Gremlins animated prequel series is coming this May.
Gremlins: Secret Of The Mogwai will premiere on MAY 23 on Max, formerly HBO Max. The new animated series will take viewers back to 1920s Shanghai. This is when the Wing family first meets the young Mogwai called Gizmo. The all-star voice cast includes Ming-Na Wen, James Hong, BD Wong, Matthew Rhys, Izaac Wang, and Gabrielle Neveah Green. The series will also feature notable guest stars, including Zach Galligan, who starred as the hero “Billy Peltzer” in the original “Gremlins” films. Additional guest voices include Sandra Oh, Randall Park, George Takei, and Bowen Yang.
Sam Wing (future shop owner Mr. Wing in the 1984 “Gremlins” film) accepts the dangerous task of taking Gizmo home and embarks on a journey through the Chinese countryside. Sam and Gizmo are joined by a teenage street thief named Elle, and together, they encounter—and sometimes battle—colorful monsters and spirits from Chinese folklore. Along their quest, they are pursued by a power-hungry industrialist and his growing army of evil Gremlins.
