My Fan-Cast for the Upcoming Live-Action YA Winx Club TV Seriesby chrisjones-82120 | created - 28 Jul 2019 | updated - 18 Aug 2019 | Public
Yes, I grew up loving Winx Club, but only the 4Kids version (The other dubs make me CRINGE), which thankfully only did the first three seasons (Also known as the only good seasons). I'm a straight man and I have ZERO shame in admitting this. Why mention I'm straight? Because I despise the ignorant stereotype that if a man likes feminine things that means he's gay. Anyway, it was announced that they're going to make a live-action YA series of Winx Club, so I thought I'd share my personal casting choices for the characters. I hope y'all like it and let me know what you think. Enjoy!
