The Computer Graphics Magic Behind "Smurfs: The Lost Village"

Written by Jessica Fernandes. Republished with permission from Spark CG Society.

"Smurfs: The Lost Village" is a visual treat. If you grew up reading the comics or watching the tv series, this year’s reboot film will feel visually familiar in all the right ways. A throwback to the original Peyo designs, the film features richly detailed environments, beautifully animated characters and FX that remind us of how an update to a 2D classic should be done.
