The small Spanish town of Juzcar (near Malaga), Spain, has been painted blue in preparation for the upcoming Smurf movie.
As previously announced by Sony, Juzcar will host the movie’s world premiere, thus striking up this extremely bright idea.
Once the project was approved by the Andalusian government and the local bishop, work was very steady. 4,200 litres of paint was used in the project, with the help of 12 unemployed brush-owning residents.
The 3D-animated movie, which stars Katy Perry as the voice of Smurfette, is due for release in the United States in late July.
After the Smurfs have been chased from their own world into ours, they "settle" in New York City for the duration of the movie.
Having first been drawn by Belgian cartoonist, Pierre Culliford, back in 1958, the Smurfs made their first TV appearance in 1981.
