Brand-new trailer and clips from Sony’s forthcoming Smurf adventure showcase exotic, bioluminescent flora and fauna, and a tribe of kick-ass, suspiciously Smurf-like natives.
Sony Pictures Animation has unveiled a brand-new trailer and three new clips from its forthcoming Smurf adventure, Smurfs: The Lost Village.
In this all-new take on the Smurfs, 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.
The new trailer lays out the film’s plot as the group launches an expedition to a land filled with exotic, bioluminescent flora and fauna, and a tribe of kick-ass, suspiciously Smurf-like natives. As Hefty Smurf puts it, “It’s like a workout for your eyes!”
Smurfs: The Lost Village features the voices of Demi Lovato as Smurfette, Rainn Wilson as Gargamel and Mandy Patinkin as Papa Smurf, alongside triple Emmy nominee Jack McBrayer (30 Rock, Wreck-It Ralph) as the sweet, awkward and honest-to-a-fault Clumsy, who’s forever trying his best and missing the mark; Danny Pudi (Community) as book smart and geek proud Brainy, who’s long on knowledge, but short on inter-Smurf-onal skills; and Joe Manganiello (True Blood, Magic Mike) as the strong and super-positive Hefty, a loyal dynamo struggling with his hero complex.
Here’s the official synopsis:
It seems to Smurfette that everyone else in the Village has a purpose -- Papa Smurf (leading), Baker Smurf (baking), even Grouchy Smurf (grouching) -- except for her. So what’s the only girl in the village to do? Go in search of hers, of course! When she accidentally crosses paths with a mysterious creature that takes off into the Enchanted Forest, she follows, and sets off into the uncharted and strictly forbidden woods. Joined by her brothers Brainy, Hefty and Clumsy -- and with the evil wizard Gargamel shadowing their every step - Team Smurf undertakes a wild journey full of action, danger and discovery, setting them on a course that leads to the biggest mystery in Smurf history!
The newest entry in the Columbia Pictures movie franchise that has grossed more than $900 million globally, Smurfs: The Lost Village is set for a worldwide release on March 31, 2017. The fully-animated return to the tone and style of the beloved comic book creations of Peyo is directed by Kelly Asbury (Shrek 2, Gnomeo & Juliet), produced by Jordan Kerner (Charlotte’s Web, The Smurfs), co-produced by Mary Ellen Bauder (Hotel Transylvania), and executive produced by Raja Gosnell and Ben Waisbren.
