And the Smurfs 3 should go back to the origins of the Smurfs. Director Kelly Asbury (who helmed “Shrek 2” and “Gnomeo and Juliet”) is set to helm the project. A few words from the director:

“I’m really excited about taking the Smurfs in a completely new fresh direction. We’re not making a Smurfs 3 film. Our character designs and environments will be stylistically closer to the original artwork created by Peyo. Our story will explore the beginnings of the beloved little blue creatures in a fun full CG animated comedy-adventure for every generation to enjoy.”
