Meanwhile, Zane’s investigations into his sea monster mystery lead him to Miss Chatham, and he becomes convinced that she knows something. At first, the girls are unconcerned, as Zane has no evidence that Miss Chatham knows anything; but when they discover that Zane is planning to dive down to Miss Chatham’s wrecked houseboat, Miss Chatham tells them of some old photographs of her and her mermaid friends, locked in a metal chest on board. Emma chooses to swim out to the wreck to salvage the photographs, before Zane finds them. But as she swims out of the wreck, Zane sees her (but luckily doesn’t recognise her because of her red hair).

But Zane makes a mistake when he lets slip to ex-girlfriend Miriam that Rikki was looking at the locket, and Miriam buys it just to spite her. But another problem comes to the girls’ attention when Miss Chatham tells the story of how Julia – a girl with a fiery nature identical to Rikki’s – trusted her wealthy boyfriend with her mermaid secret, only to have him betray her. She and the girls are worried that Rikki will make the same mistake of having too much trust in Zane, but when Zane retrieves the locket for Rikki after Miriam throws it in the water, they are relieved to see that she carefully dries the locket before touching it, meaning that she is not willing to share her secret with Zane. The girls give Julia’s locket to Miss Chatham, but she gives it to Rikki, and then gives her own locket to Emma, saying that it is right that they are all together.
    24 “Love Potion #9” Jeffrey Walker Anthony Morris 15 December 2006 124
    With the school’s end of year dance approaching, Emma takes up the stressful job of heading up the dance committee. But, while the tough task of organising the dance is bad enough on her nerves, she is also flattened by the news that Byron, who she was hoping would ask her to the dance, is already going with Ice Queen Miriam. Cleo is also disappointed that Lewis is too caught up in his experiments to ask her to the dance, and, rather than go alone, she is forced to ask Nate. The only upside is that Lewis, after days of research and testing, has come up with a formula to make the girls’ skin waterproof, and they no longer have to worry about getting wet. But, as the wise Miss Chatham declares, science and magic cannot mix, and Lewis’ formula gives the girls an allergic reaction where their skin turns red, and they are forced to flee the dance. Things turn out well in the end, however, as Cleo finally admits to Lewis how she feels about him, and they become a couple.
    25 “Dr. Danger” Jeffrey Walker Sam Carroll 22 December 2006 125
    Emma is forced to drop out of her family’s annual holiday to a water park resort, which upsets her parents and annoys her little brother. But she and the other girls have much more to worry about, when Lewis and Cleo spot their old enemy Dr. Denman’s boat anchored near Mako Island. Returning to follow up her discovery of cells that mutate on contact with water (a DNA sample from Cleo that Lewis accidentally left behind in her lab), Dr. Denman and her team of divers investigate Mako Island, and soon discover the Moon Pool – and what is worse, they also find a scale from one of the mermaids’ tails. After performing some tests on the scale, Dr. Denman sees that it is identical to the cell sample she stole from Lewis, and realises that he is strongly connected to the whole thing. But she gets even closer to the girls’ secret when she meets Zane, and hears his story of the mermaid he saw. At first, Dr. Denman doesn’t believe a word Zane says; but when her underwater cameras set up around the entrance to the Moon Pool capture images of Emma, Rikki and Cleo, she and Zane’s wealthy father team up to capture the mermaids (although they decide not to tell Zane that one of the mermaids is actually Rikki).
    26 “A Twist in the Tail” Jeffrey Walker Philip Dalkin 29 December 2006 126
    Now that the mermaids have been identified, Dr. Denman continues her pursuit of them by holding Lewis hostage on her boat and using his mobile phone to lure the girls to the Moon Pool, where she traps them. After discovering that the three mermaids are in fact Rikki and her friends, Zane is left torn about where his loyalties lie; with his father, or with Rikki. Eventually, his conscience leads him to set Lewis and the girls free (much to his father and Dr. Denman’s annoyance), but the mermaids are not out of trouble yet. Knowing that Dr. Denman and the scientists will still come after them, the girls must make a tough decision. Miss Chatham tells them of the forthcoming lunar eclipse, and says that, if they enter the Moon Pool when the eclipse passes over it, it will draw their powers away from them. As normal girls, the three of them would be of no interest to the scientists, and would be out of danger. The girls make the choice to enter the pool, and while their powers seem to vanish completely, the next morning they find they’ve become mermaids again: the eclipse only affected them for 12 hours.

    A full moon, in conjunction with a rare planetary alignment, calls the girls to the moon pool at Mako Island where their powers are greatly augmented and strengthened. The second series revolves around the arrival of a new girl, Charlotte Watsford (Brittany Byrnes), who moves into the area and develops an instant attraction to Lewis. After Charlotte sees a film of her grandmother Gracie as a mermaid she meets Max Hamilton (Martin Vaughan) who was once romantically involved with Gracie. Happy to have met his lover’s granddaughter, he tells her about the previous mermaids—Louise, Julia, and Gracie—and of Mako Island. Charlotte travels to the moon pool during a full moon and becomes the fourth mermaid in possession of all the girls’ powers. Believing herself superior, she and the girls become sworn enemies. This conflict results in a confrontation during an especially powerful full moon, which ends with Charlotte being permanently stripped of her mermaid form and abilities.

    Series two also focuses on the romantic entanglements of the girls. Cleo breaks up with Lewis for being too clingy and protective after which he dates Charlotte. Rikki and Zane start dating again after breaking up during the series one finale. Emma meets Ash (Craig Horner) and flirts with him but he is frustrated by the secrets she constantly holds back. She eventually relents and tells him that she is a mermaid. Torn because of the conflict between his friends and Charlotte, Lewis comes to the conclusion that his loyalties lie with the girls and with Cleo in particular. He breaks up with Charlotte and begins dating Cleo again.

Stranger still, Emma seems to be suffering from the same illness, as she begins ravenously devouring fish, and her mermaid scales also turn white. Cleo and the others soon make the connection between Emma and Hector and the piece of coral (which turns out to be toxic), and Lewis takes Hector to the marine park to get an antidote (blowing off a date with Charlotte, who is convinced that Cleo wants to ruin her and Lewis’ date).

Even worse, Emma sneaks to her house and eats the lobster while her parents are celebrating their wedding anniversary.

Emma, Rikki and Lewis tag along to help Cleo, and Charlotte annoyingly follows Lewis. Once on the island, the girls try to scare the campers off of it by telling Kim and Charlotte stories of monsters, and using their powers to freak them out. But when a nervous Kim climbs into the moonlight-proof tent Lewis has constructed for the girls, Cleo glimpses the full moon’s reflection outside, and wanders off. When Emma and Rikki discover that Cleo is missing, they decide to face the power of the moon, and go out looking for her. Meanwhile, a moonstruck Cleo bumps into Charlotte out walking, who torments her, thinking that she is jealous of her new relationship with Lewis.

Unfortunately, Charlotte runs straight into the cave where the moon pool is… just as the full moon passes over it. She sees the full moon’s strange effect on the pool and is intrigued, but luckily Emma is able to stop her from touching the water by freezing the moon pool’s surface, preventing Charlotte from becoming a mermaid.

Meanwhile, Wilfred leaves the Gold Coast, and Emma thinks that he has left the JuiceNet cafe to her, until the new manager shows up… and it is Ash, the cute riding instructor. Ash makes several quick changes to the cafe, which annoys Emma. But just as Emma is starting to accept Ash, some food gets stored in the wrong place and spoiled, and Ash, believing that it must have been Emma because she was the only one protesting about the changes, fires her. But he later finds out that it was another member of staff who simply got confused because of the quick changes, and gives Emma her job back after promising to remove some of the changes. He also asks her out on a date which she accepts.

The two are disgusted by the liquid’s foul smell, and abandon the bottle on a table outside the JuiceNet cafe… where it is unfortunately found by the odious Nate, who apparently likes the smell, and sprays some on himself. But while everyone else retreats from Nate’s smell, Emma, Rikki and Cleo seem drawn to him, and it doesn’t take Lewis and Zane long to realise that Nate’s popularity with the girls is due to the ambergris.

Max follows Lewis and Cleo to Mako Island, splashes some water on Cleo, and discovers that she is a mermaid as well.

Whilst there, she sees the photo of Gracie in amongst Max’s papers, and the girls are all stunned when Charlotte reveals that she is Gracie’s granddaughter. Lewis is then given the task of finding out just how much Charlotte knows about her grandmother, but his questions only make her more suspicious, and, thinking that Lewis and the girls are hiding something from her, she goes back to Cleo’s house, and steals the old reel of film in amongst the research.

Meanwhile, at the boring birthday party that Charlotte has organised for Lewis, Charlotte jealously locks Cleo and Emma in a flooded storage room, where they are left trapped as mermaids.

A fight leads to Charlotte taking Cleo’s locket, and when Lewis does nothing (believing that Cleo gave the locket to Charlotte, because it was her grandmother’s), an upset Cleo is convinced that Lewis is on Charlotte’s side, and leaves a phone message for him (which he doesn’t hear, as Charlotte has stolen his phone), about how he has abandoned her and wants nothing to do with her, before running away from home. When Lewis eventually hears Cleo’s message, he breaks up with the venomous Charlotte, and races after Cleo. Meanwhile, Cleo is being hunted by a pack of sharks, who can sense that she is weak.

In the end, Lewis tells Cleo that he is not going to America because he loves her, and Cleo forgives him. But she decides to let him go after all, and they part promising to see each other again. The girls organise another wedding ceremony for Don and Sam on Mako Island, and Kim at last warms to Sam.

    Cleo finds an unusual crystal in a rock from the Moon Pool, identical to the one in Bella’s necklace, which she collected from the Moon Pool in which she was transformed. Could this be the source of Moon Pool magic? Meanwhile, after discovering that Zane cheated in a free-diving competition, Will challenges him, and dives to a depth of 60 metres.

