Encantadia is a Filipino fantasy television series by GMA Network. It is a reboot to the 2005 fantasy series of the same name. It previously starred Sunshine Dizon as Pirena, Amihan by Iza Calzado, Karylle as Alena and Danaya by Diana Zubiri. Wikipedia

Some of the Characters
  • Hagorn (John Arcilla)
  • Pirena (Glaiza de Castro)
  • Amihan (Kylie Padilla)
  • Alena (Gabbi Garcia)
  • Danaya (Sanya Lopez)
  • Aquil (Rocco Nacino)
  • Hitano (Pancho Magno)
  • Mira (Kate Valdez)
  • Lira (Mikee Quintos)
  • Ybrahim/Ybarro (Ruru Madrid)
  • Wahid (Andre Paras)
  • Wantuk (Buboy Villar)
  • Cassiopea (Solenn Heussaff)




 Reboots or re-imaginations of movies or TV series normally pale in comparison to the original or predecessors, but thankfully, this 2016 series of Encantadia is steered by the same navigator or Captain of the Ship, Director Mark V. Reyes V.  The series is at the very least at par with the original.

Cellphones with strong signals and long battery lives are not questioned because the time frame there is different from the time frame of the land of the mortals...in this case, The Philippines.

Mikee Quintos is awesome.   She's no Jennylyn Mercado, but she gave Milagros and gives Lira a new persona that is lovable in her own right.

I don't like the dragon like creatures, but they are supposed to be hateful anyway.

Sanya Lopez is extra beautiful in this series.  She was already pretty in The Half Sisters, but here, she's so sultry and strong.  She has great on-screen chemistry with real life beau, Rocco Nacino.

Even if I don't know him personally, I am a proud relative of Ruru Madrid(his mom is a Misa), but I'm not certain if he's a nephew or a great nephew/grand nephew.  Ergo, don't ask me to let you meet him(kasi nga di niya ako kilala sa laki ng tribo namin).


*****

Glaiza de Castro is an effective contrabida as Pirena(even if I love the way Sunshine Dizon portrayed her better, Glaiza is doing a great job as Pirena) and Gabbi Garcia's depiction of Alena is different from Karylle's, but she's doing fine as well.


*****
Kate Valdez, besides being beautiful, is an actor to watch out for.  She's a natural!


*****

Kylie Padilla is wonderful as Amihan and John Arcilla is effective as Hagorn.


*****

It's great to see Diana Zubiri and Sunshine Dizon in this version.

2005 Poster

ENCANTADIA changed Filipino prime time viewership in 2005.  At first a lot of people raised their eyebrows.  How come the Philippine underworld or middle earth speak in Balagtasan or deep Tagalog interjected with the Enchanta Language, but their names were based in Greek Mythology or something like that?

Even so, we became hooked after some time.  The special effects and the acting were almost seamless.  The dialogue and the story(plus back stories) were(are) timeless.

Yes, it was a Fantaserye, but we could relate with the characters, so it "could be" real.  It could "happen" in real life.
