HBO Max’s Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai premieres in late 2021. And today, Gremlins franchise star Zach Galligan teases the new series could lead to another live-action movie aka Gremlins 3.
He tells SyFyWire: “It seems like what they’re going to do is re-educate us on the mythology surrounding Gremlins and Gizmo and Mogwai and, of course, most importantly, the three nebulous rules,” Galligan says. “You have to figure that they’re using the animated series as a stepping stone to the larger endgame, which is a live-action Gremlins movie. That would be my assumption, and it’s really not that much of a stretch to think that that’s what they’re doing.”
He adds: “The only key mistake that they could make, and I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t make this, is the notion that my character would break the rules for a third time. My guess is that Gizmo would either have to be taken away from me and someone else would have to break the three rules because they were unaware of them, and I would be the one going, ‘No, no, you must follow them!’ Or, another Mogwai is found and people know nothing about it, so, therefore, they break all the rules and then I have to fix it. Who you gonna call? Gremlin-busters.”
