    The Smurfs™: A Christmas Carol


    [​IMG][​IMG]


    Culver City, Calif. (Sept. 26, 2011) – Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will have families everywhere singing a happy song on Friday, Dec. 2 when Sony Pictures Animation’s hybrid live-action animated worldwide hit feature film, The Smurfs™, becomes available on Blu-ray 3D™, DVD, digital, and a limited edition 3-Disc Holiday Gift Set. When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs™ out of their village, they tumble from their magical world into ours – in fact, smack dab in the middle of 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. Directed by Raja Gosnell (Scooby Doo) and starring Neil Patrick Harris (“How I Met Your Mother”), Jayma Mays (“Glee”), Sofia Vergara (“Modern Family”), and Hank Azaria (“The Simpsons”) as Gargamel, the film features the smurf™-ect voices of singing sensation Katy Perry as Smurfette, George Lopez (Rio) as Grouchy and Jonathan Winters (The Flinstones) as the original Papa Smurf.


    The Smurfs™: A Christmas Carol DVD is an all-new mini-movie, exclusive to the 3-Disc Holiday Gift Set and starring the Smurfs™. Based on the timeless holiday classic, The Smurfs™: A Christmas Carol is available for a limited time only.


    The Smurfs™ will be among the first titles to offer UltraViolet™ so owners of the Blu-ray will be able to add The Smurfs™ to their free cloud-based UltraViolet Digital Accounts, enabling them to stream or download the film most anywhere they can access the Internet!

    My 5yo twins really liked this when we saw it in the theater 3D, so they requested we get it on "3D Blu-ray" before we even left the theater. I have no idea what Sony is thinking not including the new Christmas Special on the 3D version. You would think since its the premium product it would have all the extras like Disney does with their 4 and 5 disc 3D versions....

    I'm delighted to see this will get a 3D release on home video.
