“Get Smurfy” is the title of Sony’s first all-CGI Smurfs film, and features a separate cast from its live-action predecessors.
Director Kelly Asbury says the story “was not fully in the place we wanted it to be yet.”
The all-CG “Smurfs” reboot won’t be released until 2016, but you wouldn’t know that from the aggressive manner in which Sony Pictures Animation is promoting the film.
Sony announced today that their all-CGI “Smurfs” pic, directed by animation veteran Kelly Asbury (“Shrek 2,” “Gnomeo & Juliet”), will be pushed back from its original 2015 release date to 2016.
Besides today’s bonanza of Genndy Tartakovsky projects, Sony Pictures Animation also made it official that Kelly Asbury (“Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron,” “Shrek 2,” “Gnomeo & Juliet”) will direct the upcoming, as-yet-untitled “Smurfs” movie.
