Smurfs: The Lost Village, previously known as Get Smurfy, is an upcoming American 3D computer-animated adventure-comedy film directed by Kelly Asbury. It is based primarily on The Smurfs comic book series created by the Belgian comics artist Peyo, and is a total reboot film, completely unrelated to Sony’s live-action/animated film series. The film stars Demi Lovato as Smurfette, Mandy Patinkin as Papa Smurf, Jack McBrayer as Clumsy Smurf, Danny Pudi as Brainy Smurf, Joe Manganiello as Hefty Smurf and Rainn Wilson as Gargamel. The film is set for an April 7, 2017 release.
Smurfette attempts to find her purpose in the village. When she encounters a creature in the Enchanted Forest, she sets off on an adventure.
On May 10, 2012, just two weeks after they announced production of The Smurfs 2, Sony Pictures Animation and Columbia Pictures were already developing a script for The Smurfs 3 with scribes Karey Kirkpatrick and Chris Poche. Hank Azaria, who played Gargamel in the first two movies, revealed that the third film “might actually deal with the genuine origin of how all these characters ran into each other way back when.” Unlike the first two live action/computer-animated hybrid films, the third film will be entirely computer-animated and won’t be a sequel.
