Let's Volt In! Much Awaited Saga of “Voltes V: Legacy” Makes World Premiere on GMA Network

Get ready to volt in as GMA Network proudly presents the most epic primetime series to  land on Philippine TV via “Voltes V: Legacy.” 

After four years in the making, the first-ever live-action adaptation of the phenomenal  Japanese ‘70s anime ‘Voltes V’ finally makes its highly-anticipated premiere on GMA  Telebabad this May 8. 

The country’s biggest series this 2023 is headlined by no less than five of Sparkle’s  sought-after artists: Kapuso Ultimate Heartthrob Miguel Tanfelix as Steve Armstrong,  Ysabel Ortega as Jamie Robinson, Matt Lozano as Big Bert Armstrong, Radson  Flores as Mark Gordon, and Raphael Landicho as Little Jon Armstrong. 

“Voltes V: Legacy” follows the story of three brothers – Steve, Big Bert, and Little Jon  and their friends Jamie and Mark – as they fight together the evil Boazanian forces who  plan to invade Earth and launch their beast fighters all over the world. 

Miguel highlights why the spin-off will be special not only to the OG fans, but also to the  new generation, “Gusto naming ma-experience ng Gen Z ang naramdaman noon ng mga  magulang nila nung kabataan nila. ‘Yung feeling na uuwi ka galing school tapos mahu hook ka sa kuwento ng magkakaibigan at pamilya. Gusto naming ipa-feel sa kanila ‘yung  tuwa, lungkot, excitement, takot at lahat ng emosyon.” 

Moreover, Ysabel boasts about the world-class standard of their show, “We’re all fans of  Hollywood movies na high quality ang graphics and “Voltes V: Legacy” is like that. Except  the fact that it’s made entirely in the Philippines. It’s something to be proud of and curious  about. At the same time, it’s a story of our age and kung ano ang mga pinagdadaanan  nila in everyday life.” 

Matt, on the other hand, recounts the early days of their taping and how their friendship  eventually evolved, “This is my first lead role kaya grabe ang kaba ko nung una. Pero  sobrang masaya ako kasi nandiyan ‘yung co-actors ko at si Direk Mark Reyes para mag-

guide. Minsan naiisip ko parang magkakapatid na talaga kami, parang totoong pamilya  at ‘yun ang best part ng show.” 

Radson also admits that he was pressured to star in this huge project, “Proud po talaga  ako nung nakuha ko ang role ni Mark Gordon. Bilang newbie actor, mahirap makakuha  ng project and mahirap siyang i-sustain. So may halo ring luck and hardwork na nakuha  ko ang role. Kaya kahit anong mangyari, lagi kong ipagmamalaki na naging part ako ng  project na ito.” 

Meanwhile, Raphael shares how much he can relate to his character as Little Jon, “Marami  po kaming similarities like pagiging bibo, makulit, mahilig sa gadgets at higit po sa lahat,  ‘yung pagiging mapagmahal sa magulang. Kailangan po itong panoorin ng kabataan dahil  tungkol ito sa importance ng family. It will also teach everyone to be brave, strong,  independent, matured, and kind.” 

“Voltes V: Legacy” is touted to be the Network’s most expensive and biggest TV  production to date. That’s why acclaimed director Mark Reyes emphasizes that the  series is an epitome of Pinoy pride, “Close to 1,000 people ang nagtulungan para malikha  itong buong series in a span of 3 to 4 years. It was a long, complex, pandemic-stricken  challenge for everyone involved. Pero I can proudly say that the whole team succeeded  with a 100% Pinoy-made production that will entertain audiences not only locally, but  also globally.” 

The latest primetime masterpiece of GMA Entertainment Group boasts of a casting coup  with the special participation of Kapuso Drama King Dennis Trillo as Ned Armstrong,  the father of the three Armstrong brothers; Max Collins as Rozalia, a humanoid alien  and the first wife of Ned; and Carla Abellana as Mary Ann Armstrong, Ned’s wife from  planet Earth who will help him in creating Voltes V. 

Joining the ensemble cast are Gabby Eigenmann as Commander Robinson, the father  of Jamie and the co-designer of Voltes V; and Albert Martinez as Dr. Smith, a colleague  of Dr. Armstrong who will assist in the development of Voltes V. 

Set to breathe life to the characters of the main antagonists are Martin del Rosario as  Zardoz, the Prince of Boazanian Empire who wishes to conquer Earth; Liezel Lopez as  Zandra, the unrequited lover of Zardoz; Epy Quizon as Zuhl, the scientist who will invent  the Anti-Super Electromagnetic Device to destroy Voltes V; Carlo Gonzales as Draco,  the three-horned general sent to Earth with Zardoz and Zandra. 

Adding thrill to the series are the other Boazanian forces: Chanda Romero as Contessa;  Christian Vasquez as Emperor Zambojil; Ryan Eigenmann as Barron Zander; Dion  Ignacio as Obgen; Carlos Siguion-Reyna as Emperor; Bibeth Orteza as Fadsa; Juan  Rodrigo as Baden; Mike Lloren as General Watson; Jamie Wilson as Garth; Brent  Valdez as Magus; Nico Antonio as Oslak; Khaine Dela Cruz as young Zardoz.

  3. Alright! It's high time to see this great big project that elevates Pinoy CGI to a global level. Good job GMA! Looking forward. 😄

  4. Excited na kami ng buong family manood sa Linggo.

  5. Infairness to GMA7, it's not perfect but ang ganda. Sadly Filipinos would rather bash the show than appreciate it. Ang toxic talaga ng network war sa Pinas.

  6. Japanese are praising the show while Pinoys do the opposite. Grabe ang crab mentality.

  7. Congrats!! Kaka proud!!!

  8. I remember my event yung mga cosplayer ata dito sa japan puro voltes 5 nakita namin si Michael V! 🤣🤣 kinakausqp nya kami about voltes 5 sagot kami ng sagot kasi nakikita din naman namin sa mga posters tuwang-tuwa xa nilibre kami ng hotdog sandwich at iced coffee sa 7/11 syempree tuwang-tuwa kami twice a month lmg ung off namin mga hampy dito nalibre pa kami hehe

    1. Michael V is such a mecha genre fan! He is also an amazing artist and a generous and smart soul.luck you!

  9. nood ako nito! let’s volt in!

  10. Voltes V Legacy is the best pinoy movie/tv series to date!

  11. I told ya, Miguel Tanfelix is THE STEVE ARMSTRONG. No one else is perfect for the role, acting wise and visual wise.

    1. Agree. Dami commenters nag sasabi dati malamya raw ang acting sa trailer, sanay kasi sa lisik mata chewing the scenery overacting.

      Steve is supposed to be an authoritative figure sa team, not some melodramatic dude.

      Nanood sila ng Top Gun to get inspiration from how jet pilots are, he did his assignment.

  12. It's time we appreciate and motivate our Filipino animators. Let us support them and GMA also for continually improving their shows in terms of quality.

  13. Congrats GMA. Maganda reviews ng movie goers. Gaganahan pa sila gumawa ng ganito kalaki at kapulidong project soon and lets manifest na tuloy-tuloy na ang arangkada ng pinoy teleserye/movies na pinaghandaan talaga ang cgi at production. Kudos GMA!

  14. The volt in sequence with the iconic japanese theme song, the heartbreaking scene with their mother and the explosive, hollywood level robot fight scenes make this movie CERTIFIED GOLD.
