Fans have waited over three decades for a new Gremlins film, but they have excellent reason to be patient. Since 2013, rumors of a third Gremlins film have circulated in Hollywood. And despite Warner Bros. putting the project on pause, Columbus has been providing fans with updates on the upcoming horror film. Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai, a new television series that functions as a prequel to the original 1980s film, is also generating renewed interest in the franchise.
Therefore, Gremlins 3 is not a distant fantasy; it’s inevitable! In light of this, The Digital Fix has compiled all the pertinent information regarding the upcoming Mogwai concert. Here is everything we know about the prospective film, including the release date, personnel, and plot details.
Gremlins 3 Release Date Rumor
There is no stated release date for Gremlins 3, but we anticipate it will appear in 2025. We’re predicting 2025 because, for the first time in years, Gremlins 3 has a good possibility of going into production, owing to the recently released Max cartoon series Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai.
If Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai does well, it will put pressure on Warner Bros. to eventually release our trilogy. Director Chris Columbus already has a script for the upcoming film and told Collider in 2020 that rights difficulties are one of the main things holding off production for the time being.
“I’d love to do it.” There is an existing script because I wrote it. “Right now, we’re working out some rights issues, so we’re just trying to figure out when the best time would be to make that film,” he explained.
What is the Storyline for Gremlins 3?
The series concentrates on how Sam Wing, age 10, met Gizmo, a juvenile Mogwai. Sam and Gizmo undertake a perilous voyage through the Chinese countryside with an adolescent street thief named Elle, confronting and sometimes combating colorful creatures and spirits from Chinese folklore.
On their mission to return Gizmo to his family and unearth a legendary treasure, they are pursued by Riley Greene, a power-hungry industrialist, and his expanding legion of malevolent Gremlins. The series also explores how the deity Nuwa and her sibling Fuxi created the Mogwai.
Gremlins 3 Cast Rumors
Zach Galligan has been vocal about a possible Gremlins sequel, so we’re guessing he’ll be in Gremlins 3.
Galligan played Billy Peltzer in the previous two Gremlin films, so it seems logical that he’d return for the sequel. We’re also hoping that Phoebe Cates will reprise her role as Billy’s girlfriend, Kate Beringer. While Cates hasn’t been active in her acting profession since 2015, we’re still hoping for a comeback because she previously appeared in both Gremlin films.
Howie Mandel, who voiced Gizmo in the first monster film, might return, or we could see a TV series crossover with A. J. LoCascio (who voices the animal in Secrets of the Mogwai) instead.
To be honest, we’d bank on Mandel reprising his role as Gizmo because the future sequel will most likely be a sequel to Gremlins 2: The New Batch rather than a prequel like Secrets of the Mogwai.
The following actors are likely to appear in Gremlins 3:
- Billy Peltzer is played by Zach Galligan.
- Kate Beringer is played by Phoebe Cates.
- Gizmo is played by Howie Mandel.
All of this is just speculative on our part. We’ll keep you posted when cast announcements become available.
Is There a Gremlins 3 Trailer?
Gremlins 3 does not yet have a trailer, but we anticipate one in 2025 if the film is announced after Secrets of the Mogwai. Typically, teasers are released a few months prior to the release of a film.
Where Is It Possible to View Gremlins?
Gremlins, Gremlins 2, and Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai can be viewed online through Max in the United States and Now TV in the United Kingdom. The first two films are also available for purchase or rental on VOD platforms such as Amazon Prime Video and Apple TV.
Since Warner Bros. holds the rights to the Gremlins franchise, we assume that Gremlins 3 will also be available on its streaming service Max when it is released. Keep a watch on this page as additional news is on its way.