    After seeing the work done at the marine park by the charity Dolphin Rescue, Bella comes up with an idea to hold a fundraising event for them at the cafe, but is deflated when Sophie overhears, and steals her idea, presenting it to Rikki and Zane as her own. What is more, as Sophie is organising the event, she spitefully refuses to let Bella and the band perform. But she gets into trouble with Rikki and Zane, when all of the bands she has booked instead of Bella’s pull out, after hearing that Sophie has tried to make Dolphin Rescue pay a fee for the concert. Sophie is fired from the cafe, and Bella and the band perform to save the night. Meanwhile, Cleo, Sam, and Kim have difficulties sharing the bathroom, until Sam realizes what Kim is up to and finds a way to repay her for Cleo after Kim gets her in trouble.
    68 “The Dark Side” Colin Budds Sam Carroll 24 February 2010 (UK) 316
    Frustrated by the water tentacle’s constant attacks on them, Rikki travels to Mako Island at the full moon in order to confront it. With Bella and Cleo delayed, Will hurries after Rikki, but instead of finding the tentacle attacking her, he finds her somehow controlling it. Rikki appears to form some sort of connection with the tentacle, but when the full moon passes, she makes Will swear not to tell Bella or Cleo what happened.
    69 “A Magnetic Attraction” Colin Budds Sam Carroll 25 February 2010 (UK) 317
    Cleo is introduced to Ryan, a geophysicist working for Sam. Thinking that he might be able to help, Cleo shows him the magnetic crystal rock she found at Mako, which infuriates Rikki, who thinks that Cleo is putting their secret at risk. Cracks are beginning to form in the girls’ relationship, and Cleo and Bella become worried when Rikki starts spending all of her time in the Moon Pool. This prompts Will to confess to them what happened on the night of the full moon when Rikki confronted the tentacle. Back at the Moon Pool, Rikki discovers that bonding with the tentacle has strengthened her powers.
    70 “Into the Light” Colin Budds Sam Carroll 12 April 2010 (UK) 318
    Kim lets slip to geophysicist Ryan that Cleo and the others spend a lot of time on Mako Island, and Ryan goes there in search of more magnetic rocks like the one Cleo showed him. Rikki discovers this, and tries to warn the others that Ryan is on to them, but Bella and Cleo don’t believe her, as they are beginning to lose trust in Rikki. Rikki goes to Mako Island herself (with Will tailing her), and uses her powers to destroy Ryan’s equipment, but when she starts going too far, Will springs out, and stops her. The two of them are then forced to run and hide in the Moon Pool cavern when Ryan hears them and chases after them, but this leads to Ryan accidentally discovering the Moon Pool. Rikki forces Ryan out with her powers, but Will tells her that she has only made things worse. Realising that he is right, Rikki apologises, and, when she arrives home, reconciles with the others, and tells them of her experience with the tentacle, and how it has affected her. Rikki says she doesn’t think the tentacle is trying to harm them, which opens up a new mystery. The girls must also figure out how they are going to put Ryan off the scent.
    71 “Breakaway” Colin Budds Anthony Morris 13 April 2010 (UK) 319
    Will is getting sick of Sophie’s pressuring him into competitive free-diving, but agrees to compete in a competition to set a new depth record.

As Will sets his record, however, Rikki witnesses Sophie and Zane kissing, and her relationship with Zane is ended.
    72 “Queen for a Day” Colin Budds Samantha Strauss 13 April 2010 (UK) 320
    After breaking up with Zane, Rikki leaves the cafe in order to get away from him, and Zane re-hires Sophie as the new manager. Thrilled with her new position, Sophie immediately starts making changes to the cafe, and hires Cleo’s sister Kim as a waitress. Meanwhile, Will’s new after shave gives Bella a sneezing allergy, which also inadvertently triggers her powers. Unable to perform without sneezing (and unleashing her mermaid powers on everyone), Bella is close to being fired from the cafe by the brutal Sophie.
    73 “The Jewel Thief” Colin Budds Simon Butters 14 April 2010 (UK) 321

Rikki and Bella experiment with their crystals, and are fascinated by how they react when near each other; the crystals produce a blue glow that mesmerises the girls, similar to the effect of a full moon, and, when actually touched together, they release a powerful energy burst, that causes an electrical blackout! The girls decide to keep the crystals apart until they learn more about them, and Rikki leaves hers with Will. But a jealous Zane, mistakenly thinking that Rikki and Will are going out, breaks into Will’s boatshed, and steals the necklace. A furious Rikki gets it back from him, and tells him once again that their relationship is over. Will makes another necklace for Cleo, and the girls wear them as a symbol of their friendship.
    74 “Mako Masters” Colin Budds Philip Dalkin 14 April 2010 (UK) 322

The girls are forced to make a quick exit when, during their science exam, the full moon rises early, and the tentacle tries to reach them through a water cooler in the classroom. They travel to Mako Island, and confront the tentacle, this time without fear, and realise that it is not trying to harm them, but get a message to them. The girls all place their crystal necklaces in a hole in the cave wall, triggering a projection to appear in the air. The girls watch it, and see a comet travelling towards the Earth, but before they can watch the whole message, Zane and Will interrupt them, and the projection stops. The girls are confused as to whether the Moon Pool was showing them the past (the creation of the Moon Pool itself), or the future.
    75 “Beach Party” Colin Budds Anthony Morris 15 April 2010 (UK) 323
    The Gold Coast is playing host to a massive beach party, and Bella wants to ask Will if he will go with her. But she is upset when she misunderstands a conversation she hears between Rikki and Will, and thinks that they are going together. Bella then has no alternative but to ask Nate, which confuses Will (as he was about to ask her).

Meanwhile, Sophie is trying to persuade Zane to change the name of the cafe.

Meanwhile, there is trouble between Bella and Will, when they struggle to find things in common.
    77 “A Date with Destiny” Colin Budds Chris Roache 16 April 2010 (UK) 325
    The girls find a way to simulate a full moon, so that they can finish watching the message the Moon Pool was trying to show them. They discover that the comet they saw is being drawn towards the Earth by the Moon Pool’s magnetic pull, and is going to hit Mako Island. The girls must try to harness the power of Mako Island’s magnetic crystals to force the comet away, and save the Earth. Meanwhile, the cafe is in danger of going bankrupt, and Sophie is searching for ways to earn more money. She gets her chance when Ryan (who is annoyed that Sam has ended his research on Mako Island), spots the crystal in Bella’s necklace, and tells her that it might be valuable. After finding out where Will got the crystal from, Sophie leads Ryan to Mako Island (with a reluctant Zane close behind), and they discover the magnetic crystals in the walls of the Moon Pool cave.
    78 “Graduation” Colin Budds Joss King 16 April 2010 (UK) 326
    By harvesting the magnetic crystals, Zane, Sophie and Ryan have severely damaged the Moon Pool, and the girls find that it no longer has enough power to push the incoming comet away from the Earth. All seems lost, but Bella, Cleo and Rikki band together, and use their own magic to create a tower of water and light, that knocks the comet off course, making it miss the Earth. With the Earth saved, the girls then graduate from school, and celebrate in the cafe, but there is one more surprise in store for them… Lewis has returned home. Zane and Rikki became friends again.

winx Club /Feernas äventyr

 Winx club is an Italian-American animated television series created by Iginio Straffi and co-produced by Rainbow SpA and Nickelodeon. It is set in a magical universe that is inhabited by fairies, witches, and other mythical creatures. The show follows a fairy warrior name Bloom as she enrolls at Alfea College to train and hone her skills. The series uses a serial format that has an ongoing storyline, with individual story arcs comprising each season. It premiered on 28 January 2004, becoming a ratings success in Italy and on Nickelodeon networks internationally. Straffi initially outlined the show s plot to last three seasons. He chose to continue the story for a fourth season in 2009. Around this time, Winx Club s popularity attracted the attention of the American media company Viacom, owner of Nickelodeon. Viacom purchased 30% of the show s animation studio, Rainbow SpA, and Nickelodeon Became a co-producer of the series. Production on the fifth, sixth, and seventh seasons was divided between Rainbow and Nickelodeon Animation Studio. To attract an American audience, Viacom assembled a voice cast of Nickelodeon actors (including Arianna Grande ), invested USS 100 million in advertising for the series, and inducted Winx Club into Nickelodeon s franchise of Nicktoons. Beginning in 2010, episodes of Winx Club have been jointly written with Nickelodeon s American team. Nickelodeon s writers aim to make the series multicultural and appealing toward viewers from different countries. In 2019, Straffi commented on his near-decade of collaboration with Nickelodeon, saying that the know-how of Rainbow and sensibilities of the Americans, with our European touch. The continued partnership between Rainbow and Nickelodeon on Winx Club has led to the development of additional co-productions, including Club 57 in 2019, on which much of Winx Club s staff worked. The series was subject to budget cuts in 2014, during its seventh season. The 3D computer-generated segments and Hollywood voice actors were deemed too costly to keep using. The seventh season eventually premiered on Nickelodeon s worldwide channels in 2015. After a four-year hiatus, an eighth season premiered in 2019. At Straffi s decision, this season was retooled for a preschool target audience. Most of the show s longtime crew members were not called back to work on season 8, and Nickelodeon s team moved to a consultant role. Straffi stepped away from the series at this time, shifting his focus to live-action projects. A live-action adaptation of Winx Club fot young adults, titled The Winx Saga, was announced in 2018.

