Smurfs break the fourth wall in the trailer for The Lost Village
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette (Demi Lovato) and her best friends Brainy (Danny Pudi), Clumsy (Jack McBrayer) and Hefty (Joe Manganiello) 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 (Rainn Wilson) does. Embarking on a roller-coaster journey full of action and danger, the Smurfs are on a course that leads to the discovery of the biggest secret in Smurf history!
The general consensus seems to be, "Well, at least it's not live-action." I suppose there's not much else to say at this point, except that it looks like your typical older-licensed film, aiming to appeal to a younger generation. I have no great love for Smurfs so I'll wait and see a proper trailer before lighting my torch and Smurfin' things up.
SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE will hit theaters on April 7, 2017.
