Sony and The Smurfs Start Their Halloween Early
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Peyo’s The Smurfs will be celebrating Halloween early this year, via the release of The Smurfs: The Legend of Smurfy Hollow on September 10. The TV special will feature state of the art animation techniques that blend CG animation and traditional hand-drawn techniques. It will also reunite the stars of the blockbuster film The Smurfs 2, such as Alan Cumming, Anton Yelchin, Hank Azaria, and Fred Armisen.
The Smurfs: The Legend of Smurfy Hollow is a 22-minute television special that will follow Gusty Smurf as he goes on a quest to find out how Brainy Smurf keeps winning the annual Smurfberry Hunt every year. The investigation leads him to spooky Smurfy Hollow – right into Gargamel’s trap. Gutsy, Brainy, and Smufette must now set aside their differences in order to outwit Gargamel and escape the legendary ghost of the headless horseman.
