After more than 30 years since it debuted on television, the well-loved soap opera that turned child star Julie Vega into a household name is returning to the small screen.

ABS-CBN announced that child actress Andrea Brillantes, was chosen to play the title role of a poor girl "who has an immense capacity to touch and change the lives of everyone who crosses her path."

Brillantes, 10, whose former screen name was Blyth Gorostiza joined "Goin Bulilit" in 2010. She was later cast as the young Jackie, later played by Jessy Mendiola, in "Budoy."

She was also part of the shows "E-Boy,""Kahit Puso'y Masugatan" and "Ina Kapatid Anak."

Apart from Brillantes, "Annaliza" also stars Denise Laurel, Kaye Abad, Carlo Aquino and Zanjoe Marudo.

"Anna Liza" premiered in 1980 and ended with an incomplete story after Vega untimely death in 1986 from a cardiac arrest and bronchopneumonia.

The show’s director Theodore Boborol said the new "Annaliza" will will remain true to the original storyline but with a twist.

“We got the name of the characters but mayroon kaming babaguhin. Like the Guido character played by Renato del Prado, in the original version was a bad character. Dito gagawin namin siyang mabuti at hindi na siya two-dimensional character. Meaning mga tao ang mga ito. Wala nang mabait or siya yung good. Parang totoong tao ang gagampanan ng mga tao sa 'Annaliza,'" he said.
