GREMLINS: SECRETS OF THE MOGWAI Animated Prequel Series Adds Ming-Na Wen, BD Wong & Matthew Rhys

It's been a while since we had any updates on Secrets of the Mogwai, but the Gremlins animated prequel series coming to HBO Max has now added Ming-Na Wen, BD Wong & Matthew Rhys to its voice cast.

We first reported on Warner Bros.' plans to develop a Gremlins animated prequel series for HBO Max back in 2018, and the show has now added some big-name talent to its voice cast.

Ming-Na Wen (Agent’s of S.H.I.E.L.D, The Mandalorian) will play young Sam Wing's (the store owner played by Keye Luke in the movies) mother Fong Wing, who is described as a doctor of Chinese medicine who is “resourceful, slyly funny and fiercely protective of her family.”

BD Wong (Mr. Robot, Jurassic World) will provide the voice of her husband Hon, who is characterized as a “calm rock” that has “never believed his father-in-law’s tales of magic and adventure.”

James Hong (Big Trouble in Little China) will play Grandpa, and Matthew Rhys (The Americans, Perry Mason) is on board as the villainous Riley Greene, "a power-hungry English industrialist and treasure hunter who wields black magic that is determined to stop at nothing in his pursuit of Gizmo and the mythical treasure of the Mogwai."

Gizmo will be voiced by A.J. LoCascio (Voltron: Legendary Defender).

Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai will be set long before the events of the '80s classic in 1920s Shanghai. The 10-episode season "reveals the story of how naïve 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."

If you're looking for a Gizmo fix before the show airs, the furry little fella recently appeared alongside Billy Peltzer himself (Zach Galligan) in a new Mountain Dew advert.
