    Here's What The "Fate: The Winx Saga" Cast Looks Like Next To The Cartoons They're Based On

    Not me suddenly caring about fictional fairies again...

    1. Bloom

    Live-action version played by: Abigail Cowen

    Who she is: She's a 16-year-old fire fairy who just found out she has magical powers. She's also a changeling, which means that after she was born, she was swapped with a human baby and grew up on Earth.

    Fun fact: The Bloom-Sky-Stella love triangle didn't exist in the animated series. Bloom actually starts dating Sky very early in the original series and she's best friends with Stella.

    2. Aisha

    Who she is: She's Bloom's roommate, friend, and a member of the Winx club. She's also a water fairy.

    Fun fact: Aisha doesn't come into the animated series until the second season. While her animated counterpart is known as a "Fairy of Waves," she is also able to manipulate a pink substance that can act as a shield, bubble, or magic beam.

    3. Stella

    Who she is: She's one of Bloom's suitemates and a member of the Winx club. She's a mind fairy and an empath, which causes her to feel everything those around her feel.

    Fun fact: In the animated series, Musa's powers are actually related to music and she can manipulate sound waves.

    5. Sky

    Who he is: He's a specialist, whose job it is to protect the fairies of Alfea.

    Fun fact: In the animated show, the specialists actually go to their own school called the Red Fountain School of Specialists, but in Fate: The Winx Saga, the specialists attend Alfea with the fairies.

    6. Riven

    Who she is: He's a specialist and Sky's best friend. He's also a little bit of an outcast and likes causing trouble for the fairies.

    Fun fact: In the animated series, he's actually not a "bad boy" type like his live-action counterpart. He and Musa date on and off for the majority of the series.

    7. Beatrix / The Trix

    Who she is: She's an air fairy who can manipulate electricity. She's also one of the main villains of Season 1 and tries to uncover all of Alfea's dark secrets.

    Fun fact: The Trix are a group of three evil fairies, and they're the main villains of the animated series. However, for the live-action show, they're all combined into one person: Beatrix.

    Who she is: She's Bloom's human mother who raised her on Earth.