 Premise- The series follows the adventures of a group of girls known as the Winx, students (and later graduates ) at the Alfea College for Fairies, who turn into fairies to fight villains. The team consists of Bloom, the red- haired leader whit flame-based powers; Stella, the fairy of the sun; Flora, the fairy of nature; Tecna, the fairy of technology; Musa, the fairy of music; and Aisha, the fairy of waves. Roxy, the fairy of animals, occasionally joins the Winx and all three of the show s production companies refer to her as the Winx Club s seventh member. The main male characters are called the Specialists, a group of students and later graduates of the Red Fountain school who are romantically involved with the Winx fairies. They include Bloom s fiance sky; Stella s fiance Brandon; Flora s boyfriend Helia; Tecna s boyfriend Timmy; and Musa s boyfriend Riven. Unlike their female counterparts, the Specialists do not have magical powers and instead train how to fight using laser weapons. The Winx and Specialists most frequent adversaries are a trio of withes named the Trix; Icy, Darcy, and Stormy, all of whom are former students of the Cloud Tower school. Winx Club is set in a vast universe that has several dimensions. Most episodes take place in the Magic Dimension, which is closed off to ordinary people and inhabited by creatures from European mythology like fairies, witches, and monsters. The capital of of this world is the city of Magix – which is located on the planet of the same – where the three main magic schools are situated. The other planets of the Magic Dimension include Bloom home planet Domino, Stella s home planet Solaria, Flora s home planet Linphea, Tecna s home  planet Zenith, Musa s home planet Melody, and Aisha s home planet Andros. Some episodes take place on Earth, Roxy s home planet and where Bloom spent her childhood. The concept of fairy magic in the series is presented in the form of magical transformations, that fairies receive by performing certain actions. Having mastered the transformation, fairies can summon it at any time, after which she has wings, and her clothes change to bright and shinny.

During the 1990s, comic artist Iginio Straffi noticed that animated action shows were primarily focused on male protagonists;[15][16] at the time, he felt that the “cartoon world was devoid of female characters.”[17] Straffi hoped to introduce an alternative show with a female lead aged 16 to 18, as he was interested in “exploring the psychological side” of the transition to adulthood.[18] He decided to develop a pilot centred on the conflict between two rival colleges; one for fairies and another for witches.[19] Straffi compared his original premise to “a sort of ‘Oxford–Cambridge rivalry‘ in a magical dimension”.[20] In expanding the concept, Iginio Straffi drew his inspiration from Japanese manga[21] and the comics of Sergio Bonelli,[22] a comic writer for whom Straffi had worked.[23]

Straffi’s pilot, which was titled “Magic Bloom,”[24] featured the original five Winx members in attires similar to those of traditional European fairies.[25] It was produced during a twelve-month development period that included animation tests, character studies, and market surveys.[26] The animation attracted the interest of Rai Fiction,[27] which paid for 25% of the production cost in exchange for Italian broadcast rights and a share of the series’ revenue over 15 years.[28] After holding test screenings of the pilot, however, Straffi was unhappy with the audience’s unenthusiastic reaction to the characters’ outdated clothing style[25] and stated that the pilot did not satisfy him.[27] In a 2016 interview, Straffi said the end result was unoriginal and “looked like just another Japanese-style cartoon … but nothing like [the modern] Winx “.[29] He likened his feelings about the pilot to an “existential crisis” and chose to scrap the entire test animation despite an investment of over €100,000 in the completed pilot.[27]

To rework the concept, Straffi’s Rainbow team hired Italian fashion designers, including some from Dolce & Gabbana[30] and Prada,[31] to restyle the show and give the characters a more modern appearance. The crew changed the show’s color palette, replacing the pilot’s colour scheme with a brighter collection of hues, and adjusted the skin tone of one of the protagonists to look “more Latin” in an attempt to add diversity to the show.[25] Production of the restyled series began by 2002, and Rainbow estimated the episodes would be delivered to distributors by late 2003.[32] The new name of the series (“Winx”) was derived from the English word “wings,” and the “x” was intended to evoke the shape and sound of wings.[15] Straffi’s aim was to appeal to both genders, including action sequences and displays of power designed for male viewers and fashion elements for female viewers.[32][33] At the October 2003 MIPCOM event, Rainbow screened the show’s first episode to international companies.[34] The first season had its world premiere on Italian television channel Rai 2 on 28 January 2004.[35]

From the beginning of development, Iginio Straffi planned an overarching plot that would conclude after 78 episodes.[36] Straffi stated that the Winx saga “would not last forever”[26] in 2007, and he intended the first feature film (Winx Club: The Secret of the Lost Kingdom) to resolve any plot points remaining from the third season finale.[36] In 2008, Straffi decided to extend the series, citing its increasing popularity.[36]

In 2010, Nickelodeon—which had aired Winx Club on one of its international outlets since the show’s debut[37]—announced that it would be co-producing the fifth and sixth seasons of the series with Rainbow,[38] as well as four hour-long specials summarizing the first two seasons.[39] Production on the 52 new episodes was divided between Nickelodeon Animation Studio[40] and Rainbow with Nickelodeon approving scripts and all phases of animation.[41] Nickelodeon brought on some of its long-time staff members, such as creative consultant Janice Burgess, and writers Adam Peltzman and Carin Greenberg.[42] In February 2011, Nickelodeon’s parent company Viacom purchased a 30% stake in Rainbow,[43] with the other 70% belonging to Iginio Straffi. Following the announcement, the two Winx Club feature-length films were released through Viacom’s Paramount Pictures[43] and aired on Nickelodeon.[44] The series was officially inducted into Nickelodeon’s franchise of Nicktoons,[7] a brand that encompasses original animated productions created for the network.

On 7 April 2014, Rainbow SpA and Nickelodeon announced their continuing partnership on the seventh season of Winx Club, with a planned premiere date of 2015.[45] Straffi said of the season: “It will be a privilege to partner once more with Nickelodeon on this.”[45] During this season’s production, Rainbow was undergoing a multimillion-euro financial loss due to the box office failure of its film Gladiators of Rome.[46] This made them cut costs on Winx Club, its most expensive show. The CGI-animated segments and California voice cast from the previous two seasons were deemed too costly to continue using for season 7. As with the previous two seasons, the copyright to season 7 is co-owned by Rainbow and Viacom.[5] The first episode aired on 22 June 2015, on Nickelodeon in Asia,[47] followed by its broadcast on 21 September 2015 on Rai Gulp in Italy.

The president of Nickelodeon International, Pierluigi Gazzolo, was responsible for arranging the co-production partnership and became a member of Rainbow’s board of directors (a role he continues to serve in, as of November 2019).[48] In addition to financing the television series, Viacom provided the resources necessary to produce a third Winx film.[49] In 2019, Iginio Straffi commented on the two studios’ near-decade of continued work together, saying that “the know-how of Rainbow and the know-how of Nickelodeon are very complementary; the sensibilities of the Americans, with our European touch.”[8] Winx Club opened the opportunity for Nickelodeon and Rainbow to collaborate on additional co-productions together, including various pilots from 2014 onward and Club 57 in 2019.[50]

The eighth season of the series was not produced immediately after the seventh. It followed a multiple-year hiatus and was not made as a direct continuation of the previous season. At Iginio Straffi’s decision, Season 8 was heavily retooled to appeal to a preschool target audience.[8]

For season 8, Rainbow’s creative team restyled the characters to appear younger, hoping to increase the appeal toward preschoolers.[8] The plot lines were simplified so that they could be understood by a younger audience.[8] Most of the show’s longtime crew members were not called back to work on this season, including art director Simone Borselli, who had designed the series’ characters from season 1 to 7, and singer Elisa Rosselli, who had performed a majority of the songs.[51] In another change from previous seasons, Nickelodeon’s American team served as consultants rather than directly overseeing the episodes; at the time, Nickelodeon was instead working with Rainbow SpA on a new co-production, Club 57.[8] Season 8 was also the first-ever season without the involvement of Rai Fiction.[52]

Iginio Straffi made the decision to shift the show’s intended audience after years of gradually aiming toward a younger demographic. In a 2019 interview,[8] Straffi explained that decreasing viewership from older viewers and an increased audience of young children made this change a necessity. He elaborated that “the fans of the previous Winx Club say on social media that the new seasons are childish, but they don’t know that we had to do that.”[8] Straffi stepped away from the series at this time and did not oversee season 8’s production like he had for the previous installments. He instead shifted his focus to live-action projects aimed at older audiences: Nickelodeon’s Club 57 and Fate: The Winx Saga.[8] Straffi explained that “the things we had to tone down [in season 8] have been emphasized in the live action–the relationships, the fights, the love stories.” He added that he hopes that Fate will satisfy the “20-year-olds who still like to watch Winx.”[8]

The series’ visuals are a mixture of Japanese anime and European elements,[53] which Iginio Straffi calls “the trademark Rainbow style”.[21] The main characters’ final designs are based on Straffi’s original sketches, which were modelled on celebrities popular at the turn of the 21st century. In a 2011 interview with IO Donna, Straffi stated that Britney Spearsserved as the basis for Bloom, Cameron Diaz for Stella, Jennifer Lopez for Flora, Pink for Tecna, Lucy Liu for Musa, and Beyoncé for Aisha.[22] This approach was part of Straffi’s aim for the fairies to represent “the women of today”[17] and look much more modern than classic examples like la Fata Turchina.[54] The three Trix witches were also designed to appear “beautiful and fashionable” to counter the stereotype of ugly witches.[19]

A team of specialized artists designs the characters’ expressions and outfits for each season. About 20 tables of expressions and positions from all angles are drawn for each character.[19] The designers start to develop characters’ costumes by creating collages from magazine clippings of recent fashion trends. Using these as references, they draw multiple outfits for each character.[55] Simone Borselli, the series’ art director, designed most of the characters’ early-season clothing despite lacking a background in fashion design. When asked by an interviewer where his fashion intuition came from, Borselli responded, “From being gay.”[56]

