Yes, I admit that I’m in my 50s, which makes the new Smurf movie, Smurfs The Lost Village, even more of a hoot to me. The
Smurfs were an animated television series that aired on NBC from September 12, 1981, to December 2, 1989. My second admission is I only caught the show a few times, just for pop culture references, but I thought they were adorable for some weird reason. I even had some of these figurines in the 1980s (left).
Now of course, there’s nothing you can see on a film tour in regards to the Smurfs, so the movie will have to do. And if you know me, you know I’m going to be writing about film/tv/travel. This is one of those times where, if you were a fan years ago, it’s a great time to introduce these blue buddies to your kids.
The movie starts this Friday and here is the trailer:
How cute are they? If you’re looking for some great family fun, go see Smurfs The Lost Village. Okay, let’s be honest. You want to see it too, just don’t tell your kids. You’ll never live it down. It looks so cute. The movie stars Demi Lovato, Joe Manganiello, Mandy Patinkin, and Rainn Wilson
The synopsis of the movie is as follows: Best friends Smurfette (Demi Lovato), Brainy (Danny Pudi), Clumsy (Jack McBrayer) and Hefty (Joe Manganiello) use a special map that guides them through the Forbidden Forest, an enchanted wonderland that’s filled with magical creatures. Their adventure leads them on a course to discover the biggest secret in Smurf history as they race against time and the evil wizard Gargamel (Rainn Wilson) to find a mysterious village.
