‘Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai’ Cast Revealed

by | May 17, 2022

Whilst we are still waiting for Warner Brothers to drop us third film in the Gremlins franchise, HBO Max has pushed ahead with it’s own chapter in the saga, in the form of a prequel animated TV show Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai. Whilst the show has yet to have an air date, this week, we were treated to the shows cast reveal, where we have learnt just who is going to be in the show. 

The animated series follows the The close-knit family Wing family, where 10-year-old Sam Wing (The future shop owner Mr. Wing from the 1984 Gremlins movie) meets the young Mogwai called Gizmo, and attempts to get him; where we can only assume he learns the three important lessons about Mogwai. 

The official synopsis reads:

“Steeped in China’s rich culture and mythology, Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai takes viewers back to 1920s Shanghai where the Wing family first discovers the mysterious creature. Sam Wing, the youngest in the family, accepts the dangerous task to take Gizmo home and embarks on a journey through the Chinese countryside. Sam and Gizmo are joined by a teenage street thief named Elle, and together, they encounter—and sometimes battle—colorful monsters and spirits from Chinese folklore. Along their quest, they are pursued by a power-hungry industrialist and his growing army of evil Gremlins.”

The cast is as follows…

Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai - Horror Land
  • Fong Wing (voiced by Ming-Na Wen) — Fong Wing is Sam’s mother and a doctor of Chinese medicine. She’s resourceful, slyly funny, and fiercely protective of her family, even her frequently troublesome father.  She’ll do anything to aid and protect her son.
Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai - Horror Land
  • Grandpa (voiced by James Hong) — A free spirit and self-proclaimed expert in Chinese myth and magic, Grandpa is the elder of the Wing family. He claims to have traveled the world on grand adventures, but nobody really believed him… until now. He alone knows the true power (and secrets) of the Mogwai and the importance of protecting them.
Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai - Horror Land
  • Hon Wing (voiced by BD Wong) — Hon Wing is Sam’s father and the family’s calm rock. He’s never believed his father-in-law’s tales of magic and adventure. But when he and Fong become separated from Sam, he realizes the world is stranger than he thought, and that he’ll need to become braver to reunite his family.
Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai - Horror Land
  • Sam Wing (voiced by Izaac Wang) — Sam Wing is a naïve 10-year-old boy who will one day become Mr. Wing, the mysterious shopkeep and Gizmo’s guardian in the original Gremlins films. Young Sam lives with his family in the tiny apartment behind their struggling medicine shop. Sheltered and cautious, Sam will be thrown into the adventure of a lifetime when he promises his Grandpa he’ll get Gizmo home.
