The Smurfs 3 is already being developed by Sony Pictures Animation and Columbia Pictures.
Over the Hedge writer Karey Kirkpatrick and Chris Poche are currently producing a script for a third instalment of the animated family franchise, reports Variety. The Smurfs producer Jordan Kerner is also reportedly in line to develop the new project. The first Smurfs movie grossed over $550 million worldwide, with the studio confirming a sequel just 12 days after its release.

Sony Pictures Animation weren't gonna cave in for me, however they told me this: "THE SMURFS 3 is only in early stages of development with the script being written so there is no release date yet."

Cool news indeed! Here's hoping they stay in their own time and setting. The main human actors could always return as their ancestors. [Big Grin]

Production only recently began on Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation's The Smurfs 2, but Variety is now reporting that plans are already underway for a third adventure with Karey Kirkpatrick and Chris Poche returning to provide the screenplay.

The third Smurfs movie from Sony. The screenplay is still being written so no plot details are available yet.

Sony Already Smurfing 'The Smurfs 3'; Script Being Smurfed By 'Over the Hedge' producers.

Talk about planning ahead. Before our megaplexes can even be graced by the currently in-production sequel to 2011 children’s flick “The Smurfs,” the film’s studio Sony is really eager to turn the epic saga of these little blue individuals into a trilogy.
We heard about “The Smurfs” sequel awhile back as it added talent like Christina Ricci, Brendan Gleeson and J.B. Smoove to the mix, but Variety is reporting that Sony is getting a little ahead of themselves as the studio is already developing a script for "The Smurfs 3" with scribes Karey Kirkpatrick and Chris Poche onboard. Both were responsible for DreamWorks Animation’s “Over the Hedge,” and we’d guess they will probably be joined by many of the principal cast and creatives because this is the sort of films just screams “PAYDAY!” for all involved. We’re sure “The Smurfs” creator Peyo would never have believed that his beloved blue people would turn into such lucrative business for the film industry, but with a gross of $563 million worldwide for the first film, we understand it’s a genius business move to pull these creatures from their village a few more times.

The sequel has a release date of July 31, 2013 pegged, so we’d assume that given a year for production and animation, this threequel could be out by 2015. We’d like to try and feign interest, but this writer willingly admits to having sat through the first and will say it’s a pile of Smurf. Perhaps the addition of these scribes, who made a somewhat enjoyable animated feature already, could turn “The Smurfs” franchise into something more engaging and humorous. Here’s to hoping!

I expect it would be Jack Angel, since he has voiced Papa in "The Smurfs: A Christmas Carol".

Now let's put this topic with an exclamation(Hope I spelled this right) point! We should get info on the third and final movie soon enough.
 
Posted by smurfsatthedisco (Member # 4693) on 08-06-2013 01:17 PM:
 
Maybe the smurfs will go to Egypt in the third film? If you watch the first teaser trailer for the film, three landmarks turn blue (representing where the smurfs have visited):
Mount Rushmore- America (visited in the first film)
Eiffel Tower- France (visited in the Second film)
Pyramids- Egypt (visited in the Third film??)

Personally I would like to see them in their own time and village, but hopefully we'll find out the plot soon.

Where would you like to see the smurfs in the third film if you could choose?

THE SMURFS 3 MOVIE PLOT

Hank Azaria discusses the story behind the third Smurfs movie during an interview...

While doing press for Smurfs 2, actor Hank Azaria (who plays the Smurf-hating wizard Gargamel) revealed that the next movie will reveal the origins story behind the Smurfs, and goes on to explain what he believes really happened to Gargamel in the past.

"I hear that the third movie, if there is one, might actually deal with the genuine origin of how all these characters ran into each other way back when."

"I imagine Gargamel having attended a Harry Potter-like academy in his youth for wizards, and was sort of the black sheep - first of all, wasn't very good. Second of all, he must have thought the way to really be a powerful magician is to grab these Smurfs and grab their essence and everybody must have said, 'You're an idiot. Don't waste your life doing that.' And he's been trying his whole life to prove them wrong."

RAJA GOSNELL INTERVIEW

Raja Gosnell talks about inspiring the late legendary comedian Jonathan Winters and "The Smurfs 3" Movie.

******************************

Interview with Raja Gosnell - Director of The Smurfs Movies:

Raja Gosnell spoke about the likelihood of a third Smurfs outing, working with the late comedy legend Jonathan Winters on the voice of Papa Smurf and why audiences won't see Ryan Gosling cozying up to Smurfette any time soon.

"Smurfs 2" is one of Jonathan Winters' final film roles. What was it like to work with him?

When he came in to do the first movie, he was feeling forgotten by the world. After the first film became a big hit, his entire attitude changed and he was just more positive and engaged with life. It was wonderful to see him get embraced by the public again.

We feel just blessed that he was able to do this film with us. Jonathan's warmth and the resonance of his voice — its sincerity — he just was Papa.

Will it be difficult to envision another actor in the role of Papa Smurf if there is a "Smurfs 3"?

We don't like to count our Smurfs before they hatch, but if we are lucky enough to do "Smurfs 3," I assume that whoever takes over the role will have to reinvent Papa the way the Bond films have done. It won't be an impression of Jonathan.

How do you cast the Smurfs' human counterparts? You have an impressive list of actors like Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays and Brendan Gleeson. Why did you think of them for this?

We set out to cast great actors with comedic skills, but we also wanted to find someone who the audience can believe is actually talking to a Smurf. It's not a science, it's just a gut feeling. But when I think of Jayma Mays, I can picture her talking to a Smurf.

Ryan Gosling or Ryan Reynolds, I don't know if those actors could seamlessly co-exist with the Smurfs.

You've directed two Smurfs films and two films based on Scooby Doo. Were you a huge fan of Saturday morning cartoons as a kid?

How did you guess? I was a huge, huge fan of Scoopy Doo and all the Warner Bros. cartoons. Any comedy timing I have is directly descendant from Chuck Jones.

If there is a third Smurfs movie, will you direct it?

Absolutely. I have fun every single day making these movies. My hope is that they will grow in the direction of the Harry Potter films and get deeper and deeper and that the audiences will grow along with us.

There are lot of stories to be told — and 50 years of Peyo's work to dig into.

I still think that Kiff VandenHeuvel would make a good replacement voice for Papa Smurf if Jack Angel ends up on the "eternally unavailable" list in the next year.

Smurfs 2 failed at the box office? Really? I don't see why. It was so much better than the first, and it was the first that was a major success. Doesn't make sense to me. I think 3 will be successful. Especially since it's going to be an origin story taking place in their own world.

True, but look at the stars, the ratings were kinda low and a lot of people say it wasn't that good, but I don't believe them

I wouldn't expect Sweepy to be in any of the films. He was a one off character in one episode. So it's understandable.

Posted by Shaney Smurf (Member # 1345) on 02-26-2014 06:58 AM:
 
A good friend of mine shared this link with me last night. Apparently Sony Pictures has decided to have Smurfs 3 entirely animated and not live action. The link to the article is as follows:


'Smurfs 3' Will Be Animated, Not Live-Action

After the second film in the "Smurfs" franchise took in quite a bit less than its predecessor, execs at studio Sony are shaking up the series for the third installment, and making "The Smurfs 3" entirely animated.

Variety reports that while the first "Smurfs" film, released in 2011, made $563.7 million on a budget of about $110 million, "Smurfs 2" took a considerable dip: the 2013 sequel made more than $200 million less, taking in $347.5 million with a budget of $105 million.

While "Smurfs 2" was by no means a flop, those numbers have made Sony nervous, and they're looking to shake things up for the next outing, ditching the live action/animation hybrid format for complete animation. Variety reports that the studio is "fast tracking" "Smurfs 3" in an effort to up its number of tentpole franchises, which right now consists almost exclusively of the "Spider-Man" films.

"The Smurfs 3" is due out August 14, 2015.

http://news.moviefone.com/2014/02/25/smurfs-3-animated/


What are your thoughts on this? Personally I'm excited. Especially since this is going to be an origin story set in their time. I think it's great that it will be completely animated since we've already had two films in live action.
 
Posted by Sassette (Member # 2) on 02-26-2014 04:12 PM:
 
What exciting news! Although I'll miss seeing Hank Azaria playing Gargamel, I'm VERY curious and excited to see what they eventually come up with!

Smurfaroo - thanks for posting the news!

[Happy Smurf]

I still find it interesting that the first Smurf movie made $563 million and 74% ($421 million) of it came from the foreign box office!

There was never a real threat of the second movie not being made. Sony had already locked in $150 million in promotions (with more than 100 partners) before the movie was even released! They were in the green from the start. Although I'm sure they hoped for similar (or better!) results than the first movie.

I wonder what the promotion deal is for this 3rd movie?
 
Posted by Richrod Smurf (Member # 5003) on 02-26-2014 07:03 PM:
 
Sassette - I finally saw "Smurfs 2" this past weekend via YouTube, and I loved it! The only thing I really didn't like about the story was the crude humor that Raja Gosnell and company just had to throw in, such as saying "smurf" instead of a swear word or frequent jokes about body parts (was having Grandpa Victor become a naked human from a duck in-flight really necessary?) [Frown]

I've heard lots of reasons why moviegoers didn't like "Smurfs 2"--retconning Smurfette's origin as a Naughtie, introducing the Naughties in the first place, time-traveling to the present day instead of keeping it in the Smurf Village--but the lowbrow humor was the one complaint I heard the most. Maybe that's why the sequel didn't do so well as the first.

But whatever the reason was, the dropoff in revenue between the first and second films here in the USA is a real shock. No wonder Sony swept it into the portal (so to speak) and focused instead on the more successful "Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2". The executives at Sony must really be shaking in their smurfs to make the third film all-animated instead of a hybrid.

Last time I heard, they were thinking about scrapping the trilogy idea altogether and end it at two. But they've already invested hundreds of millions (if not billions) into the trilogy, and they have an obligation to Studio Peyo and the Cullifords to complete it, so I guess they're scrambling to make good and smurf out with a bang. All I know is that when Smurf fans keep telling me my version of Vexy with brown hair is better than the official one from the film, that's not a good sign at all. [Frown]
 
Posted by Shaney Smurf (Member # 1345) on 02-27-2014 08:48 AM:
 
You are very welcome, Sassette. I'll miss seeing Hank Azaria as well, but I'm sure he'll still be doing the voice for ol' Gargy. [Big Grin]

Rich, I agree with you about toilet and other crude humor. Don't really care for it. However, I'm not surprised, because that has been the growing trend in the media and society since the 80s. I believe it was the Canadian Show "You Can't Do That On Television", that also aired on Nickelodeon, is what helped start the trend. I was a bit surprised by the naked Grandpa Victor gag, though. Felt that was a bit too much. lol

Should be interesting to see an all animated feature, though. The article doesn't say if it's going to be CGI animated like Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs was, or if it's going to be toon animated like the Smurfs Christmas Carol and Sleepy Hallow (still have to see that one). I personally would love to see a full featured Smurfs film that is toon animated.

Sony knew they played The Smurfs safe for too long now They listened to the fans' demand (i was one of them) which in this case a Fully Animated movie.
At least they didn't let the franchise suffered the same fate as Alvin and the Chipmunks,now it's a win-win situation for both fans and Sony.
I knew they would change their minds!
Now make a movie worthy of the franchise Sony,you made the right choice!

I'm an agent representing Jokey Smurf. He would really like more screen time in "Smurfs 3".

He is willing to give up his demands for blue M&M's only; willing to give up the request for Cristal champagne; and willing to give up his request for C-4 explosives.

However, he will stand firm in his demand for 50 pizzas per meal (pepperoni, green pepper - absolutely no mushrooms!) and a case of beer in his trailer; a Queen-Sized bed to nap in; his own personal trailer; and all the yellow boxes and red ribbon that he can get. He also requires computer access for playing jokes on his co-stars.

He also requests Chef Smurf as his personal caterer.

For Smurfs 3 to be fully animated, it has to better be completely CGI, or else it can go straight to video like A Christmas Carol and The Legend Of Smurfy Hollow if it's going to be just 2D animation. Just DON'T CALL IT SMURFS 3 if that's the case.
 
Posted by Shaney Smurf (Member # 1345) on 02-27-2014 01:51 PM:
 
It doesn't have to be straight to video just because it's 2D traditional toon animation, Vic. Why would you say that? How many full length feature films did we grow up to over the years that were traditional toon animation? That's what they always were until 3D CGI came on the scene in 1995. Just because they have CGI now doesn't mean traditional toon animation should be straight to video only now. I don't agree with that logic.
 
Posted by Oakley Smurf (Member # 2823) on 02-27-2014 04:08 PM:
 
I could care less about whether it's traditional 2D or fully CG Animated I mean some cartoons looked the best when going old school way and other worked with CG animated and The Smurfs worked in both methods.
I mean it's going to be even better to see The Smurfs movie in a traditional way,because to be honest it's harder and harder to see the hand drawn style of cartoon on the silver screen nowadays it could be a lost art soon if they kept making things Digitally.
Classics stays classic you can ruin it but you can't kill it that's the magic of hand drawn animation or at least in a traditional way.
There's a reason why Winnie The Pooh (2011) was so well received critically.

Vic, come on really. The Smurfs were ALWAYS cartoons from the start. That is how they started back in the late 50s, as a comic, right on all through the 80s with the CARTOON SERIES. It wasn't until 2010 that... oh wow... they are suddenly CGI.

Give the Peyo family more input and it should be good movie.
I just can't take Vic sarcasm anymore man what's up with his sense of humor?
But really if it's full CG (the way Vic likes it) then they better go all out with it,if not then just hand the IP to Nickelodeon or Paramount or even Dreamworks and Blue Sky you know someone who gives
a **** about their acquired IP.

It was supposed to have CGI Smurf reboot film for Disney; after the success of "Frozen". but Sony stole my idea.

Other than that it will be totally animated, Sony Pictures hasn't let the smurf out of the bag about whether it would be 2D or 3D, or even about a plotline. There's been a lot of internet chatter about "Smurfs 3" being a prequel about how the Smurfs and Gargamel first met, or even how the Smurfs were created in the first place, but it's all speculation.

I am very sure that if da buggah's hand-drawn in 2D, Stephan Frank's Duck Studios will be the one doing it, and it can be finished by August 2015 if Sony hires or outsources enough animators.

And as for Vic George's humor, either one likes it or doesn't. He has a lot of pull in the fan fiction community through his Empath series, and personally I like some of his smurfy little zingers. If you like the quirky, surreal, off-the-wall humor of Jimmy Fallon, David Letterman and the rest of the American late-night TV crowd (and I do), then you'll understand where Vic's coming from. If you don't like it, well... whatever smurfs you out. [Wink]

Here's the a new info on The Smurfs:
hollywoodreporter
Not content to let Disney Animation or DreamWorks Animation hog the spotlight, Sony Pictures Animation is ready to make some waves of its own as it ramps up a trio of projects it will release in the next two or three years.
SPA is betting big on Genndy Tartakovsky, the popular animator behind Dexter’s Laboratory, Samurai Jack and Star Wars: The Clone Wars, who is working on two of the three projects.
Tartakovsky, who already directed Hotel Transylvania and is deep into Popeye for the company, is continuing his relationship with SPA by not only signing on to direct Hotel Transylvania 2 but by also developing a new original creation tentatively called Genndy Tartakovsky’s Can You Imagine?

