35 years have passed since we first met The Gremlins.
Having received the official sequel back in 1990, there’s now an animated prequel in the works!
Titled Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai, the film is set in 1920s Shanghai telling the story of how 10-year-old Sam Wing (future shop owner Mr. Wing in the original 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.
The 10-episode series will stream exclusively on the WarnerMedia streaming service.
