Concept art from Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai revealed and it’s beautiful

October 30th, 2020 by Marc Comments

We’ve known for a while that HBO Max were developing a prequel animated Gremlins series and now we have our first look and it’s really rather gorgeous.

The series, which has original Gremlins director Joe Dante as a consultant, is called Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai and now showrunner Tze Chun has shared an early look at concept art from the series.

The images features Wing –  the old shop owner who had Gizmo at the start of the first movie but now as a young boy – with Gizmo (or whatever he’ll be called here) in the streets of Shanghai in the 1920s where the series is set, long before Randall Peltzer (Hoyt Axton) bought Gizmo for his son on Christmas of 1984.

The art is pure Pixar and, hopefully, will represent the final art in the series itself because if it looks this good it has my signed up already.

What do you all think? Let me know…

No word on when the series will air but we’ll keep you up-to-date as and when news breaks.

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….
