Seeing this stuff on the new show, here's a post by the official Smurfs Instagram account from awhile back.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BYsRMM_li6v/?taken-by=smurfs.official

It's the classic show's theme from season 2, but I want to steer attention to the hashtags #workinprogress and #2019.

Maybe dropping a hint at the new show.

KiKA Boards ‘Smurfs’ Series as Co-Producer

The Smurfs TELEVISION EUROPE
KiKA Boards ‘Smurfs’ Series as Co-Producer
ByMercedes MilliganPublished on October 17, 2018 SHARE TWEET COMMENT
Peyo Productions has partnered with KiKA on the new The Smurfs TV series; the leading kids’ network is on board as a co-producer and the German broadcaster for the 3D CGI series for kids 5-10. TF1 (France), KETNET and OUFTIVI (Belgium) are also co-production partners.

The Smurfs recently made the Top 20 most-watched programs at MIP Junior 2018, with a total of 1,114 views.

Véronique Culliford, president & founder of Peyo Productions and distribution company I.M.P.S. ( and Peyo’s daughter), said: “I’m very happy to once again be able to continue my father’s work by co-producing a new TV series about The Smurfs, almost 40 years after the universally known series. You will discover Smurfs in 3D CGI, as in the last movie (The Lost Village, 2017), with lots of fun, humor and adventures full of twists. I’m convinced that for this co-production, KiKA is the best player in the market, and that the Smurfs will continue to delight all generations for decades in Germany!”

“The Smurfs’ are absolutely cult! They are a highlight and an animated classic in the comic and animation culture of the last decades in Europe and of course well known in Germany. And so I’m really excited to be able to present ‘Die Schlümpfe’ exclusively to our viewers from 2021 on,” said Dr. Astrid Plenk, Managing and Programming Director of KiKA – the Children’s Channel of ARD and ZDF.

“The Smurfs also stand for strong values and great feelings and therefore, this series will fit perfectly with KiKA. I am particularly delighted that Schlumpfine [Smurfette] will over the course of the new series get female reinforcement. Everyone — children and parents — can now look forward to a series highlight with many new stories from Schlumpfhausen [Smurf Village].”

Sebastian Debertin, Head of Fiction, Acquisition and Co-Production at KiKA, added: “It was always my dream to produce a new series of The Smurfs, so I am truly happy to co-produce this animated series together with our partners Peyo Productions, Belgium, the French broadcaster TF1 and the Belgian broadcasters RTBF and Ketnet.”

“The Smurfs also stand for strong values and great feelings and therefore, this series will fit perfectly with KiKA. I am particularly delighted that Schlumpfine [Smurfette] will over the course of the new series get female reinforcement. Everyone — children and parents — can now look forward to a series highlight with many new stories from Schlumpfhausen [Smurf Village]”, supplements Dr. Astrid Plenk.

That's good news to hear.

At least KiKA will be co-producing instead of the big-budget pop-song-inducing modernizing Sony Pictures Animation.

"I’m really excited to be able to present ‘Die Schlümpfe’ exclusively to our viewers from 2021 on,” said Dr. Astrid Plenk,"
She means that the Smurfs series is coming to Germany in 2021 and onward. The series will start to premiere in France in 2019, and will hopefully come to America in 2020 (or something like that). Does this help?

Planeta Junior to Represent ‘The Smurfs’ in Spain & Portugal

 -

By: Mercedes Milligan
Published originally on January 30, 2019

European kids & family entertainment company Planeta Junior has been tapped by IMPS to act as licensing agent for The Smurfs in Spain and Portugal. Planeta Junior will manage all IP consumer products for both the classic brand targeting millennial audiences, and the new animated and live-action hybrid films and new series in the works which are re-popularizing the property for young audiences.

On the 60th anniversary of the Smurfs’ creation by Belgian comic artist Peyo, their values of tolerance, friendship, fun and respect for nature are as relevant as ever, and fully-aligned with contemporary lifestyles. The delightful blue creatures are known for their original and distinct characters and for their ability to work together regardless of differences that, contrary to what you might expect, always help them achieve their shared objectives. In line with these values, the Smurfs were appointed to star in the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals campaign, which was signed in 2015. This year, they are raising young people’s awareness of the need to protect our seas and oceans.

The new CGI animation TV series targets 5- to 10-year olds and comprises 52 x 11 minute episodes, set to launch globally in 2021. It will feature all of the elements that made the Smurfs iconic: comedy, adventure, action, pace and quick-fire dialogue.

Veronique Culliford, founder and president of IMPS/The Smurfs and daughter of The Smurfs creator Peyo, stated: “We are very happy to collaborate in Spain and Portugal with Planeta Junior, who will for sure carry on The Smurfs image with great emotion for children, big and small.”

“The Smurfs are among the most iconic and beloved characters ever created. We are proud to manage this property in Spain and Portugal, where these little blue creatures have been around several generations for 60 years and keep smurfing kids nowadays. We are sure that both adults and kids will love the amazing products we are developing that will take The Smurfs to places never explored before,” said Ignacio Segura, General Manager at Planeta Junior.

