The Smurfs movie posterGood news for fans of The Smurfs and fans of behind the scenes shaky mobile phone footage as two videos have been released showing Hank Azaria (best known as the voice of Moe and various other characters on The Simpsons) dressed up as evil sorcerer Gargamel and running around New York City filming the upcoming Smurfs movie.

The second clip shows Azaria running into Neil Patrick Harris which is either because Harris is co-starring in the film as the character of Johan or he just happened to be walking through town and it's all an incredible coincidence.

The film will mix live action with animation similar to the Garfield movies and will show off the voice talents of Anton Yelchin (Clumsy Smurf), Jonathan Winters (Papa Smurf), Katy Perry (Smurfette), Alan Cumming (Gutsy Smurf), Fred Armisen (Brainy Smurf), George Lopez (Grouchy Smurf), and Paul Reubens (Jokey Smurf).

The Smurfs movie follows the little blue heroes as they are transported from their magical world into ours as explained by the official synopsis:

In the 3D August 3, 2011 release, the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village and they tumble from their magical world into ours – in the middle of Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down.
