Can you believe it's been 8 years since Brazilian Women first aired?! (8 years, 7 months, 23 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Brazilian Women end?
When Brazilian Women came to an end after 1 year in June 2012, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Ângela Cristina (Glória Pires), Janaína (Juliana Paes) and Ludmila (Patricia Pillar). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Brazilian Women reunion disappoint people?
Brazilian Women aired from 2012-2012 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 Pillar said she's not sure if Brazilian Women would work today. “I don't want to see old Ludmila,” she told a journalist (Pillar turned 56 in January). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” she added.
Still hoping for a Brazilian Women movie?
In a recent interview, Ísis Valverde (who played Catarina) said she can't imagine a Brazilian Women 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 Leandra Leal (who played Rosa Maria) has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a Brazilian Women movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Brazilian Women film, Paulo José stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Brazilian Women reboot?
Recasting Brazilian Women 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 a Brazilian Women reunion, a Brazilian Women movie, or a Brazilian Women reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
