The full trailer of the historical film Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral has been released.
The film is a historical biopic about General Gregorio Del Pilar, one of the youngest Filipino generals during the Philippine Revolution and the Philippine-American War. Gregorio is famously known for his feat in the Battle of Tirad Pass, where he led a 60-man Filipino rear guard to fight against hundreds of American soldiers to ensure the escape of President Emilio Aguinaldo and his soldiers. The standoff led to his death on December 2, 1899.
Paulo Avelino plays the role of General Gregorio Del Pilar. The film also featured other stars like Mon Confiado as Emilio Aguinaldo and Epy Quizon as Apolinario Mabini.
The film is a sequel to the 2015 historical film Heneral Luna which featured John Arcilla as Antonio Luna. Both films were directed by Jerrold Tarog.
Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral will be showing in cinemas nationwide on September 5.
