A Gremlins animated series is in development for WarnerMedia's as-yet-unnamed upcoming streaming service, according to Variety.

Based on the hit 1980s film franchise by writer Chris Columbus and director Joe Dante, this new Gremlins cartoon will reportedly focus on Mr. Wing - the character who owned Gizmo at the beginning of the first film - when he was a young man, living with the Mogwai.
