Encantadia is a Filipino fantasy franchise produced and published by GMA Network. It consists of four television series that have run from 2005 to present and a single film.[2] The first was shown in 2005 carrying the title alone and ended in the same year with total of 160 episodes. The second series title Etheria: Ang Ikalimang Kaharian ng Encantadia premiered in the same year and ended in 2006 with 50 episodes. Due to its significant success, the third series title Encantadia: Pag-ibig Hanggang Wakas premiered in 2006 consisting of 48 episodes. In 2016, 11 years after the original run, a reboot of the series premiered on the same network featuring a new cast.[2] In 2005, Encantadia had a crossover film with Mulawin entitled Mulawin: The Movie, which was produced by GMA Pictures as an entry to the 2005 Metro Manila Film Festival.[3]



Encantadia is a term coined from the Filipino words "enkanto", "enkanta", "enkantada", or "enkantado", which was in turn derived from the Spanish term encant(ad)o/a, which means enchanted beings endowed with supernatural powers.[4] The series was created by GMA Network, the same network that produced the fantasy-themed series Mulawin and Darna. It was directed by Mark Reyes and Gil Tejada Jr., and written by Suzette Doctolero.[5][6] Originally, the series was intended as GMA Films' entry to the 2004 Metro Manila Film Festival but they later decided to make Encantadia a daily fantasy soap opera due to its huge production and budget. Encantadia was Doctolero's first head writing project with the network in 2005, and also served as her training for writing a fantasy story for the first time.[7] According to her, it was inspired by the story of Maria Makiling, a diwata (fairy) in Philippine folklore, in four different persona.[7] It was also inspired by different stories around the world combined into one.[7] The first three installment were consecutively shown from 2005 to 2006.[8][9] In 2010, a second saga or fourth installment was scheduled to be produced by GMA Network, but it was not push through until Atty Gozon, CEO of GMA Network pushed it back for 2012, but was scrapped.[10] In 2015,the director, producer and the writer were given a go signal by the network to make the new Encantadia.[11] In January 2016, it was announced that the fourth installment will be a reboot (often called as requel or retelling-sequel) of the old series .[12]


According to Mark Reyes, the sets of Encantadia in 2005 are located in various places in the Philippines. The Kingdom of Adamya is located at Calatagan, Batangas.[13] The cave set of Hathorian Kingdom is located at the Kalinawan Cave in Tanay, Rizal. Lireo's forest is located at Daranak Falls and Batlag Falls in Rizal.[13] A 1,900 square meter warehouse in Pasig served as an indoor set with an improvised pond.[13] The said warehouse was also a setting change for Lireo, Sapiro, Hera Andal, Hera Sensa and others. The Kingdom of Sapiro set is located inside the historic walled city of Intramuros (Old Manila) in the heart of Manila.[13] In its second and third installment, the series used the same locations.

In 2016, a 3000 square meter warehouse in Makati was converted to a set for the Lireo Kingdom and its forest.[14] The fallen Sapiro Kingdom and the Island of Cassiopeia were shot in Fortune Island in Batangas. Another warehouse set was converted as the Kingdom of Hathoria, while the mortal world were shot in various locations around Manila.[15] The forest of Encantadia were shot in Tanay, Rizal, Pundaquit in Zambales as well as Batlag Falls and Daranak Falls.[16]

Musical scoring[edit]

