The folks over at PVCBlue, a site dedicated to all things Smurf, have stumbled upon our very first look at one of the little guys from the upcoming Sony Pictures release Smurfs 3D. The project, which we’ve been telling you about for a while, is in the hands of director Raja Gosnell, who previously brought the world films such as Scooby-Doo, Big Momma’s House and Beverly Hills Chihuahua. This will be the editor-turned-directors first real foray into the world of CG-animation and as you can expect, there’s no pressure when it comes to bringing back our little blue friends.

As you can see from the poster below, the marketing campaign for this movie is doomed by bad Scarface related puns, but the Smurfs themselves don’t look too far removed from the original cartoon by Belgian cartoonist Peyo. Beyond the look, we don’t know what this thing is going to be like, as we’re likely to be without actual footage for quite some time. After all, the movie doesn’t hit theaters until December 17, 2010.
