The kingdom of Morocco on the northwestern part of Africa is a historic place for the latest work of Warkop DKI's preservation.
In Morocco, which has a very long coastline on the Atlantic Ocean, Falcon Pictures production house with director Rako Prijanto, and Indro Warkop (63) as the Warkop heir, brought Dono, Kasino and Indro back to the big screen.
After the success of its two predecessor movies, Warkop DKI Reborn: Jangkrik Boss! Part 1 (2017) and Warkop DKI Reborn: Jangkrik Boss! Part 2 (2018), now it's Warkop DKI Reborn's turn to create laughters in Indonesian cinemas.
Morocco became the location for the Warkop DKI Reborn movie, which now stars Aliando Syarief (27) as Dono, Adipati Dolken (27) as Kasino and Randy Danistha (34) as Indro.
Rako Prijanto, Indro Warkop and Falcon Pictures chose Morocco because many Hollywood productions were filmed there.
"The barrier during filming in Morocco is only in the language. The Moroccans' national language is French, but they speak Berber for daily use," said Rako Prijanto.
Although the languages are unfamiliar, Rako Prijanto chose Morocco as the filming location because he wanted Warkop DKI Reborn to be on par with Hollywood films.
Not only in the Sahara Desert, Aliando Syarief, Adipati Dolken and Randy Danistha had also done filming of Warkop DKI Reborn in Studio Atlas (Cinema Studio Atlas).
"All places in Morocco are often used to shoot Hollywood films," explained Rako Prijanto.
Game Of Thrones, John Wick, Gladiator, Indiana Jones, and The Mummy all chose the Kingdom of Morocco as the location for their films.
"What they have used in those films, we used them too," said Rako Prijanto.
In this Warkop DKI Reborn, Rako Prijanto and Indro Warkop together with Falcon Pictures no longer starred the actors who was in the previous Warkop DKI Reborn films.
"We follow the times, and the female characters are no less sexy," said Indro Warkop laughing.
Indro, whose full name is Indrojojo Kusumonegoro, mentioned that some of the young and beautiful film stars involved in Warkop DKI Reborn are Aurora Ribero and Salshabila.
The Warkop DKI Reborn meant by Indro Warkop is the latest film of Warkop DKI.
The story has no connection to Warkop DKI Reborn: Jangkrik Boss! Part 1 and Warkop DKI Reborn: Jangkrik Boss! Part 2.
Not only having a completely new story, the difference between Warkop DKI Reborn and the two previous box office films is the stars.
Indro Warkop still plays in the new Warkop DKI Reborn.
While the two previous films starred Abimana Aryasatya, Vino Bastian and Tora Sudiro, Warkop DKI Reborn now stars Aliando Syarief, Adipati Dolken and Rendy 'Nidji' Danistha.
Aliando Syarief played the role of Dono, Adipati Dolken played Kasino and Rendy Danistha became Indro.
"They (Aliando Syarief & co) are the in film stars for Warkop DKI fans from themillennial generation," Indro Warkop said.
The director who worked on the new Warkop DKI Reborn is also different.
Taking over from Anggy Umbara, Rako Prijanto is now in charge of the Falcon Pictures' film.
The airing of Warkop DKI Reborn in theaters starting September 12, 2019 is even more special because it's like a gift for the 46th anniversary of Warkop DKI.
