It seems there is quite a bit of news surrounding what I would call prime examples of films of the 1980s. And Gremlins would be another fine cinematic representation of the decade.
Writer Chris Columbus recently spoke on Collider Connected and while promoting his new Netflix film, The Christmas Chronicles: Part Two, He was asked about the potential of making Gremlins a trilogy. You can check out what he had to say below.
“I would love to do it. I wrote a script, so there is an existing script. We’re working out some rights issues right now, so we’re just trying to figure out when the best time to make that film would be. I would still do it the same way – I would do it as tangible puppets, not CGI. Maybe having — you know we had one stop-motion scene in the first Gremlins, but I don’t think I’d use much CGI in Gremlins 3.”
Agreed, I think it would be very fitting for the creatures to be practical and not computer-generated. Perhaps something along the lines of Baby Yoda. Hopefully, the rights issues can be worked out so that the franchise can be a trilogy. As well as giving fans another mogwai driven adventure.
While the sequel Gremlins: The New Batch didn’t quite capture the magic of the original film, it was still entertaining enough and allowed viewers to reconnect with the franchise and its characters. Namely, the fuzzy little ball of cuteness known as Gizmo. To hold fans over there is an animated project titled, Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai, is coming to HBO Max. Though the film currently does not have a release date.