The first stage in the production of an episode is developing its script, a process that can last 5–6 months.[57] When the series began production, the writers were based entirely in Italy. Since Nickelodeon joined as a co-producer in 2010, Rainbow’s group of 30 writers has collaborated with teams in both Italy and the United States.[55] The international coordination, which has continued through 2019,[55] intends to make scenarios depicted in the program multicultural and accessible to viewers from different countries.[55] Episodes are written with two stories in mind: a longer narrative arc that lasts for tens of episodes and a subplot that concludes at the end of the 22-minute runtime.[58] This episode structure was modelled on those of teen dramas and American comics.[59] Themes written into the series include romance,[10] the acquisition of maturity upon reaching adulthood,[60] and (in the fifth season) nature conservation.[22]

After the script and character designs have been approved, the screenplay is passed onto a group of storyboard artists. For each 22-minute episode, the artists prepare 450 pages of storyboards for each 22-minute episode,[55] which are used to assemble an animatic. At this stage, dialogue and music are added to determine the length of each scene.[61] Characters’ mouths are normally animated to match the Italian voice actors’ lines but for seasons five and six, mouth movements were synchronized to Nickelodeon’s English voice cast.[62] Episodes are worked on concurrently because each requires around two years of work to complete.[55]

At the beginning of the first season, the ten-person production team worked at Rainbow’s original headquarters in Recanati.[57] In 2006, Straffi opened a second studio in Rome for computer-animated projects.[63] During the fifth and sixth seasons, 3D CGI sequences were incorporated into the series for the first time, animated at the studio in Rome. According to the Rainbow CGI animators, the animation of the characters’ hair in underwater scenes was particularly difficult, and it was animated separately from the characters.[61]

In Italy, the series’ voice actors include Letizia Ciampa (Bloom), Perla Liberatori (Stella), Ilaria Latini (Flora), Domitilla D’Amico (Tecna), Gemma Donati (Musa), Laura Lenghi (Aisha), and Debora Magnaghi (Roxy). According to Ilaria Latini, the characters were cast before any character designs were finalized and the actors were shown black-and-white sketches of their roles.[64] The actors record their lines in Rome[55] and the animation is later synchronized to their voices, with the exception of the specials and seasons 5–6, which were animated to match the Hollywood cast.[62]

The 2011 specials introduced a new cast of Hollywood voice actors, who also provided voices for the first two Winx films and seasons three through six. For this cast, Viacom hired several Nickelodeon actors whose names were advertised on-air to attract American viewers; these stars included Ariana Grande as Diaspro,[65] Elizabeth Gillies as Daphne, Keke Palmer as Aisha, Matt Shively as Sky, and Daniella Monet as Mitzi.[66] The cast recorded their lines at the Atlas Oceanic studio in Burbank, California.[67][68]

According to Iginio Straffi, music plays a crucial role in the success of the series. Original pop songs in the “style of Britney Spears and Beyoncé” have been recorded in about 40 languages for the show.[30] Songs are usually drafted in English; Italian lyrics are written after Rainbow has approved the English versions.[69] Frequent composers for the program include Michele Bettali, Stefano Carrara, Fabrizio Castania, and Maurizio D’Aniello. Music is recorded in Milan and Rome, and each song takes between five and twelve months to complete.[70]One of Nickelodeon’s composers, Emmy and Grammy Award recipient Peter Zizzo, joined the team during Nickelodeon’s joint production of the fifth season. His music is featured in the fifth, sixth,[71] and seventh[72] seasons; he also composed the stand-alone single “We Are Believix” for the show.[73] The single was accompanied by a Nickelodeon live-action music video that was performed by Elizabeth Gillies[74] and was released on iTunes. Six compilation albums based on the show’s music have been released; some include songs that do not appear in the television series.[75]

Many of the show’s tracks are performed by Italian singer Elisa Rosselli. She was selected during the production of the first Winx film, as Iginio Straffi was seeking a writer and singer for the movie’s soundtrack. Straffi looked to Sony Music‘s archive for inspiration and enjoyed three of Rosselli’s songs that were co-produced with Maurizio D’Aniello.[69] After working together on the film, Rosselli continued to produce music for the show (usually in collaboration with D’Aniello or Peter Zizzo)[70] until its seventh season.[69]

Winx Club first premiered on the Italian television channel Rai 2 on 28 January 2004.[6] Reruns later began airing on Rai Gulp, a sister channel to Rai 2 aimed at children and teenagers, shortly after the network launched in 2007. On 2 September 2010, Nickelodeon announced through a press release that they would be co-producing additional seasons with Rainbow.[38] Nickelodeon debuted four one-hour specials (also co-produced with Rainbow) summarizing the first two seasons, the first of which premiered on their flagship American channel on 27 June 2011.[65] With the exception of Italy, the fifth, sixth, and seventh seasons launched on Nickelodeon channels domestically and internationally.[38]

During the sixth season in 2014, episode premieres were moved from Rai 2 to Rai Gulp in Italy, and from Nickelodeon to Nick Jr. in the United States. The change to younger-skewing networks followed Rainbow’s lowering of Winx Clubs target demographic to a younger audience than the earlier seasons.[8] The seventh season was jointly announced by Nickelodeon and Rainbow in April 2014 as part of their continuing partnership.[77] In Asia, it premiered on Nickelodeon on 22 June 2015,[47] which was followed by its premieres on Rai Gulp in Italy (21 September 2015) and Nick Jr. in the United States (10 January 2016).

By 2014, the show had been aired in over 150 countries.[78] In 2019, after the Viacom-CBS merger announcement, Informa‘s Television Business International listed the show among the most important Viacom properties internationally.[79] Third-party broadcasters that acquired the show included China’s CCTV,[80] Ireland’s TG4,[81] and 4Kids,[82] the last of which aired the series in the United States until their broadcast agreement was permanently revoked by Rainbow in 2009.[30] 4Kids censored and edited the original content in an attempt at localization. Iginio Straffi criticized these adjustments in a 2008 interview, saying, “The Winx fairies cannot talk about boys there. I think this removes something essential.”[83] Straffi wanted to launch the series in Japan, but he abandoned the idea due to the country’s regulation that foreign content producers must pay for airtime.[30]

Upon its debut, Winx Club was a ratings success. During its first season in 2004, the series became one of the highest-rated programs on Rai 2 with an average audience share of 17%.[31] Among viewers 4–14 years old, the average share was 45%.[31] In France and Belgium, the season reached a 56% share among 10 to 14-year-olds.[84] According to Rai in 2009, the gender mix of Winx Club‘s audience was nearly equal across the first three seasons; in the target demographic of 4–14 years of age, females represented only 3% more of the audience than males.[85] The premiere of the fourth season set a record for an animated show’s audience on Rai 2 with 500,000 viewers.[86] In 2007, Iginio Straffi noted that there were lower ratings in English-speaking territories than in Europe at the time, which he surmised was due to cultural differences.[87]

On 27 June 2011, the first special co-produced with Nickelodeon premiered on Nick U.S. to 2.278 million viewers.[88] Each of the following three specials performed better than the previous ones, with the fourth (“The Shadow Phoenix”) rating #1 in its time slot among viewers aged 2–11.[89] During the first quarter of 2012, an average of 38.5 million viewers watched the series across nine of Nickelodeon’s international outlets, a 60% increase from the fourth quarter of 2011.[89] On Nickelodeon UK, Winx Club increased the network’s ratings by 58% on its launch weekend in September 2011, ranking as the second-most-popular program on the channel and the most popular show with females aged 7–15.[90] As of 2019, Winx Club and SpongeBob SquarePants are the only animated shows that are still broadcast on Nickelodeon UK’s main network.[91]

Federico Vercellino of Il Sole 24 Ore described the series as “an Italian cultural enterprise—the largest since the days of Salgari“.[92] He credited the show with opening up Italian media to feminist stories about rebellious female characters, calling it a “phenomenon capable of building today’s popular culture”.[92] A 2019 study conducted for the Corriere della Sera reported that Winx Club was the fourth-most-popular Italian series outside of the country, with strong demand in Russia and the United States.[93]

In 2018, Giovanna Gallo of Cosmopolitan stated that the program’s characters have become “real icons of fashion” and noted the show’s popularity with cosplayers,[94] performance artistswho wear costumes and accessories to represent the show’s characters. Winx Club costumes were the focus of a second-season episode of The Apprentice, in which Flavio Briatorechallenged the show’s teams to create three Winx outfits intended for females 25–35 years of age, which were to be submitted to the judgment of Iginio Straffi.[95] la Repubblicas Marina Amaduzzi attributed the popularity of Winx-inspired fashion to fans’ desire to emulate the characters, stating that “Winx fanatics dress, move and breathe like their heroines”.[96]

The show has also been popular at fan conventions. For instance, in 2012, Winx Club had a large presence at Nickelodeon’s San Diego Comic-Con booth, where exclusive collectibles were raffled off to fans.[97] In 2015, a four-day Winx Club fan gathering in Jesolo counted 100,000 attendees.[98] In October 2018, an exhibition for the series’ fifteenth anniversary was held at Europe’s largest comics festival, the Lucca Comics & Games convention in Tuscany.[99]

The Regional Council of Marche, Italy, chose the Winx Club fairies to represent Marche and Italy at the Expo 2010 world’s fair in Shanghai.[100] A four-minute video using stereoscopic technology showing the Winx in Marche’s tourist destinations was animated for the Italian Pavilion.[100] In 2015, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi visited Rainbow’s studio and wrote that “the Winx are a beautiful story of Italian talent”.[101]

