Published : 4:01 AM Author : Rocky
There is a great rumor that the 'Heiress of Drama' Ms. Andi Eigenmann will portray the role of "Galema" in the upcoming fantasy series of ABS-CBN. After her top-rating phenomenal hit drama-fantasy series "Agua Bendita" which made her rise in fame, this will be her next TV project!
"Galema, Anak ni Zuma" will be the next interesting and exciting TV series that will be revived by the Kapamilya network. It was previous reported that Ms. Anne Curtis will take the role of Galema. But eventually, this another anticipating TV series will no longer for Anne. The management decided to give it to Andi!
"Galema, Anak ni Zuma" is one of the best Pinoy classic movies. The story is based on the myth originally created by Jim Fernandez.
Yup, this story was originally a hit Comics story. "Anak ni Zuma" series of Philippine Komiks became popular from 1976 to 1984. Zuma and Galema is all about the tale of a half-human, half-snake creatures. Zuma is a horrendous character while Galema is his kind-hearted daughter!
In 1985, the graphic series was turned into a blockbuster movie. It was Max Laurel who portrayed the character of Zuma while the young Snooky Serna gave life to Galema! Yup, I still remember that film! I was a little kid when I watched that movie replayed on TV! And it was indeed very nice! If I'm not mistaken, "Zuma" as well as "Galema, Anak ni Zuma" were series of movies!
And now in our present generation, I was very excited to see a remake of it via TV series. Hopefully ABS-CBN will continue pursuing the remake of it! It was reported last year that Ms. Anne will portray Galema but it wasn't prosper. Now it's Ms. Andi Eigenmann to assume the role and the airing of it will be next year. This will be pitted against Marian Rivera's epic-series in the rival network!
But on the recent reports, Andi will be included in the new soap with a working title of 'The General's Family" which will air in January 2011. Definitely, "Galema, Anak ni Zuma" will not be her second big project right after "Agua Bendita"! What do you think?! Or maybe this fantasy series will be Andi's third?! We'll see! We're looking forward for this big TV project! C",)
