It looks like audiences will soon be able to see little blue creatures up close and personal in 3D. With Columbia Pictures set to bring The Smurfs to big screens across the globe in 2010, ComingSoon has learned the studio and director Colin Brady will adapt the classic fantasy property with 3D technology utilizing a mixture of CG and live-action.

Brady--who's previous credits include animation supervision on the Toy Story series and the E.T. special edition DVD--is helming the project, based on a script by David Stem and David Weiss

Plot Concept: "The Smurfs" were created in 1958 by Belgian cartoonist Pierre Culliford, known throughout the world as Peyo. "The Smurfs," originally called "Les Schtroumpfs" in French, were created for a Belgian series of comic books, first as minor characters. The villagers, known for their blue skin and small statures, spawned a line of statuettes, games, toys, theme parks and a hit TV series, which ran as part of NBC's Saturday-morning lineup from 1981-90.

Smurfs 3D will hit theaters December 17, 2010.

What do you Maniacs think? Do you care about The Smurfs hitting the big screen? Will your kids care? Sound off below.

Smurfs! Hooray!

There were Smurf movies in the past. Well, at least one that I know of. I think it was called "The Magic Flute," and I remember this because the voice actors weren't the same as those on the Saturday morning shows.

And that was disappointing to me.

I had Smurf stuff galore: records, toys, sheets, plush dolls (which are on top of my CD collection), a Smurf bank (which is sitting here not too far from my desk), and so on.

Of course, my brother was a Gargamel fan...he broke one of my records because I played them incessantly. (When he did it as a means of defending himself to dad, the argument didn't fly.)

Oh yeah, I also have Smurf glasses - lots of them.

Yeah, Smurfs were my obsession (and still are) -- but it also helped me forget I'd just gone through major surgery at four years old. Someone had also bought a Smurf record player, upon which played Smurf records while I was there in recovery.

And someone had the bright idea to place one or two of the Smurf dolls on top of my blankets facing me so when I woke up, I'd see it.

I know they won't have the same voice actors....I just hope they don't modernize the little wonders.

Smurf will make tons of dough ray me la la la la la la la la la la laaaaa.

I just the Smurf have human nicknames so who knows what they will come up with when the movie wasting humans make them up.  I wonder if they will be modern or medieval like in the toon?

Hopefully, Michael Bay won't have anything to do with this...

This could be a huge kid hit.  I watched a smurf episode recently and holy mother puss bucket it was aweful.  I use to love that show too.  Really liked it when Johan and Peewee were on the show.  How dumb does that sound?  Anyway, I bet I'll take the kids for old times sake.

The important question: will there be a Welsh dub?

SgtTechCom 6/29/2009 5:43:57 AM

Michael Bay wouldn't be interested in this Trash. The smurfs are for Pussy's and Michael directs movies for MEN who like things blown up and ACTION HAHAHAHA.

I just hope they do as good of a job as Alvin & the Chipminks. That movie was funny.

Um... yeah.  I remember watching the smurfs when my age was in single digits, but I really cannot say I held any nostalgia towards it as I grew up, except perhaps when we would joke about how Smurfette was the only female amongst the bunch.

Wiseguy 6/29/2009 6:40:50 AM

I never watched the Smurfs NEVER, so I couldn't care less about this unless they make a rated X version showing a smurfette getting gang banged

Oh so you are interested in the anime version then.
