Thankfully, these are not actually happening…for now. But at one point, they were going to, and this is the test footage. Watch it quickly – if you must at all, because it makes The Smurfs look as faithful to source as Harry Potter by comparison – before it’s taken down. Oh yeah, and that IS Eddie Murphy’s voice.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
