An official entry at the 2018 Metro Manila Film Festival, “Fantastica” is a fantasy-comedy film with its story focusing in the life of Belat (Ganda) who is part of the once-colorful world of the carnival named Perya Wurtzbach: The Happiest Place on the Earth, the Universe Rather.
Belat with her mother Fec (Jaclyn Jose) and adopted siblings Daks (Ronnie Alonte), Pepe (Edward Barber) and Junjun (Donny Pangilinan) are struggling to save their carnival, and adding to their troubles is the possibility of getting evicted from their land that will be taken from them by the family of her former best friend Dong Nam (Dingdong Dantes).
Giving them a glitter of hope is the arrival of the man from her past, Prince (Richard Gutierrez), who promised to help them restore their carnival if she will help him save their land, Fantastica, by finding their lost princesses: Rapunselya (Loisa Andalio), Maulan (Maymay Entrata) and Ariella (Kisses Delavin).
Also part of the film are Bela Padilla, Ryan Bang, Johnny Revilla, MC Calaquian, Lassy Marquez, Chokoleit, Julianna Parizcova Segovia and Elsa Droga, directed by Barry Gonzalez and produced by ABS-CBN Films Star Cinema and Viva Films.
