Sony Pictures Animation has announced their slate of animated feature films for 2015 and beyond. First up is The Smurfs 3, but this time Peyo’s little blue creations are going to be in a fully animated film rather than part of a CG/live-action hybrid like Sony’s previous two Smurfs films. Directing the untitled film is Kelly Asbury (Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, Shrek 2, Gnomeo & Juliet). The new Smurfs feature is scheduled to be released August 2015.
