Sony has debuted the official teaser trailer for their new CGI The Smurfs movie featuring the voices of a whole hell of a lot of people. Neil Patrick Harris, who plays Johan in the movie, introduces this teaser, and boy does it set quite a precedent. I now know we're going to be seeing increasingly more and more of this "Smurf'd" and "Smurf This" and "Smurf That" stuff for the next… 14 months until this hits theaters. Yes, The Smurfs doesn't even arrive in theaters until August 2011. It's a long wait, but will it be worth it? It's up to you to decide. Enjoy!
The Smurfs is directed by veteran family filmmaker Raja Gosnell, of Home Alone 3, Never Been Kissed, Big Momma's House, Scooby-Doo 1 & 2, Yours, Mine and Ours, and Beverly Hills Chihuahua. The screenplay was co-written by J. David Stem & David N. Weiss (of The Rugrats Movie, Jimmy Neutron, Clockstoppers, Shrek 2, Are We There Yet?, Daddy Day Camp) and is based on the tiny little characters created by Belgian artist Peyo. Katy Perry voices Smurfette, Paul Reubens voices Jokey Smurf, B.J. Novak voices Baker Smurf and Jeff Foxworthy voices Handy Smurf. Sony is bringing The Smurfs to theaters in 3D August 3rd, 2011.
