WarnerMedia has ordered "Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai," a 10-episode, half-hour prequel to original "Gremlins."

In the animated television adaptation, we travel back to 1920s Shanghai to reveal the story of how 10-year-old Sam Wing (future shop owner Mr. Wing in the 1984 movie) 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.

"Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai" will be produced by Amblin Television in association with Warner Bros. Animation. The series will be written by Tze Chun and executive produced by Darryl Frank ("The Americans, "Animaniacs," "Amazing Stories"), Justin Falvey ("The Americans," "Animaniacs," "Amazing Stories") and Sam Register ("Teen Titans Go!" and the upcoming series "Animaniacs") with Chun and Brendan Hay ("Dawn of the Croods," "Robot Chicken") serving as co-EP. Dan Krall ("Coraline," "Scooby-Doo!") will serve as supervising producer.

This feels like a me too moment for Gremlins after Dark Crystal decided to do a prequel series on netflix. But the animated route seems cheap and won't mesh with the Gremlins movies.

Gremlins has been sexually harassing The Dark Crystal?

Would rather have this as live action.

Im very intrigued and excited about this. I just hope its done well. I just hope its in a style thats not like every other g'd cartoon out for kids now. Be original or just be interesting and not samey like every other show on right now.

You can pretty much count on the animation being blobby like Rick and Morty, Adventure Time, Steven Universe, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Final Space...

I am only okay with this if Howie Mandel is voicing Gizmo again.
