Sony Pictures has released three domestic and two international posters for their forthcoming sequel The Smurfs 2.
The film follows on from the first film and sees Gargamel make his own version of Smurfs called “Naughties” in the hopes of bottling the powerful “Smurf-essence.”
Hank Azaria is back as Gargamel, with Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays starring also, and Sofia Vergara, Jonathan Winters, Alan Cumming, Fred Armisen, George Lopez, Anton Yelchin and John Oliver providing voices.
The Smurfs 2 is out in Ireland on July 31st.
In this sequel to the hybrid live action/animated family blockbuster comedy The Smurfs, the evil wizard Gargamel creates a couple of mischievous Smurf-like creatures called the Naughties that he hopes will let him harness the all-powerful, magical Smurf-essence. But when he 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 — Gargamel 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 world, reunite with their human friends Patrick and Grace Winslow, and rescue her! Will Smurfette, who has always felt different from the other Smurfs, find a new connection with the Naughties Vexy and Hackus – or will the Smurfs convince her that their love for her is True Blue?
