Jane De Leon, The New Darna, Wows Netizens in an Impressive Transformation Debut

12:49:00 PM

 

Are you one of the viewers and fans waiting for that moment? 

The eagerly-anticipated transformation of Jane De Leon as the new Darna has finally happened last Friday (August 19), capping off the pilot week of the ABS-CBN series that also saw the death of Leonor (Iza Calzado), the first Darna.

The #LipadDarna episode revealed how the white mythical stone found its way back to Narda—now an emergency medical technician—during a rescue mission caused by an earthquake in Nueva Esperanza.


 

Despite having qualms about fully embracing her destiny as a superhero, Narda bravely swallowed the stone, triggering her Darna alter ego and saving those who were trapped in the quake’s rubble.

The momentous scene shot up the hashtag #LipadDarna atop the local Twitter trend list and at the second spot in the worldwide list, with netizens primarily praising Jane’s performance, the costume, and visual effects.


 

After the episode, JRB Creative Production also released the official poster of the series, which shows Jane in a fierce battle stance while fully clad in her red and gold Darna ensemble that also earned positive feedback online for its high quality.

During Monday’s episode, viewers were introduced to the mysterious characters of Javier Toledo or Lindol Man (Dominic Ochoa) and Master Klaudio (Joko Diaz), who helped Ding from men trying to attack him. Will they be friends or foes to him and Narda?

Meanwhile, Regina (Janella Salvador) and Brian’s (Joshua Garcia) alliance in trying to expose the corruption of Mayor Zaldy Vallesteros (Simon Ibarra) continues after they found out that Toledo was the chief engineer of the collapsed building during the quake.


 

Tune in to “Mars Ravelo’s Darna,” airing weekdays, 8 pm on Kapamilya Channel, A2Z, CineMo, and TV5. It is also available to watch via Kapamilya Online Live, iWantTFC, and The Filipino Channel.

When Music Means Something Else: Checking some Lines in the Song Narda

10:12:00 AM

 

If you love listening to bands, specifically rock bands, then you've probably heard the group named Kamikazee. Originally, the term kamikaze was a Japanese term for Japanese Special Attack Units of military aviators who flew suicide attacks for the Empire of Japan against Allied naval vessels, which happened during the 2nd World War. And that's a fact that happened.

But, if you're pronouncing Kamikazee with a double letter "e" at the end it's a play of words that describes "kami kasi" or is translated as "it's because of us."

Kamikazee band emerges during 2000, a Filipino rock band originally known all throughout its career as a quintet composed of Jay Contreras, Jomal Linao, Led Tuyay, Puto Astete, Bords Burdeos, Jian Lubiano, and Mikki Jill. Some of their albums are Kamikazee, Maharot, Long Time Noisy, and Romantico.


 
Anyway, we just introduced the band but the interesting part is one of their songs that made a hit in the airwaves, entitled "Narda." Especially now that the Darna series started.

Narda is the human character of the Superheroine, Darna, but for Kamikazee it is one of their songs under the Album "Maharot." A song themed about unrequited aspiration and love for the character Darna.

Though the song may have its wholesome image, there is a specific part of the song that is considered a double meaning. Taken from its album title "Marahot," which means playful or flirtatious, it probably has that notion to play with the idea.

The specific part gives reader a wild imagination on its meaning.

"Sa likod ng mga tala
Kahit sulyap lang, Darna"

If you're in your teens this has probably given away its meaning. Translated literally to fit what it deems to be the meaning, "Behind or beyond the stars, even just a glimpse, Darna." Does Darna fly beyond or behind the stars? Probably not, and what about the glimpse, can you really see Darna if she passes behind the stars? I think not again. So, what does the line means? If you're really an avid fan of Darna, what does she wear? She commonly wears a two-piece costume and if you're observant enough what design can you see on the upper piece of the costume? A "star," so if you do the math you'll land on what's behind the stars. It may sound perverted, obscene, or something else but that's what it intends if you have a playful mind. 

Not really sure if that particular line is intentionally created to give a double meaning or if it was just a random line. But if you're really drop-dead admiring Darna that would a thing to consider.

