Smurfs: The Lost Village Review
They’re blue. They’re three apples high. And they live in mushrooms. The Smurfs are back in a brand-new adventure coming to theaters this Friday, “Smurfs: The Lost Village.” A reboot of the film franchise which started in 2011 (and continued with a 2013 sequel), this new film trades in the live-action/animation hybrid hijinks for a completely animated story. The film centers around the enigma of Smurfette (voiced by Demi Lovato), the only female Smurf in Smurf Village, who struggles to find her purpose, being the only Smurf without a defining personality trait. A mysterious map then leads Smurfette and her friends (and the evil wizard Gargamel) on a quest to find a Lost Village of Smurfs, who happen to have some strong similarities to Smurfette, leading her to decide where her home truly is.
With an All-Star voice cast filling every single nook, cranny, and one-line character, Smurfs: The Lost Village is an energetic, fun adventure with some very beautiful animation and an enjoyable story. With plenty of laughs and fun, the film makes for a fantastic trip to the theater with the family
Smurfs Inspired Healthy Dessert Recipe
Smurfs: The Lost Village is the perfect inspiration for a fun recipe! With the bright colors and forest setting, I just had to incorporate both.
