Good people don’t do that because they know there are codes and they argue. That the villains do not differ. But there is more to this film than a villain, what you see are more pranks,” the actor reveals. “It’s all very white, very naive‘ adds the singer and actress.

That’s why you have to see it in the cinema,” stresses Naranjo.

It has incredible sound that can only be enjoyed on the big screen. It’s important to go to the movies to have that experience, to be with the popcorn, with the drink, with the music. It’s the best way to enjoy it“Adds Fernández. On the other hand, Naranjo managed to blend into her character and give the villain a unique personality.
