More About "The Smurfs"

November 28, 2006 (3:44 am) GMT
"The Smurfs" will be made as a trilogy which has an epic story like "Lord of the Rings" in much lighter and funnier version.

More tidbits have been revealed on "" as producer Jordan Kerner eagerly sat down and shared some info about the upcoming project with Moviehole.net.

Claiming he has been researching the Hanna-Barbera's popular 80s cartoon extensively, Kerner confirmed that the flick is planned to be a trilogy which can fill in all the "holes" of the TV series, making clear the unexplained things happened in the episodes.

"...We've plugged all those holes in a trilogy of three movies, and we reveal things as we go along," so he said, adding that the movie will also provide a back-story of Gargamel, the evil wizard whose main goal is to destroy the Smurfs.

What interesting here is that the movie will be "the animated Lord of the Rings" which has the epic and adventure-packed feel in the vein of the famed franchise, only being done in a lighter and goofier tone.

"It's a comic version, but still very heartfelt, version of Lord of the Rings - though not literally Lord of the Rings, but an epic story like that," Kerner remarked while saying he has already obtained approval from those who presently run the franchise of this little blue juggernaut concerning the concept.
