Get to Know the Guys of SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE
Your favorite Smurfs buddies – Hefty, Brainy and Clumsy – and rivals Papa Smurf and Gargamel, are back in Columbia Pictures Animation's "Smurfs: The Lost Village". It's been four years since the last Smurf film and if you want a quick refresher on what to expect in this third film from the series, see the following descriptions below:
Hefty (Joe Manganiello) is that guy who hits the gym twice a day and will make sure you know about it. But just when you think he’s hardcore, he shows you that he’s just a big softie inside. Joe Manganiello voices the role of the blue hunk. “Hefty is the coolest, strongest Smurf in Smurf Village,” says Manganiello.
Clumsy (Jack McBrayer) is all heart and all thumbs. He’s always eager to lend a helping hand or pitch in however he can – even if it might have been better if he’d just stayed home. Luckily, his good intentions and wide-eyed wonder make whatever mess he’s made utterly forgivable, and in the end, he always impresses us all. “He’s such a good fella – the kind of guy you want on your team, so long as your team doesn’t require hand-eye coordination or grace or ability,” McBrayer says.
Brainy (Danny Pudi). When the chips are down, there’s no more resourceful Smurf with a better idea to solve the problem. “Brainy’s the whiz kid on Team Smurf. He’s always trying to figure out how to solve a problem,” Pudi says.
Papa Smurf (Mandy Patinkin). Kind and warm, Papa Smurf’s number one concern is the safety and well-being of the Smurfs and his beloved Smurf Village. “Papa is the patriarch of the Smurfs – he really cares about each and every one of them,” says Patinkin.
Gargamel (Rainn Wilson). Equal parts dangerous and idiotic, Gargamel is the grandiose, self-important, iconic foil of the Smurfs. All he craves in this life is to be celebrated and revered as the most powerful wizard in the world, but the greatest obstacle standing in his way is his incredible ineptitude “I loved the cartoon and Gargamel were always my favorite character. I always related to him – what can I say? Gargamel is greatly misunderstood and needs a little love.” says Rainn Wilson.
Opening across the Philippines on Friday, March 31, "Smurfs: The Lost Village" is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.
