'The Smurfs' movie logo first look

"The Smurfs" movie logo is looking kind of smurfy.

Thanks to the folks at Comingsoon.net, here's a first look at the logo for the Columbia Pictures CGI-animated/live action hybrid film, which will be presented at the Licensing International Expo 2009 in Las Vegas.

Considering the audience, mainly little kids who lack the nostalgia that Gen-Xers will have for the blue, three-apples tall critters, the logo looks like it does the job.

The film, written by David Stem and David Weiss, is rumored to star John Lithgow, who could make a pretty convincing and scary Gargamel if you ask us. He just got cast as a serial killer in "Dexter" after all.

"The Smurfs" movie is slated for a December 2010 or a 2011 releease.

What do you think? Smurfy or not smurfy? Do you fear for the Mushroom Village?
