The official trailer for ABS-CBN Entertainment’s “Mars Ravelo’s Darna” raked in over four million views across social media platforms when it officially dropped on July 7, earning praises from netizens who said the series is truly “worth the wait.”
The clip earned over one million views on Facebook four hours after launch and continued to generate clicks with over three million views in less than 24 hours after the premiere. It also has more than 900,000 views on Twitter and another 1.6 million views on YouTube as of July 12.
The trailer gave a peek into Jane de Leon’s early life as Narda, her training under her mother and “First Darna” Leonor played by Iza Calzado, and her journey to becoming the iconic Pinay superhero.
The hashtag #DarnaTrailer immediately topped Twitter Philippines’ trending list and continued to trend the following day. Other keywords related to the show also trended, such as Joshua Garcia, Janella, Valentina and Iza Calzado.