The return of the Smurfs on the small screen takes shape
November 23, 2018

Nearly 40 years after their first television appearance, a new Belgian production company was formed to revive the Smurfs on the small screen. The project raises many interests. Expected release mid-2021.

We know little more about the next return of the Smurfs on small screens, forty years after their first appearance. Cited briefly in June at the launch of the large exhibition Schtroumpf Experience, which runs until the end of January 2019 (more than 150,000 spectators to date), the project has grown.

A new company, Peyo Productions , was formed a few days ago. It is owned by the Swiss company Lafig SA, partly in the hands of the heirs of Peyo, the creator of little blue and white fellows. Véronique Culliford, the daughter of Peyo, head of IMPS, the company that manages the rights to the work of the late draftsman, owns one of the 615 shares.

Peyo Productions was created to co-produce, with the French subsidiary of Editions Dupuis, owned by the Franco-Belgian group Media Participations, the future cartoons to be broadcast on television and on the Internet. "It is a partnership whose terms have not been strictly established, the precise amount of investment is not yet fully known, explains Brigitte Ickmans, COO of IMPS and right arm Veronique Culliford. This will in any case a multi-million production because we want to get the best quality possible. "

French-Belgian production

The project is, in fact, very ambitious, it is to produce a series of 52 episodes of 3D cartoons lasting 12 minutes the episode. A second season of 52 episodes is already envisaged. "We have finished the development and we have started the production, the animation will begin during the first half of next year", says Brigitte Ickmans. Two studios were chosen to carry out the project: Dreamwall , a well-known production company carolo, owned by the Dupuis Quartet, Wallimage Entreprises, RTBF, Sambrinvest, and Ellipse Animation , another entity of the Media Participations group.

Presented last October at Mipcom in Cannes as a draft, the new series is already generating interest. It has already been bought by RTBF (Ouftivi), VRT (Ketnet), TF1 and the German channel Kinder Kanal for broadcast in the second half of 2021. "It is also of interest to many American children's channels Nickelodeon (which belongs to the giant Viacom, Ed) and Cartoon Network (Warner Media, Ed), "says Brigitte Ickmans. The audience of these two channels is global.

The Turn of the 80s

This American interest is not surprising. The Smurfs are Universal Characters. The recent film adaptation of their Hollywood-style universe by the Sony-Columbia studio has been a hit. But their notoriety goes back to well before, more precisely at the beginning of the Eighties, when the American studio Hanna-Barbera adapted their adventures for television. It was the beginning of a real televised "Smurfmania" that allowed Peyo's little characters to conquer the whole world. 272 episodes of 30 minutes each were thus produced.

The project aims to perpetuate the aura of the series but with modern animation techniques . And then, this is the first time that Belgians (and French) will be at the helm for an audiovisual project around the Smurfs more than forty years after their first appearance in the cinema: it was in 1976 with the adaptation by the Belvision studio of the mythical album "The flute with six Smurfs".

Derivatives

If the 60th anniversary of the series puts the Smurfs in the light, they have never left the front of the stage. A good hundred television contracts are still in progress and it is estimated that more than a billion people have been in contact with the series.

Hanna-Barbera's cartoons have spawned huge merchandising and innumerable licenses for consumer brands. This business never went out. On the contrary, it bounces regularly with releases of movies, albums, video games and other events.

700 licenses are active today. IMPS, which achieved a turnover of 14.3 million euros in 2017 and a net profit of 1.4 million, estimates at one billion dollars the revenue generated each year by the sales of retail products via these licenses. The marketing machine should once again be excited during the distribution of these new cartoons.

Vic's right.

We've still got one more year left before the series will soar with flying colors on the internet and television.

But it's going to focus on just the main Smurfs from the first and second seasons of the 1980s cartoon show.

Posted by Oscar95 (Member # 5028) on 05-19-2019 10:29 PM:
 
I wonder if Netflix acquires the worldwide rights to "The Smurfs: A New Touch of Blue", In case if they lost the rights to Winx Club and other Rainbow S.p.a. shows and movies, if Disney buys Rainbow S.p.a. and transfer all the shows to their own streaming services, Disney+.

Hopefully, this will be better than the original 1980s series (where it suffered from limited animation, errors and formulaic storylines by Hanna-Barbera itself).

The Hanna-Barbera series looked so bad it seemed like it came out in the 60s.

I also hope the anonymous Smurfs will be more present like in the comics instead of being in the background and we get stuck seeing the same 10 Smurfs all the time.
 
Posted by Matthew Grisham (Member # 6579) on 05-23-2019 01:49 PM:
 
And don't forget, the Smurfs are a little more mischievous in the original comics (which gives them depth).

They also swore (not explicitly, mind you) physically fought each other quite often and occasionally drank.

Do you think they'll hit Brainy on the head with a mallet in this new series or just throw him outta the village a la Hanna-Barbera?

I'm afraid it hasn't been confirmed yet.

But we shall wait and see.

