Have you heard that there’s a Smurfs movie in the works? Yes, all ’80s cartoon franchises are subject to being made into movies. You can watch the trailer here: SmurfHappens.com.
Honestly, I don’t have high hopes for this movie. But the involvement of Neil Patrick Harris is promising.
The trailer gives the impression that they’re going to overdo the use of “smurf” as a means-everything word. If there’s that many in the trailer, how many will there be in the movie?
I find it kinda ironic that one of the Smurfs has a Scottish accent. Weren’t they all from one location? Isn’t it odd that one (and possibly only one) of them would have such a different accent? Oh, wait, I probably shouldn’t try to make this realistic at all. And I’m certainly not complaining, because I like hearing a Scottish accent. At least it’ll have that going for it.
