First Teaser for Sony's New 'Smurfs' Reboot 'Smurfs: The Lost Village'
"Is this is the Lost Village?" The little blue guys are back… again. Sony has debuted the first teaser trailer for the new Smurfs movie titled Smurfs: The Lost Village. After two mediocre live-action hybrid movies starring Hank Azaria and Neil Patrick Harris, the studio has decided to reboot and try a fully-CG-animated movie. Smurfs: The Lost Village features the voices of Mandy Patinkin as Papa Smurf, Rainn Wilson as Gargamel, Joe Manganiello as Hefty, Demi Lovato as Smurfette, Jack McBrayer as Clumsy, Danny Pudi as Brainy. As indicated by the title, this new adventure takes them to a long lost village where they are said to discover "the biggest secret in Smurf history." What a pitch. This teaser is mostly a re-introduction.
Here's the first teaser trailer (+ poster) for Kelly Asbury's Smurfs: The Lost Village, from YouTube:
A mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil wizard Gargamel does. Embarking on a rollercoaster journey full of action and danger, the Smurfs are on a course that leads to the discovery of the biggest secret in Smurf history!