If an European producer is responsible for the production, I'm inclined to think the series shall be according to the Smurf original comics. [Happy Smurf]
And thanks a smurf, Royal, for sharing all these smurfy pictures and news! [Big Grin]

Gargamel and the Smurf's poses look even more complex than static in the upcoming reboot.

Do think Netflix might buy the worldwide rights to "The Smurfs: A New Touch of Blue", If Disney buys Rainbow S.p.a., including their libraries such as Winx Club, Huntik, Monster Allergy, 44 Cats and Maggie & Bianca: Fashion Friends for their streaming service, Disney+?

The premiere of this series is scheduled for the year 2021.

Just like when the Hanna-Barbera series is scheduled to premiere in the fall of 1981.

Gargy looks so jolly that he gives me the impression of saying: "Don't run away, little Smurf! I just want to play a bit with you..." [Big Grin]
Yep, to play alchemist... Well, he could have fooled us! [Gargamel]

I think it's just that for now, Najeetech (welcome to Bluebuddies btw!), but I've just found this video showing desserts with surprise Smurf toys based on the new upcoming TV show.


The Smurf gifts look really adorable. [Enamored Smurf]

This will probably mean we won't get any official footage until like early spring 2021. I wonder how the writing will be? The leaked trailer from a while back primarily showed a lot of physical humour.

There's teasing, and there's just torturing people by constantly pulling the carrot stick away.

The eternal marketing business - alaways betting on suspense and surprise. [Roll Eyes]

"Surprise? Did I hear something about surprise?"
The other Smurfs (sighing): "Yes, but not any of your surprises, Jokey..."
 
Posted by VicGeorge2010 (Member # 300) on 08-14-2019 05:42 AM:
 
There's a point where the anticipation gets from amused to annoyed, where people are saying, "Show us the goods or we're leaving!"

I hope this show pulls in new fans.
 
Posted by VicGeorge2010 (Member # 300) on 08-19-2019 05:46 PM:
 
If it gets to the point of being trapped in Development Hell, this may be one series not worth waiting for.
 
Posted by Crisptix (Member # 7176) on 08-19-2019 06:28 PM:
 
Looking at those screenshots it already looks amazing.

Has the show been in development hell ? Why do you want it to be rushed?
 
Posted by swarlock (Member # 746) on 08-23-2019 09:54 PM:
 
I have too many other things rto worry about right now. It'll come when it comes.
 
Posted by VicGeorge2010 (Member # 300) on 08-24-2019 06:39 AM:
 
I'm not saying I want it rushed. I'm saying I don't want to be constantly teased and delayed, teased and delayed, teased and delayed, because that is just annoying the audience. And while doing that it may eventually get to the point where it could be held up for years, and then the project would end up scrapped or replaced by something else.
 
Posted by Crisptix (Member # 7176) on 08-24-2019 08:58 PM:
 
Have you noticed that cycle up til now? Is that what is happening with this show?
 
Posted by VicGeorge2010 (Member # 300) on 08-25-2019 02:27 AM:
 
It was scheduled for 2019. Then it was scheduled for 2020. Now it's scheduled for 2021. I wonder if they're going to stick to that date or just push the goalposts even further. That sounds like a tease and delay to me.
 
Posted by Crisptix (Member # 7176) on 08-27-2019 06:53 PM:
 
It could be in development hell but going by those screenshots it looks freaking amazing. I really want to see it move now. I'll wait however long it takes to get it. I have other fandoms to indulge in until then.
 
Posted by VicGeorge2010 (Member # 300) on 08-28-2019 02:56 AM:
 
I'll wait, but if the Second Coming happens first, all bets are off.

Posted by SomeGuy (Member # 7093) on 11-24-2019 07:40 AM:
 
Lots of things I am liking:

-Greedy and Chef being two different Smurfs.
-Dimwitty/Dopey Smurf's presence (FINALLY).
-Grouchy being the one bitten by the fly instead of Lazy.
-Judging from the concept sketches, Papa Smurf seems less patient.
-Smurfette's origin.


All of which is accurate to the comics
 
Posted by VicGeorge2010 (Member # 300) on 11-24-2019 10:56 AM:
 
IMO, Grouchy becoming Grouchy because of an after-effect of being bitten by the Bzz Fly is a really stupid origin for his character behavior. Just saying.
 
Posted by SomeGuy (Member # 7093) on 11-24-2019 11:32 AM:
 
People aren't born grouchy, like the HB series would have you believe (which is even dumber). They become grouchy, often due to traumatic experiences. Being bitten by a fly and causing a pre-zombie apocalypse fits the bill.

Now, you don't have to like it, but that's THE origin
 
Posted by Matthew Grisham (Member # 6579) on 11-25-2019 08:37 AM:
 
In fact, when I saw the pitch bible, I realized that the Smurfettes from The Lost Village movie were going to be in that series.

Even Baby Smurf.

That's why there's fanfiction, SomeGuy. At least there characters are always the way some people (namely fanfiction creators) prefer to have them. And that's where I'll leave my discussion with you on that. So enough said.
