The mini-movie The Smurfs: The Legend of Smurfy Hollow will get all viewers ready for Halloween, even if it is over a month away. This is a cute story of friendship and jealousy. Of course, we all know that friendship wins out!
When some of the little fellows are stranded in the woods overnight, Narrator Smurf recounts the story of the legend of Smurfy Hollow. It’s the story of the headless horseman who lives in the hollow. Or does he?
Every fall, the Smurfs take part in a contest to see who can gather the most Smurfberrys. Brainy Smurf has been winning every year. So, when they all scatter to collect their Smurfberrys, Gutsy Smurf decides to follow his friend to find out his secret. What he discovers is that Brainy has been crossing through the covered bridge into Smurfy Hollow. So, Gutsy decides to do the same and, well, without giving away the whole story, I’ll just tell you that Gargamel catches three little Smurfs in a trap. It’s teamwork that saves the day.
Hank Azaria voices the evil Gargamel, the character he plays in the live-action Smurfs movies. Fred Armisen continues his voicing talent for Brainy Smurf, and Alan Cumming does the same for his little blue animated character Gutsy. Anton Yelchin also reprises his voicing talent for little Clumsy Smurf.
The Smurfs: The Legend of Smurfy Hollow is a cute and short mini-movie, packs plenty of Smurfy fun into the 22 minutes. It’s rated “G” for everyone.