Again, the song is created under the album title "Maharot," so, it would be bad to think of flirtatious or kinky ideas with the song.

 

Well, will just have to find it out from the writer himself, if they thought of that in mind while writing the song. For now, let's make our minds go wild for a while.

The Darna series has started and Narda has shouted "Darna" and shows her first transformation. I think the song Narda of Kamikazee would not be applicable in this version of Darna because Ding is introduced as her sibling. 

If you have not heard of the song, I'm not sure where you are if you didn't, you'll definitely enjoy it. You can check it on youtube, spotify or other platforms.

“MARS RAVELO’S DARNA” Rise in Primetime as Premiere Records High Viewership Garners Praises

12:05:00 AM

 

ABS-CBN’s modern-day account of the most iconic Pinay superhero has finally seen the light of day as “Mars Ravelo’s Darna” debuted to rave reviews, encouraging support, and high viewership that promises an exciting run for the highly anticipated series top billed by Jane De Leon.

The first episode—which soared to a peak of 296,334 live concurrent viewers via Kapamilya Online Live on YouTube—introduced viewers to Jane’s Narda Custodio, her mom Leonor (Iza Calzado), brother Ding (Zaijian Jaranilla), and grandmother Berta (Rio Locsin).

It also provided an explanation as to how Leonor, the first Darna, came to Earth from her planet of origin Marte, and gave viewers a clear image of her capabilities as she fought off an alien being that has invaded their town as Darna.



Narda also learned of Leonor’s superhero identity and her inevitable fate as the next protector of the white mythical stone. Meanwhile, a scene also showed an enigmatic female character who was infected with a toxic element from the alien creature—alluding to how Janella Salvador’s Regina would become the serpent villain Valentina.

Aside from Jane, Zaijian, Janella, Rio, and Iza, Joshua Garcia also appeared in the first episode as Brian Robles, Narda’s high school friend that she tries to help from bullies.


 
A project years in the making, netizens showed their excitement and admiration for “Mars Ravelo’s Darna” as the hashtag #Darna landed on top of the Twitter trend list worldwide and in the Philippines. Many lauded its commendable visual effects, impressive fight scenes, and inspiring message.

Twitter user @sentillasdarwin said, “I love the stunts, the production value, and the ensemble cast, not to mention the narrative we really need right now calling us to be our own 'hero' to and for others. I'm all for it! #Darna.”

“#Darna is a mix of CGI and practical effects. I’m not expecting Hollywood-level effects but comparing this to its contemporaries, this is a level up sa Pinoy TV,” @CholoI_ tweeted.

For its premiere episode, “Mars Ravelo’s Darna” held a live viewing party at the Robinson’s Galleria last Monday (August 15), where fans enjoyed watching the series with cast members who graced the event.

 

“Mars Ravelo’s Darna” is directed by the Master Director Chito S. Roño, Avel Sunpongco, and Benedict Mique and produced by ABS-CBN’s JRB Creative Production unit.

Witness Narda’s flight to greatness in “Mars Ravelo’s Darna,” airing weekdays, 8 pm on Kapamilya Channel, A2Z, CineMo, and TV5. It is also available to watch via Kapamilya Online Live, iWantTFC, and The Filipino Channel.

Today’s generation of viewers will finally witness Darna come alive to manifest her superpowers, bare her humanity and love for family, and empower audiences with her bravery in ABS-CBN Entertainment’s “Mars Ravelo’s Darna” series that is set to premiere on Monday (August 15), 8 pm on Kapamilya Channel, A2Z, Jeepney TV, and TV5.

“Ito na po ang pagkakataon namin para ipakita sa buong mundo ang pinaghirapan ng production, lahat ng cast, mapa-staff and directors. Matagal na rin po itong hinintay ng sambayanang Pilipino,” said lead star Jane de Leon who plays Narda Custodio and her superhuman alter-ego Darna.




“Maraming-marami po kayong aabangan pagdating sa effects, costumes, villains, at syempre sa bagong istorya ng ‘Darna,’” she promised at the Darna Grand Media Conference held last Monday (August 8).

