Doesn’t everyone just love the Smurfs? We were fortunate enough to be able to attend a screening of Smurfs: The Lost Village so that we could come back and write about it. This was my two year old granddaughter’s first movie ever. Of course, the seven year old is a pro at watching movies and is like a miniature little movie critic. Right off the bat I can tell you to go see this movie. Take the kids and they are sure to love it.
I don’t want to give away the whole movie but let me say the the animation was fantastic. The voices were great and you just got lost in the movie and all of the cute characters.
Here is just a little bit about the movie but I won’t go too far because I really hate when someone tells you everything.
Naturally, we have Papa Smurf who presides over Smurf Village. His main concern is to keep everyone safe. With 99 boy Smurf’s and only one girl Smurf this is no small task.
The main character is Smurfette. Everyone in Smurf village loves her. Who wouldn’t? She is always in a good mood, energetic, positive, strong-willed and independent. But she is curious about one things. All of the other Smurf’s have names that indicate their traits or activites. For example, Clumsy Smurf is well, clumsy. Baker Smurf bakes. You get the idea, but what about Smurfette? What does her name say about her?
The quest to find out the answer to this leads to an adventure to reach the Forbidden Forest before Gargamel. They are following a map and run into all kinds of situations.
What they find in the Forbidden Forest will surprise you. There is so much activity the the movie seems to go by very quickly. That is how much it holds your attention. IMHO, it is a perfect first movie for a child. I say this because our experience was so good.
BTW, my little movie critic granddaughter said “I loved it. It was funny.” There you have it!
Here are some coloring pages for the kids:
Have fun and let me know if you go see the movie. Tell me your favorite part.
