Fa la lalalala fa lala la laaa — the smurfy blue creatures from our 19080s Saturday morning cartoons are coming to the big screen in The Smurfs. In a 3D (2D too) offering from Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation, Papa Smurf, Smurfette, Grouchy Smurf, Jokey Smurf and a bunch of other adjective named Smurfs find themselves transported to New York City with Gargamel giving chase. In this third trailer, The Smurfs seek the help from a bewildered human to find a way to return to their magical, mushroomed home. Predictably, during their search they get caught up in all types of mischievous scenarios — some of which look promising, some of which don’t.
The Smurfs stars Hank Azaria, Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays and the voice talents of Katy Perry, Jonathan Winters, Alan Cumming, George Lopez and Paul Reubens.
The Smurfs skips into US theaters on July 29, 2011 and UK theaters on August 10, 2011.
