The Gremlins concept was originally created and written by Chris Columbus. His story was bought by Steven Spielberg, who had it turned into a script. Joe Dante was put to direct a Gremlins movie, and was given creative control.

Wiki article layout guidelines Introduction focuses on film content. Brief mentions of alternate content can be included (Please indicate from which writer, or its source).
Gremlins

  • Spielberg/Dante's film content

Gremlins 2

  • Haas/Dante's film content

Trivia

  • Chris Columbus content
  • George Pipe's
    novelization content
    (or an entirely separate article)

George Pipe was asked to create the novelization of Gremlins. Both the movie and the novel were released in 1984. However, Pipe deviated from source material and created an extraterrestrial origins story for the Mogwai. Joe Dante does not consider Pipe’s novel adaption as canon.

The extraterrestrial origins story is exclusively attributed to George Pipe. The original concept by Chris Columbus draws more toward Chinese mythology, exploring more darker tones. Steven Spielberg developed Gremlins to have a lighter mood that would make it more marketable. Joe Dante follows Chris Columbus' script under Spielberg's umbrella, connecting WWII gremlin legends. Joe Dante does not consider Pipe’s extraterrestrial exposé novelization to be canon.

Gremlins Wiki layout. As of 2018, the articles’ tone should capture Spielberg's lighter mood. The Trivia section at the bottom of each page, is where George Pipe's extraterrestrial extravaganza and Chris Columbus dark corners should be. Because Gremlins was originally created by Chris Columbus, additional footnotes and side-notes are encouraged on articles, where appropriate. If there is more interest in Pipe's extraterrestrials, a separate article should be created, dedicated only to the novel's concepts.
