The squad of Andrea Brillantes, Francine Diaz, Kyle Echarri, at Seth Fedelin just got bigger with the launch of Squad+, Star Magic’s newest teen barkada.
Joining the four teen stars in Squad+ are 13 young and talented artists who were formally introduced to the public in a special contract signing event held Tuesday (March 2) and hosted by Edward Barber.
Among those who will be groomed to be the idols of the next generation are those considered as “royalty” as children or kin of respected names in showbiz. They include Jimuel, son of Sen. Manny Pacquiao; Sam, daughter of Sunshine Cruz; and Nio Tria, son of Cherry Pie Picache.
Following in the footsteps of young superstar Daniel Padilla are his relatives Analain and Ashton Salvador, who are also related to the Salvador showbiz clan.

“Star Magic Plus” also introduced new teen heartthrobs Renshi Rueso and Raven Rigor who will be part of the highly anticipated teleserye, “Huwag Kang Mangamba.”
Also joining the Star Magic family is young actress Danica Ontengco, whose acting credits include “La Vida Lena,” while viewers have to pay attention to the acting chops of teen star Angelica Lao who revealed that she always dreamed to be a star since she was a kid.
Teen singer Angela Ken, who was discovered through her viral TikTok video, signed back-to-back contracts with Star Magic and Star Music.
