The second full-length trailer for Smurfs: The Lost Village is released online, featuring the voices of Demi Lovato, Rainn Wilson, Joe Manganiello and others.

After its first two not-so-successful outings, Sony holds firm in its ability to sell a solid Smurfs movie. Both Smurfs and Smurfs 2 went for a, somewhat shakily produced, live-action/3D computer animation combo that many movie-goers were ultimately left disappointed by. With the franchise’s reboot Smurfs: The Lost Village however, the studio places the gang firmly back in their home village, much to our relief.

The new film seems to be in capable hands with director Kelly Asbury, whose previous work includes helming Shrek 2 (2004), and working as an animator on Pixar’s prestigious Toy Story (1995), taking the reigns. Stars Joe Manganiello (Hefty), Demi Lovato (Smurfette), Mandy Patinkin (Papa Smurf), Rainn Wilson (Gargamel) and Jack McBrayer (Clumsy) will voice the ainmated characters.

The new two-and-a-half-minute trailer sets us up perfectly for the film, providing an introduction to each of the main characters, while also showing their relationships to one another. Clearly there’s going to be some interesting dynamics at play.

Official Description and Trailer:

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!

The unfortunate thing here is that by the end of the trailer it has become pretty clear that ‘The Lost Village’ is very likely to be a village of Smurfettes, at least that seems to be what’s being indicated.

Nevertheless, Sony’s reboot has returned the Smurfs to their rightful home, and many will be most pleased to see it.
