10 brand new images from The Smurfs 2 have arrived just in time to remind you that our little blue friends read L.A. Times. What a description, I know, but that’s exactly what you’re going to see in the rest of this report. To be honest, this time we have a much better look at Hank Azaria‘s Gargamel, and Neil Patrick Harris‘ Pat Winslow guy, so in case you’re actually interested in the upcoming sequel – head inside to check them out!
I will once again remind you that director Raja Gosnell stands behind this 3D family comedy which is set to hit theaters on July 31st, 2013. It stars Brendan Gleeson, Jayma Mays, Sofia Vergara, Katy Perry, Jonathan Winters, Christina Ricci, JB Smoove and Anton Yelchin.
The second installment of the The Smurfs trilogy revolves around the evil wizard Gargamel who creates a couple of mischievous Smurf-like creatures called the Naughties that he hopes will let him harness the all-powerful, magical Smurf-essence.
The rest of the plot goes like this:
But Gargamel discovers that only a real Smurf can give him what he wants, and only a secret spell that Smurfette knows can turn the Naughties into real Smurfs, he kidnaps Smurfette and brings her to Paris, where he has been winning the adoration of millions as the world’s greatest sorcerer. It’s up to Papa, Clumsy, Grouchy, and Vanity to return to our time, reunite with their human friends Patrick and Grace Winslow, and rescue her!
As usual – click on all these images to take a (much) better look at Gargamel and company, and in case you’ve missed our previous reports – here’s the trailer, some character posters, and more hi-res images from the whole thing.