The plot is being kept deep in the recesses of the mind, but it is described as a fantastic journey through one boy’s imagination. Michelle Murdocca, who produced Hotel Transylvania, is producing Can You Imagine?, which Tartakovsky is writing and will direct.
“When he comes up with a great idea, of course you want to listen to it,” says Bob Osher, the president of Sony Pictures Digital Productions who initially brought Tartakovsky to work on the first Hotel Transylvania.
Tartakovsky is working on Can You Imagine? as he tackles directing duties on Hotel Transylvania 2, which is being written by Adam Sandler and Robert Smigel and has a release date of Sept. 25, 2015.
All this while still working on the company’s Popeye, which is in production for a release sometime in 2016. Osher believes that Tartakovsky’s past in television prepared the animator to juggle a film workload: “In the world of television, they work on multiple episodes simultaneously while also keeping an eye on an entire season. He’s used to, and likes, a high level of workload.”
SPA also is developing a new, all-animated Smurfs movie and recently tapped as director Kelly Asbury, the animation vet who was nominated for the Cannes Film Festival’s Palme d’Or for Shrek 2 and most recently directed the hit animated comedy Gnomeo & Juliet.

SPA and Sony division Columbia are coming off of two successful Smurfs movies that were made as live-action/animated hybrids (the two together grossed around $910 million worldwide) but this new animated-only feature is aimed to bring the designs and environments more in line to the original art by Smurfs creator Peyo.
The plot is being kept under wraps, but the movie aims to explore the origin of the internationally loved blue creatures.
The movie, which will be produced by Jordan Kerner and co-produced by Mary Ellen Bauder, already has a release date of Aug. 14, 2015.

Awesome! it set out to be The Smurfs movie worthy of the franchise,faithful to its original roots! [Wink] [Big Grin]
Good to know they finally get rid of Raja Gosnell this guy sure knows how to ruin childhood icons.
I still keep my smurfs crossed until they share some more info. [Roll Eyes]

Now THIS is a Problem! My idea of an Animated Smurfs reboot for Disney goes away.

You see, when I put my forum about the movie, Marier Villarreal says:

quote:
That's most improbable... but don't let that stop it. If Dreamworks is making a CGI movie of Peabody's Improbable History, then Disney CAN reboot The Smurfs. But is anyone working there aware of it?
After the success of Disney's recent film, Frozen (including winning 2 Oscars); I was thinking about Smurfs reboot for either Walt Disney Animation Studios or Pixar Animation Studios, A Smurfs reboot movie will be an Epic adventure, like did with previous Smurfs movie from Paramount and Nickelodeon. Something like Fergully: The Last Rainforest, but with Musical.

Now, Sony stole MY idea!

If you're so confident that you'll do better job than SPA then go ahead sue them.
Anything to get the IP back.

All I can say is a reboot that honestly starts everything entirely from scratch is a much better solution than just the deceptively easy idea of releasing a so-called third movie that has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the previous two movies, either artistically or thematically. Children can buy into the idea of watching that kind of a sequel when they don't know any better, but older fans would know the difference as being like night and day.
 
Posted by Shaney Smurf (Member # 1345) on 03-16-2014 07:26 AM:
 
The third movie doesn't need to have anything to do with the first two, Vic. I'm an older fan myself since the cartoon series premiered over 30 years ago. I would LOVE to see a feature film of the Smurfs that take us back to their roots rather than going into modern day times and cities. The first two films were fun, sure. I have the blu-rays for both and I enjoy them. But we need a feature film that shows the Smurfs throughout their own world and focuses on where they are from. We haven't had a completely animated Smurfs feature film since The Magic Flute, from almost 40 years ago. I think this will be a good idea if done right.
 
Posted by VicGeorge2010 (Member # 300) on 03-16-2014 08:52 AM:
 
I'm not sorry to say this, but I do hate "in name only" sequels to movies. If it's going to be a reboot, BE HONEST AND UPFRONT ABOUT IT AND DON'T CALL IT A SEQUEL! Lower-budget studios can get away with this sort of manipulative garbage, but this is Sony Pictures we're talking about.

Another thing a movie series reboot should do is avoid what TV Tropes calls "continuity lock-out", which is making a story that requires a lot of immersive research into a fiction's lore to make sense of the whole story, like how this character knows that character and so on. This being children's entertainment that we're talking about, a Smurf story should be accessible to anyone of any age without having to go through watching like all nine seasons of the Smurfs cartoon show or exploring the entire comic book series just to understand something within 90 minutes or 2 hours of sitting in the theater. This is not saying that it shouldn't have like little "easter eggs" for longtime Smurfs fans to find, but the basic story shouldn't require the audience doing a lot of homework to understand it.
 
Posted by VicGeorge2010 (Member # 300) on 03-16-2014 04:53 PM:
 
Another thought:

While Sony Pictures may consider the past two Smurfs movies to be "creative train wrecks", I personally don't think they are. It's just that, because live-action/CGI-animated movies are so expensive to make, they ended up taking the path of least resistance when it comes to creating a storyline that they can afford to produce. There's only so much you can do with the "bring the Smurfs into the modern world" story line that it eventually wears thin with repeated use. What's left to do once you used it twice already? This was pretty noticeable when somebody at Smurfs Wiki posted a movie poster image for The Smurfs 3, suggesting that it was going to now be set in London. I mean, ENOUGH WITH THE TIME TRAVEL ALREADY! They're supposed to be set in the Middle Ages, like in the comic books and the cartoon show. Unfortunately, the expenses that come with creating good live-action/CGI-animated movies means that, unless you're Peter Jackson and you've got the funds and the studios to turn J.R.R. Tolkien's works into epic movies, you're not likely to see a Smurfs movie of that sort with the same kind of attention given to it to make it just as close to epic in its own way. Sure, I consider the two movies to be good, but it's still too much of the Smurfs being fish out of water when it's all said and done. The reboot movie really has to put them back where they belong in the time period that they fit perfectly in, without resorting to such cheap methods of being able to tell a story with all the CGI power they possess. It's got to have their style of humor that fans have known them for. It's got to have more Smurfs in the story doing things together instead of just the same several Smurf characters for all of 90 minutes. If the story has to have humans in it, do them also as CGI, but don't make them either too real or too much like animated plastic figurines. These are characters, NOT TOYS, and they should be treated as such. If the reboot looks like a half-smurfed monkey job that can be done on the Gamecube, why should I bother watching it in the theaters?

"First look at the upcoming Peanuts movie. Watch Good Morning America tomorrow morning for the exclusive teaser premiere."

Here's my thought on this picture:Barami Snaeha:"Peanuts looks fine to me considering how bad The Smurfs 1 and 2 looked now the smurfs 3 going all animated. Can't wait for both next year!"

By comparison The Smurfs 1,2 looked crude compared to this,maybe I'll have to wait for its teaser tomorrow...

SPA better show something soon because their biggest rival already showed something!

It's a reboot! They are NOT calling it "The Smurfs 3" like they were some cheap studio looking to make a buck from a "in name only" sequel.

I like the style used for the Peanuts movie trailer. It's sort of like a cel-shaded cartoon, but better, and it definitely works for that type of adaptation.

Just also thinking: a modern adaptation of the cartoon show episode "Every Picture Smurfs A Story" would work better in CGI since it could have Maestro and Papa Smurf pop right out of their paintings back into three-dimensional beings.
 
Posted by Shaney Smurf (Member # 1345) on 03-19-2014 07:46 PM:
 
I don't know if I ever saw that episode before with the Maestro. So I bought it on Amazon and watched. That was a really good episode and I enjoyed it. Don't remember ever seeing that one. Don't know how that slipped through the cracks of all the years I watched the Smurfs, unless I just forgot from only seeing it once.

At any rate, I think Jack Angel did the voice of Maestro. I saw Jack Angel's name in the credits for that episode and it certainly sounds like him. It's interesting because Jack Angel did Papa Smurf's voice in the new animated direct to DVD features (Smurfs Christmas Carol and Legend of Smurfy Hollow) and is slated to be the voice of Papa Smurf in the next Smurf movie.

Smurfs Reboot was supposed to be THE LION KING-esque film, with some elements from FernGully: The Last Rainforest, from Walt Disney Animation Studios; but Sony stole my idea.

I know, sue them. I get it, Oakley Smurf
 
Posted by VicGeorge2010 (Member # 300) on 03-22-2014 07:48 AM:
 
We have still yet to see the animation models for the Smurfs that Sony's going to use for the reboot, so until we get confirmed pictures of those, I'm going to pass judgment on them for now. But I still think the original Toy Story-esque idea for the Smurfs movie when it was under Nickelodeon's pre-production period was a bad idea.

Well, you better see it. This movie is a smashing success that I wanted to turn Smurfs reboot into an epic musical adventure comedy-drama in the same vein as The Lion King and sharing some plot from FernGully: The Last Rainforest. and is for Walt Disney Animation Studios, instead of Sony Pictures Animation (for Sony, That idea of a Smurfs reboot, I get that first in October 2013).
 
Posted by VicGeorge2010 (Member # 300) on 03-23-2014 05:36 AM:
 
Who says that the Smurfs reboot needs to be a musical? Why can't they just have a comical adventure without the need to have it be exactly like a Disney movie, right down to having musical numbers?

As for that mock-up movie poster, that's what was wrong with the live-action/CGI-animated movie series...too much reliance on time travel and having the Smurfs go into the modern world just to have a story that the production crew can film on the budget they were given. Once was pretty much enough, and twice was pushing it. Going for three times is saying that they don't have the imagination to create anything more befitting of their original comic book and cartoon show adventures.
 
Posted by Shaney Smurf (Member # 1345) on 03-23-2014 06:12 AM:
 
I agree with Vic completely here. For this reboot, let's just see the Smurfs in a comical adventure very much like in their comics and cartoon series in this full length feature film.
 
Posted by Oakley Smurf (Member # 2823) on 03-23-2014 07:57 AM:
 
Bring on the REAL smurfs movie!
I had enough of Sony playing it "safe" with The Smurfs,time to take chances with the third one it could brings a fresh new start to the franchise if they done it right.
A teaser like Peanuts movie did few days ago would be nice too!

Because Tangled and Frozen has more Money, because it's Musical. Well, Wreck-It Ralph a non-musical film has earned 470 million, but Tangled has earned 590 million because of musical number.

I heared that Smurfs reboot will be just like Gnomeo and Juliet for Sony, did you know that this film, has fewer songs, no drama and has earned 193 million. because it's too childish and not for whole family.

Please change your heart from Sony Pictures Animation to Walt Disney Animation Studios and be good like Olaf the Snowman

Sorry, Oscar, but to be polite, I'm not kissing your little blue tail and going along with what you want. This is Sony's production and I'll let them do what they feel is right for the movie without being pressured by a lot of different swaying opinions. If it doesn't turn out the way certain people want it, then we'll just have to deal with it.

This is true, has many very expensive animations that received a higher budget and that became blockbusters
But maybe one day someone decides not thinking about giving Smurf-Fans what they really want to see in theaters, A story based exactly on the cartoon and the stories of Peyo more without removing the Smurfs of his time, or else will have the members themselves Bluebuddies plan a good story, if think about working with animated films, I still think that someone had thought of Smurf-Fans and give really wHAT we want, but until there!

The problem with "giving fans what they want" is that fans aren't always in agreement with what they want, and sometimes what one group of fans want contradicts what another group of fans want. It's good for a production crew to be receptive of what the fans want, but there comes the point where the fans have to realize that they don't own the franchise, they don't have complete control of the production crew, and therefore they can't call the final shots of what goes into something that the crew is producing. If anything, the Culliford family most likely has the final say in what's going into the next Smurfs movie, and though we may not like what that final decision (and the final product) ends up being, we have to acknowledge where our limits are as far as being fans.
 
Posted by Shaney Smurf (Member # 1345) on 03-24-2014 10:13 AM:
 
I think most fans would be in agreement if Sony just decided to base the film around a lot of their comics ideas. Make it like a motion picture comic. All the original elements the Smurfs were built upon in the comics. I would personally think that the movie would be based on the comic world that we all grew up to reading in the first place. Why not? That's what the Smurfs were originally created for. So just make a full length feature film out of some of the comics. Make the movie feel like we entered the Smurfs comics. I think that is the best explanation idea that takes everything back to the base. Why argue Pyeo's original inspiration?
 
Posted by VicGeorge2010 (Member # 300) on 03-24-2014 11:33 AM:
 
"Back to the base" may end up being back to their 1958 roots as support characters for Johan and Peewit, when the Smurf Village was still in the barren forest known as the Cursed Land.
 
Posted by Shaney Smurf (Member # 1345) on 03-24-2014 02:06 PM:
 
That's not what I meant, Vic, and you know it. Allow me to clarify. Back to the base when the Smurfs were established as main characters. Average out their story in the comics when they were at their peak of popularity before the cartoon television series. Don't be so difficult.

Sony has been going back and forth on whether or not to make a live - action 'traveling' movie, or to make a reboot. They WILL be making a reboot set in our favorite place - Smurf Village. HOWEVER the director, Kelly Asbury has stated due to the set back, the movie will be released internationally on August 5, 2016!! The USA should be seeing it in Summer 2016, hopefully July! She also states that the movie will be FULLY computer animated. This means it will be done in 3D CGI!

The Modern Day Smurfs finally stay hom3, in their own village.

But...the film still remains untitled!

As detailed on this page, the phrase 'three apples high' is not meant to be taken literally:

quote:
The original French comics actually use the expression "haut comme trois pommes", which simply means "small", and has nothing to do with apples. It is analogous to how the English expression "knee high to a grasshopper" doesn't actually have anything to do with grasshoppers (it is an expression about being very young). Regardless, Hanna Barbera turned "three apples tall" into one of the dominant phrases associated with the Smurfs. "Three Apples Tall" is now synonymous with "The Smurfs".
Still, as the director of the movie I suppose he can make the Smurfs any height he desires.

Smurfs 2 failed at the box office? Really? I don't see why. It was so much better than the first, and it was the first that was a major success. Doesn't make sense to me. I think 3 will be successful. Especially since it's going to be an origin story taking place in their own world.
I kind of expected Smurfs 2 to not do as well as The First movie. I did go and see it and it was okay.

*SNIP*


What are your thoughts on this? Personally I'm excited. Especially since this is going to be an origin story set in their time. I think it's great that it will be completely animated since we've already had two films in live action.

It's about time! Hopefully 2d animation will be used for this.

If anything, the Culliford family most likely has the final say in what's going into the next Smurfs movie, and though we may not like what that final decision (and the final product) ends up being, we have to acknowledge where our limits are as far as being fans.

Bingo!

In fandoms I have been a part of there's that one group that feels a sense of "entilement" to demand companies do what they want just because they are fans.

If we're going to get behind this we have to stop thinking about what we personally would want out of it and meet halfway with our expectations.

Having it be fully animated in 2D is a big start.

Just stop hating Sony already stop acting like you're belong to Pixar or something.
If this a sarcastic joke then I ain't enjoy it.
Sony got the property years before the first movie even begin and it's not like they going to mess it
up this time they can't afford another under-perform smurf movie.