The Star for All Seasons Vilma Santos gave a surprise video message at the event. “Yung pagiging Darna, relevant yan, lalo na ngayon na napupuno tayo ng challenges sa buhay. Ang karakter niya ay nagbibigay ng inspirasyon sa mga tao,” the multi-awarded actress, who starred in four Darna movies, said. “Jane, na sa’yo na ang bato! Pangalaan mo yang mabuti. Maging ehemplo ka ng henerasyon ngayon.”





The series will chronicle the life of Narda, an emergency medical technician (EMT) and a loving breadwinner to the Custodio family, who is destined to become the next protector of the powerful stone that enables her to transform into a superhero who has special abilities to help those in danger.

Joining Jane in this year’s most awaited program are Iza Calzado who plays Narda’s mother Leonor, the first Darna; Janella Salvador as vlogger and lawyer Regina and Darna’s mortal enemy Valentina; Joshua Garcia as a police officer named Brian; Zaijian Jaranilla as Narda’s geeky younger brother Ding.





Also part of the series are Paolo Gumabao, Rio Locsin, Richard Quan, Simon Ibarra, Jeffrey Santos, Eric Fructuoso, Levy Ignacio, and many more.

Darna’s modern-day TV adaptation, based on the creation of Pinoy comics legend Mars Ravelo, is directed by the Master Director Chito S. Roño, Avel Sunpongco, and Benedict Mique and produced by ABS-CBN’s JRB Creative Production unit.

Direk Chito shared good words about this generation’s Darna. “I’m very pleased not only that [Jane] she focused, not only that she concentrated, she has done very well as an actress for ‘Darna,’” complimenting Jane for how she has portrayed the role of the iconic superhero.



   

Viewers are eagerly awaiting the show’s premiere following several sightings of Darna’s character in various places culminating in the “DarnaCon” event last Saturday at Robinsons malls where the show’s cast got to meet and greet their fans. Its trailer, launched just last month, already earned almost 10 million views across ABS-CBN Entertainment’s social media platforms.

P-pop boy group BGYO was also announced to sing the official soundtrack of “Darna” titled “Patuloy Lang Ang Lipad” to be launched very soon.

The new series will air from Monday to Friday beginning August 15 at 8 pm on Kapamilya Channel, A2Z, Jeepney TV, and TV5 and will also be available on Kapamilya Online Live, iWantTFC, and The Filipino Channel.

The Costume that Made Darna Iconic

12:13:00 AM

 

The newest Darna flies this August 15. But before it takes massive attention from its fans, let us try to check some details of the characters and figure out what is interestingly new in this latest Darna series.

Darna is an iconic heroine character among Filipinos. I think there's no Filipino who doesn't know Darna, probably except those who live in the mountain or chose to live a monk-like life or a sage or the ones who do not have any access to any media materials. Pinoy kids love this character, a good representation of woman empowerment.

From the conception of the character since its first appearance on screen in the 1950s, Darna has undergone many changes. This has made the icon, the idol of every kid in every generation.

Let us check what costume made the Darna character iconic.

Rosa Del Rosario - 1950 - "Darna"
 

Rosa del Rosario the first Darna wore a costume similar to the comic character, a head gear covering the head like a helmet with the Darna emblem. It then became its trademark but was changed during the portrayal of Nanette Medved and Anjanette Abayari, wearing only the symbol on the head.

Anjanette Abayari - 1994 - "Darna !Ang Pagbabalik"

Nanette Medved - 1991 - "Darna"


The two-piece costume with the iconic star on it. Almost all the actresses who played Darna wore this costume and interestingly there are only three (3) actresses who wore the one piece version, Sharon Cuneta, Regine Velasquez, and the now Iza Calzado. 

Sharon Cuneta -  1986 - appeared in "Captain Barbell"

Regine Velasquez - 2009 - TV Series "Book 2 of Darna"


Let's talk about the emblem. From all the Darna versions and based on the creation of Mars Ravelo, there are two (2) significant objects present, the stone, and the wings. Rio Locsin, Lorna Tolentino, and Anjanette Abayari's costumes are somewhat different.