In a New York Times article, Bocconi University professor Paola Dubini stated that the themes and characters of Winx Club appealed to both the target audience and their parents. After studying the rise of the show’s production company, Dubini wrote that the fairies’ “defined and different personalities” made them relatable to viewers.[102] Common Sense Media reviewer Tara Swords gave the show a three-star review, calling it “an imaginative story with bold, take-charge heroines” while also arguing that the show is hindered by its design elements and by “ongoing drama surrounding the main characters’ attraction to their male counterparts”.[103]

Criticism has been directed at the character designs, which some have perceived as unrealistic. Meenakshi Gigi Durham took issue with the characters’ clothes in her 2008 book The Lolita Effect, writing that the fairies’ revealing outfits seem to link “ideal femininity” with body display.[104] Researchers for the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media felt that the characters represent an unattainable body image for women.[105] In 2011, Italian journalist Loredana Lipperini said the series perpetuates the idea that women must be fashionable, that the characters’ appearances negatively impact viewers, and that fans learn to “admire the flowing hair, plump lips, narrow waists and wide hips”.[106]

In an interview with the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, psychotherapist Gianna Schelotto assumed an opposite standpoint. She argued that the Winx are “anti-showgirls” with stories that highlight positive aspects like friendship, guiding female viewers “away from supermodels to which the commercial world drags them”.[107] Rhodes University professor Jeanne Prinsloo agreed, saying in 2014 that “in spite of the unrelenting bad press”, Winx Club episodes “present complex narratives with active female protagonists and positive relationships that validate ‘girl power'”.[108] Il Sole 24 Ore also wrote positively about the show’s feminist themes, commending how the characters “expose narcissistic masculinity”.[92] Responding to criticisms of the character designs, Iginio Straffi said in 2007 that the fairies’ looks are an “envelope” serving to interest the viewer and are “never vulgar or exaggerated”.[53]

Winx Club has attracted academic interest for its presentation of gender roles. In the journal of Volgograd State University, Russian sociologists Georgiy Antonov and Elena Laktyukhina judged that female characters in the series are depicted as dominant while males are shown to be passive.[109] As examples of women adopting traditionally male roles, they listed the female fairies fighting for their boyfriends, saving them from enemies, and inviting them on dates, while at the same time having difficulty performing household duties like cooking and cleaning.[109] Writing for Kabardino-Balcarian State University, Zalina Dokhova and Tatiana Cheprakova stated that the series conveys “both positive and negative stereotypes”,[110] citing the opposite personalities of Stella and Aisha. They wrote that Stella’s character incorporates stereotypically feminine passions for shopping and clothes while Aisha represents a more realistic character with an interest in male-dominated sports.[110]

In April 2004,[111] The Walt Disney Company filed an unsuccessful copyright infringement lawsuit against Rainbow SpA.[111] The company accused Rainbow of copying the Winx Club concept from its W.I.T.C.H. comic book,[111] which was published over a year after production on Winx Club began.[112] Disney applied for an injunction order to halt the further release of the Winx Club series and comic magazine; to declare the Winx Clubtrademark invalid; and to seize the periodical and film material bearing the allegedly infringing Winx Club name.[111] Rainbow won the case against Disney, as they provided proof that Winx Club entered production by 2000, while the W.I.T.C.H. comic was not released until May 2001.[112][113] On 2 August 2004,[114] all of Disney’s infringement claims were rejected by the Tribunale di Bologna’s Specialized Commercial Matters Department,[111]which deemed them unfounded.[111] The suit later became the subject of a commercial law seminar at the University of Macerata in 2009.[114]

In 2005, Iginio Straffi was interviewed in IO Donna about the legal battle.[112] He was asked how it felt “to be one of Disney’s most hated people,”[112] and answered that he—as the founder of a small animation studio—was glad to have “defeated” a massive conglomerate.[112] “I feel a certain pride in having annoyed such a giant. It’s inspiring,” he elaborated.[112] As a result of the lawsuit, Straffi has avoided doing any business with the Disney corporation; he commented in 2014, “They’ve lost the chance to explore our creativity.”[115]

In March 2018, a live-action adaptation aimed at young adults was announced.[9] As of August 2019, the series is in pre-production with Brian Young set as showrunner and Judy Counihan set as executive producer.[116]Filming will begin in September 2019[116] for a planned release date of 2020. The series will follow the same general story as the animated version[9] and will star Abigail Cowen as Bloom.[117]

On 8 October 2006, a Winx Club feature film was announced on Rainbow’s website. The Secret of the Lost Kingdom was released theatrically in Italy on 30 November 2007.[118] Its television premiere was on 11 March 2012 on Nickelodeon in the United States.[44] The plot takes place after the events of the first three seasons, following Bloom as she searches for her birth parents and fights the Ancestral Witches who destroyed her home planet. Iginio Straffi had planned a feature-length story since the beginning of the series’ development, and the film eventually entered production after Straffi founded Rainbow CGI in Rome.[10]

On 9 November 2009, a sequel film was announced for a release date in 2010.[119] Winx Club 3D: Magical Adventure was released theatrically in Italy on 29 October 2010.[120] Its television premiere was on 20 May 2013, on Nickelodeon in the United States.[121] In the film, Sky proposes to Bloom, but Sky’s father does not approve of their marriage.[119]Production on Magical Adventure began in 2007, while the first film was still in development.[120] It is the first Italian film animated in stereoscopic 3D.[122]

A third film, titled Winx Club: The Mystery of the Abyss, was released theatrically in Italy on 4 September 2014.[123] The film made its television premiere on Nickelodeon Germany on 8 August 2015.[124] The plot follows the Winx venturing through the Infinite Ocean to rescue Sky, who has been imprisoned by the Trix. According to Iginio Straffi, the film has a more comedic tone than the previous two films.[123]

PopPixie is a comedy spin-off series that ran for a single season over two months in 2011. It is based on the chibi-inspired Pixie characters from the second season of Winx Club.[125] The series does not feature any of the original characters and is aimed at a younger audience than other Winx content.[126]

World of Winx is a spin-off series that premiered in 2016; Straffi described it as one “with more adult graphics, a kind of story better suited to an older audience”[127] than the original series. It features the Winx travelling to Earth on an undercover mission to track down a kidnapper known as the Talent Thief.[128] 26 episodes over two seasons were produced.[129]

Iginio Straffi opened up to licensing Winx Club merchandise in order to finance his studio’s other projects;[130] in 2008, he stated that he reinvests “almost everything” back into Rainbow.[18] Across the show’s first ten years on air, more than 6,000[78] pieces of tie-in merchandise were released by external licensing companies.[131] As of 2014, Winx Club merchandise licenses generated around €50 million annually,[132] with most of the revenue going toward product licensees rather than Rainbow itself.[78] According to a VideoAge International article, Rainbow’s take from merchandise sales averages 10 percent, with some deals only giving the studio five percent.[78] Outside Europe, Mattel[37] released products based on the show until 2012, when Nickelodeon named Jakks Pacific as the series’ new merchandising partner.[133] The announcement followed a Winx Clubadvertising campaign on which Nickelodeon spent US$100 million.[134]

Doll collections based on the show’s characters were first released in January 2004 to coincide with its debut.[135] In Italy, the dolls are manufactured by Witty Toys (a division of Rainbow)[136] and distributed by Giochi Preziosi.[37] As of 2016, more than 100 collections had been designed and over 60 million Winx Club dolls had been sold.[137] In 2013, Rainbow relaunched vintage dolls as collectors’ items.[138]

An ongoing comic book serial has been published since the series’ premiere.[139] Over 180 Italian issues have been released as of 2019. In 2014, the comics’ worldwide circulation was 25 million copies, with 55,000 copies sold each month in Italy.[78] In the United States, manga distributor Viz Media translated several of the first 88 issues and released them across nine graphic novel volumes.[140] Other tie-in books unrelated to the comics have been produced, starting with character guides distributed by Giunti Editore.[139] Nickelodeon’s partner Random House has published English-language Winx Club books since 2012.[141]

In September 2005, a live stage musical called “Winx Power Show” began touring in Italy.[142] The musical later expanded to other European countries[142] and the show’s cast performed at the 2007 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in Milan.[143] An ice show follow-up starring Carolina Kostner was launched in November 2008.[144] In December 2014, the “Winx Club Musical Show” began in Italy to celebrate the series’ tenth anniversary.[145]

Several console video games based on the show have been produced. The first, Konami Europe‘s Winx Club, was released on 15 November 2005.[146] Other video games based on the franchise include Winx Club: The Quest for the Codex (2006), Winx Club: Join the Club (2007), Winx Club: Mission Enchantix (2008), Winx Club: Secret Diary (2009), Winx Club: Believix in You (2010), Winx Club: Magical Fairy Party (2012), and Winx Club: Saving Alfea (2014).[147] Magical Fairy Party was released as part of Nickelodeon’s partnership with D3Publisher.[147] A physical trading card game based on the franchise and produced by Upper Deck Entertainmentwas released in 2005.[148]

The Dark Crystal film.

 The Dark Crystal (sometimes referred to as Jim Henson s The Dark Crystal ) is a 1982 puppet – animated high fantasy film directed by Jim Henson and Frank Oz. It s stars the voices of Stephen Garlick, Lisa Maxwell,Billie Whitelaw, Percy Edwards, and Barry Dennen. The film was produced by ITC Entertainment and Henson Associates and distributed by Universal Pictures. The plot revolves around Jen, a Gelfling on a quest to restore balance to the world of Thra and overthrow the ruling Skeksis by restoring a powerful broken Crystal. It was marketed as a famliy flim, but was notably darker than the creators previous material. The animatronics used in the film were considered groundbreaking. The primary concept artist  was fantasy illustrator Brian Froud,  famous  for his distinctive fairy and dwarf designs. Froud also Collaborated with Henson and Oz for their next project, the 1986 film Labyrinth. The Dark Crystal was produced by Gary Kurtz, while the screenplay was written by David Odell, with whom Henson previously    worked as a staff writer for The Muppet Show. The film score was composed by Trevor Jones. The film received mixed to positive reviews from mainstream critics; while being criticized for its darker, more dramatic tone in contrast to Henson s pervious works, it was praised for its narrative, aesthetic, and characters, and later garnered a cult following. A prequel television series, The Dark Crystal; Age of Resistance, premiered on Netflix in 2019. Jag älskar den filmen.