I'm so sorry, Oakley Smurf, you see, I almost go to college and I want to work at Disney and make movies, attraction and even games.

I always wanted to see The Smurfs as a Disney film, so I decide to make one.

Well, The story is about a young boy who got shrunk in the size of the smurf, after her original love interest died.

Following the Enormous success of Frozen, I was thinking of Adding Musical Numbers.

and the CGI Smurfs will be similar to this:
 -
in which Smurfs got blue eyes and their design will be different, like the one used on Tangled, Wreck-It Ralph and Frozen.

Characters: Oscar (I know, is named after me), is a young boy who got shrunk in the size of a smurf. Celest, Oscar's original love interest until her death. an unnamed talking ferret (voiced by Max Casella, who voiced Daxter in Jak and Daxter series), Like Aladdin has Genie, My Little Mermaid has Sebastian Beauty and the Beast has Lumiere and Frozen has Olaf, a Comic Relief in this film. an unnamed obese guy (voiced by Alan Tudyk, who voiced King Candy/Turbo in Wreck-it Ralph and Duke of Weselton in Frozen), a new sidekick for Gargamel and another comic relief, inspired by Mr. Smee.

Papa Smurf, Smurfette, Clumsy, Hefty, Baker, Chef, Farmer, Greedy and Gutsy will be back.

Yeah, I will see the movie, sorry. Oakley Smurf

To celebrate Peyo's Birthday SPA just released a tiny glimpse at the smurfs' new design which
appeared to be closely resembled the original style of Peyo Smurfs!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, (THE REAL) PAPA SMURF!

Today is GLOBAL SMURFS DAY! Eighty-six years ago today, on June 25, 1928, Pierre "Peyo" Culliford, creator of THE SMURFS, was born in Schaerbeek, Belgium, not far from Brussels.

Peyo worked until his death on Christmas Eve 1992, publishing a new Smurfs comic - “Finance Smurf” - that previous November. His amazing legacy of laughter and imagination has never wavered, and it inspires my movie making team and I to work hard at carrying on his tradition of quality entertainment for all ages, worldwide. Our constant aim is to produce an all new movie adventure which Peyo himself would have been proud of. Recently - as posted two weeks ago during my trip to Paris - I had the pleasure of meeting Peyo's daughter, Veronique Culliford, to whom I told the basic story for this movie. She seemed very pleased with the concept and even commented that I was “very Smurfy!”; I take that as a high compliment, coming from her!

Keep in mind that the movie is still two years away, so there's lots of work left to do. It is still a bit early to post any new artwork from the production (but, keep checking, because it's going to happen!), but I thought it would be fun to show this very Smurfy piece, which my True Blue Team created in celebration of the great Peyo and GLOBAL SMURFS DAY! - KA (Kelly Asbury)

Game of Smurfs!

So, in a moment of self delusion, I came up with what I thought was a brilliant idea: A SMURFY CHESS SET!

BUT…

…About halfway through this ingenious little slice of inspiration, I performed a quick internet search and quickly discovered that, over the years, there have been several such Smurfy Chess Sets produced. I’m waaaay late in the game.

Therefore, what’s here is my very rough, unfinished idea. I thought it was worth at least proving that I do indeed still manage to find the time for real doodling.

Now, onto my next one: SMURFOPOLY!!!

(This time I’ll do a search first.)

Smurfing the Look!

Noelle Triaureau is Production Designer for the UNTITLED SMURFS MOVIE (Please be patient. An official title will be announced very soon). On previous films, like CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS, HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA and SURF’S UP, Noelle has served as an Art Director and Visual Development Artist. Best of all, as a child growing up in France, Noelle was an avid fan of the original Smurfs comic books by their creator, Peyo.

Here, Noelle answers my Smurfy Questionnaire…

KA: What is the job of a PRODUCTION DESIGNER on an animated feature film?
NT: The Production Designer’s role is to create the ‘look’ of the film that supports the Director’s vision and the story he wants to tell.

KA: Do you have a favorite Smurf?
NT: Fireman Smurf

KA: If you were a Smurf, what would your name be?
NT: Anna Gram Smurf

KA: So far while working on this all new Smurfs movie, what has been a fun or favorite behind-the-scenes moment?
NT: Seeing the characters come to life, such as Gargamel in a Vis Dev 3D test, where he’s walking around a street corner, pondering: “I am but a simple wizard with a simple desire: limitless power and world adulation! Now why does it have to be so hard??”

KA: If you could have one magic power, what would it be?
NT: Teleportation. There are so many amazing places to discover!

(This wonderful caricature of Noelle was drawn by our equally wonderful character designer Patrick Mate)

Smurfs Nacho Friday!!!

Our Co-Producer Mary Ellen Bauder and Production Manager Theresa Benz, with the help of Assistant Luis Mora, hosted a Smurftastic nacho bar for the movie team! Lots of chips, melted cheese, taco meat, jalapenos, guacamole, sour cream and salsa spiced up the end of another productive week. What nachos have to do with Smurfs is beside the point, because it’s the great taste and getting together that counts most!

What’s next, Smurfy Sloppy Joes?

The Joy Is In The Journey…

Smurfing an animated feature takes time and patience, even when working at the slightly accelerated pace of this new Smurf adventure (Yes, 2016 is a relatively quick release date!), but along the way are all sorts of challenges and opportunities. It is a true journey during which the entire filmmaking team makes great discoveries. We here at Sony Pictures Animation are just getting started…but it’s going to be an exciting trip!

HAPPY SMOURTH OF JULY!!!

This July 4th marks The United States of America’s 238th Birthday, the day in 1776 when my country’s founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence.

And to mark the occasion, this fun image was provided to us by LAFIG, the Belgian company which now so diligently carries on the Smurf tradition worldwide.

This artwork is the “Smurfication” of the famous "Spirit of ‘76" painting by Archibald Willard which I’ve also included for a fun comparison. That Willard painting, originally known as “Yankee Doodle” depicts America’s Revolutionary War victory. As a fun fact Archibald Willard’s father was the model for the drum-carrying character marching in the middle, hence Papa Smurf taking on that role in the Smurfs version.

So, in the American tradition for the day, have a hot dog, play some baseball and eat a big slice of apple pie!…or make it Smurfberry pie, if you have it!

One of the Fun Parts: The Story Pitch

Generally, making an animated movie is a fun process. It may take a long time, with lots of technicalities and complications involved along the way, but I love it still. One of the most enjoyable phases is the storyboarding process, when the script is interpreted by an artist who puts pictures to the written words. This always leads to surprises and, in the best case scenario, lots of laughs.

A room full of people gather to view a given scene, while the story artist clicks through his series of sequential storytelling drawings. All the while he describes the intended action and context of the scene, even lending sound effects and character voices as he goes. It’s a performance of sorts, with the objective of conveying how the scene might play in cinematic screen time. This pitch session is the first time I, as the director, have a chance to hear an audience react to certain gags or story elements. It’s an amazing way to find out whether a scene is working or needs more development. These pitches are a tool for the whole team…and, best of all, it’s fun!

One fun example of the surprises that can happen is like the time when the script pages only called for the SMURFS to be walking and talking as they moved through Smurf Village. The story artist, Steve Fonti, added the funny idea of a Clown Smurf to hop into the scene and make a random joke. Everyone present broke down in surprised and hysterical laughter. Steve’s new joke stuck and has been expanded upon, creating an entire new sideline character for the movie. Expect to see Clowny Smurf appear more than once in this upcoming movie…but that’s all I can divulge right now.

We get to make up stories and draw pictures for a living…Does it get any better than that?

It certainly doesn’t get any Smurfyer!

Viva La Smurf!

In France, today is Bastille Day. Once again, LAFIG, the wonderful company in charge of all things Smurf, has provided me with the image commemorating this historic time in French history.

This image is a Smurfy take on the famous painting “Liberty Leading the People" by Eugene Delacroix.

This all new Smurfs movie has more than a few French connections! Our Production Designer Noelle Triaureau and our Character Designer Patrick Mate are both French born and grew up enjoying The Smurfs by Peyo. As for me, having recently visited Annecy and Paris, I will enjoy some good baguette with cheese and a tall glass of Smurfberry Juice!

We call it “Scratch Dialogue” because it will only be used in the planning of the movie and will literally be “scratched” from the soundtrack, once a given character is cast with a genuine actor to perform the “Final Dialogue”.

For our own purposes, we most often ask around the studio for anyone who is interested in channeling their inner-thespian and might want to help out by lending us their voice for the Scratch Track. I call these erstwhile volunteers “Local Talent”. Some individuals turn out to actually be good actors, while others…not so much. It all depends on the needs of a scene, but whether a temporary voice works or not, scratch dialogue is an invaluable tool for the editor and the director to achieve proper timing and pacing.

In any event, recording scratch is a fun exercise, usually leading to loads of unexpected laughs. I myself have provided many scratch voices over the years, usually to only serviceable, if not dubious, results…I’ve even filled in for Papa Smurf on this movie! Trust me, I can’t wait until we cast a professional actor for that most important of all Smurf roles (and, yes, when we do, you will be among the first to know who it is!)

Smurfing The Best Choice…

A recent story meeting went something like this:

DIRECTOR: So in this scene our characters come upon a river too wide to cross. “Character A” suggests they use a natural bridge, which is far downstream, while “Character B” wants to try a more convenient, but dangerous way. This starts an argument, which results in the accidental loss of an “Important Object”, which they must now race to retrieve…What’s the clearest way to depict all of this?
STORY ARTIST: What is the natural bridge made of?
WRITER #1: In the script it’s a fallen tree.
WRITER #2: But it could be fallen rocks.
CONSULTANT: Are there large enough rocks in our world?
DIRECTOR: Sure. There’s no rule about that, yet.
STORY ARTIST: How deep is the river?
WRITER #1: Knee deep.
STORY ARTIST: So it’s really more like a creek.
WRITER #2: Well, it needs to be treacherous.
CONSULTANT: Like with rapids?
PRODUCER: Rapids are expensive.
DIRECTOR: Let’s go with the fallen tree.
STORY ARTIST: How far downstream is the tree?
DIRECTOR: Maybe a half mile?
WRITER #2: But it could be closer.
DIRECTOR: These characters are small, so it should “feel” like a half mile to them.
WRITER #2: It has to seem do-able, though.
STORY ARTIST: Is it a large tree?
DIRECTOR: Large in comparison to these characters.
CONSULTANT: What type of tree is it?
DIRECTOR: It just needs to be a large log fallen across the river.
CONSULTANT: How did it fall?
WRITER #2: We just assumed it fell from age.
CONSULTANT: So it’s an old tree?
DIRECTOR: Yes, let’s make it an old fallen tree.
STORY ARTIST: But you said it could be rocks.
DIRECTOR: Just make it a tree. A big, old dead tree.
CONSULTANT: Won’t a dead tree make a dark statement to the audience? (LONG MOMENT OF SILENCE)
DIRECTOR: Let’s take a break…

Meet Michelle Raimo Kouyate - President of Sony Pictures Animation!

1) What is the job of the PRESIDENT OF SONY PICTURES ANIMATION on an animated feature film?
I oversee the production for the studio, making sure all the creative elements of the film stay on track and reach their fullest potential. One of my most important roles is to support the director in realizing his or her vision.

2) Do you have a favorite Smurf?
Smurfette - I have a husband, 2 sons and a male dog so I know what it feels like to be the only girl in the village!

3) If you were a Smurf, what would your name be?
Mama Smurf - I love taking care of all my Smurfs both at work and at home.

4) So far while working on this all new Smurfs movie, what has been a fun or favorite behind-the-scenes moment?
There was this one particular sequence at the beginning of the movie where Papa is reprimanding the Smurfs for doing something they shouldn’t have been doing that was pitched by one of our talented storyboard artists — it was hilarious. We all paused, looked at you, then each other and said, we love it!! He hit on the right tone of comedy we were looking for. It was one of those great collaborative moments which I absolutely love about making animated movies.

5) If you could have one magic power, what would it be?
Flying for sure. I’ve always wished I could soar over a city at night like Peter Pan.

Smurfy Magic!
I am very proud to be able to count the great illusionist David Copperfield among my good friends. I met David in 2010, when he contacted me regarding DUMMY DAYS, a non-fiction book I wrote about the history of ventriloquism.

During my recent visit to Las Vegas he indulged me by posing with Smurfy, who appears to be entranced about the whole thing.

The Smurfs Animation Test


It's the old smurf animation test for The Smurfs of course.
But this old video can also acts as a new character design teaser...kind of.
Nonetheless he's looked so smurfy in this one!

Smurfing the Movie’s “THEME”

In my experience, there are three basic methods by which to arrive at the overall “Meaning” or “Theme” of a given movie. This is the “Lesson” all storytellers and filmmakers hope audiences walk away with after the tale has been told.

METHOD ONE: Start with a specific theme in mind, such as “You can’t judge a book by its cover” or “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” Anything that sums up the point of the whole thing. This method is tried and true, and serves as a touchstone to constantly remind the storyteller/s what they are trying to convey. From the start, the entire movie is designed to make a predetermined statement.

METHOD TWO: Let the theme emerge for the story and/or characters. Sometimes, it’s better to just start telling the tale and see what lesson/s bubble to the surface. This way is a bit more difficult, but can lead to some rich discoveries, particularly regarding character depth and motivation. There are a lot of surprises that come from allowing the story to find its own way toward deeper meaning.

METHOD THREE: Combine Methods One and Two. Start with the general idea for the theme, but allow for the story’s natural “evolution” to cause shifts in the original plan. This more open method gives way to all sorts of possibilities, but is always anchored in the storyteller’s first instincts. Sometimes this way leads to multi-leveled themes, which can have a profound effect on the audience’s experience.

Be it simple or complicated, bold or subtle, every story has some core meaning to it. There are no rules as to how one arrives at a Theme.

In any event, almost always, if I can’t find the Theme, it eventually finds me.

Patience Please

Making an animated movie takes a lot of time and there are always many talented people involved, all of whom have an opinion and/or an idea of what they envision the film to ultimately look like. The hard part is waiting for the basic foundation of the story and characters to become fully formed, before adding all the details.

It’s very easy to get caught up in wanting to taste the “icing” before the “cake” is fully baked.

Currently, Team Smurf and I are still at the earliest stages of story development. We are fortifying the slab on which the future awesome Mushroom house will be built.

I hope my drawing sort of says it all.

Keep’em Spinning!

On any movie, a lot of things happen at the same time. The Smurf Team is always hard at work maintaining each and every aspect of the production.

In short, we are never bored!

A day’s work might include a morning storyboard pitch, followed by an art direction meeting, then an update on character design.

Lunch can turn into a cinematography discussion, moving directly to a scratch dialogue session.

Afternoons can include a voice casting meeting, a script notes session, another storyboard pitch, all leading an editorial review.

Whatever the focus or department, each meeting is of equal importance and every “plate” must be kept “spinning”.

No broken plates allowed!

And, believe it or not, it’s still fun! I wouldn’t want it any other way.

A Smurfy Root Beer Tasting!

Animated movies are not all work and no play. The crew becomes close and lifelong friendships are struck. There are often fun team get-togethers for little reason beyond a bit of socializing.

Recently the Smurf Movie Editorial Team hosted a root beer tasting.

Goal: To find the perfect root beer!

