The first part of the teaser shows distinct areas in the Philippines.

There were those who said the show reminded them of Hollywood movies.

There were others who criticized Bagani for being too similar to shows that GMA-7 did in the past.

To date, the video Bagani: Ang Unang Sulyap sa Isang Bagong Kasaysayan has registered over 168,000 views since its launch last night, January 31.
The full trailer is scheduled to be released on February 7.
In December 2017, Mark Duane Angos, the headwriter for ABS-CBN Star Creatives, and GMA consultant Suzette Doctolero had a word war because of Bagani.
Suzette reacted to a netizen who hinted that Bagani was copied from the Kapuso telefantasya Encantadia.
She wrote on her Twitter account: "May binago naman sila ah. Yung naka violet. Di sa enca ginaya. Pang circus ang costume. Hahahaha."
In response, Mark wrote on the micro-blogging site: "You should get out of this ‘originality discourse’ especially if you’re the one who copied CW’s Arrow. My friendly advice, focus on stories you’re writing."
PEPsters, what can you say about the first teaser of ABS-CBN's Bagani?
