious, I'm not sure how she'll do as mystical Daphne.

As for the new singer, I've never heard of her, but from the few seconds you can hear in the trailer, I think she'll do great. Time will tell!

Cymphonique Miller is a lovely singer. I can't wait to hear the theme song.

I never liked the show True Jackson, VP much. I only watched it when I was bored and Ryan wasn't exactly my favorite character. But who knows how things will turn out?

I'm definitely excited that Elizabeth Gillies will be in Winx Club (funny, I always thought her named was spelled with an "s", not "z")! The two characters I know her for are mean ones, so it'll be kind of funny to have her voice a nice character. But I can't wait!

So far the ONLY voice actor I think I like so far is Romi Dames. She is the only VA revealed who actally sounds decent for a Winx.
As for the rest...
Keke Palmer & Matt Shively are going to ruin their charaters.
As for Elizabeth Gillies, she sounds ok and since Daphne is hardly in it, it's fine. ;)
