Alexandra Trese is almost here!
To get fans even more pumped for the arrival of Trese, Netflix released an official teaser featuring the opening scene of the upcoming series on early Thursday morning. The streaming site released two versions of the trailer showcasing both languages dubs in Filipino and English.
The trailer gives us a glimpse of the role Alexandra Trese plays in the series: a detective who deals with crimes of supernatural origin.
“Hindi mga magnanakaw at kidnaper ang dapat katakutan, kundi ang mga nilalang na uhaw sa dugo at kaluluwa. Hindi sila napipigilan ng mga posas,” Alexandra Trese, voiced by Liza Soberano for the Filipino dub, narrates. “Sabi noon ng ama ko, hayaan mo lang ang mga anino. Darating ang liwanag upang balansehin ang lahat.”
“Ngunit nilamon na ng dilim ang siyudad. Ang kasunduang pumoprotekta sa mga tao laban sa nilalang ng kababalaghan ay nagsimulang humina,” she continues. “Pilit na lumalaban ang mabubuting tao, ngunit lumalakas ng powersa ng kadiliman.”
“Habang hinihintay na muling manaig ang liwanag, ako muna ang bantay.”
It might be just a handful of minutes, but everything about the trailer’s animated dystopian Metro Manila was on point: the dreary slums, the Jollibee logo flashing on the marquee, and even the hard Filipino accent was accurate. Heck, even the MRT breaking down between stations was relatable according to Filipino fans on the comments section!
This latest sneak peek into the upcoming animated series follows Netflix’s recent marketing stint where Trese billboards were spotted vandalized and ripped apart by supposed “creatures of the night.” Be that as it may, we still haven’t figured out how they did it as of writing.
Aswangs beware: Trese premieres on Netflix on June 11 at exactly 12 midnight.
