Official Trailer Arrives for ‘Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai’

Nearly one month after the teaser for Max’s launch series, “Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai,” the streaming service has debuted the official trailer for the new animated series inspired by the iconic film “Gremlins.”

“Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai” will premiere on Tuesday, May 23, on Max. The animated series takes viewers back to 1920s Shanghai, where the Wing family first meets the young Mogwai called Gizmo. Sam Wing (future shop owner Mr. Wing in the 1984 “Gremlins” film) accepts the dangerous task to take Gizmo home and embarks on a journey through the Chinese countryside. Sam and Gizmo are joined by a teenage street thief named Elle, and together, they encounter—and sometimes battle—colorful monsters and spirits from Chinese folklore. Along their quest, they are pursued by a power-hungry industrialist and his growing army of evil Gremlins.

The series features an all-star voice cast that includes Ming-Na Wen, James Hong, BD Wong, Matthew Rhys, Izaac Wang, and Gabrielle Neveah Green. The series will also feature notable guest stars, including Zach Galligan, who starred as the hero “Billy Peltzer” in Amblin’s original “Gremlins” films. Additional guest voices include Sandra Oh, Randall Park, George Takei, and Bowen Yang.
