Catch Sarah... Ang Munting Prinsesa and Your Other Childhood Favorites for Only P100
Plus Cedie and Magic Temple!
(SPOT.ph) There are days when you just want to go back in time when all you had to think about was what show or movie to watch in your pambahay after school. It was either one of those telenovelas you watched with the entire household or it was one of those Pinoy films that you never got tired of. Chances are, the latter includes classics like Sarah... Ang Munting Prinsesa, Cedie, and Magic Temple.
If you're longing for those good old days, here's the good news: You can catch the restored version of those three films starting May 16 at Cinematheque Centre Manila. Here's some even better news: Tickets are only at P100 each! That means you can actually watch all of them without breaking the bank.
Everybody's seen the memes of the cartoon version of Princess Sarah, but any true '90s kid would also know the adaptation that starred Camille Prats and Angelica Panganiban. Prats stars in Sarah... Ang Munting Prinsesa as the titular princess, who is sent to a boarding school in England where she befriends everyone, incluing the scullery maid played by Panganiban. You might also recognize the ever-scary Miss Minchin played by none other than Jean Garcia.
Cedie (or Cedie: Ang Munting Prinsipe) was also directed by Sarah... Ang Munting Prinsesa's Romy Suzara. This time, it tells the story of a young American boy who learns that he is the only heir of a British earldom. He then moves from New York City to stay in a castle, where he's set to learn about the rules of being royalty. (Looking back, doesn't it kind of sound like The Princess Diaries?) Some of the voice actors of the film include Jaclyn Jose, Mark Gil, Ronaldo Valdez, and Carlo Aquino.
In Magic Temple, three teenage boys take on a wild adventure to save the magical place of Samadhi from the evil powers that threaten it. It was an entry to the 1996 Metro Manila Film Festival, where it won almost all of the awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Original Story, Best Cinematography, and even Best Float. (The film includes among its screenwriters none other than Erik Matti!)
