That's right, day trippers!

In honor of their 50th anniversary, The Smurfs is the latest early-80's family favorite to get the big screen treatment.

And maybe even a trilogy of Smurf movies? Columbia Pictures Chairperson Amy Pascal says there is "potentially a series of films in the making."

The Smurfs will feature voice talents John Lithgow (presumably as Gargamel) and Julia Sweeney (we're thinking Smurfette).

The movie will be in 3-D CGI, unlike the original morning cartoon which is 2-D, or the comic strip that spawned them which written in Belgian so all we could do was look at the pictures and wonder who these little blue people were.

Release is set for Christmas, 2010.
