It's been two years since Heneral Luna hit the big screen and became one of the most successful local indie movies of all time. (It raked in more than P200 million during its run!) It was only a matter of time before a sequel would be in the works, and it was then announced that a spino film—this time revolving around Paulo Avelino's Gregorio del Pilar (a.k.a. Goyo) character—was going to be made. And now, after months of teasers and behind-the-scenes videos, Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral finally gets a nationwide premiere date on September 5.
Along with the announcement of its highly anticipated premiere, the people behind Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral also posted a brand-new teaser of the film.
You'll be introduced to Goyo, one of the youngest generals of the Philippine-American War, through dierent characters who also appeared in Heneral Luna, like Apolinario Mabini (Epy Quizon) and Emilio Aguinaldo (Mon Confiado). The film is still directed by Heneral Luna's Jerrold Tarog, and produced by TBA Studios, Artikulo Uno Productions, and Globe Studios. Other cast members also include Carlo Aquino, Arron Villaflor, Alvin Anson, and Empress Schuck. Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral premieres on September 5.
