Mars Ravelo’s Darna: The TV Series” stars Jane De Leon as the newest and modern Darna. This series has met a lot of postponements and delays but this August 15, it will finally take its own flight. Joshua Garcia is Darna’s love interest while the iconic Valentina role was given to Janella Salvador

Zaijian Jaranilla will be the new Ding, a role who also plays a significant role in Darna’s life. Chito S. Roño is directing “Mars Ravelo’s Darna: The TV Series” along with director Avel Sunpongco.

In a previous article, the new Darna faced doubters and clapped back to bashers. The bashing took a toll on her. She was, at first, deeply affected by the negative words of people who doubted her talent. Many were asking why she got the role and she found herself asking the same question.

In an interview in Magandang Buhay, host Regine Velasquez expressed that like the prior Darnas, they were also not as famous just like. She is considered a new face in the industry which is like the previous Darnas during their time.

“So tama lang na, bagong mukha ang maging Darna ngayon,” Regine said.

And former Darna herself Star For All Seasons Vilma Santos has given her approval and blessing to the new Darna. The veteran actress played Darna in four movies from 1973 to 1980: “Lipad, Darna, Lipad,” “Darna and the Giants,” “Darna vs the Planet Women,” and “Darna at Ding.”

Santos told De Leon that the role is not merely just a role because it bears responsibility. She hopes the new Darna to do something to inspire other people and to be a good example. She even added that Darna role is highly coveted and that she should take pride in it because the iconic role was given to her.

This is what she said to De Leon according to a report from ABS-CBN:

Ngayon, Jane, na ikaw ang napiling Darna, bigyan mo sila ng inspirasyon na meron pa ring pagmamahal, meron pa ring tiwala, at meron pa ring pag-asa. Ang daming humawak ng batong ‘yan.

Ngayon, Jane, na sa ‘yo ang bato. Pangalagan mo iyang mabuti. Maging ehemplo ka ng henerasyon ngayon. I wish you all good luck. Nandito lang ako to support you.
