Whether you’re a grandparent, parent or kid, there’s no doubt you’d be familiar with (and a fan of!) The Smurfs. Those uber-happy little blue guys are back on our big screens this month and to celebrate, haven has a pile of Smurftastic prizes for you!
The French call them ‘Les Schtroumpfs”, the Dutch know them as “De Smurfen” and we Aussies simply call them “Smurfs”. Wherever you are in the world and whatever your generation, those little blue humanoid characters are well loved by all.
Did you know The Smurfs date back to 1958? They were developed by a Belgian comic artist named Peyo. According to Wikipedia, the word “Smurf” is the original Dutch translation of the French “Schtroumpf”, which, according to Peyo, is a word invented during a meal with a fellow cartoonist when he could not remember the word ‘salt’.
Fast forward nearly 60 years (yes, SIXTY years!) and The Smurfs are about to hit our big screens again in Smurfs: The Lost Village.
In the movie, 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 rollercoaster journey full of action and danger, the Smurfs are on a course that leads to the discovery of the biggest secret in Smurf history!
The movie stars Demi Lovato as Smurfette, Mandy Patinkin as Papa Smurf, Jack McBrayer as Clumsy Smurf, Danny Pudi as Brainy Smurf, Joe Manganiello as Hefty Smurf and Rainn Wilson as Gargamel. A newly announced voice cast features additional names such as Michelle Rodriguez (SmurfStorm), Ellie Kemper (SmurfBlossom), Ariel Winter (SmurfLily) and Julia Roberts (SmurfWillow). But the awesomeness doesn’t stop there. Check out the special voice cameos from Gordon Ramsay (Baker), Gabriel Iglesias (Jokey), Tituss Burgess (Vanity), Jeff Dunham (Farmer), Jake Johnson (Grouchy) and director Kelly Asbury (Nosey). Smurfs: The Lost Village is in cinemas from March 30.
