- Some Netizens claim that Bagani is an Encantadia rip off
4 of ABS-CBN brightest stars unites to star in the station’s upcoming fantaserye titled, “Bagani”.
In an article by Pep.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), LizQuen, together with co-stars Sofia Andres and Makisig Morales wore their costumes during the ABS-CBN trade launch event held last November 28, 2017.
This will also mark Makisig Morales’ return after his 2006 fantaserye, Super Inggo.
This marks LizQuen’s 3rd teleserye in ABS-CBN after the successful 2015 teleserye Dolce Amore and Forevermore.
Also, in a previous interview with PEP.ph, Enrique shared that Bagani tells the story of how the Philippines was created. Those who were able to watch the trailer during the trade launch, the characters of Bagani will represent classic elements: earth, water, wind, fire, and wood:
Enrique Gil – Earth
Liza Soberano – Air
Matteo Guidicelli – Fire
Sofia Andres – Water
Makisig Morales – Wood
However, after the photos were uploaded by ABS-CBN’S Star Creative, different reaction have circulated and even compared it to GMA Networks leading fantaserye, Encantadia. Take a look at their comments here:

JUST IN: Encantadia Season 2 has a new home on ABS-CBN. Bagani is the newest Encantadia inspired fantaserye on the Primetime Bida block after LLS.

Sorry to say, but I guess this #Bagani is another rip off of GMA's #Encantadia after #LaLunaSangre and the title itself is the name of one of the main characters of #Amaya played by Sid Lucero. San na mga creative team nyo @abscbndotcom originality naman please.😉 pic.twitter.com/VMIoBVsGdd

Meanwhile, LizQuen fans showed their utmost support and defended the upcoming show. Check out their tweets here:
Ang Bagani based sa Kulturang Pilipino at hindi sa kulto mo ng encantadia. Be professional wag po kayo assuming. Nakakahiya sa mga kasama nyo sa profession nyo. Mas magaling at matalino si Mark Angos kesa sa iyo Suzi Doctolero. At marunong sya ng word na respeto. https://t.co/kYCVoshmNm
