V5JUDGING from the anticipation generated in social by the coming telecast of “Voltes V Legacy” that airs on Monday, May 9, it is clear that this big-budget GMA production has all the makings of a mammoth hit.

Those who have seen it on the big screen in its advanced screening are unanimous in saying that it’s one helluva dazzling, spectacular show that is most certainly worth waiting for.

“Yes, it is really worth waiting for,” says Miguel Tanfelix who plays the lead role of Steve Armstrong. “Kung sila, natutuwa na mapapanood na nila ito. Kami rin, tuwang-tuwa na ang show na pinaghirapan naming gawin for almost four years during the height of the pandemic, sa wakas, heto, mapapanood na rin nila right in the comfort of their own homes.”

“We are really proud of the show and the work we’ve done to make sure it will be of world class quality,” says Miguel’s leading lady, Ysabel Ortega, who plays Jamie Robinson. “When my family and I watched it in the cinema, I realized I am so fortunate to be part of this big prestige project. I will forever be proud na nakasama ako rito sa ‘Voltes V Legacy’. Dahil din dito, Miguel and I got to know each other better while we were doing it. We’re now closer than before.”

Meantime, the entire cast of “Voltes V Legacy” joined hands in the fight against piracy. They’ve launched a new video campaign as part of GMA Network’s ongoing efforts to combat piracy and protect the rights of content creators.

In the video, lead actor Miguel Tanfelix as Steve Armstrong stresses the importance of legal streaming platforms to ensure the success of the show and the livelihood of its creators. “Suportahan po natin ang local TV networks, local films, at producers of original content by watching only on legitimate platforms.”

Ysabel Ortega as Jamie Robinson expressed her gratitude to the agencies working to stop piracy. “Salamat po sa lahat ng agencies that are continuously working to stop piracy. Malaking bagay po ito sa lahat ng nasa entertainment industry.”

Meanwhile, Radson Flores as Mark Gordon emphasized the negative impact of piracy. “’Wag po tayong mag-share ng illegally downloaded content. Piracy na ‘yun.”

Joining the appeal is child actor Raphael Landicho as Little Jon. “Turuan po natin ang mga bata to stream responsibly para ‘di po sila ma-expose sa harmful content online.”

Matt Lozano as Big Bert stresses the potential for more productions if piracy is minimized. “Mas marami pa tayong mapo-produce na palabas kung pipillin natin ang legit.”

The video featuring the cast of Voltes V: Legacy is just one of the many efforts by GMA Network to raise awareness and encourage the public to support legitimate streaming platforms. The Network has been working closely with the Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment (ACE), the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL) and the Video Coalition of the Philippines (VCP) to combat piracy and protect intellectual property rights in the country. Through these partnerships, GMA Network is implementing various initiatives aimed at promoting responsible streaming and educating the public on the harmful effects of piracy.

‘Voltes V Legacy’ starts airing this Monday, 8 PM. It follows the adventures of the team of five pilots – Steve, Jamie, Big Bert, Little Jon, and Mark – as they fight to defend Planet Earth against the evil Boazanian empire. Fans from the 70s can expect to be transported back to their childhood as they follow the action-packed adventure of the beloved robot Voltes V and its brave pilots.
