THE SMURFS 2 is available on 3D combo pack, Blu-ray combo pack and DVD with UltraViolet from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. This heartwarming new adventure reunites the world's favorite three apple-high creatures, bringing loads of laughs for every member of the family this holiday season.

In this mini-movie inspired by the classic tale "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," the Smurfs learn the traditional values of friendship and family.

Evil wizard Gargamel (Hank Azaria) creates Hackus and Vexy, a pair of mischievous Smurflike creatures, hoping they will let him harness the magical Smurfessence. However, he soon discovers that he needs the help of Smurfette, who knows the secret to turning the pair into real Smurfs. When Gargamel, Hackus and Vexy kidnap Smurfette from Smurf Village and bring her to Paris, it's up to Papa, Clumsy, Grouchy and Vanity to reunite with their human friends, Patrick (Neil Patrick Harris) and Grace Winslow (Jayma Mays), to rescue her.