The main theme of the series is its own soundtrack titled "Tadhana"(destiny) described as a chant/hymn, composed and sung by Filipino folk singer Bayang Barrios.[17][18] According to Barrios, when she arrived in the recording studio, the hymn structure was already done by Allan Feliciano. The chant's theme is inspired by a drought and deforestation. One of the factors that contributed to the success of the 2005 series is its musical scoring, it was highly commended in the 2005 Asian Television Awards for "Best Original Music Score".[19] In the sequel, Etheria, aside from "Tadhana", Feliciano also arranged a soundtrack titled as "Hade!!" (to attack) which refer as the Etherian war song; sung also by Barrios. Unlike "Tadhana", it is a lyrical song formed in Enchanta. Based on the lyrics, the song is about the creation of Encantadia, the five kingdoms including Etheria, and warfare. In the end, the composer appears to question the unending violence in the land including the lack of love and peace.[20] Sub-tracks were also included in the series such as "Asshenti", an Etherian love song sung by Barrios and the Lirean Hymn, "Ivo"(life) arranged by Ariel Hugo, which was sung by Karylle. In the 2016 series, it uses the main soundtrack "Tadhana", which was modernized and beat has been altered to a rock-twist to fit the new generation.[17] Moreover, "Ivo" was also used as recorded by Gabbi Garcia.[21]

"Ang Mahiwagang Puso" (Enchanted Heart) written by Tats Faustino, sung by Karylle and Jerome John Hughes was used as a soundtrack to the original version of the series.[22] Karylle also recorded "Hiling" (Wish) but was rarely used in the series. "Pangarap ni Lira" (Lira's wish), composed by Suzette Doctolero, arranged by Eric Torralba and sung by Jennylyn Mercado was also part of the soundtrack.[23] Other soundtracks include "Isang Bagong Mundo" (A whole new world) performed by Jennylyn Mercado, arranged by Eric Torralba and written by Suzette Doctolero; "Sa Pakpak ng Paru-paro" (Fairy's Wings) composed by Mark A. Reyes and arranged by Eric Torralba.[23]

"Maghihintay Ako" (I'll Be Waiting), sung by Gabbi Garcia and Christian Bautista and "Sa Pangarap Lang" (Through a Dream) sung by Mikee Quintos are being used in the 2016 series.[24][25] Mikee Quintos also recorded "Ang Awit ni Lira" (Lira's Hymn) for the requel.[26]


Encantadia is an enchanted realm inhabited by a race of magical Elf-like beings called Encantados. It was created thousand years ago by five deities Haliya, Arde, Emre, Keros and Ether, who were referred to as bathala (Gods) in present times.[27] The world they created was settled by a primitive race of humans called "barbaro". The Bathala then created a caste system to distinguish each race: the diwata's (fairies) of the Kingdom of Lireo; mystical creatures of the Adamyan territory; the warriors and healers called Sapiryans of the Kingdom of Sapiro; and the blacksmiths of the Kingdom of Hathoria.[28] The four kingdoms were thus formed and they worshipped Emre, the greatest of the Bathala. Emre's dominion over Encantadia prompted a jealous Arde and Ether to assassinate him.[27][29] Emre discovered their plan and cursed both of them: Arde became a dragon and was sent to guard valaak (hell) while Ether was turned into a giant snake as a reminder of her treachery.[29] Emre's punishment of the two Bathala divided Encantadia's inhabitants into several factions based on the gods they worship.[29] Most encantados followed Ether and established the Kingdom of Etheria, which came to dominate Encantadia with an iron fist until its Queen Avria was deposed by the four resurgent kingdoms to restore peace and stability.[29]

The Gods[edit]

Ether resurrected her ancient fallen empire in the present to create a divine coup and take Emre's throne in Devas.

The Gems[edit]

The world of Encantadia is powered and guarded by a powerful gem called Inang Brilyante (mother gem) created by Cassiopeia, the first Queen of Lireo.[39] The gem has powerful characteristics and abilities, and is considered as the most powerful relic in Encantadia.[40] Many encantados covet the gemstone in an attempt to rule the realm, driving Cassiopeia to break it into four elemental gems that hold balance to the realm: fire, air, water and earth.[40] She then handed them to the four kingdoms of Encantadia for safekeeping. However, King Arvak of Hathoria, consumed by greed, desired to acquire all the gems, so he used the fire gemstone he protected as a weapon in his war to conquer Encantadia. In the ensuing war, Arvak was killed and Prince Raquim of Sapiro was able to recover the fire and water gem from King Arvak, and decided to bring the two gems, along with Sapiro's earth gem, to Lireo for safekeeping.[39] Since then, the four powerful gems are guarded by Queen Minea of Lireo who then hands them to her four daughters: Pirena, the keeper of the fire gem; Amihan, the air gem; Alena, the water gem; and Danaya, the earth gem.[39] In the reboot a fifth gem is introduced as a small shard of the mother gem. When the mother gem is destroyed, the fifth gem is thrown to the sea shore where a lost mortal becomes its keeper.[41][42]

