Smurfs Triology

A lot of people were both excited and dumbfounded at the same time when they heard news that The Smurfs were going to be getting a full length feature film. I think it’s a cute idea personally, although I do wonder how financial viable it’s going to be. We’ll have to wait and see.

Last year when we first talked about the buzz, there was word that they might be planning for more than one Smurfs film already. And guess what… it’s true. The Smurfs is being written as, and produced as… A TRILOGY. Yup, you read that right… we’re getting a Smurf’s trilogy that they’re comparing to Lord of the Rings. I kid you not! I’m not creative enough to make this stuff up.

The good folks over at Movie Hole give us this:

Kerner says he has been researching the popular 80s cartoon extensively. “Having seen all 234 episodes of the show, numerous times, Herb Ratner and I have been working really hard at looking where all the holes were in the episodes – ya’know, like all of a sudden another woman appears, it’s not just smurfette – and what we’ve done is we’ve plugged all those holes in a trilogy of three movies, and we reveal things as we go along”.

The “Smurfs” trilogy will be “the animated Lord of the Rings – through the world of these idiots. Because they’re sweet characters but they’re goofs. It’s a comic version, but still very heartfelt, version of Lord of the Rings – though not literally Lord of the Rings, but an epic story like that.”

So there you have it. All I can say is that they must have a HUGE amount of confidence in this property if they’re not even waiting to see how the first Smurfs movie does. To go ahead and plan for 3… well… that’s gutsy.

So what do you think. Looking forward to The Smurfs movie? Think it’s a stupid idea?

  1. I can’t be bothered with anything these days, but shrug. I just don’t have anything to say recently. I haven’t gotten much done recently. Nothing seems worth thinking about.

  2. Does anyone really think this is going to be good?

    Find a name: past or present

    Of anything:
    Cartoon, comic, myth, old movie, hallucination, cactus, lawnchair, pervert, space heater, rat daydreams, sharpie marker, teddy bear, fruit, skin disease, pant size, pope, lottery ticket, chicharonne, scarf, month, tampon, slim jim, refrigerator, placenta, ear ache, sock filled with nickels, and a candybar…

    And make a movie out of it.

    It’s really sad.

  3. Didn’t they end the series with the smurfs trapped in the past?I could be wrong but I thought gargamel destroyed The smurf village while the smurfs were in the past.

  4. I *love* the smurfs but I’m pretty positive a good trilogy is not possible. If they’re serious about going ahead with this they’re really going to stretch story and I think the discussion brought up in the AE was a good one. The people who remember the smurfs aren’t really all that interested in seeing a movie. Lets face it…there’s no action, no sex….what the hell are they going to do with it? I’m not looking forward to thid but on the other hand I’m curious about how it’ll unfold.

  5. Hell, Sonic has MUCH better luck with this kind of treatment than the Smurfs do~!

    Unless Darren Aronofsky is directing, >-).

  6. Perhaps it’s just morbid curiosity, but I’m quite interested. Maybe I just want to know if Smurfette ever DOES get married…:)

  7. This would have to be aimed at little kids, and little kids don’t care about anything unless there’s some shit jokes. If memory serves, Smurfs don’t shit. Is their shit blue?

  8. I think it is good idea to dust off the old property and bring it back on some level. Happens to Bugs Bunny, Scooby Doo, Donald Duck…

    Sadly, no return of the beloved Wally Gator, Huckleberry Hound or Thundarr. Oh well.

    Oh, a MOVIE, you say?

    Y’know a 2-D animation would stink, but…if it’s a 3D CGI…that…might…have some possibilities.

    THE REAL QUESTION IS:

    Will there be any influences under ‘Magic Mushrooms’ ?

  9. This is just bizarre.
    A Smurf movie would have been cute 20years ago.
    I doubt the kids of today even know who the smurfs are.
    Besides those asexual midgets always sort gave me the creeps.

  10. That is just wrong. The Smurfs are fine in tv shows and in comics, but even one movie is not a great idea.

    But hey, maybe it will surprise us all and be very good. Who knows, ey?
