It’s a question that has nagged Smurf fans since the dawn of smurfdom: How can the little blue dudes procreate if Smurfette is the only female in the whole bunch? Well, Sony looks like it might finally provide us with an answer in its upcoming 3D animated adventure, Smurfs: The Lost Village.
In the cartoon reboot of the beloved franchise (ignoring the pair of live-action/CGI movies starring Neil Patrick Harris), a quartet of Smurfs head out on an adventure to find a fabled village that’s home to another tribe of their kind. Smurfetter (Demi Lovato) comes across a map to the legendary land and convinces Clumsy Smurf (Jack McBrayer), Brainy Smurf (Danny Pudi), and Hefty Smurf (Joe Manganiello) to head out on an adventure in spite of Papa Smurf’s (Mandy Patinkin) objections. Of course, once Gargamel (Rainn Wilson) catches wind of their plans, they’ll have a lot worse than unfamiliar landscapes to contend with.
Smurfs: The Lost Village is due in theaters on April 17th. Watch the freshly released trailer for the movie above.