Several people gathered to take sips of various brands of the wonderful dark bubbly drink. Each maker was hidden for fairness.

While I’m not at liberty to divulge the maker of the winning root beer, suffice it to say that it was spicy, refreshing, frothy and delicious!

A sudsy and Smurfy time was had by all!

Next time it will be a root beer FLOAT tasting!

The Hardest Part About Storyboarding…

Sometimes, the cold fact is that storyboarding is all about trial and error. What reads well on a script page just doesn’t always translate into a visual version of the same idea. Still, it is part of the story artist’s job to help the director and the whole movie team see whether a concept is going to work…or not.

Storyboarding requires a lot of revising and starting over from scratch. The job requires patience and a true spirit for teamwork. The objective is always to give any sequence its best chance to function within the context of the movie.

And there is real value in everyone seeing what DOESN’T work, as well as what does. A good story artist will take his lumps, then dive right back into working to get it right.

It’s all part of the process…though not the easiest part.

Lots of Smurfs in the Kitchen

A LOOK BACK AT THE PAST WEEK IN STORY…

I’ve said before “It takes a Smurf village” to make an animated movie. That notion is never more true than when discussing the story process.

Our writers along with several other story-oriented members of the Smurf Movie Team (myself included), have spent long hours in a big room, hashing out all sorts of ideas…and, as always, some ideas work…some don’t.

There is no more collaborative part of the animated movie making process than that of cooking up the story. It is intricate, delicate, detailed and exhaustive, but well worth the time spent in making sure the plot and characters work together to tell a good tale.

We laugh, we get frustrated, we yell, we draw funny pictures of each other, we eat lunch, we nearly destroy large erasable boards jotting down plot points and ideas…and we go home each night feeling as if we’ve run a marathon.

Then, next morning, we wake up and do it all again. We plug away until we have forged a story we all feel confident about. And we get nearer to that destination every day.

This, my Smurfs, is how animated stories come to be. I’ve been doing it like this for over thirty years, on many different movies, and it’s always the same.

We are cooking a “Story Soup”.

And, so far, it’s tasting pretty good!

What would a Smurf movie be without that dastardly Gargamel involved? As we finalize the villain’s design, we pay attention to every detail, including his big, floppy feet.

As always, I’m a stickler at making sure we are as true to Peyo’s original designs as possible. Peyo drew Gargamel in a very cartoony way, and we have to design him to animate in a believable, yet entertaining manner. We are in the process of creating several animation tests, exploring how Gargamel will move and act.

Expect his big feet to bring about some much-deserved giggles.

Stay tooned!

Smurfing The Story Reel!

Recently, our Editor, Mr. H. Lee Peterson, gave me a sneak peek at a rough assemblage of storyboarded footage for the entire movie! While it was indeed very preliminary, it was very helpful for me as the director to have the opportunity to “step back from the canvas” (see earlier post) and assess how things are shaping up.

We use temporary voices, sound effects and music in the story reel to help us design the overall pacing. It’s an invaluable tool in building an animated movie and becomes the true blueprint for the final version. We constantly improve on it and revise it until all the pieces are firmly in place.

This movie will be one crackling fun Smurf adventure, featuring all the characters we love…and full of some new surprises.

Smurfing The “Assets”

A lot of my time in the art department is spent approving assets. I look at many choices for the same thing which usually narrows down to two or three variations of a given asset, which can be used for a variety of purposes in the movie.

Assets are our friends!

Down To The Tiniest Blade Of Grass…

Almost every day I approve new assets for the art department, which are then turned over to the digital department, where it all gets built and textured. Every leaf, tree, flower and blade of grass is meticulously designed and constructed for a 3D environment.

This all-new Smurf movie is going to be lush with Belgian forest greenery, all depicted in a style very reflective of Peyo’s original world…but unlike flat illustrations in a comic book. Notice how each blade of grass is shaped in a way that Peyo himself might have drawn it - like a quick, fluid brush stroke. I’ve requested this type of design on all sorts of elements in the movie, such as strands of hair on some of the characters. It will be as if Peyo’s world is REAL!

Bruges From A Peyo Perspective

I was recently asked the following:

“Will Bruges be one of the main locations in the movie? How will the medieval buildings be transformed to a 3d environment?” - Kind regards, Koen Theuns

As this example shows, we will be depicting Bruges, Belgium in cartoon shapes reminiscent of Peyo’s original comics. All designs of this type will translate beautifully in 3D, lending a tactile reality to the rich world we are creating for the Smurfs.

Now, I can’t at this time divulge too much about the story, but I will say that many discussions are underway regarding the beautiful city of Bruges, both pre and post Renaissance. So stay tuned as things further develop.

What’s In A Bluebell?

My all new Smurfs movie takes place largely in an enchanted Belgian forest, somewhere near the ancient city of Bruges. Now, one of the many things Belgium is famous for is its beautiful fields of bluebells - the most prominent of which grow near the area where Smurfs creator Peyo lived.

As my team and I have been developing the story for the movie, (which will deal very much in the origins of the Smurfs featuring elements of time travel and magic) I’ve become quite focused on the idea that those amazing Belgian bluebells might play a significant role in Smurfs’ history…but I won’t give it all away here!

Those delicate little blue blossoms might hold enchanted surprises you’ll simply have to wait for.

Keep checking back for more hints as to what’s in store.

The Smurfs and the Howlibird

Peyo’s “Howlibird”…

As I’ve stated before, my primary intention for this all-new Smurfs comedy-adventure is to honor the original work of the property’s creator, Peyo. One such way I am doing that is by including as many references as possible to his early comics.

Therefore, in this new movie will appear a rather updated version of Peyo’s dreaded “Howlibird” (the original comic book designed pictured here).

At the present time, I won’t spoil just how this winged threat figures into the story, but suffice it to say that Howlibird will contribute to more than one surprise twist.

And, I promise, it will all result in high flying FUN!

Meet Patrick Mate… Character Designer and Lifelong Smurf Fan!

I’m very proud to report that I have worked with the very talented Patrick Mate on previous movies, including my first directorial effort, SPIRIT - STALLION OF THE CIMARRON (2002), as well as PRINCE OF EGYPT (1998), on which I was Head of Story. Patrick was born and raised in France, resulting in his being readily availed the original Peyo Smurf comic books. He was probably drawing Smurfs before he could read!

Patrick is my in-house go-to guy for anything regarding the look of a true Smurf…and he’s also fun to work with.

Here, he answers my Smurfy Questionnaire:

KA: What is the job of a Character Designer on an animated feature film?
PM: To create memorable characters that you can’t wait to buy as a toy.

KA: Do you have a favorite Smurf?
PM: Astronaut Smurf.

KA: If you were a Smurf, what would your name be?
PM: Artsy Smurf. His temper, his beret…it has to be me.

KA: So far while working on this all new Smurfs movie, what has been a fun or favorite behind-the-scenes moment?
PM: The Peach Pie Pitch Party! PPPP hooray!

KA: If you could have one magic power, what would it be?
PM: The power to cure.

Thanks Patrick! Everyone keep checking back for more fun Smurfy stuff from Patrick, as well as other people from my movie making team!

I’m constantly sketching tiny thumbnail drawings as part of my “figure it out” process before I assign a storyboard artist to a sequence. I’m usually the only one who sees these little doodles, but they are invaluable to me as the director. They help me see what I’m thinking as I think it.

And Now A Word From Smurfy Production Designer Noelle Triaureau…

Thank you Kelly for having me share my Smurf experience at the View Conference in Turin, Italy. The View is an international festival on digital cinema which brings together professionals and students in 3D animation, visual effects, and interactive technologies.

Marcelo and I had the pleasure to present the first fully computer generated Smurf Movie at the View, or I should say the “I Puffi” Movie as the Smurfs are known in Italy. We showed a number of Visual Development artwork of Smurfs, Gargamel and Azrael, as well as the Smurf village, a medieval human town, Smurf props, vegetation and forest animals.

The audience who grew up reading Peyo’s smurf comics, were very excited to see that this film is visually going back to the original designs and that there is going to be new characters and environments. There was a lot of applause at the Smurf and Gargamel animation tests and the sizzle we showed made everybody laugh. During the Q&A, someone said that he hoped the whole film will look like the visual development pieces. Among the questions raised, someone asked if the story would also be based on the comics. Although we could not give any details on the plot, we mentioned that it is going to be a completely original and fun story, and is going to answer many questions fans may have about the Smurfs.

Meet Art Director Marcelo Vignali…

Thanks Kelly, for letting me share my experience at the VIEW Conference in Turin, Italy. The VIEW Conference really provides a cutting edge experience for those working in the industry of animation and those looking to get into the industry — offering some of the top professionals sharing their insights and experience. As a presenter, I have to say the trip to attend the conference was really an incredible experience. The audience in Turin was really receptive to our Sony Pictures Animation Smurf presentation.

Our production designer Noelle Triaureau and I were really excited to show Turin the new look we’ve been developing on our upcoming new Smurfs movie. Most people weren’t aware that this isn’t a hybrid combination of live-action and CG animation like Smurfs I and II, but rather a whole new take on the Smurfs property — an entire reboot of the Smurfs franchise. We called our presentation, “Going Back to Peyo” [Pierre Culliford (25 June 1928 – 24 December 1992), known as Peyo, was a Belgian comics artist, perhaps best known for the creation of The Smurfs comic strip].

Looking out into the crowd, I could see there were some skeptical faces, but the skepticism soon turned to excitement and cheers as we showed Turin what we’ve been developing for the last year at Sony Pictures Animation. We showed artwork, character designs, a storyboard sequence, several CG model prototypes, walk cycles and a short animated sequence.

Much of the environments we’re creating for this new Smurfs movie are direct interpretations of Peyo’s comic book versions of the Smurfs and their world. Even the Smurf characters had a whole new “Back to Peyo” approach to their design, bringing them closer to that version of the Smurfs that European audiences fell in love with. When we showed Papa Smurf’s new design and walk cycle, we literally drew cheers and applause from the audience. Suffice it to say, they loved our back to Peyo approach.

Overall I would have to say the Smurf presentation was really well received. Judging from the reaction of the audience at the VIEW Conference in Turin, I’d have to say we’re on the right track!

Thanks for letting us share our experience on your blog.

A Smurfy CTN Presentation…

On Saturday, November 22, 2014, at the GIGANTICALLY ATTENDED CTN ANIMATION EXPO in Burbank, CA, I had the honor of hosting a panel which included some of the artistic leads on this all-new Smurf movie (we’re still working on the best possible title, but, when it is decided upon, this blog will be the first place you’ll see it!) The line-up included Production Designer Noelle Triaureau, Head of Story Brandon Jeffords, Art Directors Marcelo Vignali and Dean Gordon, and Character Designer Patrick Mate.

Together, we unveiled many exciting visual and character designs, as well as running clips of story reels, character animation tests and a special, fully realized “sizzle reel” demonstrating the closest thing we have yet to how fresh, funny and new this very Peyo influenced movie will be.

The audience seemed very pleased, even more than once breaking out in applause at the sight of our new environments and characters.

Brandon Jeffords topped off the event by performing a live story pitch, complete with storyboards, from one of our more lively and hilarious sequences depicting Gargamel being once again thwarted by Papa and his Young Smurfs…and the laughs came right where I wanted them!

I can’t wait until next year!

Smurfin’ Around The Christmas Tree!

This great bit of 2D dancing Smurf animation is from Sony Pictures Animation’s fun holiday short film, THE SMURFS: A CHRISTMAS CAROL (2011), which was directed by my buddy Troy Quane. The short is very true to Peyo’s “look” and possesses the type of fun we’re striving for with our all-new CG animated Smurf movie.

It’s always a challenge to interpret a traditional 2D cartoon into a more dimensional world, but my artistic team and I are really enjoying the challenge. I can’t wait to unveil the results.

What is the link to the director's blog? It used to be in this thread. I've scrolled every page in this thread and they have all been replaced by images hosted here at BlueBuddies. That's fine, but all I ask is that you please keep the original link to the actual source it's from underneath the item hosted here. Because now I have no way to get to the guy's site and I want to post some comments and give him some feedback. Please leave the original links here in addition to hosting the material here. Thank you. If anyone can give me the link to his actual blog site, I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Drawing A Smurf

A fan asked me the following…

"What’s the most difficult part of a Smurf to draw in your opinion? I find the legs the worst." - UncleGargy

I find the overall proportions in general are tricky. Now, I’m no expert at drawing Smurfs - as my blog regularly demonstrates - but I’m learning with each attempt. Generally, I start by drawing a familiar, classic, age-old cartoon character shape that has been around for decades - similar to a certain famous cartoon rodent one might have seen somewhere before. I give the head an egg shape, add the ears and big floppy hat (It always works best drawn larger than I initially think it should), then those cartoony dots for eyes and…well…it looks sort of like a Smurf…Of course, the color blue certainly seals the deal! As I said, I’m no expert at drawing Smurfs, but I seem to be getting by well enough.

Check back Wednesday morning for a special surprise in store which involves our own expert on the film discussing the topic at hand!

The truth is that I feel a little sad, I've been waiting for this movie for almost 2 years, and now I'll have to wait two years more! In two years everything can happen, I just hope I still a Smurfs fan, because you know, teenagers, we change almost every minute...

A GLOBAL SMURFS DAY FULL OF SURPRISES!
Now THIS is big Smurfy news!…

Not only am I bursting with pride to present to you this great image featuring the best example yet as to how the all-new fully-animated Smurfs Movie Reboot will look (You have to admit, it could have sprung right from the wonderful world originally created by Peyo!), but I’m also thrilled to finally announce our fun new official TITLE:

…wait for it…

GET SMURFY!

BUT THERE’S MORE!…

Our talented voice cast is shaping up to be the Smurfiest ever…and, so far, here’s who they are:

Gargamel will be played by the hilarious RAINN WILSON (The Office, Six Feet Under)!
Papa Smurf is the great stage and screen actor/singer MANDY PATINKIN (Princess Bride, Homeland)!
Smurfette is the platinum-selling recording artist DEMI LOVATO!
Wow! How much more news can one blog deliver in a single post?

Keep checking back as more and more news and images begin to be made public!

And HAPPY GLOBAL SMURFS DAY!

Brainy is just wow super adorable and everyone else looked to be faithful to peyo's original!
Finally they get their looked just right,can't wait for more images! [Big Grin] [Cool] [Roll Eyes]

I always thought they were not going to use Katy Perry in this movie because she was a pop star and not really an actress, but now they'll use another pop star (but Demi's an actress too), hmmm... I think they need a hook, let's just wait... And I felt I little sad because I really liked Hank Azaria, but just by listening to Wilson's voice I think he's going to be a good voice for Gargamel, and same with Patinkin and Papa Smurf, I'm neutral with Demi and Smurfette because I'm really used to Lucille's and even Katy's voice for Smurfette, and for some reason I can't imagine her with another voice, so as I already said, let's just wait...

I like it a little better than flat or plasticky. If I want flat, I'll watch a Paper Mario playthrough. If I want plasticky, I'll watch someone playing with their PVCs.

