Opening the year on a stellar note, teen phenomenons, Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber score their first #MakingMEGA and international cover shoot—bewitching us in their own version of a new-age fairytale romance in the eclectic grounds of Germany.
Clad in stately ensembles, the noteworthy love team were royally dressed to the nines as they braved the freezing European weather to capture the perfect shots. As the #MakingMEGAinGermany documentary finally premieres tomorrow, here’s what you can expect from the remarkable duo and the #MakingMEGA team’s expedition in Frankfurt and Heidelberg as they took on the land of poets and thinkers in style.
Of course, other than the illustrious cover stars, the very highlight of #MakingMEGA is all things sartorially brilliant.

Together, they perfectly fit in with the splendid landscape.
It’s always interesting to see the course of creating such a grand cover and the winter sceneries of Germany definitely made a case for intrigue. You’ll see all the challenges that Maymay, Edward and the #MakingMEGA team faced—from the weather to scouting locations and to the clothes. You’ll be a witness to how they overcame obstacles to produce this major project and all the while having fun in the process.
THE MAYWARD MOMENTS
Mayward fans, we’ve got you covered. We know you’re on the lookout for Maymay and Edward’s behind the scenes antics and let us tell you, they’re as quirky and endearing off camera as they are onscreen. The two were seen sharing sweet moments on camera and off the shoot process so be on the lookout for adorable outtakes that will definitely make you swoon.
Germany is a country rich with culture and artistic flair and also a place that’s near and dear to Edward’s heart. “Germany is really close to my heart because I was born and raised here. Here, actually, in Heidelberg. So getting to shoot here is a big deal for me because this is where I grew up and there’s a lot of sentimental value,” the 17-year-old tells about his hometown. For Maymay, she recalled how surreal it was getting to be a cover star for MEGA, “Pinangarap ko lang, magka-photoshoot kahit simple, yung parang mukhang artista na ako pero ang binigay sa akin, sobra pa.” And indeed, the entire experience was like an adventure out of a dream sequence—fanciful and like an absolute modern fairytale.
The #MakingMEGA documentary with Mayward premieres tomorrow on Sunday, March 3 at the IMAX theatre at SM Aura Premier