  Plot – A millennium ago on the planet Thra, two new races appeared when a shard was shattered from the Crystal of Truth: the malevolent Skeksis whose Continued corruption of the Crystal to extend their lives ravaged Thra, and the gentle urRu, more commonly known as the Mystics, who made their home in the valley of Stones to await for their destiny. The leader of the urRu, the Master Ursu, raised a young Gelfling named Jen whose clan were slaughtered by the Sheksis. As the Great Conjunction of Thra s three suns draws near, a dying UrSu instructs Jen to fulfill a prophecy to heal the Crystal by first retrieving the Shard from Aughra. As UrSu passes, the Skeksis Emperor also dies with the Chamberlain skekSil exiled after losing a duel of succession against the General SkekUng. When the Skeksis learn of Jen s existence, they send their army of giant crab-like Garthim to capture him with skekSil following. Jen meets Aughra and enters her Orrey, which she uses to predict the motions of the heavens as she explained about the Conjunction before Jen select the Shard from a box full of shards. Aughra was about to explain  Jen s mission before the Garthim arrive and destroy the orrery, taking Aughra prisoner as Jen flees. Hearing the call of the Crystal, the urRu leave their valley to travel to the Skeksis Castle. On his journey through the swamp, Jen meets Kira, another surviving Gelfling who can communicate with animals. The two learn more about each other when they accidentally dream- fasted, seeing into each other s memories. They stay for a night with the Podlings who raised Kira, only for them and Kira s pet Fizzgig to flee when the Garthim raid the village with skekSil keeping the Garthim from pursuing then. Jen and Kira discover a ruined Gelfling city with ancient writing describing a prophecy; When single shines the triple sun, what was sundered and undone shall be whole, the two made one by Gelfling hand or else by none. They are interrupting by skekSil, revealing the prophecy was the reason for the Gelfling genocide while trying to trick them into coming with him to castle under false pretenses. But the Gelflings run off and reach the Castle of the Crystal on Landstriders, intercepting the Garthim that attacked Kira s village. While trying to free the captured Podlings, Kira, Jen and Fizzgig descend to the bottom of the Castle s dry moat and use a lower-level entrance to gain access. But they are intercepted by SkekSil, who buries Jen in a cave-in after being refused and takes Kira to Skeksis. skekSil is reinstated while giving Kira to Skeksis Scientist skekTek to be drained of her life essence for SkekUng to drink so that he can regain his youth. Aughra, imprisoned in the Scientist s laboratory, tells Kira to call for help from the captive animals; they break free in response and free Kira while causing skekTek to fall down the crystal shaft to his death. One of the urRu vanishes. Aughra frees herself soon after Kira left and before Jen arrived. The three suns begin to align as the Gelflings reunite at the Crystal Chamber as the Skeksis gather for the ritual that will grant them immortality. Jen leaps onto the Dark Crystal but drops the shard, with Kira taking it after Fizgig is knocked down the crystal shaft by skekUng and is saved by Aughra. Kira throws the Shard back to Jen as she fatally impaled by the Skeksis Ritual- Master skekZog, with an enraged Jen inserting the Shard into the Crystal and fulfilling the prophecy. The Garthim disintegrate and the Podling slaves regain their essence while the dark stone covering the Castle crumbles away to reveal a crystalline structure. The urRu arrive and use the Crystal to merge themselves and the Skeksis into tall glowing beings known as urSkeks. The urSkeks leader explains to Jen they had mistakenly shattered the Crystal long ago, splitting them into two races and decimating Thra, and that Jen s actions have restored them. The urSkeks revive Kira in gratitude for her sacrifice and Jen s courage, and then ascend to a higher level of existence, leaving the Crystal to the Gelflings on the now-rejuvenated Thra.

Henson’s inspiration for the visual aspects of the film came around 1975–76,[7] after he saw an illustration by Leonard B. Lubin in a 1975 edition of Lewis Carroll’s poetry showing crocodiles living in a palace and wearing elaborate robes and jewelry.[6][8][9] The film’s conceptual roots lay in Henson’s short-lived The Land of Gorch, which also took place in an alien world with no human characters.[8] According to co-director Frank Oz, Henson’s intention was to “get back to the darkness of the original Grimms’ Fairy Tales“, as he believed that it was unhealthy for children to never be afraid.[10]

Henson formulated his ideas into a 25-page story he entitled The Crystal, which he wrote whilst snowed in at an airport hotel.[6] Henson’s original concept was set in a world called Mithra, a wooded land with talking mountains, walking boulders and animal-plant hybrids. The original plot involved a malevolent race called the Reptus group, which took power in a coup against the peaceful Eunaze, led by Malcolm the Wise. The last survivor of the Eunaze was Malcolm’s son Brian, who was adopted by the Bada, Mithra’s mystical wizards.[11]

This draft contained elements in the final product, including the three races, the two funerals, the quest, a female secondary character, the Crystal, and the reunification of the two races during the Great Conjunction. “Mithra” was later abbreviated to “Thra”, due to similarities the original name had with an ancient Persian deity.[6] The character Kira was also at that point called Dee.[9]

Most of the philosophical undertones of the film were inspired from Jane Roberts‘ “Seth Material“. Henson kept multiple copies of the book Seth Speaks, and insisted that Froud and screenwriter David Odell read it prior to collaborating for the film. Odell later wrote that Aughra’s line “He could be anywhere then,” upon being told by Jen that his Master was dead, could not have been written without having first read Roberts’ material.[6]

The Bada were renamed “Ooo-urrrs”, which Henson would pronounce “very slowly and with a deep resonant voice.” Odell simplified the spelling to urRu, though they were ultimately named Mystics in the theatrical cut. The word “Skeksis” was initially meant to be the plural, with “Skesis” being singular, though this was dropped early in the filming process. Originally, Henson wanted the Skeksis to speak their own constructed language, with the dialogue subtitled in English.[6]

Accounts differ as to who constructed the language, and on what it was based. Gary Kurtz stated that the Skeksis language was conceived by author Alan Garner, who based it on Ancient Egyptian,[12] while Odell stated it was he who created it, and that it was formed from Indo-European roots. This idea was dropped after test screening audiences found the captions too distracting, but the original effect can be observed in selected scenes on the various DVD releases.[6] The language of the Podlings was based on Serbo-Croatian, with Kurtz noting that audience members fluent in Polish, Russian and other Slavic languages could understand individual words, but not whole sentences.[12]

Gordale Scar, one of the locations used in filming

The film was shot at Elstree Studios from April–September 1981, and exterior scenes were shot in the Scottish Highlands; Gordale Scar, North Yorkshire, England; and Twycross, Leicestershire, England. Once filming was completed, the film’s release was delayed after Lew Grade sold ITC Entertainment to Robert Holmes à Court, who was skeptical of the film’s potential, due to the bad reactions at the preview and the need to re-voice the film’s soundtrack. The film was afforded minimal advertisement and release until Henson bought it from Holmes à Court and funded its release with his own money.[6]

Brian Froud was chosen as concept artist after Henson saw one of his paintings in the book Once upon a time.[9] The characters in the film are elaborate puppets, and none are based on humans or any other specific Earth creature. Before its release, The Dark Crystal was billed as the first live-action film without any human beings on screen, and “a showcase for cutting-edge animatronics”.[13]

The hands and facial features of the groundbreaking animatronic puppets in the film were controlled with relatively primitive rods and cables, although radio control later took over many of the subtler movements.[14] Human performers inside the puppets supplied basic movement for the larger creatures, which in some cases was dangerous or exhausting; for example, the Garthim costumes were so heavy that the performers had to be hung up on a rack every few minutes to rest while still inside the costumes.[15] A mime from Switzerland was hired to help choreograph the movements of the puppeteers.[7]

When conceptualizing the Skeksis, Henson had in mind the Seven deadly sins, though because there were 10 Skeksis, some sins had to be invented or used twice.[16] Froud originally designed them to resemble deep sea fish,[17] but later designed them as “part reptile, part predatory bird, part dragon”, with an emphasis on giving them a “penetrating stare.”[16] Each Skeksis was conceived as having a different “job” or function, thus each puppet was draped in multicolored robes meant to reflect their personalities and thought processes.[17]

Each Skeksis suit required a main performer, whose arm would be extended over his or her head in order to operate the creature’s facial movements, while the other arm operated its left hand. Another performer would operate the Skeksis’ right arm. The Skeksis performers compensated for their lack of vision by having a monitor tied to their chests.[18]

In designing the Mystics, Froud portrayed them as being more connected to the natural world than their Skeksis counterparts. Henson intended to convey the idea that they were purged of all materialistic urges, yet were incapable of acting in the real world. Froud also incorporated geometric symbolism throughout the film in order to hint at the implied unity of the two races.[17] The Mystics were the hardest creatures to perform, as the actors had to walk on their haunches with their right arm extended forward, with the full weight of the head on it. Henson himself could hold a position in a Mystic costume for only 5–10 seconds.[16]

The Gelflings were designed and sculpted by Wendy Midener. They were difficult to perform, as they were meant to be the most human creatures in the film, and thus their movements, particularly their gait, had to be as realistic as possible. During scenes when the Gelflings’ legs were off-camera, the performers walked on their knees in order to make the character’s movements more lifelike.[18] According to Odell, the character Jen was Henson’s way of projecting himself into the film.[17] Jen was originally meant to be blue, in homage to the Hindu deity Rama, but this idea was scrapped early on.[8]

