You’ve heard of back in black? Get ready for back in blue.
The Smurfs 2
heads to theaters on July 31, 2013, reuniting Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays with their pint-sized, blue-skinned Smurf pals for another adventure shifting the action from New York City to Paris. Smurf-tastic!
While we saw a Smurfs 2 poster a few weeks back, an international teaser gives us a little better look at the characters in action … yet still no new footage from the animated movie.
Here’s the international clip for Smurfs 2:
And here’s the official synopsis. I’m curious: Do you appreciate teasers like this that announce the existence of a sequel without showing any in-movie footage? Or would you rather wait to just see scenes from the movie that’s eventually going to be in theaters? Weigh in below.
“In this sequel to the hybrid live action/animated family blockbuster comedy The Smurfs, the evil wizard Gargamel creates a couple of mischievous Smurf-like creatures called the Naughties that he hopes will let him harness the all-powerful, magical Smurf-essence. But when he discovers that only a real Smurf can give him what he wants — and only a secret spell that Smurfette knows can turn the Naughties into real Smurfs — Gargamel kidnaps Smurfette and brings her to Paris, where he has been winning the adoration of millions as the world’s greatest sorcerer. It’s up to Papa, Clumsy, Grouchy, and Vanity to return to our world, reunite with their human friends Patrick and Grace Winslow, and rescue her! Will Smurfette, who has always felt different from the other Smurfs, find a new connection with the Naughties Vexy and Hackus – or will the Smurfs convince her that their love for her is True Blue?”