Lorna Tolentino - 1977 - "Darna"

Rio Locsin - 1977 - "Darna"

   
Now, the Jane de Leon Darna version shows a different emblem. The gem or stone is the same but the wings are not the usual feathery type. Probably a more digitalized and modernized look to match the current generation.

 Probably the weirdest of all the actors who played the Darna role was Dolphy. Yes, he did get his chance of becoming Darna in Darna kuno!

Dolphy - 1979 - "Darna Kunoh?"

I think no matter what is the version in every generation, the character only speaks of one thing... woman empowerment.  Women are fragile but they are not weak. That's why Darna became an icon not only because of her costume but because of the strength and strong will behind that image. 

Jane De Leon - present - Darna


So, what do you think of the new version of Darna? 

Darna flies on August 15!

"Darna" Series Releases First BTS and Features A Modern-day Valentina with Janella Salvador

3:42:00 AM

 

"Darna: The TV Series" has started its camera rolling, and ABS CBN released one BTS photo of Jane De Leon as Narda. So, the countdown starts as they air on Philippine TV soon. 

“Darna: The TV Series” which recently named the actress taking on the role of Valentina and director Chito S. Roño believes that Janella Salvador will be able to give justice to the character that will be enveloped in deep mystery.

The box-office director also said that viewers can anticipate a modern-day supervillain in the show that is set to premiere in 2022. He teased, “We’re modernizing Valentina time. Totally kakaiba sa dating Valentina!”

“I haven’t really seen her [Janella] that much except for when she auditioned and I was kinda impressed. Hindi ako na-disappoint sa audition niya,” Direk Chito shared. “I think she would do justice to the character of Valentina. Janella would not only be capable but also interesting to do that different kind of character.”

Meanwhile, a newly dropped behind-the-scenes video by JRB Creative Production gave a sneak peek at the character of Narda, the human alter ego of Darna portrayed by Jane De Leon.

The series’ lead star, Jane, also celebrated her 23rd birthday (Nov. 22) on the set and shared her excitement in working with her new “Darna” family.

“Importante sa amin na dapat family kaming lahat and not just thinking about work but also thinking of friendships and also relationships namin sa isa’t-isa. The set is light and we’re just enjoying the moment,” shared the Kapamilya actress in an interview with Metro.Style.

STATEMENT On ANGEL LOCSIN Released by ABS CBN

9:47:00 AM

 

Just recently, Angel Locsin celebrated her birthday, and as kindhearted as she is, she wanted to share the blessing to people that she can reach. Life is uncertain and thankfully there are individuals like Angel who is not only a Darna on-screen but more than a heroine in real life. Because of her personality, people admire her for who is. 

Here's a statement released by ABS-CBN on Angel Locsin

ABS-CBN believes in the goodness of the heart of our Kapamilya Angel Locsin, who in her personal capacity has tirelessly helped our countrymen in times of crisis.

We admire her commitment to continue serving the Filipino people with selfless dedication and love.

We stand by her and thank her for being a shining example of generosity, accountability, and compassion.

Angel Locsin and Jane De Leon: Clash of the Old and New Darna

12:47:00 PM

Darna has been one of the iconic heroine comic characters that transcend from a number of generations already. It has moved from one actress to another, highlighting the very personality of the artist playing the role. Looked upon by not just the kids but even the grown-ups who are grasping for hope, inspiration, and strength. Topping it all, Darna is the heroine that is a symbol of woman strength, hope, and compassion.

In our current situation, the pandemic COVID-19 crisis, and the issue about press freedom, we truly need an icon to be our inspiration to move forward. An inspiration that will lead us all as we live with the new norm of our life.

Currently, two of the stars who have been allowed to play the iconic character, Darna, are in a silent online dispute. Are they?


If you can recall that last week after the announcement of the denial of the franchise of the ABS CBN Network, Angel Locsin, coined as the real-life Darna, made a call to her fellow actors to rise and speak up about the shutdown of the network.

