Celebrate with the Smurfs this holiday season! Heather and I, along with our girls, “Smurfed the whole day long” at Sony Pictures Animation Studios earlier this week. We had a Smurftastic time Smurfing around experiencing the new DVD releases and interactive fun! We put together this list of what’s IT this Smurfy time of year … La la la la la la…. sorry, all this Smurf talk is infectious!
The Smurfs Movie available December 2nd as 3-Disc Holiday Gift Set, Blu-Ray 3D and DVD
I missed The Smurfs debut on the big screen earlier this year. I have to quite honest; I was a bit hesitant about the Smurfs transition from cartoon characters to computer generated 2D/3D figures. Boy, I was pleasantly surprised and really enjoyed the film! The storyline was familiar to us Smurf fans. Gargamel the evil wizard along with his side-kick Azrael scheme to get their hands on their favorite blue people. This time, the movie is set is NYC! My daughter gets a kick out of Azrael’s facial expressions and maniacal laughter! Smurfette is as cute as ever and definitely my daughter’s favorite. I learned some new facts about the Smurfs which was cool. What I really enjoy about Blu-Ray combo packs/gift sets are all the extras! The commentaries, games and bloopers really add to the movie experience and I appreciate the behind the scene moments!
What really completes The Smurfs 3-Disc Holiday Gift Set is the bonus DVD: The Smurfs A Christmas Carol. The Smurfs add their special touches to the classic A Christmas Carol storyline.This mini-movie was directed by Troy Quane and produced by Kurt Albrecht. We got to meet them and could feel their passion about the The Smurfs A Christmas Carol. The two hope that families will make a tradition of watching this title every Christmas. My daughter has requested to watch this over and over… so I’m sure it’ll become a tradition in our house. My favorite element in this mini-movie is that it takes me back to the vintage cartoon style that I love.
The Smurfs movie is definitely family friendly and your kids will love The Smurfs key chain that’s included in the box set! – Tee
