has shared the following with us: "Ipinanganak na prinsesa, gagawing alipin, hihiranging babaylan at itinadhanang makipaglaban para sa kalayaan! Tunghayan kung paano niya babaguhin ang kanyang mundo. Amaya! Gabi-Gabi sa GMA Telebabad."
Daniel Francis Aldeza has written an article "Marian is back in primetime via ‘Amaya’" and here is a short excerpt from it: "In the series, Marian plays as a noble princess who is abducted and becomes a slave before finally becoming the greatest female warrior of her time." Read the full article on the NOTES section of Marian's Facebook page.
Marinel R. Cruz reports for PDI that "The story is set in the pre-colonial period of the 1500s. It is about a princess (portrayed by Marian Rivera), who is forced to into slavery. She later discovers her extraordinary powers, which she uses to lead her people at a time when males dominated society."
Director Mac Alejandre has also told of some of the shooting locations in the above article. I thought more shooting was being done in the Visayan region but that was wrong thinking on my part. Daniel wrote that the "story is set in Central Visayas during 1500s, during the reign of Rajah Mangubat, a good and undefeated warrior, who is armed with a good fighting skills and magical amulet."
Please tune in to watch this historical series on GMA.
