Grazilda is a Filipino fantasy series based on Drizella, the stepsister of Cinderella. It premiered on GMA Network on September 13, 2010 and on GMA Pinoy TV on September 15, 2010. The series features an alternative history of La petite Pantoufle de Verre (The Little Glass Slipper) in the point of view of Cinderella's stepsister, Grazilda (Glaiza de Castro).[1] The final episode of the show aired on April 29, 2011.


The story opens from a fairy tale land called Fantasia where the audience is introduced to the backstory of the family of Grazilda. Grazilda's mother, Matilda (Rio Locsin), falls in love with a man named Fernando (Joel Torre) who comes from the mortal world. The two elope and have two daughters, Fernanda and Anatalia. Fernando promises not to leave Matilda for the mortal world and past love, Veronne (Cherie Gil). This all changes however when the Fairy Godmother (Jolina Magdangal) banishes Fernando to the mortal world as this disrupted the peace in Fantasia.

Matilda is heartbroken when her parents tell her that Fernando had left her. Angrily, she renames Fernanda as Grazilda (Sheryl Cruz).

Fabiola, being empowered by playing Fairy Godmother to Matilda, decides to challenge the real Fairy Godmother and take control of Fantasia. In the process, she kills Anatalia, takes Fairy Godmother captive, and obtains sovereignty over the kingdom. In a twist of fate, Grazilda is brought back to Fantasia by Fairy Godmother to face her destiny: to defeat Fabiola as only a half-blood (her father Fernando is a mortal) can vanquish her kind.

As she was preparing for the battle, Grazilda met another prince charming in Kasmir, Fabiola's brother. Falling for Grazilda and disheartened by his sister's actions, Kasmir vowed to help Grazilda. He stole the magical baton, transporting Grazilda and himself to the mortal world.

Who is Grazilda's real prince-charming, Eric or Kasmir? Who will Eric choose, Grazilda or Cindy? Will Grazilda defeat Fabiola and restore peace to Fantasia or will Fabiola prevail?