  • Fire Gem (Brilyante ng Apoy) – The gem grants its owner the power to control fire, warmth and light. In this sense, the beholder can intensify sunlight and conjure fire. This gem has the ability of shapeshifting into another person. It can also create volcanic eruptions.[43]
  • Air Gem (Brilyante ng Hangin) – The gem grants its owner the power to control the air, wind and coldness. In this sense, the beholder can change air currents, conjure oxygen in areas without it and transform into the air itself. It also grants the holder the ability to fly and shapeshift into wind. The gem can also be employed in detecting the presence of nearby beings by tracing the sound of their breaths.[43]
  • Water Gem (Brilyante ng Tubig) – The gem grants its keeper the power to control water. It enhances its keeper's strength and enables the person to control biosonar, liquids and sea creatures. It also enables its keeper to summon rain and portray an image through water.[43]
  • Earth Gem (Brilyante ng Lupa) – The gem grants its owner earth-based powers, enabling the person to control the earth, vegetation and nature. In this sense, the beholder can conjure earthquakes, communicate with plants and animals, shapeshift into any flora and fauna and heal herself. Without the presence of the gem of earth, plants would wilt, animals would die, and beings in Encantadia would weaken.[43]
  • Spirit Gem (Brilyante ng Diwa) - In the 2016 series, a fifth gem, also called Brilyante ng Diwa (Gem of Spirit) was introduced as a result of a fragment from Cassiopeia's intense breakage of the Mother gem. Its powers and abilities are all the abilities of the four gemstone and has power to give life and control spirits and the spirit realm[44]
  • Purple Gem (Brilyanteng Lila) - Also in the 2016 series, a sixth gem Brilyanteng Lila (Purple Gem) was also introduced, a cube shaped amethyst used by Emre to tempt Lira with power, along with riches. He said that the sixth gem has equal power to the first five gems. It has the power of balance of nature. The first five gems are to create and maintain, the final gem is for destruction and rebirth. Its powers is to balance all the works (anti-matter) of all the other gems. Lira declined the gem and was kept until now by Emre. This gem is not part of the Inang Brilyante (Mother Gem).


Encantadia uses a fictional language called Enchanta.[45] It was created and conceptualized by Suzette Doctolero to make the viewers feel that the world of Encantados be somehow realistic and genuine. Doctolero created its vocabulary from many Indo-European languages with some influences of Philippine languages especially Tagalog.[46] It can be traced from words like "corre", to love (from the root "cor" meaning heart) and "avoya", to travel (voyage).[46] The language is also notable as it sounds like it's from a European country because of the tone and the phonotactics.[46] Most characters from the Encantadia saga know how to speak Enchanta, but it was Cassiopeia that had spoken the language most in the whole series, from the fact that she is the first diwata (fairy) of Lireo and ancestor of all the royal-blooded diwatas.[45][47]

Outcome The Empire of Etheria has been defeated by the combined forces of the other four kingdoms of Encantadia and resulted in the death of Etherian Queen Avria. Encantadia was then divided into the four kingdoms of Lireo, Adamya, Sapiro and Hathoria. Mine-a assumed the throne of Lireo. The King of Hathoria, Arvak was killed toward the end of the war while leading his troops trying to stem a full retreat of his armies after the successful onslaught of the allied Encantadian armies that broke the back of his invasion forces. The Water and Fire gems were recovered and brought to Lireo for safe keeping. King Hagorn was killed by his own daughter Pirena, and eventually reclaimed the fire gem. All of Hathoria retreated, and Lireo gained its victory. The four gems was then merged back into one. Lira is supposed to succeed Amihan, but refused, leading the throne of Lireo to Danaya.