Back in 2012, the 3rd smurf movie was expected to come out in 2015, and now it is expected to come out in 2017. The Release date is currently set for March 31st, 2017 but it certainly isn't smurfed in stone. The movie will be called "Get Smurfy," not "The Smurfs 3," as we all thought a while back. The singer Demi Lovato, not Katy Perry, who voiced Smurfette in The Smurfs 1 and 2, will be voicing Smurfette. I like the animation for "Get Smurfy" better than the animation in the previous movies. It's the 3rd animation the smurfs' motion pictures have been in!

Hank Azaria discusses the story behind the third Smurfs movie during an interview...

While doing press for Smurfs 2, actor Hank Azaria (who plays the Smurf-hating wizard Gargamel) revealed that the next movie will reveal the origins story behind the Smurfs, and goes on to explain what he believes really happened to Gargamel in the past.

"I hear that the third movie, if there is one, might actually deal with the genuine origin of how all these characters ran into each other way back when."

"I imagine Gargamel having attended a Harry Potter-like academy in his youth for wizards, and was sort of the black sheep - first of all, wasn't very good. Second of all, he must have thought the way to really be a powerful magician is to grab these Smurfs and grab their essence and everybody must have said, 'You're an idiot. Don't waste your life doing that.' And he's been trying his whole life to prove them wrong."
 
Posted by Century Smurf (Member # 5741) on 02-01-2016 03:17 PM:
 
I remember that in the comic book "The Smurfnapper" Gargamel is reading the recipe for a formula that calls for a smurf. This is when he learns about the smurfs and since then he has been hunting smurfs without success, though he has come close before!
 
Posted by Squeaky Smurf (Member # 2416) on 02-02-2016 08:27 AM:
 
That's right, Century. And besides going on to catch the Smurfs, Gargamel turned to hate them after they rescued the Smurf he had captured. He never conformed to be defeated by small creatures that he would consider so insignificant. As he always considered himself a great wizard, it was a terrible blow to his pride. [Gargamel]

Squeaky, my point was that Gargamel did not learn about the smurfs in sorcery school, because he was already a wizard when he found out about them in a book. So, unfortunately, the new movie, like many others, will not be true to the book. But I'm still looking forward to Get Smurfy!

Well, I have good news and bad news...

The good news is that we finally have an official plot summary for The Smurfs: The Lost Village. Here it is, according to IMDb:

"In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting race through the Forbidden Forest leading to the discovery of the biggest secret in Smurf history."

It seems that in the new movie Smurfette (voiced by Demi Lovato) finds a map, which is probably depicting the mysterious "Lost Village" in the title of the movie. This lost village is probably not Smurf Village, but a different one that the smurfs will embark on a quest through the forest to find.

The bad news is that the release date has been postponed even further. The movie that was originally supposed to come out in 2015 now is planned to be released not on March 31st, 2017, but on April 7, 2017! This is not much later, thank smurfness, but I thought I had better inform everysmurf of the new release date.
 
Posted by VicGeorge2010 (Member # 300) on 09-26-2016 12:49 PM:
 
A delay of only a week is hardly bad news. At least it isn't being pushed any farther into the year as to be like a dangling carrot that the production studio likes to dangle in front of everybody's nose to tease them. Having it being delayed up to two years past its original intended release year is enough of an annoyance. Hopefully the end result will be worth the delay.

Yesterday on the UK Smurf Collector Club's Facebook there was a leaked promotional image for "Smurfs: The Lost Village" featuring two new female Smurfs alongside Papa Smurf and the gang. Today that post was taken down and I wonder if it's because the post shouldn't have been there. One of the folks at Sony Pictures Animation is now part of the group and maybe he said that post was a no-no. [Frown]

Unfortunately the damage is done. Since last night I've been doodling away on what may or may not be two new additions to the Smurf family. I'm giving them the fan names Sunflower (Sunny) and Violet until their official names are released.
A fanfic/fancomic story is coalescing too, with Grandpa, Hefty, Vexy and Brainy on an expedition to a jagged, stony mountain. Grandpa falls from a loose ledge, lands safely in a bed of flowers that seemed to sense his falling and rescued him, sprains his leg, and is tended to by Violet when he comes to. He discovers the so-called Lost Village, as do the other Smurfs in his group when they come down the mountain to search for him. Led by a female Smurf named Sophia (nicknamed Mama Smurf), the village refuses to let the visitors go out of fear they will be exposed to danger. When a wildfire threatens their village and the entire forest, both groups of Smurfs set aside their animosity to save each other.

I don't know who posted and took down that image on Facebook, but it put me on a creative hurricane that I can't stop! [Smurfette] [Sassette Smurfling] [Smile]

Or, maybe that leaked image was a red herring.

SMURFS STATUE INSTALLATION
Two new friends are now welcoming employees and visitors to the Sony Pictures Animation campus: one-of-a-kind, five-foot statues of Papa and Smurfette were created by hand and set up last week under the supervision of Smurfs: The Lost Village character designer and in-house Smurfs expert Patrick Mate. He made sure the Smurfs’ eye circles were exactly the way they are in our fully animated film, and Papa’s brows positioned perfectly on top of his hat to reflect the brand new CG design of the characters which takes its inspiration from the original Peyo comic books.
Papa and Smurfette now stand at the entrance of Sony Pictures Animation’s campus as a friendly, daily reminder of the fun new character design of our movie which is a complete departure from the look of the two hybrid Smurfs movies.
Check back soon for updates on a brand new trailer debuting later this month!

Hey guys. You know that new Smurfs comics are coming out from Papercutz, right? Well, I heard that there's going to be a comic coming out on March 7,2017 that's about the Smurfs:The Lost Village movie. Here's what the stories will be about:

There will be a fun story about dragonflies in our SMURFS THE VILLAGE BEHIND THE WALL graphic novel. There are five stories in all. One about Clumsy Smurf, one about Hefty Smurf in a competition, another about a new creature called a Growler, and another right before the movie happens, and lastly, and a story about Brainy Smurf exploring the new village!

And there will be more news after the trailer comes out on 11/21/2016. Stay tuned for more news.

Happy Thanksgiving from Team Smurf!
If you haven’t seen the new American and international trailers for SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE, make sure to join the over 10 million people who checked it out already and head over to Sony Pictures Animation’s YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/sonyanimation. A new Thanksgiving video from our favorite blue friends was also just posted there!

Special treat: scene-stealer Nosey Smurf is voiced by none other than the film’s director, Kelly Asbury. A fun side job through a very busy production schedule, as we are entering the last stretch with animation wrapping next week, and the filmmakers heading to London next month to record its score with composer Christopher Lennertz at the world famous Abbey Road Studios.

We are thankful for all of our followers and our amazing crew, happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones!

The hype's more real! I just found this summary of the Village Behind The Wall graphic novel:

DEC161840
(W) Peyo, Delporte (A/CA) Peyo, Delporte
An all-new SMURFS movie hits theaters in April and the Smurfs will never be the same! Our all-new graphic novel features five new stories that explore the secrets of the Lost Village and the other mysteries revealed in the film.
Who are the strange creatures who inhabit the Lost Village? What do they eat (hopefully not Smurfs!)? Why do they seem so similar to our diminutive blue heroes? And are they also afraid of Gargamel...or something worse? Everything will be revealed in this Smurftastic new volume!

The deal with their faces is that they're nervous and maybe a little scared about these new creatures/Smurfs behind the masks, and also Gargamel, that's why. [Smile]

Posted by VicGeorge2010 (Member # 300) on 12-18-2016 01:05 PM:
 
I'd be apprehensive over a Smurfs CGI cartoon feature that makes them look too cartoony, too plasticky, or just too much in the "uncanny valley" of realism. The CGI Smurfs from the live-action film series are just perfect enough for the Empath: The Luckiest Smurf film and series if one should be made of my stories, since my aim is to make the audience just as unnerved as Empath at meeting the Smurfs for the first time in years. A cartoony approach would just to make the whole experience too unrelatable.

This just in! I have a little information to share, but at the same time, I also can't give away too much. Here's the first bit. It's of one of the new Smurfettes. Her name is Smurflily, or just Lily.

Smurflily is smart, sassy, and practical. She can be outspoken and at times disagrees with the rest of Smurfy Grove, but she always wants what is best for her sisters.
 
Posted by Tatiana (Member # 6114) on 12-29-2016 03:13 PM:
 
SHE IS SO ADORABLE!! [Big Grin] After seeing she does have a lily flower in her hat, perhaps the Smurfettes naming custom is for the flowers and plants in their hats?

A village full of Smurfettes is the stuff of fanfictions. Be great if that was actually made canon in the comic books.
 
Posted by Tatiana (Member # 6114) on 01-01-2017 03:23 PM:
 
Actually there is going to be an official comic book inspired by the newest movie and the Smurfettes of Smurfy Grove are going to appear in it! [Big Grin] So the movie itself might very well be canon and Thierry Culliford (Peyo's son) promised back in 2008 that there will be other Smurfettes as well! :3

Another interview where Meghan Trainor talks about her new song, "I'm a Lady". [Smurfette] [Smurfette] [Smurfette] [Smurfette]

Meghan Trainor Readies “Smurfs” New Song “I’m A Lady”: “It’s Pretty Fire”, She Says
We may not be getting a new Meghan Trainor album until most likely the second semester of 2017 but that doesn't mean we won't be receiving new music from the Massachusetts star earlier than that date.

The "Bass" singer announced during a backstage interview at the KIIS FM 2016 Jingle Ball in Los Angeles last weekend that she had recorded a brand new song called "I'm A Lady" for the "Smurfs: The Lost Village" animated movie soundtrack. And since this film will be hitting theaters in April 2017, we can expect Meghan's new song to premiere in February or March!

On "I'm A Lady", Meghan said:

"It's an upbeat, "love yourself" woman anthem"
"It goes like..."'Cause I'm a lady...and then the BEAT DROPS!"
"It's pretty fire"

I'm just LIVING for her description of the song. Can't wait to hear it.

I'll let you guys know (or someone else will) when the official date for when the song comes out will be.

The one between Smurfette and Hefty is Smurfblossom. And the one sitting on the tree branch... I think I'll call her Smurfdaisy or Smurfviolet for now because it looks like she has either a daisy or a violet in her hat. Hope that answers your question. [Big Grin]

Actually alter ego is another way of meaning a very trusted friend. So maybe the Mama Smurf and Papa Smurf were close friends before the Smurfy Grove was lost?

"Alter ego" to me is commonly known as an alternate identity. Like how Superman's alter ego is Clark Kent.

First Look! Julia Roberts Joins Smurfs: The Lost Village — See Her Animated Character in Action!

Julia Roberts is looking very blue these days.

The Oscar winner has joined the cast of the upcoming animated comedy Smurfs: The Lost Village, PEOPLE can exclusively reveal — as the wise new character SmurfWillow.

“Smurfs are such a fun part of our animated culture,” Roberts tells PEOPLE. “They were popular when I was a child and they were popular when my kids were little. It’s fun to be part of such a sweet group that continues to entertain young people.”

The film, from Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation, already boasts a superstar vocal cast — including Demi Lovato as Smurfette, Mandy Patinkin as Papa Smurf, and Rainn Wilson as the evil wizard Gargamel.

True Blood‘s Joe Manganiello, 30 Rock‘s Jack McBrayer and Community’s Danny Pudi are on board, too — as Hefty Smurf, Brainy Smurf and Clumsy Smurf, respectively.

The story follows the Smurfs as they race Gargamel to find the mysterious Lost Village and uncover the biggest secret in Smurf history. Using a mysterious map as guidance, the adorable blue friends embark on a roller-coaster journey through the Forbidden Forest — filled with action, danger and more than a few laughs.

Smurfs: The Lost Village will also mark a return to animated films for Roberts, who previously voiced characters in the 2006 family films The Ant Bully and Charlotte’s Web.

"I am thrilled with Julia Roberts’ performance in Smurfs: The Lost Village,” director Kelly Asbury (Shrek 2) tells PEOPLE. “Julia brings to the role a sense of honesty and depth, thus helping to create truth to the reality of the entire story.”

Smurfs: The Lost Village director Kelly Asbury said how he "want[s] people to feel like they're in the world" when watching the film. [Smile]

Demi lovato said how being "extra animated" while voicing Smurfette reminded her of her Disney days. [Smurfette]

The perk of "being able to show up in her sweatpants" while voicing Smurfette was also "a plus" for Demi lovato. [Smurfette]

Joe Manganiello said that the fun of packing in a character so "Hefty" into something so small, which is "where a lot of the heart is." [Happy Smurf]

Lastly, they also said that Gordon Ramsay and Gabriel "fluffyguy" Iglesias will have special voice cameos as Baker and Jokey Smurf in SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE - out April 7! [Happy Smurf]

Smurfs: The Lost Village has added a series of high-profile actors to their voice cast, including Oscar winner Julia Roberts as SmurfWillow, the matriarch of the titular lost village and foil to Papa Smurf (the previously announced Mandy Patinkin). Other new voice cast members include the Fast and Furious' Michelle Rodriguez as SmurfStorm, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's Ellie Kemper as SmurfBlossom, and Modern Family's Ariel Winter as SmurfLily. Yes, Smurfette (voiced here by Demi Lovato) is no longer the only female Smurf in the world.

What you can do is copy and paste the image into Word (or Powerpoint).
Then, go google translate, and write on a piece of paper the individual translations.
Once in Word, then go to shapes, and fill in the little chat bubbles with the shapes and adjust the color.
Then chick text box and place it on the chat box (which is now plain white).
Then go and fill in the text bubbles with your translations.
After you finish that, save EACH INDIVIDUAL picture to Images.
Finally, all you have to do is go to Smurf Picture and File Upload, select you picture and post

Sadly no, I've been looking for other preview pages of the comic but haven't found any. Toonfish (Germany) usually puts them up a few weeks before the release. I don't know how Papercutz in the US does it. Also there has yet to be made an official announcement by LeLombard, the original publisher. The book is not yet listed on their website. Since the release of the comic book is only about a month away, I suppose more preview pages and information are coming soon. I'll keep looking

Yup, Storm is a real hothead and loves to smurf it into everyone's face. Something tells me that in these comic stories it's going to be her undoing. In her anger and pride she's going to smurf something really stupid that will put her and Smurfy Grove in danger, and the other Smurfs will have to bail her out. [Smurfette] [Wink]

Hey guys. Royal here. Check out this article I just found. Enjoy!

Source:
http://www.kidzworld.com/article/30494-demi-lovato-and-joe-manganiello-talk-smurfs-the-lost-village

Opening April 7th, Smurfs: The Lost Village is a fully-animated, new take on the little blue Smurfs you’ve seen for years. Smurfette (voice of Demi Lovato) ends up with a weird map that sets her and besties Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty (hunky Magic Mike and TV.’s “True Blood” actor Joe Manganiello) on an adventure through the Forbidden Forest, avoiding evil wizard Gargamel and other freaky creatures to find a lost village where they will discover the biggest secret in all of Smurf history!

 -
Demi Lovato (Smurfette) and Joe Manganiello (Hefty) at the event

In a preview interview at Sony Pictures in Hollywood, Demi and Joe talked personal history with Smurfs, how they are like their characters and the fun of recording their voices.
Q: Joe were you into Smurfs as a kid?
Joe: I was, yeah. Every Saturday morning my brother and I watched “The Smurfs”. I remember I had some of those vinyl stickers that looked like a Smurf village and you could pull them off, stick them on and re-stick them. I remember having that. Yeah, I remember seeing every single episode growing up.

