The Smurfs 2

If you watched the live-action/CGI hybrid adaptation of The Smurfs and thought you wanted some tiny creatures who were a little less blue, then this first look at The Smurfs 2 has just what the doctor ordered. The sequel arrives next summer on July 31st, 2013, and EW has a first look at two new villainous creatures in the form of The Naughties, little monsters named Vexy (Christina Ricci) and Hackus (JB Smoove) who give The Smurfs trouble. Director Raja Gosnell, back for the sequel, says, "They’re not bad, they’re misguided. They’re just products of their upbringing. And they haven’t had the best upbringing.”

Here's our first look at The Naughties in Raja Gosnell's The Smurfs 2 via EW:

The Smurfs 2 - First Look - The Naughties

The Naughties are basically a gray version of The Smurfs which comes from original lore of the creatures. Gosnell explained, "Smurfette was a lump of clay that Gargamel put in his cauldron and he painted her blue as a disguise. Using that as a jumping off point, our Naughties are basically clay gray.” Hank Azaria is back as Gargamel who finds himself using "his wizarding powers to become a hit entertainer in Paris, where he hopes to use the Eiffel Tower as an energy-generating antenna that will allow him to return home." The Naughties will somehow help him do that, but they're not exactly straight up bad guys. You'll have to wait and see how that plays out when the sequel, which also sees Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays back with a child of their own, hits theaters next summer. Thoughts?

      "Their own piracy" not "they're own piracy".Unless you are trying to say that they are their own piracy. Grammar nazi out.

      Trolls 2 has a much higher entertainment value.
