"Buto, kalansay, tabi-tabi po sa bangkay. Lulubog, lilitaw, sasarado hukay!"
Good news ‘90s kids! Remember Jubal, Sambag, and Omar? How about the Yasmin, Sifu, and Telang Bayawak?
Can’t remember? Here’s something to bring back those nostalgic feels:
That’s right, everyone. That’s freakin’ Magic Temple and it is freakin’ back!
Celebrating its 20th anniversary this 2016, the Peque Gallaga and Lore Reyes masterpiece is out to bring back our childhood memories after ABS-CBN has digitally remastered the movie.
Magic Temple, which won Best Picture in the 1996 Metro Manila Film Festival, is about the journey of three young boys who go on a quest to save the magical world of Samadhi after it is threatened by the villainous Ravenal.
Watch the good-as-new trailer here:
ABS-CBN also released the screening dates for the film:
WHERE: Power Plant Cinema 1
WHEN: December 7 (Wednesday), 12:30 PM; December 10 (Saturday), 7:45 PM; December 13 (Tuesday), 6:30 PM
Some characters from the film, such as Telang Bayawak played by Gina Pareño, young Jubal played by Carlo Aquino, and Ravenal played by Jackie Lou Blanco, are still very much active in showbiz. But how about the others? We know you’re curious. No worries, FHM did the job of researching your childhood favorites.

Jason migrated to the United States to continue his studies when he was just 18 years old. From what we’ve heard, our much-beloved Jubal graduated with a degree in Architectural Drafting.
2) Junell “Sambag” Hernando
Junell is also in the US and is now happily married.
3) Marc “Omar” Solis
Marc is still active in showbiz. Currently, you can catch him in ABS-CBN’s primetime offering Ang Probinsyano.

5) Jun “Sifu” Urbano
Sifu is still pretty much killing it as a thespian. He, alongside Lou Veloso, Leo Rialp, and Nanding Jose, recently won the Best Supporting Actor award for this year’s Cinemalaya film Hiblang Abo.
