SDCC 2022: Gremlins: Secrets Of The Mogwai adds Zack Galligan to its cast | TV series
Among the many projects announced or updated at this year’s Comic-Con were news about Gremlins anime prequel series Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai. We knew the series was in the works, but showrunner Tze Chun used the panel to announce that Zach Galligan – AKA Gremlins‘ Billy Peltzer – is part of the voice cast.
Galligan won’t play Peltzer, however; since the series is set in the past, this is an entirely new character that he declined to name during the panel.
Other new recruits include Sandra Oh, Randall Park, George Takei and Bowen Yang, while the voices of Mogwai Gizmo, meanwhile, will be provided here by AJ LoCascio. They join Ming-Na Wen, James Hong, BD Wong and Izaac Wang, who were previously announced.
This new show takes the clock back to 1920s Shanghai to explain how 10-year-old Sam Wing (seen in his later years as a shop owner, Mr. Wing in the 1984 film) first crossed paths with a certain young Mogwai. Sam and Gizmo will embark on a journey through the Chinese countryside, encountering colorful monsters and spirits from Chinese folklore.
As they attempt to return Gizmo to his family and uncover a legendary treasure, they must face off against a power-hungry industrialist and his ever-growing army of evil Gremlins.
Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai will hit TV screens next year.
