REVIEW OF SMURFS THE LOST VILLAGE (2017)
Smurfs: The Lost Village is an upcoming 2017 American 3D computer-animated adventure comedy movie produced by Sony Pictures Animation and animated by Sony Pictures Imageworks. It is based on The Smurfs comic book series created by the Belgian comics artist Peyo and is a reboot movie, unrelated to Sony’s live-action/animated film series. Written by Stacey Harman and Pamela Ribon, it is being directed by Kelly Asbury.
The movie stars Demi Lovato as Smurfette, Mandy Patinkin as Papa Smurf, Jack McBrayer as Clumsy Smurf, Danny Pudi as Brainy Smurf, Joe Manganiello as Hefty Smuf, and Rainn Wilson as Gargamel. In the story, a mysterious map prompts Smurfette, Brainy, Clumsy, and Hefty to find a lost village, inhabited by SmurfStorm (voiced by Michelle Rodriguez), SmurfBlossom (Ellie Kemper), SmurfLily, (Ariel Winter) SmurfWillow (Julia Roberts), and much more, before Gargamel does. The film is set for an April 7, 2017, release.
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurf, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty 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 does. Embarking on a rollercoaster journey full of action and danger, the Smurfs are on a course that leads to the discovery of the biggest secret in Smurf history!

So this one has been getting some good buzz about being more faithful and less annoying. That’s good, I never grew up with the Smurfs but I hope they can make a good movie that attracts new audiences and also makes fans of the original happy
Sony itself has declared that it will be nothing like the past films, in fact, it’s a reboot, then again Sony said TASM will be the definitive Spider-Man and look how that turned out, Marvel managed to do that it only 15 minutes.
