Get ready to watch a different side of top Filipino action star Robin Padilla in Hayop Ka! The Nimfa Dimaano Story. From the makers of Saving Sally come romance, comedy and so much drama all wrapped into one in an animated film about cats and dogs. Padilla is set to portray his usual macho self, but in canine form, in mongrel Roger, the janitor boyfriend of Angelica Panganiban’s perfume saleskitty Nimfa.
The film will center in on the dysfunctional relationship between Roger and Nimfa, as well as a looming love triangle that comes in the form of a wealthy businessdog named Iñigo, played by Sam Milby. The first teaser, uploaded October 2017, opens with Nimfa coming home late from a supposed tryst and her boyfriend Roger catching and confronting her. Drama and hilarity ensue, culminating with Nimfa slapping Roger after he accuses her of being promiscuous.
The film’s intense yet amusing plot, quirky animations and hilarious dialogues are definitely something to watch out for.
Hayop Ka! The Nimfa Dimaano Story features the voice talents of Angelica Panganiban (Nimfa), Robin Padilla (Roger), Sam Milby (Iñigo), and Arci Muñoz and Empoy Marquez in supporting roles. It is produced by RocketSheep Studio under the direction of Avid Liongoren, and distributed by Spring Films of Kita Kita, Kimmy Dora and Meet Me in St. Gallen fame.
A release date for the film has yet to be announced.
