Smurfs: The Lost Village Debuts Brand-Smurfing-New Trailer

Here's some news to make you sing a happy song (and maybe even Smurf it all day long): There's a new international trailer for the animated "Smurfs: The Lost Village." This new cut is shorter than the previous trailers, and highlights the mystery of the peeping inhabitants of the titular village.

"Smurfs: The Lost Village" works as a sort of soft reboot for of the Sony Pictures franchise. While the previous two Smurf films placed our little blue heroes in the world of live-action humans, the animated "Lost Village" seems a welcome exploration of the fantastical, limited -vocabulary world of Smurf Village.

In the film, a mysterious map sets Smurfette, Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on a race through the Forbidden Forest to find a mysterious lost village before the evil wizard Gargamel does.

This entry in the franchise boasts an entirely new voice cast, including Mandy Patinkin as Papa Smurf, Jack McBrayer as Clumsy Smurf, Danny Pudi as Brainy Smurf, Joe Manganiello as Hefty Smurf, Rainn Wilson as the villainous Gargamel, and Demi Lovato replacing Katy Perry as Smurfette.

Directed by Kelly Asbury ("Shrek 2"), "Smurfs: The Lost Village" also features the voices of Ariel Winter, Julia Roberts, Michelle Rodriguez, Ellie Kemper and Tituss Burgess. The film arrives April 7.
