In a few minutes, GMA-7 will reveal the new cast members for the "requel" of the hit telefantasya Encantadia.
Before the big reveal, director Mark Reyes and lead visual artist Noel Layon Flores gave a sneak preview of the new world of Encantadia at the cosplay event NexCon3 held yesterday, April 4.
During the panel interview, Direk Mark revealed that viewers can look forward to several changes they made in the story that would still feel familiar to fans of the original version, which was first aired in 2005.
Direk Mark was quoted saying, "It’s based on the mythology of Encantadia, but we’re going to fix things that we thought needed fixing in the original run. There are a lot of things that will be familiar and that will feel nostalgic, but there will be new twists and characters that will surprise viewers."
Meanwhile, Noel admitted that one of the challenges he faced while redesigning Encantadia is to make it for the millenials. He said, "One of my major considerations [for the requel] was designing for the millennial generation, the gaming generation."
The show is rumored to be aired during the third quarter of 2016. Check out new details about Encantadia 2016:
