Film / Mulawin: The Movie

Go To
Nope, there aren't any Ravenas on this photograph.

Following the events take directly took place after this movie's prequel, the Sugo Heroes Agiluz and Alwina decided to stay on the Mortal World after their marriage, and proceed to pack their things on their ship on their journey. However, a thunderstorm took place, and separated Agiluz and Alwina into separate places: Agiluz into the hands of a humble farming couple, and Alwina into Gabriel's very hands. At the same time, the realm of Encantadia has been breached by the traitorous Pirena, serving as Ravenum's henchman, and everyone fights... again... for the safety of the Gintong Binhi and Agiluz' and Alwina's Ugat-Paks.

Mulawin: The Movie is a Philippine live-action film sequel to the first titular series entry, created by Don Michael Perez, co-directed by Dominic Zapata and Mark Reyes, and licensed under GMA Network. A previous main series entry to the Mulawin saga, which in turn branches into Iglot and the Encantadia spin-offs, it visions the events that took place between Mulawin and Mulawin vs. Ravena.


Mulawin: The Movie contains trope examples of:

  • Fantastic Racism: It's not even fantastic. It's a whole lot bloodier with Ravenum around.
  • Genre Savvy: Almiro and Alwina definitely know how to put the Ugat-paks on their backs the right way, even with amnesia.
  • Humanity Ensues: The curse Dakila gave to Pagaspas and Lawiswis still linger by this movie, and they even took advantage of this in the trio... trials the Tres Aves gave them in exchange for their help.
  • Flight of Romance: It was how the main hero couple chose their honeymoon to be.
  • Idiot Ball:
    • The scene between the human Agiluz and Pagaspas in his owl form. The former's adoptive guardians even eavesdrop on them and begin to wonder if Agiluz is possessed or even just plain crazy.
    • There was also that part where the Tres Aves challenged Agiluz' party to three trials (yes, THREE) and where Lawiswis gloats to Langay that she and Pagaspas can fly faster than her. And Lawiswis DOES mean it, and the avian speedster Langay loses, to her very own dismay.

  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Gabriel voluntarily hangs up his wedding with Alwina for her sake, then she proceeds to completely ignore Gabriel by the time she got her Ugat-pak back and married Agiluz. Gabriel then tearfully watches the wedding and attempts to commit suicide on the cliff so that he won't attempt to bother her ever again.
  • I'm Dying, Please Take My MacGuffin: Bagwis died from the attacks of Ravenum's henchmen after he barely escaped with the package, but has managed to give the Ugat-paks to Aviona before he does so.
  • MacGuffin: The Gintong Binhi and the Ugat-paks of Alwina and Agiluz.
  • The Movie: Of Mulawin.
  • Title: The Adaptation: Mulawin: The Movie.
  • Token Mini-Moe: Pagaspas and Lawiswis. They were older than they seem to be, however...
  • Plug 'n' Play Friends: Taken up to 11 as most people who don't know Agiluz and Alwina (such as Agiluz' adoptive guardians) or even despise at least one of them (such as Gabriel) directly pledge their alliance to their conquest and even began to be closer to them in a nick of time. Subverted with Aviona, as she knew who Agiluz was from the start.


How well does it match the trope?
