Poster, Synopsis And Release Date Announced for HBO Max’s Original Series GREMLINS: SECRETS OF THE MOGWAI
Following its 35th Anniversary showing in 4DX, it has been announced that beloved franchise GREMLINS is finally going to receive a new chapter - in an unexpected form.
Whilst we won’t be getting a live action threequel any time soon, we will be getting a HBO Max streaming service, and The Fan Carpet are excited to share with you that an animated series called GREMLINS: SECRETS OF THE MOGWAI is on track for 2021.
Whilst the streaming service is launching in May, Co-Executive Producer Brendan Hay has confirmed that the first season of GREMLINS: SECRETS OF THE MOGWAI, is expected to consist of ten episodes but it won't be released until sometime in 2021.
We hadn't heard an update on the show since last July, so at least now we know that it's still moving forward and is on track to make its way out into the world next year.
Written by Co-Executive Producer Tze Chun, the series has the following synopsis:
In the animated television adaptation, we travel back to 1920s Shanghai to reveal the story of how 10-year-old Sam Wing (future shop owner Mr. Wing in the 1984 movie) met the young Mogwai called Gizmo. Along with a teenage street thief named Elle, Sam and Gizmo take a perilous journey through the Chinese countryside, encountering, and sometimes battling, colorful monsters and spirits from Chinese folklore. On their quest to return Gizmo to his family and uncover a legendary treasure, they are pursued by a power-hungry industrialist and his growing army of evil Gremlins.
GREMLINS: SECRETS OF THE MOGWAI is being produced by Amblin Television in association with Warner Bros. Animation. The executive producers are Darryl Frank, Justin Falvey, and Sam Register. Dan Krall is a supervising producer.
GREMLINS is our MD’s favourite film of all time, and so it is good to know we have more Gremlins to look forward to in the near future...
