Peyo's Smurfs had their first appearance in a 1958 story of Johann and Pfiffikus and turned out an overnight success.Their popularity even outran Johann and Pfiffikus a series which Peyo quit to pay more attention to his little blue heroes. Ever since then, the Smurfs have had a number of big moments in comic books, on television and even in cinemas all over the world. Their nemesis: Gargamel.
In 2011 THE SMURFS debuted in 3-D. In August 2013 Sony Pictures Entertainment presented the sequel of this cinematic comedy-adventure. The latest live action / animation mix once more features Gargamel (HANK AZARIA) and his grubby cat versus the Smurfs.
This time Gargamel has invented two smurf-like creatures who turn out quite cheeky. Their only problem: They can't figure out how to get the famous essence that will transform them into the real thing. Only Smurfette knows the secret and so her fate is sealed: Gargamel abducts her and brings her to Paris where millions of French think him to be the world's greatest magician.
Papa Smurf, Clumsy, Muffi and Beauty set out to save her beloved Smurfette. After some difficult encounters they even get help by two humans: Patrick (NEIL PATRICK HARRIS) and Grace (JAYMA MAYS). Gargamel's two naughties Vexy and Hackus want to convince Smurfette to get naughty, like them, and hand them over the formula. And Smurfette always has felt a little non-smurfy. Will she accept their offer?
