Wait, there's a sequel to The Smurfs? They were surprised too. Here's the teaser trailer.
I must have blocked this out of my mind. A new teaser for THE SMURFS 2 has landed on Facebook. Even the little Smurfy in the clip is having some trouble remembering that a sequel was made.
On a positive note, I do know some parents who told me that their kids really enjoyed the first movie. I watched the cartoon from the 80s every now and then as a kid. There was always the issue of one Smurf girl character, but I was too young to really care. All I knew is that there was one that had glasses like me, except that he used to whine all the time. All I can say is that this isn't really one for me.
The second installment takes the THE SMURFS to Paris on the search for Smurfette. Gargamel has kidnapped her for the Smurf essence. Ewwwww.
The Smurfs team up with their human friends to rescue Smurfette, who has been kidnapped by Gargamel since she knows a secret spell that can turn the evil sorcerer's newest creation - creatures called the Naughties - into real Smurfs.
THE SMURFS 2 is due to release in theaters on July 31, 2013.
