Kelly Asbury directs this all-new take on the Smurfs that is fully-animated in the original style of creator Peyo (Belgian cartoonist Pierre Culliford) and comes complete with its own girl-power anthem, “I’m a Lady” courtesy of Meghan Trainor.

Clumsy (Jack McBrayer), Hefty (Joe Manganiello) and Brainy (Danny Pudi) in Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation's SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE.

In the world of The Smurfs, every Smurf has a role to fill – and their names reflect their purpose. For example, Farmer Smurf farms, Baker Smurf bakes and Vanity Smurf stares at himself in the mirror. But what is Smurfette’s purpose? Molded from clay by the evil wizard Gargamel (Rainn Wilson) and sent as a sleeper agent to infiltrate the Smurfs, Smurfette was cured of her spell by Papa Smurf (Mandy Patinkin) and joined them – becoming the only girl in Smurf Village – but she may not be alone.

The alll-new, fully CG animated feature SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE by Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation, coming to theaters worldwide in March 2017.

When Smurfette discovers a mysterious map, she leads her best friends Brainy (Danny Pudi), Clumsy (Jack McBrayer) and Hefty (Joe Manganiello) on an exciting and thrilling journey through the Forbidden Forest where they must battle Gargamel in a race to discover the biggest secret in Smurf history!

What they discover is a lost village of Amazonian Smurfs who all share a special connection with Smurfette. Now Smurfette must decide to which world she belongs. Featuring the additional voice talents of Michelle Rodriguez, Ellie Kemper, Ariel Winter and Julia Roberts, Smurfs: The Lost Village delivers the important and positive message that no one (specifically girls, in this case) has to be just one thing, they can be anything they want to be. 3/5
