The Smurfs Hit The Big Screen

The lovable 1980s cartoon series, the Smurfs, transferred to the big screen in 2011 with the first of what may be three films starring the funny blue characters. The first film, titled The Smurfs, was released in July of 2011, and was successful enough to warrant a sequel that was released two years later. The initial film tells the story of the Smurfs getting lost in New York City and trying to find a way back before their arch-nemesisĀ Gargamel catches them. Gargamel wishes to use the Smurfs in order to make gold out of lead and the upstanding Smurfs will have none of that.
