On Saturday, October 19, 2013, Sony Pictures Animation & Sony Pictures Home Entertainment celebrated the new DVD and Digital arrival of “The Smurfs-The Legend of Smurfy Hollow.”
A Halloween party was held for families and their children from 2-4pm at the Sony Pictures Animation Campus, located at 9050 W. Washington Blvd, in the City of Culver City, California 90291. The festivities included a movie viewing of the animated short, free pumpkins to decorate, photos with the smurfs, trick or treating for the kids and an art table. All guests were photographed in front of a green screen and given a printed photograph with a smurf background to memorialize the occasion.
Hit songwriter Fawn said, “Sony did such a great job providing fun for the kids—even us big kids. The movie was a lot of fun and I enjoyed seeing every one in their Halloween costumes.”
Before the cartoon screening began, a video introduction about the feature was presented by the Director, Stephan Frank. He explained that the feature is about relationships between families. “Family for life,” he said.
