Synopsis arrives for animated series Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai

July 6th, 2019 by Marc Comments

So remember in February I reported a Gremlins animated series was in the works? No, well it was here.

Anyway, Now I have am official synopsis and title for you.

Well, the title you probably already got from the image above, it’s Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai and it’s from Warner Brothers and has a ten-episode order (for now).

Here’s the details”

Set in 1920s Shanghai, the series will tell the story of 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.

Tze Chun will write the series and serve as co-executive producer. Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey of Amblin Television will executive produce along with Sam Register. Brendan Hay will also co-executive produce with Dan Krall serving as supervising producer.

Amblin produces in association with Warner Bros. Animation.

Honestly, to me this is like the Jurassic World animated series in so far as I like the movies but have no desire for this… but I’ll be watching anyway. Who knows, it could be good.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
