In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting race through the Forbidden Forest leading to the discovery of the biggest secret in Smurf history.
In a city of humanoid animals, a hustling theater impresario's attempt to save his theater with a singing competition becomes grander than he anticipates even as its finalists' find that their lives will never be the same.
I don't know where to begin with this movie. It was almost perfect and the soundtrack is just lovely. There are a few tiny anomalies and the evil witch/mother character was a little too close to the annoying female villains in the popular Barbie movies from a decade ago, but the graphics are really breathtaking and I love that there's a solid moral to the story, and a real female empowerment message.
We loved it. I can't say more or it will spoil the effect. Sit back with the AC and your favorite snack. Don't miss a second of it.
If you teach a dance class for kids ages 4-10 it might be a nice year-end treat to watch as a group or to gift the first-year student who has made the most progress this year. :)
