It’s hard to believe that The Smurfs first came out in the comics in 1958. Anyone who’s read those might recognize something in the new Smurfs: The Lost Village trailer that just dropped today. The director of the animated movie Kelly Asbury (Shrek 2) wanted to bring the original comic book look to the big screen. This will be The Smurfs third time in the live-action world and Asbury appears to be pulling out all the stops.
The first two live-action films fared well abroad but didn’t do that well here in the U.S. The new Lost Village trailer seems a big more upbeat and the animation is top notch. I’ll let my son be the judge of it all.
Full description below:
In the film, a ragtag team of Smurfs — Smurfette (Demi Lovato), Hefty (Joe Manganiello), Clumsy (Jack McBrayer), Brainy (Danny Pudi), and Papa Smurf (Mandy Patinkin) — try to reach the Forbidden Forrest before Gargamel (Rainn Wilson) does. Leader SmurfWillow’s (Julia Roberts) newly discovered village contains something the evil wizard wants. Smurfette’s journey — it mostly looks like her story — also involves SmurfStorm (Michelle Rodriguez), SmurfBlossom (Ellie Kemper), and SmurfLily (Ariel Winter).
