Gremlins 3

Hey, do you remember those Gremlins? Those little monsters that would wreak havoc if you didn’t follow the three basic rules: don’t get them wet, keep them away from light, and don’t feed them after midnight. So, what were the Gremlins before they turned all evil? They’re mythical creatures with a malicious nature, popular in English-speaking traditions and probably emerging in the early 15th century. Bet you had a blast with their adventures in the two movies from the ’80s. Well, good news for Gremlins fans: Gremlins 3 might be closer than you think. In this article, we spill all we know about this possible sequel that’s been in the works for years.

What’s the word from the creator about Gremlins 3?

Chris Columbus, the creator of Gremlins, is the guy behind it all. He wrote the first movie and produced the second. He’s also known for directing other famous films like Home Alone, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, and Mrs. Doubtfire. Columbus has mentioned multiple times that he’d love to make Gremlins 3 and even has a script ready. But, there have been some hurdles, like copyright issues and a lack of funding. Columbus is clear: he doesn’t want a remake or a reboot, but a continuation of the original story with the same characters and that mix of comedy and horror.

What can we expect?

Though there aren’t many details about the Gremlins 3 plot, Columbus has dropped some hints about what might go down. He mentioned that Gizmo, the adorable mogwai who’s the source of all the gremlin chaos, would be the main character again. He also spilled that the movie would tackle the question of whether Gizmo should die to prevent more gremlins from popping up, creating a moral dilemma for the humans. Plus, he promised the film would stick to the style of the previous ones, using puppets and animatronics instead of digital effects. That way, they’d keep the charm and nostalgia of the classic gremlins.

When’s Gremlins 3 hitting the screens?

That’s the million-dollar question, and the answer is, we don’t know. Gremlins 3 has been in the works for years, and there’s no official release date or confirmation that it’s happening. What we do have is an animated series called Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai, which dropped in 2022 on HBO Max. It’s a prequel to the movies, set in 1920s China, exploring the origin of Gizmo and his connection with Billy’s grandfather. What breed is Gizmo from Gremlins? He’s a mogwai. The series has 10 episodes and features Ming-Na Wen as Billy’s mom.
