Taking a chance at showing my age, I have to admit my love for The Smurfs. I grew up watching the cheery, sing-songy episodes with wide eyes as Gargamel and his feisty companion, Azrael the cat continually tormented the miniature Smurfs. I'm so excited to share with Smurf fans - both new and no-so-new, that the announcement that newest movie, Smurfs The Lost Village, debuts on April 7th in theaters nationwide. This is your invitation to our exclusve

Smurfette may be small and blue but this feisty girl really packs a punch. She is strong-willed and independent, energetic and curious. But as the only girl in a village full of boys where every Smurf’s name indicates their place in the world— Baker Smurf bakes, Jokey Smurf jokes and Nosey Smurf is always up in every other Smurf’s business.— Smurfette’s name doesn’t indicate much of anything. Consequently, Smurfette has started to wonder what her purpose is. What is an “ette” anyway? A journey through the Forbidden Forest to find a Lost Village of Smurfs becomes way more than just an adventure. It’s a journey of friendship and self-discovery, and along the way Smurfette finds the answer she’s been looking for… A “Smurfette” is a girl who is capable of just about anything she puts her mind to.
Hefty is brave, strong, brawny and very protective of his Smurf friends. But don’t be fooled by his excessive masculinity; he is also extremely sweet and sensitive and wears his heart on his sleeve, both figuratively and literally.
You’d be hard pressed to find another Smurf whose name indicates his place more than Brainy Smurf… He is super smart and can always be found with his nose in a book or in his lab cooking up some cool new invention. He’s also quite the journeyman, thanks in part to his time as a young Smurf scout, during which he earned a plethora (his word) of merit badges. Just don’t expect etiquette to be in Brainy’s repertoire—he never earned his "manners badge."
Equal parts dangerous and idiotic, Gargamel is the grandiose, self-important, iconic foil of the Smurfs. All he craves in this life is to be celebrated and revered as the most powerful wizard in the world, except he has exceptionally poor execution of all his wizard plans. His quest for infinite power, paired with a pretty substantial receding hairline makes him a comical villain, but also a dreaded adversary for our Smurfs.
Blossom is an enthusiastic and joyful hyperactive ball of energy. She never met a Smurf she didn’t like. She’s the walking, talking definition of “spunky” with her candy-sweet, bubbly personality. Her glass isn’t just half full, it’s over-flowing. She may be a Smurf but she never feels blue.
Lily is smart as a whip, practical and rational. She thinks before she speaks and prefers if you’d do the same. She’s not afraid to tell you like it is or to take charge. Even when no one asked her to.
Storm is the no-nonsense, tough-as-nails warrior who immediately questions why Smurfette and the boys have come to Smurfy Grove. Her protective nature makes it hard to trust these outsiders. But through her tough exterior lies a heart of gold, and underneath it all, a girl who would do anything for her family and friends.
Willow is savvy and multi-talented, a peaceful presence who is also fiercely passionate. Everything she does, she does wholeheartedly. And that is exactly why, as the leader of Smurfy Grove, Willow has raised a group of warrior Smurfs who are independent self-starters, capable of anything.
Another citizen of the Lost Village, SmurfMelody can bust out an empowering tune at just the right moment!
No need for you to be blue. Get set for another "Smurf-tastic" adventure! Smurfs The Lost Village, debuts on April 7th in theaters nationwide.
