Smurfs: The Lost Village - This reboot a family treat


By Damon Smith

Smurfette (Demi Lovato) is clueless about her calling because she was originally fashioned from clay by evil wizard Gargamel (Rainn Wilson) in order to wreak havoc in Smurf Village.

During a foray into the Forbidden Forest with Hefty (Joe Manganiello), Clumsy (Jack McBrayer) and Brainy (Danny Pudi), Smurfette stumbles upon a lost tribe of female Smurfs led by Smurfwillow (Julia Roberts), who teach the new sister to use a bow and arrow, and fly through the air on a daisy.

Smurfette senses she may have found her place but Gargamel and his cat Azrael also know about Smurf Grove and intend to capture Smurfwillow and her sorority.

The Lost Village is a family-friendly computer-animated comedy, which reboots the misadventures of the cute blue creatures created by Belgian illustrator Peyo.
