On Monday, October 11, the streaming giant dropped the first teaser trailer for the upcoming film, Hayop Ka! The Nimfa Dimaano Story. While being an animated film usually suggests it’s intended to be seen by young audiences, this Netflix original is an exemption. Take note: it’s for adult viewers only. Watch the trailer to know why.


The 1:47 trailer opens with a disclaimer, warning its viewers that the video will feature mature themes like sex, foul language, and violence. From then on, viewers are introduced to the story that follows the titular character Nimfa Dimaano (Angelica Panganiban, a pretty pussycat who sells perfume at a department store for a living. Her boyfriend, Roger (Robin Padilla), is a macho mongrel who works as a janitor.

Later on, she meets Iñigo Villanueva (Sam Milby), a “bourgeoisie business dog” who forms instant chemistry with her. Caught in a love triangle, Nimfa finds herself needing to choose between Roger, who doesn’t seem to have ambitions, and Iñigo, who is her ticket to a better future.

Directed by Avid Liongoren, Hayop Ka! is animated and produced by Rocketsheep Studio and Spring Films. Its star-studded voice cast includes Empoy Marquez, Piolo Pascual, Arci Muñoz, Eugene Domingo, Yeng Constantino, Moira dela Torre and Bb Joyce Bernal.
