ABOUT SMURFS: The Lost Village
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy, and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil wizard Gargamel does. Embarking on a rollercoaster journey full of action and danger, the Smurfs are on a course that leads to the discovery of the biggest secret in Smurf history!
Growing up, The Smurfs was one of my favourite cartoons. I couldn’t wait for Saturday morning (one of the only time-slots of kids programming back in the 80s) to get my cartoon fix. Now kids programming is available 24/7, but classics like Smurfs take me back to my much simpler childhood. There is nothing I love more than being able to share my childhood with my own children. When the boys saw the preview for Smurfs: The Lost Village they thought it looked really funny, so I knew that we had to see it.
Smurfs: The Lost Village has an amazing cast with some very familiar names!
Mandy Patinkin as Papa Smurf
Demi Lovato as Smurfette
Joe Manganiello as Hefty
Jack McBrayer as Clumsy
Danny Pudi as Brainy
Michelle Rodriguez as Smurfstorm

Meghan Trainor as Smurfmelody
The boys and I were invited to a special advanced screening of Smurfs: The Lost Village on Saturday, April 1st. Despite a start time of 10am on a Saturday, we were really exited to it!
NO SPOILERS, but Smurfs: The Lost Village was really good! It is a journey of self discovery, with Smurfette wanting to know who she is and what her purpose is.
The movie itself is fast paced, with characters that are likable and relatable (even though they are only three apples high). At 89 minutes long, its the perfect length for children (like my youngest two) who don’t have the best attention span.
Smurfs: The Lost Village has everything. Jokes and laughter, edge of your seat adventure, characters to root for and characters to root against, and even a couple of tears. Its a feel-good family movie made for young and old, and something the boys and I will be able to watch again and again.
Watching the movie, Hayden discovered his new favourite song, “I’m A Lady” by Meghan Trainor. He’s been watching this one minute clip on Youtube for hours!
If you only see one family movie this spring, THIS is the one you should see!
