Remember those 2 Smurf films with Neil Patrick Harris? Well, this is not the third act of a Smurf trilogy. Sony is bringing back the little blue men (and Smurfette) but is plopping them in a new film with a new cast, new story that’s fully animated (say good bye to Hank Azaria’s live-action Gargamel). So in a way, this is a light reboot. Smurfboot?
The international trailer for Smurfs: The Lost Village shows Smurfette, Brainy, Clumsy and crew searching for a secret lost village, which can unlock the biggest secret in Smurf history. Does this “secret” has something to do with Smurfette, and how she’s the only female in Smurf village? (Admit it, that’s pretty weird) Or maybe it has to do with who spawned all the other smurfs? Well, Julia Roberts is voicing a new character, Smurf Willow, who wears a red hat just like Papa. It’s a wild guess, but she must be Mama Smurf. If not, well that’s some smurfing smurf.
Smurfs: The Lost Village hits theaters on April 7
