The movie is the prequel to the 2013 hit movie Four Sisters and a Wedding, which starred Bea Alonzo (Bobbie), Angel Locsin (Alex), Toni Gonzaga (Teddie), and Shaina Magdayao (Gabbie).
The prequel is set 10 years before the commencement of the story of the original movie.
Alexa Ilacad (Bobbie), Gillian Vicencio (Alex), Charlie Dizon (Teddie), and Belle Mariano (Gabbie) are set to headline the prequel.
“Nakakatuwa kasi ‘yung essence ng characters, kuhang-kuha nila. 'Pag napapanood ko ‘yung rushes, natutuwa ako sa kanila,” Lamasan said in a report by ABS-CBN News.
The ABS-CBN Films executive relayed that Alexa was really a revelation in the film.
“Ako, it’s a surprise to me when I saw Alexa. Tuwang-tuwa ako kasi she’s portraying the role of Bea Alonzo. Hindi ko inakala na kaya niya," she said.
Olivia expressed her excitement for the Filipinos to see the movie.
"Excited akong makita niyo ‘yung pelikula, kasi ‘yung essence ng characters nakuha nila," she stated.
She also commended the movie's director Mae Cruz for her great work.
