FANS and fol­low­ers of the wildly suc­cess­ful his­tor­i­cal film “Hen­eral Luna” have a rea­son to cel­e­brate as the cast of its highly an­tic­i­pated se­quel “Goyo: Ang Batang Hen­eral” has fi­nally been re­vealed. The of­fi­cial an­nounce­ment was posted on the of­fi­cial “Goyo” Face­book page yes­ter­day along with the photo of the whole cast.

Paulo Avelino, who reprises his role as the young gen­eral Gre­go­rio del Pi­lar, leads the cast. Join­ing him (in al­pha­bet­i­cal order) are: Ja­son Aba­los, Art Acuña, Ben­jamin Alves, Alvin An­son, Carlo Aquino, Christo­pher Aron­son, RK Ba­gats­ing, Perla Bautista, Nonie Buen­camino, Roeder Ca­mañag, Mon Con­fi­ado, Carlo Cruz, Ja­son Dewey, Miguel Faust­mann, Bret Jack­son, Ronnie Lazaro, Guji Loren­zana, Jo­jit Lorenzo, Leo Martinez, Lorenz Martinez, Karl Me­d­ina, Epy Quizon, Che Ramos, E. A. Rocha, To­mas San­tos, Em­press Schuck, Robert Seña, Stephanie Sol, Markki Stroem, Ar­ron Vil­laflor and Gwen Zamora.

Ex­ec­u­tive pro­duc­ers Eduardo Rocha and Fer­nando Or­ti­gas are thrilled to share this lat­est pro­duc­tion up­date: “After months of spec­u­la­tion, we are ex­cited to fi­nally share with ev­ery­one the amaz­ing cast of ‘Goyo.’ We know a lot of peo­ple have been ea­gerly an­tic­i­pat­ing this film and we are just as ea­ger to be­gin a big­ger and more ex­cit­ing film that ev­ery­one would sup­port and cher­ish.”

Di­rec­tor Jer­rold Tarog says, “It’s been three years since we last shot ‘Hen­eral Luna.’ It’s a bit nos­tal­gic to see the re­turn­ing orig­i­nal cast. At the same time, I’m also re­ally look­ing for­ward to work­ing with our bril­liant new cast mem­bers as we start shoot­ing for ‘Goyo’ in a cou­ple of weeks.”

“Goyo: Ang Batang Hen­eral” is be­ing di­rected by Jer­rold Tarog from a screen­play he co-wrote with award-win­ning screen­writer Rody Vera.

The sec­ond in­stall­ment of Tarog’s his­tor­i­cal tril­ogy will fo­cus on the heroic strug­gle of the young Gen­eral Gre­go­rio del Pi­lar and the events that un­fold soon after the bloody death of Gen­eral An­to­nio Luna.

A 20-minute short film en­ti­tled “An­gelito” was re­leased last Fe­bru­ary that served as an in­tro­duc­tion to “Goyo” and a bridge be­tween both “Hen­eral Luna” and its up­com­ing se­quel. “An­gelito” is ex­clu­sively avail­able on­line via movie stream­ing site Cinetropa.com.

“Goyo: Ang Batang Hen­eral,” pro­duced by TBA Stu­dios and Ar­tikulo Uno Pro­duc­tions, is set to start film­ing at the end of the month.

The film is ex­pected to be re­leased in 2018. ( PR)
