The Smurfs 2 Set Visit: Neil Patrick Harris Returns as Patrick Winslow!

The Smurfs 2 Set Visit: Neil Patrick Harris Returns as Patrick Winslow!

We pick up our set visit on The Smurfs 2 in lovely Montreal, with the primary scene we've come to observe. Gargamel's (Hank Azaria) lair, moat and all, is the setting of the climactic showdown as our heroes, Patrick (Neil Patrick Harris) and Victor (Brendan Gleeson) rescue The Smurfs. I reiterate from the first article how incredibly detailed and intricate this set is. The production design and sets on The Smurfs 2 are amazing. You can't help but feel like a kid surrounded by this fantasy environment. The Smurfs 2 is Sony's sequel to the The Smurfs with Neil Patrick Harris, Hank Azaria, and Jayma Mays returning as the primary leads.

As we waited for Brendan Gleeson to finish a shot, we were introduced to another costar of the film, a couple of cute ducks. That's right, ducks. Azrael is not the only animal star of The Smurfs 2. Brendan Gleeson stars as Victor, the goofy stepfather of Patrick. He's turned into a duck by Gargamel during their initial encounter. So on set, you have a bunch of cats and ducks being wrangled by the extremely skilled animal trainers. We each got a chance to play with the ducks. They were damned cute, and to the credit of the trainers, exceptionally tame. It takes years to train the ducks to quack and move on cue, but they do have it down.
