Zach Galligan, the interpreter of Billy in the Gremlins films, joins the voice cast of the animated series Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai.
Zach Galliganwho played the role of Billy Peltzer in the films Gremlinswill have a recurring guest role on the HBO Max animated series, Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai. The comedian told Comic-Con: ‘I can’t say too much, but because it’s 1920s China, I don’t play Billy because he wasn’t there. So I play this cool character. It was really fun and amazing to work with a new group of creatives taking a fresh look at the franchise and expanding the mythology – who knows what they’ll add. Maybe they’ll add a new transformation or a new rule that we don’t know yet…I think Gremlins fans are in for a treat.‘
