This movie is rumored to be a reboot of the Smurfs franchise instead of a direct sequel of the second Smurfs movie.
This film will be fully animated and a prequel to the first two films; this will be the first Smurfs movie to not be live-action.
John Goodman was originally considered to voice Papa Smurf.
The film was initially set to be released on August 14, 2015, but on May 1, 2014, the reboot film's release date was pushed back to August 5, 2016. In March 2015, the release date was again pushed back to March 31, 2017.
The original voice of Smurfette was played by American singer Katy Perry. In this rendition, American singer Demi Lovato plays Smurfette.
