Twelve years since GMA Network introduced a noble winged race, Mulawin vs. Ravena has once again taken flight on television.
Following previous events, Aguiluz and Alwina, the saviours of the human and Mulawin race, successfully defeated the Ravena tribe in their quest to annihilate the human race.
In Mulawin vs. Ravena, the sequel continues the fight between good and evil as both tribes of half-human, half-bird citizens strive to defeat each other.
Dennis Trillo returns as Gabriel while Heart Evangelista takes over the Alwina role previously portrayed by Angel Locsin.
After being rejected by Alwina, Gabriel embraced his fate as a Ravena and is now the King of Halconia. With a new ruler, the Ravena tribe strengthens its forces. While no major battles spawned among the Mulawins and Ravenas over the years, some believe that this is merely the calm before the storm and war is imminent.
The new Kapuso primetime series taps Lovi Poe as Magindara, the goddess of the sea and daughter of Sandawa; Carla Abellana as Aviona, one of the most respected and well-loved Mulawin; and Regine Velasquez-Alcasid as Sandawa, the immortal goddess of nature and keeper of Mt. Apo.
Tom Rodriguez is cast as Rodrigo, a human who falls in love with and marries Aviona while Ariel Rivera plays Panabon, representative of the Tabon or Mulawin half-bloods.
Kapuso love teams are also featured in this primetime show.
Bea Binene is Anya, the half-blood daughter of Aviona; Derrick Monasterio breathes life to Almiro, the noble son of Aguiluz and Alwina destined to be the ruler of Avila; one of the network’s most sought-after actors, Kiko Estrada, also steps in as Rafael, Almiro’s best friend turned mortal enemy; Bianca Umali is Lawiswis, a beautiful young Avian and the love of Pagaspas’ life; and Miguel Tanfelix soars once again as Pagaspas, a former owl that transitioned into a Mulawin and has now come at the right age to declare his love for Lawiswis.
The mortals who join them are: Angelu De Leon as Lourdes, Bobby Andrews as Dionisio, Joko Diaz as Antonio, Martin del Rosario as Aramis, Charee Pineda as Savanna, and Nova Villa as Lola Elo; Mga Mulawin: Roi Vinzon as Daragit, Valerie Concepcion as Tuka, JC Tiuseco as Tangos, David Licauco as Malik; Mga Ravena: Chynna Ortaleza as Reyna Rashana, Dion Ignacio as Siklab, Winwyn Marquez as Ribay and TJ Trinidad as Greco.
