What in the smurf! ‘The Smurfs‘ have a movie trailer out now and it couldn’t be at a better time. When the closest thing to blue has been those freaking annoying Navi from ‘Avatar’ it’s a godsend to see these little blue wonders. I got raised on these creatures since I was more then 3 apples high and seeing them right now, even if it’s trailer, just makes a grown man giddy. Coming from Sony pictures the film mixes live action and animation, starring a cast of human and vocal talent. The younger kids might not know what the smurfs are, but this updated CGI version takes our friends out of the forest and into the city, New York city.
Check out the trailer below:
Starring a plethora of talent it features Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays as they lives are turned upside down when the Smurfs fall from their magical world into ours with evil wizard Gargamel (Hank Azaria) on their tails.
When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village, they tumble from their magical world and into ours — in fact, smack dab in the middle of Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down.
The voice talent isn’t too shabby either:
Jonathan Winters as Papa Smurf, George Lopez as Grouchy Smurf, Katy Perry as Smurfette, Alan Cumming as Gutsy Smurf, Fred Armisen as Brainy Smurf, Anton Yelchin (Star Trek, Terminator Salvation) as Clumsy Smurf, Paul Reubens as Jokey Smurf, John Oliver as Vanity Smurf; Saturday Night Live‘s Kenan Thompson as Greedy Smurf, The Office’s B.J. Novak as Baker Smurf; and comedian Jeff Foxworthy as Handy Smurf.
As long as nobody hears a “You might be a Smurf…” joke everyone should be fine.
