The strip-mining of the 1980s continues! A Gremlins animated series is coming to WarnerMedia’s unnamed streaming service. Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai follows Mr. Wing’s adventures as a 10-year-old with Gizmo in the 1920s. Seems like a solid premise, but will it suck? Time will tell.
Here’s the writeup…
“The animated TV adaptation, written by Tze Chun, tells the original story of the shop owner Mr. Wing character from the 1984 movie and its 1990 sequel, played by Keye Luke. Set in 1920s Shanghai, it reveals how 10-year-old Sam Wing 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 will be produced by Amblin Television in association with Warner Bros Animation, divisions of the movie franchise’s producers Warner Bros and Amblin Entertainment. The series is executive produced by Amblin TV’s Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey, Sam Register (Animaniacs), with Chun and Brendan Hay (Robot Chicken) serving as co-executive producers. Dan Krall (Coraline) is a supervising producer.
This is the second animated series for Amblin TV, which also has Animaniacs at Hulu.
Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai is part of a rampup at WarnerMedia, which has been greenlighting series ahead of the streaming platform’s launch.”
