Smurfette Turns Naughty in 'Smurfs 2' Trailer (Video)
Holy Smurf! The blue bundles of laughter and silliness are returning to the big screen in The Smurfs 2.
In the second theatrical trailer for the Sony Pictures Animation property, the Smurfs have to rescue one of their own, but not without light-hearted fun and Smurf-foolery.
The evil Gargamel (Hank Azaria) is intent on making his own creation, the Naughties (Christina Ricci and J.B. Smoove), to capture the Smurfs and steal their magic. They kidnap Smurfette (Katy Perry) and try to convince her to turn "naughty" and give them the secret formula that turns Smurfs blue.
The Smurfs 2 is directed by Raja Gosnell (Smurfs, Scooby-Doo). Neil Patrick Harris returns as Patrick Winslow, savior of Smurfs, along with Jayma Mays, Sofia Vergara, Brendan Gleeson, and Azaria in live-action roles. The star-studded animated cast includes Perry, Ricci, Smoove, Jonathan Winters, Fred Armisen, Alan Cumming, Anton Yelchin, George Lopez, John Oliver, Mario Lopez, and Jimmy Kimmel.
The film is set to be released in 3D on July 31.