Aughra was originally envisioned as a “busy, curious little creature” called Habeetabat, though the name was rejected by Froud, who found the name too similar to Habitat, a retailer he despised. The character was re-envisioned as a seer or prophetess, and renamed Aughra. In selecting a voice actor for Aughra, Henson was inspired by Zero Mostel‘s performance as a “kind of insane bird trying to overcome Tourettes syndrome” on Watership Down. Although the character was originally voiced by Frank Oz, Henson wanted a female voice, and subsequently selected Billie Whitelaw.[6]

The character Fizzgig was invented by Frank Oz, who wanted a character who served the same function as the Muppet poodle Foo-Foo, feeling that, like Miss Piggy, the character Kira needed an outlet for her caring, nurturing side.[6] The character’s design was meant to convey the idea of a “boyfriend-repellant”, to contrast the popular idea that it is easier to form a bond with a member of the opposite sex with the assistance of a cute dog.[17]

The Podlings were envisioned as people in complete harmony with their natural surroundings, thus Froud based their design on that of potatoes.[16] Their village was modeled on the Henson family home.[17]

In designing the Garthim, Froud took inspiration from the discarded carapaces of his and Henson’s lobster dinners.[9][17] The Garthim were first designed three years into the making of the film, and were made largely of fiberglass. Each costume weighed around 70 lbs (32 kg), thus Garthim performers still in costume had to frequently be suspended on racks in order to recuperate.[16]

The Dark Crystal was the last film in which cinematographer Oswald Morris, BSC, involved himself in before retiring. He shot all the footage with a “light flex”, a unit placed in front of the camera which gave a faint color tint to each scene in order to give the film a more fairy tale atmosphere similar to Froud’s original paintings.[16]

The film’s soundtrack was composed by Trevor Jones, who became involved before shooting had started.[19] Jones initially wanted to compose a score which reflected the settings’ oddness by using acoustical instruments, electronics and building structures. This was scrapped in favor of an orchestral score performed by the London Symphony Orchestra once Gary Kurtz became involved, as it was felt that an unusual score would alienate audiences. The main theme of the film is a composite of the Skeksis’ and Mystics’ themes.[20] Jones wrote the baby Landstrider theme in honor of his newly born daughter.[21]

The Dark Crystal was released in 858 theaters in North America on December 17, 1982. In its initial weekends, it had a limited appeal with audiences for various reasons, including parental concerns about its dark nature, creative connections with Henson’s family-friendly Muppet franchise, and competition from other films, including Tootsie and the already massively successful E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial.[22] It made $40,577,001 in its box office run, managing to turn a profit. The film became the 16th highest-grossing film of 1982 within North America.[23] To date, it remains as one of the highest-grossing puppet animated films of all time, particularly for its domestic gross.[citation needed]

The film received a mixed response upon its original release, but has earned a more positive reception in later years, becoming a favorite with fans of Henson and fantasy.[24] It currently holds a 79% approval rating on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, based on 47 reviews with an average rating of 6.5/10. The website’s critical consensus reads, “The Dark Crystals narrative never quite lives up to the movie’s visual splendor, but it remains an admirably inventive and uniquely intense entry in the Jim Henson canon.”[25] Vincent Canby of The New York Times negatively reviewed the film, describing it as a “watered down J. R. R. Tolkien… without charm as well as interest.”[26] Kevin Thomas gave it a more positive assessment in the Los Angeles Times: “Unlike many screen fantasies, The Dark Crystal casts its spell from its very first frames and proceeds so briskly that it’s over before you realize it. You’re left with the feeling that you have just awakened from a dream.”[27]

In 2008, the American Film Institute nominated this film for its Top 10 Fantasy Films list.[28]

The Dark Crystal was first released on VHS, Betamax, and CED by Thorn EMI Video in 1983. The company’s successor HBO Video re-released it on VHS in 1988 and also released it in widescreen on LaserDisc for the first time. On July 29, 1994, Jim Henson Video (through Disney’s Buena Vista Home Video) re-released the film again on VHS and on a new widescreen LaserDisc. On October 5, 1999, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Jim Henson Home Entertainment gave the film one final VHS release and also released it on DVD for the first time and it has had multiple re-releases since including a Collector’s Edition on November 25, 2003, and a 25th Anniversary Edition on August 14, 2007. It was also released on UMD Universal Media Disc for PlayStation Portable (PSP) on July 26, 2005. It was released on Blu-ray on September 29, 2009.

Another anniversary edition of The Dark Crystal was announced in December 2017, with a brand-new restoration from the original camera negative, and was released on Blu-ray and 4K Blu-ray on March 6, 2018.[36]Prior to the 4K/Blu-Ray release, Fathom Events presented the restored print of The Dark Crystal in US cinemas on February 25 and 28, and March 3 and 6, 2018.[citation needed]

A tie-in novelization of the film was written by A. C. H. Smith. Henson took a keen interest in the novelization, as he considered it a legitimate part of the film’s world rather than just an advertisement. He originally asked Alan Garner to write it, but he declined on account of prior engagements. Henson and Smith met several times over meals to discuss the progress of the manuscript. According to Smith, the only major disagreement they had arose over his dislike of the Podlings, which he considered “boring”. He included a scene in which a Garthim carrying a sackful of Podlings fell down a cliff and crushed them. Henson considered this scene to be an element of “gratuitous cruelty” that did not fit well into the scope of the story. In order to assist Smith in his visualizing the world of The Dark Crystal, Henson invited him to visit Elstree Studios during the filming of the film.[37] In June 2014, Archaia Entertainment reprinted the novelization, though included extras such as some of Brian Froud’s illustrations, and Jim Henson’s notes.[38]

During the development phase of The Dark Crystal, director Jim Henson and writer David Odell discussed ideas for a possible sequel. Almost 25 years later, Odell and his wife Annette Duffy pieced together what Odell could recall from these discussions to draft a script for The Power of the Dark Crystal.[39] Genndy Tartakovsky was initially hired in January 2006 to direct and produce the film through The Orphanage animation studios in California.[40]

However, faced with considerable delays, the Jim Henson Company announced a number of significant changes in a May 2010 press release: It was going to partner with Australia-based Omnilab Media to produce the sequel, screenwriter Craig Pearce had reworked Odell and Duffy’s script, and directing team Michael and Peter Spierig were replacing Tartakovsky. In addition, the film would be released in stereoscopic 3D.[41]

During a panel held at the Museum of the Moving Image on September 18, 2011, to commemorate the legacy of Jim Henson, his daughter Cheryl revealed that the project was yet again on hiatus.[42] By February 2012 Omnilab Media and the Spierig brothers had parted ways with the Henson Company due to budgetary concerns; production on the film has been suspended indefinitely.[43] In May 2014, Lisa Henson confirmed that the film was still in development, but it is not yet in pre-production.[44]

Ultimately, plans for a feature film were scrapped, and the unproduced screenplay was adapted into a 12-issue comic book series The Power of the Dark Crystal from Archaia Comics and BOOM! Studios, released in 2017.[45]

On July 1, 2013, an announcement was made by The Jim Henson Company, in association with Grosset and Dunlap (a publishing division of Penguin Group USA) that they would be hosting a Dark Crystal Author Quest contest to write a new Dark Crystal novel, as a prequel to the original film. It would be set in the Dark Crystal world during a Gelfling Gathering. The winning author was J.M. (Joseph) Lee of Minneapolis, Minnesota, whose story, “The Ring of Dreams,” was selected from almost 500 contest submissions.[46]

The novel series consists of four books: Shadows of the Dark Crystal, released on June 28, 2016; Song of the Dark Crystal, released July 18, 2017; Tides of the Dark Crystal, released December 24, 2018; and Flames of the Dark Crystal, released on August 27, 2019. Together, the novels serve to establish the setting of the Netflix series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, focusing on adventures of some of the series’ side characters.

In May 2017, it was announced that The Jim Henson Company in association with Netflix would produce a prequel series titled The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. Shooting began in the fall of 2017 with Louis Leterrier as director.[47] The prequel was written by Jeffrey Addiss, Will Matthews, and Javier Grillo-Marxuach.[48] There are ten episodes, and the series explores the world created for the original film.[48] On May 21, 2019, it was announced that the series would premiere on August 30, 2019.[49][5]

                            Mako Island of Secrets  

Mako island of Secerts  is an Australian television programme for children and teenagers. Internationally released as Mako Mermaids, the show is a spin-off H2o: Just Add Water and is produced by Jonathan M. Shiff in association with Network Ten Nickelodeon. The seriers follows Zac, a teenage boy who turns into a merman after accidentally falling into a Magical pool of water on the fictional island of Mako. :Plot: Zac is a teenage boy who decides to camp on Mako Island, unaware that three mermaids, Sirena, Nixie, and Lyla, who  are guardians of the island, are watching him.  That night, when the moon rises, the boy comes into contact with the magic water of the Moon Pool. The  following morning,  Zac discovers that he has the ability to control and manipulate water. Later, after accidentally falling into the water, he finds that he has also become a merman with a fish-like tail. His new- found merman abilities will cause problems for the mermaids. After their pod casts them out for allowing Zac to visit the island, the three mermaids, curious about living on land and motivated to remove Zac s powers, venture onto the land and learn to live among humans. In series 2, the mermaids continue to discover Mako s secrets and learn more about the merman chamber. While Nixie and Lyla go in search of a new home, Sirena is left with Ondina and Mimmi, Mako mermaids who continue the effort to remove Zac s powers and reclaim the island for their pod. Evie, Zac s girlfriend, faces her own battles when she becomes a mermaid herself, and the others try to help her cope with the change. In series 3, with Sirena away with Aquata, Zac, Ondina and Mimmi, are joined by Weilan an Eastern mermaid who has fled to Mako for sanctuary from a magical dragon. The mermaids must devise a way to defeat the dragon before it destroys all the pod has worked to save.

