July 2007 

After the summer 2007 success of the Transformers Movie, Paramount have earmarked November 2008 for the release of the first full-length animated Smurfs movie!

Of course, not everyone is happy about the prospect of a Smurf Movie, and some people are utterly horrified that there might be three! We have always said that you either love 'em or you hate 'em.

July 2005

On Monday 18 July 2005, a Daily Variety report by Dave McNary, states that Paramount have acquired the film rights to our favourite cartoon characters. They are reported to be developing a 3-D CGI (computer generated imagery) feature with producer Jordan Kerner and Nickelodeon Movies.

Now, for the really exciting news, they are actually planning three movies, yes, a trilogy! In 2008 it is the 50th anniversary of the Smurfs and this is when they plan to release the first film. German sources had told us a few months ago that we would see a smurf "big bang" around the time of the anniversary so it looks like they could be right! Here's hoping we will get more smurf merchandise, new smurf pvc figurines, more super smurfs and a comeback for the wonderful smurf buildings which were discontinued in 2004.

The storyline for the new smurfs movie is very much under wraps although the Daily Variety do mention Herb Ratner as being lined up to write the script.

The Smurfs and the Magic Flute - 1983

And what about the original Smurfs Movie? Because of course the new CGI version will not be the first time we have seen the Smurfs on the big screen. In 1983 "The Smurfs and the Magic Flute" arrived at cinemas across the world, this was the first full-length Smurf motion picture. It featured Handy, Hefty, Brainy, Lazy, Papa Smurf, Jokey, Greedy and many more of your favourite smurfs, although we did not meet Smurfette in this particular film. You can travel to the Smurf Village either by having a Smurf guide or you can seek out the Wizard Homnibus and travel by hypnokinesis. Also, you meet Johan and Pee Wee (sometimes referred to as John and William in video releases of this movie), the wise King, Oilycreep and Earl Flatbroke. We don't meet Gargamel or Azrael in this movie, Oilycreep and Earl Flatbroke are the token villains. Peyo was captivated by the history of the Middle Ages and there is a medieval atmosphere encircling many of his stories including The Smurfs and the Magic Flute.

Smurf Movie ProgramThe original movie programme for the Smurfs and the Magic Flute from 1983 has colour pages with screen shots from the movie, and information about the Smurfs and Peyo their creator, as well as fun colouring pages, activities and puzzles for children. You can even make a Smurfcake with Smurfblue frosting! 18 pages of smurfy fun! We still have some of these available to purchase, please contact us for details.
