Rihanna will star in Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies’ upcoming Smurf film. The multi-millionaire will be playing as Smurfette. This will be Rih’s second-time voice acting, the first being in Home. The untitled film is going to premiere on February 14, 2025.
Rihanna is also the producer of this film alongside Jay Brown, Tyran “Ty-Ty” Smith, and Ryan Harris. Chris Miller and Matt Landon are serving as co-directors.
The higher-ups of Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon said in a statement,
“On behalf of our studio and our creative partners at LAFIG, we couldn’t be more excited to have found our Smurfette in one of the most beloved stars in the world.”
“With Rihanna’s singular creative appeal and musical talents, there is an enormous opportunity to elevate the cultural touchstone of The Smurfs universe in a way that’s never been done before.”
This upcoming idea for Smurfs has been under heavy review since last year. The most loved blue peeps have several movies about them. Sony’s 2011 film The Smurfs and its 2013 sequel were the first to make way. The latest one was 2017’s Smurfs: The Lost Village.
