Finally, we can get our first look at the Smurfs, fully rendered and animated, just as they’ll appear in Columbia and Sony Animation’s upcoming 3D film, The Smurfs. For over 50 years, Peyo’s little blue creations have been a mainstay of comic books and television. But now, as evidenced in the teaser trailer below, and introduced by one of the stars Neil Patrick Harris, we can see how the hybrid of live action will mesh with the computer animated Smurfs. It will be the first time the Smurfs have been in theaters since The Smurfs and the Magic Flute in 1983. Except this time, if we’re to believe the clip, the blue folks will be doing battle with Gargamel in Manhattan, the heart of New York City. Check it out, and let us know what you think!
