A mysterious map. An intrigued Smurfette. A long-held secret. Smurf-munching flowers. A collapsing rope bridge. Tight white pants. Here’s the first full trailer for Smurfs: The Lost Village, Sony Pictures Animation’s reboot of the venerable blue man (and one woman) group. Their latest adventure takes the Smurfs on a race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a lost village before the evil wizard Gargamel does. Will it all lead to the biggest secret in Smurf history?
After two movies since 2011, the latest take on the property — which started out with a Belgian comic book and exploded with the 1980s animated TV series — features a new voice cast. It’s led by Demi Lovato (Smurfette), Rainn Wilson (Gargamel), Joe Manganiello (Hefty), Jack McBrayer (Clumsy), Danny Pudi (Brainy) and Mandy Patinkin (Papa Smurf).
Kelly Asbury directs the toon, from a script by Stacey Harman and Pamela Ribon. Jordan Kerner and Mary Ellen Bauder Andrews are the producers. Columbia Pictures unleashes the pic in 3D on April 7.