However, Zac catches a glimpse of her tail, making him believe he may not be the only merman.

Meanwhile, Rita begins giving the girls lessons on how to use their powers. During a teacher-parent conference concerning his grades, Zac notices Rita’s great caution around water, confirming his suspicion that she is also a mermaid. With this knowledge, he decides to use it to his advantage. With her cover blown, Rita tells the girls she must leave town before Zac exposes her.

To get back at the girls, Zac uses the same ability to help find David a new replacement singer. But when Evie tells him that David actually wanted to sing with Sirena all along, Zac changes his mind. Meanwhile, Nixie and Lyla regret what they have done to Sirena and apologise to her.

Zac, Evie, Cam, and Rita all attend a lunch hosted by Zac’s parents. The girls crash the lunch hoping for an opportunity to recover the ring. Zac manages to get his hands on the ring first. While Zac and the girls fight for possession of the ring, they accidentally zap Rita with the ring’s magic, knocking her unconscious. In the process, Lyla manages to snatch the ring from Zac.

During the interview, Evie becomes suspicious that Rita and the girls are hiding something from her and begins asking them probing questions. Zac, realising that Evie is getting too close to his and the girl’s secret, abruptly ends the interview before Evie can find out more. While David photographs Rita and the girls, Zac searches the house and discovers Rita’s secret grotto.

Sirena reveals to Zac, Ondina, and Mimmi that she has kept the stone hidden at Rita’s grotto the entire time. Although the stone has seemingly lost its power, it becomes active again when Zac touches it due to his strong connection to Mako Island. Rita realises that the chamber’s purpose is to drain the magic from the moon pool, which in turn will basically destroy every mermaid. Zac takes the stone and goes to hide it in a safe place. When Erik realises Zac has the stone, he confronts him. Erik believes there has to be more to the chamber’s purpose besides destroying mermaids and becomes angry when Zac refuses to activate the chamber. He demands custody of the stone but Zac refuses to hand it over. Realising the stone is not safe with him, Zac turns to Cam and asks him to hide it. Erik tries to bribe Cam into giving him the stone but Cam refuses to lose his friendship with Zac twice and, instead, gives it back to the mermaids.

He successfully deactivates the chamber and saves the mermaids but seemingly dies in the process. Desperate to save her brother, Mimmi grabs the stone and places it over Zac’s heart.

    The next full moon is approaching and Zac will have an opportunity to learn about what the merman chamber does. Ondina is worried about what might happen if Zac activates it but Mimmi refuses to go against her brother’s wishes and intends to let him activate the chamber. At the Moon Pool, Ondina runs into Veridia who has come up with a plan to destroy the chamber by having Ondina use her power to turn the chamber’s power against itself when Zac activates it. Ondina agrees under the condition that she, Mimmi, and Sirena be accepted back into the pod and Veridia agrees. Later, however, Zac changes his mind about activating the chamber when Rita informs him that he and Mimmi are descended from the merman who built the chamber and refused to activate it after falling in love with a mermaid. Ondina meets with Zac and manipulates him into continuing with his original plan to learn the chamber’s purpose. Zac agrees under the condition that he goes alone. That night, Zac sneaks away to the merman chamber with Ondina following him. When Mimmi learns that Zac had lied through a vision, she and the others rush to the chamber. When Zac enters the code into the chamber, it seemingly recreates the trident. As Zac reaches for it, Ondina stops him and prepares to carry out Veridia’s orders. The others intervene, warning Ondina that destroying the chamber may destroy the island itself. Zac reaches for the trident again but it turns out to be a hologram that signifies the trident is necessary to start the chamber. With the trident already destroyed, the chamber’s threat is seemingly over. The next day, Veridia lifts the girl’s banishment and informs them that the pod will return by the next full moon.

Her excitement is short-lived, however, when Erik brings up the possibility that returning to the pod will mean she may never be able to see him again. Ondina becomes depressed, not wanting to have to choose between Erik or the pod. Erik decides to throw her a party at the café to cheer her up. When a pendant of Rita’s goes missing, Mimmi accuses Erik of stealing it to make money for the party. Erik does not deny it, but is hurt by the accusation. When the pendant turns up and Mimmi learns that Erik had actually gotten the money using his own secret stash of treasure he collected out at sea, she apologises to him. Meanwhile, Cam and Carly have trouble admitting their true feelings for each other. When the party ends, Cam musters up the courage and admits his true feelings for Carly.

Sirena is able to get them out of trouble by telling the crowd that Mimmi and Ondina are actresses in mermaid costumes for an attraction. She then gets Mimmi and Ondina to reconcile, and the girl gets punished for stealing the toy dolphin. Meanwhile Cam and Carly have their first date fishing near Mako Island. Their boat’s anchor gets stuck forcing them to swim to the island and await rescue. Much to Cam’s humiliation, any attempt he makes to impress Carly, she does better. Zac arrives and helps Cam by freeing the anchor and letting him take the credit to impress her. Back at Rita’s grotto, the girls decide that they must find a way to get the pod to see that humans and mermen can be trusted so they can live in both worlds.

Carly witnesses one of the sneezes and becomes suspicious that Evie is hiding something from her. The mermaids try to come up with a cure, but it merely changes the effect of the sneeze from fire to ice. Eventually, all three mermaids also catch the cold. At the café, Evie sneezes and freezes Cam in front of Carly. Zac and the girls then flee to Evie’s house.

    51 25 “The Trident Stone” Grant Brown Sam Carroll 2 August 2015 29 May 2015

    Erik learns from Cam that while the trident was broken, the stone that powers it wasn’t. Erik concludes that it is the stone rather than the trident that can activate the merman chamber. Sirena reveals to Zac, Ondina, and Mimmi that she has kept the stone hidden at Rita’s grotto the entire time. Although the stone has seemingly lost its power, it becomes active again when Zac touches it due to his strong connection to Mako Island. Rita realises that the chamber’s purpose is to drain the magic from the moon pool, which in turn will basically destroy every mermaid. Zac takes the stone and goes to hide it in a safe place. When Erik realises Zac has the stone, he confronts him. Erik believes there has to be more to the chamber’s purpose besides destroying mermaids and becomes angry when Zac refuses to activate the chamber. He demands custody of the stone but Zac refuses to hand it over. Realising the stone is not safe with him, Zac turns to Cam and asks him to hide it. Erik tries to bribe Cam into giving him the stone but Cam refuses to lose his friendship with Zac twice and, instead, gives it back to the mermaids. Erik later finds the stone in Rita’s grotto and is confronted by Mimmi and Zac. Erik uses the stone to drain Zac’s powers. With the stone now in his possession and Zac’s powers inside it, Erik will be able to activate the chamber.

A now powerless Zac has seemingly given up despite encouragement from Mimmi, Evie, and Cam. Zac later musters up the courage and follows Erik to the chamber to try and stop him. The girls also race to the chamber to stop Erik. Zac fights with Erik for the stone but he shakes him off and finally activates the chamber. The girls attempt to destroy the stone with their moon rings, but it merely absorbs their power. The chamber drains the magic from the moon pool and slowly begins to kill the mermaids except Evie. Horrified by what he’s done, Erik tries to deactivate the chamber but is unsuccessful. Evie arrives and helps an injured Zac to his feet. He successfully deactivates the chamber and saves the mermaids but seemingly dies in the process. Desperate to save her brother, Mimmi grabs the stone and places it over Zac’s heart. The stone restores Zac’s power and revives him. The stone then crumbles, ending the chamber’s threat to mermaids for good. The next day, Erik tries to apologise to Ondina, but she refuses to forgive him and breaks up with him and he leaves the Gold Coast in shame. Sirena reveals she’s a mermaid to David. Veridia meets the group at Rita’s grotto and praises Zac for his heroic actions. She makes him and Evie honorary members of the pod and gives Evie her own moon ring. The group joyfully swims out to greet the pod as they return to Mako at last.

    When a Chinese mermaid named Weilan accidentally releases a water dragon from an ancient relic, she flees to Mako Island with the creature in pursuit. Mermaids Ondina and Mimmi must defend Mako Island and the Gold Coast from destruction.[2] Series three debuted in Australia on 15 May 2016 on Eleven and was released on Netflix on 27 May 2016.[1] It features 16 half-hour episodes.[2]

karaktär

Emma har en säker och ansvarsfull, om något kontrollerande, personlighet. Hon tenderar att oroa sig för att saker och ting kommer ur kontroll. Hon är väldigt organiserad. Att leva i en perfekt familjelivsstil och utvecklade hon ett behov av att vara perfektionist. Hon tycker om att vara den mest organiserade av flickorna och kan inte hjälpa men uppmuntra andra att göra detsamma. Förutom att hon var en driven person, ägnade Emma en gång sin fritid i träning för sin regionala simnings  konkurrens. Althouge hon avgick efter att ha förvandlats till en sjöjungfu eftersom det hindrar henne från att simma, Emma behåller lite av sin driven personlighet. Hon verkar vara mer empatisk än sin vän Rikki Chadwick när det gäller att förstå andra människors känslor och dagliga problem. Hon tenderar att uttrycka många oro för sina vänner och skulle till och med gå ut ur sitt sätt att försöka göra det omöjliga för dem, till och med att försöka sitt bästa för att återställa Lousie Chatham s sönderfallande båt. Althouge Emma är ofta den mest samvetsgrann och omtänksamma av de the flickorna, ibland kan hon vara pedantisk och kontrollerade en gång förslår hon att hon tänker tugga ett föreskrivet antal gånger innan man sväljer som en normal praxis.