 -
Do we have a clue?

Q: Demi, you weren’t as familiar with the Smurfs. How did you learn about them in order to play Smurfette, one of the most famous of all?
Demi: I think by just asking my parents (everybody laughs) and looking up Smurfs videos on YouTube. That’s how I did my new age homework.
Q: What shared connection do you and Smurfette have?
Demi: I think we’re both brave and we’re both curious when it comes to going after things that we want to figure out. We’re both driven.

 -
Demi with her character Smurfette

Q: Demi you’ve done many things in your career from acting to performing on stage to judging on a music competition show. Now, for the first time, you’re doing an animated voice. How does that compare?
Demi: There’s an element of consciousness when you are on stage or in front of a camera. You want to make sure you’ve got good angles and what not but when you’re doing a voice-over, you can be extra animated and show up in your sweat pants if you want to. So, that was a plus for me. I loved not having to go through hair and make-up. But being extra animated kind of reminded me of my Disney days when I played such an over-the-top character on the sitcom I was on (“Sonny with a Chance”). It was similar but also had its differences.
Q: Joe, I’m sure it’s weird playing a character named Hefty but do you have to make a face to get that voice like if you have to say a line like “I’m punching us outa here!”, that’s not just Joe. There’s some extra oomph there isn’t there?
Joe: Yeah but you’re not really conscious of it. You’re just going for it. He’s really fun because he’s this big (indicates tiny) but he’s this strong (indicates a lot) so I think it was fun kind of packing all of this tall (big) strength into this little guy which is where the comedy and the heart comes from.

 -
Clumsy, Brainy, Hefty and Smurfette in the Forbidden Forest.

Q: (To Director Kelly Asbury) Will Demi have a song in the film?
Kelly: Uh, no. Chris Lennertz did our score and Meghan Trainor has done a song for the end credits. The movie is stitched together emotionally with song moments but not characters visually singing.

 -
Smurfette, Hefty and pals get a surprise in the forest.

Q: Demi, how does Smurfette feel about meeting other female Smurfs?
Demi: I think Smurfette is definitely excited and she’s curious at meeting other characters who are similar to herself after being in a world where everyone has their own identity. It is really exciting.

I really thought this is how it would be. But you know Hollywood Producers and their revisionist "visions".

That model of CGI Smurf would have worked better in an all-CGI feature than in a live-action/CGI feature because it would stick out like a sore thumb, making it look too obvious that it is a CGI creation.

I did some translating and I gotta say it's much more easier to translate German,

Basically it's the girls becoming more curious about the boys' village and SmurfBlossom went first in asking about it during their walk around their village.

Here is a fanfic idea that smurfed in my head based on the fan translation of the comic story between Hefty and Smurfstorm, which plays on the latter's apparent hot temper and stubborn streak:

Smurfstorm in a Teapot - The Smurfs from both villages team up to collect wild smurfberries for their respective clans. The short-tempered, aggressive Smurfstorm brags that anysmurf Hefty can do, she can do better. Never one to turn down a challenge, Hefty takes Stormy on in a series of wild games that the other Smurfs find ridiculous and distracting. Stormy has secretly rigged the games in her favor so that she can tease and irritate Hefty when he loses each time. Hefty finally has enough of this abuse and returns to berry picking. Stormy claims victory in front of a large bulb plant (similar to the "Smurfs and the Smurfettes" cover), which grabs her by her feet and pulls her in. When Hefty tries to rescue her, Storm stubbornly yells that she'd rather smurf down in a smurf of glory than to ever be saved by a boy. And in that stubborn pride, the plant swallows her whole and smurfs out a big burp. Smurfette marvels "Wow, what a fighter." Smurflily rolls her eyes and laments "What an IDIOT!" [Big Grin]

The Smurfs run to their elders for help. Smurfwillow replies that the plant, known in Smurfy Grove as a Smurfcatcher, is easily provoked and dangerously aggressive. Papa Smurf doesn't know what can be done without endangering other Smurfs in the process. Grandpa Smurf, however, believes the Smurfcatcher is just like a similar ornery weed he encountered centuries ago and suggests an unusual solution.

Harmony and Vexy Smurf approach the Smurfcatcher from a safe distance. Harmony plays a loud off-key tune while Vexy belts out a high-pitched, screeching rendition of "Rock a Bye Baby". The Smurfcatcher suddenly relaxes, makes happy noises and opens up its petals, spitting out Smurfstorm all covered in a disgusting clear slime. To which Vexy sings mocking "And out will smurf Stormy, slimy and all!"

Grandpa explains to everysmurf that what the girls in Smurfy Grove call a Smurfcatcher, he knows as a "Dischordant Screech Lily". It relaxes and calms down when it hears loud, off-key music. When Stormy protests she was about to break out when the flower opened up, Smurfwillow tells her that the clear slime meant she was already being digested when she was being rescued... to which Stormy comically faints in shock.

The lesson of the story is that you should treat others the same way you want to be treated, and never be unsmurfy with others just to make yourself look good. It may come back to bite you in the smurf.

"Smurfstorm in a Teapot" is obviously based on the new comic story where Stormy and Hefty face off in a similar battle of the sexes, and the title is a reference to the term "tempest in a teapot". From what I've seen in the Lost Village comics previewed on this board, my smurfy hunch is that Smurfstorm is like Rainbow Dash from "My Little Pony": hot-tempered, boastful, competitive, a prankster and always smurfing her big mouth into disaster. We'll see if Stormy really is that fiery in the movie. [Smurfette]

Did you know that Ariel Winter will be in the new Smurfs movie?! She is!

The Modern Family star will be voicing a smurf named SmurfLily and she looks so badass!

We mean, look at her with her bow and arrow, just waiting for the chance for one of the other new smurfs to say something weird so she can let it go. Love her already!

"So excited to join my friends in Smurfs: The Lost Village! See SmurfLily in action April 7th!" Ariel tweeted out to her fans, announcing the big news last month.

Smurfs: The Lost Village is the first, fully animated movie in the franchise. The flick will follow 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.

Ariel is also pictured below leaving lunch with a friend in Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon (February 1).

Thanks, Tatiana! In my fan art, Nanny Smurf is the first-ever female Smurf, born during an unusual pink moon rather than a blue one. Her Papa Smurf long desired a daughter like the ones he observed with human families, and it was a wish come true. The 500-year imprisonment in the evil Castle Captor ("Lost Smurf" episode from the TV series, 1988) is part of that storyline.

As far as I can guess, it may be that the girls in the Lost Village were created en masse centuries before by some magic spell resulting in Smurfette counterparts to the Smurfs of their day. They weren't accepted as real Smurfs by the originals, so they went away and made their own village in the hopes of one day reuniting with the rest of the Smurf family. (If this is actually part of the "Lost Village" movie story, I apologize for any spoilers. I am only guessing from all the internet chatter I've read since January.)

My drawing may have Smurfwillow introduced by Papa Smurf to Grandpa and Nanny in the Smurf Village. As of now, my idea is that Grandpa is beyond overjoyed to learn he has a daughter. Nanny says she always sensed deep in her smurf that there were more girls than herself all these centuries, and her hunch was right all along.

Like the look of the Smurf Village in that test video. It's certainly what I'm looking for as far as how I would want it to appear in an Empath: The Luckiest Smurf feature. That being said, the CGI Vanity from the live-action films didn't look too out of place with that kind of Smurf Village.

The director of Shrek 2 and Gnomeo & Juliet works blue on the first all-animated Smurfs movie.

Last month Den of Geek attended a presentation at Sony Pictures Animation for several of the studio’s upcoming animated films, including Smurfs: The Lost Village, The Emoji Movie, the faith-based The Star, Hotel Transylvania 3 and the animated Spider-Man feature (which you can find more on here). First out of the chute on April 7 is Smurfs: The Lost Village, the third feature starring the little blue creatures but the first to go all-animated, with no live action and no connection to the first two movies.

In other words, Smurfs: The Lost Village is more or less a reboot of the beloved children’s franchise, a description that director Kelly Asbury (Shrek 2) has no problem with. “I don't know why people don't like that word, I guess it's overused perhaps,” says Asbury when we sit down with him in a SPA conference room after the presentation, which featured clips and/or production art from all five films. “Let's just say that this is a re-envisioning. We are restoring Peyo's vision in dimensional film form, so maybe it's a restoration of a franchise. Visually it certainly is. We did want it to be as much a new version as we possibly could. We wanted to make it stand alone. It's not Part 3, it's a freestanding film.”

 -

Peyo is the pen name of Pierre Culliford, the Belgian comics artist who created the Smurfs, known in French as Les Schtroumpfs, way back in 1958. The tiny humanoids have expanded over the decades into a billion-dollar juggernaut encompassing TV, toys, video games and much more. Sony’s two feature films, released in 2011 and 2013, were met with scathing reviews; while The Smurfs grossed a very healthy $564 million worldwide, The Smurfs 2 dropped to $347 million, prompting the studio to scrap a proposed third live-action/animated hybrid in favor of a fully animated story with no human characters or actors (save for the voices provided by a cast that includes Demi Lovato, Mandy Patinkin, Joe Manganiello, Rainn Wilson, Julia Roberts and more).

For Asbury, going back to the source -- Peyo’s original artwork -- provided him with the inspiration he needed on the film. “I watched the live-action hybrid movies and the Hanna-Barbera (TV) version, which were really the only introduction that I had of the Smurfs when I started this project,” he recalled. “Then I started looking at the original. I went back and read up on Peyo and started really getting a look at this world and I thought, ‘Gosh, there's so much wonderful shape-language and wonderful artistry in what he did.’ He was a contemporary of a lot of the artists at Disney who were making Pinocchio and Snow White and he really was in their age bracket. I just thought that nothing had really ever fully reflected the beauty of what he did, and the shapes. So I wanted as much as possible to capture what he did.”

 -

The decision to ditch a third film in the initial series and go all-animated was already made by the studio by the time Asbury came aboard the picture. “The studio had decided they needed to do a film that was completely animated,” he said. “They wanted something that was broader in scope and able to be more imaginative, which animation offered. When I came onto it, I don't think the decision had been made yet to go as far back as Peyo to really recreate that, but I looked at the Peyo comic books and I said, ‘Guys, this is what we ought to be doing.’ It wasn't very hard to win them over to do that. The minute we started building these characters and turning them around in three dimensions, and they really did look like Peyo, everyone was very excited about it.”

Perhaps the biggest deviation from Peyo’s work is the inclusion -- a sensible one in 2017 -- of more female Smurfs in the story after decades of Smurfette (voiced by Lovato) being the only one. “The biggest question that everyone always has about the Smurfs is, ‘Why is Smurfette the only girl?’” explains Asbury. “There really is no clear explanation for that; I think later in his comics, Peyo might have introduced a couple more but they were never very popular. We decided, okay, what if there were other girls? What would it do? Would it be mind-blowing to these Smurfs? It would be mind-blowing to even Smurfette, that there's another village out there, and there's girls living there too. It would be a whole new thing. The dramatic impact of that was exciting.”

 -

Peyo died in 1992, but his children still control the franchise and Asbury wanted to make sure they stayed involved in the process of making Smurfs: The Lost Village. “They weren't involved on a daily basis, but certainly as we designed this movie and as the story came into focus, we wanted to make sure that we didn't break any of the rules that the franchise has established over the years,” he says. “One example is, the Smurfs can only eat Smurfberries. They can eat Smurfberry pie, Smurfberry sandwiches, all that, but it's always Smurfberry-related food. I didn't know that, that's just one example. Smurfette can be the only blonde; if there's going to be another girl, Smurfette's the only one that can be blonde. We just wanted to be sure we honored certain things. I think they're very happy with the result. We were very sensitive to what they wanted and didn't want. It was a great relationship.”

Asbury says his experience on Smurfs: The Lost Village was so positive that he would “love to make more of these,” adding that he’s “fallen in love with the characters.” After spending three-plus years in the world of the Smurfs, you might think he would be tired, but after 34 years as a story artist, director and writer, he’s gotten used to the large chunks of time that animated films can take up. “Whenever I start one, I always say, ‘Now it's my freshman year of high school again, and now I have to go through high school.’ My stepson went through college during this exact time that I've been making this movie, freshman year to senior, and when you look at it in that perspective it's always a little bit mind-boggling.” But he adds, “I do enjoy it. I don't mind the length of time. It's a bunch of short-term goals.”

Smurfs: The Lost Village is out in theaters April 7.

Smurfs: The Lost Village Roundtable Interview Clips

 -

Recently, 411mania had the privilege of attending Sony Pictures Animation’s Feature Slate event, where the studio provided an early look at its upcoming animated feature offerings in the coming years. One such feature included the new CG animated feature starring the lovable creatures known as The Smurfs. Originating in comic form by the artist Peyo, The Smurfs evolved into a popular long-running franchise that encompassed animated cartoons and more recently, live action films. Smurfs: The Lost Village brings the lovable blue critters back to strictly animation in a new adventure where a group of Smurf heroes venture into a forbidden forest, where they discover a tribe comprised only of female Smurfs.

Sony Pictures shared an overall breakdown of the feature from director Kelly Asbury, along with some select footage of the film. One such scene included the Smurfs getting trapped in a cave and separated and humorously trying to find their way out. Some other footage showed the Smurfs meeting the tribe of female Smurfs for the first time. Later that day, 411mania took part in a roundtable session with the film’s stars Demi Lovato (Smurfette) and Joe Manganiello (Hefty Smurf), along with director Kelly Asbury.

Roundtable Interview Clips With Demi Lovato and Joe Manganiello


Sony has found its new Smurfette in Demi Lovato (Sonny With a Chance) and Hefty Smurf in Joe Manganiello (True Blood, Spider-Man). During the roundtable interview session, 411mania had the chance to ask about creating their voices and playing the roles for such an iconic, classic franchise.

Jeffrey Harris: At any point did either of you get to sing or chant the Smurfs theme song, which is probably very easy to remember?

Joe Manganiello: La la la la la la la, la la la la la. I grew up with the show. Do you know that song?

Demi Lovato: I don’t know the song.

Joe Manganiello: See? She’s a lot younger than me.

Demi Lovato: It’s familiar. It’s definitely familiar.

Joe Manganiello: I’m sure I probably did during some session when we were recording, but I don’t think it’s in the movie.

Jeffrey Harris: In creating your own personal voices for Smurfette and Hefty, did the crew provide you with any reference material to get you in that mode of playing them?

Joe Manganiello: Well, I saw all the artwork in my initial meeting. They were kind of pitching me the character. I saw all of that. Also being familiar with the show, I knew who Hefty was supposed to be. I think in my mind, I was thinking this big, strong guy who’s *this* big and packing all that. I think for me, the character came out of that. And thinking about juxtaposing that type of brawniness with the heart, so there was kind of two polar extremes to play off of.

Demi Lovato: There weren’t any references shown to me, but I kind of just played with a little bit. I raised my voice higher and made her sound a bit younger. I gave her a lot of energy, so that was pretty much what I did with that. I didn’t want to stray too much from my regular voice I guess because I was a little self-conscious.

Jeffrey Harris: So, let’s talk franchise. Are you on board for a trilogy or TV specials at all?

Joe Manganiello: I’m in for as long as they’ll have me.

