Mompracem

English Version

Welcome to Mompracem.de

Sandokan ist known as a hero in some TV-series. Nevertheless, he has only been on TV or cinema-films because of the Italian author Emilio Salgari who was written many novels on Sandokan. Some people are convinced that Emilio Salgari has invented Sandokan, but that is not true: Sandokan has really existed!

Here you can find information on the real, the "historical" Sandokan, on his island Mompracem, on Emilio Salgari and his novel-cycle on Sandokan (Ciclo dei Pirati della Malesia), on the many Sandokan-films, on Syarif Osman, the leader of Marudu Bay who was a compagnion of the historical Sandokan, and finally on me, too.

The information, which is published on this page, is based on my research work on Sandokan, so please do not copy anything from this page without asking me!

While the expectation for the reboot grows, Kabir Bedi - the Sandokan par excellence, never forgotten in the title role of the drama - has just made an important endorsement through an interview with Tv Sorrisi e Canzoni. “I always thought that Sandokan had to be redone with modern special effects. I'm sure Can Yaman will be a worthy successor. I can't wait to see him in this new incarnation ", his words. Today 75, Kabir is proud to have played that immortal character: "The Italy that made me immortal, thanks to Sandokan: it is an iconic role, a symbol of courage and freedom.

Remake of Sandokan

In 2021 the filming of a remake TV of "Sandokan" should take place. It will be shot as a series for Italian TV, but it's an international project, so hopefully the series will be shown in other countries, too.

Sandokan is played by the Turkish actor Can Yaman (photo), Yanez by the Italian actor Luca Argentero. According to Macher, the role of Marianna is to be expanded compared to the old versions, it will go in the direction of Amazon or pirate bride, there should be quite a bit of action. The content is only largely based on the original by Salgari, which is a pity. If the table of contents is to be believed, elements from various Sandokan films appear. Alessandro Sermoneta and Davide Lantieri wrote the scripts.
