smurf-lost-village

The Smurfs are coming back! Sony Pictures has announced new cast members for the upcoming Smurfs: The Lost Village. Cast members include:

  • Demi Lovato (Smurfette)
  • Rainn Wilson (Gargamel)
  • Mandy Patinkin (Papa Smurf)
  • Jack McBrayer (Clumsy)
  • Danny Pudi (Brainy)
  • Joe Manganiello (Hefty).

Unlike the last 2 Smurf movies, this one will be completely animated. From the press release:

“It seems to Smurfette that everyone else in the Village has a purpose – Papa Smurf (leading), Baker Smurf (baking), even Grouchy Smurf (grouching) – except for her.  So what’s the only girl in the village to do?  Go in search of hers, of course!  When she accidentally crosses paths with a mysterious creature that takes off into the Enchanted Forest, she follows, and sets off into the uncharted and strictly forbidden woods.  Joined by her brothers Brainy, Hefty and Clumsy – and with the evil wizard Gargamel shadowing their every step – Team Smurf undertakes a wild journey full of action, danger and discovery, setting them on a course that leads to the biggest mystery in Smurf history!”

The movie is set for release April 7, 2017.

New Vexy Smurf Costumes

Great news! In addition to all of the regular Smurf costumes that we normally see, we are now seeing Vexy Smurf costumes new this year. Vexy is the female Smurf who appears in the new Smurfs 2 movie. Keep reading to see both the kids’ Vexy as well as the adult Vexy costume along with a coupon code you can use to help bring down the price! (10% off $20+ costume using code SAVE10C at Costume Supercenter)

Vexy Smurf Costume for Kids

That’s the Vexy Costume for kids. It comes in sizes Small, Medium, and Large (which goes up to a 14) and includes the top, pants, shoe covers, belt, and headpiece. That’s pretty much all you need!  “The outfit features what this character looked like throughout the whole film. It comes with a pink and burgundy striped top with beige sleeves. The skirt is a velvet material in purple and has a black lace hem. The belt is gold with blue designs and her grey hat is included as well.” I’m most excited that it is reasonably priced ($21.99 right now at Costume Supercenter.) You could even add just a touch of blue hairspray, which they sell for only $2.99.

Here’s the Vexy Adult Costume:

The Women’s Costume comes in Standard Size, which is up to a 12. It includes the top, pants with attached shoe covers, belt, and headpiece. Even it is not too expensive compared to most adult costumes at $32.99.

Smurf costumes are hot this year and Vexy will likely sell out because it is brand new. Get together a whole group and go as a bunch of different Smurfs!

New Smurfs Halloween Movie

Did you hear about the new Smurf Halloween movie? It’s called “The Smurfs: The Legend of Smurfy Hollow.” Obviously it is a takeoff on the Legend of Sleepy Hollow, a perennial Halloween Favorite that has also been done by Disney and many other companies.

One of the interesting things about the movie is that it is not all the old cartoon style but rather part new CGI and part animation. It also has the voices from the new movies.

The movie is short at only 22 minutes, but that is typical for this type of holiday special. At only $5 for the DVD on Amazon, that isn’t too bad.

Here’s the official description and the video trailer follows:

“When Brainy Smurf is favored to win the annual Smurfberry Hunt for the ninth year in a row, Gutsy Smurf sets out to discover how Brainy wins every year. Gutsy’s investigation takes him into spooky Smurfy Hollow-and right into Gargamel’s trap! Can Brainy and Gutsy, with the help of Smurfette, put aside their rivalry before Gargamel captures them-or worse, they come face-to-face with the legendary ghost, the Headless Horseman? Featuring the voice talents of Hank Azaria (Gargamel), Alan Cumming (Gutsy), Fred Armisen (Brainy) and Anton Yelchin (Clumsy), who all reprise their roles from the film, The Smurfs.”

    Global Smurfs Day

    Smurfs 2 Synopsis: 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?
