Studio: Shout! Factory
Running Time: 71 minutes
A magical flute is just what Court Jester Peewit needs to play delightful tunes that make everyone in the kingdom dance – until the dancing turns dangerous. Sir Johan tries in vain to recover the musical instrument, but a thief named McCreep beats him to it, intending to use the flute to steal gold from the King’s subjects. It’s the Smurfs-to-the-rescue when Papa Smurf devises a plan to create a second magical flute, and Peewit and Sir Johan go on a great adventure to find McCreep, win the musical duel and save the kingdom!
I loved the Smurfs when I was younger and I love how they are bringing them back to life on DVD! We actually watched this movie as a family and my boys thought the Smurfs were so funny! I will say they were a little anxious and disappointed that the Smurfs didn’t appear until after 30 minutes, but when they did it was smurfing-fun! If you are looking for a strictly – Smurf movie then this may not be the right one since it is only half-Smurfs (and I don’t remember some of the popular Smurf characters like Smurfette and Gargamuel being in it either) but it is a classic cartoon movie and entertaining in itself. We will be watching this again!
