Gremlins: Secrets Of The Mogwai – Trailer Talk

gremlins: Secrets Of The Mogwai

Despite the two films grossing over $254million worldwide in total, a third film in the ‘Gremlins’ franchise has been in production hell for decades. But the threequel will finally appear…as a prequel animated series.

Executive produced by original director Joe Dante (Gremlins, Gremlins 2: The New Batch, Small Soldiers) ‘Gremlins: Secrets Of The Mogwai’ follows a young Sam Wing as he discovers a Mogwai in China. But he soon discovers the consequences that come with not following the three rules.

While an animated show is surprising, it looks interesting. The show will explore Sam Wing, the shopkeeper who sold Gizmo in the first film, and his first encounter with a Mogwai. I think the idea of a prequel is interesting, especially since the novelization of the original film also explored the creature’s origins; it’s great to see the story come to the small screen finally. 

However, while the animated shading looks nice, the animation style looks basic and reminiscent of a children’s show; it’s a very simplistic-looking style. Gizmo looks adorable in this format, but the gremlins themselves don’t look very threatening. And, considering the original was classed as a horror film in the UK, this is an interesting choice. But, if the show has a similar tone to the films, ‘Secrets of the Mogwai’ could work.

With Joe Dante on board, ‘Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai’ looks interesting, and the idea of a prequel is intriguing. But it is a strange way for the franchise to continue, and I am wary of its quality. Hopefully, this show will serve as a gateway to another ‘Gremlins’ film.
