Set 10 years before the events of the original film, the prequel will feature a new cast who are playing younger versions of the sisters.
Gillian Vicencio is cast as Alex, the role originally played by Angel Locsin, while Charlie Dizon is playing Toni Gonzaga’s character Teddie. Belle Mariano is playing Shaina Magdayao’s character Gabbie, and Alexa Ilacad is cast as Bea Alonzo’s character Bobbie.
Four Sisters and a Wedding premiered in 2013 and tells the story of 4 sisters who reunite for the wedding of their youngest brother, Rebreb (Enchong Dee).
The film has since birthed countless memes, and given viewers several unforgettable scenes, including the tearful confrontation between the entire Salazar family, a wedding scene that would have put the Met Gala Camp red carpet to shame, and that cathartic scene where a character played by Mocha Uson gets dragged by the sisters onto the streets.
A release date for the prequel film has yet to be announced. The original is available for viewing on Netflix. – Rappler.com
