Demi has replaced Katy in a new movie

Singer/actress Demi Lovato has replaced Katy Perry as the voice of Smurfette in new film Get Smurfy.

The Roar hitmaker previously provided the voice for the character in the last two films, The Smurfs and The Smurfs 2, but Lovato has signed on to play the character in the new movie.

There has been no explanation as to why Katy has been ditched in favour Demi, but we'd hazard a guess at her busy touring schedule and or her heavy fee.

She will star alongside Mandy Patinkin, who will play Papa Smurf, and Rainn Wilson, who will voice evil wizard Gargamel, according to

The film is slated for release in March, 2017.
