NETFLIX has released the first look for “Hayop Ka! The Nimfa Dimaano Story.” The adult-animation film from the Philippines starring Angelica Panganiban, Sam Milby and Robin Padilla is set to premiere on Oct. 29.
Directed by Avid Liongoren, written by Manny Angeles and Paulle Olivenza, “Hayop Ka! The Nimfa Dimaano Story” is the first animated Netflix Film from the Philippines. Available across Asia in Taglish, and English as “You Animal!,” this adult animation comedy is a refreshing look at societal expectations, personal aspirations and the classic love triangle.
Nimfa Dimaano (Panganiban) is a pretty pussycat and a perfume sales kitty at a department store. Her boyfriend, Roger (Padilla), the macho mongrel, is a janitor. Nimfa meets Iñigo Villanueva (Milby), the bourgeoisie business dog and their chemistry ignites. Will Nimfa and Roger’s love for DVDs and cheap street food keep them together or will Iñigo’s high society charms tear them apart?
Additional voice cast include Empoy Marquez, Piolo Pascual, Arci Muñoz, Eugene Domingo, Yeng Constantino, Moira dela Torre and Bb Joyce Bernal.
Animated and produced by Rocketsheep Studio and Spring Films, “Hayop Ka! The Nimfa Dimaano Story” will be available on Netflix, Oct. 29. (PR)
