A new set of "Smurfs: The Lost Village" have been released, making the excitement for the fantasy-adventure movie franchise build up even more. "Smurfs: The Lost Village" is the third installment of the franchise and while it may have been speculated as the final installment, producers have yet to confirm the issue.
What can fans expect from "Smurfs: The Lost Village" movie? According to Slash Film, the producers have tweaked the graphics in such a way that the characters and the overall effect of the film will not end up as a super modernized version of the classic. In fact, the graphics for the adorable blue creatures will reportedly be more similar to the original design from Pierre Culliford's comics, which were initially released in 1958.
In the past installments, the eyes of the Smurfs were big and well-defined, which, according to reviews, were quite scary and unpleasant looking for some kids. In this light, "Smurfs: The Lost Village" is expected to fare better in terms of profits and popularity than its predecessors. The upcoming movie is expected to follow Smurfette's journey to try to reach the Forbidden Forest before Gargamel does.
According to Screen Crush, "Smurfs: The Lost Village" might be considered as a movie where Smurfs are pitted against fellow Smurfs in the sense that Smurfette and her pals cross the line and defy Papa Smurf's instruction to stay in their village. Of course, without Smurfette's adventurous streak, there would be no third installment to the movie, so it is pretty much the pivotal point in the story.
"Smurfs: The Lost Village" is composed of a star-studded cast of voices including Julia Roberts as Leader Smurf Willow, Demi Lovato as Smurfette, Joe Manganiello as Hefty, Michelle Rodriguez as Smurfstorm and Ariel Winter as SmurfLily among others. Catch the premiere of "Smurfs: The Lost Village" on Apr. 7. Meanwhile, check out the trailer below and see Smurfette and the gang in action!
