Why in the world did Destinos Cruzados end?
When Destinos Cruzados came to an end after 1 year in January 2014, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Sílvia Candeias Moreira / Laura Veiga de Andrade (Alexandra Lencastre), Sónia Candeias Moreira (Jessica Athayde) and Fernanda Candeias Moreira (Rita Pereira). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Destinos Cruzados reunion disappoint people?
Destinos Cruzados aired from 2013-2014 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 Lencastre said she's not sure if Destinos Cruzados would work today. “I don't want to see old Sílvia Candeias Moreira / Laura Veiga de Andrade,” she told a journalist (Lencastre turned 56 in September). “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 Destinos Cruzados movie?
In a recent interview, Rita Pereira said she can't imagine a Destinos Cruzados 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 Jessica Athayde 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 Destinos Cruzados movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Destinos Cruzados film, Alexandra Lencastre stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
