(NEW YORK) -- The Smurfs return to the big screen Wednesday in a sequel to their hit 2011 film.
In The Smurfs 2, the villain Gargamel kidnaps Smurfette and takes her to Paris. Why? Because he needs her help in transforming some creatures he invented, called the Naughties, into Smurfs. Smurfette's pals call upon their human friends from the first movie -- played by Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays -- to rescue her.
Hank Azaria returns as Gargamel. The voice cast includes Katy Perry as Smurfette and the late Jonathan Winters as Papa Smurf.
The Smurfs 2 is rated PG. [Click here to read a review]
