Fans who attended the panel of actress Larissa Manoela on the first day of TUDUM Festival Netflix on Saturday at Bienal do Ibirapuera got a big surprise. After releasing the movie Airplane Mode, which marked the actress’ debut on the streaming service, Larissa revealed that her next feature film, Lulli, will be released in 2021, only on Netflix.
Lulli is an ambitious young medical student who dreams of being the best surgeon in the world, leaving nothing and no one to get in her way – not even her recent ex-boyfriend. But her world turns upside down when she is electrocuted by a magnetic resonance imaging device, and she begins — ironically — to hear the thoughts of others.
Now the girl who until then was unable to hear the people around her will need to learn about the wonders and dangers of knowing what others are thinking.
“I am very happy with my second movie on Netflix! I have the challenge of playing a super-mature woman. The character is totally out of my reality. It will be a different story, people will be very surprised,” said Larissa Manoela.
The first day of the event, which is open to the public, ended with something that many had been expecting and that made everybody present on Sintonia’s panel very excited: season two is confirmed.
After Doni, Rita, and Nando have struggled to conquer their space, they must climb to the top to avoid returning to their starting point. When funk music, crime, and the church collide in the daily life of the slum, their friendship will be put to the test. Is it possible to succeed without forgetting who you are?
The shooting of the new episodes of Sintonia, directed by Konrad Dantas, aka Kondzilla, creator of the world’s largest music channel on YouTube, will start in the first half of this year in São Paulo. The release date is set for 2020 on Netflix. There will be six chapters of 45 minutes each. Gullane is producing the second season.
“We exceeded expectations in the first season. It was Netflix’s most popular Brazilian series in 2019, and our only challenge was to follow our hearts. In the second season, in addition to our love, we will also add the energy of the audience that felt represented on the series and is waiting for something even bigger,” celebrated Konrad.