“Yong mga Kasamahan kong artista na hindi pa rin nagsasalita. Ano tatahimik na lang kayo? Wala na kayong network? Ano magpapacute na lang kayo sa Instagram?”

With this act, celebrities and personalities expressed their gesture of support. Some went to the rally to join the noise barrage, and others made their way of support on social media. And one of the celebrities who take their support online is Jane De Leon, who is the current bid to play the role of Darna. The gesture is there, but and unfortunately, some lines are a bit off for the netizens.


“My support to the current crisis that the network is facing right now is not just measured by going out in the streets in this time of pandemic. Alam kong para sa nakakarami sa atin, masakit ang closure ng ABS-CBN. Nakiki-isa at nakikisimpatya rin po ako sa mga kapawa ko Kapamilya na nawalan ng kabuhayan.

…. Dadagdag pa ba tayo sa lumolobong bilang at patuloy na pagtaas ng COVID cases sa ating Bansa?....”

In my opinion, the reason that Jane made is a bit out of line. Knowing that the old Darna, Angel Locsin, has been doing her charity works at the start of the COVID-19 spread, even though she knows the risk is high. Jane should have made her statement simpler.

There's a rumor circulating that Angel made a rebut against the statement, and it's unpleasing. Will this be the start of the cold war between the two Darnas? For whatever will be the outcome of the silent or cold war between the two Darna, let us understand that playing the role of Darna is a privilege, and it comes with great responsibility - to give hope, inspiration, and strength.

Jane De Leon Replaces Liza Soberano For the Darna Role

12:13:00 AM

It was over a year ago when we posted about the next actress that will play the Darna role, that was Liza Soberano.  Due to certain circumstances that transpired during the span of time that Liza was doing the preparation and the shooting of the Darna movie, Liza announced her withdrawal from the movie. This was after the severe finger injury that she had.

With that a new race to pick and select the right actress for the role. There are some of have auditioned for it. Some made it comedic like Alex Gonzaga and some where pretty well prepared for the audition like Julia Barretto. There were also recommendations from the netizens like Nadine Lustre, Kathryn Bernardo, and more.

In the end there could be only one and just today it was announced who will be the replacement of Liza as Darna.


As I was browsing from the line up of suggested actresses to fit the role, this pretty lady is out of the list. Not even a clue that she will be picked to be the next to play the Darna role. So, who it was? Well it's Jane De Leon. Who she is? Well, if you've followed the TV Series Halik you'll eventually recognize her as the hot tempered sister of Lino (Jericho Rosales character) when it comes to Jade. Also, Jane has been part of the Girltrends which regularly performs in It's Showtime.

So, what do you think, will she be one of the best fit for the Darna role? Well, let us see and watch!

Liza Soberano Is Confirmed as The Newest Darna

3:01:00 AM

Yes, you read it right. Liza Soberano is the newest actress who will play the role of the iconic superheroine created by Mars Ravelo's Darna. Well I got surprised at first, though she was one of the few shortlisted actresses who would be the next to play the role of Darna.

In the news that was out for the public it is said that Liza Soberano will do more than 100 percent of what is expected of her. She should be because the stars who have played the role made an impression to the viewers and fans of Darna. The last actress who played the role was Angel Locsin who was able to par with the standards of the previous actress who portrayed the role like Sharon Cuneta and Vilma Santos. So, will that 100 percent more can level that standard? Let us see.

In my own observation, Liza look and personality fits the character of Narda I just don't know if she can radiate the heroic aura of Darna. Yes, Liza is a versatile actress but there are some things that are left as it is and for this particular iconic superheroine character it seems that she'll be having a hard time to beam up that look.

So we'll just see and expect the best from her and let us hope that aside from the marketing and glam of the costume we will still see the character of Darna or Narda through her.

Oh one more thing, with the filming style of Erik Matti I really don't know how the movie will end up. I'm not sure if Liza already worked with Direk Erik Matti. So there's a big void in the air that needs to be occupied until the full trailer of Darna.

So, what do you think of her being the next Darna? You can comment your reaction and let's see what will be the outcome of this.
