4 things to look forward to in 'Four Sisters Before the Wedding'

We can almost taste it!

"Four Sisters Before the Wedding" is coming real soon, and we want to share some of the things you should look forward to in the movie!

The prequel will take us back to the teenage years of the Salazar siblings who we first met in "Four Sisters and A Wedding" back in 2013. It was headlined by the brightest Kapamilya female stars: Toni Gonzaga, Bea Alonzo, Angel Locsin, and Shaina Magdayao.

In the upcoming film, Teddie’s younger version will be played by Charlie Dizon, Alexa Ilacad will play Bobbie, Gillian Vicencio will play Alex, and Belle Mariano is Gabbie.

We got a chance to speak exclusively with director Mae Cruz-Alviar, and she gave us some exciting teasers about the upcoming film!

1. The Salazar Parents

Direk Mae told us that the movie will really give us a clear view of how and why the Salazar siblings turned out to be who they are.

She said, "Ito 'yung mahabang flashback ng Salazar family, because it's not just the sisters this time."

"Sino 'yung mga magulang nila? Ano 'yung mga values na naturo ng mga magulang nila sa kanila."

In the original, the story explored the siblings’ "complex" relationship with their mother Grace Salazar (Coney Reyes). In the prequel, we'll also get to see their dynamic with their father.

According to the Direk Mae, "The parents' story is also integral to the Salazar sisters, to the family's story. Maraming bakit na masasagot dito. 'Ah ganun pala, ah kaya pala.'"

2. The young loves!

Direk Mae hyped us up even more when she shared that we will see the first and young loves of the Salazar siblings!

"[There will be] more revelations, sino 'yung mga first love nila, ano 'yung mga pinag-aawayan nila noon, saka 'yung mga away doon sa original, ano 'yung ugat?"

She also said, "Happy ako so far doon sa scenes ng mga bagets na mga 'love.'"

3. The Bobbie vs Alex backstory

One of the most significant parts of "Four Sisters and A Wedding" was the deep-seated jealousy between Bobbie (Bea) and Alex (Angel). For the prequel, Direk Mae said she took the time to really flesh that out and explore it.

She remarked, "Isa 'yun sa mga talagang I was particular about because sabi ko, kinapitan ko 'yun doon sa original."

4. The stellar cast

Direk Mae is just so proud of the performances of her young cast.

"We have a younger cast. I really believe that the cast portrayed and are portraying it excellently. Matutuwa ka talaga sa kanila. Ako I'm in love with my cast. I super love them," she said.
