Smurfs: The Lost Village Review

Smurfs: The Lost Village | Sony Pictures Home Entertainment

The kids and I recently watched Smurfs: The Lost Village. My younger kids loved it and thought it was funny and entertaining. I thought the new Smurfs movie was OK. The main reason I didn’t enjoy it more is because until I watched it, I didn’t know it was a fully animated film (no live action). The third installment is related to the second Smurfs movie, but humans are not in the film. The story takes place completely in the Smurfs world, which is a shame because I liked the Patrick and Grace characters in the first two Smurfs films. But if you or your kids like animated films or Smurfs, then you’ll enjoy the latest Smurfs movie. Smurfs: The Lost Village, which is rated PG, is available now in 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and digital HD.

Why is There Only One Girl Smurf?

Ever wonder why all the Smurfs except for Smurfette are guys? In the previous Smurfs movie, Gargamel created Smurfette — the only female Smurf I’ve ever seen. In the new Smurfs film, you’ll find out why Smurfette is the only girl Smurf in the movie series. In the new story Smurfette, Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty journey to the Forbidden Forest. There they discover the biggest secret in Smurf history. Meanwhile, Gargamel discovers the secret too and is up to no good as usual.

Bye Bye Katy Perry, Hello Demi Lovato

In this third installment of the Smurfs series, Demi Lovato joins the cast as the new voice of Smurfette. Actually, from what I can tell, it appears the entire cast is new. The new animated Smurfs film features the voices of Rainn Wilson (Gargamel), Joe Manganiello (Hefty Smurf), Jack McBrayer (Clumsy Smurf), Danny Pudi (Brainy Smurf), Mandy Patinkin (Papa Smurf), Dee Bradley Baker (Monty), Frank Welker (Azrael), Michelle Rodriguez (Smurf Storm), Ellie Kemper (Smurf Blossom), Julia Roberts (Smurf Willow), Ariel Winter (Smurf Lily), Meghan Trainor (Smurf Melody), Bret Marnell (Snappy Bug / Handy Smurf), and Brandon Jeffords (Cauldron). Smurfs: The Lost Village was directed by Kelly Asbury (Shrek 2).
