Why in the world did Where is Elisa? end?
When Where is Elisa? came to an end after 1 year in August 2010, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Cecilia Altamira Cáceres (Catherine Siachoque), Mariano Altamira (Gabriel Porras) and Dana Riggs Altamira (Sonya Smith). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Where is Elisa? reunion disappoint people?
Where is Elisa? aired from 2010-2010 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 Smith said she's not sure if Where is Elisa? would work today. “I don't want to see old Dana Riggs Altamira,” she told a journalist (Smith turned 49 in April). “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 Where is Elisa? movie?
In a recent interview, Catherine Siachoque said she can't imagine a Where is Elisa? 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 Sonya Smith 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 Where is Elisa? movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Where is Elisa? film, Gabriel Porras stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Where is Elisa? reboot?
Recasting Where is Elisa? 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.
