When the evil Gargamel (Hank Azaria) captures Smurfette (voiced by Katy Perry) in the sequel to the 2011 film, it’s up to the little blue guys and their human friends Patrick and Grace Winslow (Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays) to travel to Paris to save her. But first, Smurfette has to figure out whether she actually might enjoy being part of Gargamel’s clan. ”The Smurfs 2 has an overall message about families not necessarily being the one you were created by, but the one you were raised by,” says Harris. ”It’s kind of adult, but it’s still a very Smurfy movie.” After all, Patrick’s stepfather (Brendan Gleeson) does turn into a duck.
