Brace yourself: It's time to Get Smurfy with Rainn Wilson and Mandy Patinkin
Did you know that today is Global Smurfs Day? I'm not even smurfin' around with you. Global Smurfs Day was a worldwide event held on June 25, 2011 to celebrate the release of The Smurfs movie. Evidently some people dressed up and . . . well, that's pretty much it. I'm not sure what you're supposed to do on that day, but I guess announcements are a big deal. Smurf Day 2015 will forever (yeah) be remember as the day GET SMURFY was announced. That's right! A brand new completed (computer) animated Smurf movie featuring the acting talents of Rainn Wilson as Gargamel, Mandy Patinkin as Papa Smurf and Demo Lovato as Smurfette. Oh boy.
Every show or movie has its die-hard fans, so you gotta wonder how many die-hard Smurf fans are out there right now, just like, "F*cking' yes!" after hearing this news. Maybe not. I can't say I was all that much into Smurfs, even as a kid, but given I'm not the target demographic, what do I know? At least Rainn Wilson seems to be having some fun with this.
GET SMURFY will be released in the Spring of 2017.
Katy Perry voiced Smurfette in the live-action flicks. I don't know why, but I miss her.
