After a long wait, ABS-CBN’s version of Darna is finally coming to television.

The official full trailer of the series was launched on July 7, 2022, following the launch of its teaser poster on July 6.

The three-minute video shows the journey of Narda (Jane de Leon) and her reluctance to take on the responsibility of being Darna.

However, no matter what she does to avoid her fate, the stone always finds its way back to her to remind her of her mission.

Aside from the journey of Narda, other important characters are also shown in the trailer: Leonor (Iza Calzado), Ding (Zaijian Jaranilla), Regina a.k.a. Valentina (Janella Salvador), and Brian (Joshua Garcia).

Darna is expected to air on all ABS-CBN platforms this August 2022.

Here are some of the things we noticed in Darna’s full trailer:

Narda has always had the heart to save others, including her bullied classmate in high school, Brian (Joshua).

Just as Narda is about to throw the stone to Leonor, her mother is killed by the creature.
