Why in the world did Corona de lágrimas end?
When Corona de lágrimas came to an end after 1 year in February 2013, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Rómulo Ancira (Ernesto Laguardia), Julieta Vásquez (Maribel Guardia) and Refugio Chavero Hernández (Victoria Ruffo). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Corona de lágrimas reunion disappoint people?
Corona de lágrimas aired from 2012-2013 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 Guardia said she's not sure if Corona de lágrimas would work today. “I don't want to see old Julieta Vásquez,” she told a journalist (Guardia turned 61 in May). “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 Corona de lágrimas movie?
In a recent interview, Victoria Ruffo said she can't imagine a Corona de lágrimas 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 Maribel Guardia 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 Corona de lágrimas movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Corona de lágrimas film, Ernesto Laguardia stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Corona de lágrimas reboot?
Recasting Corona de lágrimas 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 Corona de lágrimas reunion, a Corona de lágrimas movie, or a Corona de lágrimas reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
