Smurfs to tour SA during September and October!
Johannesburg, South Africa, 1 September 2011 – In a blue and Smurfy- first, Papa Smurf, Smurfette and Smurf, who star in the upcoming Smurfs 3D movie, will be touring South Africa and meeting their fans in September and October.
Cape Town, Pretoria, Durban and Johannesburg will be hosting the 3 Smurf-Celebrities as they visit South Africa for the first time and spread their special kind of blue fun!
Special events for each venue are planned and include arts and crafts, face painting, Wii gaming and much more.
The film, which releases in South Africa on the 30th of September, follows The Smurfs as they make their first 3D trip to the big screen in Columbia Pictures/Sony Pictures Animation’s hybrid live-action and animated family comedy, The Smurfs. When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the Smurfs out of their village, through a magical portal, and into our world, they land in the middle of New York’s Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down.
The film stars Hank Azaria, Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays and Sofia Vergara along with the voice talents of Katy Perry, Jonathan Winters, Anton Yelchin, Alan Cumming and George Lopez.
