Hudgens arrived in the Philippines on Saturday. This is her first time to visit the country 


Aside from Palawan, Hudgens will also be filming in Manila.

“I feel like ours is such a relatable story to so many women all over the world,” Hudgens said. “The more that we can share, the more we can lift each other up.”

Back in 2022, Hudgens said she hopes to have the immigrant story of her Filipina mother made into a movie. 

"My mom is from the Philippines, and growing up, there weren't really that many women who looked like me and my mom and my family on screen. It’s so important to share all the different stories because America is a massive melting pot, [just like the] world," the actress said in an interview with Glamour UK. 

The documentary film, which will delve into Hudgens’ family history and Filipino roots, will be produced and directed by Paul Soriano.
