Smurfs’ main voice actors

Rihanna in Smurfs
Smurfette, a well-known character from the Blue animation, will be played by Rihanna in a yet-to-be-titled live-action/animated hybrid film. She made a light-hearted comment about how she auditioned for the role of Papa Smurf but was unsuccessful. The singer for Work remarked that “This is a delight.”
My path into animation has been a lot of joy for me thus far. In most situations, I’m the one who takes the lead, but in this one, I get to take on a part and a role, and I also get the chance to fantasize. In my third trimester, I get to show up in my pajamas and perform a role as a “little blue badass.”
Rihanna will not only feature in the film as Smurfette, but she will also sing, write, and produce the original music for the film in addition to producing it.
It is anticipated that the most recent Smurf film will be made available in theaters on Valentine’s Day in the year 2025.
