Smurfs Plot Revealed And Chekov Is A Clumsy Smurf
Sony has started production on The Smurfs and they’ve announced two more actors hired to provide voices for the film’s smurfy, little blue characters. Star Trek’s Anton Yelchin is on board to play Clumsy Smurf and Fred Armisen is in to play Brainy Smurf. Already announced voices include Jonathan Winters as Papa Smurf, Katy Perry as Smurfette, George Lopez as Grouchy Smurf, and Alan Cumming as Gutsy Smurf.
It’s been at least two decades since I saw a Smurf episode, but I don’t remember a Smurf named Clumsy. At least his name is self-explanatory. Brainy Smurf, however, was one of the core Smurfs in the cartoon. His name might suggest that he’s a genius, but most of the time Brainy came off as a self-important know-it-all rather than a genuine genius. Armisen should be able to pull that off.
So what’s the movie about? Here’s the first Smurfs plot synopsis:
When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village, they tumble from their magical world and into ours – in fact, smack dab in the middle of Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down.
This confirms what many had suspected, that the live-action, CGI hybrid film won’t take place in the Smurf village and they’ll probably end up living in some little kid’s bedroom or something. Smurfs in the real world… is that a good idea? We’ll find out when The Smurfs hits theaters August 3, 2011.
