While developments for Liza Soberano's version of Darna are still under the wraps, fans of the Pinoy superheroine got excited upon seeing a video clip of what seemed to be a teaser for the upcoming film adaptation.
Visual effects company Mothership, Inc. recently uploaded a video compilation of its previous projects, including a breakdown of visual effects in movies such as Kung Fu Divas (2013) and Kubot: The Aswang Chronicles 2 (2014).
A breakdown of Darna's teaser shown during the 2015 Metro Manila Film Festival was also included. It showed Darna running to save lives after a volcanic eruption.
The teaser did not show the face of Darna and instead, focused on the details of her costume.
So far, no updates about Darna have been made public, including the design of the costume.
It may be recalled that at the time of the teaser's release, the actress who would portray Darna was not yet picked.
Back then, fans were still hoping that Angel Locsin—who portrayed Darna in GMA-7's TV adaptation in 2005—will reprise the role.
However, she had to drop out of the cast due to health reasons.
In May 2017, it was announced that Liza Soberano was chosen to portray the Pinay superheroine in Star Cinema and Reality Entertainment's adaptation.
With regards to the costume, Darna director Erik Matti said in a previous interview that the creation of the new costume is "more than the aesthetic, more than the cosmetic, more than just trying to be sexy."
