The "Smurfs" are back and ready for a new adventure — without humans.
The first teaser trailer is here for "Smurfs: The Lost Village," which will be entirely animated, with no live-action footage (unlike the two previous movies in the franchise). The adventure focuses on Smurfette (voiced by Demi Lovato), who takes her besties Brainy (Danny Pudi), Clumsy (Jack McBrayer), and Hefty (Joe Manganiello) on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest. They're trying to find the titular village before Gargamel (Rainn Wilson) does.
"Smurfs: Lost Village" looks geared more to kids than even the first two movies, with the pesky (and rather odd) live-action components now gone. There is some colorful scenery, including the hungry flowers aka Venus Smurf Traps, in the trailer, and the story is set up to be a "rollercoaster journey full of action and danger."
"Smurfs: Lost Village" opens in theaters April 7, 2017.
