Howdy, everyone! I hope that you are well. I have been having problems posting while I was away on vacation so I thought I would try today and so far so good. It has been raining since I came home so today I wanted to take a moment and check out SMURFS: The Lost Village which came out on the 11th. Since I was a child, I have always adored those little blue buddies, and they are at it again! I was actually impressed with the new film and find that it would be a great addition to your family movie night this week.
SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE is bursting with bonus materials on the Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD, DVD and digital releases. Along with filmmaker commentary, there are 10 fun and interactive featurettes, including Meghan Trainor’s “I’m A Lady” music video and “Lost Village Dance Along” where you can join in the Smurf dance party. Get ready to represent your Smurf style with “Smurfify Your Nails” and create a Lost Village inspired manicure, then go inside “Baker Smurf’s Mini Kitchen” to follow along and guess what’s cooking, plus get step-by-step tutorials on how to draw your favorite Smurfs with three “how to” videos. Fans can also go behind the scenes as Demi Lovato auditions for the film and goes through a pretty tough interview with Smurfette herself in “Demi Lovato Meets Smurfette.”
Making an animated movie is no easy task, but in “Kids At Heart! The Making of Smurfs: The Lost Village,” you’ll get a lighthearted look at how the film was made with both interviews from the cast and animators as well as silly re-enactments featuring adorable kid versions of the talented team. And “Making the Song ‘You Will Always Find Me in Your Heart’” goes into the studio with singer Shaley Smith, composer Christopher Lennertz and songwriter KT Tunstall as they record the film’s pivotal song, while in “The Sound of The Smurfs,” fans hear from composer Christopher Lennertz on how he created a magical score to accompany this colorful and exciting adventure. Lastly, don’t miss the sneak peek at Sony Pictures Animation’s highly anticipated film, The Emoji Movie.
Exclusive to the Blu-ray are deleted scenes as well as “The Lost Auditions,” where the superstar cast, each one already perfect for their roles, explore other ideas about which role they should play. And fans of all ages will enjoy going behind-the-scenes with Meghan Trainor as she films the videoto her hit “I’m A Lady,” available exclusively on the digital release of SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE at iTunes, Vudu and Xfinity.

My husband and I both watched this last night and found it fun to watch while giving us a little break from “adulting.” Both of us found it very entertaining but of course it is geared more toward children. The movie takes an all new look at the Smurfs while still keeping with the traditional characters. A short synopsis of the movie is that Smurfette (my favorite character) finds a mysterious map. Along with her BFF Brainy, Clumsy, and Hefty they go on an exciting adventure. They travel through the forbidden forest filled with magical creatures.
I would highly recommend checking out this movie for your next family movie night. I really don’t think you can go wrong. You can check out this film in multiple places including Amazon.
