About I Am Not Big Bird Movie:

I Am Not Big Bird is a Philippine comedy film directed by Victor Villanueva from a story and screenplay written by Lilit Reyes and Joma Libayen. It stars Enrique Gil, Pepe Herrera, Nikko Natividad, and Red Ollero.

The project, which will be shot almost entirely in Thailand, was developed before the COVID-19 pandemic but it was later shelved because of the imposed travel restrictions.

According to Victor Villanueva, the story was based on the experiences of Reyes’ friend while he was on a vacation in Thailand where several women mistook him for someone, causing Lilit Reyes and his friend to be confused.

The cast and production staff flew to Thailand where they spent 14 days filming the sequences, particularly in the cities of Pattaya and Bangkok.

Jointly produced by Anima Studios, Black Sheep Productions, and Immerse Entertainment and released by Star Cinema, this film marks the first film production venture of Enrique Gil as well as his comeback after a three-year hiatus.

The film was originally set to be released on 25 December 2023, as part of the 49th Metro Manila Film Festival but it was not accepted as one of the official entries by the committee. After failing to be accepted as an MMFF entry, the film’s release date was moved to 14 February 2024.
