'The Smurfs 2' First Look Photo Featuring Vexy and Hackus

Christina Ricci and J.B. Smoove voice these new characters known as The Naughties in director Raja Gosnell's upcoming sequel.
Back in April, we reported that actress Christina Ricci signed on to voice the evil Smurfette Vexy in The Smurfs 2, which is set for release next summer. Today, we have our first look at this villainous character, along with Hackus, voiced by comedian J.B. Smoove, who are both known as The Naughties. Take a look at these new additions, and read what director Raja Gosnell had to say about the characters.

The filmmaker revealed that The Naughties are not necessarily "evil," but they weren't brought up in the right environment.

"They're not bad, they're misguided. They're just products of their upbringing. And they haven't had the best upbringing, let's say."


These baddies were created by Gargamel (Hank Azaria) to cause havoc for the little blue creatures. The filmmaker also talked about why they are not blue like The Smurfs.

"Smurfette was a lump of clay that Gargamel put in his cauldron and he painted her blue as a disguise. Using that as a jumping off point, our Naughties are basically clay gray."


The director also shared what really makes these new smurfs tick.

"Vexy is smart, and mischievous and has lots of attitude. Attitude to spare. And she really does want to please her father (Gargamel). Hackus, he's just very funny and very physical. He's the Tasmanian Devil meets a lovable puppy dog."

The Smurfs 2 was released July 31st, 2013 and stars Hank Azaria, Neil Patrick Harris, Brendan Gleeson, Jayma Mays, Jacob Tremblay, Nancy O'Dell, Karim Babin, Gaston Howard. The film is directed by Raja Gosnell.

    Why can't they just make a Smurf movie that's like the cartoons. They did a samshing job with the Smurf village in the beginning of the first... I just wish they'd make something closer to the source material and not bringing the Smurfs into our world or whatever.
