Fans of Gremlins have been asking for Gremlins 3 for a long time. In fact, it’s been 25 years since Gremlins 2: The New Batch arrived, and it’s about time those little monsters made a comeback. Though there’s an animated series coming to HBO Max, that’s a prequel story, and fans want something new with the same style as the original. The good news is, if Gremlins 3 ever gets made, director Chris Columbus fully intends to do it with practical puppets and not computer generated visual effects. Read More »

Gremlins fans have been consistently disappointed by the lack of development on Gremlins 3. But they may still have something to look forward to with HBO Max’s upcoming animated series Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai.

That likely means Gremlins 3 is dead in the water, at least for now. However, writer Carl Ellsworth recently talked about his approach to the abandoned sequel. Read More »
