Yogi Bear didn’t have a great opening weekend at the box office. Still, that won’t stop Hollywood from basing live action movies on beloved cartoon characters. After all, The Smurfs movie is coming next summer. In the feature film, the cute little blue characters are chased out of their village and end up landing in Central Park in the Big Apple.
They’ll be voiced by Katy Perry, Anton Yelchin, Alan Cumming, B.J. Novak, Paul Reubens, Jonathan Winters, George Lopez, Fred Armisen, Kenan Thompson, John Oliver, Jeff Foxworthy, Gary Basaraba, and Wolfgang Puck. On the live-action side are performers Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays, Sofía Vergara, and Hank Azaria as nasty Gargamel.
A new poster for the movie has just been released. Take a look below…
What do you think? Does the plot and poster make you want to see the movie? In theaters or on DVD?
