First Look at the CGI Smurfs
06.16.10 by REELZ
The first official photo of Sony's computer-generated The Smurfs appeared in USA Today, giving us a look at Grouchy Smurf (George Lopez), Papa Smurf (Jonathan Winters), and Clumsy Smurf (Anton Yelchin) in all their bluish glory.
In the movie, Gargamel (Hank Azaria) discovers the Smurfs' village, chasing them through a magical portal that transports them to the real-world's Central Park. In NYC, they take refuge with a husband and wife played by Neil Patrick Harris and Glee's Jayma Mays.
The CGI Smurfs are meant to interface smoothly with their live-action counterparts, promises director Raja Gosnell.
You'll see the Smurfs as fully living, breathing creatures. They're little mammals. They're vulnerable little creatures in our big modern world.
Be sure to come back here on Thursday to see the first official Smurfs trailer.
