One of the lovely blue creatures from the Smurfs gang is seen promoting the film solo against a plain white background.
"The Smurfs 2" has unveiled its first ever sneak peek in form of a teaser trailer. The international teaser, released on the Facebook page of Sony Pictures' Hong Kong, gives a look at one of the cute blue creatures in the animated movie. Appearing solo in a plain white background, the lovely character promotes the sequel by reminding fans that the Smurfs gang will greet their fans again in summer 2013.
Along with the short promotional video, a synopsis for the sequel to 2011's "The Smurfs" is also revealed. In this sequel to the hybrid live action/animated family blockbuster comedy, 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.
However, 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?
"Smurfs 2" is scheduled to arrive in the U.S. on July 31, 2013. The voice cast ensemble includes the likes of Neil Patrick Harris, Christina Ricci, Hank Azaria, Katy Perry, Alan Cumming, Jayma Mays, Brendan Gleeson, J.B. Smoove, John Oliver and Alex Martin.
