My Thoughts

In Smurfs: The Lost Village, Smurfette finds a map that leads to another smurf village. The only problem is that Gargamel captures her and learns about the village too. Smurfette knows she has to warn the other smurfs before the evil wizard can find them. She enlists the help of some of her closet friends, and they set out to find the village. Along the way, they befriend a few cool creatures that lend some assistance. When they reach the village, they are in for a big surprise. There are smurfs, but not the kind they expected. Before they can all get to know each other, Gargamel shows up, and Smurfette may be the only one who can save the village when they are captured.

The Smurfs television show was the staple of my Saturday morning when I was a kid, so I was super excited when they started putting out new movies. This one was my favorite so far. I liked how they used the classic version of Smurfette's creation, and I loved the new tribe of female warrior smurfs. My daughter was especially fond of Smurf Willow since they share the same name.   The magical forest with it's floating water and florescent colors was really cool. The ladybug who likes to take selfies was fun too. Overall, this was a unique addition to a classic. If you're a fan of the Smurfs, you'll want this DVD in your collection.
