This video is pretty long, but at least it gives us a much better look at the evil wizard Gargamel (Hank Azaria) and his mischievous Smurf-like creatures called the Naughties.
Check out the trailer below (via Yahoo! Movies).
Well, the trailer really seems to up the goofy teen heartthrob shenanigans that young kids may not find humorous.
Opening July 31, the film also stars Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays and features the voices of Katy Perry, Sofia Vergara, Jonathan Winters, Alan Cumming, Fred Armisen, George Lopez, Anton Yelchin and John Oliver.
The second installment of The Smurfs trilogy is being directed again by Raja Gosnell from the script by J. David Stem, David N. Weiss, Jay Scherick, David Ronn and Karey Kirkpatrick.

Here’s the official synopsis:
In this sequel to the hybrid live action/animated family blockbuster comedy The Smurfs, the evil wizard Gargamel creates a couple of mischievous Smurf-like creatures called the Naughties that he hopes will let him harness the all-powerful, magical Smurf-essence. But when he discovers that only a real Smurf can give him what he wants, and only a secret spell that Smurfette knows can turn the Naughties into real Smurfs, Gargamel kidnaps Smurfette and brings her to Paris, where he has been winning the adoration of millions as the world¹s greatest sorcerer. It’s up to Papa, Clumsy, Grouchy, and Vanity to return to our world, reunite with their human friends Patrick and Grace Winslow, and rescue her! Will Smurfette, who has always felt different from the other Smurfs, find a new connection with the Naughties Vexy and Hackus or will the Smurfs convince her that their love for her is True Blue? Returning cast includes Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays, Katy Perry as Smurfette and Hank Azaria as Gargamel. Brendan Gleeson joins the cast as Victor Winslow.
