Will a live-action Smurfs 3 ever happen?
1 / 8
The Smurfs started life in a Belgian comic series before becoming a mega franchise.
2 / 8
The live-action movie series began in 2011, but despite bad reviews they were hugely popular.
3 / 8
Both movies were directed by Raja Gosnell, who also helmed the live-action Scooby-Doo.
4 / 8
Smurfs 2 grossed much lower than the first, however, so a third movie was scapped.
5 / 8
Instead, 2017's animated adventure Smurfs: The Lost Village rebooted the franchise.
6 / 8
A 3D Smurfs series will debut in 2020, so a third live-action Smurfs adventure is doubtful.