In the 2016 series of Encantadia, Amihan gave up her life to fight Hagorn's army of spirits. King Hagorn was then killed by Pirena leading to Hathoria's fall. Emre also defeated Arde and Ether. Danaya ascended the throne of Lireo, while Ybrahim finally crowned as King of Sapiro. The five gems was then merged back as one.

Appears only in the 2016 version of Encantadia. The war has brought the death of Ariana and Muyak, King Hagorn was killed by Raquim while Ether has been punished by Emre. Peace was restored to all the Kingdoms. Alena ascended the throne of Lireo, while Cassiopeia became a Bathaluman (Goddess).

Main series[edit]

Encantadia (2005)[edit]

Queen Minea is the ruler of Lireo and she lives with her daughters Amihan, Alena, Danaya, and Pirena, who are collectively called the Sang'gres who are tasked with protecting the four elemental gemstones that bring harmony and peace to the realm of Encantadia. Everything changed when Pirena, Minea's eldest daughter, consumed by greed and jealousy, revolts against her half sister Amihan who has been chosen by their mother as the new Queen of Lireo instead of her.[48] This provokes Pirena to give away the fiery gemstone she protected to her biological father Hagorn, ruler of the fiery Kingdom of Hathoria. With the fire gemstone in Hagorn's hands, he and Pirena wage war against the kingdoms of Encantadia to conquer the realm. Amidst the raging War of the Four Gems, Lira, the lost daughter of Amihan, returns to Encantadia to try to mend the broken relationships of the strong-willed Sang'gres and restore peace to the realm.[49]

The prophecy is eventually fulfilled with the birth of Cassandra. Etheria rose again from the ashes and in order to save the present, the four Sang'gres of Lireo travelled to the past, in ancient Encantadia, to find the lost Sang'gre and destroy the Ginintuang Orasan (Etheria's powerful weapon) to stop Avria's centuries-old plan to dominate the realm.[50]

A free mobile application game available in IOS and Android entitled Encantadia Blast was released in 2016.

It is inspired by Candy Crush Saga with the use of the series' powerful gems.[65]

Earlier in 2006, a non-free mobile game called Encantadia was released exclusively for Symbian/Java-capable devices, published by GetJar.[66]

Home media[edit]

On March 4, 2008, GMA records released the episodes of the 2005 series of Encantadia on DVD with 160 episodes divided into 12 volumes of DVD.[67] Jason John Lim, former head of GMA records in 2005 stated in an interview that the DVD was released due to public demands specially for viewers overseas.[68]


On December 24, 2016, series of photos of different Encantadia collectible items has been uploaded on Instagram by the director and casts including jackets, mugs, stickers, notebooks and caps during their Christmas party held at Riverside Studions, Manila.[69][70] On December 25, it was announced that official merchandise for the series will be available in January 2017.[71][72]

In popular culture[edit]

An Encantadia parody has also been featured in a comedy show, Bubble Gang under GMA Network in 2005 entitled as "Pinkantadia". The parody was inspired by the 2005 series including the sequel, Etheria.[73] The said spoof featured comedy actors, Michael V., Wendell Ramos, Antonio Aquitania and Ara Mina. In 2016–2017, another spoof from Bubble Gang arose and known as "Engkantodo" which depicts hunger. The said spoof featured comedy actors Michael V, Sef Cadayona, Antonio Aquitania, Paolo Contis, Betong Sumaya, Boy2 Quizon, Max Collins, Jackie Rice, and Valeen Montenegro. Rice was the former Rehav Armea in the original series while Collins played Sang'gre Amihan and Montenegro played Bathalumang Haliya in the new series.[74]
