Hayop Ka Filipino animation gets criticized for casting Robin Padilla as one of the lead characters


Wazzup Pilipinas!

The first animated Netflix film from the Philippines is arriving in the streaming site in October.

“Hayop Ka! The Nimfa Dimaano Story," a rom-com film featuring the voices of Angelica Panganiban, Robin Padilla, and Sam Milby, is dropping on October 29.

"Because of Robin Padilla’s part in the film, some people called to boycott the animated film – but in a September 21 tweet, one of its animators appealed to viewers to support the film and not judge it by its actors alone."

Kawawa naman yung mga nasa likod ng produksyon nadamay dahil kay tabogong Robinhood. Parang yung "Mulan" 2020 lang.

Do you know why Robin was among the cast? Joyce Bernal is one of the producers. Joyce Bernal, the Presidential SONA director. Lol!

We are not obliged to call for a support to a film totally messed up by a miscast!

We have so many amazing, established, professional voice actors, but the film chose prestige casting (even though Robin Padilla’s voice just sounds like...Robin Padilla) so they have to bear the consequences. 

Animated films take a long time to produce and maybe nacast na nila si Robin as one of the voice actors prior to his social media kabobohan antics. I will support the film to support Filipino creators and animators but not for Robin.

Based on the trailer, I am indeed tempted not to see this film. Mr. Padilla, was miscast or because of his previous roles, was pigeon holed into the underdog lover trope and was casted because of it. They could've looked for better voice actors. He sound very breathy at the end of his lines and it doesn't suit the character he plays.

Actually, they've all been typecasted. This is why the trailer itself sounds awkward. They should also consider the character of the artists they are getting. If it has a good reputation and if the action is a good example to others.

The thing is, Robin Padilla is a very divisive person. The production knew that before they hired him, they weighed their options and still went with him maybe thinking there are more Robin fans than detractors? 

So to the animator, I’m sorry, many would probably not see your work, or just watch it over pirated sites online. Good luck on your future projects, hopefully you will learn from this mistake.

Robin is a trash but let’s give it a shot sa Filipino animated film na ito. Unfair yan kung hindi natin susuportahan dahil lang sa iisang aktor, hindi pa nga natin napapanood. The trailer usually does not show the bigger picture of how good the animators and storytellers are.

Dapat kasi yung kinuha nyung artista yung walang kinikilingang politiko. Everything is politics. Always remember that. Lahat ng bagay, may influence yung political beliefs and disbeliefs. So, people (the consumers) have the final say to it. Good luck sa animation ninyo.

Mag isip-isip na ang mga producer na sa susunod wag na nilang kunin ang mga artistang pro Duterte. Hindi rin to mapapanood at masusuportahan ng mga DeDeEs kasi wala sila lahat pang-Netflix. Puro Piratebay lang. Unless dagdagan ang kanilang TF....or isama mga Chinese paid trolls....pati na yung PNP at AFP trolls.

Why did they go with actors instead of local dubbers who voiced for hero TV? They're hardly represented in cinema. kawawa naman yung mga nagpakahirap sa movie konti na nga lang animators natin dito.

How about the others? Are you still going to watch it just to support Philippine animation but you will surely cringe at every voice line of Robin Padilla? Or you'll mute his parts?
