A new Filipino adult animation comedy film is coming to Netflix this October.
“Hayop Ka! The Nimfa Dimaano Story” starring Angelica Panganiban, Sam Milby, and Robin Padilla is the first animated Netflix movie from the Philippines.
The story follows Nimfa (Angelica Panganiban), the pretty pussycat who sells perfume at a department store.
Nimfa has a boyfriend, Roger (Robin Padilla), the macho mongrel who is a janitor, but her relationship gets complicated after she meets Iñigo Villanueva (Sam Milby) the bourgeoisie business dog.
The voice cast also includes Empoy Marquez, Piolo Pascual, Arci Muñoz, Eugene Domingo, Yeng Constantino, Moira dela Torre and Bb Joyce Bernal.
“Hayop Ka! The Nimfa Dimaano Story” is directed by Avid Liongoren; written by Manny Angeles and Paulle Olivenza; and was animated and produced by Rocketsheep Studio and Spring Films.
According to Liongren, it took the team "three years of serious hard work to create this light and comical film."
"While our main goal is to elicit a few laughs, our advocacy is to encourage local animation production. In the global animation industry, the Philippines is a go-to nation for outsourcing animation services," he said.
Piolo Pascual, who is one of the film's executive producers, also hopes to provide the audience with refreshing look at societal expectations through the film.
“I find it interesting to see animals dealing with adult human conflict in funny natural situations, the characters are real in their predicament and emotions, and each character has a unique Filipino trait that we can share to the audience,” Piolo said.
"Hayop Ka! The Nimfa Dimaano Story” is set to premiere on Netflix this October 29, 2020. — LA, GMA News
