Smurfs: The Lost Village: “In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil wizard Gargamel does. Embarking on a roller coaster journey full of action and danger, the Smurfs are on a course that leads to the discovery of the biggest secret in Smurf History.”
My First Impressions:
The first thing I noticed was the animation. I am very visual and have always been impressed with how far animation has come through the years. The textures and life-like colorful characters made me stand up and pay attention. The story line was perfect, because I have always wondered if another village of smurfs could have existed. It feels like a lot of thought was put into making it relevant and current, because (let’s face it) it’s what this generation of children understand.
“Girl Smurfs Mean Business”:
Everyone knows that Smurfette was the only girl smurf created by that evil Gargamel and despite that fact, she became part of the smurf family. In this film, you will be introduced to more girl smurfs and I must say that I was super stoked that they were there. If you are like me, you wondered where all the “normal” girl smurfs were. You are in luck, this film will take the wonder from your brain. Smurfette definitely takes her own journey of discovering who she is. Being the only girl can be lonely and on this journey she will find more smurfs that look like her. With strong girl smurfs like SmurfStorm, SmurfBlossom and SmurfWillow (leader of the girl smurfs) this movie doesn’t disappoint.
The Other Classic Smurf Characters?:
Yes, some of the original smurf characters we’ve come to love are back: Hefty, Clumsy, the “know-it-all” Brainy and we can not forget our beloved Papa Smurf. I love that they are on this magical journey because let’s face it, there’s no smurfs without the smurfs we’ve grown up with, right? Of course, no smurf tale can be told without Gargamel and Azreal and they are up to their old tricks.. getting foiled by the Smurfs.
Is It Suitable For Kids?:
Yes, it is 100% suitable for everyone, not just kids! However, a teenager may or may not enjoy it as much. My 14 year old daughter saw it and she said that she enjoyed it.
