Columbia Pictures has just unveiled the teaser poster for its family-oriented animated film “The Smurfs 2”. The film is the sequel to the 2011 hybrid live action/animated family comedy “The Smurfs”. The film reunites original cast members Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays, Sofia Vergara, Hank Azaria, Brendan Gleeson, Katy Perry, Jonathan Winters, Alan Cumming, Fred Armisen, George Lopez and Anton Yelchin. In “The Smurfs 2”, 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.
Opening across the Philippines in July 2013, “The Smurfs 2” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.
