UPDATE 29/11/2020 : This story seems to be false. (read more)
Can you believe it's been 10 years since Aurora first aired?! (10 years, 28 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Aurora end?
When Aurora came to an end after 1 year in May 2011, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Martín Lobos / Lorenzo Lobos / Sebastian Lobos (Eugenio Siller), Lorenzo Lobos (Jorge Luis Pila), Aurora Ponce de León (Sara Maldonado) and Angela Amenábar (Sonya Smith). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would an Aurora reunion disappoint people?
Aurora aired from 2010-2011 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Pila said he's not sure if Aurora would work today. “I don't want to see old Lorenzo Lobos,” he told a journalist (Pila turned 48 in August). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” he added.
Still hoping for an Aurora movie?
In a recent interview, Zuleyka Rivera (who played Diana Del Valle) said she can't imagine an Aurora reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Sara Maldonado has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did an Aurora movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be an Aurora film, Jorge Luis Pila stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about an Aurora reboot?
Recasting Aurora for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of an Aurora reunion, an Aurora movie, or an Aurora reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
