Directed by Dolly Dulu, The Boy Foretold by The Stars tells the story of two senior high school boys, who, through the help of a fortune teller, find each other at an optional school retreat called Journey with the Lord.
A sequel for the movie—a limited series co-produced by Clever Minds and ABS-CBN's Dreamscape—was announced in early February. However, no further details about the project were given.
Billed as the first Filipino boys' love (BL) movie, The Boy Foretold by the Stars won three awards at the 2020 Metro Manila Film Festival awards night, namely, 2nd Best Picture, Gender Sensitivity Award, and Best Original Theme Song.