Demi Lovato: Same.

Roundtable Interview Clips With Director Kelly Asbury

Kelly Asbury has been a force in the animation industry going back to the 1980s as an artist and animator for Walt Disney Animation. More recently, he’s served as the director of Shrek 2 and Gnomeo and Juliet. Asbury is a longtime fan of Peyo’s The Smurf. For this animated feature, he opted for a look that was much closer into the visual style of Peyo’s original comics, bringing the lovable blue Smurfs back to basics. He also reiterated that the Smurfs also only eat Smurf Berries.

Jeffrey Harris: Do any of the Smurfs at any point in the film sing the classic theme song?

Kelly Asbury: Yes. I will not tell you to what context, but yes they will. It’s in there. It’s in the movie. It’s definitely [in the movie].

Jeffrey Harris: Having been an integral part of Disney’s original animated motion picture of Beauty and the Beast, the first animated feature to receive a Best Picture nomination, what are your thoughts on Disney remaking the film in live action?

Kelly Asbury: Right. As with the other films they’re doing that are live action, when I first heard years ago that they were doing these movies, I was disturbed by it. Now, actually I’m kind of excited about it. When I saw Jungle Book, and I don’t think they’re replacing the animated [versions]. They’re not obliterating them from memory. They’re very different, so it’s OK with me. I’m OK with that. I love Disney, so I’m fine.

Jeffrey Harris: Are you thinking about future installments at all? Do you have a Smurfs saga in mind?

Kelly Asbury: Like Lord of the Smurfs *Laughs*, or Harry Potter?

Jeffrey Harris: Well, these characters have been on many adventures together. Do you have any ideas on adventures the Smurfs could go on next time?

Kelly Asbury: Yes, I do. If I absolutely had my way, I would say, “Yes, we’re going to do it.” I hope that the studio sees the way to do that. My fingers are crossed, but that all depends on the success of this [movie]. I love these characters, and I don’t want to leave them yet. It’s like when you read Tom Sawyer, the next thing you want to do is pick up Huckleberry Finn. And then when you’re in Huckleberry Finn, you’re like, “No! They’re gone!” I feel that way about these characters.

Jeffrey Harris: Could your next project be a Ghostbusters animated movie? Since Sony has taken the Smurfs from live-action to an animated feature, would you be interested in doing something similar with the Ghostbusters franchise?

Kelly Asbury: I have not been approached about that. I don’t have a specific next project. I’m talking about a few things. We’ll see what’s next. I think if you asked me to speak from the heart, it would be to make a sequel to this. I like this quite a lot, and I like working for Sony. Working for Sony and Kristine Belson has been a rewarding experience. She really trusts the filmmakers in a way that some studios don’t.

Jeffrey Harris: Can we expect any type of traditional animated sequences in this film, perhaps in the credits or the opening?

Kelly Asbury: No. This is fully CG, 3D and the 3D stereo-optical side of it is amazing. Go see it in 3D.

Jeffrey Harris: Who gets the credit for the shutter-bug/lady bug gag?

Kelly Asbury: That I have to give to two people. One is our writer Pamela Ribon came up with this idea in our script with a bug. She described it. The design of it I have to give to story artist Steve Fonti. So all of it is the melding of two ideas. I would say it’s the brainchild of Pam. When we read it, it was like, “OK. We got to do it.”

[PICS] Meghan Trainor Is Working Hard for Her Much Awaited Single “I’m a Lady”

By : Ashmeet Bagga - February 10, 2017
Meghan Trainor is Working Hard for Single I m A Lady

It looks like Meghan Trainor is all set to release her latest single from the soundtrack to Smurfs: The Lost Village. Meghan Trainor’s latest Instagram post is about the “I’m a Lady” music video.

Although Meghan Trainor won’t be releasing a new album anytime soon, she will be treating us with a new single. If you take a look at Meghan Trainor’s Instagram account, you will see that the 23-year-old singer is all prepared to shoot her “I’m a Lady” music video.

Meghan looks beautiful wearing a tiara with her hair down. Undoubtedly, the singer looks like a princess. We have been waiting for Meghan Trainor’s “I’m a Lady” since we first heard about it, and are excited for her video to be released.

Her new song will be featured on the soundtrack for Smurfs: The Lost Village. The film will not be out until April, so we can hopefully expect her to release the music video sometime in the next couple months. When asked about the song, Meghan said, “It’s an upbeat, ‘love yourself’ woman anthem … It goes like… ‘Cause I’m a lady…and then the beat drops! … It’s pretty fire.”

Meghan was definitely looking forward to recording a song for the upcoming film, “I love The Smurfs and was honored when they asked me to write a song for this new movie. I was especially excited I wrote the whole thing in one evening!” With so much news surrounding the song, we hope she releases it soon!

My fan comic "Smurfstorm in a Teapot" is ruined. [Frown] Hawaii is being pounded by a brutal winter storm and the rain soaked my backpack on my way to work, turning my sketchpad into a soggy pulp. The thumbnail sketches for "Teapot" had to be thrown away along with half the contents of my backpack. [Embarrassed]

I now have to redraw those sketches on new, dry sheets of paper. Ironically, my laptop was in the same backpack and it stayed dry as a bone. I'm typing this from said laptop right now.

CS Interview: Explore The Lost Village with Smurfs Director Kelly Asbury

Smurfs director Kelly Asbury takes you inside The Lost Village!

This April, Sony Pictures Animation is offering audiences a chance to meet the Smurfs again for the very first time. Inspired by the original Peyo comic strips, Smurfs: The Lost Village, promises a fully animated adventure with director Kelly Asbury at the helm. A three-decade animation veteran, Kelly Asbury’s past features have included hits like Shrek 2, Gnomeo and Juliet and Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. In the below conversation with CS, Asbury discusses his approach to The Lost Village and explains how the new film will offer something that is simultaneously very familiar and unlike anything fans have seen before.

Smurfs: The Lost Village features a voice cast that includes Demi Lovato as Smurfette, Rainn Wilson as the evil Gargamel, Joe Manganiello as Hefty, Jack McBrayer as Clumsy, Danny Pudi as Brainy, Mandy Patinkin as Papa Smurf, and Michelle Rodriguez, Ellie Kemper, Ariel Winter and Julia Roberts as SmurfStorm, SmurfBlossom, SmurfLily and SmurfWillow, respectively. The voice cameos will include Gordon Ramsay as Baker, Gabriel Iglesias as Jokey, Tituss Burgess as Vanity, Jeff Dunham as Farmer, Jake Johnson as Grouchy, and Kelly Asbury himself as Nosey.

CS: Where did your relationship with “The Smurfs” begin?

Kelly Asbury: That’s an interesting thing. They didn’t really come to America until the ’80s and I was not aware of them before then. But I was an adult in the ’80s. I was in my 20s. I actually applied at Hanna-Barbera to work on “The Smurfs” when I got laid off for a brief period of time from Disney. I didn’t get the job. That was my first introduction to Smurfs. Because I didn’t have kids, I didn’t know a lot about them. I knew of them and I had seen the live-action films. I knew enough when I came on to go, “Okay, I know what Smurfs are,” but I didn’t realize quite the universe that they encompassed and I certainly didn’t know how popular they were around the world for years prior. They were hugely popular for like 30 years prior. I had a lot to learn and I did my research. Now I think I know everything there is to know, but I may still be surprised.

CS: How did the Lost Village become the focal point for the story?

Kelly Asbury: What we found is that the biggest question people ask is, “Why is she the only girl?” There’s no real answer as to why Peyo chose to make them all boys. They were just Smurfs. I don’t think he really thought about it. My hunch is that he probably got some letters that said, “Where’s the girl?” He created a girl, but he wanted to find an intriguing way to do that. The whole Gargamel creating her thing is great. It’s so intriguing and we do depict that to some degree in our movie. It helps us because, if we didn’t do that and she was just this girl in the scenario, we’d just have the same question. It would feel like a loose end. Yeah, interesting movie, but why was she the only girl? So once we had her as the only girl, we asked the question, “What would happen if the Smurfs encountered other girls?” What would she do? What would they do? What would the girls do? It opened the field up and a lot of it evolved from that sort of impetus of what would happen if, all this time, there was another village of Smurfs out there and no one knew about it. It would change everything. That was a big part of it.

 -

CS: Because Peyo designed the Smurfs for 2D, I’m curious to know if there were any unexpected challenges in capturing the right look in 3D.

Kelly Asbury: There are tricks we’re doing to get around that. Smurf hats, for instance, look strange if you look at them head on. We devised a way that the Smurf hat is always three quarter. No matter what we’re doing, the hats are always three quarter. That’s a little trick that CGI allows you to do. It keeps that appeal. But the Smurfs were built and designed in a manner that’s very similar to the Pogo comic strip or even Mickey Mouse. Peyo was a contemporary of all those artists who worked at Disney and Walt Kelly, who did Pogo. It makes sense that he would have that same thinking about almost baby proportions. For the way they move, we were able to look at some old cartoons. We watched some Mickey Mouse cartoons and just looked at the shape language. It informed a lot.

CS: Smurfs famously use the word “Smurf” quite a bit in their vocabulary. What was your rule for finding the right balance there?

Kelly Asbury: We didn’t want to do too much of it, because it does get annoying. While it’s a big part of the language in the comic, it does wear on you. It’s in there, because it is important, but we kept it to a minimum. It’s a joke that works for a while. I think it’s fun for kids, but we had to find our breaking point.

CS: How did the central team of Brainy, Clumsy, Hefty and Smurfette come together?

Kelly Asbury: We wanted a good character dynamic. We figure Smurfette was determined and is sort of the leader of this team. She’s the one that’s going to go do it and we wanted a team to help her. She needed strong protection, so Hefty is there for that. He kind of has a crush on Smurfette, so he’s going to be by her side. Clumsy looks up to Hefty, but he’s slow so he slows everyone down. Then there’s Brainy, who’s the brains of the outfit, and he navigates. The four of them made a great dynamic team, just like Dorothy and her three cohorts. It’s not the same dynamic, but it does have the same sense of four people who are together on an adventure. It’s about what they face along the way and about how they thwart their enemy and wind up getting something they never expected. More than they ever expected.

CS: You showed off an underground tunnel sequence that had a lot of fun style to it. Where did that originate?

Kelly Asbury: I’m a lover of the great adventure films of the 1980s. “Goonies,” “E.T.”, “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” “Star Wars.” I wanted to create a world that presented the Smurfs with obstacles and challenges and really put them in a fish out of water situation but also make them very active in getting out of their situation. Make them really the central characters. That was part of the impetus of it. That scene with the tunnels came about because of Bryan Andrews, one of our story artists who does amazing work. He has worked on “Iron Man” and “Samurai Jack.” He took what was in the script, a paragraph that our writer came up with. It was just something like, “The Smurfs get lost in some tunnels and they have to get out. They encounter some bunnies who end up releasing them.” He took it from there and boarded those shots. That was our first sequence that got finished. It kind of did inform our look for the rest of the movie. The first layout sequence usually does. We go, “Okay, here’s what we’re going to do with the camera.” It just sort of evolved from there. That sequence was very fun to work on.

 -

CS: There’s also an appearance by some glowing bunny rabbits.

Kelly Asbury: Our writer, Pam Ribon, came up the idea that they encounter some glowing bunnies. We just took it from there. It’s directly from her script.

CS: When you have something completely original like that, is there a process by which you give it that Peyo style?

Kelly Asbury: Our character designer Patrick Mate is from France. He grew up drawing The Smurfs. He can draw them as well as Peyo. In fact, Véronique Culliford saw his drawings and cried. She said, “They look just like my dad’s.” We knew we needed a rabbit, but we needed one that looked like how Peyo would do it. He researched. There were rabbits. Every bug, every single thing in this movie is drawn from actual designs somewhere in the Peyo world. Every leaf. Every blade of grass. Everything is taken from the way Peyo would have done it.

CS: Because the film is ultimately going to play for global audiences, do you need to consider how Smurfs represent different things in different countries?

Kelly Asbury: Not so much what they represent, but we do want to make sure the humor isn’t lost. We don’t want to have totally US-oriented humor. We tried to be careful with that. We avoided signage anywhere in the picture. Obviously, other countries will dub different voices in, but we wanted to be able to turn the sound off and still get what the story is. Visually, you can still understand the thrust of it. I hope!

1. Demi Lovato and Smurfette [Smurfette]
 -

"She doesn't take ‘no' from anybody, especially Papa Smurf," the singer says. "She's a strong, independent lady Smurf. Girl power!"

2. Joe Manganiello and Hefty Smurf
 -

"Hefty is the coolest, strongest Smurf in Smurf Village," Manganiello says. "When he's not working on his muscles, he's out Smurfboarding with his best buds or wandering in the Lost Village."

3. Ariel Winter and SmurfLily
 -

"SmurfLily is smart and practical, but she's full of creativity too," the Modern Family star says. "SmurfLily is who you call if you have a problem to solve."

4. Danny Pudi and Brainy Smurf
 -

"Brainy's the whiz kid on Team Smurf. He's always trying to figure out how to solve a problem. He can get hyper-focused at times, but he has a very good heart and he does it for his friends."

5. Michelle Rodriguez and SmurfStorm
 -

"Smurf Storm is a handful," Rodriquez says. "She's fierce and totally protective of her fellow Smurfs, her team. They're her family. She'll do whatever it takes to take care of them."

6. Ellie Kemper and SmurfBlossom
 -

"Smurf Blossom gets very excited about everything, and I actually get pretty excited about things in real life," Kemper says. "I channeled my inner cheerleader—I was a cheerleader in ninth grade and SmurfBlossom is definitely the cheerleader of her village."

7. Rainn Wilson and Gargamel [Gargamel]
 -

"It was super-fun to make Gargamel not a typical villain, but just the right measure of dastardly-ness and silliness," the funny man says.

8. Jack McBrayer and Clumsy Smurf
 -

"He's such a good fella," McBrayer says. "The kind of guy you want on your team, so long as your team doesn't require hand-eye coordination or grace or ability—but if you need somebody with team spirit, Clumsy is your Smurf."

9. Mandy Patinkin and Papa Smurf [Smile]
 -

"Papa is the patriarch of the Smurfs—he really cares about each and every one of them," the Homeland actor says. "You might say he's Papa Bear—even a little overbearing at times—but he'll always be there for Team Smurf."

