Agimat ng Agila has thrill-filled fast-paced action sequences, multi-genre narrative, and special effects quality that can rival critically acclaimed international fantasy series.
Is the GMA Network action fantasy ready to have a Season Two?
In the press conference for the highly anticipated series, director Rico Gutierrez flaunted the intricate special effects they put into the TV project.
“Production cost, wala po ako masyadong alam doon sa production cost pero alam ko po na nagbigay talaga ng suporta ang GMA sa project na ito. Tuwang tuwa po ako na nabigyan ng oras ang aming VFX kasi lalo naming nabusisi yung mga special effects at napag-isipan pa kung ano yung mga pwede naming gawin pa.”
He also added that their budget helped them be creative in filming scenes for the series.
“Sa lahat po ng bagay, kapag mayroon pong budget, minsan mas nagiging kayong mas creative eh. So syempre lahat po ng show nagkakaroon po ng budget, so pag ka minsan kulang na kami, nakakapagisip naman kami ng ibang ways para magawa pa rin yung gusto namin at the same time without costing the production more money.”
He regarded the series as a long-form movie and added that people will support the series, especially those waiting for Senator Ramon Bong Revilla Jr.’s comeback.
“Parang naging long form movie kami eh. Mahabang pelikula. So I think tama lang po yata for now yung once a week. Pero sana, alam ko naman na madaming magsu-support sa project na to ni Senator Bong. Lalong lalo na ito yung kanyang comeback sa GMA 7. So sana magkaroon kami ng book two. Yun ang aming hanga d para sa lahat.”
Senator Revilla said that the series runs 13 episodes, but he is hoping for a second season for the teleserye.
“Yung series po natin ginawa po sya para sa once a week. Kumbaga hindi po talaga sya for every day. We only have 13 episodes, po no. Pero anyway, we are hoping for season 2 kasi sa tingin ko naman eh mangyayari po iyon. Pero malay po natin, we’ll see.”
Hailing as Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr.’s comeback, Agimat ng Agila airs on Labor Day, May 1. Sanya Lopez, Michele Dee, Allen Dizon, Elizabeth Oropesa, Edgar Allan Guzman, Miggs Cuaderno, Ian Ignacio, Roi Vinzon, and Sheryl Cruz joined the powerhouse cast. The action-packed series aims to inspire the audience with stories of perseverance and adventure.
