THE SMURFS was something of a surprise hit for Columbia/Sony when it debuted back in 2011, as was that film's 2013 sequel. Interestingly enough, this year's SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE is not a direct sequel to either of those films, but is instead a series reboot which drops the live-action component of the previous two films and brings in an all-new vocal cast. This time out, the plot revolves around Smurfette (Demi Lovato), who's struggling to find her place in Smurf Village. When she happens upon a mysterious map in the Forbidden Forest, she sets off to find the fabled Lost Village before the evil Gargamel (Rainn Wilson) can get there first. SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE looks like a delightful romp for kids of all ages. And for their parents, the film boasts an all-star voice cast, including Jack McBrayer, Mandy Patinkin, Ellie Kemper, Michelle Rodriguez, Julia Roberts (!), Gordon Ramsay, Joe Manganiello, Meghan Trainor, and many, many more.