I'm A Lady lyrics

[Verse 1]
I talk with a mouth full (uh-huh)
But I couldn't be sweeter
Yep, I'm a cutie in my own way
I won't play, follow the leader

[Pre-Chorus]
And I don't look like them (But I ain't worried about it)
I don't talk like them (But I ain't worried about it)
But I know I'm a gem
I ain't worried about it, I ain't worried about it
'Cause I'm a lady

[Chorus]
'Cause I'm a lady
Come on! I'm a, I'm a lady
All my girls, show them you're a lady
Tell the world, say that you're proud to be a lady

[Verse 2]
I know I laugh too loud
And I might cry too much
To all those judgy eyes
I got a whole lotta love

[Pre-Chorus]
And I don't move like them (But I ain't worried about it)
I don't move like them (But I ain't worried about it)
I know I'm a gem
I ain't worried about it, I ain't worried about it
'Cause I'm a lady

[Chorus]
'Cause I'm a lady
Yeah, I'mma, I'm a lady
All my girls, show them you're a lady
Tell the world, say that you're proud to be a lady
All my girls, show them you're a lady
Tell the world, say that you're proud to be a lady

[Bridge]
And I'm pretty, pretty cute and I'm pretty smart
And when I break it down, it's a work of art
And if you feel the same, can you participate?
I wanna see you shake, I wanna hear you say
And I'm pretty, pretty cute and I'm pretty smart
And when I break it down, it's a work of art
And if you feel the same, can you participate?
I wanna see you shake, I wanna hear you say

[Chorus]
And I don't look like them
I don't talk like them
But I know I'm a gem
I ain't worried about it, I ain't worried about it
'Cause I'm a lady
And I don't move like them (But I ain't worried about it)
I don't move like them (But I ain't worried about it)
I know I'm a gem
I ain't worried about it, I ain't worried about it
'Cause I'm a lady

[Outro]
(Yeah) 'cause I'm a lady
(Hey yeah, hey yeah)
I'mma, I'mma lady
All my girls, show them you're a lady
Tell the world, say that you're proud to be a lady
All my girls, show them you're a lady
Tell the world, say that you're proud to be a lady

(Here's Meghan posing with Smurfmelody.)


MEGHAN TRAINOR RELEASES NEW SONG “I’M A LADY” FROM “SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE”

CULVER CITY, Calif., February 23, 2017 – GRAMMY® Award-winning superstar MEGHAN TRAINOR will release her new song “I’m a Lady” from Sony Pictures Animation’s upcoming film Smurfs: The Lost Village tomorrow on Epic Records worldwide. The accompanying music video will premiere next Friday, March 3.

Trainor also announced that she will be voicing one of the new characters from Smurfs: The Lost Village, SmurfMelody, in the fully animated film.

“I’m so excited to be singing ‘I’m a Lady’ for this movie,” said Trainor. “It’s a song that I love and am very proud of, and I can’t wait for the world to finally hear it! Getting to play a small part in the film with my character, SmurfMelody, makes this all the more exciting! So happy to be a part of the Smurfs family!!!”

In this fully animated, fresh new take on the Smurfs, 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! Directed by Kelly Asbury, the film is written by Stacey Harman and Pamela Ribon, based on the characters and works of Peyo. Produced by Jordan Kerner and Mary Ellen Bauder Andrews, the film features the voices of Demi Lovato as Smurfette, Rainn Wilson as Gargamel, Joe Manganiello as Hefty Smurf, Jack McBrayer as Clumsy Smurf, Danny Pudi as Brainy Smurf, Michelle Rodriguez as SmurfStorm, Ellie Kemper as SmurfBlossom, Ariel Winter as SmurfLily, with Mandy Patinkin as Papa Smurf and Julia Roberts as SmurfWillow.

[Smurfette]

It was a beautiful day in Smurf Village, but Smurfette's sad. She wants to have a smurfy purpose like the other smurfs. Hefty's strong, Brainy's smart, and Clumsy is, well, Clumsy.

But Smurfette's different. The evil wizard Gargamel had originally created her from a block of clay. He wanted Smurfette to be evil, but luckily, Papa had helped her become good. Ever since, Smurfette has wondered: what was she best at? What was her smurfy purpose?

French summary of the newest Smurfs comic. (Translated, of course.):

The Smurfs have just discovered the existence of a new community of Smurfs. Through new adventures, they will discover the surprising identity of these new friends. They will have much to learn from these, as well as from the strange and fantastic world in which they live.

Smurfy Grove? Sounds like a parody of PR's Angel Grove. Speaking of which, I'm doing a non-Smurf-related PR parody titles "Mighty Slurping Pepsi-Spiders" based on the "Pepsi-Spider" joke I made in my first vlog.

That's pretty cool! But Smurfy Grove is actually a real hidden grove where the Smurfettes live and train. :3

At last, we hear Smurfwillow and the girls talking! And while a lot of attention has been given to Julia Roberts voicing Willow, her character voice sounds a lot like veteran voice actress Tara Strong (Teen Titans Go, My Little Pony) landed the part. If Sony ever does a Lost Village DVD short film or a new TV series, I would rather have Tara than Julia as Smurfwillow.

Yes. Julia fits the role for the movie but Tara is better suited.

i really would love that. it would b very SMURFY!
we will b able to see all the new smurfettes interacting
with the smurfs in Papas village. i would like to see
the female counterparts to the following smurfs: Grouchy,
Lazy, Brainy, Greedy, Jokey, scaredy, Handy, Clumsy and
vanity of course and Harmony and Painter. but maybe blossom is jokey counterpart since shes happy and hyperactive and we have seen smurfstorm counter to
Hefty. we shall see what happens next.

My idea for a new TV show would be a half-hour 2D (not CGI) animated program patterned after the old Hanna-Barbera series or the more recent DVD shorts. It would include most of the original TV Smurfs (including Grandpa, Nanny and the Smurflings), Vexy, Hackus and the main Smurfy Grove girls. The two Smurf villages would remain separate but there is a lot of interaction and adventures between them as Smurf Village learns to smurf along with Smurfy Grove after so many centuries--an intercultural angle for today's multiethnic, international audiences.

Peyo always sought to teach good lessons to his young readers while entertaining them, and his children continue that tradition. So I believe a new Smurf TV series would be more appropriate on Disney Channel, Discovery Family or even PBS rather than Nick or Cartoon Network. Rebooting the Smurfs with totally irreverent humor, which are hallmarks of Nick and CN, just doesn't work with the blue folk. The most frequent complaint I've heard from those who saw the first two films was all the toilet humor that was thrown in to supposedly make the Smurfs edgier and more modern. [Razz]
 
Posted by swarlock (Member # 746) on 03-15-2017 03:59 PM:
 
Agreed on The 2D animation and not so much toilet humor. We'll have to see where this goes.

A fun little review I found about the newest smurfs comic for Smurfs: The Lost Village.

The Smurfs: The Village Behind the Wall

 -


Description

An all-new graphic novel featuring five stories that tie in to the new SMURFS animated movie! The world of the Smurfs expands as a Brainy Smurf, Smurfette, Hefty Smurf and Clumsy Smurf discover a new village filled with a whole population of girl Smurfs! A whole new world of challenges and adventures awaits the Smurfs!

My Review

This is a fun graphic novel. The stories that are featured in this novel had adventure, action, intrigue, bravery all taken place in a new world. I thought this novel was a nice introduction to the new girl smurfs and the new movie. After reading this novel, I am looking forward to watching the movie. I love the smurfs. The new girls are like Amazons. They are strong and not really afraid of anything. I did feel bad for Brainy in the first story. He really had quite the adventure. My only issue was that as much as it might have been cute that the girl smurfs kept using the words "smurf", "smurfing" or any other form of the word "smurf" was ok the first couple of times but it grew a little annoying after a dozen + times. Although, as I stated, this novel is a read that children and adults alike will enjoy.

I tried to ask someone on Global Smurfs Collectors on Facebook who had a pre-release copy of the book if that was going to be the official title of the book upon release, and unfortunately he didn't give me a simple straight answer -- just simply said that it was the official book. Apparently it looks like that's going to be the official title of the book.

And here's the drawings I drew the next day (because when I got home, it was like almost 11:30pm) when I got home from the KCA's.

It's of Madisyn Shipman from the Nick live-action show "Game Shakers" (or as I like to call them 'Game Smurfers' or 'Smurf Shakers') after she got a smurfy makeover. And my version of Slimey Smurf is sliming Smurfette (Demi Lovato) [Smurfette] .

 -


And here's my version of Slimey Smurf:
 -

He's a big Nick-head like Royal Smurf is. Slimey also hangs out with Jokey Smurf and together they make slimey-explosive gifts. When Slimey makes his gifts separately by himself, his gift boxes are green with an orange ribbon instead of Jokey's boxes, which are yellow with a red ribbon. Also, Slimey draws Nick cartoon characters like Royal does. Slimey also owns a TV, and when he's not making gifts with Jokey Smurf or on his own, he watches Nick Cartoons from S&C (Sanjay and Craig) onward. Also, he likes to hang out with Royal Smurf a lot because we have a lot in common with each other. [Happy Smurf]

So far everything looks great for the type of style it's going for. To say that "it's better than the live-action movies" is a subjective term, particularly when it comes to the CGI models. If you're going for something that looks close to the original comics, the CGI models of The Lost Village would look right at home with that aesthetic. If you want something that looks like it could exist in the real world, the Lost Village CGI models would look ridiculously out of place, making them too obvious that they are cartoon characters.

I went. I saw. I liked it. I thought it was good. But I would never call it "the live-action Smurfs movie killer" because it simply wasn't. It just succeeded in bringing the Smurfs back to their cartoon roots. And that it did well.

By the way, there was a Smurf playing the horn section of "Careless Whisper" by Wham! in the early part of the movie.

The wait is either over or almost for me since I have a choice do I be able to watch it in time
before the movie goes out of run or I wait for DVD/Blu-Ray release?
I did waited for home media release with The Peanuts movie before.
Hmm I don't know I was so busy...definitely leaning towards the home media release.
This is going to be sad to know if the movie under perform in box office,the first movie record $560 something million is pretty hard to beat.

I am -so- disappointed that I didn't get to get any of the promotional materials (the character cups, popcorn buckets, etc.)! Unfortunately the theater chain we saw it at (both times) apparently doesn't carry that stuff. I'm hoping to track down some of it on eBay (at least the Hefty cup topper >_> ).

I watched the movie yesterday! At last!
And I observed the artists' care about researching and getting the true Smurf spirit as authentic as possible. For example, Farmer's scarecrow (great reference!) already mentioned below (as well as the infamous Gargy's Shazalakazoo and the BZZ - GNAP!- fly),

During the end credits, when it shows all the snapshots, you can see Flying Smurf firmly lodged, face-first, in someone's chimney. XD

Glad you finally got to see the movie!

Thanks a smurf! Yes, it was really great! [Happy Smurf]
Does Flying Smurf appear after Gargamel, Azrael and Monty go on chattering below the credits? Pity, I really don't remember to have seen him then. I had left just after they got out of sight. [Roll Eyes]

Nah, it's at the very beginning of the credits, when they show all the photographs of the Smurfs. Same segment where we see Vanity get smooched by Reflection Smurf (a personal favorite moment of mine, hehe). X3

I'm really glad they made the first movie in 2010 (+-2 years). That's what made the second generation of Smurf fans. Smurfs 2 in 2013 just fueled it. Smurfs: The Lost Village opened (or at least proved) another dimension for the fans of all generations.

I hope this movie release triggers a complete 80's series release on DVD for North America. I really don't know what the issue is. The popularity has never been higher these last few years.

But also, with Lost Village not bringing in nearly as much box-office dollars as the last live-action film, I don't know if we'll ever get another smurf movie, unfortunately.

The time to release the dvds and still be popular is slowly drifting away, I believe.

Don't be so sure! I heard the audio commentary and the directors and producers are actually considering a sequel and they seem they really want to expand the new world of the Forbidden Forest!

Firstly, I'm thankful for this movie, Smurfs: The Lost Village, as it got me into Smurfs. I had a smurf plush when I was little (no longer have it sadly), and haven't seen much of or paid attention to the cartoon until now. When we got Cartoon Network, if it came on, it came on and that was it. Even saw the two live action movies shortly after, which in my opinion were fun, though I consider Lost Village the best of the three movies.

That said, I really loved this movie. Just everything about it, the adventure Smurfette, Brainy, Clumsy, and Hefty went on. The introduction of the other girl smurfs. Smurfblossom being really bubbly. Also Smurfette herself, finding out what she was meant to be. Not to mention my favorite moment was the climax all the way up to the end, it both had me excited and in tears.

I really hope there's a sequel, or even some short films. Really loved this movie, honestly, I'd like to see more done with this.

That remains to be seen. One thing I'm certain of is that it's back to being more about Peyo's vision than the incarnation made from the live action movies. Just my two cents.

I don't think that would happen. That seems to be a thing with Sony's movies. At least the live action one had it (was watching the first one last night), Lost Village, all I remember off hand is Hefty's little chalkboard joke he did to Brainy.

I think the article didn't mention Sony.

Perhaps in my opinion, they're doing it in the homage and style from the original Hanna-Barbera series, it was the longest running show with 9 successful seasons

Yes, I remember that moment and I must confess I didn't enjoy it. But that gag involving Gargamel and the champagne bucket in the first movie was even much worse. What is usual in cartoons such as Ren & Stimpy or Billy and Mandy's Grim Adventures isn't good for both Smurf cartoons and movies. [Gargamel] [Azrael]

Understandable, still loved Lost Village despite the chalkbord scene.

Yeah, that was definitely much worse. For me, my favorite things from the live action movies were the interactions with some of the characters. For example the scene where Smurfette hugs Vexy always gets to me. I tend to enjoy those scenes a lot more.

It's worth noting I haven't seen Smurfs 2 until after seeing Lost Village, funnily enough I bought the game for Wii U before seeing the movie, being a Smurfs thing. I think mom rented Smurfs 1 years ago, at the time I wasn't into the Smurfs. I pretty much own both movies now, also came in a pack with A Christmas Carol and Smurfy Hollow.
 
Posted by Squeaky Smurf (Member # 2416) on 09-14-2017 05:53 PM:
 
Yes, SmurfyDash, friendship and union scenes have always been constant in the Smurf movies like in Smurf cartoons. An example?
The scene when Smurfette gives her life to save everysmurf and becomes a blue clay form again reminded me Ducky's death (The Smurfs Springtime Special) at once. I felt moved as well at that moment...
I loved the Lost Village mostly because Peyo's work was carefully studied, getting a meticulous and great result. The several references taken from original comics came to our eyes (like a little observation game inserted in the movie) such as Farmer's scarecrow wearing King Smurf's crown and clothes. And Gargamel's pet bird Monty was inspired by the terrible Howlibird - to mention something.
I agree with you: no doubt it was worth watching it! [Big Grin]
 
Posted by SmurfyDash (Member # 6416) on 09-14-2017 07:53 PM:
 
That scene always makes me cry Squeaky, even a bit more when she comes back. Just showed that Smurf Village and Smurfy Grove loved Smurfette as a friend. Even Smurfstorm was sad, she just was suspicious of her.

What Smurfette did to save them, and seeing her come back help make her my favorite smurf.

I caught the scarecrow after seeing a making of featurette about returning to Peyo's work. Now I think about that scene every time I watch King Smurf. I thought of Monty when I saw the Howlibird.

Of Peyo's works, I did pick up The Smurfette from my local book store. So far, it's mostly been the 80's cartoon on DVD for me.

Indeed, I find myself putting on the movie a few times a week. I loved this movie so much.

This is some cool news. I personally thought the characters in The Lost Village looked great. A balance between looking like the classic, but updated a just enough to look modern.

The next Smurfs plot: the village behind the wall 2 ":

The river that borders the girls' village suddenly dried up. Accompanied by Brainy, Clusmy and Hefty Smurf, some of them are dispatched to understand the origin of this phenomenon. What will they discover? What new danger will hover over the group? Is not the greatest threat rather the enmity that seems to grow between Stormy and Blossom?

They look neat and I'm especially excited to read the story where Clumsy gets his own dragonfly! <3
