Smurfs: The Lost Village is a 2017 American computer-animated fantasy adventure comedy film based on The Smurfs comic series by Peyo, produced by Columbia Pictures, Sony Pictures Animation and The Kerner Entertainment Company, and distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing. A reboot of Sony's previous live-action/animated hybrid films and the third installment in Sony's Smurfs film series, the film was directed by Kelly Asbury from a screenplay by Stacey Harman and Pamela Ribon, and stars the voices of Demi Lovato, Rainn Wilson, Joe Manganiello, Mandy Patinkin, Jack McBrayer, Danny Pudi, Michelle Rodriguez, Ellie Kemper, Jake Johnson, Ariel Winter, Meghan Trainor, and Julia Roberts. In the film, a mysterious map prompts Smurfette, Brainy, Clumsy, and Hefty to find a lost village before Gargamel does. The film introduced the female Smurfs, who appeared in the franchise the following year.
During a smurfboarding trip one day, Smurfette discovers a possible Smurf creature, only to get captured by Gargamel and taken to his castle. There, she accidentally reveals a hat the creature dropped, enabling Gargamel to create a brew that causes him to locate the village on a map. Soon enough Hefty, Brainy, and Clumsy help Smurfette escape and they return to Smurf Village, where Papa Smurf confines them to their houses as punishment for almost disobeying his orders, dismissing their claims of the existence of another Smurfs village. However, Smurfette sneaks out to look for the lost village with Brainy, Clumsy, and Hefty joining her, but Gargamel soon discovers them trying to find the village and heads out with his pet cat Azrael and his pet vulture Monty to stop them.
The four follow the map and end up in various adventures and encountering bizarre creatures, including a colony of fire-breathing dragonflies (who are provoked into attacking the Smurfs by Gargamel) and a cavern maze, from which they eventually escape with the help a stampede of glowing green rabbits. Eventually, the four Smurfs reach to a river where they sail on a handmade raft to get to the lost village, only to encounter Gargamel, Azrael, and Monty again. Following a brief chase, Gargamel is thrown out of his own raft, leading the Smurfs to save him. However instead of thanking them, he pushes them out of their own raft, leaving them to plunge down a waterfall.
Smurfette finds out that there is a lost Smurf village within the depths of the Forbidden Forest and so she, along with Clumsy Smurf, Brainy Smurf, and Hefty Smurf head out on a journey to discover it.
The four Smurfs manage to get away before finally encountering the female Smurfs in the lost village that is known as Smurfy Grove. Smurfette informs all the female Smurfs about Gargamel as they prepare to attack him during night time. 1e1e36bf2d
