GMA-7 has very been busy working on the requel (remake + sequel) of Encantadia starring Glaiza de Castro as Sang'gre Pirena, Kylie Padilla as Sang'gre Amihan, Gabbi Garcia as Sang'gre Alena, and Sanya Lopez as Sang'gre Danaya.
The Kapuso show directed by Mark Reyes has started shooting major scenes with the new cast members of Encantadia.
We've seen Solenn Heusaff dressed up as Cassiopeia and doing her fighting sequences for the much-awaited telefantasya.
This time, the Sang'gres gave a sneak peek of their costumes on the Kapuso show.
Last May 16, Direk Mark shared a photo of Glaiza and Sanya as Sang'gre Pirena and Sang'gre Danaya in their "training gear."
In his Instagram account, Direk Mark provided the caption: "Special first reveal! Sanya Lopez and Glaiza De Castro as "Danaya" and "Pirena" in their training suits. @glaizaredux @sanyalopez #Encantadia2016 #encantadiks #gmanetwork"
WARRIOR COSTUMES. The show also shared close-up photos of the new costumes on its official Instagram account.
Earlier today, May 19, the Kapuso network mounted a photoshoot of the whole cast and crew. Encantadia's Head of Design Noel Layon Flores shared a few behind-the-scenes photos from the shoot on his Instagram account. The photos were reposted by @gma.encantadia, a fan account on Instagram.
One of the photos showed Sang'gre Pirena (Glaiza de Castro) wearing her headgear:
Sang'gre Amihan (Kylie Padilla) also donned her warrior costume:

Last but not the least, here's a sneak peek of Sang'gre Danaya in her warrior costume:
ROYAL GOWNS. Aside from the warrior costumes, Encantadiks have been waiting for the reveal of the Sang'gres' royal attire. The gowns were designed by renowed Filipino designer Francis Libiran.
Last Tuesday, May 17, the unfinished gowns designed by Francis were revealed on Nelson Canlas' report for 24 Oras. In his interview, Francis said he did research for the detailed design of the Sang'gres' couture gowns.
"Nasa Youtube ako nang matagal talaga to research on each character. Tapos tiningnan ko yung mga pictures ng girls para talagang ibagay yung designs for them," said the designer whose creations have previously been featured on America's Next Top Model.
"Yung costume pa lang nangungusap na. Nakakatuwa na we're working with a renowned designer," said Glaiza, the new Pirena.
