Smurfs movie in the works


La la la-la la la,

Sing a happy song.

La la la-la la la,

Smurf your whole day long.

The Smurfs are coming to the big screen! Can I get a woo-hoo?

Variety is reporting that the hit cartoon show of the ‘80s is being made into a live action/animated film for the big screen.

The Smurfs was one of my favorite cartoons as a child. I spent many Saturday mornings with my little blue friends that lived in the mushroom village. (Um, it was entirely innocent, I assure you.)

Yes, it was odd that there was only one female in the entire village, but I didn’t care. That Smurfette was one savvy gal if you ask me.

David Stem and David Weiss, of the popular Shrek franchise, are writing the film.

No word yet on which Smurfs will make it into the film or who will voice them. I hope to see some of my favorites. Can you imagine Stephen Colbert as Brainy Smurf or Neil Patrick Harris as Vanity Smurf?

Stay tuned to Tube Talk for any upcoming details on the movie’s completion, casting and release date.

Thanks, Jen. Now I can't get that song out of my head. "La-la-la-la-la-la!"

I can't wait to see this movie. The Smurfs rocked.

Stephen Colbert? Too funny. I think Neil Patrick Harris could be good as any of the smurfs. He does wickedly good impressions of a lot of people.

This just reminds me of the skit on SNL years ago about a Smurfs movie with Sean Connery as Papa Smurf and Celine Dion singing the theme song.
