Decades later, and Gargamel is still trying to out-smurf the Smurfs.
In the sequel to last summer's 3-D blockbuster "The Smurfs," the '80s cartoon villain creates characters called Naughties in hopes to "finally capture the Smurfs."
The key to his evil plan is Smurfette, and the Naughties are tasked with convincing Smurfette that it's more fun to be badly behaved. From the look of the trailer, it seems she agrees.
Hank Azaria returns as Gargamel, and Neil Patrick Harris is back as the Smurfs' human pal. "The Smurfs 2" will open July 31, 2013.
