‘Kimmy Dora’ faces new challenges

IN 2010, Joyce Bernal and Chris Martinez’s “Kimmy Dora” reconfigured the star system when it became a big hit. It also turned Eugene Domingo, who played the twins, Kimmy and Dora, into a star.

Director Bernal thought one movie was enough, but people kept asking for a sequel. She shares, “Sa sequel, hindi puwedeng pareho lang or less than the original. It should offer something new.”

Promise

In “Kimmy Dora & the Temple of Kyeme,” the twins join their father (Ariel Ureta) on a trip to Korea, his homeland, where one of them has to marry a member of a Sang clan to fulfil a promise made by Ureta. The sisters refuse since they’re in love with their respective beaus—portrayed by Dingdong Dantes and Zanjoe Marudo!

The biggest challenge in filming the “Kimmy Dora” sequel was surviving the bitter cold in the mountains of Korea. Eugene relates, “We shot there at the peak of winter. It wasn’t easy because I had to do the scenes twice since I play twins in it. Gusto kong maiyak sa hirap at pagod!”

The horror element has been incorporated into the story, and a lot of celebrities will be playing cameo roles.

• Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark.
• Stay fit. When you’re 600 years old, someone might ask you to do something REALLY big.
• Don’t listen to critics, do what has to be done.
• Build on high ground.
• For safety’s sake, travel in pairs.
• Two heads are
than one.
• Speed isn’t always an advantage. The cheetahs were on board, but so were the snails.
• If you can’t fight or flee, float!
• Take care of your animals as if they were the last ones on earth.
• Don’t forget that we’re all in the same boat.
• When the doo-doo gets really deep, don’t sit there and complain shovel!!!
• Stay below deck during the storm.
• Remember that the ark was built by amateurs and the Titanic was built by professionals.
• If you have to start over, have a friend by your side.
• Remember that the woodpeckers INSIDE are often a bigger threat than the storm outside.
• Don’t miss the boat. No matter how bleak it looks, there’s always a rainbow on the other side.

Being called weird is like being called Limited Edition. Meaning you’re something people don’t see that often. Remember that.
