After a couple of live-action films, it looks like the Smurfs are getting fully animated again!
It was just announced via video that Demi Lovato will be voicing Smurfette, taking over from fellow pop star Katy Perry. Also joining the cast are Rainn Wilson as the villainous Gargamel and Mandy Patinkin as Papa Smurf.
The latest film finds Smurfette and her brothers navigating the Enchanted Forest in search of a fabled Smurfs village before the evil Gargamel finds it. Animated in 3D in the style of Smurfs creator Peyo Culliford, mysteries will be revealed. Are Smurfs only blue or do they come in other hues? Are their mushroom abodes organic? And the biggest mystery — why are there 99 boys and only one girl?
Directed by Kelly Asbury and produced by Jordan Kerner, Get Smurfy opens March 31.
