Smurfs: The Lost Village (2017) Poster

Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (1)
This movie is a fully CGI remake of the Smurfs franchise, rather than a live-action sequel, with a different cast, except for Frank Welker (Azrael). It was made in favor of a third live-action film after the supposed failure of The Smurfs 2 (2013) (it earned over three hundred forty-eight million dollars worldwide) and the death of Jonathan Winters (Papa Smurf's voice actor from the live-action films).

Clumsy using three apples to fool Papa, may be a reference to Creator Pierre "Peyo" Culliford's original assertion that Smurfs are "three apples high".

Spoilers 

The trivia item below may give away important plot points.

Smurfette was created by Gargamel, and was originally green, dyed blue, and had no tail. Gargamel took a pea and attach it to her with glue. Papa Smurf transformed her into Smurfette through magic including her blonde hair. In this film, Gargamel attempted to return her to her old self, similar to how he did so in one of the episodes in The Smurfs (1981).
