News has just broke that Gremlins 3 Is definitely happening! Fans of Gizmo, Billy and crew can rejoice at the news that a new Gremlins film will be made, and it's not a reboot of the classic movie. It will be a sequel to the original movies.
The Gremlins 1 and 2 have become iconic in the movie world. The classic movie features a cute little Mogwai called Gizmo, who is given as a pet to a young boy called Billy. The Mogwai are an unusual breed of animal and there are rules.
Rule 1) No bright lights especially sunlight!
Rule 2) Never feed them after midnight!
Rule 3) Never, Ever get them wet!
Ultimately in this movie, the rules are broken, well rule 2 and 3 are, and chaos ensues in a small little town that it's taken over by sinister versions of the Mogwai called Gremlins!
In the second movie Billy has moved to New York with his girlfriend, played by Pheobe Cates, and they have jobs and are settling down in life. However, the owner of Gizmo dies and Billy then has Gizmo back under his care , where, the inevitable happens. The Mogwai reproduce and eat after midnight becoming Gremlins again and causing havoc in the centre that Billy and his girlfriend work in.
According to Zach Galligans who spoke at London's Prince Charles Cinema during a screening of the 1984 original said:
It's not going to be a reboot. It will not be a remake in any way, shape, or form.
Chris Columbus has come out ans said that the first film is very near and dear to his heart and as long as he is alive it will never be remade
So the only thing they will be-and apparently are going to be doing- is something along the lines of like Jurassic World, where it will be 30 years later.
This brings up many questions that fans would want answered. Such as could Gizmo return 30 years later? We don't know how Mogwai age, so it is possible he would make a return.
Would Zach Galligans return as Billy?
Would Gizmo return or would there be new mogwai?
Would Pheobe Cates return as Katie, Billy's girlfriend?
When asked about a possible return the actor said:
I swear on my life, I don't know if i'm in it or not, but I think there is probably a decent chance since I'm one of the few people left standing from the first movie.
Regardless of whether Billy and Gizmo returns I am thrilled-as I am sure many of you are- that there IS going to be a Gremlins 3!
I will let you know more when it is released.
