Secrets Of The Mogwai Scores Two Marvel Stars

The animated series will follow future shop owner Sam Wing (voiced by Raya and the Last Dragon‘s Izaac Wang) during his childhood in China, where he meets Gizmo the mogwai (A.J. LoCascio) and the 12-year-old street thief Elle (Gabrielle Green). Together, they try to return Gizmo to his family and find the mystical mogwai treasure. However, along the way, they run into various monsters and spirits of Chinese folklore, all while being pursued by English industrialist and black magic practitioner Riley Greene (The Americans’ Matthew Rhys) and his gremlin army.

While the lead kids are voiced by young actors with shorter resumes, Sam’s family is full of familiar voices. Known for her roles in Mulan, The Mandalorian, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Ming-Na Wen will voice Sam’s protective mother, Fong Wing. Opposite her, voicing Sam’s skeptic dad Hon Wing, is BD Wong of Mulan, the Jurassic Park series, and Mr. Robot. Rounding out the family is the well-traveled Grandpa (who knows more about the mogwai than he lets on), voiced by James Hong. This makes the second time Hong has played the father of one of Ming-Na Wen’s characters — the first in an episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. — but he is widely known for his roles in Big Trouble in Little China, Kung Fu Panda, and Blade Runner.

Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai has no release date yet, but it will premiere exclusively on HBO Max.
