Which ‘Bagani’ is your spirit animal?

BaganiBaganiUnleash the hero within and embark on an epic adventure in a world where courage, resilience, justice, hope and love prevail in “Bagani.”

Follow the journey of normal individuals turned heroes of Sansinukob—Lakas (Enrique Gil) from the desert region, Ganda (Liza Soberano) from the farm region, Lakam (Matteo Guidicelli) from the trade region, Dumakulem (Makisig Morales) from the forest region and Mayari (Sofia Andres) from the sea region.

Each one of them has a particular skill that makes them a cut above the rest. They also possess good hearts that are willing to sacrifice even themselves for their families and for their people. That is why Apo, the benevolent and wise deity of Sansinukob, bestowed on them powerful weapons—“espada ni Minokawa,” “pana ni Makiling,” “palakol ni Bernardo Karpio,” “arnis ni Liwliwa” and “kalasag ng Kataw”—they need to become Bagani and battle the evil forces of the Sarimaw.

The pilot episode on March 5 registered a national TV rating of 35.5% or more than double than that of its rival “Kambal, Karibal” with 15.4%, according to data from Kantar Media.

“Bagani” also stars Robert Seña, Ana Abad Santos, Rayver Cruz, Lara Quigaman, Enzo Pineda, Christian Vasquez, Mikylla Ramirez and Joj Martin. It is directed by Richard Arellano and Lester Pimentel under the production group of Star Creatives.

“Bagani” airs after “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” on ABS-CBN or ABS-CBN HD (SKYcable Ch. 167).(Story/Photos by: Kane Choa)
