In this sequel to the hybrid live action/animated family blockbuster comedy The Smurfs, the evil wizard Gargamel creates a couple of mischievous Smurf-like creatures called the Naughties that he hopes will let him harness the all-powerful, magical Smurf-essence. But when he discovers that only a real Smurf can give him what he wants — and only a secret spell that Smurfette knows can turn the Naughties into real Smurfs — Gargamel kidnaps Smurfette and brings her to Paris, where he has been winning the adoration of millions as the world's greatest sorcerer. It's up to Papa, Clumsy, Grouchy, and Vanity to return to our world, reunite with their human friends Patrick and Grace Winslow, and rescue her! Will Smurfette, who has always felt different from the other Smurfs, find a new connection with the Naughties Vexy and Hackus – or will the Smurfs convince her that their love for her is True Blue?

2013 Guide Analysis: "After 2011's "The Smurfs" made an astonishing $560 million worldwide on a $110 million budget, a sequel wasn't just inevitable - it became imperative that Sony Pictures get it out as soon as possible. Two years later comes this follow-up in which Gargamel creates two evil Smurf-like creatures called the Naughties to harness magical Smurf essence. When he discovers only Smurfette can turn the Naughties into real Smurfs who can give him what he wants, he kidnaps Smurfette and takes her to Paris as part of his plan. It is up to Papa Smurf, Clumsy, Grouchy, and Vanity to return to the human world and seek help from the Winslow family again. So assuredly is this already a hit that a third film is set for Summer 2015."
