ABS-CBN Releases Statement on ‘Bagani’

The concept of ABS-CBN’s new fantaserye “Bagani” is to feature warriors, protectors, and heroes who espouse Filipino values and beliefs.

The production team did intensive research to determine a distinctly Filipino term that embodies a champion who fights for the common good of his tribe or family—somebody who is brave, honorable, self-sacrificing, and good-hearted. In the end, the team recognized that the term and concept of a “Bagani” best solidifies the traits that the program wants to highlight.

With all due respect, the use of “Bagani” is not in any way intended to malign or to disrespect beliefs of the Indigenous Peoples’ communities, but instead hopes to propagate the values, morals, and ethics that are inherent in a ‘Bagani’—a Filipino warrior, protector, and hero.

To be clear, the “Bagani” fantaserye does not purport itself to be a historical account of Philippine history or culture. The program has always maintained that it has created an alternative fictional universe with elements of Filipino mythology and folklore that simply serves as an avenue to creatively deliver and highlight Filipino values, beliefs, and heroism.

    Inggit kabila network kasi di maka take-off sa ratings ang mga basuraseryes nila twing gabi. Wawa nman cla

  5. Kathryn is a terrible fantaserye actress. La Luna was a stretch for her abilities. She should also have no part in Bagani. Whoever said that is obviously a Kathniel fan and not a fan of the art of acting. She should definitely stick to RomCom or drama. She does really well with those. Good luck LizQuen. I hope you represent Philippine fantaserye better than Kathniel did in La Luna.

  6. Dapat eto ang sa Kathniel tapos La Luna Sangre sa LuzQuen
