Smurfs is one of those properties that refuses to go away, as here we
are with another entry in the franchise and the third feature length
film in recent years from Sony. At least going the full animated
route this time and keeping live action humans out of it, Smurfs:
The Lost Village (2017) is sure to entertain small children and
remind adults of the classic cartoon series when they were younger.
Aside from that, there really isn't anything really new or
groundbreaking here except for keeping in the tradition of the
property while updating it slightly.
The Lost Village features an all-star voice cast which includes
Demi Lovato (Camp Rock franchise) as Smurfette, Rainn Wilson
(The Office) as Gargamel, Joe Manganiello (Magic Mike)
as Hefty Smurf, Jack McBrayer (30 Rock) as Clumsy Smurf, Danny
Pudi (Community) as Brainy Smurf, Michelle Rodriguez (The
Fate of the Furious) as SmurfStorm, Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable
Kimmy Schmidt) as SmurfBlossom, Ariel Winter (Modern Family)
as SmurfLily, with Mandy Patinkin (Homeland), as Papa Smurf
and Julia Roberts as SmurfWillow.

Dolby Atmos 11.1 track and Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track as well (and of
course several foreign language tracks depending on your territory),
which track you choose to listen to will of course depend on your
home theater specs.
the difference between the 4K UHD disc and the (also included) 1080p
Blu-ray aren't too drastic but still noticeable. Some finer details
are found on the Smurf clothing (including hats) are a bit more
detailed as well as some of the background pieces as well. The film
is quite colorful, throwing back a bit to the animated series in
terms of style, and looks nice on both discs. Audio tracks match

kids or diehard Smurfs and Smurfettes only, there isn't anything too
new in The Lost Village except for a few new characters and a
bunch of older ones. Still, the film is a nice test to see how the
4K UHD format handles animated titles, and in that regard it's a
