This summer is getting a little blue with The Smurfs 2 arriving in theaters in late July. But this time the blue crew finds their female companion Smurfette (Katy Perry) kidnapped by Gargamel’s (Hank Azaria) new creation The Naughties (Christina Ricci and JB Smoove), who try to turn her into one of them. Plus, they need her to give them the secret formula so Gargamel can make true blue Smurfs (though we’re not sure why that’s important). Neil Patrick Harris reprises his role with most of the original voice cast, and we also see Brendan Gleeson (In Bruges) pop up. It looks like exactly what you’d expect from Smurfs.
In The Smurfs 2, Hank Azaria is back as Gargamel who finds himself using “his wizarding powers to become a hit entertainer in Paris, where he hopes to use the Eiffel Tower as an energy-generating antenna that will allow him to return home.” Two new villainous creatures called The Naughties, little monsters named Vexy (Christina Ricci) and Hackus (JB Smoove), give The Smurfs trouble and aim to help Gargamel get his powers back. Neil Patrick Harris is returning along with most of the original voice cast, including Fred Armisen, Katy Perry and more, when the film from director Raja Gosnell hits theaters on July 31st, 2013.
Here’s the new trailer for Raja Gosnell’s The Smurfs 2 from Sony Pictures.
