The first trailer has been shared for the highly anticipated animated series Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai, and it looks like an adorable, fun, and mischievous adventure series!

Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai is a period piece set in 1920s Shanghai, “the series reveals how a 10-year-old Sam Wing – who becomes the future shop owner Mr. Wing in the 1984 movie – met the young Mogwai called Gizmo. They strike up a lifelong friendship as Wing attempts to return Gizmo to his family, encountering and sometimes battling colorful monsters and spirits from Chinese folklore. Meanwhile, the two and street thief Elle are pursued by a power-hungry industrialist and his growing army of evil Gremlins.”

The half-hour animated series comes from WB Animation and Amblin TV and both Steven Speilberg and Joe Dante are executive producers on the project along with Sam Register, President, Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios.

The series voice cast includes Ming-Na Wen (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.DThe MandalorianMulan), James Hong (Big Trouble in Little ChinaBlade RunnerMulan), BD Wong (Mr. RobotJurassic World ), and Izaac Wang.

Fong Wing (voiced by Ming-Na Wen)—Fong Wing is Sam’s mother and a doctor of Chinese medicine. She’s resourceful, slyly funny, and fiercely protective of her family, even her frequently troublesome father.  She’ll do anything to aid and protect her son.

Grandpa (voiced by James Hong)—A free spirit and self-proclaimed expert in Chinese myth and magic, Grandpa is the elder of the Wing family. He claims to have traveled the world on grand adventures, but nobody really believed him… until now. He alone knows the true power (and secrets) of the Mogwai and the importance of protecting them.

Hon Wing (voiced by BD Wong)—Hon Wing is Sam’s father and the family’s calm rock. He’s never believed his father-in-law’s tales of magic and adventure. But when he and Fong become separated from Sam, he realizes the world is stranger than he thought, and that he’ll need to become braver to reunite his family.

Sam Wing (voiced by Izaac Wang)—Sam Wing is a naïve 10-year-old boy who will one day become Mr. Wing, the mysterious shopkeep and Gizmo’s guardian in the original Gremlins films. Young Sam lives with his family in the tiny apartment behind their struggling medicine shop. Sheltered and cautious, Sam will be thrown into the adventure of a lifetime when he promises his Grandpa he’ll get Gizmo home.

Tze Chun serves as showrunner and executive producer and the series is set to premiere on Max on May 23, 2023.
