Rihanna Will Star In, Produce, And Write Music For “Smurfs”

Smurfette has been a long-standing character in the Smurfverse. Absent from 2011’s The Smurfs, she was a major player in 2013’s The Smurfs 2. In that project, she was voiced by Katy Perry. However, that film was a critical bomb. It holds a 14% critics rating and a 56% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It led to the cancellation of Smurfs 3 and the retooling of the series. Furthermore, that led to Smurfs: The Lost Village, an entirely computer-generated film where Demi Lovato took the role of Smurfette. That film fared a little better, with a 40% critics rating and 56% audience rating. But now, Smurfette will be voiced by a third singer in her third onscreen appearance.
