European animation studio Rainbow is showcasing two of its new properties at MIPTV this year–“Maggie & Bianca Fashion Friends” and “World of Winx.”
“Maggie & Bianca Fashion Friends”–originally titled “My American Friend”–is Rainbow’s first live-action production and tells the story of Maggie, an ordinary American girl with a dream of becoming a fashion designer. She gets the chance on her 16th birthday when she becomes the youngest contest ever to win a two-year scholarship at the Milan Fashion Academy. While there, she meets Bianca, a self-proclaimed Italian princess, and together they discover secrets that will change their lives forever.
“World of Winx” will star the characters from “Winx Club” and will follow the Winx fairies when they visit Earth as scouts for a talent show. As they search, they come across the Talent Thief–a villain who is capturing gifted children–and must go undercover and hide their fairy identities in order to defeat him.
Rainbow will also highlight “Regal Academy,” which debuted at MIPJunior last year.
