First GREMLINS: SECRETS OF THE MOGWAI Trailer Promises A Cute & Fluffy Gizmo

The delightfully cute animated series will debut on Max on May 23rd.




Warner Bros. Discovery announced that the prequel series Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai will be coming to Max, the newly unveiled streaming service, on May 23rd, 2023. As well as the official release date, we also received our first look at the animated spin-off show. The style may be different, but the rules are still very much the same.

Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai takes viewers back to 1920s Shanghai where the Wing family first meets the young Mogwai called Gizmo. Sam Wing (future shop owner Mr. Wing in the 1984 Gremlins film) accepts the dangerous task to take 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.

Secrets of the Mogwai stars Ming-Na Wen, James Hong, BD Wong, Matthew Rhys, Izaac Wang, AJ LoCascio and Gabrielle Nevaeh Green. The adorable animated series will also feature guest stars including Zach Galligan who played Billy Peltzer in the original Gremlins film, Sandra Oh, Randall Park, George Takei and Bowen Yang.
