First Official Smurfs Image Hits the Web

After 51 years in the spotlight, the little blue guys still have that magic touch. This week, fan sites dedicated to Pierre ‘Peyo’ Culliford’s classic comic-book creation, The Smurfs were buzzing about the first poster image released for the Sony Animation movie version of the property.

Directed by Raja Gosnell (Beverly Hills Chihuahua, Scooby-Doo), the CG-animated/live-action mix will be hitting theaters in December of next year. For now, all we can do is hope that the script by J. David Stern and David N. Weiss does them justice, and that the rumors are true and Julia Sweeney will indeed voice the sole female of the village, Smurfette.
