Sony’s revamping the Smurfs movie franchise with a new all-animated film titled Get Smurfy. The CG animated family-friendly film will feature the voices of Demi Lovato, Rainn Wilson, and Mandy Patinkin, and will be directed by animated movie veteran Kelly Asbury (Shrek 2, Gnomeo & Juliet). Per Sony Pictures Animation’s official announcement, Lovato’s been tapped to voide Smurfette, Rainn Wilson will tackle the role of the evil Gargamel, and Mandy Patinkin is taking on Papa Smurf.
“The continued popularity of the Smurfs is unmistakeable, and this new outing will return them to the fully-animated world that launched them,” said Asbury.
“We felt it was important to take a very different approach with this origin story. It returns to the roots of Peyo’s creation in this CG animated adventure. I hope it will delight not only fans but audiences worldwide. We couldn’t be more excited with the talented new cast we’re starting to assemble for our Smurfy reboot!” added producer Jordan Kerner.
Get Smurfy will open in theaters on March 31, 2017.
