Other new series include ‘Royal Academy’ and ‘My American Friend.’
Rainbow, the leading animation studio that has celebrated its twentieth anniversary, announced that it is bringing three eagerly anticipated kids shows to MIPTV Stand R7.H2 – Winx series 7, Royal Academy (working title) and My American Friend.
Winx Club series 7 carries on the theme of recent Winx releases by carrying a strong environmental message. In this adventure the fairies discover the real importance of the rare Fairy Animals, which they must save from Kalshara, an evil shape-shifter and her clumsy brother, Brafilius. The theme of endangered animals recurs throughout the series as the Winx establish an Animal Rescue Park on Earth, where they look after vulnerable animals such as pandas and tigers. The girls also undertake missions in the Magic Dimension and Earth to raise public awareness about the animal cause. This builds to their final mission – to discover the ultimate power of the Fairy Animals, which can give control over all the animals of the Magic Universe.
Royal Academy (working title) is a hilarious and exciting new take on some of our best-loved fairy tales and focuses on the adventures of Rose Cinderella, a normal girl who suddenly she finds herself in the world of Fairy Tales where she discovers that Cinderella is… her granny! Rose is enrolled at the fabled Royal Academy where her fellow students include Hawk SnowWhite, Travis Beast, Astoria Rapunzel and Hope LeFrog, all of them belonging to the school founding families. This sparkling new series asks the question - what would you do if you had the opportunity to live in the world of Fairy Tales?
My American Friend is Rainbow’s live action project aimed at pre-teens, which tells the story of Jessie - an American girl with a dream of becoming the world’s greatest fashion designer. She gets her chance on her 16th birthday, when she becomes the youngest contestant ever to win a two-year scholarship at the Milan Fashion Academy. There she meets Bianca, a self-proclaimed Italian “princess,” and together they discover secrets that will change their lives forever! This is the story of two girls growing up. Jessie and Bianca come from two different worlds, but they have one goal – to share what is in their hearts through fashion and music!
“MIPTV 2015 presents the perfect showcase for these three new series,” says Mr Straffi, Founder and CEO of Rainbow Group. “A new series of Winx Club is always a cause for excitement and we are also very proud of Royal Academy and My American Friend – two magical new brands that have huge potential.”
